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.

Grožnjan, Istarska županija, Croatia

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!
