The villa is approached along a country road to the parking area, set to the side of the villa.

A traditional Istrian Pila Stone loggia leads from the dining area to two cottages, each with two bedrooms.

Stairs lead to a first floor study area on the landing, leading through to a second double bedroom with ensuite shower room and balcony with distant sea views. The second cottage is accessed from the end of the loggia. Two steps lead down from the loggia to the ground floor, with country-style kitchen with beamed ceilings and dining table (no oven). A side terrace can be accessed from the kitchen. A separate WC can also be found on this level. Stairs lead from the ground floor entrance hall up to the first floor and second floor (eaves), each with double bedroom and ensuite shower room. An additional bed for 1 person can be added on request to these double rooms.
From the loggia and side terrace, c.a. 25 steps lead down to the pool and spa & wellness centre. The stunning infinity pool, heated on request (additional supplement) gives way to magnificent views to Slovenia, Umag and the sea in the distance. A Spa & Wellness centre lies to the side of the pool, set over two floors. Guests enter from the pool terrace to a lounge area with sunken Jacuzzi and dressing room, leading to a steam room and sauna. A separate WC and separate shower room can also be found on this level. Internal stairs lead to the first floor indoor lounge area with day beds and Satellite TV, leading to an upper terrace with sun loungers and panoramic countryside views.
The pool terrace leads down 15 steps to the tiered Italian gardens, set over two levels. A dining terrace with canopy shading leads to an internal summer kitchen equipped with wine refrigerator, plus a separate WC. Approx. 15 steps lead down to the lower lawned hedged garden, with stone bench and space for games.
