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 (four-wheel drive) is highly recommended!

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.

Really lovely building
Really lovely building but felt like renovations were rushed towards the end.

About location:

Remote which is what we wanted, however people passing by the property occasionally. I think its still a public

”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“

Airports in Italy


One option for getting to Istria, the north west end of the Croatian coastline, is to fly to Italy. This works particularly well if you are staying in northern Istria or in you want to combine your holiday with a short stay in Venice  

Ryanair flies regularly to Trieste in north Italy from London-Stansted. There are also flights from Bari, Trapani, Alghero and Valencia. Trieste Airport is 1 hour drive from the Croatia/Slovenia border.

Slightly further away, but still within reach, there are regular flights by Ryanair from many European cities to Treviso (just north of Venice). EasyJet and British Airways and many other operators fly to Venice (Marco Polo Airport). A couple of days in Venice makes a great two centre holiday.
