A sunny and peaceful, authentic, stone lighthouse had been stylishly renovated and furnished, and is now a fabulous place for nature and sea lovers. The villa is spacious, comprising 170 square metres and is only five metres from the sea, surrounded by a large walled garden. The electricity supply is through solar panels and a generator, so there is no washing machine or dishwasher, but this is a fair price to pay for the wild beauty of this stunning place. There is plenty of gas for cooking and plenty of hot water for showering. Central heating with wood pellet stove.

Just 150 metres away is your own small pebbly beach and it is 5km to the village shop and restaurant. The owners can arrange delivery of home cooked food and boat trips to the local islands. They will also arrange for your laundry to be done, if required. This fabulous and slightly quirky place will be memorable, and loads of culture and restaurants for foodies are nearby. A car is highly recommended, a four-wheel drive!

Beautiful setting, good accommodation ...
Beautiful setting, good accommodation, great for relaxing, but not great to get to and from. There is a very rough downhill drive to lighthouse.

Featured in The Sunday Times top 100 holidays for 2016.
Villa Negroponte was Number 10 in The Sunday Times top 100 holidays for 2016.
”Villa Negroponte is a four bedroom lighthouse hidden in the pines at the tip of the Labinstina peninsula in Istria. Inside you will find rock walls, beamed ceilings and an observation deck, but its the outdoors that will steal your heart“

Labin - hilltop town
Labin is a medieval hilltop town three kilometres from the coast and the resort town of Rabac. The old town, one of the best preserved medieval hilltop towns in Istria, is delightful to walk around. The town was a centre for mining and the City Museum has a 150 metre tunnel that you enter to re-live the town's mining history. Lonely Planet ranked the museum in their top ten most original museums in Croatia. The town also houses the memorial collection of Matthias Flacius Illyricus, the Reformation theologian and collaborator of Martin Luther, who was born in Labin. Labin is a centre for the arts and the work of local painters is on display in galleries. There are plenty of cafés and restaurants in the towns alleyways and squares for refreshment.
