Property type villa


About the property

Sleeps 6-8, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms.

A new, traditional, brown-shuttered, Istrian stone villa, built to a high standard of style and comfort. There is a pretty Mediterranean garden with own pool, sunbathing terrace and outdoor dining area. Inside, the villa is light and bright, with a pleasant beach themed décor of pale greens, creams and whites. Each room is individually air-conditioned and all bedrooms have satellite TV. The villa is in a lovely location, in a gated village of twelve similar villas, and very close to two villages which have shops, cafes, restaurants and tennis courts.

Take a leisurely 25-30 minute walk to a long sandy beach in Medulin, or just a few minutes drive by car. There you can stop off and pick-up fantastic ice-cream, buy some fresh rolls from the bakery, then figs and parma ham, and you are all set for a beach picnic.

The local airport Pula is just 30 min drive, so this villa combines all the comforts of a good holiday, great location, great accommodation, closeness to sea and transport. Car is not essential, but recommended. There is parking for two cars.


The villa is arranged on two floors and is surrounded by a private garden, fenced with stone and wrought iron fence.

Ground floor

The ground floor area is open plan and the entrance is directly into a small hallway and the kitchen/diner. The ground floor consist of a spacious sitting area with pale wood flooring and doorway onto the garden, the kitchen/diner, utility with a washing machine, downstairs shower room and double bedroom. The kitchen/diner and the shower have underfloor heated stone tiles. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge/freezer, gas cooker, dishwasher, kettle, coffee machine, toaster, cooking utensils, tableware, glasses and cutlery. There is also an attractive country style dining table and chairs.

From the kitchen three steps lead down into the sunny sitting room with two large cream sofas and a coffee table arranged around a modern fireplace. There is a satellite TV/DVD and WiFi internet is provided. The owners have provided tasteful pictures and decorative artwork, and with the exposed wooden ceiling beams and direct access to the garden/pool area, it makes it a very pleasant room to sit and relax during both the daytime and evening. One of the doors of the sitting room opens out onto the covered terrace with two separate outdoor sitting areas and a sunbathing patio with sun loungers.

At the other end of the ground floor is a double bedroom with a comfortable double bed, wardrobe, TV and wood flooring. Across the hallway there is a utility cupboard and a separate smart modern shower room.

First floor

The first floor is reached by a wooden staircase which leads to a small hallway and two bedrooms. The bedrooms have wood flooring, exposed wooden ceiling beams and comfortable beds. The main bedroom is double aspect, with a large double bed, plenty of storage space and its own balcony with views over the countryside and the village. The second upstairs bedroom has twin beds and looks over the countryside with the sea in the distance. These two rooms share a spacious bathroom which has a corner bath tub with a hand held shower. All bed linen and bathroom towels are provided.


The villas are surrounded by a landscaped, well walled garden of 400 square metres, with stone paved terraces, planted with Mediterranean shrubs and herbs and wooden pergolas with climbing plants for shade. To one side of the garden is a 22 square metre swimming pool with wide steps leading into the pool and a sunbathing area with modern sun loungers. On the terrace area there is a BBQ and an outside dining table and chairs.

This really is a lovely villa and great for families, singles and couples alike.

Superb villa

  • 5 of 5

The description of the villa was exactly accurate. All listed facilities were in place. This spacious property was clean and well maintained. We enjoyed our stay very much in Villa Zephyra. The manager was really kind - he gave us his Italian style coffee maker to use during our stay (the only object we missed from the kitchen items provided). The place we most liked to go to eat was a small konoba on the beach near Liznjan.

A minor disadvantage is that the houses are close to each other and therefore if the neibours are loud you hear them from close - which happened to us.

Owner's Response: Dear Janina Thank you for this lovely review of villa Zephyra and your stay in the Istria area. We have a kind and dedicated manager there, so many people praise him and thank you for that. This is a very popular area of Croatia, great for families, and has lots of activities. We have provided coffee making equipment now as we are keen to provide everything our guests require. Hope to see you in the future Kind regards Laida
