A lovely small Istrian villa with pool, great charm and character. Recently renovated with sensitivity and taste, keeping its original rustic feel, with added warmth and comfort. The villa has 80 square meters and is located in a small village right in the centre of Istria, near Pazin which is the main town with shopping, cafes and restaurants. Around the house there are great vistas of rolling countryside planted with olive trees and vineyards. You are near some very nice restaurants, excellent wine producing vineyards, many quaint villages and only 30 minutes drive to the sea and beaches. The villa is arranged on two floors with the living area on the ground floor and two bedrooms on the first floor. The pool is positioned in what used to be an old cottage ruin that has been restored to a lovely enclosed terrace, with a window on the wall looking at valleys and fields. This villa is perfect for couples who want to spend their holiday in a character home, in tranquillity, but close to wonderful Mediterranean nature and Venetian style coastal towns and lovely beaches. Equally good for families with children. There is plenty of parking for several cars.

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.
