VILLA STANZIA KABRUN
near Svetvincenat, Istria Region

€2000 - €3400 per week

A luxury country estate in acres of garden, comprising of four bedrooms, four bathrooms, air conditioned villa, summer kitchen, wine cellar, wellness house with gym, jacuzzi, sauna and a large heated swimming pool. WiFi. BEDROOMS : 4SLEEPS : 8-10

Stanzia Kabrun is not just a luxury villa, but a whole country estate, spread over 14000 square metres of land, with many outbuildings which have been turned into facilities such as a comprehensive wellness house, a separate summer tavern with a complete kitchen (traditionally known as "konoba") with a large table suitable for parties, a wine cellar for guests to use and a fantastic pool.

The four bedroom villa is an enlarged old farmhouse completely modernised inside, retaining the charming features of old Istrian houses. This means stone tiles on the floor, stone fireplaces, wooden beams and shuttered windows. The villa is painted in pale ochre on the outside with blue shutters, typical Mediterranean colours. Shady terraces surround the villa. Large lawns and gardens are mixed with olive trees, vines and a variety of Mediterranean greenery.

The villa is approached by a country road and stands on its own in huge grounds. From the small road, a long drive takes you through the front yard's stone posts to a set of wrought iron gates that lead into the front courtyard of the villa. Indoors, the villa provides great living spaces and very comfortable bedrooms, with works of art scattered all over the house. It is a wonderful property for a sumptuous holiday giving you an opportunity to have lots of fun on the estate itself and visiting the nearby small towns which are real Adriatic gems. The villa is equally interesting in spring, summer and autumn, even winter. Just 15-30 minutes drive from lovely beaches and good restaurants. A superb golf course is about 45 minutes drive away and the local airport about 30 minutes drive away.

ACCOMMODATION

Ground floor

The whole of the ground floor is one large and roomy living area, with the kitchen at one end, dining area to the side of the kitchen, and connected with three steps to a small landing that opens out onto a terrace covered with climbing plants. The greatest part of the ground floor belongs to the sitting room and the second sitting room/TV room. The light in the living space comes through numerous doors and windows, with white floors and walls adding coolness, and the double height living room providing the sensation of calm and space. The main living room is covered with vivid rugs and kilims, and cream sofas surround a modern style fireplace. The sofas pull out into double beds, and more armchairs provide plenty of seating. The second sitting room leads off the main living room. This room is furnished with squashy sofas, and contains TV/DVD player/music centre. WiFi internet is provided.

The kitchen is traditional and painted cream, with a gas cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher and microwave, a coffee machine, kettle, toaster, plenty of excellent cooking utensils. Plates, glassware and cutlery are all provided and are of excellent quality. The dining area has an antique dining table for 8-10 persons and nice antique vitrines to show off the plates and glassware. The whole floor is such a wonderful, large but also comfortable living space, enhanced by quality lighting and paintings, and an imposing stone staircase.

First floor

The first floor comprises of four double bedroom suites each with a very smart and top quality bathroom. Wood floors and ceiling beams give the villa its old-world look, but each bedroom has a different character. The main bedroom feels classical with its extra large mahogany bed, wardrobe and a writing table, rugs and paintings. The second bedroom also has a double bed, as well as a sofa. The third bedroom has two single beds, a desk and plenty of wardrobe space. The fourth bedroom has a double bed, wardrobes and a desk. There are also four excellent bathrooms. Plenty of bath towels are provided.

OUTSIDE

Garden and pool

The garden is 14000 square metres (3½ acres) surrounded by a stone wall, giving the house a lot of privacy. The pool dimensions are 12m x 5m. A large stone paved sunbathing area with sun loungers surrounds the pool. All your pool towels are provided.

Tavern and summer kitchen ("konoba")

An old shed opposite the big house has been converted into a traditional Istrian tavern/summer kitchen. This is a proper single storey building which houses a magnificent open stone fire place suitable for grilling, cooking and baking. It also has a fully equipped country kitchen, and in the olden days this used to be the place where all the family traditionally gathered, cooked and lived in during all but the coldest couple of months in a year. These days, konoba has an almost mythical, iconic status. It is a luxury to have one, and this is where you invite your closest friends for barbecues and fabulous prosciutto hams, washed down with amazing local wines and beer. It is not a poor man's kitchen any more, but a sophisticated rustic addition to our homes, where Croatians relive their tradition and keep in touch with their past- eating, drinking, chatting and singing. This particular konoba has a massive wooden dining table which can sit 14-16 people.

Wine cellar

Just a stone's throw from the konoba is a separate wine cellar, with a selection of Istrian whites and reds, and local spirits. These are offered at cost price to the guests.

Wellness House

This villa has its own wellness house! Out by the pool another building has been added, which has an indoor Jacuzzi and a sauna, with large glass windows looking out at lawns and the pool. In the basement of this house is a well-equipped gym and a bicycle room with 3 good adult bikes and one child bike, exclusively for the use of guests.

GUEST REVIEWS

We had a great week at Stanzia Kabrun in Croatia. The house and the surrounding towns by the coast were very nice indeed. Excellent weather combined with luxurious living and plenty of culture to explore with excellent food and drink offering - all within 45 minutes drive. In the end I was so comfortable that I ventured to the local hair dresser (very local indeed) to get a hair cut for 60 Kuna.

MO (Pulley, Switzerland)  29/07/2015

We had a beautiful stay and the house was fantastic. Spacious, with a large pool and to our surprise a boccia playing field. We found an excellent Konoba, "Ulika", that we visited 5 or 6 times. The 5 Star rating on the house is deserved. For improvements we would suggest better sunbeds and shade umbrellas. More towels and maybe cleaning more than once during our stay.

JO (Flaktveit, Norway)  29/07/2015

I just would like to thank you for your suggestion - Stanzia Kabrun was a fantastic place and we really enjoyed being there (despite the rather ugly weather).

JK (Hungary)  06/08/2014

We had a great time there - you were right, it's lovely! The villa was truly exceptional - the outdoor kitchen was excellent for a large group, as was the BBQ area and outside table. The pool was a great size and lovely - well kept/cleaned everyday. We enjoyed playing boulles and my husband used the little gym daily. The inside of the villa was beautiful, very nicely decorated and comfortable, though we spent little time inside. There was even a playstation, which the kids enjoyed, and bikes, which we didn't really get a chance to use. The villa's in a very quiet location and a good base for exploring surrounding towns, but you need a car to get around. All in all we had a wonderfully relaxing week and could happily have stayed longer...
