About Ana Cvitić

We are a local family who started renovating and renting this house in 2005.

Creativity and ecologicaly based materials was our goal when renovating. We reused all old materials and furniture, walls are painted with hand-made lime pigmented with natural dyes. Inside are only the appliances modern and plastic, all other furnishing is made from wood or stone. Outside is a big garden with local herbs and plants. We like local, rustic houses where you can enjoy peace and quiet, and we try to make our house be like that-relaxing and natural.

Ana Cvitić purchased this house in 2005

Why Ana Cvitić chose Žminj

This property was owned by our family for years (cca 200 years). There lived our aunt until she was 106 years old. Later we decide that it would be a good idea to renovate and rent. We have architect and designer in family, so it wasn't hard to renovate and make some new but still old and rustic house.

What makes this house unique

Our property is in very small and quiet village, so you can enjoy and rest easily. You are also not far away from all bigger cities where you can go to beaches, restaurants, concerts.. We are in centre of Istra so distances are the same where ever you go (cca 25-30 km). Property is made of one house and two apartments in house nearby, so is also suitable for lager families or friends who like to spend holidays together. Or for those who like to meet new people and have playdates for there children while resting in our big garden or reading a book near pool.
