Hospitality and delicious local cuisine

Way back in 1895 the HIŠA ROBIDA was the largest facility on the Ćetnar (Katinara), as we locals call it – the bottom of Črni Kal. It was an important point on the way from the coast to the country’s inland. Even then, the house consisted of the village pub, the grocery store, and a post office. After the war the restaurant was best known for its excellent sausages, prosciutto and delicious homemade cuisine, led by our grandparents Olga and Slavko Žerjul. For many years a major part of the house was empty and

deserted until there were some suggestions from Slavko’s grandson Žiga. After that, Slavko’s graddaughter Tina transferred some ideas to paper. Shortly afterwards the efforts were fruitful because of the harmony of the family Vatovec and grandma Olga. The Istrian stone house was completely renovated in July 2018 into a hostel or Guest House Hiša Robida where we want to offer our guests a higher level of quality of service.

Why »Robida (BlackBerry)«?

Blackberry shrubs advantageously thrive on Karst’s edge and bring us tasty fruits at the same time. Likewise, we want to welcome every guest, in the pleasant ambience of the House Robida.


Istrian countryside. Karst edge. The forest.

We designed the rooms with a thought of the Istrian countryside and in the memory of our grandparents, the mighty walls of the Karst edge and the forest above it, that’s why every room is different and special. The 1st floor has five comfortable rooms with a unique designed bathroom. There’s a kitchen corner with a refrigerator and microwave oven for the preparation of tea or warm milk for your children. The attic floor consists of six rooms with shared bathroom and toilet, a room with shared beds (5x) and five smaller double-bed rooms. We can guarantee extremely comfortable beds.

Open terrace

Open terrace

Behind the house there is a hidden quiet place under the blue sky, surrounded by stone walls and green leaves of a wild vine. It’s ideal for breakfast or a glass of home-made wine with good company during the day or in the evening. 50m2 is just perfect for family reunions or business gatherings. The terrace is directly connected with the multi-purpose room, so both of them nicely complement each other.
