CASA DELLA VIGNA
Oprtalj, Istria Region

€400 - €850 per week

A two bedroom house in medieval hilltop town. Breathtaking views across central Istria. Air-conditioned, terrace and garden. Golf course 30min away. A house for all seasons. BEDROOMS : 2SLEEPS : 4-6

This delightful house is perched above the medieval town walls of the hilltop town of Oprtalj in Central Istria and has breathtaking views over valleys, vineyards, olive groves and distant mountain ranges. The landscape is wonderful; in the spring and summer you are surrounded by lush greenery, and in the autumn a whole range of colours is dazzling - from yellows and golds, to pinks, bright reds and browns. The view towards the town is also charming - sitting on the terrace, among the fig and palm trees you can discern the white Venetian church bell tower across the road, on the little town square.

The house is in the medieval town of Oprtalj also known by its Italian name Portole. The population there is bilingual - Croatian and Italian. All around the town are panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The house is south facing with a terrace planted with vines and a private garden. The garden is planted with a large fig tree and rosemary bushes, and typical Mediterranean vegetation.

From a cobbled road the house is reached through a pedestrian private arched alleyway. It is an extremely quiet and peaceful location very reminiscent of Tuscany. The region is renowned for its food and wine and there are many excellent restaurants within easy driving distance whilst the interior of Istria with hilltop towns and beautiful landscape is ideal for touring, cycling and walking.

GUEST REVIEWS

The view is stunning

The villa is absolutely lovely. Traditional with modern facilities. The view is stunning. Sunrises are spectacular from the terrace or bedroom. We went late summer season and the village was very peaceful with the villa a haven of tranquility. The kitchen and shower room are great. The washing machine was very easy to use. The bedrooms are upstairs and are very comfortable and spacious. The garden area has great views of the valley. All in all, a wonderful holiday villa in a beautiful location.

The location is excellent. Oprtalj is a wonderful friendly community village in which there are holiday villas. The local grocery store is perfect for a wide range of essentials. Eating out couldn't be better. The Konoba Oprtalj is fantastic, offering stunning sunsets and gorgeous meals. The chef and waiting staff are very friendly and make every visit really enjoyable. There are plenty of walking, cycling and running routes locally. The local 'back' roads around Oprtalj are all smaller and less busy than the lower main roads connecting the hill towns in the area. Wild boar, deer, eagles, falcons, Jays, woodpeckers and ravens are all in abundance. The old Parenzana railway trail a perfect introduction to easy walking or cycling routes in the area.

Nigel was super. He organised the villa booking last minute along with great car hire. Communication was excellent throughout. Directions were very good and our contact in the village that met us to provide us with keys was great also. Mike very kindly took the time to talk to us about the local area and places of interest.

Casa della Vigna was wonderful

We have been home a week, having left Oprtalj last Sunday, and I have finally found a moment to draw breath and sit down and reflect on our time in Croatia.

Firstly, thank you so much again Nigel for arranging things at such short notice, only a day prior to our arrival in Zagreb. The hire company that you use were excellent. Elizabeta handled the rental in the Zagreb office from where Christian had left off and was superb, making us feel very comfortable about the whole process and the support available to us throughout our rental period.

Our time in Oprtalj was fantastic. Casa della Vigna was wonderful. Thank you and thank you to Mike for making it available for the dates of our stay. The village, the people, the views, the food and wine and the property itself left a big impression on both of us. We had a great time and very much hope to stay there again at some point.

Response from Croatian Villa Holidays:

Ed, So glad you enjoyed your stay. We too think that Oprtalj is a magical place. Thank you for your generous comments.
