We stayed at Casa Marsic for 2 nights. The warm fireplace and rustic bedroom made it cosy and welcoming when there was snow outside, and the house is equipped with everything you could want. Our hosts were full of great advice about the local area and amazing restaurants, and gave us grappa and olive oil tastings. We look forward to returning very soon.
Beautiful setting and decor.So comfortable and inviting.Loved their own olive oil.Will return.
Truffle festival is not to be missed in this region.
The home and grounds are beautiful and the owners are so hospitable and friendly. We only stayed for two nights but I would love to go back for longer!
We were also given some of their olive oil as a welcome gift. I think it may be the best olive oil I had in all of Croatia. I only wish we had bought more than the two bottles to bring home!
We were just passing and decide to stop to ask if the sell olive oil.
They asked us inside their house, made a degustation of oils and olives.
Had an amazing experience. Lovely family.
we can only confirm the other reviews for casa Marsic and want to thank Marija, Nevija and Vlado for all real added value they gave us during our stay from 20/7 - 30/7,
For us a fantastic 9 days stay, in a beautiful environment /garden - super apartman - The pictures are already very nice but can't reflect the real look and feel, a real 'paradise '.
Next to that you have a very cosy Oprtalj village with the fantastic local konoba, and many very nice small villages arround you have to visit.
Hope to go back there soon
This July it was the 3rd time that we spent a holiday at Casa Marsic. It is like a paradise! The appartment is designed, furnished and equipped with care and the owners paid attention to every small details. Everything is so clean and new that you have a feeling that you are the first who use the appartement. The house located in a beautiful, quiet green area with a breathtaking view. The surroundings reminded us Tuscany. Hammocks and deck chairs is waiting for you in the garden.
Vlado and his family is a fantastic host, they know exactly what guests need and they also give little suprises (e.g. a bowl of figs from the garden, a plate of freshly baked cake). Vlado brought us to a vine tasting, so we can discover a very good vinery of the region, and they have their own olive oil!
It is a perfect place the discover the inner part of Istria, the beautiful, small ancient towns (do not miss Oprtalj which is in walking distance and Groznjan) and you can reach the seashore in 30 minutes driving.
Casa marsic has everything you need. The views are stunning and the garden beautiful. It was very peaceful and relaxing, especially lazing in a hammock. The owners are very helpful, kindly providing wine and fruit from the garden and we had homemade biscuits. The dog Jakey was very friendly too. The location was perfect with the small charming town of Oprtalj nearby which had a few very reasonably priced restaurants. Also Motovun, was a lovely hilltop town within a short drive and Groznjan was great with its shops full of local crafts. Casa marsic was the perfect place to return to each day. The owner produces Casa marsic olive oil and we were given a bottle each at the end of our stay. This is the perfect place to stay and I hope to return one day.
