Mooie ecologisch stenen huis in Dalmatië.
This beautiful stone house is found in the picturesque village of Old Podaca which is nestled at the foot of the
Biokovo mountain range, 250 metres above sea level. The village is now completely deserted and you, as our
guests, will be the sole inhabitants of this special place. Sitting on the terrace under the grapevines and watching
the sun set over the Mediterranean, you can now begin to relax far from the madding crowd. Up here the air is
fresh and clean, redolent with the fresh smells of herbs and pine forests. The only disturbance in the stillness will be
the calming sound of birdsong.
Despite this splendid isolation, the pristine Adriatic with its magnificent bays and beaches is just over a kilometre
away, as are bars and restaurants, a supermarket and post office, as well as the main bus route along the
Dalmatian coast which enables access to the prime tourist sights of the Adriatic. Even though Villa Anka is far
removed from the hustle and bustle of the 21st century, the farmhouse can be easily reached by a sealed road
directly from modern day Podaca, which is now situated on the main highway and lies halfway between Split and
The old village of Podaca was abandoned after a major earthquake in 1962 when its inhabitants, like those in
similar settlements up and down the coast, moved down to the seaside. The original village is considered to be the
most significant historic village in the area. In the centre of the town is one of the most important pre-Romanesque
churches in all Dalmatia, the church of St. John the Baptist which was built in the 11th and 12th centuries. Beside it
stands the Baroque parish church of St. Stephen the Martyr, consecrated in 1762 and built on the site of the
remains of the similar church that existed even before the arrival of the Turks in 1499. The church tower was built
in 1888 by a rich villager who was one of the builders of the Suez Canal. Medieval tombstones were incorporated
into the base of the tower but one is still to be found in its original position next to the church. At the old approach
to the village stands a round stone tower on the cliff edge. This tower was built in the 15th century to protect the
village from the Turks. Part of the original ramparts can still be seen today. In addition, dotted around the village,
are four small chapels dedicated to the Virgin Mary built between 1881 and 1901 and where locals still place fresh
Free access to the Biokovo Nature Park is available to you directly from Old Podaca. The Park was gazetted in 1981
due the its extraordinary biological diversity and unique geology. Within its 19,500 hectares there are many
kilometers of mountain trails for walking and cycling.
The house is let as an ecologically clean house.
The farmhouse can accommodate up to 8 people and there is plenty of parking. A special feature of the house is
that pets are most welcome.
