We loved this place! Anuska and her husband had just renovated it; all the appliances were new and the furnishings were stylishly colorful. The “nature pool” is a beautiful slice of eden right outside the back door. The village is very quiet; we saw hardly anyone the whole time but the restaurant run by the local farmer should not be missed--homemade everything, including the pasta, the olive oil, and the wine (a little young). Anuska was very helpful with getting to know the area and directing us to the highlights of Istria; she was always quickly responsive to our emailed questions. She even greeted us late in the evening after our day-long drive from Frankfurt with chilled white wine and snacks, including the local fish-spread specialty. The village is fairly remote and must be discovered within a network of confusing back roads. Get a good map, because Croatia was no-man’s-land on our German GPS. But once you get the lay of the land, everything seemed a short drive away, even Pula.
I wish we could go back--the memories of sipping wine by the pool in the outdoor kitchen after a day of exploring Istria are delicious!
