On the southernmost tip of Istria, the village of Liznjan still retains its traditional atmosphere of an Adriatic fishing village. The fishing boats cluster in the rural harbour, intermingling with wind surfers and kite surfers. Small boats still leave at sunset and catch their fish in an old fashioned way. This particular patch of land has its own excellent micro-climate, and the sun is almost always shining. The village has several grocery shops, a wonderful bakery and a butcher, three restaurants and a few cafes and beach bars. The sea is clean and wonderful to swim in. Not much further away, there is a very lively village of Medulin, with many restaurants, cafes, ice cream parlours, water sports and a sandy beach equipped with beach bars and sunbeds.

Right at the edge of this village the Villa Zahara nestles among 12 sister villas in a walled and gated estate. It is a beautifully built villa with traditional features of stone walls, tiled floors and natural wood beams. The villa is all modern and full of light inside, every room air conditioned, and has a WiFi. High quality lighting, furniture, bed linen, cooking utensils and tableware are provided. The bedrooms have their own satellite TV each.

Villa Zahara has its private garden , pool and parking for two cars. Within ten minutes you will reach the grocery shop, a butcher, a cafe, a restaurants, bakery, bank, doctor and chemist. We think that a car is not needed, but we recommend it. A riding school, the sandy beach, biking trails and adrenaline park are in the vicinity. Visit the amazing towns of Pula, Rovinj, Porec and Motovun, the local wineries and some of the best restaurants in Croatia. This is also a paradise for water sports, wild swimming, biking and foodies. If you are flying, the local airport Pula is about 30 minutes' drive away, and Trieste airport one hour drive.

The village has several small shops providing a wide range of groceries as well as fresh bread and vegetables. There are several restaurants and cafe/bar. The tourist trade is restricted mainly to bed and breakfast and private apartments rental. The neighbouring village of Medulin (less than 2 kilometres distant) has a much more extensive tourist trade with several hotels and a wider range of shops, bars and restaurants. A number of activities are available locally including tennis and riding. There are well market cycle routes and some delightful country and coastal footpaths.

Eating out
Local restaurants in Liznjan and Medulin offer a varied menu including excellent seafood whilst in Pula there are several restaurants offering first class cuisine and fine wines.
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.
