About the Owner
This lovely place was a magical ruin in 2004. We have used traditional materials and skills where we can, overlayed with the best of modern materials where we had to.

Touch of Magic
We stayed in Cave Romana for the best part of two weeks and even with two grown-up families (total of 10 - minimum age 17, maximum somewhat more) there was plenty of space in and around the house. I counted around 10 different spots to sit outside, depending on what you wanted to do, the time of day and where the sun was. The large round dining table was great for breakfast and a relaxed evening meal – while watching the shooting stars around the pool late into the warm nights was magical. In fact, built into the old quarry, the whole place has a mystical, isolated quality. We also had use of the Topper sailing boat that provided an additional activity and is moored in a lovely creek with a bar and restaurant – walking or cycling distance from the house. We also used clay tennis courts at the nearby hotel and leisure complex. There is plenty to explore and the nearest town on the coast has some lovely beach bars and restaurants where eating out was great value. All this just 20 minutes from Pula airport. But final word goes to Josip who was always happy to help and sort out any problems.
Lovely characterful house in an excellent location
Just returned from a two week holiday at Cave Romana. Lovely house, full of rustic charm and character. Excellent location being very close to Pula and local beaches/restaurants but in a very private setting away from the hustle and bustle. The house has lots of seated areas which were great for our family group (nine people in total) but also allowed for space and privacy. The pool set against the rock backdrop is very attractive.
From the Owner
“Having travelled all over Europe I came across this extraordinary place. Fell into a sleep and woke, decision made. It retains for me what I can only describe as good Karma.”

From the Owner
“The essence of Cave Romana is seclusion and some sort of historical connection to an earlier time through its use of stone and the surrounding primeval woods. Also very handy for Roman Pula, shops and beaches. The Croatian people are very practical and friendly.”
