Overview

About the property

Villa in Groznjan, Nr. Buje, Istria, Croatia - Newly Built To Highest Specifications, Infinity Pool, Wine Cellar, Very Peaceful Location

Set amidst Croatia's best wine makers and situated between two medieval towns famed for their truffle based cuisine and cultural events, Casa Paranzana is a hilltop family owned villa offering breathtaking views over vineyards, olive groves and a sparkling backdrop of the Adriatic Sea. Only 20 min drive from the coastline, the young owners love using the villa for both getting away from it all and hosting family and friends wanting to combine the rural and seaside in a vacation. The owners have stayed true to traditional Istrian architecture and used their extensive travels to create a luxurious, eclectic interior combined with a very homely feel, all designed to the highest standards. The villa is located in the village of Biloslavi, 5km from Groznjan.

About Lea Calvert

We are a young Croatian/Australian family, living in Notting Hill, London, and are very passionate about travel! We enjoy staying in unique and beautiful places around the world and love accommodation that embraces stylish comfort. We hope that our villa will attract like-minded guests and offer them a memorable holiday in Croatia.

Why Lea Calvert chose Istria

We bought the property because we loved the view and the serenity. It is a beautiful area with lots of things to enjoy, including great food (including truffles) and wine. It is a unique rural setting with an unrivalled view and easy access to the beach.

What makes this villa unique

You will enjoy state of the art design with a lot of details collected around the world. It is a unique property in it's warm luxurious style, combined with a calm and naturally beautiful setting. The infinity pool offers magnificent views. The hilltop villages surrounding the property are quaint and well known for their cultural events, including an international film festival in Motovun and an international Jazz festival in Groznjan. They are beautiful places to enjoy your holiday.

wonderful

  • 5 of 5

beautiful views of the valley! great location for the house away from the busy roads and too many people yet very close drive to all the amenities. surprisingly convenient to fly in for the weekend as well. house really nicely/tastefully done, with kids in mind too. our 4 yr old boy is similar age to the owners and loved exploring the house. whilst on top of a very steep hill the house also is on a really picturesque path to groznjian for an evening walk/cycle. highly highly recommended

Fabulous Istrian experience

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this amazing luxury villa. It was even more beautiful than the photos, and with all the modern conveniences. The view over the countryside from the infinity pool was stunning. Everything was clean and well-maintained. Highly recommended.

Stunning modern villa with breathtaking views

  • 5 of 5

This is the perfect villa for a family get away. Situated right on the top of a hill the views are breathtaking. Everywhere in the house from the shower in the masterbedroom to the infinite pool in the garden you can look out over the entire valley and vineyards below. The house itself is very comfortable and tastefully decorated with high quality modern fixtures, yet retaining much of the traditional feel. There is a wonderful veranda from which you can enjoy a bbq or a sunset glass local wine (great little winery 3min away and plenty more within 15 min drive). The owners, Adrian and Lea (who is Croatian) were gave us plenty of first hand recommendations on the surrounding area including some great fun stuff to do with our little 20 month old boy on the coast (only 15min easy drive away). There is another stunning little hill top village 10min drive down a track where we had a wonderful evening meal there of steak with local truffle sauce. We had no idea Croatia had so much to offer - the location, the weather, the food and this incredible villa made it a trip we'd never forget and would hugely recommend to anyone.
