About the Owner

Hi, I'm Zarko, one of the things which makes me feel lucky is to live in such a beautiful corner of the world - Hvar island. I like simple things in life: spending time with my familly, walking my dog along the sea shore, creating something with my own hands, having a laugh with my friends ...

I'm a sociable person who likes to travel and meet new people and talking about anything or nothing.

I consider myself as an open minded person and I'm always trying to keep positive perspective.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We spent five lovely days here. We arrived really late (past midnight) in what seemed a deserted village at the end of the world :) Only the next morning did we realize that the location was perfect: quiet, private villa with a large garden, barbeque, wifi, even sea view, in the middle of a small remote village consisting of very old stone houses. Zarko was really kind and provided us with lots of information about the island. I must admit we were lucky since he works at the tourist information point in Stari Grad :) Zukova bay is relatively close to the village and worth visiting. For visiting other parts of the island (like Hvar town, Jelsa), I recommend hiring a car, unless you have one or you are fit and feel like trekking. Most of the beaches on the island are with pebbles or flat stones. R.

Peaceful location

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have just returned from a very peaceful and relaxing 2 week stay at this cottage. The property description is accurate. The property is located in the centre of the village of Rudina near Stari Grad but it is a quiet location. Zarko lives with his family next door but guests have total occupancy of the property and are not disturbed. The property is well equipped and has a strong internet connection. It is split over two levels with one bedroom downstairs and two upstairs connected by an external stone staircase however there are bathrooms on both levels.

The garden and courtyard are particularly attractive and Eco friendly and well planted and provide a great habitat for many butterflies, birds and frogs.

I would recommend that guests have a car as the location is rural and a few kilometres from the attractive town of Stari Grad. Access to the parking area is via a very narrow approach through the village so a larger vehicle would have to be left a short distance from the property in a communal area but this appeared to be very safe. There a many interesting walks to be made directly from the property.

Zarko is particularly friendly and helpful and is very knowledgeable about the island and the nearby mainland as he works at the tourist office in Stari Grad.

I would very much recommend the property for a relaxing holiday in a location which is peaceful yet within easy travelling distance of both Stari Grad (5 mins) and Hvar town (30 mins) on this attractive island.

Further Details:

There is so much to say about Island of Hvar but I’ll try to keep it short and concise. It is one of the most beautiful Croatian islands, a place of rich history, sunniest place in Croatia lately well known between young people as a party destination. It is also a place with three values listed on UNESCO World heritage list. Stari Grad is Aristotel’s contemporary, established by Greeks in 384 BC as a polis or city-state of Faros and it’s been populated ever since. (For those who would like to know more visit: http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/1240/)

Stari Grad lies hidden at the bottom of a narrow eight kilometers deep bay, closed in from the northern side by a low-lying peninsula Kabal. Rudina is an uphill village which administratively belongs to Stari Grad. Surrounded by olive groves, the village is the main gateway to Kabal - swimming and recreation zone of Stari Grad.

The population of the area is approximately 3000 and the local economy has shifted trough the century from fishing and agriculture towards tourism.

The cottage is in Rudina village. Stari Grad town is 2km far from the village. Shops, bar and restaurants are there as well. The place is suitable for quiet and peaceful vacation. Closest shore is 10 minute walking distance.

The house is available in off season (November to April) as one bedroom apartment, suitable for max 2 person.
