San Canzian Hotel & Residences

The charm of medieval Istria meets pared back luxury in the heart of Croatia

The art and soul of old Istria is alive in the San Canzian Hotel & Residences. Perched up on the Croatian peninsula near Buje in the medieval village of Mužolini Donji, echoes of its 14th-century past can be felt in the cool, contemporary design of the 24 rooms, suites and villa.  

Surrounded by shady olive groves, gardens and the celebrated vineyards of San Canzian, you can spend your days in the perfect spot by the infinity pool, stretched out in the sauna and relax zone, or exploring the nearby hilltop villages. Just a short stroll from San Canzian Village & Hotel a charming historical site of church ruins gives you an intriguing glimpse into Istria’s spiritual heritage.

If you can tear yourself away from your luxurious room, the surrounding San Canzian countryside is made for biking and hiking. You could also take your taste buds on an adventure in daily award-winning olive oil tastings or by joining a truffle hunting expedition in the nearby forests. 


Enjoy your stay!

Leopold Botteri Independent Minds

Independent Minds: Leopold Botteri

The unmistakably Mediterranean scent of olive trees hangs in the air at San Canzian Hotel & Residences, where hints of co-owner Leopold Botteri’s history as an olive oil producer ooze from the surrounding groves, vineyards, and bouquet of local herbs presented to guests on arrival at this 14th-century Istrian estate. Originally purchased as a dream holiday home for Botteri and his friends, San Canzian immerses visitors in the neighbourly feel of its Medieval village past and the charm of Croatian country life.

Spa

A temple to tranquillity, stepping inside the spa at San Canzian feels a little like going back in time. The candlelit pool at its heart harks back to the spa baths of ancient Rome – as do the revitalising hot and cold foot baths, for hopping between. But the Finnish sauna is a calming, contemporary space. Reserve one of the treatment rooms and choose from a curated spa menu that celebrates this corner of Istria, now and then – from massages using cold-pressed olive oil from the hotel’s grove, to the signature ‘Scent of the Mediterranean’ that blends mint, grape seeds and soothing shea butter.
