Overview

About the property

3-4 Bedroom, 3 Bathrooms, Mountain Views

The house is situated in a very tranquil, rural neighbourhood in a small hamlet 4 km away from Grožnjan. Owing to its location on the green hills in the inland of Istria, a lovely cool wind blows often in the midsummer. Wherever you look, you are surrounded by green scenery. It’s the perfect place to take a break from everyday life.

Despite its peaceful position, the house offers an ideal starting point for trips. The seaside can be reached by car in as little as 20 minutes. The Istrian cities such as Motovun or Buzet, which were once Medieval hilltop strongholds, are not located a great distance away either. The closest convenience stores are found in the town of Buje.

The house is located on the Istrian “Olive Oil Trail”. The surroundings offer a great deal of culinary highlights like famous Istrian truffles, Boskarin veal meat, wild Istrian asparagus, locally produced wine and olive oil. The nearby gorgeous Medieval stronghold of Grožnjan is well-known as “a village of artists” owing to its numerous galleries. It addition, it has a good culinary offer. A Jazz Festival well-known among insiders takes place there each summer.

Acquired in 2013 by a German family, the house was tastefully refurbished and decorated in a rustic style. A well equipped kitchen and a dining area for eight people as well as a shower bath and a wardrobe can all be found on the ground floor. A glass door leads from the kitchen to the covered terrace which also has a dining area. In the garden, in front of the terrace there is a swimming pool.

Upstairs there are three individual bedrooms for two persons each, a toilette and a bathroom with a tub. In the spacious living room there is a sofa corner which can be converted into an additional double bed, a reading chair, a writing desk and a television. On the balcony on the upper floor there is another sitting area with a table and four chairs.

The house has very thick walls which provide cool temperatures in the summer. Air conditioning units in all rooms ensure comfortable temperature even on the hottest of days.

Thanks to its central heating and heaters in all rooms, the house is also suitable for winter stays.

In the living room stands a cast iron fireplace. All bedrooms are equipped with roller blinds for moscito protection in the window frames for having a calm sleep.

Es war ein Traumurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Es war ein Traum. Ein absolut gutes, luxuriöses, sauberes, gepflegtes Haus, in ruhiger toller Lage. Der Pool und die Tischtennisplatte sind perfekt. Es bleiben keine Wünsche offen. Wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.

sehr schön gelegenes und gepflegtes Ferienhaus mit wunderschön angelegtem Garten; liebevolle Einrichtung in landestypischen Stil; Service war perfekt und das Haus war sehr sauber bei Anreise; ich würde die Villa Dubci jederzeit Freunden und Familie empfehlen; ich selbst habe dort einen rundum schönen und erholsamen Kurzurlaub im eindrucksvollen herbstlichen Istrien verlebt;

Großartiges Haus für entspannte Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt inmitten der grünen istrischen Natur. Sehr ruhig gelegen und schön eingerichtet. Wir haben nichts vermisst. An den bereits etwas kühleren Herbstabenden hatten wir es mit der Zentralheizung kuschelig warm und trocken. Einige sehr nette Restaurants in der Gegend. Wir kommen gerne wieder!

Ein tolles Urlaubsdomizil !!!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Dubci (und natürlich auch Istrien insgesamt) ist wirklich einen Urlaub wert. Das Haus liegt in sehr ruhiger Lage, das Klima ist durch die umgebenden grünen Hügel wirklich angenehm. Auch die ganz heißen Tage konnten wir genießen.

In relativ kurzer (Pkw-) Entfernung sind der Strand und viele lohnende Ziele und Ortschaften gut zu erreichen. Ist man nicht der Tourenradfahrer, ist man auf ein Auto angewiesen - für uns kein Problem.

Das Haus ist toll ausgestattet (Küche sehr komplett! 2 schöne Bäder plus 1 WC, Schlafräume mit Klima, bequeme Betten, ...). Wir haben nichts vermisst. Alles passt zusammen und ist sehr geschmackvoll.

Für uns wichtig: Tischtennisplatte, Pool zum Spaß haben und zum entspannen Sonnen- und Schattenflächen zu jeder Tageszeit. War für die ganze Familie was dabei.

Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt und können das Angebot nur empfehlen.

Gerne noch einmal!

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday in Villa Dubci was just perfect. Everything provided and clean. The house is spacious and very well equipped. Although set in a tranquil place, you have a good selection of extremely good restaurants in the surroundings.The seaside is not far away (although we preferred chilling around the house and the pool to hot and crowded beaches).We can definitely recommend the house.

The house is situated in a small place called 'Dubci', near Martincici, only 3 km to Groznjan. Very peaceful and tranquil.

Grožnjan-Grisignana, a small Istrian town of great cultural significance not only in Croatia but also internationally, lives its summer months very intensely. Every year at the beginning of

May, the little streets and squares of Grožnjan-Grisignana metamorphose and turn into a truly artistic beehive: it opens its summer music academies for young people, its artistic, dance and drama workshops and its peace activism workshops under the leadership of well-known experts and teachers and famous names from music, art and drama.

During those few summer months Grožnjan-Grisignana lives and breathes art and the labyrinth of its little streets become one great stage on which are constantly interchanging the sounds of jazz and classical music, guitar and piano, violin and cello, drum and vibraphone...
