Stay in the Kućica

‘the small house’

The Kućica (pronounced “KOO-cheetsa”) is a small house, attached to, but independent of the main house. Sleeping up to 5 (including one baby or small child), it has 2 bedrooms furnished with hand-made and vintage pieces.

The Kućica is self-contained and rented on a self-catering basis year-round. It has an open plan kitchen-dining-sitting room in the old stone cow-shed at the bottom of the house. This room opens onto a covered terrace with seating, a grill and beautiful view across the Mirna valley. Guests are also welcome to make use of the garden and meadow.

Guests in the Kućica can also book into breakfasts, dinners and culinary activities taking place at the main house when it is open (in 2020: 30th April to 1st November), by prior arrangement and subject to Anna’s availability. When the main house is open breakfasts are served daily at 9am, dinners usually twice a week on Wednesday and Saturday evenings, and cooking classes usually once a week on a Tuesday or Friday morning. See our ‘Food’ page for more information about dining and classes.

The Kućica is perfect for couples, families or small groups looking for a peaceful rural escape. Due to the many stone surfaces and steps in and around the house it may not be suitable for adventurous toddlers or those with walking difficulties. Extremely well-behaved pet dogs may be allowed, but please check with us first. Cats and other animals are not allowed inside the Kućica so that future guests with allergies will not suffer.

The house is non-smoking, although you can smoke on the Kućica terrace.

The Kućica is available to rent on its own or in conjunction with additional rooms in the main house. We do not rent single rooms in the Kućica.

Bedrooms in the Kućica

Booking terms and conditions

Please contact us to make your reservation. You can request particular dates or leave the booking open and let us tell you when we have availability.

Pricing:

Please note that the price of your stay depends on the time of year and the length of your stay. We love guests to stay a bit longer with us to fully relax and explore the area, so stays of 5 nights or more are discounted. See above for full details.

Booking terms:

We charge the full amount on reservation, due within one week. Payment ensures that we hold the accommodation for you. However, if your booking has a value of 4000kn or more, and is being made 4 or more months in advance, then you can pay a 50% deposit and the balance will be due by one month before arrival. Failure to make payments by the dates given may result in the loss of your booking.

Cancellation terms:

For a full refund you need to notify us in writing of your wish to cancel at least 3 months in advance of the arrival date. For a 50% refund you need to notify us in writing of your wish to cancel at least 1 month in advance of the arrival date. If you cancel later than 1 month in advance we will not be able to refund any monies paid.

Damages deposit:

We may require you to pay a damages deposit in advance of your stay. This will be repaid in full shortly after your visit provided the Kućica is left in good condition. Of course we expect some wear and tear, but should there be significant damage to our property, belongings or surroundings we will need to keep the damages deposit in order to carry out repairs.

Arrival and departure:

Please note that check-in is possible between 5pm and 11pm, and check-out is by 10am. This gives us the time we need to turn around the house between guests. If you would like to check-in earlier please contact us to request this in advance; if we are not too busy we may be able to have the Kućica ready by 4pm, but only by prior arrangement.

Please also note that check-in is not possible on Sundays during high season, so please plan to start your stay with us on any day apart from a Sunday during this period. This allows us a half day off per week during a very busy time!

Your data:

When you make a reservation at Bolara 60 we will store information such as your name and email address so that we can manage your booking and communicate with you before and after your stay. Read more about how we handle your personal data here.
