3-Bedroom, 2-Bathroom villa with beautiful 270-degree views
This luxurious, private holiday villa is situated in a row of 3 typical Istrian houses, located in the small village of Baredine near Buje, six kilometers from the Slovenia border. The villa is on the end with the advantage of offering greater privacy and a large garden area (perfect for barbecues) with stunning views of the historic village of Buje to the back and ancient Motovun to the front. The garden is ideal for lazing around all day, especially in the afternoon with a glass of local Muscat while watching the sunset and the lights of Venice in the distance starting to flicker after dusk. The property is fully furnished with tasteful furniture and top-of-the-range equipment including a flat-screen TV and DVD, and has its own parking for two cars. The ground floor has a very spacious living and dining area with an ultra-modern open and fully-equipped kitchen. Great energy and a nice breeze flows through large glass doors at the front and back of the villa. Start your day with breakfast on the cool morning patio and small garden off the kitchen and dining room, and then move to the larger terrace at the front of the house for alfresco dining, with wonderful views over the valley. Upstairs, the master bedroom features a large ensuite bathroom, and both lead off to a private, secluded balcony overlooking vineyards towards Buje. The other two bedrooms both have 2 single beds each that can be joined together. One of the bedrooms also has a private balcony, while both share a spacious and modern bathroom. So, come and unwind in a tranquil setting and discover a region rich in history that The New York Times has dubbed 'The New Tuscany.'

About Nick Papadopoulos
We are two Greek-Australians, working in the media and living in London, who fell in love with Croatia upon our first visit in 2005. We have visited each year since, to idyllic Istria, where stunning views, gorgeous hilltop towns like Motovun and Grozjnan, and great food (think truffles!!) and wine, offer a sensational, get-away-from-it all respite from hectic lifestyles.
Nick Papadopoulos purchased this Villa in 2010
Why Nick Papadopoulos chose Baredine
The villa is situated in a tiny village and offers tranquillity and privacy, with the ancient hilltop towns Motovun and Grozjnan just a few kilometres away. Even in the busy tourists months, the villa and its surroundings are away from the crowds, so you can move from vineyards to taverns and hilltop towns to the beach, peacefully and with ease.

Fabulous villa with stunning views
It's rare to find a villa with outlooks such as these, from practically all sides, front, back and with gorgeous hidden terraces upstairs. It is in a very peaceful location on the outskirts of a tiny village which is very picturesque. The pool is shared by 2 houses i.e. 6 properties but it is very large with plenty of loungers - most of the time only one other family in. It is a little "cool" as doesn't appear to be heated so bear that in mind if you have tiny children. Very freshing on a hot day though.
The villa itself feels like it's pretty new, kitchens and bathrooms are high end. Beds are extremely comfy with good quality linen. The internal pictures online actually don't do it all justice. Aircon worked well ( have been in many properties where it's feeble!). Decor and furniture is very tasteful and comfortable although we ate most meals outside on the terrace - why wouldn't you!
Ivona the property agent was really helpful.
In short, we are very sad to leave and would come back in a heartbeat.
Thank you so much and it's great to read that you and your family had a wonderful time. We hope to welcome you back next Summer!! Take care.
Très beau gîte et vues magnifiques
Joli duplex, fournitures de qualité, très confortables et avec différentes terrasses donnant sur de beaux paysages. Mention spéciale pour la suite parentale avec sdb et terrasse avec petite table et chaises, vue bucolique avec la mer au loin. La localisation n'est pas mal mais il faut toujours utiliser la voiture, rien dans les environs (min. 10-15 ' pour le premier magasin, resto...).
Bonnes informations de la part du loueur (thanks Nick) et simplicité des contacts /formalités minimales. On y retournerait volontiers
Dear Fabienne, I am so happy that you and your family had a great time and enjoyed my property. Thank you very much for the review and hope to welcome you back again soon. Take care Nick
We really enjoyed our vacation in Baredine.

Excellent property in an idealic location
Really enjoyed our stay here, lovely property in a peaceful location with wonderful views. Everything is as described and both the owner and local agent were extremely helpful running up to and during the stay. Highly recommended :0)
We had a fantastic holiday. The villa is a beautiful property in a fantastic setting. I could have stayed another week! It had everything we needed and felt spacious even when the 6 of us were there. Enjoyed our breakfast, lunch and the odd bbq on the terrace admiring the views. Had some great days out and some fantastic evening meals that were very reasonable. Thank you again, We would love to return.
Baredine is a small, quiet village, making this an ideal location for a relaxing holiday with family or friends. There is a shared pool, with sun loungers, but it is never busy or crowded as most people go on day trips/drives. The coast is a 20-minute drive away, and inland there are many ancient hilltop villages, like beautiful Motovun and Grozjnan, to explore in the beautiful Istrian countryside.
