About Simon Jelf

I live in England with my wife and three young children. My wife and I both work and we try to make it out to our villa at least 4 or 5 times a year. We fell in love with the country when we went on holiday and bought the land to build our lovely villa. We named our villa after the peacefuly location and "miran" means peace in Croatian.

Simon Jelf purchased this villa in 2004

Why Simon Jelf chose Radetići

We love Istria because of the green rolling countryside, vineyards, crystal clear waters and last but not least, the fabulous Mediterranean food. Vilu Miran is in a little hamlet of about 15 houses and is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives in England. With Ryanair, Easyjet and Jet2 now flying to Pula, it is easier than ever to get to our place. The nearby coastal towns are excellent for people watching and eating freshly cooked food.

What makes this villa unique

Vilu Miran is enclosed within stone walls and is therefore safe for families with young children. It has its own heated swimming pool with safety cover and a barbecue & dining area for fantastic al fresco dining. For the keen golfer, there is a new 18 hole championship golf course at the Kempinski Hotel about 45 minutes drive away. A fabulous water park has opened recently and is about 30 minute drive away.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The house is really beautifully built with the reclaimed materials, and beautifully finished inside and out - the pool and the outside lighting were excellent!We've just returned from your beautiful villa.

We had a wonderful time not least because your villa and its location are stunning! The villa truly lived up to all our expectations!

Lovely stay in a lovely villa. The pool was wonderful, great position as it gets the sun all day. Very nice & peaceful - couldn't ask for nicer surroundings.

The landscape & view of the woods around the villa was breathtaking and something I will never forget.

The ice-making fridge is a lifesaver in a 41degree heatwave. Cheers for a great 2 week family holiday in a fantastic villa.

Wonderful holiday in Croatia!

  • 5 of 5

We arrived on Saturday and the receiving of the keys to the villa was unproblematic and fast. The villa itself was very easy to find due to the detailled information we received from the travel agent. The villa itself was amazing. It was very clean and comfortable fitted. The pool was clean and well temperated. We really had a wonderful stay here and are hoping to be back here soon.

Lovely villa holiday

  • 5 of 5

The villa is really spacious, clean, well equipped and has a fabulous heated pool. It was one of the most relaxing holidays we have had in a long time and we really settled into a perfect rhythm of Istrian life. It hit 30 degrees C at one point but the air con easily dealt with the heat. The nearby sv Lovrec has some quant bars perfect for a pre dinner drink and a great pizza restaurant that does take out. We used the stone oven/BBQ 5 nights washing it down with the local wine which is readily available in the shops and the sunsets from the balcony were stunning. Thank you for a fab break/property.
