COTTAGE WITH LARGE POOL

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.

Nicky Anson purchased this cottage in 2005

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.

Idyllic property in perfect location

  • 5 of 5
The 'Little House' was the most perfect location for our first visit to Croatia with Nicky and Phil being the perfect hosts. We arrived a little later than planned and to say that the welcome pack was appreciated is an understatement!
The property has everything (and more) that you need if you wish to stay put and enjoy the pool and fantastic gardens which are fabulous.
It was within easy reach of Porec and other stunning locations and you would be sorry if you didn't follow some of the suggested drives and places to visit mentioned in the excellent reference guide put together by Nicky - notably Draguc, Roc, Motovun and Groznjan. The caves at Baredine were also worth a visit.
Eating out was fantastic and, again, take note of those suggested in the guide but Kanoba Monica and San Lorenzo Pizzeria can be highly recommended.
Phil and Nicky have the balance spot on – available if needed but keeping out of your way if not – but you would be daft not to use the local information that they have readily available.
It's probably the best property we've stayed in over the last 14 years of doing self-catering and a credit to the owners – thanks for allowing us to spend two weeks sharing your paradise.

Great find

  • 5 of 5
Perfect little house for two people in a delightful setting - privacy but with the advantage of a large pool and beautiful, spacious, much loved garden. Nicky's comprehensive guide to Istria was invaluable in ensuring we got the most out of exploring the area. A memorable stay, thoroughly recommended.

Fab little house in the country

  • 5 of 5
Tucked away but so near to major roads this little house is an idyllic hidaway with everything you need for a totally relaxed holiday. Phil and Nicky are great they have the balance totally right they are discretely available if you need them but otherwise they leave you to enjoy your break. The gardens and pool are gorgeous and thankfully we had a couple of lovely days that we could enjoy lying by the pool.
We loved visiting the hilltop towns of groznjan and motuvan and Rovinj is just gorgeous.
We would have no hesitation recommending this little house and wish them every success.

Ideal SPot

  • 5 of 5
Just back from a wonderful week in Istria. The Little House was the perfect location for exploring Istria, whilst at the same time providing a perfect haven for relaxation. We found the cottage contained all we needed to make our stay comfortable, so whilst the owners were readily availble to help out with anything, we found we did not need to call on them. The cottage/ownes also provided plenty of materials to help us with finding the best local places to visit and some great restaurant recommendations.

lovely cottage

  • 4 of 5
This was a delightful cottage that lived up to its description. Friendly welcome from knowledgeable owners. Lots of extras, such as washing up liquid, basic foods, maps and guidebooks. Would definitely recommend to another couple.

Our holiday HOME

  • 5 of 5
We found THE LITTLE HOUSE in 2007, having previously stayed in various hotels in Porec since 1999/2000. It proved to be everything Nicky and Phil said it was. PEACEFUL, great location (minutes drive to and from town, but far enough away from the touristy hustle), COMFORTABLE, 1st class accommodation (every need catered for), and the luxury of having use of the SWIMMING POOL (shared only with the owners).
We loved staying at The Little House in '07 and '08 and if work commitments hadn't got in the way, we would have been back in '09. Nicky and Phil are great hosts and are only too willing to give help and advice, or if you prefer, will respect your right to privacy and leave you to do your own thing. We enjoy visiting friends when in Porec and staying at the Little House means we can invite them back, if we choose, and can entertain on our own patio (even the barbecue grill is provided). During the day we can lounge in the sun in any part of our very own garden around the house. If we tire of this, we can go exploring the beautiful countryside or visit some of the interesting historical/cultural places and events, be they near base or further afield. Matulini is a lovely little hammlet and has some interesting and enjoyable walks if you want to stay near home, or just fancy a stroll in the evening. The people in the neighbourhood are very sociable and enjoy passing the time of day with you, however a little knowledge of the Croatian language would be of advantage in some cases!
We will miss not being at the Little house this year and will miss seeing our friends. BUT WE'LL BE BACK.

Lying on the edge of Matulini, a tiny village of 20 houses, the cottage is surrounded by woodland and old vineyards. It is reached down a rural lane which circles the village and goes out the way it came. Quiet and rural, this peaceful location is only 10 minutes drive from Porec with its numerous restaurants and beaches. Located close to the new north-south main road and the east-west, Porec-Pazin road it is also ideally situated for sightseeing and house hunting across the whole of Istria. Basic shops are only a few minutes drive away (3-5 km) and there is a large supermarket in Porec. There are many good restaurants in the area.

Please note the Google map is not completely accurate. The road to the village is a no-through road which simply loops round the village.
