This characterful house is made of local wood and large stone blocks. Located close to the Plitvice Lakes and an hour's drive from the sea, it is nestled amongst the stunning verdant nature of northern Croatia. A perfect retreat for couples&families.
In the house, there are two separate sleeping areas, one with a double and one with twin beds, so it can sleep up to four people comfortably. All pets are welcome. You can cook and eat indoors or outdoors. Your hosts grow their own vegetables and the private gardens are full of beautiful local flowers. The surroundings are tranquil and very lush. Ideal for relaxation and nature lovers. Internet access available on request.
Guests have access to the courtyard and the front garden. Feel free to use the outside stove for cooking as well as the grill. There are two big swings for kids and adults!
Interaction with guests
The hosts do not live on the property. It is managed by a friend of the family. She speaks English and will happily provide local information and directions.
Other things to note
Janja Gora is in the Plaški valley, 400 meters above the sea level. It is green and fertile. There is an abundance of fresh water and you can go fishing or buy fish (trout) to cook on the grill.
Pets are welcome. The apartment is smoke- free. However, it is possible to smoke on the terrace and in the courtyard. Please ! do not put socks/clothes on the top of the burning wood-fired stove !
I am a teacher who has lived in big cities (Zagreb, Vienna, Melbourne) and has found peace and satisfaction in Lika, the lovely, but yet unknown part of Croatia. My family enjoys having people visit and we are interested in sustainable living and free/democratic education. My wife is also a teacher. She teaches English. We are learning about gardening and agriculture. We love home cooking and make our own bread. We are passionate readers. Love world music and movies. Favorite destination would have to be Melbourne where we lived, as well as Vienna! We love cats and dogs and have a few.
