Glavini estate has a main house with 5 double bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, designed to provide a quiet and relaxed stay. The property is capable of accommodating up to 10 +2 guests on a private site of over 30,000 m². There is also a guest house available at requestThe friendly service and high standards will best suit those seeking superior quality in an elegant, natural and tranquil setting.
Except for the functionality we have also tried to make Glavini aesthetically pleasing, while we haven't changed the authentic look and feel of the place. In cooperation with nature and its best fruits, the property fits perfectly within the landscape far from the noise, traffic and crowd. It is great to relax and recharge bateries.
Things to do: Things to do can be unique, refreshing, imaginative, surprising – Glavini Estate and Istria can offer all this and more. Whether you are looking from your holiday action, inspiration, relaxation or want to discover Istrian treasures and people do it your own way and these are just some suggestions.
In autumn we have truffles from nearby woods and it is possible to organise unique 'truffle hunting' experiences. In that period we also harvest grapes and olives with organic production of vine and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. In winter from January to March we have unique traditional Istrian Carnival events, with rich entertainment program. The spring is reserved for picking the asparagus, cherry's and other seasonal fruits. The summer brings a plenty of choices from visiting the nearby sea resorts south, east and west from us or checking out some of many regional art and cultural festivals.
Estate: Kids are welcome. Guests can swim in our large 8x4 m pool, relax in the massage or fitness room and enjoying a sweeping view of the landscape. There is also a kid's playground, table tennis, badminton and bocce (closely related to the game of boules). If you are into cycling, we are in the right spot to access and visit all of Istria.
We have around 300 organically grown olive trees as well as 20 cherry, a dozen fig and many apple, peach, pear and plum trees, all organically produced along with our vegetables which are all at your disposal during your stay, depending on the season.
We believe that we are an integral part of the earth and nature and we use renewable energy as much as we can. The home is fitted with solar collectors with an under floor heating system, run using renewable energy. Water is collected from the roof, so as not to waste precious resources. We are also connected to a natural spring with drinkable fresh water.
Location: It is the perfect location for exploring the delights of Istria, the rest of Croatia, Slovenia (20 km) and Italy (30 km) as well as many tourist spots in the surrounding area.
The property is in sight of the town of Draguc, close to Buzet (12 km), Motovun (12 km) and just 35 km from the sea in any direction (north Trieste, west Porec, Novigrad or south Opatija, Rabac, Rijeka). It sits nestled in a landscape of gentle, rolling hills, rich in Mediterranean flora.

The Istria region
Istria is indeed a feast for the eyes. Its streams flow to the sea through deep valleys and gullies which bring to mind the ancient local myths about giants. Rolling hills overlook the fields and valleys with little towns perched on the peaks, recalling some old paintings. The view is splendid: white-topped mountains, lush wheat fields, plateaux, valleys, vineyards and olive groves on hillsides, and, finally the sea.
As you get to know Istria you will notice more and more enchanting details: church facades and portals, tiny village alleyways with their specific architectural touches, the babble of a stream, the blossoming cherries. Everything is warm–hearted and friendly here: nature, towns and people.
Green Istria - Glavini
Istria has laid out its wonders in the garden of the Mediterranean, at the foot of the Alps. The blue Adriatic Sea washes its shores, and the towns strung like pearls along the coast: Umag-Umago, Novigrad-Cittanova, Porec, Vrsar-Orsera, Rovinj-Rovigno, Pula, Rabac - the towns that have made Istria a famous destination.
But there is also another Istria, a hidden Istria, whose treasures are also worth exploring - the inland heart of Istria, green Istria, a land between dreams and reality, a land of beauty and peace of history and clean, unspoiled nature. Its towns and its people will bid you welcome and let you share in their spirit and the times long gone.
Welcome to the land of history, beauty and vitality!
