£1000 - £2570 per week
A high standard modern air-conditioned villa in the rustic style of old Istrian farmhouses, offering all modern facilities. Three bedrooms, three bathrooms, garden and pool, lovely views across meadows and olive groves, with a view to the sea.
This is a charming stone villa in a pretty village of Liznjan, near the ancient Roman town of Pula in Istria. The villa is built in stone, by craftsmen who have incorporated many decorative details, and its 700 square metres of garden are surrounded by an exquisite stone wall. The villa has spacious, airy bedrooms and tastefully tiled bathrooms. All rooms are air conditioned. On the first floor lovely large balconies overlook green fields and the sea, which is 1.5 kilometres away. Downstairs is another spacious open plan living area with many doors opening out onto a large terrace and the garden with pool. The villa is quiet and private, as it is on the edge of the village and really in a very secluded rural location and yet within walking distance of shops, restaurants and beaches. The villa is reached from a small country track, through wrought iron gates. The access road is shared only with local farmers and the shepherd who drives his flock along the track.
The villa is arranged on two floors, with a carport on the north side of the villa.
The villa entrance is on the side of the villa, through a lovely arched stone porch and wooden doors. A stone paved hallway leads into the open plan kitchen-dining room. The terracotta tiles and wooden beams are in keeping with the rustic style of the villa, as is the built-in country kitchen. The kitchen is well supplied withal cooking utensils, plates, glassware and cutlery. A utility room with a washing machine is reached from the kitchen. The kitchen has a cooker, fridge freezer, dishwasher, kettle, toaster and a coffee machine. A step down leads from the dining area into the beautiful sitting room with stunning wood flooring and a stone fireplace. Large double doors lead out onto the paved and shady terrace and a large swimming pool. The room is furnished with comfortable leather sofas and extra armchairs, and a satellite TV/DVD player/music player are provided for the guests. On the ground floor is a double bedroom and a large bathroom. The double doors open out from the bedroom and you can go out directly into the garden and the pool.
A staircase leads upstairs to two double bedrooms and their en-suite shower rooms. Bedrooms, with wood floors, have comfortable double beds and good storage space, and each has a large balcony. One bedroom looks out onto the garden and woodland, and the other bedroom has a fantastic half-covered terrace which overlooks many fields and the sea.
