Overview

Pool Modern Beach Nearby Hot Tub All Bedrooms En-Suite

Villa Danika is a sleek two-storey home finessed with architectural prestige and airy, minimal living spaces close to the Bay of Kvarner in northern Croatia. Casting an impressive silhouette, bearing all the hallmarks of innovative designer panache, this ultra-contemporary home is filled with natural daylight, thanks to the linear design and glass-fronted walls offering far-reaching views.

The outdoor spaces are executed for stylish outdoor living in mind, with a natural indoor-outdoor interplay. The generously-sized pool glistens in an elegant terrace, adorned with indulgent loungers and day beds, setting the scene for post-swim breakfasts or evening drinks as the sun softens over the green vistas. Dining alfresco will be a charming affair, with a modernist dining pavilion and barbecue. Perched high above the wooded plains overlooking a magnificent seascape, this home is a veritable haven of unparalleled style and quality - guests would be forgiven for thinking they had wandered into the pages of an interiors magazine.

Slipping into the bubbling jacuzzi at the end of a busy day of sight-seeing will hit the right note, or enjoying a game of pool with a cool drink. The spa room is finished with fragrant plants and a flat-screen television for a spa-like experience.

Open-plan living spaces offers avant-garde styling and contemporary verve. With plush fabrics, accents of teal and charcoal and a modern fireplace along with sublime views, this is a memory-making abode. The open kitchen-dining offers sociable living, with a hanging chair and vibrant, bold art choices.

Each of the well-proportioned bedrooms has its own accents of colour and unique touches, along with hotel-quality linen and unadulterated serenity. With a building-length balcony, guests can simply wander out for morning coffee and enjoy the views.

Villa Danika ticks every style box while offering a warmly inviting home-like experience, displaying impeccable attention to detail and a wonderfully green setting close to the beautiful Kvarner coastline.

Situated at the foot of the Ucka mountain, this stunning home is 12 km south-west of Rijeka, and provides an ideal base to enjoy northern Croatia and the Slovenian borders.

One of Croatia’s best-kept secrets, Ucka Nature Park, hosts 160km² of mountains and green open plateaux. It is a beautifully remote spot and on clear days, Vojak (1401m), its highest peak, offers sublime views of the Italian Alps and the Bay of Trieste in neighbouring Italy.
The beautiful city of Opatija is known for its elegant style and sea views. The ‘lungomare’ is the 12km seaside promenade, constructed in 1889, which stretches all the way to Lovran, winding its way past the belle-epoque villas that nod to the town’s glamorous past as being holiday choice to the Austro-Hungarian elite. It is a vibrant place brimming with history and the charm of a bygone era.

Rijeka (meaning river in Croatian), is a mix of Italian, Austrian and Croatian influence. Rijeka has a major harbour and offers attractions from a top-notch contemporary art museum to a stately palace from the Habsburg days. The Korzo is the main pedestrianised sea-front street which is a buzzing mix of shops, eateries and symbolic landmarks.

Region

Opatija is a picturesque coastal resort nestled on the northeastern shores of the Adriatic Sea. A charming destination, perfect for those seeking relaxation, elegance, and natural beauty. Opatija's history is rich, its culture diverse, and its scenery breathtaking.

Opatija is a treasure trove of architectural and cultural heritage. Strolling through its streets, you'll encounter a mix of architectural styles, from the grandeur of Austro-Hungarian to the charm of Belle Époque. The town's historical past is brought to life in its iconic landmarks, such as Villa Angiolina, an elegant 19th-century villa that now houses the Croatian Museum of Tourism, and the
Church of St. James, a stunning neo-Romanesque structure.

In the 19th century Opatija gained prominence as a desirable retreat for European aristocracy. Opatija's mild climate and stunning natural surroundings made it a popular destination for the elite. The town was transformed into a sought-after spa and resort destination, and it became a fashionable resort for Europeans, known for its beautiful gardens, grand villas, and splendid promenade.

Opatija's appeal lies not only in its historical charm but also in its stunning natural surroundings. The town is surrounded by lush greenery, rolling hills, and the azure waters of the Adriatic Sea. The mild Mediterranean climate, characterised by warm summers and mild winters, is a key draw for visitors year-round. The town is also blessed with beautifully maintained parks and gardens, such as the Angiolina Park, which showcases a variety of plant species and sculptures, as well as the St.
James Park with its exotic plants and panoramic views of Kvarner Bay.

The 12-kilometer-long coastal promenade - the “Lungomare” - offers stunning vistas of the sea and surrounding islands, making it a favourite spot for leisurely walks. The Lungomare also connects Opatija to neighbouring towns Lovran and Ičići, allowing visitors to explore the beauty of the coastline at their own pace.

Opatija has a noteworthy coffee culture. You can savour your coffee or tea at one of the many cafés along the Lungomare, enjoying the beautiful views and the gentle sound of the sea. It's a cherished part of the Opatija experience.

Opatija hosts a wide range of cultural events throughout the year. From concerts and art exhibitions to festivals celebrating local traditions and international music, the town offers a vibrant cultural scene that caters to a variety of tastes. The Opatija Summer Stage, a popular open-air venue, hosts numerous events during the summer season, including classical concerts and theatre performances.
Water sports enthusiasts can enjoy sailing, diving, and snorkelling in the region’s crystal-clear waters. For hikers and nature lovers, the Učka Nature Park is just a short drive away, and offers rewarding hiking trails that lead to panoramic vistas.

While Opatija itself is a captivating destination, it also serves as an excellent base for day trips to other picturesque places in the region. You can explore nearby towns like Rijeka, Croatia's largest port city, or the historic hilltop town of Mošćenice. Additionally, the islands of Krk and Cres are easily accessible from Opatija and offer stunning landscapes, charming villages, and pristine beaches.

From its elegant architecture to its lush parks and gardens, from its cultural events to its diverse cuisine, Opatija offers a multifaceted experience for travellers. Whether you're seeking relaxation by the sea, cultural enrichment, or outdoor adventures, Opatija has it all. So, if you're looking for a charming and refined coastal getaway on the Adriatic, Opatija may be your perfect destination.

Reviews

  • Beautiful villa in a dreamlike quiet location

    on 24/10/2022

    Beautiful villa in a dreamlike quiet location, on the hillside with a magnificent view of the sea. Outdoor pool, sauna, whirlpool, billiards, table tennis, basketball left nothing to be desired. We were all thrilled. Our expectations were exceeded. We made beautiful hikes in the mountains and great walks by the sea. For bicycles rather not suitable. Too steep, no bike paths.

  • Great vacation
