Casa Matiki is a beautiful place, a lot of nature and silent, it is a perfect place to rest, very nice rooms, enjoyed the swimming pool, fresh and delicious breakfasts everyday and a lot of cute animals around.

Lovely, picturesque environment surrounded by Chickens, friendly, like-minded people and the opportunity to really relax in the middle of Istria but still only 25 minutes from the beach. Sonja and her team were very helpful. I would definitely go back!

This is a really great place for families. You have to love dogs, cat, chickens & kids to go there which was perfect for us. The ability to cook for yourself while on holiday is really important with kids, so we always opt for apartments when we travel. A garden filled with flowers is lovely and this summer hideout is...

Casa Matiki is like a home away from home. From the moment you set foot on the property you are greeted by Sonja's 3 friendly and energetic dogs.

If the hustle and bustle of Rovinj and Porec is not what you are looking for then Casa di Matiki provides the perfect antidote. Situated in Central Istria it offers a peaceful away from it all retreat while all the famous sights remain easily accessible. Aside from those, make sure you also check out Svetvinčenat (down the road from Zminj),...

Sonja and her family did an excellent job restoring this captivating, last century charmer. They imported and sold used cars for years to build this enterprise, and their dedication to the art of agriturismo hosting really shows. Everything was authentic. We loved it and can't recommend highly enough! Delicious homemade breakfast, too!

We stayed at la Casa di Maliki for a week in September with our two year old son. He loved it.
