****the house has a centralised HEATING SYSTEM
The property is tucked away in nature and a great place to relax, but only a few minutes drive to downtown. The house is built on two levels and the apartments measure 120 sqm (upper floor) and 60 sqm (ground floor) with very spacious rooms. The interior has been completely renovated in a discreet yet stylish way, and is very cosy and intimate. The surrounding garden is huge and, if you have kids, they can safely play on the grounds.
You will have the entire house and surrounding grounds to feel at home.

We are a married couple and are currently based in New Orleans, USA. Dinko is a Pula, Croatia native and lived in Italy for over 30 years. Pam is a native of New Orleans, USA. We met while we were both travelling in Laos.
We are both passionate about people, food, music, sports, photography and travel and love to share this with others. Some of our favorite travel destinations are India, Nepal, Southeast Asia, Italy, and Greece.
Casa Norma was named after Dinko's mom who was a talented artist. You will see some of her lovely work around the house and feel the serene energy that characterised her.
Because we are currently away from Pula, our good friend Sonja will host you and make you feel at home!
For us it is more than just about spaces, it is about PEOPLE.
Looking forward to having you as our guests!
