Stunning Villa in Tranquil Village - Pool/Garden/Views/WIFi/Sleeps 6



Updated: 13-Nov-2016
3-Bedroom, 2-Bathroom villa with beautiful 270-degree views

This luxurious, private holiday villa is situated in a row of 3 typical Istrian houses, located in the small village of Baredine near Buje, six kilometers from the Slovenia border. The villa is on the end with the advantage of offering greater privacy and a large garden area (perfect for barbecues) with stunning views of the historic village of Buje to the back and ancient Motovun to the front. The garden is ideal for lazing around all day, especially in the afternoon with a glass of local Muscat while watching the sunset and the lights of Venice in the distance starting to flicker after dusk. The property is fully furnished with tasteful furniture and top-of-the-range equipment including a flat-screen TV and DVD, and has its own parking for two cars. The ground floor has a very spacious living and dining area with an ultra-modern open and fully-equipped kitchen. Great energy and a nice breeze flows through large glass doors at the front and back of the villa. Start your day with breakfast on the cool morning patio and small garden off the kitchen and dining room, and then move to the larger terrace at the front of the house for alfresco dining, with wonderful views over the valley. Upstairs, the master bedroom features a large ensuite bathroom, and both lead off to a private, secluded balcony overlooking vineyards towards Buje. The other two bedrooms both have 2 single beds each that can be joined together. One of the bedrooms also has a private balcony, while both share a spacious and modern bathroom. So, come and unwind in a tranquil setting and discover a region rich in history that The New York Times has dubbed 'The New Tuscany.'

About the Owner

We are two Greek-Australians, working in the media and living in London, who fell in love with Croatia upon our first visit in 2005. We have visited each year since, to idyllic Istria, where stunning views, gorgeous hilltop towns like Motovun and Grozjnan, and great food (think truffles!!) and wine, offer a sensational, get-away-from-it all respite from hectic lifestyles.

An authentic getaway in amazing Croatian landscapes. This is the perfect place to write and create, to relax and recharge, to enjoy the best of Balkanic beauty.

We had a memorable stay in this amazing house that is easy to love and hard to leave.

Peaceful Setting

  • 4 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday. The villa is a beautiful property in a fantastic setting. I could have stayed another week! It had everything we needed and felt spacious even when the 6 of us were there. Enjoyed our breakfast, lunch and the odd bbq on the terrace admiring the views. Had some great days out and some fantastic evening meals that were very reasonable. Thank you again, We would love to return.

A Real Discovery for all senses

  • 4 of 5

am just back from an enchanting long weekend at Villa Achilles to celebrate my friends' marriage anniversary. To my great surprise it was the perfect setting for a romantic celebration as the house is set between a huge olive grove on one side and never-ending green hills on the other side, including the most picturesque view of Buje village. But the pleasure of the senses doesn't end with these striking views - as I discovered the region's excellent wines, spectacular olive oil and delicious cuisine "a la truffe". At night the deep silence results in the most restorative sleep, and on a clear night the sky shines spectacularly with millions of stars. All in all Istria is a very special destination, which I strongly recommend, may it be for a romantic getaway, a retreat from our busy city lives, or even as a sportive trip with its many treks and challenging bike rides.

From the Owner

The villa is situated in a tiny village and offers tranquillity and privacy, with the ancient hilltop towns Motovun and Grozjnan just a few kilometres away. Even in the busy tourists months, the villa and its surroundings are away from the crowds, so you can move from vineyards to taverns and hilltop towns to the beach, peacefully and with ease.

Activity and Interests

Baredine is a small, quiet village, making this an ideal location for a relaxing holiday with family or friends. There is a shared pool, with sun loungers, but it is never busy or crowded as most people go on day trips/drives. The coast is a 20-minute drive away, and inland there are many ancient hilltop villages, like beautiful Motovun and Grozjnan, to explore in the beautiful Istrian countryside.
