Location is close to the famous Brijuni Islands National Park, lively Pula, ancient Vodnjan, chic Rovinji and the stunning Adriatic coast. This incredibly well situated property is in the heart of the rich fertile Istrian countryside with its vineyards and olive groves. The villa combines a peaceful and communal setting together with easy access to major attractions and amenities. Combine the local Venetian influenced Istrian cuisine with your own cooking on the barbecue. The villa has views of the Brijuni Islands from the first floor pergola style balcony and has its own traditional stone fireplace for wood. Air-conditioning and central heating are provided. The villa allows both a rural and coastal holiday any time of the year.

Golf: A brand new Jack Nicklaus designed course is being developed within 15 minutes of the villa and is due for completion in 2015/16. This will make the villa a desirable location during the winter as well as the summer months. There is also a golf course on the Brijuni Islands a 10 minute boat trip from nearby Fazana.

Ski: There are two ski resorts which can be used in the winter season. Platak north of Rejeka is a 2 hour drive. Further inland is Bjelolasica. Both of these resorts provide opportunities to experience both rural Istria and skiing in the winter. There is plenty of skiing in Slovenia which is easily accessed by flying to Ljubljana if you want to have a two resort break. This is becoming popular.
