Villa Mulberry is a completely renovated 200 year old Istrian farmhouse. It is situated in an idyllic small Istrian village of about twenty houses, on top of a hill overlooking the sea, and 15 mins drive to the coastal town of Porec.

The house is surrounded by woodlands and countryside, with breath-taking views. From the roof terrace you can enjoy the sunrise over mount Ucka, the Adriatic sunset, the Italian coastline and views of woodlands, fields and villages, and even the Alps 250 kilometres away. From here you will enjoy exploring the local countryside, walking, running and cycling along the lanes and through local villages, visiting nearby beaches or just simply relaxing by the pool and absorbing the peace of the natural surroundings.

A large, walled garden surrounds the house, and contains a mature mulberry tree, a tall cypress, a large old oak tree and fruit trees, as well as Mediterranean shrubs and flowers. A large variety of delightful birds and butterflies visit the garden.


The villa manageress discretely lives in the basement, which has a separate entrance on the opposite side of the villa entrance. The garden/pool area cannot be overlooked by the manageress. 

Villa Mulberry near Viznjan


The house is arranged on three floors. The maximum number of 9 people cannot be exceeded.


Ground floor

The main entrance to the house and the main living area are on the raised ground floor. Six stone steps lead to a covered entrance and a hallway, which contains an open-plan kitchen/ dining/ sitting area, two bedrooms, a bathroom and a utility room with washing machine and storage. The kitchen is equipped with an electric hob and a microwave oven, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, kettles, a coffee machine, plenty of cooking utensils, glassware, plates and cutlery. A dining table can sit 9 persons. In the sitting area is a large L-shaped sofa and armchairs, and a TV/DVD system. From this area there is a doorway directly onto a covered balcony overlooking the south garden. There are two bedrooms on this floor. One, although classified as a single room, has a double bed and and a garden view and the other is a twin bedroom with a view of the garden and the pool. The bedrooms share a bathroom. From the ground floor hallway a handmade heavy wooden staircase leads to the bedrooms on the first floor. There is air conditioning in the main living area which also serves to cool the two bedrooms on this level as well. 

First floor

The first floor spacious hallway has a window overlooking the garden, pool and countryside. Off the hallway are two bedrooms, one with a double and single bed and the other with twin beds. There is also a second sitting room with a sofa bed and kitchenette, which can be used as another bedroom. Both bedrooms and the living area on this floor have their own air conditioning. There is also a bathroom on this floor.

Second floor

This floor is very special as it contains a small sitting room with glass walls, and a surrounding terrace, from which you can have uninterrupted views of an enormous stretch of the Adriatic, all the way from Rovinj to the Italian coast. You have a 360 degree view of the wonderful Istrian countryside, vineyards, olive groves, cycle routes and small villages. It also has a sofa bed so can be used as another bedroom. This room is reached by a wooden staircase from the first floor.


The spacious garden offers a great deal of privacy and is enclosed with stone walls and gates, and full of wonderful scented Mediterranean plants such as fig trees, rosemary and lavender. The pool is 8 x 3 metres and surrounded by a tiled sunbathing area, with sun loungers and chairs. Adjacent is a decked area which also has sun loungers. A large oak tree and other mature trees provide sufficient shade during the heat of the day. The rest of the garden is mainly laid to lawn. In one corner of the garden is an outdoor barbecue. For outdoor dining, a large pine table, benches and chairs are on one of the covered terraces, facing south.

Villa Location Map


Wir waren 2 Wochen in dem schönen Haus in dem kleinen Dorf und hatten einen wunderbaren Urlaub. Die 6 Kinder hatten viele Ruckzugsorte zum spielen, das Haus ist gepflegt und die Gastgeberin zuvorkommend und angenehm. Für Reisende, die gerne das Umland erkunden, ist das Haus gut gelegen im Hinterland. 3mal in der Woche kommt ein Bäckerauto, ansonsten ist es ruhig und entspannt. Unser Highlight war tatsächlich die Dachterrasse mit Meerblick, auf der wir jeden Abend die Sterne und das Meer bestaunten. Es gibt viele Sitzmöglichkeiten im Außenbereich, Feigenbäume auf dem Hof, stets Schattenplätze und einen Grill. Das Haus ist mit allen notwendigen Sachen ausgestattet und es war für uns (4 Erwachsene und 6 Kinder) sehr stimmig.


Translation: We stayed 2 weeks in this beautiful house in the small village and had a wonderful holiday. The 6 children had many retreats to play in, the house is well maintained and the hostess is courteous and pleasant. For travellers who like to explore the surrounding area, the house is well located in the hinterland. A mobile baker comes 3 times a week, otherwise it's quiet and relaxed. Our highlight was actually the roof terrace with sea view, where we admired the stars and the sea every evening. There are plenty of outdoor seating areas, fig trees in the yard, always shaded areas and a grill. The house is equipped with all the necessary things and it was perfect for us (4 adults and 6 children).

Very nice villa in smal village


Very nice villa with fantastic garden and pool. Inside the villa was not modern but good enough for our family of 11 people.

About location:

Villa was situated in a very small village. 20 minute drive to Porec and the beaches which was more than acceptable.

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.
