La casa di Matiki from Zminj the best bed & breakfast in Croatia according to TripAdvisor

first_imgAccording to the criteria of the TripAdvisor portal (service, position, price-quality ratio, cleanliness and even sleep quality) La casa di Matiki, a facility in the Municipality of Žminj, was named the best Bead & breakfast in Croatia in 2019. Namely, the owner offers guests a complete experience of nature and life in it; domestic animals, homemade bread, the possibility of sleeping on hay, imaginative and rich breakfast prepared from local ingredients, great outdoor chess, an authentic experience of an old Istrian farm, as well as a swimming pool in the vineyard and olive grove. It is a place where guests become friends, and Mrs. Sonja dedicates herself to them for the entire stay.  ANDREW ALEY, TRIPADVISOR: ONLINE BOOKING SHOULD BE SIMPLIFIED AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE, BECAUSE AT THE CURRENTLY ONLY 20 PERCENT OF CLIENTS BOOK SERVICES OUTSIDE THE HOTEL OVER THE INTERNET The guest must feel royal, says Glavić, whose staff greets guests every morning with a smile and a fragrant breakfast, and the imperative is original, own and local Žminj products. The evenings offer a view of the magnificent starry sky, with plenty of peace and quiet. Chickens, donkeys, dogs and cats are an indispensable part of life in Casa Matika, a place that laid the foundations in 1995, and in 1997 the first guests came, so it can be rightly said that Mrs. Sonja is a pioneer of this type of offer in the heart of Istria.  This is the fifth year that Trip Advisor ranks Mati Mati among the 25 best Bed & Breakfasts in Croatia, and in 2019 she will be on the throne.center_img RELATED NEWS: My dream was to host people from all over the world, and the dream came true, says Mrs. Sonja Glavić, owner of La casa di Matiki. And her guests are domesticated to such an extent that, she says jokingly, sometimes she feels like a guest herself and considers her guests the hosts.  See the list of TOP 25 best bed & breakfast facilities in Croatia according to TripAdvisor HERElast_img read more

The Liverpool striker picked up the prize that recognizes the best African player of the year 2019 in Hurghada (Egypt) on Tuesday, being ahead of the vote of his partner in Liverpool, the Egyptian Mohamed Salah, and Riyad Mahrez, Algerian attacker of the City.

Interestingly, before Salah, Mahrez was the CAF Golden Ball in 2016.All CAF awards Mané was the big favorite to win the award after his spectacular season. He won the Champions League with Liverpool, he was top scorer of the Premier, in which he has only lost one match in all of 2019, he was a finalist in the African Cup with his selection, and he was fourth in the 2019 Ballon d’Or vote awards France Football magazine. With this track record it was difficult to assume that Salah, who won the same awards in Liverpool as he did but whose role in the Africa Cup left much to be desired, and Mahrez, who won the Africa Cup with Algeria and the English triplet with the City (although without such a prominent role in their club), they could face it.
