About Vid Horvat

I'm a sport journalist from Zagreb, I enjoy travelling, cooking and going to rock concerts. You could say I'm an outdoor type of person because I love spending my free time in the nature. I've been to many great places but my biggest wish is to visit New Zealand.

Vid Horvat purchased this cottage in 1989

Why Vid Horvat chose Općina Stubičke Toplice

In the area of ​​Zagorje there is more than 50 castles and fortresses. Particularly attractive are the castles of the Baroque period. Even then that was the landscape of the nobility and it was attractive for holidays and leisure.

Idyllic green area that is interwoven with rivers and streams in the forests and vineyards are just breathtaking and offers in every season so much desired peace and quiet.

In spring and summer you can hike, ride a bike, swim in the spa and visit castles and museums. Since the ski area Medvednica (Sljeme) is located only 30 minutes from the house, it is possible to ski in winter associated with bathing in the hot spa! In winter, the snow-covered landscape with its vineyards and wine routes are particularly romantic.

What makes this cottage unique

Our wooden house is placed in Donja Stubica and lies just above Spa and wellness 'Jezerčica'. The house is very cosy, decorated with lots of love, and we are very poud of our beautiful garden.

While decorating the house we put special emphasis on the details of Croatian history and tradition and that’s why the house has already won several awards in regional competitions for eco house and garden.

Addition to the serve room, bathroom and fully equipped kitchen, you can use the barbecue on the terrace and to the ground peculiar cooking utensils in nature.

Also, we provided pool and sauna discounts for our guests in the local Spa & wellness centre. Zagorje is rich for thermal springs with medicinal waters and therefore has a long tradition of spa (even the Romans bathed here).

''Eco House Horvat is located in a very nice place on a hill in a beautiful rural area close to Zagreb, its spectacular view to the local village and quite surroundings makes it perfect for resting, chilling out or simply enjoying the garden area. You immediately feel like home since the very beginning with the friendly welcome of the house owners. I enjoyed very much the evenings with my family and specially the barbecue we organized in the very well equipped bbq place.''

Amazing house with great views

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house and great location, quiet but shops and restaurants are within easy reach. Amazing views and fabulous BBQ area. Vid, Marijo and Luca were great hosts with lots of recommendations of things to do and see in the area. We spent two weeks there with our two children and had a fantastic time. Donja Stubica and the surrounding area is very beautiful with lots of opportunities for walking, swimming and canoeing.

Croatian Zagorje is a historical geographical area in Croatia north of the capital city Zagreb (half hour drive) and Nature park Medvednica. Taking into account the more cultural factors, such as speech and other effects, capital city of Zagreb could even be classified as a capital of Croatian Zagorje. Capital cities in Croatian Zagorje are Varazdin and Krapina. Krapina is also Kajkavian Culture Center.

Varazdin is famous for its concerts of classical music – Baroque Evenings www.vbv.hr and his costume street event – Spancirfest www.spancirfest.com. In the area of ​​Zagorje there is more than 50 castles and fortresses. Particularly attractive are the castles of the Baroque period. Even then that was the landscape of the nobility and it was attractive for holidays and leisure, and that’s why there are so many castles in such a small space.

Zagorje is rich for thermal springs with medicinal waters and therefore has a long tradition of spa (even the Romans bathed here). As an example Varazdinske spa, Tuheljske spa, Stubica spa…

It’s hard to choose one season in which the beauty of Croatian Zagorje the most prominent.

Idyllic green area that is interwoven with rivers and streams in the forests and vineyards are just breathtaking and offers in every season so much desired peace and quiet.

In spring and summer you can hike, ride a bike, swim in the spa and visit castles and museums. Since the ski area Medvednica (Sljeme) is located only 20 minutes from the house, it is possible to ski in winter associated with bathing in the hot spa! In winter, the snow-covered landscape with its vineyards and wine routes are particularly romantic.

There are a lots of concerts and events that are related to culture and history of the region, for example, historical games and peasant uprising (an uprising against the higher nobility, Matija Gubec, 1573.).

We must not forget the gastronomy! Regional local traditional specialties and wines are famous and we have to recommend it to you!

Visit to a traditional restaurant “cottages” and related wine tasting and enjoying the authentic traditional dishes is an experience for itself.
