Overview

About the property

Newly-built, reconstructed authentic house, with 1615 square feet of comfort. The whole estate has 130 000 square feet. The house is situated on isolated slopes of Licka Plješivica Mountain, 800 meters above sea level and near the Plitvice Lakes (25 minutes by car) that are one of the 7 national parks in Croatia, which UNESCO has declared as the World's natural inheritance. A private macadam tree alley leads to the house.

A large comfortable living room with an eating room and a kitchen on the first floor (cutting-edge equipment); spacious “wine living room” in the basement (wine selection from the famous wine shop Bornstein from Zagreb), two bedrooms in the attic (with a brilliant view of a picturesque fields and surrounding hills), two elegant bathrooms with toilets (one has a bathtub and the other has a shower), separate larder (always supplied with all the necessary utensils), one more separate pantry, a big terrace and well-groomed area around the house with outside solar shower and barbecue. Above all, a large, spacious private estate (with more than enough room for relaxation that we all need), makes the Bornstein house unique and different, and not only in that part of Croatia. Very peaceful and charming.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Villa Bornstein is as beautiful as the photos depict! The house is elegantly appointed, with every comfort you can possibly need (comfy beds, washer, wifi, well-supplied kitchen, great music collection). The rural setting of the villa is just sublime. We made it a daily ritual to sit on the patio with a bottle of wine (if you don't have your own, there is a fine wine cellar at the house from which you may purchase a bottle) to watch the sun set and hear the birds sing. Here, in the peaceful countryside, we slept better than we have in years! What you can't see in the photos is the extraordinary hospitality of your hosts. We were welcomed by a feast attractively laid out on the table- freshly-made strukli, newly-picked wild strawberries, elderberry juice, and grappa. We were surprised, delighted, and happy to have the night off from cooking after a long day of travel. With Villa Bornstein as our home base, we explored Plitvice Lakes National Park, the Nikola Tesla Museum, and took a day trip to Bosnia and Herzegovina to see castles and Una National Park. Thanks to the Borosic family for a lovely and a memorable stay in Croatia! They were responsive to our many questions, and made us feel very comfortable and welcome in this gorgeous house.

"Fantastic house to rest ...

  • 5 of 5

"Fantastic house to rest in osmose with the surrounding nature. It"s not far from lake plivitce which is a marvellous place to go. As well there is plenty of small treks you can do around. Korenica is not far from the house (5 minutes by car) and you can find there every thing as well as very good "rotisserie" to have lunch or dinner for a very good price.

On top Mr and Mrs Borosic are very kind let some stuff inorder to be able to do the first night and morning. the welcoming with local cake has been very appreciated.

Our only regret is to have left after one week.... :)"

Splendide grange rénovée avec brio

  • 5 of 5

Dina et son mari ont merveilleusement bien rénové cette ancienne grange de caractère dans laquelle il fait bon vivre quelques jours.

Le style d'aménagement, le calme extérieur et l'ambiance feutrée de l'intérieur nous invite à vivre le moment présent pendant tout le séjour. Tout est fait pour que vous vous sentiez comme chez vous.

Prachtig huis om in alle rust van te genieten

  • 5 of 5

Wij werden zeer gastvrij ontvangen. De tafel was gedekt en er stond een heerlijke pie op ons te wachten. het huis is heel sfeervol en van alle gemakken voorzien. Zeer compleet. De eigenaar had zelfs wat boodschappen voor ons gedaan! Wat een geweldige plek!
