- THE STORY OF THE HOUSE AND THE OWNERS:
Villa Maruka is a typical Dalmatian old house built by my family in the 19th century. My father was still born in this house, but than it had been empty for almost 50 years, until we renovated it in 2007/2008 and gave her new life. Before the construction works on the villa began, we consulted the Split conservation office to preserve as much as possible of the existing Dalmatian architectural tradition and its original charm, but at the same time to meet the highest modern living standards. I hope the villa will exceed your expectations!
Most importantly, I will be there to welcome you and help you discover the best of our island. I live full time in Mirca and will be happy to recommend my favorite restaurants and local food, things to see in the area and experiences you should not miss. I hope to share with you my love for this country and make your vacation here the most memorable.
I look forward to meeting you in Mirca!
Yours sincerely, Sanja Sinovcic
