Wonderful house in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

Situated up the road to a small hilltop town (Vrh), Villa Monte is surrounded by small vineyards and rolling hills in a private, beautiful and peaceful rural setting. We really enjoyed relaxing in one of the many outdoor areas in the sun or the shade, and always found great views over the green and varied surroundings (don´t miss the great sunsets over the medieval town of Motovun!). The house is built in Istrian stone but contrary to many older stonehouses it is very bright and roomy inside with high ceiling and lots of big windows and glassed doors. The interior was spotless and very comfortable. The open plan livingroom was great for socialising and the kitchen perfectly equipped. All the bedrooms were great but the two bedrooms with direct access to the terrace/ pool were more than we ever hoped for. Waking up and taking a morning swim in our own pool just a few steps from the bedroom with the sun shining, birds singing and great views for miles was simply incredible! There is sun from dawn to dusk but also great outdoor areas that are shaded. We made day trips all over Istria and nothing was more than an hours´ drive. Beautiful and historic Motovun and Groznan were only 15-20 minutes away. Novigrad was a pleasant surprise, almost a miniRovinj but with a lot fewer tourists 25 minutes away by the sea. Our favorite restaurant was the family run Konoba 2 km up the hill in Vrh with beef to die for! We found Villa Monte to be a genuine five star accommodation and did not want to leave! Finally a big thanks to Barbara and Andrej who made sure our stay was such a complete success! We will definitely be back next year. If you are looking for a truly wonderful place for you and your family/ friends away from the busy holiday crowds Villa Monte is it!

It is also perfectly positioned for easy access to the beautiful Istrian coastline with excellent beaches and fishing villages for wind-surfing, diving etc and with any number of excellent restaurants in all directions. Horseback riding, go-carting, ballooning and biking are also readily available. We can organize one-day boat trip to Venice as well.
