Overview

About the property

Rustic on the outside, country-chic on the inside, this characterful estate has recently been given a new lease of life as a deluxe private retreat for a group of friends or family with accent on ecology and self sustain. Built in 1900, the main house and guest house were restored in 2012/13 with great effort according to ecological principles. Particular emphasis was placed on the environmental impact of all building materials. In addition to the exterior masonry the existing wooden ceilings were preserved, restored and staged. The new furniture is made of local wood.

Immense love and care has been lavished on this ancient house and the careful restoration was carried out with full respect to the place’s original architecture and spirit. The property is rented in its entirety and comprises of five deluxe suites,

The 2000 square meter site is fenced with a typical Istrian stone wall. After passing the entrance gate you will see the on the left-hand side the 70 m² cottage that has a bedroom with two double beds, a living room with a stone fireplace, a stylish country kitchen and a bathroom with shower / WC.

On the right is the main house, which is followed by the spa with gym, sauna, Jacuzzi and an outdoor bathroom. In the cold season, the wellness area is protected by glass while in summer it is open. A contrast between traditional and modern forms of the large brick bread oven dating from 1900, which can be used for baking. Across a large wooden terrace you can reach the pool and another leafy terrace with mature trees.

On the ground floor of the main house is on the left hand the large, stylish, fully equipped country kitchen with a large table and direct access to the terrace. On the opposite side it is followed by a tastefully decorated living room with a large stone fireplace. A guest bathroom and laundry room are also available.

In the first and second floor is a large bedroom, each equipped with a double bed and en suite bathroom with double sink, toilet and bathtub as well as another large bedroom with two single beds and en suite bathroom with two hand basins, toilet and shower or bathtub. The single beds can be put together.

From the first floor another terrace with an original cistern is accessible.

From the upper floors, you have a fantastic view over the Istrian hills to the sea with the offshore island of Brijuni to the south and the red island in the north.

Bicycles for exploring the beautiful scenery and a shaded carport is of course available.

Map

The town of Bale-Valle is situated at a height of 140 meters above sea level and lies at the intersection of roads leading to Rovinj-Rovigno, Pula-Pola and Trieste, only 5 kilometres from the sea. The town developed around the medieval castle of the Sardo and Bembo families in the 15th century and is mentioned in the earliest written documents as the Roman settlement Castrum Vallis.

It is yet another typical Istrian town built on a hilltop with narrow streets and stone houses that create a special atmosphere. The town is dominated by the bell tower of the Parish Church of St. Julian, built at the end of the 19th century. The Bembo Palace has recently been completely restored, nearby is a fine example of a town loggia, whereas the town centre is under protection.

At Colone Cove near Bale-Valle a very rich site of fossils belonging to several species of dinosaurs has been discovered.
