Beautiful beaches, stunning secluded coves and plenty of history - Istria is the perfect spot for a Croatian getaway, and Villa Rijeka is the ideal place to call home as you explore the area.
As you walk into this villa, you enter a modern home away from home, that is bright and airy with the incredible indoor-outdoor flow. There are plenty of nooks and crannies for everyone to seek solitude in, from the living areas to one of the many bedrooms. There are also significant and welcoming spaces where everyone can gather and enjoy a meal or a movie - the options are endless.
The living room boasts cosy couches, ready to welcome weary souls after a big day of exploring. The large windows throughout the living areas offer lovely natural light, so if you need a respite from the sun, you can sit inside with the sunlight beaming in and the air-conditioning keeping you cool.
This villa also offers a well-equipped kitchen, with an oven, fridge, microwave, gas stove, kettle, freezer, coffee machine and dishwasher - everything you need to make cooking easy, should you wish to prepare a feast with local delicacies.
This villa offers five bedrooms and can accommodate up to 12 guests. The bedrooms are large and airy, and all offer substantial storage and space to set yourself up indeed. There are five bathrooms, perfect for a home that can sleep so many guests, and each of the bathrooms offers a spacious shower or a large tub - because what is more relaxing than a long shower or bath after a long day exploring, or sunning yourself?
The outdoor area of this home is idyllic for the city, offering a private space to enjoy the beautiful weather. Days can be spent in or around the private pool, playing games or topping up your tan. Meals can also be enjoyed and prepared outside under the shaded outdoor dining area and kitchen spot, complete with a barbeque. This home offers plenty of shade, which is ideal for hot days, especially if you are travelling with children.
Getaway to a seaside retreat, where Continental Croatia meets the Adriatic - that’s what is on offer when you visit Istria. A heart-shaped, 3600-square kilometre peninsula is in the country’s northwest, and it offers rolling hills, rich culture, renowned cuisine and plenty of spots to explore.
It’s an incredibly popular holiday destination, always topping many lists of must-visit places in Croatia. This area differs from some other regions of Croatia due to its strong Italian influence that can be felt in the region, which is because Istria used to be part of Italy during the early 20th century.
This villa is located 3000m from Žminj in Central Istria. This area is known as the heart of Istria, and as you explore the labyrinth of narrow streets, you can get lost in the stunning scenery and history that surrounds this place.
There is something to see everywhere you turn, from the medieval castles on the hills to the forests of truffles to the vineyards and fascinating landscape. This area boasts beautiful natural resources, all of which make for stunning feasts as you venture back to the villa. There are many towns nearby, including Hum - the smallest city in the world.
