These homes were relinquished as the locals moved to Milna, in search of a better life, and more economic stability. The village however, is not totally abandoned. A Mr. Berti Tudor has restored his family home and opened a small family restaurant, offering traditional meals prepared with ingredients found in the surrounding area of Malo Grablje.
