4 Bedroom Istrian House with Pool in Smolici, sleeps 8
This charming country house is situated in the heart of the Istrian countryside. With its delightful garden and outdoor entertaining area, the villa would suit two families or a group looking to relax and unwind in peaceful, rural surroundings just at the edge of the sleepy village of Smolici.
The villa is approached along a country road and into a rear drive. Guests enter the villa on the ground floor directly into a lounge/dining room with a traditional fireplace separated from the kitchen by attractive, rustic archways. A wooden staircase leads up to a first floor landing and a door from the landing leads out to a rear covered terrace. The remaining rooms are comprised of two double bedrooms, another small double room, one twin, a family bathroom and additional shower room.
At the end of the first floor terrace, there is a covered well and steps leading down to the garden located at the front of the house via a vine shaded seating area. The garden features a well-stocked fruit and vegetable patch and an orchard from which guests can help themselves to various fruits on offer including cherries and apples.
There is also an attractive private pool and summer kitchen/covered eating area with a traditional BBQ, perfect for sampling the fresh, local produce including freshly delivered chicken and eggs. Discrete owners use the private villa next door which does not encroach on guest stays.
Car hire is recommended at this villa and would enable guests to make the most of the local area and all the attractions that it has to offer. Those seeking adventure and an “adrenaline kick” can explore the popular Glavani Park in Barban. If relaxation is the order of the day then the local seaside town of Poreč, home to the UNESCO protected Euphrasian Basilica and a departure point for excursions to Venice, provides the perfect distraction.
