Villa Mulberry is a recently 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 house is arranged on four floors. The maximum number of 12 people cannot be exceeded.
A large basement room 8 x 6 metres, which is primarily a dance studio, has a window and French doors which open out directly onto the garden. This area also has a shower room, and is self-contained. It can be used as an additional bedroom.
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 12 persons. In the sitting area is a large L-shaped sofa and armchairs, and a TV/DVD system. The sofa can be extended to provide another double bed. From this area there is a doorway directly onto a covered balcony overlooking the south garden. Of the two bedrooms on this floor, one is a double with 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 airconditioning in the main living area which serves to cool the two bedrooms on this level as well.
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 airconditioning. There is also a bathroom on this 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, chairs and sun umbrellas provided. Adjacent is a decked area which also has sun loungers and sun umbrellas. 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. Pool towels are provided.
