If you are looking for an authentic Croatian mountain village experience this is definitely a place to consider. We stayed here for 3 nights this summer on our travel through Europe. We have spent a lot of time in northern Italy mountain biking, but wanted to try out Croatia for the first time, as we had heard many good things about this area. We were looking for a mix of an authentic small village experience with good MTB and road biking possibilities, as we are very active. We came across this brand new restored villa and went for it. The villa had one large apartment in the second floor, and two smaller apartments in the lower floor. Each apartment had a small garden with sitting area. The villa was beautifully restored and located in the center of a small Croatian village. The atmosphere was nice and quite with very friendly neighbors. The owners, Nora and Al, where there doing final landscaping and restoring a beautiful watchtower to the building. Al and Nora are themselves enthusiastic mountain bikers and offered to be guides the two days we went biking. The village is located in a park and had amazing trails basically starting right outside the door. We had two great rides! Although we only rode our mountain bikes the two days we road, this area is perfect for road biking as well, with nice winding roads with little traffic. We dinned out two evenings and tried two different places based on our hosts recommendations, both places with excellent food and wine. One was a restaurant located in the medieval part of Buzet, also known as the city of truffles. The other was a beautifully located kanoba, a family style restaurant with amazing food and wine and an amazing view. If we ever return to this area we would definitely consider this place again. I would love to go back for more biking. Thanks to Nora and Al for their hospitality, guided trips and other recommendations...we had a great time!
