Villa Giulia is a lovely new Istrian villa built in the countryside according to the Istrian tradition, using stone and wood as the typical building materials. The villa is spacious with 160 square metres indoors and has a traditional Istrian terrace, Mediterranean roof tiles, wooden shutters and plenty of space in the garden.

The location is private, the nearest house is another almost identical villa 100 metres away. Fields, woodland and meadows surround the villa and nearby are numerous charming villages, small village taverns, a horse riding ranch and several nice beaches about 5km away (3 miles).

It is a great place for total relaxation with culture and nightlife still at your doorstep. The regional capital, Pula, is 25km away.

There are no recent reviews.
Pula is the main regional town in Istria, with an attractive shopping area, spectacular harbour, lively night live, amazing history, many restaurants and cafes and wonderful beaches. Walk through Pula and experience old town streets and squares some of which were there even in Roman times. The stunning Roman amphitheatre is from the first century AD and ranks as the sixth largest in the world. The amphitheatre or "Arena" is still used for concerts (classical and pop), for gladiatorial re-enactments and for showing Pula's annual film festival. Watching one of these events under the night sky and from the same stone seats that were being used 2000 years ago is a unique experience. The amphitheatre is open to the public daily (pulainfo.hr). Other Roman monuments in Pula include a Triumphal Arch at the entrance to the main shopping street.
The museum is full of artefacts and stonework from Roman times. The Forum, a square surrounded by Roman and renaissance architecture, is a delightful spot to relax over a coffee or a cool drink. Istria is an integral part of Croatia's move into the music festival market. The 19th-century fort of Punta Christo, outside Pula, will echo to the throb of sound systems during the Outlook festival at the end of August each year. Pula is an important port and industrial centre and the shipyard with huge ships under repair and construction right on the harbour front and with its cranes illuminated at night, provides an unusual back drop to this historic town.
