Matulini – The Little House
Set in a peaceful, rural location, the Little House is a well-equipped, one-bedroom cottage, designed specifically as a get-away for couples. Nestling at the bottom of half an acre of landscaped grounds and built in a rustic style, it has its own private garden and terrace, complete with barbeque and teak/cane garden furniture.
Inside there is a large bedroom with a king-size bed, open-plan living room, fully-equipped kitchen and bathroom. The swimming pool is shared only with the owners (an English couple) and there is covered parking in a secure walled courtyard at front of owner’s property.
The Little House is situated on the edge of the village and surrounded by ancient woodland. Located close to the new Trieste-Pula main road, the cottage is ideally placed for sightseeing across the whole of Istria.
Porec, with its many restaurants and large supermarkets is only 10 minutes drive away. There are also other restaurants and supermarkets closer by. The nearest being in either Baderna – 3 km away, or Zbandaj – 4 km away.
There’s a lot to see and do in Istria : picturesque seaside towns, unspoilt medieval hill-top villages, lovely scenery and a beach only a 10-minute drive away. But many of our guests are seduced by the total peace and quiet of the garden: exploring gets pushed out to tomorrow, as snoozing by the pool seems a much better option for today.
The Little House has an official tourist classification for legal renting in Croatia.
It is cleaned once a week. Bed linen, bath, T-towels and pool towels are provided and changed weekly.
General supplies like washing-up liquid, clingfilm and kitchen towel are provided, along with a few essentials to get you started – wine, tea, coffee, milk and biscuits etc.
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 gas hob, and oven (electric), dishwasher, fridge with small freezer compartment, toaster and kettle.
The Little House has its own private garden and terrace. Sit, soak up the peace and quiet, and maybe see a deer as it ventures out from the woods. The garden’s totally secluded – there isn’t another house in sight, just an ancient vineyard with woodlands beyond.
Enjoy the luxury of a large pool – all to yourself! The pool’s 12 x 5m and you only share it with us (the owners) and we make sure you get priority. By the pool you also have your own shaded terrace area with lounger chairs.
There is secure covered parking in the owner’s walled front courtyard.
