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.
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!
The location was so great, wonderful view, so very nice people, we really enjoyed our stay - thank you, Rubinić- family!
We spent two weeks there in October, trekking along the coast, bathing, having cultural experiences, being almost alone in the world and the nature, so relaxing!
Mario made us feel very welcome by leaving a fruit basket and some wine for us, since it was our honeymoon. The house was exactly as pictured and expected, but somehow even better! We felt secluded but safe in Humac.
Mario and his family provided a warm welcome when we arrived. They showed us around and explained the facilities of the premise thoroughly: the place runs on solar power and heating. Everything worked well and we had an excellent stay. This is really an extraordinary place, so quite and peaceful. Perfect for prolonging the summer.
The house and the place itself was even more beautiful than we could imagine. The house is small but very cosy and clean. Everything is made with a good taste and the attention to the details. The kitchen is a little bit small but it doesn't bother because still you have there all the necessary things. The position of the house is excellent - I would dream to have a house in such a place. The view is fantastic and the hosts have made everything for the guest to enjoy it - there is a table outside the house for dining, another small table with the chairs is positioned on a spot for the best view of the sea and the islands, the hammock between the trees - for lazy midday hours and also two lounge chairs for taking sun bath. The house is isolated yet there is a konoba right behind the house - so, if you don't want to cook yourself and don't feel like driving to some restaurant in the town you can just go out and try great wine, olives and fantastic cheese - all made by very nice and kind people - Keti and Jakov. We'd like to thank our hosts for a great week we've spent in this paradise (and we've asked for another week but unfortunately for us it was booked already)! Special thanks to Keti and Jakov! Hope to come back one day.
