Opatija house description

Il Palazzo is the perfect accommodation for those wanting a lavish experience of staying in a classic coastal home on the Adriatic. Originally constructed in the 1700s, Il Palazzo retains all the old-world charm that lets you feel the romance of Europe long ago. To ensure your comfort, Il Palazzo's interior has been renovated with modern European amenities and furnishings - classic styling, modern comfort.

Il Palazzo is located in the quaint seaside village of Volosko. With an active fishing community and small boat harbor, Volosko is pleasantly removed from the hustle and bustle of modern European life, allowing you to soak up the Mediterranean charm. Quaint, however does not mean isolated. Just outside your front door you have access to a handful of waterfront restaurants and cafes. Small convenience stores and shops are located just a couple minutes walk away. A beautiful waterfront stroll will take you to the seaside city of Opatija, and a quick 15 minute drive will bring you to Rijeka. Il Palazzo makes an ideal base for exploring or doing business in the region, while having a wonderful seaside retreat to return to at the end of the day.

Il Palazzo is a large home, which spans 4 levels. A large open-plan living, dining and kitchen area with views over a small harbor provides ample space for entertaining or just relaxing. Two spacious bedrooms each have a large queen bed, while the third bedroom can comfortably accommodate an additional adult. The open-plan loft provides an additional queen size bed plus two sofa beds and full bathroom. All sleeping quarters have water views. An outdoor terrace has ample space for setting up an alfresco meal or sun bathing. Il Palazzo also includes a quiet office retreat, sauna and a wine cellar, which is stocked with a selection of wines for you to enjoy during your stay.

                  Volosko, this little fisherman’s village never lost it’s history and identity. It was first mentioned in 1543 but it’s much older. Volosko is situated at the entrance of Opatija and it offers its visitors a delightful ambient with its small harbor, galleries, family owned bar and restaurants. Besides exploring Volosko and its narrow stone streets, First Class Croatia is advising you to visit the following and whatever you choose, if not all, you will not regret it.

                  UCKA Nature park Ucka Nature Park is characterized by an exceptional variety of features in a comparatively small area. Ucka is probably the only place in the world where one can take a photo of the endemic Ucka or Tommasini bell-flower (Campanula tommasiniana) and one of the European locations where patient bird watchers will be rewarded with impressive glimpse of the Eurasian griffon vulture (Gyps fulvus) or golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos). These species are two outstanding representatives of the ornithological life to be found on Ucka, which includes cca. 100 nesting birds and many other birds that occasionally visit the mountain. You can hike to Ucka on one of many trails as well as drive with the car. Here is more info:

                  PLITVICE LAKES NATIONAL PARK Plitvice lakes are recognized as an astonishing natural monument for the benefit and enjoyment of the people now and for the generations to come. Today, 60 years after its establishment, Plitvice Park continues to provide inspiration for visitors becoming nowadays one of Croatia's biggest attractions. Thousands of people from all over the world visit the Park during summer. They come to find peace and relaxation just to experience something different as a getaway from the city. Hiking is a common activity with organized programs for park visitors, other possible activities include: electric boat and train ride, cycling, skiing and rowing.
