It was first owned by the well-known Stajlia (Stalio) family from Hvar, which engaged in financial business . For a long time it was owned by the Marchi family, one of the oldest Italian families in Hvar. The villa, along with the Gothic house and garden was fully renovated in the period from 2007 to 2009 according to the instructions.
