But Konavle is even more specific because tradition is not only cherished but is nowadays the biggest asset of this area. Living in a place that has always been surrounded by dangerous borders taught its people to be self-sustainable. In the past they not only grew their own food and grapes, made wine and grappa, dried figs, they did a lot more. They made their own clothes too and for that purpose they produced their own high-quality wool and silk. Enthusiastic young people take the best the tradition, nature and culture have to offer and bring it all to a higher level. They embrace these values, stay with their families on their land and create amazing experiences for their visitor.

You will see a demonstration of silk thread production, costume making and embroidery from Konavle, an invaluable and typical heritage. The presentation lasts approximately 30 minutes, at the end you will taste traditional “sweet delights” and homemade liqueurs.

You will then go for visiting an old water mills complex in a beautiful wood along the Ljuta river (= angry river), totally restored on the personal initiative of a local farmer. He will tell you the life of its ancestors around a wheat mill and a wool beating system to produce felt.

Finally, you will go in the traditional stone house of a winegrower family that will present to you the history of their house and you will taste their wines, olive oil and other products.
