Keen to have an off-the-grid experience with limited electricity, no running water, no 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 stone's throw 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 !
DIY and building projects
This project could involve children. For more information see our guidelines and tips here.
You will experience this island from a total different perspective ! Genuine local experiences meeting locals in small, authentic villages, enjoy winetastings at one of the many vineyards, discover other homemade products such as rakija, prosek, lavender oil, jams and so much more. The island is also home to many cultural heritages such as the Starigrad UNESCO plains or the fortified city of Hvar, the oldest Croatian town of Starigrad, etc.
Just join us here and soak up the real Dalmatian lifestyle !
