    About this property

    Stone Cottage in Tranquil Village Location, 5km From Porec

    Romantic cottage in Porec with fitness center
    Beautifully appointed 2 bedroom air conditioned 3 storey self catering Istrian stone cottage set in lovely rural location between Istria's tourist mecca Porec and the rolling hills of 'The New Tuscany'. Ask for our QuickTime movie. Views over vineyards and olive groves in this tiny hamlet 5km from Istria's main tourist destination. Enclosed garden with olive tree and locking gate. Covered patio area with garden furniture. First floor bedroom also has a terrace with fine views of the surrounding vineyards and farmland. 10 minutes from Porec & resorts Plava Laguna (Blue Lagoon), Zelena Laguna (Green lagoon) and Bijela Uvala (White Bay). Waterskiing, windsurfing, scuba diving, boat & bike hire available. Pula, home to Europe's 3rd largest amphitheatre and gateway to stunning Brijuni Islands (where you will find Tito's palace, a safari park and a unique golf course) is just 40 minutes away. Local Amenities: All facilities, supermarkets, banks, ATMs, travel agencies etc available in Porec. Local restaurants serve wonderful food with a strong Italian influence, great Pizzas and pastas, as well as sea food caught daily and very drinkable local wines. Don't miss the Istrian truffles with steak or fusilli, Prsut (the local dried ham), sheep’s cheese, wild boar with pasta, and raw fish gaspaccio. Croatians seem to excel at all sports, illustrated by Russia WC 2018, and local hotels offer excellent facilities, many with tennis centres with indoor and outdoor courts. At the Hotel Diamant there is a superb 'Wellness Centre', with gym, pools, sauna, steam room, treatments etc. The beaches in Istria tend to be pebbly, rather than sandy, with a few exceptions. There are purpose built paved platforms with steps down all along the water's edge, which are ideal for sunbathing, particularly if you don't like getting sand everywhere! The Adriatic is one of the cleanest seas anywhere, winning praise from Jacques Cousteau as one of the most beautiful seas he had ever dived in. Getting there: Low cost daily scheduled flights from Stansted, to Pula (40 mins from house) and Trieste (around 90 mins). EasyJet and Whizzair fly Luton to Ljubljana (90 mins) and EasyJet now fly Gatwick to Pula. Other carriers have cheap charter flights to Pula and Rijeka. Scheduled flights also available.

    5/5 Excellent

      Rustic, beautiful and quite perfect!

      A rustic house which had great character and was perfectly situated to explore all directions in beautiful Istria. Very well equipped, clean, with all the comforts needed for an enjoyable and peaceful stay. Thank you, we had a wonderful break and all the neighbours and local farmer were very friendly. The farmers two pet cows were pure entertainment!

      4/5 Good

        Well maintained, comfortable, peaceful location.

        The house was well maintained and contained everything that we needed for a comfortable stay. We enjoyed being in a peaceful location but within easy reach of many lovely places to visit. Neighbours were friendly and we appreciated very much the gift of fresh figs and grapes. Having the balcony outside our bedroom was a great bonus and we made good use of it. Rather disappointingly - and contrary to the information with which we were provided - there were no places to eat within walking distance. The restaurant in Muzalez had closed down - it seemed as if that had happened some time ago. We wandered around the village until we found what had been Bepo's Grill, recognising it from a leaflet in the house, and there was no sign of that ever having been a restaurant. It would be helpful, therefore, for information to be updated. By exploring around the village, we found a few nice walks, including one into Porec. Again, providing such information in the house would have been good. Setting aside those few niggles, we had a lovely holiday and would recommend the property and the area highly.

          Peaceful trip

          It was a very Nice stay in Villa Maria. The cottage is confortable, well decorated, with natural colours and matérial. The place is very peaceful. Some Angels look around : swallows and neighbours.. :-) We loved Porec and istria in général. Anne, Didier and daughter Coline, from France

              Perfect holiday

              Very nice house in little village near Porec. Perfect for family holiday, quiet but close enough to the tourist Center of Porec and to beaches and restaurants. House was very clean, neighbours friendly and helpfull.
