Stubborn love for tradition preserved in stone

Set off for Draga in the hinterland of Primošten

If you want to take a break from the everyday stress and breathe the invigorating rural air in peace and the idyll of the Dalmatian hinterland, set off for Draga in the hinterland of Primošten. After ten minutes’ drive from the clear sea and sunny beaches of Primošten, you will see scattered villages.

Around the villages, through the persistent work of stubborn and hardworking peasants, the rocky place has been turned into fertile soil for growing olives, vines, figs, almonds and other crops typical of the Central Dalmatian rocky hinterland.

Baćulov dvor

When you reach Draga through narrow cobbled streets you will reach Baćulov Dvor, where generations of our family have lived since the 16th century.

The courtyard itself is a central place surrounded by stone houses with stone roofs and together they form a residential and commercial unit.

This is a typical example of traditional construction in Primošten divided into residential and commercial part.

Old oil mill

We are especially proud of our old oil mill, which was once one of the oldest in Dalmatia. It was built in 1867 and the stone mill was brought from Naples.

The oil mill stopped working in 1962 when the local Agricultural Cooperative built an electric oil mill.

Feeling of slowness and ease of living

Sitting in the courtyard, on the terrace overlooking the village or in the tavern, you will be overwhelmed by the feeling of slowness and ease of living typical of the Mediterranean that will refresh and reset you.

In this special ambience, through the hospitality of good-natured hosts, you will understand the secret and importance of the coexistence of man and nature and the true love for tradition and its preservation.
