Set in the Southern Istrian village of Rakalj above Rasa Bay, from the house everything is an easy day trip. We suggest visiting the port of Pula with its Roman amphitheatre (amongst the world's best preserved and largest) for live concerts and events, the Brioni Islands with a superb golf course, a boat trip to Venice or a scenic drive to the Opatija Riviera, a former playground of the Austro-Hungarian aristocracy. Enjoy wonderful walking and bicycling country around the medieval hilltop towns which dot the landscape. Explore Rovinj, Groznjan and Motovun with its artists colonies or Medulin for its nightclubs, tennis, go-karting and sailing.

Istria is renowned for its cuisine with an abundance of restaurants and local taverns 'konobe' serving Istrian truffles, dried local hams, sheep’s cheese, game and Adriatic fish and sea food caught daily.

The prettiest local beaches at Krnica bay are 10 minute drive away.

Nice place to stay in countryside

  • 4 of 5

Lovely traditional house in a friendly and little sleepy village. Charming furnitured rooms and a terrace with a marvelous view over the mountains. Not recommendable für rumor sensitive people, because the ceiling between ground and first floor is rather thin. Very calm village - unfortunately the only disturbing traffic noise was a farmer going onto his fields by tractor and passing the house at 5.30 am. Nearby a beautiful bay with plain rock beaches along the sides, even in August not crowded. Our children loved to jump into the clear water - and once we even weatched dolphins.

Nice place to stay in countryside

  • 4 of 5

We stayed 3 weeks in this nice traditional house in Krnica with charming old croatian furniture and liked it very much. In the beginning it was a little hot because we were not used to the temperature in summer and didn't know how to keep this house cool.(Now it has air condition) Because of thin ceilings between ground and first floor it is not recommendable for noise-sensitive people staying there together with rumor producing families....A friendly village, calm and a little sleepy, ( unfortunately the only disturbing traffic noise was heard at 5.30 am when one or two farmers with tractors went to their fields. Nearby, 10 Minutes by car, there is the beautiful coast. We found a small bay with a little port for fisher boats and a beach all over the one side of the bay - not sand but big plain rocks. Our children loved it jumping into the clear and fresh water - and one day we really watched dolphins.

We will come again this year to Crnica.

Sehr schönes, gepflegtes Haus mit liebevoller Möblierung und außergewöhnlich guter technischer Ausstattung. Sehr nette Vermieter und hilfsbereite Haushälterin. Die in wenigen Fahrminuten erreichbaren Strände sind toll: Fast kein Betrieb und glasklares Wasser. Wir hatten einen tollen Urlaub!
