About the Property

5 en-suite bedrooms, additional guest house, pool, wellness & relax spac

Glavini estate has a main house with 5 double bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, designed to provide a quiet and relaxed stay. The property with an additional guest house is capable of accommodating up to 12 guests on a private site of over 30,000 m². The friendly service and high standards will best suit those seeking superior quality in an elegant, natural and tranquil setting.

Except for the functionality we have also tried to make Glavini aesthetically pleasing, while we haven’t changed the au­thentic look and feel of the place. In cooperation with nature and its best fruits, the property fits perfectly within the landscape far from the noise, traffic and crowd.

Glavini Estate is an impec­cable choice for the people desirous of a sincere coexistence with nature and tranquillity.

We can organise and provide local organic food supply & cooking at request. There is also possibility of detox, massage and spa treatments.

Location: It is the perfect location for exploring the delights of Istria, the rest of Croatia, Slovenia (20 km) and Italy (30 km) as well as many tourist spots in the surrounding area.

The property is in sight of the town of Draguc, close to Buzet (12 km), Motovun (12 km) and just 35 km from the sea in any direction (north Trieste, west Porec, Novigrad or south Opatija, Rabac, Rijeka). It sits nestled in a landscape of gentle, rolling hills, rich in Mediterranean flora.

Things to do: Things to do can be unique, refreshing, imaginative, surprising – Glavini Estate and Istria can offer all this and more. Whether you are looking from your holiday action, inspiration, relaxation or want to discover Istrian treasures and people do it your own way and these are just some suggestions.

In autumn we have truffles from nearby woods and it is possible to organise unique ‘truffle hunting’ experiences. In that period we also harvest grapes and olives with organic production of vine and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. In winter from January to March we have unique traditional Istrian Carnival events, with rich entertainment program. The spring is reserved for picking the asparagus and other healthy herbal plants. The summer brings a plenty of choices from visiting the nearby sea resorts south, east and west from us or checking out some of many regional art and cultural festivals.

Estate: Kids are welcome. Guests can swim in our large 8x4 m pool, relax in the sauna or fitness room and enjoying a sweeping view of the landscape. There is also a kid’s playground, table tennis, badminton and bocce (closely related to the game of boules). If you are into cycling, we are in the right spot to access and visit all of Istria.

We have around 300 organically grown olive trees as well as 20 cherry, a dozen fig and many apple, peach, pear and plum trees, all organically produced along with our vegetables which are all at your disposal during your stay, depending on the season.

We believe that we are an integral part of the earth and nature and we use renewable energy as much as we can. The home is fitted with solar collectors with an under floor heating system, run using renewable energy. Water is collected from the roof, so as not to waste precious resources. We are also connected to a natural spring with drinkable fresh water.

About the owner: After completing the Bachelor Degree in Forestry in 1997, studied Postgraduate Degree in Business Management at Greenwich Business School in London. While still at studies, got an offer for a volunteering position from Bradbury Hamilton Financial Analysts and soon after a full time job.For the next eight years worked in London's financial heart,the City of London, being responsible, among other things, for the pension portfolio of large companies such as Tesco, Universal Pictures, Rolls-Roys, where he realised that a real challenge in life is not the transfer of money from fund to fund, thus leaving the City and a promising career in finance. The following year, he travelled around the world and discovered that life and the world is a lot more than daily race with time. After finding out that his daughter has problems with asthma and re-flux, found help in Ayurveda, the science of life, and completed studies for qualified Ayurvedic Consultant at Maharishi University, Iowa, with specialisation at AVN Hospital, Madurai, India.
