A hugely comfortable villa for eight in the Istria region of Croatia, Villa Tihomira blends classic elegance with everything you would expect from a modern holiday home. In the village of Vabriga, to the north of Poreč, it offers lots of outdoor space including a tempting private pool with large terrace.
Just a few steps away from the pool, you have seating areas and a covered summer kitchen and barbecue, ensuring you will be spending plenty of time out in the sun. Inside on the ground floor, you will find the enticing living areas decorated with the works of renowned Croatian artists.
The living room is directly accessible from the terrace and features a comfortable seating area with satellite TV, Wi-Fi and air conditioning, which is found throughout the property. A large dining area and a well-equipped kitchen are also on the ground floor, making entertaining inside the house just as easy as outside.
Also on the ground floor of the villa is a double bedroom with a private bathroom, with direct access to the pool. A staircase leads you up to two more bedrooms, one of which has access to the pool too. Both offer an en-suite bathroom, equipped with towels and luxury toiletries for a little extra decadence.
A final bedroom can be found in the villa’s extension and is accompanied by its private bathroom – this accommodation has its private entrance near the poolside.
This well-located villa lies 1km from the beach, with many local amenities even closer. Vabriga lies close to the neighbouring village of Tar and is around 10 minutes’ drive from Poreč, a popular resort with plenty to see and do, including the impressive Baredine caves, Motodrom go-karting track, and the World Heritage Site Euphrasian Basilica – a must-see attraction in the Old Town.
The village of Vabriga forms part of Tar-Vabriga county on the western side of Croatia’s Istrian peninsula. This naturally beautiful area is perfect as a travel destination with its Adriatic coastline and reliably warm temperatures.
It is these which make it ideal for olive oil production, with the olive oil of Tar-Vabriga considered by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation to be the best in Europe.
This historically rich region is full of old churches and archaeological sites. The church of St Martin in Tar is nowadays known as the location of classical music concerts during the summer. An annual treat since 1998, these free concerts attract high-calibre musicians from Croatia and elsewhere, and are justifiably popular with visitors.
Numerous restaurants in Vabriga, Tar and the coastal area of Lanterna introduce the fine Istrian cuisine – lookout for a variety of fish and seafood dishes, truffles and asparagus on the menus. Much like the olive oil, the area’s wine is top-notch too, with wine-making an essential part of Istria’s culture – in short, don’t miss out on a glass or two.
Around 12km south lies the town of Poreč, which attracts many visitors to its Roman Old Town. You’ll find the remains of temples and fortification walls, and – most significantly – the Episcopal complex of Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
Poreč is also known as a great cycling destination, and its central location makes it a good base for further exploration of the region. Rovinj lies around 30km to the south, and it’s not much more than an hour from Italy, with a beautiful slice of Slovenia even closer.
