SUMMER STILL LASTS IN ROVINJ! LOOK INTO THIS BEAUTIFUL ACCOMMODATION

The summer holidays, to our regret, are over. The school year has already begun, offices are slowly being refilled for those returning from vacations and the city is slowly starting to breathe autumn lungs. However, that does not mean that the rest and enjoyment has come to an end.

The most charming boutique hotel in Rovinj is located in Garzotto Street

This small hotel in Rovinj was also noticed by the Guardian, and Conde Nast Traveler put it on its list of recommendations. So who are we to say that The Melegran is not one of the best choices for accommodation if you find yourself in Rovinj? The owners of this Rovinj hotel say that their story is very simple – they simply adore Rovinj. They even got married there. Pula-based Lea Lazarić Calvert, an investment banker, and Adrian Calvert, an Australian lawyer, entrepreneur and venture investor, met during their studies, and decided to start a hotel after visiting Rovinj, where they got married and simply fell in love.

 

Design Hotel The Melegran is located in the Old Town, in a 19th-century stone building on Garzotto Street. It contains 13 accommodation units, each of which is different from the other, but equally charismatic, charming and vibrant. Each room “has its own story”, and guests are offered the opportunity to share their own story using a typewriter! They have also recently added a lounge room, which guests can access at any time, for example after a walk around the city, to read a book, socialize or bingeal their favorite Netflix series.

But the most important thing is that The Melegran has some of the most charming rooms in Rovinj. It is obvious that in this informal, yet luxurious boutique hotel, every detail was taken care of. To be optimistic, cheerful, relaxed. Colors, textures, decoration, lighting signed by designer Dean Skira, neon signs Melegran in the green wall, ambient lighting in the room, Cowshed cosmetics, matt gold showers, radio / dock for iPhone designed in the form of a small Marshall amplifier, beds one of the most comfortable in Croatia… We do not hesitate to say that this hotel is even a sufficient reason to visit Rovinj, and then enjoy this Istrian pearl, and maybe fall in love with it, just like Lee and Adrian.

flash! If you want to stay in this adorable hotel, there is currently a great promotion for local guests, as part of which you can realize a 50% discount by entering the code PUTUJEMDOMA when booking on the hotel’s website. The promotion is valid until May 15, and can be used by guests who plan to stay at The Melegran for two or more nights. For those who will stay only one night, the discount is 30%

Citizen Femme – An Insider Guide to Rovinj, Croatia’s Istrian Coast

We go inside Rovinj with Lea, owner of the area’s newest Independent hotel ‘The Melegran’ (https://melegran.com/) (literally translating to “pomegranate”). Born to Croatian parents, Lea spent her childhood holidays growing up along the Istrian Coast. She knows the region like the back of hand – her grandfather was Mayor of Pula during the time of Tito, and Lea and her husband not only got married in Rovinj, but they also built a house there and then went on to create The Melegran – their laidback, chic bolthole in the old town.

The Times – Best Hotels To Stay In

Even though Rovinj is in Croatia, this underappreciated Istrian port is closer to Venice than to Zagreb or Dubrovnik — and it shows via clustered, pastel-shade houses and piazzas. A boutique hotel in the old town’s web of cobbled lanes, the Melegran makes an ideal base, in walking distance of harbour-front fish restaurants and Mulini’s pleasant, pebbly shore. Book the chic duplex suite for its sea-view terrace and consider signing up for guided truffle hunts, wine tours or island-hopping on speedboat trips.

Featured in CNTraveller: ISTRIA, CROATIA’S RECLUSIVE NORTH COAST

This opened in August 2018, its owners a couple from Notting Hill – Adrian and his wife Lea, whose grandfather was once mayor of Pula, so there are plenty of local tales to be told. It’s right in the centre of the old town, with terrace views over the Adriatic, and bright rooms – all individually designed, with various shades of pink, swimming-pool fabrics, tropical wallpaper and the occasional typewriter – fitted neatly in beneath the beamed ceilings. There’s even a little lounge bar for sampling the local wines. (The hotel name, in case you’re wondering, translates as pomegranate.)

Croatia’s horizons stretch a whole lot further than Dubrovnik and the hands-in-the-air beach-party season. The north-western peninsula of Istriais now regarded as a Tuscan-style sensation stocked with fresh seafood, snuffled truffles and quite brilliant wine. Plenty of which ends up on the tables in Rovinj, the coastal citadel that’s every bit as dramatic as Saint-Malo, with the happenchance street theatre of a Fellini film. But while large hotels rise along the shore, the old town has lacked a smart, small-scale base from which to explore the cobblestoned lanes.
