In our cozy typical Istrian house we offer accommodation in apartment for 3-4 persons. You will experience relax, peace, intact nature and beautiful beaches near by. In a 20 minutes drive you can visit the largest city in Istria, Pula ;)

The space

Our house and apartment is in a great little place in Istria. When you wake up, you have 30 steps to excellent coffee at our local restaurant KUM (Godfather). But before that, check back to the bakery, which is located next to the entrance to the apartment and buy fresh baking.

After you drink a cup of coffee go across the square in a small store and buy something fresh for breakfast.

And then begins a wonderful day of vacation ... go to two-five kilometers distant - beach, fishing, cycling, horseback riding, wine tasting, cheese, visiting three thousand year old city (Pula) and the mandatory tour of the amphithatre.

When you want to change, you can go on a one-day trip to Venice, Rovinj, Istria tour, Plitvice Lakes ...

During the holiday with us you breathe fresh air, swim in crystal clear water, eat healthy food and enjoy nature and quiet.

We look forward to seeing you :)

Ljiljana and Gino are lovely hosts who made us feel especially welcome and always seemed to be on hand to answer questions and provide tips of places to visit etc. The preferred language for discourse is French / Italian or German. Mirroring the comments of others the apartment is clean and well equipped - the washing machine was extremely useful as teenagers arrived for a weeks stay after a 2 week inter-rail stint with laundry. The main bedroom is large with plenty of storage. The en suite shower / laundry room is small and functional but as the only bathroom has to be used by any other guests sleeping in the main reception on the sofa beds. The very large sun terrace has pleasant views although the sea is a long way off, ample drying space, sun loungers and a large patio table / chairs which was just perfect for leisurely breakfasts whilst planning the day's activities. There is a bakery beneath the apartment but you'd hardly know (very quiet). Only white bread and pastries were available so I preferred to use the excellent local shop 50 meters away where granary loaves, excellent local cheese, fruit, veg, beer and wine (the reds to my palate being more successful than the still entirely quaffable whites) could be had at fair prices. The Post Office has just about the most flexible opening hours I've ever seen - something like 8am to 8pm ..and is even open on Sundays. You can draw cash on a card from there too..good to know as a lot of Croatian restaurants / cafes expect payment in cash only e.g. the Pizzeria in the village. A cursory glance should make it obvious you'll need a car to stay here but it is a good location from which to tour Istra. Swimming is very good with the cleanest water I've seen in the Med (note there are very few sandy beaches - more rocky coves). Do check out the swimming at Krnica Port (3km) and the fish restaurant 'PortoRico' down there being much better (best quality meal we had) though admittedly less convenient than the Pizzeria in the village where service is very very slow - you've been warned. Being my first visit to this area I was surprised just how quiet the region was away from the main coastal towns of Porec, Pula, Rabac and Opatija (Austro Hungarian styled Monte Carlo). The hill towns are like small scale Umbria: Motovun is overrated (you'll be charged for parking there). Go to Vizinada, Oprtalj, Beram, Rum (very atmospheric), Buzet and the hippest place of all Groznjan instead. Visit Vodnjan to see a classic Italian town still with indigenous Italian families who didn't leave after WW2 and pro Tito graffiti. I recommend a trip to Brijuni Island too if only to see the Photographic Exhibition of Tito - a fascinating insight into the man and Yugoslav history. Trivia: The classic war film Kelly's Heroes was filmed in Vizinada! Enjoy your stay.

Our stay at Ljiljana was absolutely wonderful.out of the 5 different places we stayed at during our 2 weeks croatian trip, this was by far the most authentic and relaxing place. From welcoming us to check out , their smile and help were truly appreciated. The place is large tidy clean and comfortable. The village is quiet and has the necessary: little market, bakery and pizzeria. You need a car to get there and access the surroundings. If you are looking for a truly authentic croatian village and experience this is the place to stay

The apartment is located directly in the centre of Krnica opposite of a Pizzeria. It takes about 5-10 minutes by car to drive to a nice and silent beach (rocky beach). The apartment is in a well condition and very clean and has a very beautiful terrace where you have a view on the sea. Ljiljana and her husband were very nice and friendly. W-Lan connection was working only on the terrace. A bakery is directly below the apartment, coffee in the morning can be bought in the Pizzeria opposite. A supermarket and post office is located opposite of the apartment. We would definitely recommend the place and come again.

We spent ten wonderful days in Ljiliana's house in Krnica. It was our first trip to Istria and we just fell in love with it :) Ljiliana thank You for everything! 1. The hosts: Ljiliana and her husband are very friendly and helpful. Ljiliana's friend, Dragona, who works in a travel agency ten metres from the apartment speaks English and German fluently and she gave us every information we needed about the area - beaches, shops, things worth seeing etc - we also got some prospects which was very useful. 2. The appartment: very clean - everything almost new - towels, beddings - fresh and nice smell. A very nice thing about the appartment is that it is not a "non style" building. It is made of stone and wood, with a cozy terrace, which gives this place a traditional climate. Beeing there you can feel like a member of this small society :) Next to the appartment there is a coffe bar, people sit and talk sometimes till the morning - we loved that relaxing sound of whispered conversations coming from outside :) but If you close the the window every noise disappears - it's quiet. The rest - like in the description - air conditioning, wifi, parking place etc. - everything is ok. 3. Location: If you have a car - great. You can go to Pula, Kamenjak, Rovinj and many other beaufiful places. There are beaches two km from the appartment ( 3 min by car), but I personalny prefer Racaj (about 10 min by car) with the amazing view from St. Agnes church.

Wunderschönes Appartment mit großer Terrasse mitten in Krnica. Alles Notwendige (Pizzeria, Restaurant, Supermarkt) ist in 1min zu Fuß erreichbar, zum Strand fährt man ca 5min mit dem Auto. Liljana und ihr Mann sind unglaublich nett und hilfsbereit - perfekte Voraussetzungen für einen entspannten und ruhigen Urlaub.

Es waren wunderbare Tage in krnica, die Wohnung liegt direkt in einem kleinem Dorf. Gegenüber ist ein exzellenter Italiener, die Pizza ist wirklich Weltklasse wir wurden herzlich empfangen und die Gastgeber waren mehr als freundlich. Wir waren mit unseren zwillingsmädels 14 Monate dort und ohne etwas gesagt zu haben gab es einen extra Sonnenschirm und ein tor zum Balkon wurde angebracht. Die Terrasse ist wirklich unglaublich schön, wir haben uns wirklich wohl gefühlt. Vielen Dank.
