About the property

5 en-suite bedrooms, additional guest house at request, organic garden

The Glavini estate has a main house with 5 double bedrooms, with en-suite bathrooms, designed to provide a quiet and relaxed stay. The prices quoted are just for the main Villa. The property with an additional guest house, if needed, 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 a 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 for action, inspiration, relaxation, detox, recharge 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 a 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 enjoy our large 8x4 m pool, relax in the sauna or fitness room and enjoy 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 cherries, a dozen figs and many apples, 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 underfloor 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.

Fantastic birthday gathering

  • 5 of 5

We hired Villa Glavini to celebrate my 50th birthday with female friends. The villa is absolutely gorgeous and was just perfect for our needs. It is located off the beaten track and set in a beautiful, lush valley., with stunning views and great walks for all capabilities.

During our stay we were able to cater for ourselves in the well-equipped kitchen, plus we also arranged a dinner to be made for us by Nebojsa, the owner, on our arrival on the first evening, which was delicious and very welcomed after our long travels to get there.

Nebojsa is absolutely lovely, as is his mum, who came to the villa to provide massages to our party. Nothing was too much trouble during our stay. We arranged with Nebojsa to supply basic foods for us in the villa almost each day, including fresh eggs and bread. We were also able to buy locally produced wine and olive oil from the very friendly farmers in the village and we also enjoyed fantastic pizzas from the small town nearby which you will need a car to get to.

Nebojsa and his brother have created a truly beautiful space in a magical location and I can highly recommend staying at Villa Glavini.

Location, hosts and facilities are top!

  • 5 of 5

Set away from traffic noise and views this property is perfect to relax and wind out from hectic city life. We did tracking to Draguc 60min, this is spot to visit also Motown. Hum all within reach. They also offer great massages. Try some local vine and food. Above all truffles are not to be missed.

Relax, natura e riposo assicurato!!!

  • 5 of 5

Prima di arrivare a Glavini si entra gia' in una dimensione particolare, c'e' un silenzio unico, riposante.

La casa e' molto accogliente, ben arredata e pulita. I padroni di casa sono molto gentili e hanno sempre accontentato le nostre richieste.

C'e' un parco giochi molto carino fatto con materiali di riciclo, dove i bambini si divertono molto. Ci sono molti percorsi pedonali interessanti, tra boschi e villaggi semi abbandonati. C'e' la piscina che non abbiamo utilizzato perche' era un po' fresco, ma immagino sia un vantaggio in estate. Per chi ama la natua, il silenzio e una vita scandita dal ritmo del sole lo consiglio vivamente.

Very relaxing and joyful experience

  • 5 of 5

We had our family holiday at Glavini Eco Village and it was great trill for all of us (11)... Try out some organic food, great vine and olive oil... We tried some hiking to Draguc, about 70min walk with kids, there are also some other trails. Great place for walking, cycling and visiting local attractions... Not to be missed! Thank you Nebojsa and Bojan our great hosts, we will see you again next year!
