The fabulous Villa Benke is designed as three superb apartments over two floors. With four bedrooms in total, sleeping eight guests, one apartment has a sofa bed so you could actually squeeze another two guests in if required. The villa would suit an extended family wanting a little space of their own or a group of friends. It is so contemporary making fantastic use of glass. The villa is situated on an extraordinary raised plot in Matulji, overlooking the wonderful coastline.
Matulji is a lovely, charming, quiet resort very close to Opatija and Istrian peninsula. Opatija is a serene seaside Croatian gem on the Kvarner Gulf, full of magnificent Mediterranean restaurants, fabulous beaches, majestic fountains and cultural jewels.
Villa Benke occupies such an amazing, sunny position with the most breathtaking views. It is a fantastic choice of accommodation. Each of the apartments is chic and stylish with incredible vistas and fabulous, modern furnishings.
On the ground floor, the massive 70 sqm open-plan living, dining and kitchen space with a modern fireplace will definitely impress. It is incredibly light and airy with full walls of glass. The kitchen is sleek and just perfect. There is a twin bedroom with a separate, exquisite shower room and an awesome king bedroom with a dressing room and stunning bathroom. You can laze in the bath with a glass of fizz and admire the spectacular views! It is spectacular. You will feel so indulged! The living room and master bedroom open directly to the wonderful terrace, garden and pool.
On the upper floor, which can be reached from an external staircase, you have the remaining two apartments. Both are exquisite. One apartment has a gorgeous living space with a wonderful sofa bed, dining, streamlined kitchen, panoramic windows, a delightful terrace and a superb double bedroom with a massive, comfortable bed and ensuite shower room. The remaining apartment also has a glorious living, dining and kitchen space, double bedroom, a sparkling bathroom and its own brilliant furnished terrace.
The outside space will be shared by the holiday group. The pool is lovely with atmospheric mood lighting at night time. The outdoor dining and lounge furniture are superb, and there is a barbecue to enjoy alfresco dining. This really is a luxurious villa with incredible style and comfort.

In a country full of magnificent coastal gems, Opatija still manages to stand out, shimmering and shining at every turn. Opatija is the Croatian word for abbey, and although the abbey is no longer standing, the incredible Church of St Jacob is a jewel that cannot be missed. Renaissance, Venetian, Gothic, ornate Secession, Baroque, Classicism and Alpine Baroque architecture blends to make this a superb city to walk around. You can easily understand why Opatija has been one of the most popular Croatian cities for sightseeing since the 19th century. The Croatian Walk of Fame makes for an interesting stroll, paying respect to the tennis legend Goran Ivanisevic as well as other famous Croatians. The most famous statue in Opatija is the ‘Girl with a Seagull’. The original now stands in the Croatian Museum of Tourism, but the seaside replacement makes a good photo opportunity. The beautiful promenade stretches for 12km between Volosko and Lovran. The two beloved fountains are dedicated to Helios and Selena, mythical Greek deities of the sun and the moon.
Rijeka is 12km to the west of the villa. It is Croatia’s third largest city and is a bustling blend of Italianate Habsburg grandeur, a busy port and touristic carnival city. You will discover charm, culture, good nightlife and Croatia’s most colourful carnival. Korzo, Rijeka’s busy promenade is wonderful for a stroll, and the lively central market and fish market are hubs of activity. The fish market building is decorated with sculptures of sea creatures, looking almost like a temple of fish. Just next to the fish market you can buy fruit and vegetables at the central market. Rijeka’s City Tower was built in the middle ages. The passage under the tower connects Korzo with the charming Old Town. Rijeka tunnel is among the most recent of the town's attractions. It was built in 1939-1942 by Italians for military purposes. Trsat Castle is very interesting to visit and has a wonderful panorama. There are Blue Flag beaches and plenty of watersports. Ploce Beach is the most popular of the beaches in the north of the city.
The village of Kastav, a charming medieval village north of Rijeka, is perfect for walks and a pleasant coffee or lunch. There are many art workshops and cultural events. South of Rijeka is Bakar which is built like an amphitheatre on a hill. The historical nucleus was declared a cultural monument in 1968. The pedestrian-only Old Town is full of narrow, steep streets, many connected with staircases. Grobnik Castle in Cavle village is among the best-preserved castles in the area.

Best Suited For: All Ages

Villa Benke is probably best suited to a group of friends or an extended family. One of the apartments has two bedrooms, and another has a double and a sofa bed, so if you have young children there is only one apartment that is really ideal. However, if you are visiting with grandparents or other families that want some space of their own, then the villa will be perfect.
There is plenty to do with children in this location. Rijeka is a busy town with lovely beaches. The Peek and Poke Computer Museum will be a real hit with ‘techy’ children. The collection spans decades and generations of technology, featuring many working and playable computers and games consoles. Older children might enjoy the Fox in a Box Escape Room in Rijeka. Challenging teamwork will be needed to escape the themed room. Happy Land is the biggest amusement park in Rijeka. It is divided into several sections, a large playroom, a bowling centre with six lanes, a games room with pool tables, air hockey, basketball, simulators and a LaserTag area. It is great fun if you want a change from the beach or the weather isn’t great.
Opatija’s Slatina Beach has the look of a lido with paved areas for sunbathing and steps into the sea. The terraces are semi-circular, which means the sea is lake-calm for swimming and great for families. The pine forest behind offers shade when the sun is too much.  There are so many beaches for children to enjoy and also many boat trips on offer to visit the islands or simply to swim, snorkel or dolphin watch.

  • 14 days in Opatija

    on 09/08/2022

    We spent 14 days in Opatija. Because the house consists of three apartments (2 for two people each on the upper floor and one for 4 people on the ground floor), everyone could also withdraw once. The view is fantastic and the landlady takes care of everything right away and is very accommodating. The house itself is in immaculate condition and everything is available. In the harbor of Volosko, by the way, you can find excellent restaurants and thus does not necessarily have to cook yourself.

  • Great Vacation

    on 16/08/2021

    The accommodation keeps what it promises. The view and the equipment are absolutely top. Everything was clean and well maintained. Despite the large group, everyone could stay in the sufficiently large apartments for themselves. Coming together in the garden and pool was a great vacation experience.

  • Would book again

    on 16/08/2020

    The house has 3 self-contained apartments, all great equipped and well thought out. The view is beautiful, the terrace and the pool invite you to relax. The whole complex is very well maintained, the landlords very nice, accommodating and helpful. We felt very comfortable and would book the house again immediately!
