Overview

About the property

Modern Villa With Private Pool (40m2), 4 Bedrooms, 4000m2 Fenced plot

Surrounded by the beautiful greenery, Villa Rovere is located at the entrance to Rakalj providing you with peace and intimacy far from the city crowd and rush, and the combination of modern architecture and untouched nature transforms this villa into a true oasis of peace.

Thanks to its spaciousness (4000 m2, 4 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms) and a swimming pool where you can enjoy swimming through the whole day or night, you can use this house for relaxation and as a starting point for exploring the Istrian peninsula. To begin with you can explore Rakalj, a quiet place known in the history of traditional Istrian pottery, and just 3 kilometers away from the villa there is a newly redecorated promenade bearing the name of the famous cellist Stjepan Hauser (2Cellos), whose roots originate from this area.

The promenade extends from Kalavojna, across the bay of Luka to the cape Sv. Mikula offering a wonderful view of the untouched nature and spacious blue Adriatic sea, and the authentic smell of the Mediterranean vegetation will restore to your body and spirit its lost harmony.

In the promenade you can enjoy morning walks, and if you are an adventurous spirit you can rent a bike or a kayak with additional charges, depending on your preferences.

If you want to explore all the beauties of the Istrian peninsula, you can ask for a day or half day excursion with additional charges in which we will introduce you with all the beauties of this region and of course show you some hidden locations known only to the local population

Good villa and great pool

  • 4 of 5

We were a bit disappointed that no one had met us at the villa when we arrived. We had arranged to be there at 4 but there was some confusion as the owner had tried to call to say we could get in earlier but the number used was my homework number and not mobile. When I called the owner did come over 30 minutes later but this was only because I didn't want to have to be disturbed the following day when he suggested he would come. That said all was very friendly . The only suggestions I would ,suggest is that there was no information in the house about rubbish, how to use wash machine and general info about the area. It didn't however tarnish our stay. The village of Kronica is lovely and the food and the local Kum Krinica was super and the local supermarket had everything you could need

Stunning property

Delightful property in every way, fabulous BBQ and outside space. The owner is extremely helpful, left local wine, meats and olives as a welcome for when we arrived. Would recommend.

high end vacation at Rakalj

  • 5 of 5

We have been with 4 persons during August/septembre at this beautiful house. It is located outside the touristic centres w all advantages and disadvantages. But at least all centres can be reached in less than 1h.

We found some fantasic bays where we've been more or less alone.

The villa is really beautifull, everything is new and in a fine quality. The phots don't lie ! All objects for kitchen, bedroom, bathroom etc. have been inside the house and in a fine quality. The pool is excellent to even the sun lounger are based on oak wook. At least the Illumination in the late evening is fantastic.

All in all it was a fantastic time in Rakalj. We hope we can stay next year again.

Ich war mit sieben Personen vom 12-19 August in der schönen Villa.

Danke Aleksandra, Danke Dean für die schöne zeit,auch im namen meiner Freunde.

Der Himmel war Blau, Wetter wie im Bilderbuch.

Diese Villa ist immer eine Reise Wert.

Das einzige Manko sind die Grenzkontrollen,aber das ist in dieser zeit halt so.

Gerne wieder :Franz

Ein wundervolles Haus

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderschönes Anwesen mit allem Komfort. Es hat an nichts gemangelt. Ganz toll auch die Küchenausstattung bis hin zu wirklich scharfen Messern. Nicht zu vergessen der perfekte Grillplatz und der große Pool. Auch die Umgebung ist genau das Richtige für einen erholsamen Urlaub ohne großen Trubel. Und so war es rundherum ein perfekter Aufenthalt. Nicht zuletzt auch wegen der sehr sympathischen Vermieter Aleksandra und Dean.

Rakalj is a small village in eastern Istria, situated just a short drive from the seaside (5 min drive). It is the perfect starting point for day trips to the famous cities of Pula, Rovinj and those who love a combination of relaxing and active holidays. In the nearby port there is a well equipped diving centre which offers discovering the amazing underwater world, such as old sunken ships, spectacular underwater caves, cliffs, the thrill of night diving and the splendour abundance of life for beginners and experienced divers. East coast of Istria offers the diversity of beaches and crystal clear sea. The untouched coast reveals peaceful coves with gentle pebbles, fresh cliffs bathed with waves and pure whiteness of smooth stone crowned with aromatic woods. With its numerous coastal and forest paths, this area is great for mountain biking, long relaxation and walks, horse riding, but also as a starting point for excursions and discovering the magical Istria.
