our home = your home
WELCOME AT HOME
This lovely 200 years stone barn, located in village Podpeč near Koper is our home for about 100 days per year.
It's a family playground. A place to talk, to meet, to eat, to walk, to hear, to ride, to row to swim, to read, to love. And so much more.
We will be happy to have you as our guests.
This house is a very basic and very cosy barn with beautiful view on the surrounding hills of Istria.
This house is an experiment how to revitalise a ruin. You will enjoy your moments in the house, not to mention the time you will spend exploring the area.
Slow down, relax, breathe. Put your mind to ease and wait for a little magic to happen.
You will exit the motorway at Črni Kal exit and head towards Buzet. Follow the signs for Buzet, until you see the sign for Podpeč. Park at the end of the village and walk for 100 m to reach the house with fantastic view.
Dear guests, I will probably meet you on the day when you arrive, to explain the basics regarding the house and surroundings. After that I will be available on the phone in case you will need some further help.
Please note. This is not a classic guesthouse nor a hotel or fancy Airbnb cottage.
It's a barn. It's an experiment. And it's our home. And you are more than welcome to stay.
That the nature of the house is not fitted for elder people and toddlers. They are both kindly welcome, but you will have to take extra care of them. The stairs are steep, there is a ladder to climb the gallery. Once in the house you are fully responsible for your actions and consequences.
IT IS NOT A PRESS BUTTON HOUSE
There is no TV.
You can talk, read, dance, play, watch fireplace, cook, eat, listen to the music.
There is a digital projector with VGA and HDMI input to watch movies. You'll ave to do a little magic with cables, but you'll manage it. I'm pretty sure.
There is a washing machine. Thanks god.

The stalls and fridge are filled with basic food. We live there and so do you. You can eat and drink the things you find and make a kind of replacement on the occasion if you make it.
No worries mates, keep it simple, we are all mammals.
You know how to deal with it. Or you will learn. Or you'll be cold in wintertime
Sorry, nope. Open the windows, get naked. It helps.

Chain saw, axe, knives, bicycle, kayak, books, oven, FM radio, microscope.
