Property description

The villa is situated beneath the Motovun town walls, on the hill dominating the wonderful Mirna river valley. It overlooks the ancient Motovun oak forest rich with truffles, mushrooms of sublime taste, and the slopes where grapes for famous Istrian wines are grown. The interior is spacious (350 m2) and has been beautifully furnished and decorated with attention to details. The villa surroundings, with olive trees and a small vineyard, give complete privacy around the stone decked pool. A covered terrace with a barbecue provides the perfect outside dining area by the pool from where you can enjoy sunsets over the valley. Motovun legends, smells and tastes all came together into a distinct atmosphere that also rubbed off the Dolce Vita. The romantic villa is available for rent all year round.

There's a number of low cost companies flying to Pula (PUY) from all over Europe, and you can hire a car from several companies at the airport. Alternative airports are Rijeka, Trieste, Ljubljana and Venice.

If you are getting here by car - Motovun is very easy to find and once there you just can't miss the villa.

Aditional services: You can rent a mountain bike for around 12 EUR per day (including insurance) and take it on the wonderful 'Parenzana' trail which passes just under the villa. The trail used to be an old railroad and it goes thru vineyards and forests with the tunnels and bridges still preserved.
Cook and cleaning service are available.
