Mola Rudina is a eco-ethno village of twenty houses, the first one being built in 1663 by the family of Pietro Scoglian,a settler from Gdinj, a village in the eastern part of Hvar. The entire population of the village share the same family name -Šoljan and have been dealing with agriculture and fishing. The village of Rudine is one of the last well-kept secrets on the island of Hvar. It is located 2 km north of Stari Grad Town, the major port of the islan, and is divided into Rudina Vela and Rudina Mola. Today Rudine count approximately 19 permanent residents. This number rises during the summer but never to the point of overcrowding the area. That way Rudine manages to preserve its discrete rural charm.
In the center of Mola Rudina at the clearing that makes the rudimentary square,the center of the village ,still stand an olive mill,a grave mill ,and a lamp on stone column ,witnessing the past
times. This charming small Mediterranean stone house offers its guests a unique relaxation. The closest beach is a beautifull bay Lisna 650 m from the cottage.
The contemporary interior of Cottage Thrasos covers the total area of 57 m2, with 38 m2reserved for the ground floor, 19 m2 for the mezzanine, and 10 m2 for the terrace.
After you leave your car at the private parking area around 20 meters away and reach the cottage – on the right side you will see your green terrace – in front of you there will be a couple of stairs which will lead you to your little empire; an empire in which wood and stone make love at every turn. The result is a warm welcome of a well-designed space which is playful enough to encourage you to start playing as well.
The front door leads you to an elevated area of the dining room that continues directly to the kitchen, and with the help of approximately ten iron-wooden stairs located on the right, you can climb to the bedroom, i.e. the gallery. The gallery is covered by a sloping wooden roof – and the presence of exposed wood in the interior is something we always support. The bedroom has a double bed the size of 160 x 200.
The gallery also has one extra toilet on a well-thought-out location – because (we assume) no one wish to climb up and down the stairs during the night! Since it is daytime now - we are going back to the dining room, and then, using two stairs on the left (by the front door), we will reach the lowest level of the house i.e. the central space of Thrasos, the living room.
Too bad it is not winter, the fireplace seems to be calling you to light a fire. The living room is spacious and comfortable, and it also has all the technology you need to have some fun if your decision is to spend your vacation inside the house. Furthermore, there is another door here that hides the main bathroom with a shower.
When renovating Thrasos, the owner did not spare on the windows, which is important when it comes to spaces with a lot of wood in the interior – you will have more than enough light, if that is what you wish. If you open the window next to the front door, you will see your lovely, small stone terrace dressed in green. Another outdoor dining table is located at the terrace.
Fully-equipped kitchen, cable LED TV, wifi, air-con...
The eco-ethno village Mola Rudina is located on small hill 2km north from town of Stari Grad. In 384 BC, the town Stari Grad was formally founded by ancient Greeks from the island of Paros in the Aegean Sea. They gave the name Faros (ΦAPOΣ) to their new settlement, an independent state permitted to mint its own money. The nearby plain was marked out with roads at right angles, and divided into fields of standard size. The Stari Grad Plain today represents one of the best-preserved examples of ancient Greek agriculture throughout the Mediterranean. In 2008, the Stari Grad Plain became a UNESCO protected world heritage site.There's a website of the town Stari Grad , where you can find plenty of information about the history, restaurants, beaches, events etc.
