Villa Countryhouse Pijevci


In the past roosters (Croatian: „pijevci“) embellished the top of almost every house of the Varaždin area. They were more than just decorations; they were symbols of vigilance and good fortune.

In the „Pijevci“ estate people bred roosters in the past. They were a source of income and prosperity for the today’s owners’ ancestors.

The times have changed, roosters have been replaced by alarm clocks, the crowing has stopped. All that is left is a red-brick rooster high on the roof as a memory of the times when roosters’ crowing could be heard from here.

Today the estate is a true oasis of hedonism, pleasure and enjoyment for body and soul. The estate consists of two houses and a special SPA zone, inviting you to indulge yourself. The houses’ interior decoration has created a true harmony. Antique furniture has been completed with numerous creative objects made by the owners. Interesting details and old pictures tell you about the history and the culture of this area.

The SPA house smells of immortelle, lemon balm and lavender, grown by the owners in their „House of the Magic Herbs“ („Kuća magične trave“).

However, the benefits that you are presented with do not stop here; all the products which are at your disposal are certified and of high quality.

The forests that surround the Countryhouse Pijevci hide delicious truffles, inviting you to take a walk, experience adventure. Your hosts will gladly organize a truffle hunt just for you and prepare delicious delicacies for you afterwards!

Novi Marof is a beautiful town full of interesting corners; spending your holiday at the Countryhouse Pijevci will give you strength for new life’s challenges.
