Cosiness prevails at the Croatian boutique hotel San Rocco, close to the Slovenian border and the Istrian coast. In 2004, the owners transformed an old family estate with a mansion and two annexes into a holiday resort with all kinds of comfortable facilities. Their warm hospitality speaks volumes. Their acclaimed restaurant serves gourmet meals with a personal touch. Definitely worth discovering!
The hotel is open all year round.
Check-in is possible from 3 pm. Check-out is before 11 am.
From 209 euros.
San Rocco has over 1000 olive trees and produces its own olive oil.
The rooms are all very different and are located in the former villa, which is the main building, or in the former ox stable, the annexe. Some rooms are below the roof. They have small windows and a view of the village, garden or swimming pool. All come with parquet or carpeted floors, air conditioning, heating, telephone, satellite TV, free Wi-Fi, free safe, and minibar. In the bathroom you will find a bath or shower, toilet, bidet, hairdryer and magnifying mirror.
The vintage room, which was recently renovated, is our favourite room.
The outdoor swimming pool, set among olive trees, is open all year round. There are loungers and parasols available.
There is a small wellness centre with a free indoor pool, which is heated during the winter months, and a sauna. For an extra fee you can get massages and treatments. Just 5 kilometres away, you can relax on sandy beaches. Wine tastings are also possible in the hotel's wine cellar.
There is a breakfast buffet, which you can enjoy on the terrace when the temperatures are pleasant. The restaurant San Rocco, with a terrace, is known throughout Croatia for its refined and light gastronomic dishes, inspired by Istrian culinary traditions, enriched with an innovative touch, prepared with the best products from the region or from its own organic selection.

The hotel has a second restaurant in the village, about 50 metres away, wine shop 'Konoba Primizia', where you can taste traditional Istrian dishes and purchase the best olive oil and wines.
