Biokovo Mountain overlooking the city of Makarska and its surroundings is a scary and awesome thing. Of course, apart from a few scattered villages, there’s not much life there nowadays. But, gradually, people have started renovating old stone houses and farms and opening up to tourism and organic farming. The owner of the lo-fi family farm Sv. Petar in Strnj can brag around how his ancestors were in tourism long time ago, before anyone else. Believe it or not, in the old days when the only direct road between Dubrovnik and Split went across this mighty mountain, one of the stops on this long route was at his house, because his grandpa ran an inn.
It’s the same place where today you can sit down, taste some homemade wine, olive oil, brandy or cheese. Or just stop by and buy their very good olive tapenade. And you’ll see grandpa’s official license for the inn, dating back to 1926, proudly hung on the wall.
If you’re spending your summer in villages nearby, not just passing by, some other dishes (under peka!) can be arranged with the owner Gradimir, Grado for friends.
