Reviews
Heading past the coastal resort from Hvar town, there lies the most beautiful village, the abandoned ethno-eco village of Malo Grablje.

To wander around this village, abandoned in the 50’s, amidst a backdrop of cliffs, gives you an insight into authentic Dalmatia. These homes were relinquished as the locals moved to Milna, in search of a better life, and more economic stability.

The village however, is not totally abandoned. Your host has restored a family home into a small family restaurant, offering traditional meals prepared with ingredients found in the surrounding area of Malo Grablje. Living only by the food and products of this zone, from wine to olive oil, rosemary, sage, capers, and basil. This abandoned village is a testament to the tenacity of a strong-willed culture. Such a beautiful and tranquil setting. Return to the town of Hvar after an amazing dinner.
