Surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves and wild gorges lies our Picus Guest House looking out on lake Butoniga. Refurbished and handmade furniture is combined with modern design. Podmeja is a small, authentic village where people grow their own food. You can buy local olive oil, wine, eggs, jam, rakija... It's a perfect area for hiking and enjoying nature, and a peaceful base for exploring the peninsular. As your neighbors we will be available to help you in any way we can. Kids are welcome!

The space
The house is an open space studio with bedroom upstairs, and kitchen/living room (incl. sofa bed) downstairs, spacious balcony and terrace. The kitchen is well equipped. There's a wood burning stove, AC, dishwasher, and a bathtub with a view.

Guest access
The balcony and terrace that connect the two houses will be totally to your disposal. The land around the house is about 2000 square meters and you're welcome to use it.
At a view point in the garden, there is a small modern "hobbit house", half dug into the ground. It's good for kids to play in or can be used for taking a nap during the day. Next to that is a fireplace for barbecue.

Other things to note
We have a young cat that might visit the veranda. She likes to be cuddled. However, she's not allowed into the guest house out of consideration for guests with a cat hair allergy.

You might hear our kids from time to time.

Location

Grimalda, Croatia

Not many people know about these hills and gorges in the heart of Istria, away from the hustle and bustle of the touristic coast. And yet, the coast is about an hour away in each direction, which allows for day trips to the beach. This is an ideal place for people who like to go for hikes or just relax in a calm, beautiful place. It’s also a good base for exploring the peninsular by bike or car. There's a very good restaurant, a grocery store and ATM in Cerovlje, a 12 min drive away. Nearby there are small hill top towns to discover and beautiful fresh water pools to dip in. (Lake Butoniga is a drinking water reservoir and not for swimming.)

I’m German but lived in Norway for many years. In Oslo I met Andelko, my Croatian man. We have two kids (Paulo 5 and Samu 3). About three years ago we moved to Istria and love it here. Now that the guest house is finished we are happy to share this beautiful hideaway with travelers!
