Villa Limetta is a very beautiful, luxuriously built and decorated villa which reflects the traditional look of an old Istrian farmhouse. It is located in a small village in southern Istria, tucked away on a tiny country cul-de-sac, well set back from the village road. The tranquillity and mellow appeal of this house, in combination with a large, walled, private garden and a marvellous pool will ensure that the guests have a great holiday. The house is so lovely, that just being there seems to be enough.

Many additional features of this villa are impressive. It has a large covered summer kitchen, which doubles as an outdoor living room with a stone wood fire barbecue. The villa also has a wine cellar, where guests can get wine at cost price. There is a Jacuzzi, a sauna, various attractive sunny patios and terraces, all in all - wonderful. This is definitely a villa for rest and entertainment.

Villa Limetta - near Vodnjan


Ground Floor

The house is reached through the garden gate and a stone path. The entrance hallway leads to a large, light, air conditioned en-suite double bedroom to the right, and to the left of the hallway is the sprawling living area. The floor is either old terracotta bricks or wood. The sitting room is very spacious, with wooden floors and some exposed stone walls. Large sofa and armchairs, rugs, paintings and stylish lighting make this a very pleasant room, and the views of the garden are great. Here is a satellite TV/DVD/music player. The country style kitchen contains a large fridge freezer with an ice maker, cooker, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee machine, kettle, toaster, excellent plates and cutlery, and many cooking utensils. Between the kitchen and the sitting room is a spacious dining room with a beautiful wooden table, sitting 8 people. Also on the ground floor is a separate WC and a utility room with a washing machine, iron and ironing board.


Cellar ("konoba")

The cellar is built below the house and is reached by wide and easy steps leading down from the hallway. There you will find a remarkable entertainment area. The typical Istrian konoba is a room where in the past families kept their food and wine stores, particularly the excellent prosciutto ham. The room is decorated in an authentic style of Istrian cellars, old brick floor, lovely brick arch detail on the stone walls and shelves filled with quality Croatian wines. You will be able to buy bottles of wine there at cost price. These days Istrian villa owners build konobas as a place for special parties with their friends, who enjoy good wine. The new addition to this old style is the jacuzzi and sauna next to the Konoba, and also another bathroom.

First Floor

An attractive staircase leads to the first floor landing, and then to three air-conditioned double bedrooms each with their own bathroom. The bedrooms have comfortable double beds, storage space and they overlook the garden and pool. All bed linen and bathroom towels are provided.


The vast lawn garden is surrounded by a wall, and provides a lot of privacy. Around the stunning pool, 5m x 10m, there is a tiled sunbathing area with sunbeds, and bath towels are provided. Also in the garden is a children's swing and climbing frame. A particular attraction is a summer kitchen, with brick floor and a superb wooden fireplace which is set up as an outdoor barbecue. It is well equipped, with an old Istrian credenza for storage, dishwasher and bread maker and you can cook there and dine al fresco at the large wrought iron dining table.


Additional Information

  • There is parking for several cars
  • Baby cot and high chair available on request

Local Amenities

Grocery store, cafes and restaurant are in the nearby village of Rakalj. The nearest large town is the ancient town of Pula, 15 miles away. There you will find good beaches, shops, markets, supermarkets, bars, excellent restaurants and entertainment. It is a town of culture, with a genuine 2000 year old Roman amphitheatre, where now instead of gladiators, you can enjoy pop music concerts and open air opera alike. Roman squares and temple mix with medieval palaces and a large harbour.

There are no recent reviews.
Vodnjan is a charming town with many medieval houses and narrow winding streets and sunny town squares which are full of shops and cafes, and outdoor life. You can eat spectacular ice creams sitting in an outside cafè all day, sip cool beers and crisp dry white Malvasia local wine, browse the town market, or visit restaurants and bars in the evening, when the whole town seems to be alive with strollers and diners. The focal point of the town is the Baroque church of St Blaise, well worth a visit as it contains great old master Italian paintings, antique items and relics. Visit Betika Palace to see and learn more about Vodnjan's history which is so intertwined with the history of Venice. If you are in Vodnjan in August, you will be entertained by the traditional summer festival with all kinds of food stalls to sample from, local arts and crafts and music performances in town squares.
In the surrounding area it is worth visiting a little village of Peroj, with its own nice beach, 4km from Vodnjan. Also nearby is the small town of Fazana, which has its own lovely harbour from where you can hire boats and water taxis to take you to the fabulous national park islands of Brioni. You can swim on Fazana's lovely pebbly and very clean beach.On the day when you want to splash out, visit restaurant "Vodnjanka", one of the best in the area, where the owner Mrs Svjetlana Celija is also the chef (open 11am - 12 midnight, telephone +385 (0)52 511435). This family restaurant has been providing delicious food for 40 years, and go there if you love gnocchi, home made pasta, truffles, wild asparagus, air dried prosciutto ham, grilled fish, venison and lots more. Local reds and whites are gorgeous - red tangy merlots and white malvazia and pinot, chardonnays and amazing rose wines. Or, you can sit in a town bistro with a plate of grilled calamari, home made chips and a mixed salad if you want to keep it simple.
