Croatia has some fantastic wines and there are several excellent vineyards in the neighborhood. You can discover many small villages inland close to Opatija well worth a visit, such as Kastav. Do you wish to enjoy a day on the sea there are plenty of opportunities to rent a boat. With a skipper or without (if you have a boat license). Make a day trip to Venice! The ferry departs from Porec or Pula (about 1 hour drive) and takes about 3 hours. If you travel during the winter the closest skiing area is outside Rijeka only 40 minutes away.

You really need a car to get around. A taxi from the house to Opatija cost about € 10 and to Rijeka about € 18.

Croatia has pretty low prices compared to rest of Europe. Car is essential. Make sure to book a car well in advance, especially during the high season. Taxi is inexpensive. From Rijeka airport it is about 35 minutes drive. From Pula airport about 1 hour. From Trieste airport about 1.5 hours. From Zagreb airport about 1.5-2 hours. From Venice Airport about 2-2.5 hours drive. The motorways in Croatia are very good.

Ett hus och en plats man inte vill lämns

  • 5 of 5

Huset är smakfullt och har allt man behöver och lite till. Utsikten är magisk och det är rofyllt att sitta i loungen och bara njuta av vyn och fåglarna.

Att ha en egen pool är skönt att ha då man helst inte vill lämna det fina huset.

Vi hade en spatjej som kom till huset och gjorde manikyr, pedikyr och massage. Lyxigt och prisvärt.

Att gå till Opatija tar ca 30 minutet och är vackert och svettigt. Bil går mkt fortare.

Massor med bra resturanger, bad, beach clubs och utflykter.

Rekomenderar Villa Bianca och Opatija.

Beautiful location - relaxing in the mountains (not far from the ocean)

  • 5 of 5

Surrounded by mountains with a stunning view over the Kvarner bay and located only about 15 minutes (by car) from the beautiful city center of Opatija. The house is new, modern and beautiful with all necessary equipments. Comfortable beds and a big bathroom (ours was "en-suite") with a wonderful rain shower. Love the open kitchen/living room with fantastic views! And for warmer days there are plenty of of outside terrace space and a fantastic pool area. You also have so many beautiful places to visit nearby as Rijeka, Island Kirk, Rovinj, Pula and Porec etc. All within 30 minutes to an hours reach (by car)!

Mycket bra område i kroatien att semestra på med massa möjligheter, allt från strandhäng till vingårdar och tryffelprovning! Opatija är dessutom en mycket trevlig liten stad med flertalet utsökta restauranger.

Villan håller högsta klass och hade allt vi kunde önska oss. Modernt och cleant boende med fantastisk utsikt över kvarner bukten och mot kvällstid se hela Rijeka lysa upp, samtidigt som man kan avnjuta en hemmagrillad middag på terassen! Stora utrymmen och fräsch inredning gör hela upplevelsen väldigt lyxig.

Rekommenderas starkt!

Underbart ställe som varmt rekommenderas!

  • 5 of 5

Helt fantastiskt hus i ett underbart läge med utsikt över Medelhavet. Mycket smakfullt inrett och fin pool med solsängar och jättegrill. Perfekt ställe att hänga på. Ägarna har lagt stor möda på snygg modern och funktionell inredning. Här finns allt man kan önska sig och lite till! Stort plus för många och rymliga sovrum, alla med egna väl tilltagna och lyxiga badrum. Har redan bokat in nästa vistelse här och rekommenderar stället varmt!
