    Default “Kucica” Croatian cottage


    kucica” in croatian means “small house.” this quaint cottage belongs to iva and vanja and is located in zagorje, croatia (15 miles from the capital of zagreb). the area is known for its preserved idyllic nature, rivers, old castles, and as the excavation site of a 100,000 year old neanderthal man (trivia!). the cottage itself is a traditional wooden cottage which is about 100 years old, but was moved to this location around 20-30 years ago. it was love at first sight when iva and vanja first discovered the cottage, but it was in poor shape and needed some tlc. throughout their renovations the goal was to preserve and respect as much of the original beauty as possible

    The old sewing machine from an antique shop was turned into writing table.









    The Cottage is situated on a small hill, over seeing gentle nature (orchard, vineyard and forest).

    The favorite way to relax on weekends is preparing barbecue and old Croatian peasant recipes.

    The table for kids – made of wood – in the protective shade of an old oak.

    I actually really like the juxtaposition of the bright colors with the rustic cottage. Looks like a great place to take a long nap on a summer evening.
