Welcome to Heart of Croatia...


...where the holiday of your dreams may be waiting for you! Here, in the beautiful Croatian peninsula of Istria, there is an old traditional stone house, set in beautiful, unspoilt countryside, but only minutes from the clear waters of the sea and its historic resorts. You can make Butterfly House your home while you rest, or explore, or you can join us for one of our special holidays, discovering your creativity and inner peace through art, circle dancing, and connecting with yourself and others.

Heart-shaped Istria is a fascinating and mysterious place. Here in its own rugged heart is a quiet land which time almost seems to have forgotten, even though signs of man's presence over millenia are scattered across the landscape. You will return from this serenity deeply refreshed in heart and soul.




"I have fallen in love with Croatia, with Istria, with the butterfly house… Everything has been wonderful - the weather, the surroundings, the people, the food"… Anne Parry, Berks

"Thank you so much for sharing your beautiful country & house with us. We have had a fantastic holiday - the weather has been amazing and we have visited beautiful areas - particularly liked Motovun, Hum and Rovinj. Great meals in the Skipper restaurant in Poreč (lovely fish). Everyone very friendly; a wonderful place"... David, Marion, Laura & Kate S, Wiltshire

"Not only a beautiful, comfortable place to stay, especially with views from every side, but also a wonderful springboard for lots of exploring. We loved the hilltop towns we visited, swimming in the sea at Porec, Rovinj and Materada, going deep into impressive caves and walking and cycling"...Jenny, August 2015.
