Mulberry House is a recently renovated 200 years old Istrian farmhouse. It is situated in an idyllic small Istrian village of about twenty houses, on top of a hill overlooking the sea (15 mins drive to the coastal town of Porec), with breath-taking views. The house is positioned on a small hill, surrounded by woodlands and countryside. From the flat roof terrace you can enjoy the sunrise over mount Ucka, Adriatic sunset, the Italian coastline and views of woodlands, fields and villages, even the Alps, 250 kilometres away. From here you will enjoy exploring the local countryside, walking, running and cycling along the lanes and through local villages, visiting nearby beaches or just simply relaxing by the pool and absorbing the peace of the natural surroundings. A large, walled garden surrounds the house, and contains a mature mulberry tree, a tall cypress, a large old oak tree and fruit trees, as well as Mediterranean shrubs and flowers. A large variety of delightful birds and butterflies visit the garden.
