Notes:
Our house is next to a small hotel. If notify large groups, we can accommodate a part of the group there. The hotel, of course, does not offer the luxury of Casa Acqua Dolce, but it's clean and convenient. The apartment offers all the comforts throughout the year (floor heating). In the town itself there is a small grocery store (50 m). The larger supermarkets can be found in Buzet and Buje. In Buzet there is a medical center and in Motovun, Buje and Buzet you will find a pharmacy. In Oprtalj there are some restaurants: an 'Enoteca' and a restaurant on the square (no 50 meters). From the terrace on the square and under the big chestnut can always enjoy the beautiful view and the sultry air. On the other side of the road there is the 'loggia' (= Covered Market) from the 18th century. Century and an Istrian 'Enoteca' where all sorts of local produce used, inter alia Sells wines and truffles.

Luxus in ein unheimlich historischer Stadt gleich am typischer Restaurant

  • 5 of 5

Dieses haus ist wirklich außerordentlich. Es bietet alle Comfort der Mann sich wünschen kann. Aber ist auch geschmackvoll eingerichtet. Dazu ist das Haus am Rande von einer kleiner Ort gelegen, von wo Mann ein wunderbare Blick hat und gleichzeitig noch nah zum Restaurant mit ein wunderbarem Terrasse. Das Mer ist nicht weit weg und kann Mann sogar vom Haus sehen.

Alles was das Herz begehrt

  • 5 of 5

Ein wirklich wunderschönes Haus in einem verträumten Bergdorf. Von den Besitzern aufwendig renoviert, bietet es Gästen alle Annehmlichkeiten eines Premiumferienhause. Im Herbst/Winter war für uns vor allem das SPA mit Pool und Sauna ein Segen. Die Besitzer sind sehr freundlich und die Ansprechpartnerin vor Ort genauso. Das war sicher nicht unser letzter Besuch dort!

A really beautiful house in a sleepy mountain village . Extensively renovated by the owners, it offers guests all the comforts of a premium holiday home. In the autumn / winter season for us the spa with pool and sauna was a blessing. The owners are very friendly and the local contact person as well . This was certainly not our last visit there!

Himmel auf Erde

  • 5 of 5

Ein angenehmer Empfang, ein schönes Haus & Wellness, ein super schöner Aussicht: .... was kann man mehr verlangen!

Wir haben eine Menge neue Herrlichkeiten in Istrien entdeckt. Dieses Gebiet gehört auf jeden Fall in den Top 3! Und in Casa Acqua Dolce war es leicht sich zu Hause zu fühlen. Leider muss am Ende Abschied nehmen. Eine Woche vergeht zu schnell. Aber ..... vielleicht bis zum nächsten Mal :)

Oprtalj is a typical medieval hilltop village north of Motovun. The Romans founded this town as a stop between Italy and Pula. This almost "sleeping" town is like a "living" museum.

Istria made look like a blue green heart-shaped peninsula. Central triene look like rather Tuscan. There is still clean air, clear water, olive oil, wine and many hours of sunshine. In the north you have the harsh alpine mountains of the Ucka (summit 1400 m). But deise area is probably best known for its truffles.
