Property description

In the small medieval Istrian village of Sovinjak, Casa ValSol was built in 2007 with both reclaimed and modern material, the villa offers spacious accommodation for 8 persons. Ideal for large groups or two families.
Large kitchen/diner leading onto covered terrace overlooking the pool and the lush green scenery beyond. Spacious living room with traditional open fireplace, satellite TV, internet and doors to pool terrace. Within 200m walking distance of the local family run restaurant, Santa Terra, the villa is also a truly quiet retreat from both daily working life and from the more hectic tourist towns and yet is within easy travelling distance of all that Istria has to offer.

A Welcome Refreshment Pack is there for your arrival and our professional Management Service team can help you organise a variety of outings and activities including: private chef * bike tours * wine/olive oil tours * boat excursions * horse riding * kayak tours * paddleboarding * truffle hunting * poolside massages * spa treatments * venice day trip *

The nearest town is Buzet, the 'City of Truffles', and the villa is also close to the famous Toklarija restaurant, a tiny place carved out of an old olive mill in the wine-growing hamlet of Sovinjsko Polje

On a historical note, Sovinjak is reputed to be the place that provided the wife of the Emperor Augustus with her preferred wine and the village is also the place of the world's first ever bauxite mine! (No longer active!)

The villa is located on the edge of the hilltop village of Sovinjak, 300 meters above sea level. Built into the hillside, the villa has 180 degree views over the rolling hills and nearby hilltop towns.

Sovinjak is located near the town of Buzet, between the cosy east coast and the marvellous west coast. This area has some of Istria's best restaurants, with their truffle specialities. There is also a small konoba in the village, about 200m from the villa. The valley is one of the best truffle, olive oil and wine districts of Croatia. Within a 20 minute drive are the artistic medieval hilltop villages of Motovun (film festival) and Groznjan (art and ceramic). The old aristocratic city of Opatija is also only 45 minutes from the villa.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2007

About: We use the villa for our own recreation, and rent it out to other families when not in use by ourselves. We bought the villa new in 2007. When we are not in the villa, it is taken care of by a very nice English lady. She takes care of the villa, and guides and help our renters during their vacation. Families that have rented our villa, have all been pleased with their stay, and we make pride in pleasing every family who stays in our villa.
