Villa Johanna


Welcome to Villa Johanna, a luxury 6-bedroom villa located on the Island of Brac, Croatia.

Villa Johanna, including interior décor, was designed by Federico Pace, a Milanese architect. While it echoes some features of a traditional Venetian villa, Villa Johanna has an uncluttered, contemporary vibe with a subtle homage to Frank Lloyd Wright and the Art Deco period.

The villa boasts a beautiful collection of paintings and objets d’art, from Roman amphorae to a mid-century vase collection. Representational art includes works of the well-regarded Zagreb contemporary abstract painter Vatroslav Kulis, fascinating space probe art photographs by Michael Benson, and a few works by British street artist Pegasus, the “me-too” Banksy.

With beautiful sea views towards Split and the inland mountains, villas Johanna and Lucia are embedded in two hectares of flowery gardens and a large lawn perfect for a game of croquet or badminton. The gardens at the property contain a wide variety of citrus, fig, pomegranate, apple, nut trees, and olives. The pathway is suitable for wheelchairs and features shaded seating areas to rest.

The villa is on the edge of the Village of Skrip, Island of Brac, Croatia. Skrip is a beautiful ancient Roman village containing the Museum of Olive Oil and the Museum of Brac. A perfect way to spend a quiet morning. There are lovely beaches in Splitska and on the road to Supetar. There are also marvelous beaches with easy bathing in Postira.

The villa’s location on the northern coast of Brac is fortuitous – as the immediate area boasts a wealth of things to do and is the most accessible part of the island to Split, a 25-minute water taxi away.

Brač Airport is 35 minutes by car. The small airport has substantial private jet traffic, a few commercial routes, and a charter service from Vienna, Klagenfurt, Ljubljana, and Germany.

Split is 20 minutes by water taxi from Splitska or Supetar and 50 minutes by ferry from Supetar. A car ferry goes almost every hour in the summer season. A fast hydrofoil runs to Split from Sutivan in the summer 3-4 times a day and takes 25 minutes. Water taxis can be ordered throughout the season.
