About this listing
Typical 19th century house of the Kvarner bay renovated with a lot of love. The house has thick rocky walls offering great chill during summer. Offers a great view overlooking the bay. It has quiet surroundings, yet is close to towns and beaches.
The apartment is situated in Medveja, which is part of the town of Lovran near Opatija. This peaceful area, surrounded by nature lies 500 m from the sea with a beautiful view of the town of Rijeka, the islands of Krk, Cres, Mali Lošinj and the Kvarner bay.
This is a rustic apartment in a typical old house fully renovated in 2012. The apartment is approx. 40 m2 large with bedroom (double bed with additional single bed), bathroom and kitchen. The old rocky walls offer great protection against the summer heat without the need of air-conditioning.

Interaction with guests
I or my parents will welcome you at check-in. Will show you around and try to inform you well about the necessities. I live 1 hour drive from Medveja, in Koper, Slovenia. I am reachable by mobile any time. Via e-mail I usually respond within hours.
Kali is the name of the hill above Medveja. This is a rural area with few houses. Near the house is the famous Konoba Kali, a great restaurant with local cuisine. Neighbours are farmers.
Medveja is a great starting point to visit the whole of Istria (Pula, Rijeka, Rovinj, Grožnjan), for hiking in the natual reserve of the mountain of Učka, caddle yourself in the restaurants and shops of Opatija or hop on the nearby islands of Cres, Krk and Mali Lošinj. What a place to be ;).
Other things to note
The house is on a steep hill. Positive side of this is the great view. The downside is that a vehicle is recommended to move around.
Treat the property with respect, as you would your own house.
Apart from trying to be a great host, I love to travel too since I can remember. That is why I work in the touristic business since a teen-ager.
The world is great and we only need to get to know it ;)
