Groznjan villa description

The peninsular of Istria is a gem on the scale of Cornwall but with a Mediterranean climate. Set among vineyards and olive groves in the hills of central Istria the house has views across open country with the church spires of other villages dotting the romantic landscape. Sitting in the middle of its own grounds the newly restored south facing house has gardens with walnut, figs and vines surrounding the 12 metre pool with summer house and sunbathing terraces. Local restaurants serve Istrian truffles with steak or fusilli, farm dried hams, sheep’s cheese, wild boar with pasta, raw fish gazpacho as well as sea food caught daily and fantastic local wines. Spend the morning by the pool and drive to the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic for the afternoon. On the way home you can visit the nearby Venetian hill towns to explore new restaurants.

How to get there: There are several routes:

There is a Ryanair service direct to Pula which gives the shortest transfer of 40 minutes in Istria
Ryanair from Stanstead to Trieste (2 hour transfer) A car can be hired from Peter Kesic on 0038641505361 or 00385912509351 land line 0028651711996, fax 0038656747139 email and mention that you are staying in Mocitada .Easyjet and Ryanair fly to Venice and there is a daily boat run by Kompas or Venezialine from Venice to Porec.This can be booked through any local travel agent. Every day it leaves at 5 o'clock local time from Venice and on the return leaves Porec at 8 o'clock in the morning. A great way to include a day in Venice in the holiday.

Croatia Airlines,Ryanair and many charter companies also fly to Pula which is 40 minutes drive from the house.

testimonial: Just a quick update since our visit to istria
We thought the location and the house were wonderful - we have been on multi-family villa holidays for 20 years now, and this was close to the top of our league - well done!
Definitely the best pool we have had, and the pool house and shade were very welcome.
Top day-trips we recommend were to Grosjnan, and to Rovinj + Red Island by boat.
