We are not going to compete with the mega all-inclusive resorts, but instead, we are going to cater to all of you who want to relax in a quiet location without the constant attention. Having the laid-back vibe among the pine trees and next to the 5 beaches even the most spoiled guests will be more than happy.
Our cuisine features locally sourced organic ingredients prepared in front of you by our chef including breakfasts, lunches and dinners.
You will be hiding out in air-conditioned private rooms, snorkel the bays of the whole island, exploring the beauty as active as you would want and lounge at the beaches close by.
How YOUR DAY might look like
A typical day starts with a morning wakeup call with some relaxing music and a cup of freshly cooked herb tea made from the herbs picked up around the island of Vis.
You will be invited for an half an hour exercise or yoga on the beach around Rukavac where you will feel of the wind breeze and the ocean spirit. Leisurely breakfast with a homemade bread and marmalades and tons of homemade delicatessen and perhaps a chat with the guide about the best activity for the day will be around 9:30 (or later if you decide so).
Morning activity may include sea kayaking from Rukavac to the Green Cave or anywhere around the island. Another possibility is a mountain bike around the island interiors among the vine grows or hikes to the mountain hut of St. Andrija and down to the town of Vis. The activities depend on the weather or your ideas of how you would want your holiday day spend.
Packed lunch or lunch at home will be served around 1 pm. In the free afternoon you will be able to enjoy the serenity of the beaches around Rukavac or do some more sporting activities on your own.
You might just sit in the house garden and read all the novels brought from home. Afternoon cake and tea will be served around 5 pm. Dinners will be either eaten home or we will take you to the best local restaurants for a cuisine dinner.
Be active as much (or as little!) as you like.
We have planned the actively-relaxing week carefully, making sure that everything that you will be doing is going to be interested and enjoyable, with quiet times whenever possible.
Also, no two days are going to be the same and you will always have plenty of time for yourself and you will be able to relax and sightsee as you wish.
You are going to be much free to choose the way you will be wanting to spend your days depending on how energetic you will feel! But at the same time, we have tried to think about every single possible detail (food, locations, activities) so you cannot be bored. And the food we prepare is good!!!!

Having an amazing rocky island with coves and small bays close to the shore and all of these coupled with the pristine water we believe that snorkelling in Vis island is absolutely amazing.
