Istria is made of lush rolling hills adorned with productive vineyards and scattered with charming, ancient medieval villages, which makes touring the countryside by car, foot or bicycle a real pleasure from a holiday villa in Istria. There are a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites to be discovered, like the Roman amphitheatre, preserved mummies and traditional fishing ports.

cozy and quiet hidden gem

5 of 5
The house is situated in between wine yards in a hilly area not far from Buzet, therfore a car is indispensable. It is very nicely and new furnished and provides all necessay amities, like e.g. dish washer, air condition, washing machine, satellite tv. In addition, all kinds of shampoos, sopas, dish detergent, toilett paper, kleenex and even anti insect products were available in the house. Furthermore, it is extremly clean and the hosts cleaned it up during our stay and provided new bed linnen and towels (bath and pool). A pro pos hosts, we never experienced so nice, warm hearted, open, helpful, and supporting hosts like Viviana and her son Luca. The terraces and garden are nicely decorated and well done. The stone barbeque in the garden works very good and the hosts provided even charcoal and wood. The pool is cleaned by the owners once a week.
