Holiday House

Holiday house « Trakošćan » is located in Trakošćan in Croatian Zagorje, on an exceptional location, just opposite the Trakošćan castle.

What makes us distinguishable is the captivating view of Croatian most famous castle, which was recently listed among the top three most beautiful places in Croatia (CNN, Huffington post).

The house is a Category III (***) and was completely renovated in 2013, and the furniture as well as the other equipment is new. We started renting in 2014.

The house has two bedrooms (for 4 people) upstairs. The kitchen has all the necessary equipment/dishes for cooking, a fridge, high-quality drinking water, a stove, an oven, etc. On the ground floor there is a bathroom with a shower and a toilet, and there is one more toilet upstairs. On the ground floor there is a living room with a large glass wall overlooking the Trakošćan castle, a large seating set adjustable for seating/semi-sitting/lying, a plasma TV, a dining table, and radiators and a wooden fireplace for colder days and a nicer atmosphere.

There is even a barbecue at your disposal, with an outdoor table and benches overlooking the castle, as well as a hammock in the shade of sour cherry trees. Parking is provided. Pets, as well as smoking, are not allowed inside the house.

The house was refurbished with love and attention to details (there is a few antiques from the region, old photos of people from Trakošćan-Bednja region, books, the prints from eminent painters, social-games, brochures and a list of the attractions and activities in Trakošćan and the area, etc.). With a desire to be functional and simple but rich in content, we have tried to meet the needs of travelers and tourists, who can expected to find everything they might need, from comfort to information.

Relax by going for a walk around the lake or by sightseeing the Trakošćan castle (5min walk) or simply enjoy the peace and quiet of our living room, the wooden fireplace and the view of the castle. The view of the castle is visible from all parts of the living room – through a 5 meters long glass wall, from the bedroom (and the bed ☺), and of course, from the courtyard and the barbecue area. Our holiday house is the ideal place for a vacation, with peace and privacy guaranteed!

In the vicinity of the holiday house there is also the hotel “Trakošćan” with its comprehensive wellness programs (5min walk), the Forest Park Trakošćan and the Macelj forest and mountain Ravna gora (hiking). Also, a short driving distance away there are Ivanec (20km) and the Ivanščica Mountain (hiking), Krapina (21km) and the world-famous “Krapina Neanderthal Museum” and Strahinjšćica Mountain (hiking), Varaždin (42km) with numerous museums and its Old Town, beautiful gardens and the forest park Arboretum Opeka – Vinica (27km), and many other castles of Croatian Zagorje (Veliki Tabor, Maruševec etc.).
