The old Dalmatian rural Dvor Sv. Juraj, dating back to the beginning of the 20th century bathed in sunlight and enveloped with scents dominates the estate which extends over 30,000 m2, was recently completely renovated in authentic style.
Situated on the wondrous Island of Hvar from which on clear nights one can see the lights of Italy, surrounded by cypress trees, lavender, rosemary and sage, it will provide an unforgettable romantic holiday within a labyrinth of stone fences, in the quite stillness of a field, 30 minutes from the town of Hvar, 2 hours from Split.
The Dvor Sv. Juraj is nestled in a field of lavender, rosemary, fig and olive trees, and it used to offer respite to field workers while working in the fields, a place where they could escape the hot Mediterranean sun or warm themselves by a hot Dalmatian hearth, drink a glass of wine and eat good local cheese and pršut (smoked ham). Like many other Courts throughout Dalmatia, this one still lives the life of our ancestors, surrounded by pristine nature.
The Dvor was built from Hvar grey stone, the same one used to build the 3 km away hundred-old village Humac, harmoniously situated on the throne of the Island of Hvar, in the centre of a stone field, in a sea of stillness surrounded by endemic plant varieties. It originally emerged as a separate hamlet in which general food staples were cultivated, the most important ingredients of the popular and healthy Mediterranean cuisine which has become so popular of late, and today continues the tradition of production of superior olive oil, wine and spices.
