Description

Vintage Villa Magnolia is a charming town historic villa with its own park, built in 1913 for Austrian navy Captain Julius Riedlein and his family. It is situated in Veruda which was a neighbourhood of family homes of high-ranked Habsboug Empire naval officers. Famous Captain Georg Von Trapp and his family , knowen as "Singing Family von Trapp" villa still stands in the vicinity. Von Trapps moved to Salzburg in the wake of WWI and became world known as a singing family from musical "The Sound of Music".

Villa Magnolia was built by architect, Giuseppe Heininger, who received personal honours from Italian King Vittorio Emanuelle II. It has preserved its original build - twin thick stone walls, which keep the house cool and shady in the summer and preserve the heat in the winter. The villa is designed and furnished in style characteristic for the beginning of 20th century, when flowery Art Nouveau was replaced by more geometrical Art Decó. The rooms are spacious and comfortable

The rooms are spacious and comfortable and still have the original parquet floors, windows with wooden shutters and high ceilings. The bedrooms are air conditioned. Villa's furnishing is eclectic - original Art Nouveau furnishing combined with modern furniture, piano, comfortable beds and newly refurbished bathrooms. It has its own charming Shabby Chic style.

Location description from owner

The Istria region

Villa Magnolia is situated in a quiet residential suburb Veruda. It is easily accessible by road and in walking distance from town centre, beaches, marinas, hotel and entertainment complexes. There are pine woods scattered all around, offering a fragrant shade. Veruda was built up by Austro-hungarian empire for its high-ranked naval officers and many of the old villas, such as Villa Magnolia and villa Von Trap, are still inhabited today. The local transport will take you anywhere you want to go in Pula and surroundings. The Pula Airport is only about 15min drive away, train station is in the centre of town as is the new bus station. From the harbour of Pula you can visit Venice (c/a 2hrs) and nearby islands and other coastal towns, such as Rovinj, Brioni islands, Lim fjord, etc. The ancient roman amphitheatre in the town centre still stands today and hosts many open air events during the summer, such as international film festival, concerts of famous performers, theatre plays, operas, etc. Those more interested in music festivals will enjoy the Dimensions and Outlook festivals. Nearby Valkane beach was a birthplace of once renown Valkane beach party, which was even hosted by MTV in 90s.Pula has a lovely archaeological museum and lots of historical points of interests to see on your walks. You can also have a coffee sitting next to James Joyce (actually, his statue) who occupies a table in the cafe above which he used to live at some point. There are many art shops and galleries, and many artists exhibit their works on stone stairs. There are also many old forts on top of the hills from which is a lovely view of the town and harbour.

Pula

Suburb of Veruda was built in time of Austro-Hungarian empire as a residential area for the austrian navy officers and their families. It is situated ideally between beaches and town centre, all in walking distance. Nowadays it is popular with tourists as well as local residents, but it has retained its tranquility and character.
