We are Mark and Gilly. We are a British couple who have spent most of the last ten years living and working internationally. For the past few years we have been searching for our dream home in Europe. Having spent many family holidays in Slovenia, Croatia and Montenegro we were familiar with the region and knew this was a very special part of the world. In 2018 we found Međimurje County, in northern continental Croatia, and fell in love. This is a truly undiscovered region that rivals the most beautiful locations in Europe. We have, over the past two years developed our vision for Glamping Vila Trilogy and we look forward to welcoming you as guests, so you too can enjoy the beauty of this area.
Glamping Vila Trilogy
A first-choice provider of accommodation for visitors to Međimurje County, Glamping Vila Trilogy is situated in a beautiful location in the heart of continental Croatia. There is something unique in connecting with nature whilst, at the same time, being able to enjoy luxurious accommodation. Glamping Vila Trilogy delivers this balance; guests can immerse themselves in an idyllic lifestyle where they can enjoy outdoor living in an authentic natural setting, whilst staying in a boutique Lotus Belle glamping tent.
Glamping Vila Trilogy is located in beautiful Štrigova, offering a unique starting point to explore the area’s natural beauty. Štrigova is at the heart of the Međimurje wine road and is also an excellent base for cyclists wishing to enjoy the open countryside of the region.
Our philosophy is ‘live simply’, this doesn’t mean that we can’t enjoy the finer things in life; we seek to create an environment free of some of the complexity of modern living where our guests can ‘switch off’, and take the opportunity to reconnect with nature and the simple pleasures the natural world can provide.
The Vila Fairy
Vila is a fairy, a nymph, female, beautiful and with long blonde hair, she features in Croatian mythology. She can be found in three forms, living on land and in forests, a water nymph or as a cloud or air nymph. In the old days, Croatian folk venerated the vila by placing flowers, food and drink outside of caves where they believed the vila to live.
Glamping Vila Trilogy is a concept that embraces the three forms of the vila fairy: land & forest, water, and air. It is also a concept that, in its own way, venerates the vila fairy through the respect we have for our natural surroundings. Vila Trilogy recognises the magical power of the natural environment in Međimurje County and provides the discerning traveler with the opportunity to immerse themselves in the beauty of the local area and revitalize their own personal trilogy – mind, body, and soul.
What is Glamping?
In many parts of the world, including the UK, Ireland, USA and Australia, glamping has become a very popular vacation destination. Glamping is known as ‘glamorous camping’. In other words it is camping, but in a form that is both convenient and luxurious. Often glamping is kept very simple and might be described as budget accommodation. In its most definitive form, glamping is a high-quality, boutique, vacation experience that provides the same levels of luxury and service you might expect in a high-quality hotel. Here at Glamping Vila Trilogy we are most definitely aiming towards offering this high level of accommodation and experience.
