Other things to note

For those without car, also keep in mind that you can take the catamaran from the mainland directly to Jelsa what brings you closer to Pitve and makes your arrival to the final destination somewhat shorter. Though, we definitely recommend having a car if you plan to stay in Pitve since the place lacks typical town activities and you’d probably need to move around a bit. The village however, is not totally abandoned. There is a nice family restaurant Dvor Dubokovic, offering traditional meals prepared with ingredients found in the surrounding area of island Hvar.
The village of Pitve, one of the oldest settlements on the island, is located 168m above sea level and it consists of two parts – Gornje Pitve (Old or Upper Pitve) and Donje Pitve (New or Lower Pitve). Evident from their names they were settled in different times. The older part goes back to Illyrian times, while the newer part dates back to late 15th and early 16th century.
Town of Jelsa originally emerged as a port of Pitve what shows the importance of this village in its early days. Between upper and lower Pitve there were few structures that were built for joint use – school, parish church of St. Jacob, old and new cemetery, former library/reading room and community hall. However, throughout the years many of those places emptied out because people went elsewhere in search of a better life.
Same as in any other small place on the island, church plays a significant role in the life of people from Pitve. Patron saint is St. Jacob. Possibly the most important day in the year in Pitve and neighboring villages is Maundy Thursday. Devotional procession takes place in the night between Maundy Thursday and Good Friday. Procession starts from six different places on the island (Pitve, Vrisnik, Svirče, Vrbanj, (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN)ska and Jelsa) and it is called "Za križen" (Following the Cross).
Sveti Nikola(Saint Nicholas) is the the highest peak of the island of Hvar and is the third highest island mountain in Croatia. At the top there are picturesque chapel of St. Nicholas from the 15th century and a sizable stone cross. Baseline relief around the island make it a mountain ridge along the south side of the island with steep rocky slopes. The highest peaks of the island is situated above the southern shore of Zavala and Sveta Nedjelja (St. Sunday).

How gorgeous! Zlatko's house is such a gem. A nicely arranged, quiet stone house, with a precious terrace. We enjoyed the location as it is near by the main cities and very close to the wonderful beaches of Soline. Zlatko and Lidjia were very welcoming, presnet host when needed, yet discrete. Thank you !!

Zlatko is a really good host. Excellent communication and very accommodating. He even picked me up from the bus station and showed me around the area. The house is in a small quaint village Pitve with beautiful serene surroundings. Perfect place to relax and also a short cycle away from Jelsa.

La casa è situata in un paesino tutto in pietra molto bello e tranquillo (così come la casa). È situato al centro dell'isola permettendo di raggiungere facilmente tutte le località. Abbiamo trovato la casa molto pulita e completa di ogni necessità. Zlatko e sua figlia sono stati molto gentili e disponobili.

Zlatko fue muy amable con nosotros. Nos enseñó un mapa de la zona con todas las cosas que podíamos visitar de la isla de Hvar y nos dio varios consejos. Todo lo que se puede esperar del anfitrión. Perfecto.
