The sprawling farmhouse comprises of 335 square metres of living space and sits in half an acre (2000 m2) garden with a very large pool.

Ground floor
Terracotta tiles cover the whole ground floor. A lovely sitting room has exposed stone walls, plenty of comfortable sofas and armchairs, nice old Istrian furniture and lighting. Here you can relax in front of the satellite TV/DVD and music centre, a home cinema and in cooler months, by the fire in the open rustic fireplace. A separate kitchen with pale green walls and dark green modern version of a country kitchen has a breakfast bar and is equipped with a cooker, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, microwave oven, coffee machine, kettle, toaster and excellent cooking utensils, plates and glassware. A separate dining room also in rustic style is next to the kitchen and accommodates 10 to 12 people. A separate ground floor annexe with a sitting room, kitchenette, double bedroom and bathroom is attached to the villa on the ground floor and has a French door into the garden. In the single storey part of the farm which used to be a store house for the family?s olive oil and wine, now there is a games room with a snooker table, table tennis and table football. How lovely that it opens out onto the garden. You can enjoy the indoor Jacuzzi spa and a sauna on the ground floor.

First floor
On the first floor are four wonderful bedrooms, each one with its en-suite shower room. Two bedrooms have extra large double beds, and two are furnished with twin beds. There is air conditioning in every bedroom and each has a lovely view of the green and lush garden. All the bathrooms are new and tastefully tiled with Italian tiles and bathroom furniture and fittings. Beds are very comfortable and provided with good quality bed linen and also towels. All the furnishings are in old Istrian style.

Further details outdoors

The large garden is dominated by a very old mulberry tree which is typical for old Istrian farmhouses. The garden is wonderful and has a nice and very large swimming pool 10 x 5 metres, and also a children?s swimming pool. Around the pool is a sunbathing area provided with sunbeds, sun umbrellas and pool towels. There are several patios, covered terraces and a barbecue for outdoor dining. It is a paradise for families with children and for anyone who wishes to be in tranquillity but only 20 mins away from wonderful renaissance Venetian style towns and beaches.

Location description from manager

The Istria region

The west coast of Istria is within easy reach. Many of the towns on this coast are communities first established in the Roman era or earlier but the dominant influence that can be seen today is Venetian. Most of the major coastal towns were under the control of the Venetian Republic during the medieval period. At the northern end of the coast the charming town of Novigrad is worth visiting; it has an attractive harbour crowded with local fishing boats and an old town surrounded by fortifications and on the outer side (away from the harbour) a lungamare (promenade) providing a pleasant walk along the coast and an ideal place to sunbathe and swim.

Further down the coast Rovinj is unquestionably the most picturesque of the medieval Venetian towns on the Adriatic. Every guide book features the colourful facades of the tightly packed houses that encircle this tiny peninsula with the cathedral of St Euphemia and its dominating 60 metre bell tower standing over the town.

Pula

Pula is the main regional town in Istria, with a good selection of restaurants and an attractive shopping area. Walk through Pula and experience old town streets and squares some of which were there even in Roman times. The stunning amphitheatre is from the first century AD and ranks the sixth largest in the world. The town centre is about 10 minutes drive from Pula airport.
