Escape to a stone house nestled among the olive groves, with minimalist furnishings and an open fireplace, just a step away from the sparkling blue sea, inviting you to create the most unforgettable memories of your life. These houses were built to be nestled one next to the other, improving the insulation while ensuring that they are located in the most suitable micro-climate locations, with the most sunshine hours during the year and protected from the cold, North-Eastern wind Bura.
In the past, people only used what was directly available to them, and as a result, the cost of living was very avaricious. Nature gave people just the bare stone, which they utilized to the best of their knowledge, building almost everything from it, including houses, plots, yards, and even furnishings. Stone houses have many advantages, with their thick stone walls and wooden floors making them great insulators, while natural materials are the most suitable for living in. The beauty of the stone and Mediterranean architecture provide incredible harmony, creating a relaxing atmosphere.
The Dalmatian coast is one of the few places in the world where you can find such an amount of sea, sun, and relaxation, while the islands provide places of relaxation and untouched nature where you can forget about everyday stress.
Until the beginning of the twentieth century, houses on the islands were inhabited by a few generations of inhabitants who lived together under the same roof, with an average household counting around twenty members. However, due to economic exhaustion, natural disasters, and a vine disease raid, many islanders decided to search for a better life on other continents and states all over the world, leaving their stone houses behind. Over time, these stone houses became abandoned and remained as monuments to some other epoch.
However, with the rise of tourism in the last two decades, these forgotten and abandoned stone houses have been rediscovered as a better option for spending a vacation than a crowded hotel resort. With just a few mouse clicks, people can find the perfect destination to spend their holidays, and these stone houses have become an ideal option for those seeking a unique and authentic experience.pasman, robinson
