Setting The Scene 

This type of country estate property does not have an official star rating in Croatia. We would give it five stars. It is simply exquisite. A gated estate with a long drive and accessed by 2½ kilometres of dirt road in one direction and one kilometre in the other direction. Once there, the place will take your breath away. The Estate’s own vineyards and olive groves extend as far as the eye can see among gently rolling hills. A cluster of beautiful stone houses form the hotel and restaurant and winery. Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon produced here are award winning. Covering a total area of 120,000 m², a perfect escape from busy everyday life. Especially for gourmets. Pretty village of Bale is a few kilometres away with its narrow stone streets.


25 air-conditioned rooms, suites and residences on two floors, each with its own terrace. Three suites in the main building including the master suite, all have a balcony. Luxurious accommodation. Many wooden floors, heritage pieces from Istria including old farming tools. Sometimes lovely old beams and antiques. Beautifully equipped accommodation with rich fabrics,stylish lighting and period features. Huge double beds. Bathrooms have either bath with shower or walk-in showers. Satelite TV, safe and mini-bar in all rooms. Robes and slippers. Free Wi-Fi throughout the hotel.


The à la carte restaurant has a great reputation. Wonderful menu using local ingredients (think fillet steak crafted in rosemary smoke). Great for gourmets who travel just for dinner here.

Beautiful outdoor terrace for breakfast and other meals. Outdoor heated pool with massive terrace. Sofas and relaxation beds here. Balinese beds on the lawns. Woods are part of the estate. Working winery for visits and tastings. The estate also produces its own olive oil. An impressive indoor pool with glass windows for superb views.

Located between Pula and Rovinj. Just 14 kilometres from Rovinj and 20 kilometres from Pula.

Many repeat visitors. Car essential. Car park.

In the case of Meneghetti, pictures tell the story best. So, fewer words here and more pictures.

We will lay on a self-drive car from Pula airport. The drive will take about 25 minutes.
