This house will most definitely win you over with its charm. Even if you do not believe in magic, its magical alchemy fused with inexplicable life energy is contagious and enticing.
Here, you can freely say: Welcome vacation, goodbye hurry!
If you ever get an opportunity to stay in this house, you will soon understand that these moments of rest, where all the emotional hurry disappears, are indeed moments of incredible peace.
The seducing relaxation of every area of this house, every detail carefully thought out in order to create a warm and pleasant atmosphere will leave no one untouched.
Even while sitting on the bench beside the old oak tree, you will most likely feel that particulars are emerging from its bark, a kind of inner spirit. And you will not know how, but you will feel the presence of something good, even though you will not see it. The secular olive trees, the spices and herbs garden will also seem strangely familiar, as if you had already experienced many things together.
Still, this is not a story easily shown in a movie, or written on a paper, since it could never be complete without actual moments spent in it. Only then, we will truly be able to tell you the story about our passion, inspiration and this place's permanent energy…perhaps, you will not want to hear it…since everything you will need to know, will be right here for you…
You just need to come and Experience it!
This remarkable house is located in a small village in the proximity of the West coast of the Istrian peninsula, and already at first glance revives the charm of known Istrian stone, used to build many famous constructions some even dating back to Roman times (as the Rialto Bridge in Venice, the base of the gothic bell tower in Ferrara, the San Sebastiano cupola in Padua and many other).
In the house you can feel a breath of antiquity and traditional values, creating a nostalgic and warm sensation. The feeling of home and calmness spreading throughout the rooms is created by the greatest friends of rustic style, stone and wood. Elegant curtains and bedcovers create a noble and respectable ambience applied to all three rooms.
The different colors of walls in rooms, as well as dominant colors in their related bathrooms, are dedicated to the oldest residents of this house's garden: the oak tree, the olive and the orchid, with their combined harmony offering a relaxing, peaceful atmosphere, ideal for a vacation.
The large kitchen, with hung up dishes and bundles of dried up spices and herbs, onion and garlic wreaths, with bottles of exceptional Istrian olive oil, baskets of various groceries, old decorative items and recipe books is a real small oasis of warmth, love and satisfaction, missing only you to complete the picture of a culinary hedonism. Which we feel, won't be hard, at all, since, along with your imagination and culinary creativity you will find numerous tools, utensils and kitchen appliances. In this atmosphere, even the stove, oven and fridge, although modern, seem somehow old-fashioned.
The heart of this countryside house is the living room fireplace. Nothing can replace the beauty of the fire, and even though you will most likely experience this house only in the summer, it doesn't mean that one winter evening you will not have the opportunity to indulge in the smells and crackling sounds of the wood burning in the fireplace, after a swim in the salty water pool in front of the house.
In this house, representing a splendid symbiosis of rustic style in a modern way with a great dose of creative charm, an important place takes up the wine cellar. The wine in Istria, and thus in this house as well, is an inexplicable light, need and love, a way of living and a myth. Istrian western vineyards (Pore?, Pula, Buje and Rovinj) are the largest in Istria, and a small part of these secular and well known wines can be tasted also in our cellar. The sophisticated atmosphere, fresh taste, scents of fruits, acacia flowers, wild carnations and others extraordinary aromas that are spreading throughout our cellar can get blended, if you wish, with absolutely unique and exceptional Istrian smoked ham, cheese and olive oil.
As you already know from our story, all you need to know about this house is right here, not on the screen, not on paper…
You just need to come and experience it!
