See our selecton of sample itineraries which feature San Rocco

Voted the best boutique hotel in Croatia multiple times, the San Rocco is a slice of family run heaven in northern Istria.

Located in the vowel deficient village of Brtonigla surrounded by olive groves and vineyards, San Rocco is an elegantly converted manor house with thick stone walls and exposed beams.

There are just 14 en suite rooms which are on the whole small but perfectly formed. The best are on the top floor as they have the best views and lovely beamed ceilings in the eaves.

The Fernetich family, who own the hotel, are passionate foodies, and the restaurant serves beautifully cooked local specialities accompanied by a bewildering selection of local olive oils and wines. In summer there is an outdoor terrace where diners can eat and admire the views of classic Istrian hill country.

The hotel's pool is also open in summer, and there's an all-year round spa centre as well.

Why We Love It

It's all about olive oil in this part of Istria, and that's no exception at the San Rocco with an olive oil sommelier on hand to advise which variety to accompany your food, and several of the spa treatments using local oil as well.
