Dobreć is a small village with a population of less than 400. If you decide to stay in Villa Marone, you will probably meet a half of them and those encounters will be pleasant, because these are warm and friendly people and good hosts, who respect the privacy of their guests.

The village is located five kilometres away from Lovran and the sea, which is about a 6-minute ride. South to the village there are the picturesque Liganj and Tuliševica, to the south-west we have Lovranska DragaOprič and Ičići to the north-east and Poljaneto the north. If you get a chance, visit all these locations.

Dobreć is located only 9 kilometres away from the pearl of Croatian tourism, the “old lady” Opatija, which became famous for health tourism back in the time of the Austro-Hungarian Empire.

The house itself is located at an altitude of 360 m above sea level, under steep slopes of the mountain of Učka and its nature park. Its terrace boasts a magnificent view of the mountains of Gorski kotar, the city of Rijeka and the islands of Krk and Cres. This is the meeting point of the sea and mountain climate and vegetation.

Distance from the restaurant: 5 km; distance from the shop: 1,3 km.


The climate is characterized by mild summers and winters. The characteristic of the micro-location is that the daily temperature range is affected by the wind which starts to blow from the mountain in early evening and cools the slope.


Once you get to Dobreć, it is difficult to name all the outdoor activities you can spend your free time doing. We will only mention the most basic ones, such as cycling and mountaineering; the Učka Nature Park and its many trails are nearby. You can spend your time mountaineering, trekking, collecting medicinal herbs, fruit berries and mushrooms, taking photos, hand gliding, mountain climbing, paragliding. In other words, Villa Marone could be your starting point for a myriad of sports and other adventures, available only a 10-minute ride away.


The sea, which is located a few minutes’ ride away from Dobreć, is a story in itself. We suggest boat excursions, diving, parasailing or the good old lounging on one of many beaches.
