A property full of character, with lovely gardens.
We rented the house for a week, for 9 people (4 adults and 5 children). The layout of the house is unusual, but makes for a property full of character. It has plenty of spaces to socialise together, or to have solitude. The views from the main terrace are amazing, with sunsets that take your breath away. The local town is a short drive away ( a car is definitely required), but has everything you need, the pizza restaurant is great (huge pizzas). The owner, Zeljka, organised a fantastic traditional meal cooked by the neighbours, in the large wood fired oven on the terrace. It was a lovely experience. The pool was clean and well maintained, and any requests made of the owner were quickly answered. A truly restful holiday.
All in all, a wonderful stay, thank you.
Fabulous house, fabulous location, fabulous time.
This was a near-perfect family holiday.
The house is situated a little off the beaten track but is an absolute delight. The facilities are excellent and the space and isolated location mean you really do get away from it all. Don't go here if you love the nightlife, but if you want to recharge your batteries away from the rat race at a pace which allows you to enjoy every moment of every day, this is the place for you.
The house fully lived up to its billing and was everything we hoped for when we made the booking.
Our three children (12,13 and 14) were rarely out of the swimming pool and loved every moment of our ten-day break. Us grown ups could sit and relax on one of the numerous patios and soak up the sun, eating fruit off the trees in the garden, whilst they splashed away to their hearts' content.
A hire car is essential - but there is plenty to do and see within an hour's drive and it is money well spent. The people could not be more friendly, and the neighbours who look after the pool are both discreet and charming. It's worth doing a little research on local restaurants in advance. There are plenty of good places to eat out at but they did take a little finding at times.
We found time to go to the local water park (Aquae Vivae at Krapinska Toplice - a great, full day out); the neanderthal museum at Krapina (OK, but only took 90 minutes to get around); the jaw-dropping lakes and waterfalls at Plitvice (worth the two-hour drive - a remarkable place) and lovely, charming Zagreb. All this and several days just spent by the pool made for a superb break.
A truly lovely house in stunning surroundings. I would wholeheartedly recommend it.
Wonderful views of gorgeous countryside;
Terrific facilities in a modern house;
Self-contained cottage in the gardens;

Negatives (but very minor)
House could benefit from a spring clean;
An amazing vacation home!!
We have just returned from an incredible vacation in this beautiful home with our friends. The property was amazing, as was everything in the home. We were able to relax with such peaceful views and surroundings. We enjoyed the pool, the grill and outside dining area, and the well-equipped and beautifully-furnished interior of the home. The hosts were quite helpful, kind and accommodating for our group, and very family-friendly as we were there with our children. We would love to return there again someday, and would very much look forward to spending another relaxing week in this home.
A beautiful house, located on a hill looking into the valley. Garden still green eventhough we were there in December. Lovely pool house at the bottom of the garden with enough space to sleep four adults. The main house is breathtakingly beautiful, well taken care of. Massive fireplace
We are happy to hear that you spent wonderful time in our house.
If you want to come again you are more than welcome.
Best to all of you!
Hollywood style glamour for those on a budget.
We had a wonderful week in this amazing house. We flew in from Gatwick on Croatia Airways (much nicer than Easyjet) and the house is about 50 minutes easy drive from the small airport. The car hire is literally next to the front door of the airport, so very easy.
The house is large, very well built and glamorous with exceptional views west across the valley. The quality of the building was excellent, far higher than I was expecting, it did feel a bit like a luxury LA home.
The mountains north of Zagreb were a complete surprise, and we ended up having a much busier week than we anticipated.
Varizden was a wonderful day trip to the north east, our waiter on the first day recommended it as the most beautiful town in Croatia, it was totally wonderful and well worth the visit. We spend quite a few days at the superb new spa and swimming pool complex in Donja Stubica about 3km from the house. This is a far better pool and spa comlex than anything I know of in Kent and Sussex. Huge wonderful pools set in lush green parkland. The massage treatment were about 160 kuna for an hour, (under £20!). Eating out in Croatia is very very cheap. We were paying about £30 - £40 for a full meal with drinks for 5 people, that's how holiday should be!
Zagreb itself is also only about 50 minutes drive so makes a great trip to the old town and Cathedral area. We even made it to the Plitvic lakes, 2 hours drive from the house, but quite extraordinary (google it).
Overall you wont be disappointed, a wonderful, luxury house close to a capital city, and your bank account is left nursing hardly any damage. Great
Beautiful house in a wonderful environment
We had a great stay in Zagorje with 2 families. The house is very nice, with a beautiful garden and a fantastic view on the fairylike landscape.
All the comfort we needed, nice swimming pool.
The only disadvantage was that there was no airco. We had temperatures around 40 degrees, and it became quite hot in the bedrooms.
