This delightful house is perched above the medieval town walls of the hilltop town of Oprtalj in Central Istria and has breathtaking views over valleys, vineyards, olive groves and distant mountain ranges. The landscape is wonderful; in the spring and summer you are surrounded by lush greenery, and in the autumn a whole range of colours is dazzling - from yellows and golds, to pinks, bright reds and browns. The view towards the town is also charming - sitting on the terrace, among the fig and palm trees you can discern the white Venetian church bell tower across the road, on the little town square.

The house is in the medieval town of Oprtalj also known by its Italian name Portole. The population there is bilingual - Croatian and Italian. All around the town are panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The house is south facing with a terrace planted with vines and a private garden. The garden is planted with a large fig tree and rosemary bushes, and typical Mediterranean vegetation.

From a cobbled road the house is reached through a pedestrian private arched alleyway. It is an extremely quiet and peaceful location very reminiscent of Tuscany. The region is renowned for its food and wine and there are many excellent restaurants within easy driving distance whilst the interior of Istria with hilltop towns and beautiful landscape is ideal for touring, cycling and walking.

Villa Location Map


The view is stunning
The villa is absolutely lovely. Traditional with modern facilities. The view is stunning. Sunrises are spectacular from the terrace or
bedroom. We went late summer season and the village was very peaceful with the villa a haven of tranquility. The kitchen and
shower room are great. The washing machine was very easy to use. The bedrooms are upstairs and are very comfortable and spacious. The garden area has great views of the valley. All in all, a wonderful holiday villa in a beautiful location.

About location:

The location is excellent. Oprtalj is a wonderful friendly community village in which there are holiday villas. The local grocery store is
perfect for a wide range of essentials. Eating out couldn't be better. The Konoba Oprtalj is fantastic, offering stunning sunsets and gorgeous meals. The chef and waiting staff are very friendly and make every visit really enjoyable. There are plenty of walking,
cycling and running routes locally. The local 'back' roads around Oprtalj are all smaller and less busy than the lower main roads
connecting the hill towns in the area. Wild boar, deer, eagles, falcons, Jays, woodpeckers and ravens are all in abundance. The old
Parenzana railway trail a perfect introduction to easy walking or cycling routes in the area.

About Croatian Villa Holidays:

Nigel was super. He organised the villa booking last minute along with great car hire. Communication was excellent throughout.
Directions were very good and our contact in the village that met us to provide us with keys was great also. Mike very kindly took the time to talk to us about the local area and places of interest.
Ed, Aberdeen, UK

Fast communication, nice living, if you don't mind commuting, I recommend this beautiful location. Big praise to the local restaurant, friendly people. Parking is approx. 100 m from the house on the square.

Andrea, Czech Republic

Lovely villa in a beautiful hilltop village. Fabulous quiet location with an amazing view. The house had everything we needed as a family of 5 for a 4 night stay. The local taverna is very welcoming with great food at a reasonable price. Would love to return one day.


The accommodations were fantastic with a great view of the Adriatic in the morning and evening. The parking situation is something to consider as it is in a small village but we made it work on our end. Ultimately this was a great place to stay and would highly recommend!

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.
