  • Dobar dan. Is the room facing the garden or the street? Hvala, Michael
    All our rooms are facing the garden(s). There is a local small road near the b&b on which during the day will pass 4 or 5 cars. The place is exetremely quite.

The B&B is situated near the Parenzana (2.5 km by road to Groznjan, or 0,8 km offroad shortcut) and we offer a complete service: home made dinner (only by reservation, minimum 4 persons), shuttle service for bikes (classic is Porec-Muggia) and mechanical help/workshop. Antonela is specialised in traditional istrian cooking and everybody love her plates. I am specialised in big enduro tours in the Balkans and North Africs, and in Istria I run the Parenzana Bike Shuttle. Welcome to our home!
Antonela and I opened this B&B because we love Istria and we want to help you to discover it! She was born here (in the village where the B&B is) while I moved here from Trieste more than 10 years ago. We are specialized in outdoor tours / MTBikes.
Buje / Groznjan (Buie / Grisignana) zone is very interesting: only 15-20 minutes from the seaside of Umag and Novigrad, but quiet and "authentic". Our village (Glavaci / Gardossi, inside Buje administration) is made of 4-6 homes, and extremely silent and quite and safe. 20 meters from the B&B you are already in the woods (that's ok if you love MTBike or nordic walking) and you are few minutes away from Parenzana. Here you can find olive oil and wine producers. You will love this zone of Istria... and of course wonderful Groznjan few minutes away.
