The terrace offers a view on one of the most beautiful Croatian rivers – Mreznica, which is 50 m away from the house. The river is safe for swimming (especially for kids and pets).

About Željko Magovac

I grew up along the river Mrežnica and all my early childhood memories belong there.

Now my 4 years old kid adores the place.

The river Mrežnica has always been my passion, which is visible through positive vibrations I try to send to my dear guests.

You are always welcome!
