Luxury villa built from Istrian stone and reclaimed oak beams and terracotta tiles. Private heated pool (8 x 4m) with Roman steps, lined with mosaic tiles and having a waterfall feature wall. Clear plastic safety cover operated electronically. Peaceful location at the edge of the hamlet, with panoramic views to the sea. Landscaped gardens with tile-capped stone walls all round and wrought iron gates to parking for 2 cars. Tastefully furnished to the highest standard, including American side by side fridge/freezer with chilled water and ice dispenser and canvas pictures of local flora and fauna. Wireless internet. Air conditioning in each of the bedrooms. Double glazed windows and doors with traditional external wood shutters with outside access from each bedroom, central heating throughout and traditional Istrian open fireplace giving our villa a welcoming rustic charm.
We live in England with our 3 young children. We both work, but we try to make it out to our villa at least 4 or 5 times a year. We fell in love with the country when we went on holiday and bought the land to build our lovely villa.
Simon and Hanh Jelf purchased this villa in 2005
We love Istria because of the green rolling countryside, vineyards, crystal clear waters and last but not least, the fabulous Mediterranean food. Our villa is in a beautiful little hamlet and is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives in England. With several airlines now flying to Pula, it is easier than ever to get to our place for a long weekend. The nearby coastal towns are excellent for people watching and eating freshly cooked food.
The villa is enclosed within stone walls and is therefore safe for families with young children. Having found the pool to be the focus of the holiday, we recently replaced the original liner pool with a beautiful tiled pool. To extend the swimming season we added heating, which is rare in Istria but extremely useful, even at the height of the season if you favour a morning swim. Most importantly, having young children ourselves, we were concerned about pool safety and had a Roldeck safety cover installed. Being clear plastic, it retains the beauty of the pool and allows you to appreciate the lighting in the evening. It is fully automatic - just a press of a switch in the villa. It has already proved its worth, our young nephew having fallen but kept safe from the water. The large steps to the pool allow room for paddling or just relaxing! We also love eating outside and have added a stone-built barbecue and shaded dining area for fantastic al fresco dining with the most stunning sunsets.
