Staff are terrific. The son speaks English well. He was very accommodating of our cycle touring gear. The welcome drink was very nice. Property is fantastic.
A little out of town and hard to find. There were some dogs penned in the yard that barked a lot.

Notes Actions
OMG hardest 46km ever with a cumulative gain of approximately 1100m or 1200m plus headwind. Highlights (aside from the climbing and headwind) included the crazy tall smoke stack at Plomin, and the Kršan castle.
A while back Brent had talked with some Kiwis who had been touring in Croatia earlier in the summer. They said Istria was great cycling (it is) and they said camping here is hideously expensive (it is). We may end up doing less camping than I would like simply because of the cost difference. Camping in our tent averages about $60CAD. Tonight and tomorrow we're staying in an enormous studio apartment for $52CAD per night. Craziness.
