About the Homestay
We are a couple who moved from busy urban life in London to live up here in the mountains of National Park Risnjak in the beautiful rural village of Crni Lug. We enjoy this location due to its peacefulness, nature and wildlife. We rescued a Golden Retriever (Patcha), White Labrador (Snowy) and Tigar the cat and they love it here too.
We live in a lovely, authentic and spacious traditional mountain family house built in 1930tees and are mostly busy with its ongoing restorations, the house upkeep and the gardening. We enjoy meeting our guests who venture out to explore our location and catering for them. In spare time we enjoy hiking, walking, cycling and exploring the beautiful Adriatic coast nearby.

We had the use of a full kitchen in the apartment and dining area. There was a balcony off the main double bedroom. It’s a very small village with one hotel, one small store and one church. We were lucky enough to be invited to a community party at the school and that was a load of fun. Kevin and Ana are very friendly and wanted to
Make our stay as comfortable as possible.
