Bolara 60 is a traditional rural stone house (about 250 years old and now beautifully restored) near the medieval hilltop town of Grožnjan. The kuća is a guesthouse with 4 guest rooms; we offer dinners, cooking classes and include a great breakfast. Next door is a farm where our neighbours make olive oil and wine, but otherwise there are no houses around. It's very green and peaceful here, with views into the truffle forest and Mirna valley, and deer, birds and butterflies all around.

The space
Bolara is a short drive or a scenic walk from Grožnjan (with its famous summer jazz festival), and close to Motovun. Bolara 60 was a traditional stone farmhouse but after being abandoned for about 30 years fell into ruin - it has now been fully renovated (by very skillful Istrian builders and stonemasons!) but we've tried hard to keep the traditional feel. We take our environmental impact seriously: with thick old stone walls and traditional shutters, the house doesn't need air-conditioning, and the heating and hot water come from solar panels and wood from the local forest. Our food is based around our own vegetable garden, eggs from our chickens, and local producers.

Guest access
This is a large bedroom with a double bed and a small single bed. There is a bathroom with bathtub and walk-in shower, and a separate WC, both shared with one other guest room. The kuća has two covered terraces with tables where we serve breakfast, and a courtyard with a pizza oven and grill where we eat in the evening - just let us know if you'd like to join us! It faces on to the garden, the forest and our neighbours' farm, and you can wander wherever you like.

Other things to note
This room has a double bed and a small single bed. We also have a travel cot available on request.
You can book a dinner and/or a cooking class while you're here. We don't allow smoking.
The rate is cheaper if you stay for 3 or more nights, and there's a further discount for 5 or more nights.
We have new strict hygiene measures in place due to Covid-19, and will send you details of our hygiene policy on booking.

The guesthouse is in a two-house hamlet (it's just us and our farming neighbours). The neighbours make fantastic olive oil which we highly recommend buying and using!
