“Well, where to start. If you're looking for yours very private hideout with a touch of fairy tale, this is the place! Placed high in the mountains (670m), with nearest neighbors some half kilometer away, this house is a perfect place to spend some tranquil mornings and lazy afternoons. On the other hand, if you're into hiking, your surrounded by huge area to explore, criss-crossed with mountain streams and trails that offer some great scenic vistas. We were warmly welcomed by Matija's parents since he was out of the country at time of our arrival. They are the nicest hosts you could wish for. We had a pleasant chat and they gave us all the info we needed to make our way around a place. They also made sure that if we have any further questions, or if in need of something, we're free to call them anytime we like. They also welcomed us with some gorgeous local pastry which couldn't come in the better time since we were already a bit hungry. Spending night in the mountains is a really not something you experience often if you live in town. First of all, there is no street lights, but the hosts made sure that everywhere you go you have a handy light source at your disposal. The yard is also filled with solar powered lamps that are relatively faint but give you a feeling you're still part of a civilization. Secondly, the place is really, really quiet and at the night the only sound you can hear comes from field crickets and this peacefulness made sure we had a great restful sleep. The house is not connected to power grid and all electricity comes from solar panels mounted on the house roof but we have not experienced any power shortages although we were using lightning very lavishly. There is a cell tower coverage but no broadband internet access which we actually found to fit perfectly our getaway weekend plan. To sum things up, if you love mountains and want to go somewhere to recharge your batteries, this is the place. We'll sure try to visit this great place again!”

“I will just contribute to all the compliments already said to Goran and his place. We are really happy that we listened to other reviews and visited. Goran welcomed us very warmly, he and his wife prepared a dinner (really, some of the best food I've ever had). Breakfast was great too. And on top of that, all the mountains with great views! It was not a stay, it was a full experience! :) would definitely come back :)”

We are definitely coming back, it would be amazing to see this place in every season as the scenery changes.”
