LUXURY STONE VILLA WITH PRIVATE POOL IN TRANQUIL COUNTRYSIDE LOCATION IN ISTRIA

Orbani Villa Rental Photos and Description

Beautiful house, 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms sleeps 6/7, close to Porec & Rovinj

This enchanting property with private swimming pool and beautiful stone architecture blends in with the unspoilt countryside. Villa Erin is nestled down a quiet country lane at the edge of the peaceful Hamlet of Radici, yet only a short drive from the coast.

A newly built luxury stone house incorporating original features such as exposed stone walls, terracotta floors, traditional Istrian fireplace and oak beams create a special atmosphere and character.

Villa Erin is a spacious, light and airy south facing property, not overlooked, furnished to the highest standards with all the comforts you would expect from your own home.

A modern kitchen equipped with a full range of appliances shares the ground floor with a double bedroom, twin bedroom, shower room and an inviting open plan living/dining room. The master bedroom with ensuite bathroom and private terrace is upstairs.

Villa Erin is the ideal choice to get away from it all, a chance to relax and unwind in a tranquil location.

Istria has emerged as a must visit destination and was placed number 2 in Lonely Planet’s top 10 regions for 2011 and was named as “best of the world” for 2012 in National Geographic.

Located across the Adriatic sea from Venice, Istria is a heart shaped peninsula hanging in the Adriatic like a bunch of grapes between Croatia and Italy. A land of picture perfect medieval hilltop villages, miles of vineyards, spectacular scenery, historical heritage treasures, stunning coastal towns, a wonderful coastline, with amazing food and wines.

Istria is fast becoming a gourmet’s paradise. The focus here is on fresh, quality ingredients prepared in the old fashioned way where you can savor the most exquisite of Croatia's cuisines. The region boasts fantastic seafood, pasta, olive oil, Croatian prsut (prosciutto), wild asparagus, truffles and much more. Istrian wine is another gastronomic secret. The rich, fertile Istrian soil provides excellent conditions for wine makers to produce the likes of the red Teran and unpretentious Malvasia whites.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Hi Siobhan

Just want to thank you for the wonderful break we had in Villa Erin. We feel so chilled and relaxed after our stay. The sound of the birds singing all day long was just lovely. The house was very well equipped and comfortable. It didn't feel like a holiday villa, it was even better than you described. The only negative was we didn't want to leave! Hope we will return one day.

As advertised the property is a handy 35 min drive from the airport .Located 4km from the historic village of Sv.Lorenc it is extremely well-equiped with everthing a family would require,Wi-Fi included .This stunning house,pool and immediate countryside are the perfect anecdote to life's stresses .
Not once did our four children 8,10,11 and 14 ask to put the television on .Days spent lazing by the pool, strolling through the Idyllic towns of Roving and Porec (ice-cream in hand),swimming in the Adriatic, boat-trip around the islands and of course the obligatory trip to the Waterpark, Istrialand ,highly recommended by all the kids and adults alike . .All within a 25 min drive from the house.
Bar-B-Q by the pool local sausages a must,Pork in Flengi,Calamari in Ilado,fish platter overlooking the picturesque Limski Canal .We were spoilt for choice with all the road-side restaurants .Also, it has to be mentioned regardless of where we went for a spin ,we encountered no traffic and thus were more able to enjoy the stunning country-side vistas
This holiday exceeded all our expectations .Without any hesitation I would highly recommend this gem of a property Villa Erin to anybody looking to recharge their batteries .

Gorgeous villa in a great location!

  • 5 of 5
We really enjoyed our stay in Villa Erin. The house is in a beautiful, peaceful and private location; with all the attractions of Istria just a short drive away. The house is very comfortable and I was pleased to see it was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. Everything we needed or could think of was provided. The listing description is accurate regarding the location and facilities; I would say that it looked even better than the photos.
The owner, Siobhan, was very prompt in her emails and helpful in answering my many questions. I would highly recommend Villa Erin.
Thank you Siobhan for a great holiday.

Beautiful villa in an idyllic rural setting

  • 4 of 5
As a family of 5 (with 3 daughters, 18, 16 & 11), the villa provided everything we had hoped for - comfort, privacy and an excellent base to explore Istria (a car is essential). The villa was very well equipped, clean and picturesque. Spending time around the pool was brilliant.
We really enjoyed exploring places like Rovinj, Porec, Vrsar and Pula (all within a 20 min drive max). The sea around Istria is so clear and therefore incredible for swimming (although worth noting, there are very few sandy beaches - not necessarily a bad thing!). There are lots of water based activities and boat trips on offer around the coast.
The nearest village, which includes a great restaurant, Lorenzos, plus a couple of small supermarkets and a bakery, is about 4km from the villa.
The owner of the villa was incredibly helpful during the enquiry and booking process, and provided lots of information on places to visit and things to do in the area (there is also a great info pack at the villa itself).
I would definitely recommend this property and would love to return for another stay at Villa Erin.

Sagenhaft!

  • 5 of 5
unser Aufenthalt in der Villa Erin auf Istrien war einfach herrlich. Das Haus ist perfekt – sehr sauber, sehr gepflegt und sehr schön eingerichtet. Alles was wir während unseres Urlaubs gebraucht haben, war vorhanden. Die Einrichtung ist sehr geschmackvoll und die Villa sieht noch viel schöner aus, als auf den Bildern der Website. Wir haben besonders die ruhige Lage genossen. Istrien ist einfach eine wunderschöne Gegend.

Wir möchten uns für den tollen Urlaub und den überaus freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Service auch vor Ort bedanken. Wir werden bestimmt wiederkommen und in jedem Fall die Villa Erin weiter empfehlen.

quiet and peaceful

  • 4 of 5
The villa is very quiet and peaceful with a view of trees almost surrounding it. We enjoyed the quiet and lack of neibours.
It is well equiped and the pool is a good size.
We enjoyed the nearby village which has an adequate shop and very good pizzaria. The coast isn't too far away ; about 30 mins drive and we liked Porec and Rovinj. Novigrad is smaller and quieter and attractive with good eating places.
The west coast of the Istrian peninsula is accessible but very developed. If you want a quiet beach you have to hunt for them although there are a few north and south of Novigrad.

Fantastic villa in a lovely peaceful location.

  • 5 of 5
This is a fantastic villa in a lovely peaceful location yet well placed to visit the many attractions of Istria. The villa is in impeccable condition and very well equipped. The help from the owners beforehand and the service and help in Istria from the property agent and the people who look after the villa, the garden and the pool were all first class. We have stayed in villas all over Europe in the past twenty years and would highly recommend this one. We were also pleasantly surprised at the quality and value for money in the restaurants and other attractions. We would recommend the local pizzeria and the Viking restaurant at the top of the fjord. A great villa and a great holiday. Kim and Sue Lawrence

This spacious 3 bedroom house, with private pool, is located in the small, peaceful hamlet of Radici, surrounded by unspoilt Istrian countryside and woodlands, just 3 km away the small ancient walled village of Sveti Lovrec and a short drive from the stunning coastal towns of Porec, Vrsar and Rovinj and the many attractions that Istria has to offer.

At the edge of the hamlet in a tranquil location, the property with private pool is south facing and is the perfect location for soaking up the sun all day long, enjoying a refreshing swim after a day sightseeing or a poolside BBQ. Watch the spectacular sun sets or delight in the balmy, crystal clear starlit Mediterranean evenings all in complete privacy of your home from home.

Villa Erin feels away from it all but yet is only a few minutes drive away from the local village of Sveti Lovrec where you will find a small grocery shop, two bars, a post office, a cafe and the wonderful 'San Lorenzo' pizzeria. 'Idila' a typical Istrian restaurant in Rakovci is also very nearby. The scenic Limksi Kanal, a turquoise fjord, renowned for its superb seafood restaurants is only a 10 minute drive away.
