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.
When my wife and I arrived at the house, Mario and his brother were awaiting. They showed us around the house, and left a map of the island and where we would find the closest beaches. The house was great and the property/view was amazing. When coming be prepared as the closest grocery store is 6 Miles/10 Km away in Jelsa. There is one restaurant 50 Meters away, and is wonderful along with the owners who run it. Some of the nicest and most accommodating people I have ever met. This would house would easily get five stars in every category, except in no fault to Mario's, our stay was encountered with the unlikeliest occurrence of rain. Would come back anytime!
Gorgeous, gorgeous place! So special to be on top of the mountain next to the abandoned village of Humac surrounded by space, amazing views and that beautiful sea breeze. Mario and his family made it all so easy. Fresh food and wine, great advice and everything you could need (and nothing you don't....perfect)!
This place is everything we dreamed of. The listing almost looked too good to be true, but every bit was as magical as it seems in the photos.
Quiet, beautiful landscape. It is very close to the very intriguing shepherd's village of Humac, which we took a whole day to (website hidden) in the home was an easy and enjoyable experience.
Mario & his brother met us at the exact time we agreed, are very nice young gentlemen. Showed us around the property and the equipment they've installed - solar panels, cistern for rain water.
Fascinating stay, comfortable, spectacular. We will remember this fondly our whole lives.
Mario i jego brat to wsapniali gospodarze, przygotowali domek pod nasz przyjazd bardzo dobrze - domowe wino, suszone figi czy drewno do kominka - wszystko na nas czekało. Nie było problemu z późnym przyjazdem.
Domek dla nas fantastyczny - cicho i spokojnie - widoki na gwiazdy, morze i wyspy - niezapomniany. Nie ma problemu żeby pojechać tam z dziećmi - mają super miejsca do zabaw - a dzikie konie to świetna atrakcja :)
W 100% polecamy - genialne miejsce wypadowe do eksplorowania wyspy - oraz do odpoczynku. Bardzo chętnie wrócimy w to miejsce.
Mario and his brother are wonderful hosts, they prepared the house for our arrival perfectly - home made wine, dried figs or wood - everything was waiting for us. There was no problem with our very late checkin as well.
House is fantastic - quiet and peaceful - views over the starts, sea and Islands was unforgivable. This place is also kids friendly - they have a lot of space to play, and wild horses are a great attraction :)
We recommend this place and this host in 100% - perfect place for nature lovers, both for exploring the island and just relaxing. We would be glad to come back to this place one day :)
We absolutely loved Mario's place. The house and view are both stunning. Everything you need is there, plus wine and snacks from the family that were amazing! We hiked through the abandoned village, rode the provided bikes, hung out with the free roaming horses and enjoyed being totally away from everything. It was truly a total vacation from the world. Mario was always prompt and helpful via e mail and was great in person as well.
Amazing experience at Mario's! Stunning place in an abandoned town. We are from New York, and it was pretty mind blowing to have that level of silence and to be able to see so many stars! Mario and his brother met us and showed us around. They brought us homemade wine and dried figs and candied orange peels which was so kind of them and all was delicious. They answered all of our questions and were nice, fun, and easy to talk to. The place is even better than it looks in photos. Our time there and discovering Hvar island was magical! Definitely stay here!
We spent wonderful holidays in Marios house! This is amazing calm and peaceful place in the mountains of Hvar! Everything was like in the description on the Internet and Mario and his brother, Jakov, were great and helpful hosts!
We appreciated the wonderful view, the garden and the nature! We had a lot of fun with our bikes!
We recommend this house to everyone who looks for a calm and peaceful place in the nature!
