Space 2,690 sq. ft.
Property type house
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

House, 4 Bedrooms + loft for 4 people, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7-9)

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.

Royal comfort, beside the sea

  • 5 of 5

Our 8-member family spent a wonderful week in Il palazzo. All our amenities were served by the building, and all the nearby restaurants, bars, shops, cake shops etc. I'm sure we're going to this super comfortable palace.

Beautiful Luxurious Waterfront Home

WOW. What a beautiful home to spend our family vacation in. The entire house has been upgraded with everything needed for an extremely comfortable stay and the beautiful view from the bedroom windows is breathtaking.

Ein Haus mit Charme

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus hat eine exzellente Lage im Hafen von Volosko. Alle Zimmer haben Fenster zum Meer und den wünderschönen Ausblick auf den kleinen Bootshafen. Wenn man sich vors Haus setzt und plaudert kann man sich in der Pizzeria nebenan seine Drinks ordern, fantastisch !! Die Betreuung durch Tea ist ausgezeichnet und wir können die Unterkunft bestens empfehlen.

Amazing place, amazing location

  • 5 of 5

The property exceeded all expectation and was a great place to relax for a week. The restaurant next door was perfect and happy to serve us while sitting on the couch in front of the house. Location was perfect and allowed for a relaxed stay in a small village within walking distance to main sections of Opatija. Property manager Tea was excellent and very attentive to any needs we may have had. Highly recommed this property. You will not be dissapointed.

We would recommend Il Palazzo

  • 5 of 5

Two of us stayed for a week in September 2014 - though the place can accommodate many more, we still used most of the space and had a perfect hoiday.

Il Palazzo an ideal mix of indoor and outdoor accommodation. The walk along to Opatija is gorgoues at any time of day or night.

It can be slightly noisy at the front in the evenings if the windows are open but that didn't bother us at all. Next time, we'll plan to stay longer and do more exploring - the location is excellent for this and we didn't even have a car. There a quite a few stairs in the property so young children would need watching (ditto less able persons).

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

I almost don't want to submit a review. I would rather keep this place as our own little secret. The setting is fantastic. The house is amazing. Our family of six with four small children stayed here and we felt that we were swimming in extravagance. We especially enjoyed stepping out our front door to sit at the kafići or to grab a meal at the restaurants. With small children, it can be hard to enjoy a restaurant meal so we loved being able to call down to the waiters at the Plavi Podrum and asking them to send us up a gourmet seafood dinner to be enjoyed at our private dinner table in the villa. If we had known how perfect this property was, we would have booked it for much longer than 4 days.

Volosko, Opatija and nearby sites

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.

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.


1. Town of Opatija – elegant tourist destination with a tourism industry dating from 19 century

2. Town of Lovran – of all of the places that have developed on the steep eastern slopes of Ucka, Lovran is the oldest.

3. City of Rijeka – you will enjoy amazing tour through history if you visit Rijeka and it’s gems, old roman ruins, churches, beautiful center with many coffee shops, open market and busy fisherman’s docs

4. First Class Croatia is advising you to visit inland of Istrian peninsula to taste homemade olive oil, great wines and enjoy truffle specialities especially town of Motovun, Groznjan, Oprtalj and of course Rovinj. If you have time visit Brijuni National Park with a boat from Fazana.

1. Restaurant Moho, Volosko

2. Restaurant Tramerka, Volosko

3. Restaurant Skalinada, Volosko
