About the property

Max. guests: 12, Indoor area: 328 m2, Ground area: 35000 m2, Bedrooms: 5, Bathrooms: 5,

If you’re looking for a special holiday retreat with a ‘wow’ factor, Villa Monte Istra certainly has it in abundance. Words are hard to describe how magical the villa, the grounds and the setting are. Faced with one of the most beautiful views in Istria, you just cannot resist feasting your eyes on the glorious rolling hills and the sparkling Adriatic in the distance. <br/>

The villa itself is the epitome of style and grace, divided into three immaculately restored stone houses: Flying Roses, Bellevue and Hiza. The property’s immense character and charm has been enhanced with an exquisite blend of carefully chosen antiques, beautiful artwork and high quality contemporary fittings, offering a taste of traditional Istrian lifestyle yet with an air of relaxed sophistication. <br/>

House Hiza exudes old-word charm with a rustic dining room and a fully equipped kitchen on the ground floor and a cosy living room and double bedroom on the upper floor. <br/>

The House Flying Roses on the other hand is contemporary in style with a striking open plan living and dining area leading to the professionally-equipped kitchen on the ground floor and two panoramic double bedrooms on the first floor. <br/>

Bellevue offers two more double bedrooms, one for every floor. Each of the 5 bedrooms has a private bathroom as stylish as the rest of the interior. <br/>

It is, however, the outside area what Villa Monte Istra is all about, offering many a panoramic terrace, beautiful al fresco dining area with barbecue, inviting Jacuzzi and the irresistible infinity pool complete with hydro massage, melting into the spectacular backdrop. Surrounding all this are 35000 m2 of the property’s private land, including an idyllic olive grove and organic vegetable garden at free disposal. There is, of course, plenty of space for a fun game of volleyball, badminton or bocce. The views, in case you needed reminding, are bewitching, no matter where you look, guaranteed to create lasting memories with your loved ones.

Villa Monte Istra lies just between the two historic hilltop towns of Groznjan and Motovun, both offering spectacular views across hills blanketed with vineyards, hamlets and farmhouses, and the magical Mirna Valley. Traditional local festivities, artistic workshops, as well as a renowned international film festival are hosted here, bringing this peaceful little towns to life. The number of towns and villages to visit is too long to list; this is the heart of Central Istria, one of the most beautiful spots in Croatia. It is also famous for local Malvasia and Teran grapes, virgin olive oil, home-made cheeses, prosciutto, barbecued meats, and of course truffles, all of which can be sampled in restaurants within the many villages and towns of the area. There are numerous hiking and cycling trails, one of the most stunning of them being the historical Parenzana old railroad trail which offers a unique ride on a tourist train along the route as well. The main coastal resorts of Umag, Novigrad and Porec, quickly reached along excellent roads, provide extremely varied leisure facilities, good nightlife, bars and restaurants.
