Relais & Chateaux Wine Hotel and Restaurant Meneghetti

Reviewed June 10, 2014

Wife and I recently discovered this place and decided to check it out by making a reservations for lunch. It's a bit tricky to get to since the last several kilometers of road is non paved white road. So leave your black Bentley at home because it will be white by the time you get there. But this is in no way a deterrent because it adds to the charm and exclusivity of the place. The sprawling property is enclosed by stone walls and gates. You announce your arrival by ringing the intercom bell and they open the gate electronically. Looking around you see vineyards, olive groves, grass fields and woods. You drive through a tree lined path to the main house. It consist of a small boutique hotel, restaurant, and the indoor pool. Few hundred feet away is the outside pool with plenty of room for sunbathers and shaded areas for old folks like me. In the other direction is the winery complex and the olive oil processing area. Peace and quiet abounds, all you hear is the birds and clinking of the glasses if you are near the restaurant. The menu is limited but the dishes are creative visually and gastronomically. The wine is just as wonderful. This was a wonderful meal on par with finer restaurants abroad. We then visited the winery and sampled all of their wines. We went home with several cases in our trunk. So if you are looking for a place to simply relax and enjoy the good life, this is it.

Dear Branko2013,

greetings from the Meneghetti Hotel & Restaurant. Thank you for your kind words and review.

We really like our road to the relais, you are completely right when you say it adds to the charm and exclusivity of the place this is the reason why we want to keep it this way. As far as the restaurant is concerned, it might seem limited at first but upon request our Chefs always prepare something special for our guests. We would be more than glad to surprise you next time!

Hope to see you again and kind regards,

It is in a remote location but from the moment you enter the gate, it is absolutely stunning, vineyards and olive trees, outside and inside pool, sauna ! You should try the restaurant as well, it is a bit pricy but the food they serve is very good, also the wine they produce is worth trying !

Room Tip: We had the attic room, is very nice but my partner is tall and he could not stand under the shower h...

We booked this hotel on a bit of a whim and somehow discovered the most wonderful and amazing place in all of Croatia. We would literally fly back to the country, rent a car, and drive all the way to Villa Meneghetti just for the chance to stay here again.

The drive to the property is a bit of an adventure. It's hard to find, and you'll think you're going the wrong way when you're on a gravel road for a couple miles, but keep going. As soon as you arrive at the gates, you'll see the magical place that they've created. The property is gorgeous. It's a small complex of stone buildings, surrounded by vineyards with a pool out in the back. There was so much thought put into the design of this place... a lovely courtyard for dining, an outdoor seating and relaxing area, an indoor living room for reading, an indoor pool for cold weather and an outdoor pool for hot weather. Best of all... two reading cabanas near the pool. We took a dozen pictures of the property alone, it's so well designed, thoughtful and pretty.

Our room was the Deluxe Suite. Wow. It is a two story room in its own little cottage, with plenty of amenities, a fantastic bathroom and a huge lofted bedroom. Super comfortable and very elegant. The cottage opened up to the courtyard and had views of the vineyards.

The staff at the hotel were delightful. Everyone was eager to serve, happy to accommodate requests (water at the pool, purchases of olive oil and wine from the vineyard, etc...) and cheerful and polite.

We had dinner at the hotel, which was great. We sat outside, drank the house wine, and ate delicious fish, pasta, vegetables and dessert. The service was good, the prices were reasonable and the wine was delicious.

My only complaint is that the hotel does not include breakfast in the room price. Given how isolated the location is, there isn't really another viable option for breakfast, and to charge almost $20 USD per person for breakfast, seems excessive. The breakfast was good, but a very standard European breakfast (cheese, bread, fruit, jams, pastry, coffee, juice, etc..).

We can't wait to find a reason to come back!
