How it came about

Love at first sight. Everyone must seek their own paradise. Helena Ramsbacher found her very own on the island of Brač. When she came to Sutivan for the first time, she immediately fell in love with this place. 

She bought an old, dilapidated stone house in an overgrown garden and lovingly renovated it as a personal place of longing, vacation, and retreat.

A paradise


At first, family and friends came to visit, then their friends and acquaintances who heard of this magical fishing village among olive and lemon trees. When the opportunity arose, Ramsbacher bought more old mansions in Sutivan and made them even more beautiful than they once were. Her private garden of Eden became the Heritage Hotel Lemongarden 5 years ago. 

The house that started it all is still Helena Ramsbacher's private paradise. If you come to Brač in summer, chances are, she will be there too.
