The Fisherman's House
Holidays at the countryside
Perina and Frane Matijević have founded the little boarding house many years ago, and their son Tonči, together with his German wife Lisa, has continued to develop it step by step over the years. Their daughter, Perina runs the place now as the third generation of the family. The whole family speak Croatian, German, English and Italian.
The first foreigners came across this place about fifty years ago. At that time Tonči's father was a fisherman and farmer like Tonči. At those pioneering days of tourism, tourists were treated as members of the family as today. The food is picked in the field and caught in the sea, and the wine is from the vineyard produced the year before.
Even today, the guests can, if they wish, begin their day with Tonči, meaning the early birds can go fishing before sunrise, and help pull out the fishing nets. One can choose one's lunch already at breakfast, by picking out from the rich catch of delicious Adriatic fish. Fruit and vegetables are biologically cultivated, and picked shortly before consumption.
The canopied terrace, overlooking the rich vineyard and vegetable garden, is the “dining and living place”. The little boarding house is today a place where one can kick back and enjoy life in sync with nature, yet completely comfortable.
