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 in a cot or child in a fold-out bed), 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 book into breakfasts, dinners and culinary activities taking place at the main house when it is open (usually May to October), by prior arrangement. When the main house is open breakfasts are served daily at 9am, dinners twice a week on Wednesday and Saturday evenings, and snack boards and drinks are available on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday evenings. Please book breakfasts and dinners at least 2 days in advance. Those keen to cook with us, and staying longer (a week or more) may also be able to book a cooking class or activity with Anna (usually on a Tuesday or Friday morning, subject to availability). See our ‘Food’ page for more information.
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 right next to our main house, and also close to our neighbours. We therefore request that guests do not play music outside, and respect our quiet hours, which are 10:30pm-8:30am.
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.

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.
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 7+ nights receive a discount. See above for full details.
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 700 euro 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 will result in the loss of your booking.
For a full refund you need to notify us in writing of your wish to cancel at least 60 days in advance of the arrival date. For a 50% refund you need to notify us in writing of your wish to cancel at least 30 days in advance of the arrival date. If you cancel later than 30 days in advance we will not be able to refund any monies paid.
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 10pm. Sometimes earlier check-in or bag-drop is possible, but only by prior arrangement.
