High quality Istrian stone villa, 4 bedrooms, private pool, WiFi

Overview

Property

Updated: 20-Nov-2016
4 bedrooms (3 x doubles, 1 x twin), 3 bathrooms, Sleeps 8 (+1), private pool

In the small medieval Istrian village of Sovinjak, Casa ValSol was built in 2007 with both reclaimed and modern material, the villa offers spacious accommodation for 8 persons. Ideal for large groups or two families.

Large kitchen/diner leading onto covered terrace overlooking the pool and the lush green scenery beyond. Spacious living room with traditional open fireplace, satellite TV, internet and doors to pool terrace. Within 200m walking distance of the local family run restaurant, Santa Terra, the villa is also a truly quiet retreat from both daily working life and from the more hectic tourist towns and yet is within easy travelling distance of all that Istria has to offer.

A Welcome Refreshment Pack is there for your arrival and our professional Management Service team can help you organise a variety of outings and activities including: private chef * bike tours * wine/olive oil tours * boat excursions * horse riding * kayak tours * paddleboarding * truffle hunting * poolside massages * spa treatments * venice day trip *

The nearest town is Buzet, the 'City of Truffles', and the villa is also close to the famous Toklarija restaurant, a tiny place carved out of an old olive mill in the wine-growing hamlet of Sovinjsko Polje

On a historical note, Sovinjak is reputed to be the place that provided the wife of the Emperor Augustus with her preferred wine and the village is also the place of the world's first ever bauxite mine! (No longer active!)

About the Owner

We use the villa for our own recreation, and rent it out to other families when not in use by ourselves. We bought the villa new in 2007. When we are not in the villa, it is taken care of by a very nice English lady. She takes care of the villa, and guides and help our renters during their vacation. Families that have rented our villa, have all been pleased with their stay, and we make pride in pleasing every family who stays in our villa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely villa with fantastic views – we’ve really enjoyed our stay. Highlights –Porec – swimming and fun trip on The Yellow Submarine. A good meal in Savage restaurant. Pula-loved the ampi-theatre but too busy to visit. Motovun- good walk around the cobbled streets – amazing view. Thanks for BBQ-enjoyed a few good meals on that!

Wonderful Casa Valsol

  • 5 of 5

The villa is absolutely wonderful and situated in a beautiful, quiet part of Istria. it s exceptionally large and very comfortable. The pool area is the star attraction and the kids spent many days enjoying themselves for hours on end. The views from the villa are stunning. The local restaurant Konoba Santa Terra is a delight and the owners helped to make our holiday extra special, even letting the kids make the hand made pasta for the next days meals! The views from the restaurant terrace as the sun went down were magical. The villa is so close to many of Istria's food and cultural attractions and we would recommend getting olive oil from Ipsa and trying the Frank Arman wine tasting before purchasing some bottles!

We will definitely be returning because the villa was wonderful and had everything we wanted. The area is beautiful and so much nicer than the coastal areas. For us it made for a dream holiday.

We had a fantastic holiday in this beautiful, well equipped villa. The property is set in a lovely garden with a great swimming pool and amazing views. The property has everything you could possibly wish for, I couldn't recommend it highly enough.

Välutrustat stort hus

  • 4 of 5

Vi hade en mycket bra semester i huset. Det är nog det hus vi hyrt som varit bäst utrustat. Luftkonditioneringen gick sönder i ett rum och det fixades redan samma dag. Utsikten är fantastisk och det var mysigt att bo i en mycket liten by. Nackdelen var att det saknades affär eller bageri däremot finns en Konoba med mycket trevlig personal och god mat. Läget får sägas vara centralt, vi nådde vardera kust på ca 40 min. Slovakien är heller inte långt bort. Allt fungerade mycket bra.

Perfect Holidays in exclusiv villa!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there in 2011 for one week. The house is wonderfull with a excellent contents, furniture & fixtures. The place is quiet and has a perfect view over the valley. They way the supermarket is short (about 10 min by car) and by the new motorway you can explore Istrian from it's center.

The villa is located on the edge of the hilltop village of Sovinjak, 300 meters above sea level. Built into the hillside, the villa has 180 degree views over the rolling hills and nearby hilltop towns.

Sovinjak is located near the town of Buzet, between the cosy east coast and the marvellous west coast. This area has some of Istria's best restaurants, with their truffle specialities. There is also a small konoba in the village, about 200m from the villa. The valley is one of the best truffle, olive oil and wine districts of Croatia. Within a 20 minute drive are the artistic medieval hilltop villages of Motovun (film festival) and Groznjan (art and ceramic). The old aristocratic city of Opatija is also only 45 minutes from the villa.
