Bujici Cottage Rental Photos and Description
Cottage - 1 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 2
Set in a peaceful, rural location on the edge of a tiny village, this well-equipped one-bedroom cottage is set in half an acre (2000m2) of landscaped gardens. Designed specifically as a rustic get-away for couples, it has its own secluded, private garden and terrace complete with BBQ and teak/cane garden furniture. The large (12x5) swimming pool is shared with the owners (an English couple) who live on-site. There is covered parking in a secure, walled courtyard at the front of the owner's house.
Supplies: General supplies like washing-up liquid, clingfilm & kitchen towel are provided, along with a few essentials to get you started - wine, tea, coffee, milk, bread, biscuits etc.
There is a hairdryer (so you don't need to take up luggage space with one!)
The garden: One of the big attractions of this property is its garden which is full of plants and colour. Vines, wisteria, roses, kiwis and bougainvillea trail over shade-providing pergolas and the flower beds are full of interest. Apart from its large swimming pool, the highlight of the garden is its rockery, where a stream runs through a series of waterfalls. The stone-walled, front courtyard is secured by attractive metal gates. Here there is covered parking for 3 cars with plenty of room for other cars elsewhere.
House hunting: The cottage is ideally situated for house hunting across the whole of Istria. The owners, who live on site most of the year, have recently moved to Croatia and are happy to share their house-hunting expertise and put you in touch with reputable local agents, if you should require.

Phil and I are two Brits who settled in Istria in early 2005. Having left the UK in the early 80s to take up jobs in The Netherlands and then Belgium, we ended up running our own small marketing communications agency in Antwerp. After many years beavering frenetically in the corporate jungle, we came to Istria for a more relaxed, outdoor lifestyle: to live somewhere we could have outdoor sofas, lunch on the terrace and an afternoon swim.
We live in the main house at the other end of the garden with our 2 cats (Baggy & Tally). As well as running my small rental business, I also write/run Live Istria - the website for everyone interested in Istria or living in the sun - and when I have time, I love to garden.
We built the Little House for visiting family and friends, but when it is empty we are delighted to welcome other guests.
Over the years we’ve stayed in a lot of self-catering places and we wanted to make the Little House somewhere we would want to stay. Somewhere cosy and comfortable, where everything has been thought of. The sort of place we’d want to come back to time and again.
Probably the Little House's biggest selling point is the pool - it is huge and I think unique for a one bedroom cottage. While you share it with us, you usually have it all to yourselves (we unfortunately are usually too busy to lie by the pool:)).
Many people also say the garden's very special (you'll often find me beavering away somewhere in it), as is the peace and quiet.
Having us on site might, or might not be, seen as a 'unique benefit'. However you view it, our aim is to give you the amount of privacy you require. We're on-hand if you have questions or advice, if not we'll leave you in peace to enjoy your holiday.
