Home, being at home, dwelling, these are concepts that have a special meaning for someone from the very moment he becomes aware of himself. It is perhaps for this reason that every topic related to dwelling, is of such particular sensitivity, even when it is only a matter of temporary residence, as in the case of a second home.


The island of Pag is one of those distinctive ambiences along the eastern coast of the Adriatic; it is characterised by the duality that is instinct in both the image of the landscape and in the division into two administrative sections.
