Lastovo

The island Lastovo has already been mentioned in the 4th century BC as Ladesta and Ladeston. The Greek tribe called it Ladestanos. The Romans gave the island the solemn latin name of Augusta Insula meaning the island of Emperors. During the middle ages the name would be transcribed as Augusta, Lagusta or Lagosta. In the Mid-10th century it has a slavic name Lastobon which proves the early existance of Croats. Rich history of the island is marked by over 30 churches and chapels from ancient times.

Green island in the midst of the blue adriatic open sea has escaped by a miracle the blessings of civilization. Lastovo is maybe the last piece of the former mediterranean Homer came and lord Byron tool his inspirations from. Lastovo means a vacation in harmony with untouched nature, in the ambience of traditional arhitecture, enjoying healthy and fresh island food from the fields and the crystal-clear sea, a vacation with wine already drunk by the Roman emperors.

Lastovo has all the characteristic features of the Mediterranean climate, such as mild and humid winters and warm, draughtly and long summers. The Lastovo arcipelago consist of 46 island and cliffs in the crystal-clear sea rich with fish and lobsters. Lastovo is one of the most wooded island but also has olive groves, vineyards and orchards and fields with vegetables grown in harmony with nature, favouring development of eco-gastronomy…
