Part village, all luxury—San Canzian is a collection of historic stone and terracotta-tiled buildings on gorgeous Istria. Nestled within olive groves and vineyards—and only a short stroll from the turquoise shallows of the Adriatic—this is a retreat into Croatia’s countryside with every comfort catered for.
Why We Love it
This is the Croatian stay for wine lovers—the talented sommelier will have you trying something intriguing from the over 600 label-strong cellar.
There’s a strong focus on the food in the hotel, so much so that it’s woven into the experiences available. Embark on a truffle hunt in the forest, learn about Istrian winemaking techniques, or decamp to the olives groves for an olive oil-making demo.
Dominating the medieval hamlet of Mužolini Donji, San Canzian is a collection of gorgeously renovated traditional stone buildings blending rusticity with contemporary panache. It’s sited in a valley silvery with olive groves and blessed with gorgeous sea views.
The neutral-toned interiors are balanced by the warmth and textures of natural elements—woven reed rugs, soft wool throws, sanded wood floors. The brushed concrete bathrooms are minimal and modern while your suite’s covered balcony is your morning coffee nook while gazing out at the pretty landscape beyond. If you haven’t departed on a truffle hunt into the woods, the loungers by the sizeable infinity pool also capitalize on the natural charms of this gorgeous corner of Croatia.
WHAT MAKES THIS HOTEL UNIQUE?
In a location known for its wine production, it seems only correct that San Canzian should have one of the country’s best wine cellars. The sommelier is on hand to suggest ideal wine pairings from the over 600 labels available when you’re menu-dawdling at the excellent on-site restaurant.
In the summer, it’s hard not to want to spend your entire stay by the pool, negroni in hand. Understanding that, the hotel will serve you dinner poolside if desired.
