Stone House Orsera


This romantic stone house is located on top of the hill of the old town of Vrsar in Istria, Croatia. Next to the castle – the so-called Kaštel, with a view of Učka, the highest mountain in Istria. Only 50 metres from a lookout point with a beautiful view of the sea and the Vrsar archipelago. Only 200 m from the beach, a restaurant, and a children’s playground.

Stone house design – Mediterranean

The little stone house in the old town core with small rooms and outdated window shutters became a vacation haven after being redecorated.


The space inside the holiday house has been opened by removing the main partition in the space. When choosing the interior equipment we searched for modern shapes which would bring in the spirit of past and tradition at the same time. The main idea of the interior decoration is a blend of the old and the new. The materials used assert the Mediterranean interior.

The central space of the ground floor is occupied by a masonry island kitchen made of natural materials – Istrian stone and oak solid wood. The wall is made as a drywall, and the counter is made of kirmenjak stone. There are some masonry elements, which is a characteristic of the local ambiance. A part of the space is also a bench, which continues into an open modernly designed fireplace, and a niche for firewood. Masonry stairs are finished to imitate a special type of processed stone (štokani kamen). The rooms are featured with modern equipment combined with elements of antique furniture. The floor is made of bleached oak wood to make the space looked brighter because of small windows.

The first floor has two bedrooms and a Mediterranean bathroom.


The stone terrace of the house and furniture made of solid teak wood allow you to spend your leisure time outdoors. Mediterranean herbs, bay leaves, lavender, passion flower, lemon and olive trees give the house an intimate atmosphere in the old town core.
