FORGET THE REALITY – EXPERIENCE THE BEAUTY OF SMALL DALMATIAN PLACES
LEARN THE LIFE OF ORDINARY DALMATIAN PEOPLE

We leave towards the island Brač from our small port Sumpetar.

Pučišća – is the cultural centre of the island Brač. The stony land - the people in Pučišća lived from stone and for stone. In times of Renaissance here flourished the productive stone-mason’s workshops. Numerous buildings worldwide were built from Brač stone. The most prominent sacral monument is the church of St. Jerome, built in 1566. In it is treasured the oldest written document in Croatian, “The Charter of Povlja”, dating from the year 1184. In 1516 the first private school on island Brač was opened in Pučišća.
Knowing that summer, sun, and sea are barely enough for a quality tourist offer, we emphasize to our guests the cultural values from the rich Croatian past.
Sućuraj – we arrive in a small port in the south- eastern part of island Hvar. The Augustan monastery was built here in the 16th century. The church of St. Anthony was built in 1663. There’s also the famous baroque fortress from 1613. In this island settlement you’ll get to know the genuine fishermen’s life.
Korčula – we present you the beautiful middle-age fortified town, whose walls served as defence against the enemy’s attacks from the sea. It’s the birthplace of Marco Polo. In the old town there are lots of historical and cultural monuments. If you’re staying in Korčula during the summer cultural events, we advise you to see the traditional sword dance “Moreška” (Moresca).
Vela Luka – we’re sailing in the cove on the western side of island Korčula, the natural shelter to sailors from the south wind. The tourist and fisherman’s port offers daily the rich assortment of fish, caught just before the fishing boats have entered in Vela Luka.
There’s also a health resort with curative mud for people recovering from rheumatism and other bone maladies.
The natural monument “Vela špilja” stands out with its beauty.
Hvar – meet the most trendy tourist centre of the Middle Adriatic with a centennial tourist tradition. The town with most sunny days on the Adriatic coast is abundant with cultural-historical heritage which originated between the 13th and the 14th century. In 1612 in Hvar was built the oldest communal theatre in Europe.
Starigrad – an old port founded in the 4th century B.C. by the Greeks and named Pharos. The whole island was later named after that ancient Grecian town. In the town there’s a Romanesque-gothic church from 1332, and a Renaissance church from 1569.
The most prominent building in town due to its beauty and cultural value is “Tvrdalj”, the home of the famous Renaissance poet Petar Hektorović, built in the form of a fortress.
Bol – the oldest town on island Brač. In the past it was populated with fishermen and wine-growers. Even today the wine from Bol offers the taste of the Mediterranean sun. The stony “riva” stretches along the crystal blue sea. In the background rises a mountain which changes its colours, depending on the time of day or the year. Due to the different winds that blow here, it’s the most famous site on the Adriatic coast for windsurfing. The most beautiful Adriatic beach “Zlatni rat” (Golden cape) is situated to the west of Bol. The peak visibly shifts with the tidal movements. The church of St. John and Theodore was built in the 11th century. The museum in the Dominican monastery has a rich collection of pre-historic and antique exhibits of architecture and sculpture. In the final reckoning, who could resist Bol?
Milna – a small village founded 400 years ago, situated in a cove with the most indented coast on Brač. During the Napoleon’s conquests the French built a fortress “Baterija” on the very entrance in the cove. The first church was built around 1600, and in 1783 the new church of St. Clement was built. There are beautiful sand coves for tourists - Pasika, Maslinova and Osibova. The appearance of the village, its monuments and ambience, possess that quiet and old beauty of the seaside village.
Sumpetar – at the end of our seafaring, we ask you to be dear guests at captain Vedran and his family. Here’s a little surprise waiting for you: the “captain’s dinner”, a genuine Dalmatian cuisine on the terrace of our family house.
