Mysterious Istrian legends

Istrian legends, smells and tastes all create a romantic atmosphere. The old legend of Istrian Terra Magica included a very rich Italian family named Bonassini, who had their main residence in this small village, now almost deserted, with only 1 inhabitant, who is at the same time a village’s mayor.

The family Bonassini suddenly died very mysteriously after the second world war, and many inhabitants from villages around it were very sad about it, since the rich family always helped poor inhabitants with food and other support, when times were tough. They even built the stone oven in the middle of their residence (renovated with love and in use again !), where they baked the bread for people in trouble from all the villages around Bonassini’s residence.

After they mysteriously died, the local people decided to create a special micro small village in dear memory of the greatness of this Italian family. Only 5 houses remained in the village, 4 of them being just a summer residence and 1 being constantly inhabited (the mayor). Now additional 6 villas emerged in this little village, one of which is presented here.

The owners of the villas are a group of visionary entrepreneurs, designers, architects, builders and artists. They all share in common an incredible passion and love for Istria.

They set their mind to create a really authentic Croatian villa holiday experience, where the guests (as well as themselves and their friends!) would enjoy the peaceful surroundings, authentic organic materials, beauty of design and a harmony with the nature.

The villa Monet is one of the six luxury villas in Bonasini resort, made with lots of love and passion. Each villa is a unique representation of timeless elegance and all six of them are a glorious project of a team of designers under the guidance of Slovenian artist Barbara Starc.

Her love for unique, special details and natural materials can be seen in ecologically treated wood materials, special lightning and delightful artistic design.

She loves beautiful things. She didn't want her six villas to be just another villa rental - but something special and unique.

Tanja Gutenmorgen purchased this villa in 2012

Both owners have spent their holidays in Istria since childhood. They instantly felt the special energy and peacefulness of the Bonasini village.

Barbara, interior designer and artist, created beautiful decorations, pictures and lighting in the villas. She too fell in love with the peacefulness of the place and she poured her passion for art and creation into these beautiful luxury villas.

- Ecological woods

- no chemical glues

- perfectly peaceful village

- nature all around the villa

- fully serviced upon request

It is the smell of the lavender, rosemary and other herbs all around the village.... The peacefulness of the air, the feeling, that the time has stopped, and a glass of the finest istrian wine accompanying the day turning into the night...

Little charming village near Vodnjan is built from stone with only 10 inhabitant, so it is an oasis of peace and silence. Everyone needing a privacy and physical detachment from the stressful world will find his peace here.

However villas are only 15 minutes drive away from hustle & bustle of long pebble beaches, towns with museums and shopping facilities and tourist attractions.

Make sure to visit Rovinj, the cutest little Venetian town on the Istrian coast, since it shines with charm, art galleries, adorable restaurants with great food and fantastic architecture.

A must see is also Brioni natural park, where famous Yugoslav president Tito had his summer residence. There you will see all kinds of wild animals walking around in perfect harmony with people.

Beaches, golf, tennis, adrenaline parks, water sports and horse riding at your fingertips

Beaches on the western Istrian coast are easily accessible (within twenty minute drive), and the same distance it takes to reach romantic Rovinj and Pula, so you can still decide to create special moments with your family and indulge in:

- finest Istrian restaurants with the exquisite local and sea food cuisine are within ten to twenty minute drive

- truffles. In high truffle season experience of truffle hunting can be provided

- adventure park in Glavani, just 5 km away, is the best adventure park in Istria

- bike routs - more than 50 bike routs all over Istria can be provided upon request

- hiking routs

- delicious wine routs

- Golf experience: 15 minute drive to Fazana and then with boat to Brijuni Golf Course (if you love golf, than Brijuni golf course should definitely be your next destination. On the reconstructed 18 holes of the onetime largest golf course in Europe, you can experience the enchantment of playing amid untouched nature. This rightfully dubbed environmental friendly golf course is truly impressive!).

Great location in Central Istria

Situated in central Istria, Bonasini have great location. The principal towns of the region, Pula, Rovinj and Porec are within a 20-30 minute drive. Only 5 minutes drive away is Vodnjan, where are all facilities and direct access to the fast road to Pula and Trieste Airports are (Ryanair, FlyGlobespan, Thomson, Norwegian Air Shuttle, Tuifly, German Wings, Sterling, Wizzair and many Russian charter flights).

Pebble beaches of the Adriatic coast along with all kinds of water activities are just 10 km away.

The medieval town-monument of St. Vincent is just 8 km away. The old architecture of the town and surrounding villages is well preserved. St. Vincent and its surrounding countryside is well known not only for its historical and cultural legacy but for excellent wine and genuine Istrian cuisine.

The city of Pula with its Roman amphitheatre and Brijuni national park with a 18-hole golf course is just a 14 km away (Fazana) + boat ride. Brijuni golf course is dating from 1922 and it is one of the most fascinating in Croatia. Brijuni golf course numbers 18 green hole within 5.486m length, in a perfect tranquility with company of deer, mouflon, rabbits or peacocks and provide more then impressive atmosphere!

Must see are beautiful cities of Porec with the UNESCO World Heritage Euphrasian Basilica and Rovinj with it's art community and church of St. Euphemias.

Horse riding is available in Manjadvorci: 'Ranch barba Tone', 13 km away.

For a vivid night-life, Porec is best place in whole Istria. Great night club is Lighthouse, in Bale, 10 km.

Why is Istria region so special and why does it have the nick name “Croatian Tuscany”?

The Adriatic below the Alps is central Europe’s closest Mediterranean. This miniature heart-shaped world of magical Istria is the largest peninsula of the Adriatic Sea. Its idyllic geographical position has perfectly arranged seasons - lush greenery springs, colorful autumns, pleasant summers and mild winters.

The dreamlike nature, almost mythical landscapes and gorgeous medieval towns of central Istria will awake within you the primeval and deep, true pleasure! Central Istria is one of the rare Mediterranean regions adorned with the quality of unspoiled natural landscapes and rich heritage.

Numerous coves and hillocks connect and divide many magic-like settlements, creating almost unreal scenery.

As you get to know Istria you will notice more and more enchanting details: church facades and portals, tiny village alleyways with their specific architectural touches. Everything is warm–hearted and friendly here: nature, towns and people.

Istria is indeed a feast for the eyes. Its streams flow to the sea through deep valleys and gullies which bring to mind the ancient local myths about giants. Rolling hills overlook the fields and valleys with little towns perched on the peaks, recalling some old paintings.
