Heritage Hotel Angelo d’Oro is a gorgeous boutique bed and breakfast, oozing charm and authenticity, located in the heart of Rovinj, a breathtakingly beautiful, centuries-old seaside town on the Istrian peninsula in north west Croatia.
Highly revered and well-known to much of Europe, Rovinj is a star attraction on the Istrian coast, less familiar perhaps to UK holidaymakers who are really missing out on a fantastic travel destination, just a short flight away. Ornate and intensely captivating, the Old Town of this picturesque Croatian fishing port stands on a headland: a cluster of higgledy-piggledy, brightly coloured buildings, all jostling for position, perched on the very edge of the Adriatic sea, almost tumbling into the crystal clear waters. From their midst a tall church tower rises up dominating the skyline; strikingly beautiful by day against the vivid blue Mediterranean Sea and endless Croatian sky, and at night, all lit up, just magical!
Istria is Croatia’s gastronomic capital and visitors can enjoy wine tasting tours, olive grove excursions and sample the region’s fantastic food in Rovinj’s superb restaurants; delicious truffles, fresh olive oil and crisp white wine; exquisite dining with the waves lapping at your feet and the sun setting before your eyes.
A few steps from the sea, tucked away down a quiet cobbled street in the pedestrianised centre of Rovinj, Angelo d’Oro’s elegant rich ochre façade warmly greets you as you arrive by golf buggy! Already excited and feeling rather special having been collected from the hotel car parking facility on the edge of town and whisked through the streets, the hotel is every bit as lovely as anticipated. Historical elements with up to date conveniences, a relaxed, unpretentious atmosphere and friendly helpful staff ensure a unique and comfortable stay with a true taste of Croatian hospitality.
Angelo d’Oro boutique bed and breakfast is housed in one of the most beautiful and elegant buildings in the historic centre of Rovinj, once a Bishop’s Palace in the 17th Century. Many ornate and interesting features still remain inside: a stunning spiral staircase leads up to a Romanesque style balcony on the top floor with sea views across the bay; vintage ceiling murals, exposed beams, centuries-old stone walls and the original wine cellar, which has an interesting back story to it.
Heritage Angelo d’Oro’s signature style is one of earthy tones and natural materials, with carefully chosen pieces of restored antique furniture further enhancing the architectural features – very much in keeping with the old style character of the property.
There is a bar and comfortable lounge area where you can enjoy a drink in the evening and a beautifully dressed dining hall with quirky, castle-like stone walls. Every room is unique in design and distinctive in character, owing to the architectural layout of the original building. Some of the bedrooms have wonderful sea views.
Tucked away, the rear walled courtyard contains a fabulous secret garden; an unexpected oasis of flowers, fresh air and serenity. In the morning, breakfast is served under sail canopies extended between the historic stone walls. In the afternoon, it is a place to catch your breath and relax reading a good book. At night the secret garden turns into a lounge bar where guests, under the starlit sky, can have a quick drink or sample wines from a small but well-stocked wine cellar. It is an excellent place to start or finish your evening.
Rovinj is a destination that won’t disappoint and nor will Angelo d’Oro, warm-hearted, gracious and comfortable accommodation, Angelo d’Oro evokes an atmosphere of times past and a romantic cherished way of life. If Rovinj is the crowning glory of Istria, then Angelo d’Oro is the very precious jewel at it’s heart.
