A spectacular stone staircase and iron bannister leads from the ground floor to the reading room on the first floor, perfectly illustrating Villa Orti’s unique charm.
These iron bannisters, crafted by a 19th century Austrian iron foundry, have been fully restored to their original glory. Looking up from this staircase, guests will notice the ceiling on the slopes of the stairwell, which is beautifully decorated with a rosette of acanthus leaves.
The reading room provides guests with the ideal spot to relax and delve into a book. A wonderfully cozy retreat, this bright room is perched between the master bedrooms on the first floor.
A modern, symmetrical space, this room features a natural wooden floor with pure white walls. With book-in-hand, a large window allows guests to look up and admire the pine trees in front of the university and the peaceful Croatian sky.
