Graceful Vis

Location: Vis Island, Croatia




Our country house in Marinje Zemlje



Part of us secretly desires to discover a haven.  That ideal place with all the pieces we crave to be healthy and thrive.  A place that would entice us enough to settle down and continue raising Dhyan and Arelia in peace, harmony, and beauty.  Vis Island resembles this place.  It’s special, and we are enamored.  We consider what it would mean to live here.







As the ferry from Split steered in to the quaint little bay we both looked at each other, struck by the charming turquoise coastline and sporadic villas.  Vis exudes history and feels raw, like you’ve landed in another time.  Spirit is strong here.  Time is on your side.  Small, quiet, remote, safe, clean, happy, and fresh, there’s a sparkly sensation, as if you’ve happened upon a precious jewel.  Pure and welcoming, Vis easily seeps in, drawing you out.





After living here for six weeks, Vis has our hearts.  I’m not sure if we found this island, or if it found us, but it spurred us to find ourselves.  Vis whispers calmly to your soul, offering tender embrace.  The mesmerizing sapphire water, sweet smelling countryside, unforeseen friendliness, and utter stillness all captivate us.






We love you Vis.

With gratitude,

The Hughes-Batoosingh’s
