Our story

Corner Stone House was built approx. 200 years ago, we are unsure of the exact year. It was built in a typical Istrian style for that period – from stone, high and narrow, attached to two other units. This three units, right across the church of the Holy Spirit from 15th century, formed the corner of the outer ring safeguarding beautiful Castel Bembo.

Three brothers lived here with their families. They lived peaceful lives, farming lands, picking olives and going fishing to a nearby city of Pula and Rovinj. After the World War II and due to extreme poverty, families left Bale and moved to Italy and United States in pursuit of better life. Two houses were sold to the municipality of Bale and the third house is still in the ownership of the original owners.

A few years ago, during our holiday in Istria, we came upon the hidden gem of town of Bale and decided to buy the middle, corner house. We wanted to create a home away from home, place where we can invite our friends and guest and have a fun time.

This is how our story with Corner Stone House begins…and hopefully yours 🙂
