Stay in the Kuća

‘the main house’

The Kuća (pronounced “KOO-cha”) is our home, which we share with guests from early summer to autumn. It has 4 guest bedrooms, beautifully furnished in timeless style each with their own wash-basin. Each bedroom shares a bathroom and WC with one other room.

Each room features shuttered windows that look out across surrounding hills and forests, perfect for nature spotting. If you are staying during the colder months our classic cast-iron radiators and log-burning stoves will keep you warm. During the hot summers the thick stone walls, solid wood shutters and fans will keep you cool.

All bookings for guests staying in the Kuća include a generous breakfast served on the terrace or in the “konoba”.

Guests can also book dinners (3 times a week) and culinary activities with Anna if they wish, subject to availability. Read more about dining and cooking at Bolara 60 here.

The Kuća will suit anyone looking for rural tranquility and makes a great base for exploring the region. Our guests enjoy day-trips to the coast and nearby hilltop towns, beautiful early summer and autumn walks, making the most of the area’s fantastic restaurants, and back at Bolara 60 meeting others, dining together and sharing the terrace and garden spaces. If you would like to be able to cook for yourself you can instead book the Kućica, which is self-catering.

So as not to disturb other guests we do not allow guests to bring pets to the Kuća. Our own cat, Fluffy, (an extremely friendly adopted stray who was named in a hurry) is not allowed in guest bedrooms, and naturally we keep her away from indoor cooking and dining activities, so those with mild allergies should not suffer. If you have a severe cat allergy we suggest you book the Kućica, in which cats are not allowed. Both the Kuća and Kućica are non-smoking.
