Our house is located in a peaceful and quiet fisherman’s village, one of two main villages, Suđurađ on Šipan Island which is part of the „Elafiti islands“ near Dubrovnik. They are called „Elafiti“ since the Roman period. For its beauty, picturesque countryside and peace it was recognized by Dubrovnik’s nobility very early in time of Dubrovnik’s Republic and they built about 40 mansions and about 30 churches. Some of them already had been built in the middle-ages, a lot of them however have collapsed into ruins. Much is not known about the history of Šipan, but a defence-wall dated from the Illyrian times was found and Romans have been here. Proof of this is villa Rustica in Šipanska Luka and the preserved stones with inscriptions.
In Suđurađ, directly from the harbour lies the renaissance fortress of the family Stjepović-Skočibuha, started in 1529. While exploring the beauties of island , from Suđurađ, you can visit the view-point at St Nikola Church (about 30 minutes walk away) and continue onto the old church and tower at Pakljena (40 minutes from Sudurad) which dates from 1563. During the relaxed walk you will be delighted with crystal clear sea, the sound of silence and crickets and scented pine woods.
Our house is just short walk from the port. House retains original features such as original stone sinks, stone entrance way and tiled floors. The older part of the house has three bedrooms (two with double bed and third with two single beds) and living room.
