What a lovely, serene place to stay. Dada is a very welcoming host, and her sweet dog ChaCha is there to help you feel at home. Staying at Stancija was a highlight of our trip, and the breakfast on the patio was such a delight. Thanks to Dada we also had the best pizza at Pizza Grimani in town. We... More

Nothing special indeed the estate is OK, the rest is just pretence and ingenuine hospitality. There are better places in terms of value for money.. Lesson learned : will do a better research next time before booking.

Spent 6 loverly days in Stancija 1904 - an unforgettable experience. Upon arrival, Dada - my landlady - offered a Malvasia welcome drink and as I did arrive late, she cooked for me: fish pate, salad with fresh goat cheese, pasta with truffels - and some exquisite red wine. We chatted and I felt home. Every day, the luxury breakfast... More

This fully renovated turn of the last century farm is extremely well located in the heart of Istria. The place has everything you can imagine to slow down the pace of our usual urban and frenetic lifestyle. The location aa well as the facilities are as easy on the eyes as the food is exquisite. The patron, is a very... More

If peaceful and tranquil, large green space and shade trees, good wine and food, out of this world breakfasts, and family run is what you yearn for this is the place for you. It is not located in a town where you have food, drink, or shopping choices. However it is centrally located in Istria and it is easy to... More

We spent some time in this area last year, and wanted to return just so that we could stay here. The ambiance is very special, and our meals were wonderful and thoughtfully prepared. Dada is a charming and gracious hostess, and very helpful. We love that it is so close to the interesting port towns, such as Fazana or Rovinj,... More

I hardly EVER write a negative review, preferring not to write anything if I'm not happy. But I want to say here that this is nice accommodation, but nothing exceptional. We have been travelling for 10 years & stayed in a huge range of accommodation from hostels, hotels, B&Bs, castles - you name it. We have paid a lot more... More

We cannot say enough good things about this charming rural estate in south-central Istra. The decorative motif of stone and wood is carried out in both the apartments and the main house where there is both an indoor and outdoor dining area on the ground floor. The three apartments are all on the ground level and comfortably furnished with a... More

I stayed at 1904 with my 2 year old daughter and pregnant wife this past August. It really was a beautiful property. Dada, the lady who runs the Stancija, was very helpful and really tried to make you feel at home. The food, preparation and hard work that went into breakfast and supper was truly amazing. There was a minor... More

Immediately upon arrival at Stancija 1904, we were treated like family. Although the owner was assisting someone with upcoming wedding arrangements, a visiting friend invited us to sit down and enjoy some drinks on the patio while we waited. The grounds were very nice and the atmosphere relaxing. Our handicap-accessible room was very large and had a full kitchen; however,... More
