This is a rare opportunity to stay in a newly renovated lighthouse which is very secluded, but easily reached by car via a small country road. It is also just four km from a fishing village with restaurants and supermarkets, and in a perfect position for you to swim just in front of your house. The lighthouse is built on a promontory and has a characteristic bright white façade. The main house stands on its own in a 1000 square metres walled garden, but all around the house are fields and in front is just the sea. The lighthouse villa gets its electricity from solar panels and collects rainwater in a water tank. Central heating with wood pellet stove.

Beach in the village of Liznjan
There are many delightful spots to swim around Liznjan Bay. In the bay below the village there is a popular swimming area for families with children as it has sheltered shallow water and a sandy bottom. A short walk or drive around the bay will bring you to many other swimming areas; one with a grove of pine trees providing shade from the midday sun and another with an ancient stone quay offering a good spot for jumping and diving into the water. Other stretches of coastline that can be reached only by farm tracks (we will give you directions) will take you to more secluded shingle bays with crystal clear water which are perfect for relaxing, swimming and snorkelling.The small island of Levan which is just a few hundred metres offshore has a wonderful golden sandy beach and a couple of beach bar/restaurants serving drinks and freshly grilled fish and meat; a taxi boat can take you from the mainland to the beach. In nearby Medulin there is a sheltered sandy bay with very shallow water that is ideal for young children. The rocky promontory of Rt Kamenjak (the tip of Istria is a national park and offers a great choice of beaches.
