Set within the peaceful Croatian countryside lies the family friendly Meneghetti Wine Hotel & Winery.
While this inviting Relais & Châteaux property nestles in the heart of a landscape rich with olive trees and vineyards, there is easy access to a private beach club which overlooks the Adriatic.
The estate, which dates to the 19th century, now produces 14 varieties of wine which you can sample in the restaurant. The traditional-style hotel recreates a welcoming village style resort with distinctive stone buildings, red roofs and painted wooden shutters.
Each of the rustic-style rooms and suites are decorated with local art and have exposed beams. Many have a balcony offering views of the sweeping vineyards and three swimming pools which are dotted around the resort.
Beautifully appointed one- and two-bedroom residences are the ideal choice for families. They not only offer spacious living areas, along with a kitchenette (in the two-bedroom option) but a private terrace and garden.
During your stay enjoy wine pairing dinners at the sublime restaurant which serves the finest meats, fish, truffles, and cheeses from local producers. The menu is infused with seasonal herbs, vegetables, and olive oil. For more casual light bites head to the poolside dining area.
The beauty of the Adriatic coast can be accessed by a private shuttle bus or gentle stroll or jog though the verdant estate.
The beach club is exclusive to the hotel and overlooks the sea towards the Brijuni islands.
Activities at the hotel include wine tasting and vinotherapy in the luxury spa along with truffle hunting. You can also hire a bike and cycle to nearby Rovinj and enjoy some olive oil tasting.
