This new, stone built villa sits splendidly in an 8000 acre garden, resembling an Istrian nobleman's manor of old. The villa is surrounded by beautiful natural greenery and Mediterranean rural landscape of olive groves and vineyards. One really feels fresh air on this estate, which offers you country walks, wonderful food and wine, beaches and sightseeing just around the corner. In front of the whole length of the villa there is a double height colonnaded outdoor terrace- the downstairs terrace for al fresco dining in the shade, and the upstairs terrace providing bedroom balconies with unforgettable views. As the town of Porec is only 3 miles away, there is a lot of culture, sightseeing, and best area for water sports.

The old style country kitchen is elegant and functional, equipped with another dining table, oven and hob, fridge freezer, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, blender, coffee maker, kettle plenty of good utensils, plates and glassware.

Olive trees and other Mediterranean greenery grow all around the estate, and great lawns and terraces stretch around the Villa. The pool is an infinity pool, with plenty of sunbathing area, sunbeds and pool towels. Outdoor terraces have a barbecue and great garden furniture and a large table for al fresco dining. The whole experience is amazing. There is parking for several cars.

Magnificent surroundings - we felt like Lords of the Manor
The villa is situated just a few minutes from the beaches of Porec . Tucked away in magnificent surroundings of the Croatian countryside you will have the best of both worlds, village life and the feeling of being lord of the manor.

The villa offers you everything you would expect, especially quality beds and all the amenities you would wish for.

On top of that our landlady, Yvon, made us feel right at home and made our stay one to remember.

Das Ferienhaus kann ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen
Die Anlage war genau so wie beschrieben. Es war alles sehr gepflegt. Der Vermieter war nett und hat uns ein paar Tipps gegeben. Das Ferienhaus kann ich auf jeden Fall weiterempfehlen. Wir waren mit zwei Familien dort und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

The complex was exactly as described. Everything was well kept. The landlord was nice and suggested what to do. I can only recommend this holiday property. We, two families, felt at home.

Porec is one of the principal tourist centres on the Istria coast. The town has a long history. Porec was an important Roman army base in the second century AD (the Roman name was Parentium). Today the old town has elements originating from its Roman and later Venetian history. The most notable building is the Episcopal Complex of the Basilica of Euphrasius dating from the 6th century, an important example of early Byzantine architecture and the earliest example of a triple apsed church in Western Europe. In the summer Porec is a busy tourist centre with an abundance of restaurants, cafes and hotels around the centre and along the coast, a selection of beaches and a wide range of activities and entertainments for all age groups close at hand. These activities include waterparks, cable water skiing and wake boarding, cycle routes (including level tracks along the sea shore), kayak and jet ski hire, banana boat rides, Dino park (an amusement park for kids with rides and life size model dinosaurs), Barendine cave and the Parenzana electric train.
Getting there. Pula airport is 55 Kilometres (40 minute drive) and Trieste airport in Italy is 126 km (2 hours drive). There is a ferry service from Venice so a holiday in Porec can be combined with a short stay or a day trip to Venice.

Pula Airport

Pula Airport is 7km from Pula centre and 3km from the main motorway that runs the length of Istria.
