Holiday House

The newly renovated and wonderful “Holiday House Trakošćan” is located in Trakošćan, Croatian Zagorje, on an exceptional location, just opposite the outstanding Trakošćan castle.

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

The house is a Category III (***) and was completely renovated, the furniture as well as the other equipment is new.

The house has two bedrooms upstairs (2 x 2 people). The kitchen has all the necessary equipment and 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, DVD player, CD/radio player, a dining table, air-conditioning and radiators and a wooden fireplace for colder days and a nicer atmosphere.

There is also an outdoor table and benches overlooking the castle, as well as a hammock in the shade of sour cherry trees.
Parking is provided / in front of the house / free.
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 art photos of people from Trakošćan – Bednja region, books on croatian, english, german and french, 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!
