What a lovely and relaxing experience we had at Casa Matiki! We were treated like family by our host/owner Sonja…a true sweetheart with wonderful stories and recommendations for nearby dining. The property itself is stunning for those who appreciate a well maintained, rustic accommodation with just enough modern conveniences to satisfy everyone’s tastes. If you are considering a centralized Istrian location to get away from noise and chaos, you need to consider Casa Matiki…thank me later 😊. And thank you Sonja for a wonderful experience.

We really enjoyed our stay with Sonja! She was very friendly, helpful and keeps herself young by running this beautiful place by herself with the lovely animals. It felt like a little paradise with a great central location where you can visit a lot of key places in istria within a half hour drive. We definitely recommend Casa Matiki!

This was one of the most special places we have ever stayed, and undoubtedly the most delightful host! We knew immediately upon driving through the gate that we had chosen the right place to stay. All the little details made us feel at home right away: the hand-painted signs, the personalized welcome board, and especially the bright and cozy kitchen area. We were amazed as we took a walk around the property because there were just so many little hideaways and places to relax. We wish that we could have spent weeks here! Sonja gave us such a warm welcome and we very much enjoyed talking with her every day at breakfast. (Side-note: My husband claims that the scrambled eggs with sage were the best he's ever had!) There are SO many things to see (and eat!) in Istria, and Sonja was nice enough to help us decide what to do during our stay. It was also a treat to be greeted upon returning each evening by the two very friendly dogs, Charlie and Obama. They met us at the door with their tails wagging! We had such an amazing experience here - far superior to staying at a hotel! We can't wait to return in the future with friends and family and stay much, much longer :)

La Casa Di Matiki was a wonderful place to stay, relax and explore Istria. The host Sonja gave us a warm welcome and many good recommendations. Her breakfast, which counts as breakfast and lunch, only serves homemade or local products! So delicious... A vacation of dreams. Thank you Sonja and the staff!

La Casa Matiki in Croatia Istria is a hidden paradise that I can't stop raving about! This place is an oasis of tranquility and natural beauty. The huge garden is like something out of a fairytale, with colorful flowers, fluttering butterflies, and the sweet scent of lavender everywhere. The swimming pool is absolutely lovely, and I couldn't resist taking a dip every chance I got. It's the perfect spot to cool off and soak up the sun. And let's not forget the adorable dogs, Obama and Charlie, who are the absolute sweethearts and added an extra dose of happiness to my stay. The owner, Sonja, is the kindest and most welcoming host. She takes care of every little detail to ensure a memorable experience. The rooms are clean and cozy, and Sonja's recommendations for exploring were spot on and you are perfectly located to explore Istria. If you're looking for a place to unwind, surrounded by nature's beauty and the warmth of a caring host, La Casa Matiki is the place to be. Trust me, you won't want to leave!

Casa Matiki is one of the most beautiful place here in Croatia to make holiday in a calm and non touristic area. The space around casa matiki is beautiful designed and well groomed. Sonja is a very warm host and always engaged to make your holiday perfect 😊. In the Appartement is everything available what you need and you can have a very good breakfast with selfmade cakes and eggs from her own chickens. Evrything is perfect! Thank you for your hosting!

Casa Matiki is a wonderful place when you want to enjoy authentic, rural Istrian life. Away from tourist business we stayed in the small house called Pergola with our two year old son. A cozy bungalow with an own terrace and a very nice shower. The owner Sonja is very friendly and helpful. Despite her resepectful age she makes sure you will have your best possible holiday at her spacious land with chickens (with fresh eggs and newborn chicks), dogs and donkeys, a nice pool area and a tower to watch the sun go down. We had a tasty, with all homemade products, breakfast (it was a lot!) for 14 euro's per person. Can we mention anything that is not satisfying? We think sometimes it's a pity that we heared traffic on the regional road nearby, but thanks to that you have very quick access to all places in Istria. Thanks for having us, Sonja! Hope you'll enjoy life at Casa Matiki for many years 😀

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!!!!
