Baroness Anna Plochl did not only win over the heart of Archduke Johann, but also the hearts of all the Styrians. After the death of her husband Johann, Anna Plochl, later the Countess of Meran, threw herself into charity work and founded the Children's Hospital Anna in Graz, Austria. She died in 1885, at the age of 81. Her statue still stands in the "Staireche Ehrengalerie" in Graz.

After her death in 1908, the association continued her work and built a climatic health resort for children next to the Savudrija lighthouse. The favourable climatic conditions were primarily relevant for children suffering from respiratory diseases. The children spent the most beautiful time of their youth in a beautiful, peaceful and amazing environment.

After World War I, ownership of the resort passed into the hands of the Codiglia family from Bašanija, and it was sold in 1924 to the municipality of Graz. All this time, as well as after the end of World War II, the building retained its original purpose. In 1998, the house was renovated and converted into an apartment hotel Villa Valdepian.
