Property description

'Villa Viera' is a stone house from 1909, with five rooms for 10+2 persons. There is also a separate suite for 2 +1 persons.

The house has been nicely renovated into a romantic villa representing a real stone jewel of old Istrian architecture. Each room is decorated in a different style preserving old beams, wooden arches and original stones and details. Old house's charm has been combined with modern comfort.

The villa is equipped with solar- energy- heated swimming pool which is the first in central Istria and ideal for swimming in spring and autumn.

The living room with a large stone terrace offers a panoramic view of central Istria, often called 'Istrian Tuscany'. There is also a pergola with a large table inviting you to enjoy morning or evening meals in your company. The eyes that can watch and the ears that can listen may discover and experience the magic of Istria, songs of nightingales, swallows, blackbirds, owls and other sounds of Istrian nature.

Besides the terrace there is the ethno kitchen with old Istrian tools, kitchenware, large collapsible barbecue. Within the 'Villa Viera' there are two air- conditioned stone rooms soundproof for 60 decibels, intended for various parties such as engagement parties, honeymoons, wedding anniversaries, birthdays and other jubilees.

In front of the terrace there is a large solar- energy- heated swimming pool, drenched in Mediterranean sun from sunrise to sunset. The water is so pure that bees and swallows drink it from the pool. In the vicinity there is an even older stone house from 1879, 'Villa Bolterstein' with a big Istrian cellar, available to the guests of 'Villa Viera'. In this villa there is a suite for 2 + 1 persons.

Companies of friends of up to 15 persons can rent both villas.

There are 4 parking places near the villa. You have 2+2+2 Bikes on service

'Villa Viera' is located at a ridge where two climatic zones meet: Mediterranean and continental. This ridge is about 20 km long and it stretches from Pazin to Buzet. It spreads extraordinary positive energy making this place a perfect one for nature lovers.
This is felt by many guests, particularly elderly persons who claim they 'sleep like babies' in 'Villa Viera'.

In vicinity of the villa there is a playground and several minutes away there are also Mirna waterfalls- Kotle.

The sea is not far, a 45- minute drive from 'Villa Viera' will take you to any Istrian beach, which are among the nicest in the Adriatic. You can enjoy summer programs for your family on these beaches.

The area is also famous for the Istrian truffle. Good food and drink have a long tradition here.
