The hunting ground was founded in the middle of the 19th century by immigrants from the area of the island of Hvar, who chose this second among the emigration to America and going to Pelješac.
These settlers were later joined by immigrants from Nakovana. The first settler in Loviste (1878) was Ante Visković from the Hvar village of Gdinj.
Loviste is an extremely Pelješac settlement, located in the west of the peninsula Peljesac, in a beautiful bay along the Adriatic coast.
The area of Lovište in relation to the rest of Pelješac has a very mild relief. The hills do not exceed 200 altitudes and mild slopes

The most frequent is the Mediterranean flora, scrub and macchia.
