Located in Croatian inland, in Karlovac County, right between Zagreb and Adriatic coast, this estate is the perfect place to get lost and find peace. Set in an idyllic and supremely private location, enjoy the beauty in simplicity & reconnect with nature surrounded by plum orchards & lush greenery.
This place is an ongoing project which started in 2012 by planting organic plum trees on 7 hectares of land. In the last three years houses on the property were completely renewed and turned into the tourist platform that offers accommodation and unique experience.
This property is designed to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, save water and energy and reduce waste during the house’s lifetime. It is surrounded with pesticide-free field of 3000 plum trees. Out of plums, the owner makes organic plum jam and sljivovica plum brandy, both can be tasted while your stay at the estate. Made during late summer/early autumn with carefully selected plums, the plum jam is one of those classic preserves that breakfast can not pass by without. Sljivovica plum brandy is one of the most well-known brandies in the region, and is often used as a synonym for brandy.
Location that is only one hour drive from the major Croatian airport (Zagreb) makes this retreat spot even more desirable and perfect in all four seasons.
There is more to Croatia than just the gorgeous coast…we are talking about the continental part of the country, and it’s beautiful as well! The inland has so much to offer – there are beautiful cities, old castles, big rivers, archaeological sites, and natural wonders. This perfect retreat gem is situated in Lika-Karlovac region, area that connects north and south of Croatia. Beside its rivers, mountains, intact forests, lakes, gorges and caves, the Lika – Karlovac region will delight you with the largest number of national parks and nature parks. The most famous park is the beautiful Plitvice Lakes, which is only one hour car ride from the estate.
For yoga classes, at your disposal is a separate wooden barn that has been reconstructed into magnificent yoga shala.
Warmly designed 100 square meters, space big enough that can take around 20 people inside and 20 people outside on a terrace with a roof, depending on the wishes and needs of the group. Terrace is turned directly to the west, so it makes a place perfect for watching sunsets and chilling with friends.
This barn has two additional bathrooms and three single beds in the gallery.
Three former wooden barns have been fully restored to an incredibly high standard and now offer perfect holiday accommodation for up to ten people. While renovating every effort was made to retain the original features such as the wooden beams and traditional facade. Each house has an open space concept – on the ground floor there is a fully equipped kitchen connected with a dining area, and bedrooms are located mostly on top floor. Each house has a comfortable bathroom. Every house has an outdoor space with seating area and it is equipped with a private hot tub which can be enjoyed during the whole year.
Cheese, beer, wine, honey, cabbage, mushrooms, freshwater fish and fruits of the forest are the main gems of the Karlovac County’s gastronomy. Travel through time and try many delicious meals that locals used to eat, and let traditional flavors combined with modern culinary creations sweeten your stay in this area.
Before starting your retreat, we will communicate in detail about needs and preferences of your group and based on those our resident cook will prepare an offer of carefully selected dishes. Our offer will be based on local cuisine. All ingredients are being purchased locally, and according to the offer on that day we will suggest your dinner menu. You can be sure that is going to be fresh, balanced, rich with nutrients and delicious.
Each room in these houses is different and perfectly unique. There is only one segment which is the same: wood. This simple but beautiful material gave a warm and welcoming look to all the rooms. Here immediately you will feel cozy and comfortable. Most rooms have a double bed, great for a couple or girlfriends, or single if you feel like you need your own space. There is one large room with four single beds that serve as a perfect base for making new friends while retreating.
Extremely convenient for this retreat location is the proximity to Zagreb airport, which is Croatian largest airport. Zagreb airport is connected with European main cities through the whole year. From the airport it takes only one hour car ride to get to the house. Depending on the needs of the group, either van or car transfer can be arranged.
