Edmund, Lisa & Harvey fell in love with Istria ten years ago. They renovated 'Casa Knauer' from an old stone ruin to how it looks today.

Why ED KNAUER chose Croatia

Our location is key. We are very close to the sea.

Also very close to town (Umag) & supermarkets.

We are also very well located to visit inland Istria with a back road to Buje.

Following onto Groznjan & many vineyards.

Also we use Trieste airport in Italy. 1 1/2 hour drive as we are close to the Slovenian border. Ryanair London to Trieste fly everyday and very cheap.

What makes this villa unique

Within seconds from our Villa you are at Ca'Nova restaurant.

Greeted by the owner, our friend Dario who's two bands play frequently there.

Also a pizzeria and small bar. Sample the fillet steak from the grill and the house white wine then stumble a few metres home. Because our pool is on the small side it is never too cold in the summer. Especialy late at night !
