My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa Matiki. The accommodation was perfect: new, clean, very well decorated with a comfortable bed. It is perfect for a couple but also small families. The apartment also has a lovely outdoor patio that would be perfect for the summer nights in Isteria. So many things to do at Casa Matiki... More

A little piece of paradise. We stayed for the weekend and had the time of our lives. The moment we came we fell in love with the place. Sonja, the owner was amazing and made us the best breakfast ever with fresh ricotta cheese and scrambled eggs from her own hens. Beside hens we enjoyed the company of all animals... More

In September, we stayed just under a week at Casa Matiki and had an absolutely delightful time. Sonja is the ultimate hostess, and I enjoyed chatting with her about the area, her history in developing her B&B and of course, hearing about and enjoying her fabulous breakfasts! Matiki is perfectly located; you are surrounded by fields and feel like you're... More

Right now we're planning our holidays for this summer and would like to stay at Casa Matiki again. Last year we had some wonderful days there, full of sun and a lovely caring hostess. Sonia's breakfast was the first highlight every morning, especially her lemon cake. The lodging itself was also really nice and comfortable - our son (5) said:... More

It is so wonderful to read your comments about Sleeping in the Hay! You and your little boy, had quite an experience even when the summer weather was not perfect. There is a lot of romance in living a rustic life, with candles! The donkeys loved cuddling with your small man and they look forward to doing it again. We... More

We spent two nights at Casa Matiki and really enjoyed it. Sonja is a great host, her breakfast was incredible, and her restaurant recommendation was one of the bests we had in Croatia. While Zminj itself is not a major destination, its a good central place from which you can explore the Istrian peninsula.

It is always a pleasure to welcome our special guests from Alaska, who traveled by bicycle to Matiki from Italy! We had some great conversations about Alaska while your relaxed with us before you visited the rest of Croatia. Good to hear that you thought so highly of the restaurant recommendation, too. Ciao to Alaska and all the Alaskan volcanos!... More

Dear Ranka, Thank you for your kind comments. We are delighted that you appreciated the tranquility here in Matiki as creating such an atmosphere is one of our main aims.
