Let's go to the countryside!
Visiting the family households located in the Vis interior is an ideal way of meeting the whole island. Households are scattered throughout the fertile fields and the still partly settled villages. These family households are actually one of Vis' gastronomic specialties; you will have the chance of trying meat or fish traditionally prepared under the baking lid there or a real barbecue - fired with brushwood or grape wood. A homemade brandy or wine as well as numerous old specialties such as artichokes with broad beans, goulash made of edible snails or grilled sardines are just some of the reasons to investigate the gastronomic offer on the island more carefully.
Having lunch in the courtyard of an old stone house or under a hundred year old mulberry tree as well as tasting wines in renovated taverns are unavoidable experiences when visiting family households. However, the most important thing is whether you find a common language with your host. That is how most of the regular visitors of Vis find their favourite family household where a rural atmosphere, great food, good company and friendship with a host have bonded in an ideal way.
You should generally anticipate your arrival as these households are of reduced capacities and you will usually be served by members of the family.
