A lovely villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

The villa is set in the beautiful central Istrian countryside about 1km from Livade with views over the Mirna valley and across to the ancient hilltop town of Motovun. The house is well equipped and tastefully decorated, and outside the pool and seating areas are lovely. Elvis and Ksenija are wonderful hosts, extremely helpful and informative - their English language skills are brilliant!

The location is ideal for touring and sightseeing with many interesting hilltop towns and coastal resorts within easy reach by car.

We would not hesitate to recommend this delightful villa to anyone.

Very noce stay at a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 2 weeks at this beautiful house with a stunning view.

Everything was very clean and well-maintained. As temperature was above 35 degrees, we were happy to have airco.

This area is perfect to visit Istria because you can get everywhere within 1.5 hours.

Elvis and Ksenija are very nice people who care to enjoy your stay.

Thanks for recommending the Parenzana bike trail!

Dinning at Zigante costs a lot of money but it is worth it.

Beautiful Cottage stunning views - great host

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have been more pleased with our choice. Villa Maria is a beautiful cottage in a great location with stunning views and a great pool - what more could one ask for.

Elvis was lovely and very knowledgeable about the area - the goodies on arrival were nice too.

We have booked to go back next year... what more can I add.

Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful. Is has been refurbished with so much detail and care you simply have to love it. The location is great - in the middle of Istria so all tourist attractions are on a short distance drive, it is peaceful and tranquil and the view is stunning! Moltovun on the hill, the olive and fig trees, and let’s not forget the hares and deers we saw around the house. It was so nice to return after a busy day at seaside or a beautiful city in the peaceful comfort of this home. Of course I do not have to mention the fact that the swimming pool is a big plus especially if you have children.

The owners are really nice and helpful. They live in the region, so if there is a problem they could be there in a wink. And did I mention the homecooked welcome and farewell cookies?

I would re-book this house as well as recommend it to my friends so Villa Maria absolutely deserves the 5 stars!

Wunderschönes Ferienhaus - einmalige Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir können dieses wunderschöne Ferienhaus nur empfehlen.

Alles war genau wie beschrieben:

- das Haus ist sehr gemütlich und liebevoll eingerichtet

- Pool und Garten sehr gepflegt

- die Aussicht einfach umwerfend, man fühlt sich fast wie in der Toskana

Wir haben uns hier sehr wohl gefühlt und werden sicher wiederkommen.

Nochmals vielen herzlichen Dank an Familie Ipsa für ihre unglaublich nette Gastfreundschaft.

The best of Istria

  • 5 of 5

Elvis's olive oil is excellent and the beautiful house and view was the Istria we imagined. Our kids loved the olive trees, pool and bugs and we loved everything else!!!!
