Overview

Property

Updated: 07-Dec-2016
Luxury 3 bedrooms Villa in the heart of vineyards and olives trees

In the very heart of hilly Istria in the village of Majeri you will find Villa EL, a holiday home only 7, 5 km drive from the nearby town of Buzet and 30 km away from the sea.

The house, originally dating from the olden days (1806), was completely restored in 2015. It extends on two floors: the ground floor houses the kitchen, dining room, living room completed with the fireplace and exit onto the balcony, and the toilet with a shower. On the first floor there are two double rooms, one single room as well as the bathroom with the balcony overlooking the swimming pool and garden.

The garden – yard includes the swimming pool, barbecue station, roofed terrace and parking spaces.

Surrounded by pristine nature the house stands in the vicinity of wine yards, olive groves and orchards, giving you the unique chance to taste homemade Istrian traditional food, local wine, olive oil as well as the world renown truffles. This is the ideal spot for those who love nature, walks, hiking and cycling, especially along the famous Parenzana track. Here you will find peace, tranquillity, relax with your friends or family and fill your batteries ready for new challenges.

Lovely countryside holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing stay that our family ( with two kids 6 and 3 yrs) didn't want to leave. The house is beautiful and authentic. It has been lovingly restored and has modern conveniences yet still has all the charm of an old cottage. It is just as the pictures shows yet better when you get to experience the surroundings and peace and quiet of the beautiful countryside. Our kids loved roaming freely in search of cats or lizards or butterflies. We enjoyed leisurely mornings by the beautiful pool although be prepared it's a little chilly as its not heated. Brigita was the most attentive host I have ever met.... And we stay at many rental homes. She was very accomodating when I had trouble wiring funds to secure the property and then continued to show kindness and thoughtfulness the entire stay. She welcomed us to the house with the bounty from her garden a bottle of delicious olive oil from olives on their groves of trees and a bottle a red and white wine. If that weren't enough she greeted us the next morning with a freshly made cheesecake and a few mornings later she dropped off a basket of plums from her trees. So generous and kind! She cleaned the pool everyday which was very unexpected as well. Overall we would come back in a heartbeat. We traveled for two weeks in Croatia and loved the region where the house was so much. We enjoyed daily day trips to Pula, Rovinj, Trieste Italy, Porec Slovenia and Opatija. All within a 45 mins to 1 and 15 mins drive... So very doable for a day trip. We fell in love with the hill town Motovun which is a short drive away and had dinner enjoying the sunsets and views three different nights. Bottom line I would stay here again if we were to ever come back to Croatia, it was a highlight of our trip!

Beautiful villa in the mountains of Istria

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful house in a small village in the Istrian mountains with "cool" and well maintained pool! The house is very nicely and tastefully furnished and fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing vacation (including towels, bedlinen, even shampoo). Also the kitchen ("the heart of the home") is perfectly equipped. Remarkable hospitality of the landlord with gifts of wine, olive oil, vegetables...). All in all a very nice stay!

A wonderful experience

  • 5 of 5

The property is beautiful and of a high quality. Everything we could think of was available in the house. The location is great if you like being a bit secluded, which for us was what we were looking for. Brigita is an excellent host and she goes out of her way to accomodate you.

A beautiful house for relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

I went for Croatie for the first time, this place is very beautiful !The house itself is wonderful, cosy, completely renovated with a nice swimming pool. We really enjoyed this holiday and thank Brigita for his kindness and all its kind intentions. We shall return with pleasure in Croatia in its house.

Highly recommended amazing villa

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended. Spotlessly clean and beautifully presented it's clear to see that the owner has gone to a lot of trouble to make guests feel welcome and was very helpful throughout our stay. Peaceful location surrounded by small vinyards, olive groves, vegetable gardens and wild flowers, with great wildlife such as nightingales singing us to sleep. Within walking distance is a little pub/restaurant with garden and great views of the area. We would definitely stay here again, it was a delight.

Great holidays in awesome house

  • 5 of 5

We spend our holidays this year in this great finca in the middle

of Istria. We loved this time so much, because of this calm part

of Istria between wine yards and olivetrees.

The garden with the pool and especially the perfect styled house, wich was exactly how it was discribed and like the pictures!!! We loved it and would be come back, so early we can. Thank you so much for the hospitality and your presents.

Wir waren so begeistert von dem Hause inmitten der zum Hause gehörenden Weinstöcke und Olivenbäume, dass wir nur sehr ungern das Hause verlassen haben. Wer eine Unterkunft fernab vom großen Trubel sucht und ein Hause für bis zu 5 Personen sucht, ist hier meiner Meinung nach absolut richtig.

Die Bilder stellen exakt den vorgefundenen und neuwertigen Eindruck des Vorgefundenen dar! Das Haus ist komplett ausgestattet und es fehlt einem an nichts. Besonders hat uns die Aufmerksamkeit mit einem Kuchen und Wein, sowie Olivenöl sehr gefreut. Wir können diese Finca wirklich nur weiterempfehlen. Jane und Guido, 40 aus Hamburg
