Groznjan villa description

This stunning holiday villa is set in the Istrian hills, offering panoramic views, luxurious furnishings, private swimming pool and, above all, an atmosphere of such tranquility that occupants have no choice but to switch off from city life.
The villa has been developed by the award-winning Andreas Dussmann, which means that it displays an exceptional sense of style and attention to detail.
The property is available for hire on a weekly basis from Saturday to Saturday throughout the year. Among its many luxurious features, it provides Egyptian cotton sheets, sumptuous Italian garden furniture, a fully fitted kitchen, satellite Total TV, and several bikes to allow you to explore Istria.
It sleeps ten, and each of the five bedrooms has easy access to a bathroom/shower room, one of which is en suite.
We will help you choose the best flights, hire a car, and can even organize shopping on your arrival. We have contacts through Istria who can recommend the best restaurants.

Open plan kitchen and dining with a big lounge in a separate room but with a large opening into it from the kitchen. There is satellite Total TV, dining area, sofas, fireplace and huge doors opening out onto the veranda with wonderful views.

Special Interest: This is an area renowned for its cuisine and we car arrange for a celebrity chef to come and cook for you in the villa. There is an annual film festival and a hot air balloon festival. Walking and cycling trips can be arranged from the villa.

Travel: Pula Airport (in Croatia) is 30 miles from our villas. Ryanair flies there from Stanstead and Monarch from Gatwick. You can also fly to Trieste with Ryanair, an hour's drive from the villa
