Heritage Hotel San Rocco is a beautiful boutique hotel located in the heart of northern Istria, in the ancient and picture-perfect village of Brtonigla, famous for its many vineyards and olive groves.
The Fernetich Family had a vision, they wanted to restore their family home into a charming boutique hotel where people can enjoy a typical village life, relax and taste the best local food prepared by the chef and appreciate the surrounding natural beauty. The result, they have not only managed to create a beautiful boutique hotel where one can relax and take a step back from the everyday life, in beautiful surroundings, but San Rocco's restaurant is nowadays, amongst of the best restaurants in Istria, attracting many people from different locations.
The three main buildings, the landlord’s house, the barn for the Istrian oxen and the third building used as storage for agricultural tools, were painstakingly restored under strict regulations in 2004. Although located in the very centre of Brtonigla, the hotel is surrounded by a large garden and olive groves where guests can enjoy peace and quiet, read a book in the natural shades of the trees or just doze off, lulled by the sounds of the untouched nature.
The owners of this charming boutique hotel also manage it with an attention to detail and a broad smile. The striking colours or the hydrangeas meets your eye the moment you step in from the car park, and beyond the restaurant, you can lure into the garden and lose yourself as this is not your typical hotel, it is a small sanctuary, a real discovery in the heart of northern Croatia.
