Rocky hills, knotted olive trees, dusty roads, low walls and old stone houses, turquoise coves, and the crystal-clear sea: Brač is the largest of Croatian islands, which means there is plenty of space and tranquility here.
Split, the magnificent, old Roman city, is located vis à vis on the mainland and is only a 30-minute boat ride away. Beginning somewhat farther north is a wonderful rocky Croatian coastline with romantic coves. In the other direction out to sea are pristine, almost untouched islands such as Vis or Bisevo.
Brač is famous for its olive oil, its delicious lamb, and its glistening white limestone, which was treasured by the Romans and even used in the White House in Washington. The houses of the Lemongarden are also built out of this limestone.
The largest city on Brač is Supetar with 4000 residents. Sutivan, the small fishing village where the Lemongarden is located, is only briefly mentioned in most Brač travel guides, and this is a very, very good thing.
