There's a family of 6 people living here, including two small children, eager to make new friends. We produce high quality vine and olive oil, which you can taste and buy. In the backyard there's a tavern with a fireplace, usually used in winter period for family gatherings and parties, and in the basement a small cellar with our products.
We are situated on biking trail, walking and hiking are also possible. In the area there are many famous restaurants, vine cellars and olive oil trails, horse riding, sport activities, entertainment facilities, historic and cultural sites worth a visit..
In the evenings, it is so quiet here, you can hear the crickets and owls... You can relax in the rocking chair, gaze at incredibly shiny stars and let enchanting summer breeze free all your senses from weighing stress...
Our guests are our friends, they have all the help they need from us, still with the privacy of their own home. We want you to feel like family!

The Istria region
Istria is one of favourite destinations for foreign visitors to Croatia. Bordering Slovenia and with a maritime border with Italy, this peninsula is easy to reach from the rest of Europe and is also well-connected by air to the main airport in the region, Pula Airport.
This is a bilingual region, the official languages are Croatian and Italian. Many people say that istria is a lot like Tuscany, with its soft, green hills and beautiful small towns on top of them... There are dozens of them, each well worth a visit, to mention a few: Grožnjan, Motovun, Hum, Momjan... While here, you should visit Arena, famous and well-preserved Roman amphitheatre in Pula, then Brijuni islands, Lim Fjord, Baredine cave, Rovinj, pearl of Istrian towns, Hum, the smallest town in the world and so many other things to explore...
Istria offers huge range of various events, sports activities, festivals, concerts, excursions etc, so not a day will pass without an interesting memory for you!

"Excellent hosts, warm, friendly; a very enjoyable week"
We were made to feel welcome as soon as we arrived. A very relaxed week, with excellent hosts. Always there to answer any questions and offer useful advice and tips about the local region, but never intrusive.
The accommodation was good for us as a family of four (two young children) - bedrooms spacious, property clean and plenty of outdoor areas to play in and explore. Kitchen and lounge adequate for our needs.
Lots of good beaches in the local area (about a ten minute drive) and some beautiful hill towns to visit too. The location also offers up opportunities for walks from the Villa - best early or later in the day.
