ABOUT VILLAGE HUMAC
A unique example of well preserved rural architecture, formerly a pastoral village, Humac originated in the 17th century. At the height of 350 m above sea level, you have a magnificent panoramic view of all the surrounding places, coves, the island of Brač and Makarska’s coast. The charm of this village lies in its harmonious stone houses, courtyards, balconies, narrow streets and nature which all give an inspiring sight.
Humac is a very old village where man has been living for centuries. There are many simple houses made of stone in its surroundings called trim, built without binder in a way that they become narrower towards the top. Many of them have their original foundations from early Stone Age. Inhabitants of Humac have been occupied with cattle and wine growing for thousands years, and in around 1950 they started growing lavender. In the last few centuries people didn't live in Humac, but spent time in Humac during major agrarian works.
Mario's house is an excellent location. This house has a good soul.
With a fireplace, amazing view, quiet. Very clean, friendly and easy to communicate with. Sure we will come back soon with friends. Thank you Mario for everything.
Our three night stay at Mario's farm house was a delight and a highlight of what was an amazing holiday to Croatia. The setting of this house is absolutely insanely beautiful and the local beaches provide a relaxed and quiet corner of the island with clear water and great snorkelling.
Mario was available whenever we needed anything and happy to help with any issues. The house itself is incredibly beautifully renovated and comfy and spacious. Despite it being end of September, the solar power kept us going fine, and Mario topped up the generator after a cloudier than usual day. The stars that can be seen from this country escape are stunning and i highly recommend a visit here. We certainly hope to return.
As an aside, the restaurant in the little village is also well worth a visit. Great food and lovely service. Again, views to die for! The whole experience at this location was just magic.
Das Haus ist das absolute Highlight des Urlaubs gewesen. Alles war genauso wie beschrieben. Die Vermieterfamilie ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Als Gastgeschenke gab es guten Wein und Prosek und Feigen und Weintrauben. Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Empfehlenswert sind auch der Besuch der Höhle mit Jakov (Sohn der Familie) und das Restaurant im Schäferdorf (100 m entfernt). Wir würden jederzeit wieder dort Urlaub machen.
