This is a stone built villa in the tradition of Istrian stone farmhouse, with a traditional outdoor staircase leading to the first floor, to a large outdoor covered landing/terrace. In the olden days the ground floor and first floor were totally separated, as the family would keep their animals and storage on the ground floor, and the living area was on the first floor. These days everything inside is of the highest standard, and there is an indoor staircase, whilst the outdoor staircase is there to remind us how the farmer once lived. Small windows and wooden shutters provide protection from the summer heat.

There are another three villas in the complex which together could sleep up to 34 people. Each villa has its own pool but the main garden and grounds are shared, including a small golf practice area. A wine cellar where you can buy excellent wines is also available.

Hilltop village near Pazin
An important town located in the centre of Istria. The castle in Pazin is the best preserved medieval fortress in Istria. It was first mentioned in written documents in 983. Located in the castle are the Ethnograhic Museum of Istria and the Museum of Pazin. Under the walls of the castle lies the entrance to the Pazin cave through which flows an underground river that inspired Jules Verne to give Pazin Castle and cave a central role in his novel Mathias Sandorf (1885). There is a 1.3km walking path through the canyon which includes sightseeing within the cave. If you like some excitement with the zip wire criss crossing the dramatic canyon below the castle is reason enough to visit Pazin and a major attraction to the town.
