Sonja, the owner of Casa di Mitiki, runs her good B&B with enthusiasm and obvious experience. She is also an accomplished cook, and her breakfasts are not to be missed. It's a quiet location with a secure car park, and the rooms are spacious and reasonably comfortable, without being luxurious. Zminj is a good place to be based in Istria,... More

We selected la Casa di Matiki because it was centrally located - we were able to easily travel all over Istria from this location.
