About the property

2 bedroom holiday home with extensive grounds, outdoor pool and sauna

Tired, stressed, need to get away and recharge the batteries? You've come to the right place. There's something magical in the air, you can't help but relax when you are here.

Welcome to your own space and tranquility. The apartment is set in the middle of over 2 acres (approx 1 hectare) of its own grounds. You are surrounded by nature - flowers, trees, vineyard, and woodland, however you are not remote - just 200m down the hill into the centre of the small town of Štrigova where you can find shops, bars, restaurants, ATM, tourist office, chemist, post office.

Your home from home features an outdoor swimming pool in the summer months. This is perfect for relaxing in and enjoying the beautiful view and also includes a countercurrent jet for guests who want to be a little more active.

The outdoor BBQ area is the ideal place to enjoy a glass of chilled local wine on a summer evening. When did you last pick a ripe peach from a tree outside your door? Or eat home grown vegetables? At Church View, if it's ripe in the garden you are welcome to help yourself. For the more adventurous why not join us in September when we harvest the grapes and make wine?

In the cooler months enjoy a glass of mulled wine in front of one of the two wood-burning stoves or relax in the wood-fired outdoor sauna.

Children or all ages are very welcome and there is a selection of toys and books available for them to enjoy. There is also a DVD player with a selection of DVDs (we can tailor the selection to your taste) and a Wii console and games.

Pets are welcome too and there is a large fenced enclosure complete with kennel where dogs can safely be left.

If you don't want to get away from the real world completely you can make use of the free Wifi to keep in touch with home.

About Sally Daniels

We are Sally and Martin Daniels. We moved to Croatia from the UK with our two children and our dog Jasper in 2010 and are now enjoying the 'good life', growing our own veggies, collecting eggs from our free range chickens, raising our own meat and producing our own wine.

Why Sally Daniels chose Slovenia

Having settled into our new life in Croatia we now want to share the experience! When we saw this property we knew it would be a perfect holiday home. Set in its own grounds, but not remote, with fabulous views.

Walking the gently rolling hills of Upper Međimurje is a perfect way to experience the beauty of this area. Even better when combined with stops to enjoy the award winning local wines and the delicious local food.

For cyclists there are 400km of signposted routes within Međimurje County, supported by the 'Cyclist Welcome' Network.

Year round swimming is possible at the indoor pool in Čakovec and the indoor and summer pools at the Sveti Martin Thermal Spa.

If you are feeling more adventurous why not try canoeing or rafting on the Drava or Mura rivers?

Fishing is a popular local pastime, Međimurje hosted the 2014 Coarse Angling World Championship.

A nine hole golf course is located 5km from Church View.

Looking for an indoor activity? Then head to the Lumini Centre in Varaždin for ten-pin bowling, pool, table football, a multiplex cinema and much more.


If you plan to visit in the spring then join us for 'Urbanovo'. A festival of fine wines, good food and local traditions.

A visit to the beautiful Baroque town of Varaždin is a must. The New York Times noted that 'Croatia’s architectural and musical gem lies inland' when it included Varaždin in its list of 52 places to go in 2014. Its castle, cobbled streets and cafe culture are a delight at any time of year. Visit during December for the Advent celebrations, sample the Baroque nights in October, or experience Varaždin at its most vibrant during the ten day 'Špancirfest' at the end of August.

Čakovec 'Stari Grad', the seat of the once powerful Žrinski family, is the largest castle in Međimurje and houses the county museum. If you are visiting at the beginning of August make sure the 'Porcijunkulovo' festival is on your to do list.

The annual Renaissance Festival in Koprivnica takes you back in time for a great day out.

Trakošćan Castle is the most spectacular in the region. Set on a hill top, above a lake and among acres of woodland, it is straight out of a fairytale.

Sveti Martin na Muri is the most northerly point of Croatia. Here you can enjoy a walk (or a coffee) by the fast flowing Mura river while visiting the 'Mill on the Mura' and learning a little about local rural traditions. A tradition with a more modern face is the annual 'Krampuslauf' in December - not for those with a weak disposition.

Throughout the year saints' days and the wine producing calendar provide many excuses for village festivals and celebrations in the area. See Visit Međimurje or contact us for more details.


Need a break from all that activity and culture? Then kick back and relax with a glass of wine or a delicious meal at one of the many local bars, restaurants or vineyards.

Why not visit the Hazić wine house and sample their award winning white wines?

Maybe treat yourself at the newly renovated wellness centre at Terme Sveti Martin?

Or just fire up the BBQ, pour the wine and enjoy the view......

Ready for More?

After a spot of relaxation, following all the activity and culture in northern Croatia, maybe it is time to head a little further afield? All the following are fantastic day trips.

The UNESCO protected Plitvice Lakes National Park is arguably the most spectacular destination in Croatia and is not to be missed.

Zagreb 'has culture, arts, music, architecture, gastronomy and all the other things that make a quality capital city' - Lonely Planet Guides.

Maribor in Slovenia is a beautiful riverside city overlooked by Pohorje mountain where you can hike in summer, ski in winter or enjoy the adrenalin rush of the mountain bike park.

Graz in Austria is another UNESCO protected gem within easy reach.

Pop over the border into Hungary and chill out in the spa town of Héviz on Lake Balaton. For a spa with a bit more excitement involved visit Terme 3000, just over the border in Slovenia. Only the brave will ride the Aqualoop, the world's first water slide with a 360-degree loop!

Peaceful hideaway

  • 5 of 5

We were warmly welcomed by the owner who presented her beautiful cottage set amongst vineyards above a classic Croatian Village. The house has everything a traveller or holiday maker needs to relax and enjoy such an outstanding location. The cottage is set on a hill overlooking the quiet village. My wife and I enjoyed the wine provided from the vineyard in front of the pot belly stove and relaxed. We walked down to the town and had a beautiful meal for a very competitive price.

We thoroughly recommend this house to any traveller who wants a unique and special place to relax.

Alles in Allem; einfach Gut!

  • 4 of 5

Wenn man sich mit wenig Ansprüche zurück ziehen, und Landschaft genießen möchte, ist das genau richtig. Die Besitzerin verdient wegen Ihrer Freundlichkeit 5 Sterne. Das Haus, Sauna und der Pool erreichen 3 bis max 4 Sterne. Im Dorf gibt es nicht viel Möglichkeiten aber für einen zurückgezogenen Kurzurlaub Super.
