About this nature house

Surrounded by rolling hills, olive groves and wild gorges lies our Nature House looking out on lake Butoniga. The naturehouse is an open space studio, with kitchen/living room + sofa bed downstairs, and bed room and bathroom upstairs. The bed room is connected to a large terrace where you can enjoy your morning coffee with a view. From the bath tub you also have a beautiful view. They arranged the house with a lot of care. Refurbished and handmade furniture is combined with modern design. It's simple but cosy. On colder days you can make a fire in the wood stove, on hot days use the air conditioning. The kitchen is very well equipped and contains a dishwasher. The terrace and balcony that connect the two houses are completely to your disposal. As neighbors they can help you with recommendations, and lend you things like hiking maps, books, or things for kids (they have two children, 5 and 3 years old). It's possible to make a barbecue in the garden or in their old house (see pics).

Nature and surroundings

The landscape in this non-touristic part of Istria is especially dynamic and exciting to explore. Wild gorges with their creeks and forests make their way through small patches of cultivated land... olive groves, orchards, wineyards and fields of grain and veggies. Podmeja is a tiny, authentic village where people grow their own food. You can buy local olive oil, wine, brandy, eggs, honey... It's a perfect area for hiking and enjoying nature and there are a few paths you can take directly from the guest house. Lake Butoniga is a drinking water reservoir so not for swimming, but there are some beautiful fresh water spots not far from here as you can see on the pictures. People in this central part of Istria are friendly, open and modest, still unaffected by the tourist crowds from the coast. There are many old hill top towns to explore around here. It takes about an hour to reach the coast in each direction, though, so trips to the beach and coastal towns are fully possible.
