Description from owner

Description

This is a charming stone villa in a pretty village of Liznjan, near the ancient Roman town of Pula in Istria. The villa is built in stone, by craftsmen who have incorporated many decorative details, and its 700 square metres of garden are surrounded by an exquisite stone wall. The villa has spacious, airy bedrooms and tastefully tiled bathrooms. All rooms are air conditioned. On the first floor lovely large balconies overlook green fields and the sea, which is 1.5 kilometres away. Downstairs is another spacious open plan living area with many doors opening out onto a large terrace and the garden with pool. The villa is quiet and private, as it is on the edge of the village and really in a very secluded rural location and yet within walking distance of shops, restaurants and beaches. The villa is reached from a small country track, through wrought iron gates. The access road is shared only with local farmers and the shepherd who drives his flock along the track.

Location description from owner

The Istria region

Istria is often compared to Tuscany. The undulating landscape with vineyards, olive groves, woodlands and river valleys is studded with numerous hilltop towns and villages, many originating from the medieval period and earlier and almost all offering spectacular vantage points over the surrounding countryside. The guide books pick out the hilltop towns of Motovun and Groznjan but there are many others worth exploring and we will provide you with our own suggestions of places off the usual tourist routes that should not be missed. These medieval settlements have charming village houses, squares and alleyways and in towns like Oprtalj and Motuvun more imposing architecture and fortifications.

Liznjan

Liznjan is located at the southern end of the Istrian peninsula about 15 minutes drive from Pula and Pula airport. Liznjan is a charming agricultural and fishing village about one kilometre from the coast. 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. There are scuba diving schools in Pula and Medulin.
