Still not touristic and therefore well preserved as a unique special example of nature and historical coastal architecture.
The Paola special is the possibility of buying the home produced and absolutely natural food, cultivated from old sorts of seeds and naturally fertilized. All this can be found along the wall towards the neighbour in whose garden the guests can also do their own fruit and vegetable picking.
The house is situated in Šapjane, small and quiet village in the vast area of the Mediterranean green in the hinterland of Opatija. It is called after granny Paola built by her father way back in 1896 and almost entirely preserved in its original state.
In the times of the classical antiquity the area carried the name Liburnia and Šapjane village is nested on the site of ancient Roman locality Ad Titulos. In the immediate vicinity there is a preserved ancient Roman fort that is worth a visit.
The house Paola comprises of 3 large bedrooms with two beds each, living area with a fireplace and a balcony (65 m2), a larger bathroom and one separate loo, dining room with two dining tables, a room with a fireplace and a traditional kitchen with a cistern, all together 350m2 large. The floors, windows and all the furniture are made of wood and date from the time the house was built. This result in very slight vibration, a specific sensation not necessarily liked by everyone.
Two sides of the house have a garden, so it is possible to enjoy a pleasant shade at any time of the day. The front garden is made of terraced lawns and overlooks beautiful and pure nature. It is furnished with a shaded table for dining or any day activity and as such it represents the central part of the house. There are several tables in the garden, so at any time one can always choose the best and the most pleasant spot. To get refreshed when temperatures rise too high, the big garden is equipped with a Jacuzzi (2.2m) for 4 and chaise lounges for relaxing.
