The Grgičević family has inhabited The village of Vrisnik since the beginning of time. Pjero Grgicevic is one of the few people that mastered the craft of building stone houses the local traditional way. He rebuilt the old house that stood on the place where now Villa Ambroz resides, the villa being named after his father Ambroz Grgičević.
The neighbouring houses belong to the relatives and in this small community everyone reaches out to help one another. While some of our family members moved to Jelsa or elsewhere, our hearts still belong to Vrisnik, and the intertwined village of Humac. Humac is a three hundred years old settlement further east on the island, that the inhabitants of Vrisnik used as temporary homes to work in the fields. Beautiful archeological site can be explored in a Grabčeva cave nearby. We are currently renovating houses in Humac to restore this historical heritage and revive the village.
Being people of the island, we live off the land and the sea, produce fruits, vegetables and catch fish.
