Situated in a beautiful rural location by the famous wine producing hamlet of Bajkini, approximately 300m above sea level, Villa Olivia offers you a peaceful and quiet location with a vista of rolling hills to the sea – on a clear day Venice and the Alps can be seen.
Many of Istria’s top wine producers are within walking distance or a short drive from the villa e.g. Franc Arman, Arman, Rossi, Pinot Rossi, Pilato….
The Roman coastal town of Poreč, and the hilltop towns of Motovun and Grožnjan are a short drive away and have many lovely restaurants serving authentic Istrian food. Along the way you will spot Konobas, family run restaurants that also offer authentic cuisine.
Description of the Villa:
The ground floor has a large light and airy lounge and similarly proportioned dining room which is adjoined through an arch way to a modern kitchen. Covered terraces run along the length of the rear and include outdoor furniture for dining and relaxing.
Just a few paces from the villa is the 10x5m tiled heated pool (£100.00 GBP supplement per week for heating the pool to cover electricity costs) with Roman steps and a border of lavender bushes, which lightly scent the air. After taking a refreshing swim choose one of 6 loungers on the sun terrace for developing a tan. The garden is grassed, elevated and screened for privacy using trees and bushes. Upstairs there are three double bedrooms all with en-suite bathroom or shower. The master bedroom has its own balcony for secluded sunbathing.
The villa rental includes, tourist tax, utilities, air conditioning (central heating), free Wi-Fi and a Welcome Pack.
Villa Olivia was featured as a five page Case Study in the 'Place in the Sun Magazine' and in a four page feature article on Istria in 'Holiday Villas Magazine' UK.
An information pack will be available in the villa providing full details of attractions and best restaurants to try out.
The villa was originally designed for the personal use of Dussmann Homes directors and to be a show home for their award winning property developments. It therefore has many additional design features and exceptional build quality.
Please note that smoking is not permitted inside the villa building for health and safety and insurance reasons. Smoking is allowed on covered terraces, sun terraces, balcony and in the garden.
