This classically-styled villa in the pretty Istrian village of Vabriga is timelessly elegant, providing the perfect holiday home for up to 12 guests. Built in 2018, villa is fresh and well equipped, with its pool and terrace right outside.
The interior is dominated by a grand, marble-covered staircase, which you can ascend lit by beautiful chandeliers. The lobby area sets the scene for a comfortable living area with its seating space and a large dining table and chairs. This air-conditioned space has Wi-Fi and satellite TV and is decorated with the works of Croatian artists.
A separate kitchen can also be found on this floor, featuring a dishwasher, fridge freezer, coffee machine and much more. Outside, there’s a barbecue area with a dining table and chairs, just a few feet away from the pool. In between, you have a selection of sun loungers to chill out on, and a lawn area with a comfortable chair gives you another place to relax or the children somewhere to play.
On the first floor of the villa, you will find three comfortable bedrooms, each with a private bathroom, one of which has a balcony. There is also another balcony with stairs down to the pool. On the second floor are two more bedrooms with private bathrooms, and another balcony offering a magnificent panoramic view of the surroundings.
All of the bedrooms are supremely comfortable and have been beautifully designed, with furnishings you’re bound to fall in love with. The bathrooms have enjoyed similar attention to detail, with gorgeous fittings and L’Occitane toiletries provided.
The Tar-Vabriga area lies to the north of the resort of Poreč and has beautiful beaches, countryside and golf courses to explore. If you do want to head to Poreč, that’s easy – this family-friendly town lists the World Heritage Site Euphrasian Basilica among its attractions, and is just a little over 15 minutes’ drive away.
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.
