The house is secluded, not far from the village Rim where it actually belongs. It was built in 1886 but has been recently redecorated with special love and care and is surrounded by green lawns, an orchard and a forest. Primarily it was meant to be a family house for a family with 2-3 children.
During the renovating and decorating there was one guiding principle above all: the family has to be comfortable and relaxed in the house, both the grown-ups and children have to find something that will calm them down, relax and inspire. That is exactly why only exclusively natural and ecology friendly materials were used for the reconstruction of the house.
There are wood floors throughout the house except in the kitchen and in the bathroom. The walls are mortared in the old fashioned way so the irregularity and warm colours of the walls remind us of our ancestors calm life.
There are two bedrooms and a reading/relaxing area on the first floor. The "open" attic and old beams give a special romantic touch.
The master bedroom is spacious and pleasant. The children's bedroom is like fairyland and the children just love to stay there.
The kitchen, bathroom and pantry are located on the ground floor and are divided from the living room by the wooden staircase leading to the first floor. Thick stone walls and aircondition units will assure the freshness in the whole house even in the hottest summer days.
The washing machine, satelite TV, DVD, radio, completely furnished kitchen with a microwave, coffee machine and many other appliances will make your life as comfortable as in your own home. There is a large terrace in front of the house followed by lawns and meadows. The terrace offers a breathtaking view of this paradise where you can take a rest or doze off in the fresh air.

House is surrounded by 3700 m2 of gardens, green lawns, an orchard and a forest.
According to an old legend, once upon a time, before people populated Istria, giants used to live in Mirna Valley. The main giant was Dragonja (that is the name of the northernmost Istrian river), also called the Plowman Giant because he furrowed the ground from Ćićarija to the sea. Water began to flow through the furrow and giant Dragonja named it Mirna River.
After that, the giants built a series of towns in Istria, such as Motovun, Vrh, Sovinjak, Oprtalj, Završje, Roč and Grožnjan. They were so big they passed each other tools from one hill to another. The legend says they had few rocks left after they built all the towns and that’s how they created Hum – the smallest town in the world. Another one of the Istrian legends says that giant Gorazd, son of Dragonja, still lives, hiding in the forests of Istria.
