Keen to have an off-the-grid experience without electricity, running water, wifi or any kind of technology? Than this is the place !
Our home is situated on the tranquil southside of the island of Hvar with a long dirt road as only access. A nightmare for some, a blessing for others as it offers you a small, hidden paradise away from the hustle and the bustle of sizzling Hvar !
The beaches are just a few meters away so prepare to have a wonderful experience right at the sea in a beautiful, natural environment.
There's also a small eco resort nearby with a beach bar if you want to socialize and enjoy a sundowner with fellow travelers !
