Hotel Overview

Sense of place

Meneghetti Wine Hotel is surrounded by scenic, untouched landscapes of meadows, vineyards, olive groves and centuries-old cypress trees, not far from the historic town of Bale and the Adriatic coast. 

Rooms at Meneghetti Wine Hotel

There are stylish rooms, suites and residences (maisonettes) which have their own terrace and garden. The villas (and some of the maisonettes), come with private pools, guaranteeing privacy and seclusion.

They have plenty of character and feature white stone walls, shuttered windows, exposed beams, wooden floors, antique furnishings, cosy fireplaces and colourful local artworks, alongside stylish bathrooms and beautiful views over the vineyards or olive groves surrounding the hotel. Special touches include homemade chocolates.

Food & drink

The food and drink is exemplary here – dine on gourmet seasonal Mediterranean dishes that showcase local ingredients, including Istrian prosciutto, goats cheese, fresh seafood, truffles (which have been a delicacy since Roman times) and the estate’s own olive oil, and you can wash it all down with Meneghetti’s own red and white vintages as you look out over the vineyards they’ve come from. We recommend visiting the wine cellar to find out more about them.


Indulge in a massage or visit the sauna, enjoy a swim in one of the indoor and outdoor pools, and soak up the sun poolside, surrounded by vineyards and ancient oak trees. The manicured gardens are stunning and worth strolling around.

Activities at Meneghetti Wine Hotel

It is mandatory to indulge in food and wine tours while you're here, visiting pretty villages and irresistible vineyards. Visit the Meneghetti Winery, which produces more than 100,000 bottles of first-class wine a year, for a tour and a tasting.

Take the complimentary shuttle to the beach less than 2km away, which has sunbeds reserved just for guests. Explore the bucolic surroundings by going horse riding, hiking or biking, and visit the medieval town of Bale, which is one of Croatia’s hidden gems, with its picturesque winding cobbled streets and historic houses and churches, as well as a thriving gastronomic and arty scene and beaches not far away, where you can swim and dive in pristine waters. Rovinj is also well worth seeing.

At the end of the day, relax on the terrace with another glass of wine or two, cooled by sea breezes from the Adriatic.
