Fodor's Expert Review Bolara 60 Guesthouse

Bolara 60, Grožnjan, Istarska, Croatia Fodor's Choice

In a tiny village just below Grožnjan, you'll find Bolara 60, a lovingly restored 18th-century stone farmhouse within peaceful rolling hills, vineyards, and olive groves. Anna and Matthew thoughtfully attend to every cozy detail with a high, creative standard— from the vintage doorknobs to the wisteria-covered pergola, outdoor pizza oven, cozy open kitchen, antique beds with fine linens, bikes and boots to ramble with, and produce picked fresh from the garden. Anna's a chef, cooking teacher, food writer, and culinary anthropologist with many years working with Alice Waters to draw on, so anything she makes is amazing. But her breakfasts are truly fantastic, especially when eaten in the warmth of her open kitchen, with almost everything on the table made from ingredients grown right on the farm. And if they don't grow it, they know the best farmer, grower, or producer who does. This is a special culinary adventure not to be missed.
