4 Bedroom Istrian Stone Villa with Pool, sleeps 8-10
This delightful stone villa with pool is located within easy access of the historical cities of Vodnjan and Pula. Decorated in a typical country style with partially exposed stone walls and oak beamed ceilings, the villa would suit a large family/two families travelling together or couples/friends who wish to experience the peace and quiet of rural Istria yet be within easy reach of historical cities and beaches.
Guests enter the property from a country road and into a driveway from where the main entrance door leads into a hallway which contains a downstairs shower room. A door from the hallway leads into a brightly decorated lounge which contains an Istrian stone fireplace. An archway from the lounge leads into a well equipped open-plan country kitchen-dining room. Stairs from the kitchen lead to the first floor which contains two double bedrooms with en-suite shower rooms, a further double bedroom and separate family shower room. The second floor contains a twin (attic) room featuring two additional pull-out beds. French doors from the lounge lead out into a courtyard garden which features a summer kitchen and outdoor eating area and a short pathway down the side of the summer kitchen leads to the swimming pool.
Car hire is recommended. In Vodnjan guests will find a grocery shop and a small selection of restaurants. Areas of interest within the region include the Medieval Hill top towns of Motovun and Groznjan as well as the seaside towns of Porec, Rovinj and Vrsar. A little nearer, the Brijuni islands, the Roman amphitheatre in Pula and a day trip to Venice are all recommended excursions that are available from this area.

The village was lovely.
Stayed May 2008
Johanna and the owner were very friendly and helpful. Johanna recommended us beautiful places to go and see. She was amazing representative. We loved her for her professional manner.
I have got few comments for you. I was strongly disappointed as swimming pool haven't had a jacuzzi as per your page specification. When we arrived at the villa we were looking for it everywhere until the agent said there's no jacuzzi at the place. This misleading information is still on your page therefore I will recommend to remove that from the below page: www.croatianvillas.com/accommodation/istrian-villa-pool-is027#BookOnline Built : 1906 Last Renovated : 2004 Area : 170 Sqm Frequency of Linen/towel Change : Once a week Maximum No. Cars : 2 Pool Size : 10m x 5m Pool Comments : Pool + Jacuzzi Pool open 15 April - 31 Oct Also we had mice in the house and you could find a droppings all over the kitchen dishes which was quite uncomfortable. We found few scorpions in the rooms upstairs and I would strongly recommend to warn all families with little babies staying at the villa. Last thing we had an owl at the property on the last day which made our stay quite uncomfortable as we couldn't even finish our breakfast and we left the property rushing.
Impressed with:Nice people, amazing food and great beaches.
Not impressed with: Scorpions,
Recommend: I would recommend all to go to Rovinj, Porec.
Comments. Jacuzzi has been removed. Since the guest stay, our own team have stayed at this villa and have not found any evidence of rodents. As in other Mediterranean destinations, Scorpions do exist in Istria although they are not common to see and are of the non-venomous variety. Owls are harmless and we are sorry to read you were alarmed by them.
