A semi-detached house on two levels, situated on the pebble and untouched beach in a beautiful bay on the island of Hvar, directly facing the church on the right. Each floor has a surface of 25 m2, total of 50 m2, and requires complete renovation.

Its uniqueness is that it dates back to the 15th century and, as such, is the oldest building in this picturesque cove. According to the traditions of the locals, with some material proofs and historical records, in this house, the famous old Croatian poet from the 16th century wrote one of his most famous works. In front of the house on the beach there is an old stone slab, and according to the oral tradition, it was the table where the poet wrote. It is, alongside the house, an immensely worthy relic of history and Croatian cultural and historical heritage and the magical touch of the present and the past, in the most reputable and most original sense.

The additional value of this house is the information that there is a well on the ground floor, inside the tavern of the house, a well with a source of crystal clear and potable water, the only one in the whole bay.

Next to the house lies the beautiful little 16th century church, built in honor of the Renaissance nobleman from Hvar, from which the ancestors of today's owners then bought the entire bay. In this church, the locals of a nearby village gather in traditional festivals and processions each year, and it is considered that this sacrament has for centuries been protecting the bay and the house itself.

All the above-mentioned details of the house best reflect the cultural and historically unique dimension of the building, and complete the magical combination of untouched natural beauty, the ambiance of oasis of peace and intimacy, and the rich historical heritage.
