Last week, I, my partner and our daughter stayed at Casa Matiki. We had a fantastic stay! The studio was clean and well equipped as well as the rest of the property! Everything we needed was available. The staff is friendly and helpful, they help you with everything! The owner Sonja is a true example of unconditional warmth and hospitality. She took such good care of us! A must to try is the homemade breakfast…our daughter loved the crepes so much. If you are looking for nature, a nice & peaceful place to stay to discover Istria then Casa Matiki is the place to be!!! Enjoy!!!!

We stayed for one week with our three little kids at Casa Matiki and had a wonderful time. We loved the pool, the garden and Sonja‘s breakfast. The donkeys were a highlight for the kids. Feeding them and bringing them to another enclosure was great fun!

Along with the tranquility, comfort, great pool, the lovely and welcoming Sonja, fantastic and well-equipped stone house, outdoor chess board, sunset tower and colourful, stunning grounds, Casa Matiki has some of the best cake that I have ever tasted! A perfect retreat from the stress of city life.

Casa Matiki is a breath of fresh air. Sonja is extremely welcoming and the property is breathtaking, offering much-needed tranquility as an escape from city life. She has chickens, dogs, and donkeys, all of which are well taken care of. I also enjoyed the homemade breakfast, especially the eggs (from her chickens) with sage (from her garden) and fresh meats and cheeses. As a solo traveler I felt very welcome and easily made friends during my stay, the perfect ambiance and acceptance I would hope to receive. Overall an amazing time, and certainly a good night's sleep!

Beautiful and cozy place far away from crowds and noise. Sonja's advices (places to visit, where to eat, what kind of wine to buy) were very good and so useful. Thanks to her we explored Istria and had really great time. Hope to see you, Sonja, next season :) Greetings from Meškis :)

Seven wonderful days spent with Mrs. Sonja. Authentic ambience of picturesque Istria with the awakening of roosters, the scent of wisteria, rosemary and lavender. Mrs. Sonja's creativity can be felt in every corner of this estate. Home-made breakfast - local specialties with the inevitable sweets prepared by Mrs. Sonja for her guests. The special warmth of this estate is given by the benevolent Obama and the charming Tiffany, who delight everyone. Our plan is to make a stay with Mrs. Sonja a tradition and to return at least once a year, like most of her guests.

We are so in love with this place! If you look for a home away from home and love REAL things, you will love Sonja's B&B. The property is stunning, the bed was amazing and the scrambled eggs for breakfast where by far the most delicious we ve ever had ( and probably will ever have).By the way, Sonja owns 4 donkeys ... could a plave be more perfect? Many thanks for having us, K+I

I had a wonderful stay in February here at Casa Matiki. Sofija is super kind and so helpful. All her recommendations were 10 out of 10 points. I visited this place to write my thesis at a quiet location surrounded by mother nature. To reward a good writing session, I visited Pula, Rovinj, Motovun, Pazin & Porec in the evenings. All those cities were less than 30 minutes away from Casa Matiki, highly recommendable!
