Timeless Palmižana; A Meneghello Guest Impression from 1936

By paul 21 Mar 2014, 08:12 AM What's On This Month?

The magic of Meneghello on Palmižana has been unchanged for decades. The view in 1936. 

I am really looking forward to being a tourist on Hvar next week as part of the international gastro press trip organised by Gastronaut. Sleeping at Hotel Riva, speedboats to wine tasting with Zlatan, dinner at Gariful - it all sounds fun. 

But the thing I am most looking forward to is the press reaction to their scheduled visit to Meneghello on Palmižana, one of the true jewels of Dalmatia. 

For more than a century.

Sailing. Swimming. Fishing. Incredible Sunsets. Great Food.

Those were the highlights in 1936 in this wonderful drawing left by a happy German guest.

Not a lot has changed since then, except perhaps the addition of art, culture, an arboretum and some rather fabulous peacocks. 

Not to be missed on your next visit to Hvar.
