About Annabel Champ (owner)
Hi, my husband, Simon, and I live in London and own and manage the lettings of our three villas in Istria, Croatia. We like to stay in at least one of them two or three times a year, with our young daughter, families and friends. When we're not staying there, I manage the rental of each of the villas, whilst also looking after our toddler! I try to provide a friendly and personalised service, for instance, we send each of our guests a comprehensive Guidebook that we and our local representative in Istria, have written together made up of all our favourite restaurants, things to do and places to see, along with useful information about nearest shops and banks and their opening times etc. We love it out there and hope that you get the opportunity to experience it to.

Why Annabel Champ (owner) chose Buzet
The area is fabulous, lots of gorgeous views, near to a small village by foot or 10 minutes by car to the nearest town.
What makes this Villa unique
This is a gorgeous villa suitable either for couples or one or two families. The villa is situated right by a small village which sells gorgeous red wine and there is a little restaurant which is very convenient. A 15 minute walk down the road there is an amazing gastronomic restaurant which serves fabulous 5 course meals in its lovely garden, perfect for a relaxing afternoon with the kids playing in the garden. There are three other villas in the same plot of land, owned by different people, all with there own pools and gardens and we can liaise with other owners should you wish to hire more than one villa at a time - perfect for large families.

We recommend flying to one of these airports and then hiring a car: Pula Airport (in Croatia) is 30 miles from our villas. Ryan Air flies there from Stansted. Monarch Airways have just launched a new service that flies between Pula and Gatwick on a Saturday. Trieste (in Italy) is 60 miles away. Ryan Air flies there daily in the summer from Stansted from £9.99 each way. Ljublijana (in Slovenia) is 80 miles away. Easy jet flies there daily in the summer from £35.
You are based on the edge of the tiny hilltop village of Sovinjak, 10 minute drive down the hill to Buzet for provisions. Restaurants range from a short walk to a long cycle (or a drive to explore further afield).
We are within a short drive of the annual hot air balloon festival, a film festival and a host of cultural events.
