We carefully added layer after layer of detail to this old once barn. Inspired by local heritage and upgraded with a twist of Provense architecture, it offers the perfect yet easily accesible island getaway.
Story of a house on the top of the village
(Kod Šimnića u vrh sela = Croatian original name of the estate)
The estate where the Stone Barn is located in a peaceful part of a once-traditional farmer village of Gabonjin. Your handcrafted two story getaway lives and breathes the tradition of islanders, but we also kept the expectations of modern day travellers in mind.
Upon arrival, you will receive a package of selected tastes that will take you on a small culinary experience. Freshly picked herbs cover the famous island's goat cheese, topped with a few fresh figs from the backyard with a (mandatory) glass of champagne.
With it's setup the Barn is ideal for pretty much everyone: couples needing a break from their everyday bustle, families who need space for kids, even travelers with pets.
The open floor plan on the interior lets the house breathe, and also hints at the energy that will be felt throughout your stay. Interior design is a combination of the islands traditional architecture and heritage, combined with a fresh and open Provanse style architecture.
You'll be having your breakfast and evening cocktail on a very special stone patio. "Gumno" (threshing floor) is a circular flattened plateau surrounded by a low stone wall, and it was used for threshing the grains. It was transformed into a patio overlooking some meadows, where you're more likely than not to see a deer grazing the lawn minding its own business.
On the back of the house is a natural (but professional level) exterior grill. We'll be happy to point you to our local fisherman who will bring some fresh fish for that evening meal.
There is also a lot of space on the estate. Kids can run around (there's a stone fence surrounding it), and you can even bring your pet with you if you like.
