We spent the first two nights of our honeymoon here (after a brief stop in Pula) and had a magical stay. Everything about Sonja's apartments is beautifully cared for and thoughtfully arranged for a really comfortable and cozy feel. Sonja was very warm and gave us great recommendations for food and travel in the Istria area. Her breakfast was absolutely... More

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

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.
