San Rocco and Istrian hillside

On the western edge of this inspiring culinary region, family-operated San Rocco heritage boutique hotel is an authentic Istrian country estate, nurturing a typical, serene and graceful, atmosphere. Top gourmet destination, San Rocco feels like a grand prelude to an encounter with Istria's fascinating cultural heritage and some of the most unique wine cellars in the North of the peninsula.

In a completely preserved traditional setting, the former Master’s house, boškinjac stable (Istrian cattle) and tools shed have been carefully refurbished in the early 2000’s to include a variety of contemporary luxuries. In the picturesque village of Brtonigla, family Fernetich treasured much more than just the architecture: most of the vegetables served here come from their organic gardens, their San Rocco olive oil is listed as one of the world’s best olive oils in Flos Olei, and their signature is Cavallier wine vinegar, matured in oak barrels for 20 years. Crowning their efforts, San Rocco has repeatedly been voted as the best boutique hotel in Croatia for four years in a row.
Recognized by the Jeunes Restaurateurs d'Europe association, San Rocco is simply a whole lot of special, a wholesome Istrian experience enticing gourmet connoisseurs and enthusiasts to mark Istria on the world gastro map.
