This handsome property belongs to a family outside of Pazin. It was our first port of call as we were going to check in on the dental tourism that Croatia is noted for. Our Dentist was in downtown Pazin and we would drive there tomorrow.
There are a myriad apartments and rooms ( zimmer) to choose from in Croatia, all run by the women of the household, in this case , Danijela Blaskovic , a teacher who manages her home apartments at Sarecki Krov Apartments.. email :firstname.lastname@example.org, site: www.zareckikrov.com
We were given a wonderful two bedroom place for the same rent ( very reasonable) as a one bedroom... with a lovely set up , TV, disc player, large rooms , appointed kitchen,great shower etc....this with a full dinner which she was loathe to charge for.
It was , she said , just the dinner she had given the family. We were grateful for the hearty meal after our long drive across Italy and feasted on lamb/ noodle soup, Croatian gnocchi with chicken, a cabbage relish, fresh rolls, and fritters for dessert. There was also three kinds of a homemade sweet wine for the "aperitif". This wine called Biska was offered in three versions: honey, strawberry and MISTLETOE ! I liked this last one best.
I am already dazzled by the landscapes and the hospitality of this country.
