      Savudrija is the oldest lighthouse on the Adriatic, built in 1818. It is also the most northern Croatian lighthouse, situated right next to Slovenian border and only 56 km south of Italian town Trieste.

      Details of the lighthouse:
      Closest tourist center and famous destination for tennis lovers - Umag, is situated only 9 km away. The lighthouse also has a good traffic connection with the surrounding area. Its light signal can be seen from up to 17 NM or 32 kilometers distance, its building is 36 meters tall and there is a keeper living inside it.

      Guests have one 4-bed apartment at their disposal. The sea is 30 meters away and there are many restaurants near the facility. The town Savudrija is generally known for its excellent fish and proscuttio, which is here dried in a special way so guests who stay at the lighthouse can choose between wine cellars that serve traditional Istrian dishes.

      The lighthouse has a fenced garden with Mediterranean plants characteristic for this green part of Istria. There are stony beaches and many sport facilities around (tennis courts, football, handball, and basketball playgrounds, cycling and jogging tracks)

      There are 30 meters of lush green garden with Mediterranean plants between the lighthouse and the stony beach in front of it. Favorable winds and mild sea currents are excellent for sea sports like windsurfing, and the clear sea and its clear bottom is wonderful for diving.

      Interesting to know:
      According to available information and local stories, the lighthouse Savudrija was built by count Meternich in 1818 for a beautiful Croatian noble woman in whom he fell in love at a Viennese ball. Unfortunately, the owners never got the chance to live together in the building: the noble woman died on the very day the lighthouse was finished and count Meternich never visited it again.

        Savudrija lighthouse
        The lighthouse is very close to the beach which was very nice and quiet. Next to the lighthouse they have huge camp ground which we used for our morning and night walks. Although there were many people at the camp the noise was none existent. We were very surprised to have such a nice and calm vacation having the camp next door. The lighthouse tower is impressive. Mario, the lighthouse keeper, was accommodating and helpful. Mario’s mom was polite and soft spoken.
        Although the house has great potential, I have to admit the potential has not been met. For the price and stars that apartment is holding there were many things missing such are: - bathrooms have no hooks for hanging towels, no hairdryer: the tub has no shower curtains so we always had a flood in the bathroom while showering. There is no living room. The bedrooms are very outdated and ,I have to say, I don’t mind old furniture but I do mind sleeping on an old mattress which provided no support. Needless to say, on this vacation as the days went by we were more tired from simple lack of sleep due to the bed and pillows. The kitchen is lacking sufficient cutlery. The chef knives were so dull that I could not cut the bread nor onion. I asked Mario to give me a knife sharpener , he brought another set of knives in stead which were again dull. Cutting board is missing. I did not want to cut our food on the table cloth so first trip to the store I bought one and left it in the apartment. After few days of staying in Savudrija lighthouse I talked to the other vacationing couple who were not happy with their apartment. They did not sleep good as well. I am very unhappy that I had payed good money and I feel robbed due to lack of quality of this accommodation. I am not sure how they received 3 stars. Maybe the owners should look into updating the place. They will lose the tourists. I , for one, will not go back.
