Brnobici – A slice of real Istria
Over 100 years old, this traditional, Istrian stone house nestles on the slopes of historic Kaštelir. It has panoramic views of the coast below, especially from the 1st floor balcony. Beautifully restored, with old wood beams, stone stairs and polished wood floors, the house is built on three floors. On the ground floor there is a kitchen-diner, a double bedroom and a bathroom with shower. On the 1st floor there is a large living room with stone fireplace and balcony. On the top floor there are 2 double bedrooms and a bathroom with bath. Outside there is a small garden with a 6x3m2 pool, a covered dining area with a stone table and a sun terrace with sea views. Parking is private, at the start of the property and screened from the garden by wrought iron gates.
The panoramic view from the terrace goes right across the horizon to the coast. Look left and you can see Rovinj. Look right and its Porec. This is just part of it.
There are several restaurants close by – the closest only a minute’s walk away. Shops including a mini-supermarket with a butcher, and post office are within easy walking distance. Larger supermarkets and a selection of shops are in Porec, 10 minutes drive away.
The coast and historic Porec are only 10 minutes drive away. As well as the seaside attractions, the peninsula is full of historic towns, villages and sites. In fact there is enough to see and do in Istria to keep you busy for weeks.
Our house has an official tourist classification for legal renting in Croatia.
With its stone staircase, low windows and unfenced swimming pool, this property is unsuitable for toddlers and small children who cannot swim. We therefore do not accept children under 5; babies who cannot walk are accepted – sorry its a safety issue!
The house is cleaned once a week. Bed linen, bath and T-towels are provided and changed weekly.
To help you get the most from your holiday, I’ve put together a comprehansive information pack. Maps and guide books are also available.
Kitchen - We love cooking and I know how frustrating it can be in a rental property to find you have ‘two odd saucepans and a blunt knife’! I’ve tried to provide everything we would want and hopefully our wishes/needs will match yours. On the appliances side, there’s a 4-ring electric ceramic hob, and oven, dishwasher, fridge/freezer, toaster, kettle, microwave.
Nestling under the eaves, the master bedroom has a large double bed (160 cm x 200 cm) and the second bedroom has twin beds. Both upstairs bedrooms have air conditioning. The third, small bedroom, is on the ground floor.
Outside there is a pergola-covered dining area with a stone table and six chairs.
Parking for one car is at the front of the property with the car screened from the garden by a metal gate. In the shed you’ll find the washing machine.
We think Brnobici is wonderful - we would, we’re its owners :) Don’t just take our word for it, see what previous guests have thought of it. Here’s some of the feedback we’ve had through our guest book.
