The ranch resort is Croatia's premier horseback riding retreat destination that will appeal to those seeking eco-friendly holiday resort.

Our restaurant serves seasonal food, sourced either from the nature or grown as part of our community-based projects. Our custom designed nature adventures can be enjoyed by the whole family, groups or individuals. During warm months aside from horse activities suitable both for grown-ups and children alike, we offer canoe trips, hiking, trekking, mountain biking and caving.

Those seeking retreat and calmness can enjoy a good book from our library in the shade of our Secret Garden trees. During winter time, soaking in the fireplace heated jacuzzi, while sipping a glass of champagne is unforgettable experience. Add to that thick feather beds, flannel linens and woodstoves that keep our mountain lodges cozy you get a perfect place for your snow-filled vacation.
