Villa Monte Istra

Villa Monte Istra

If you’re looking for a special holiday retreat with a ‘wow’ factor, Villa Monte Istra certainly has it in abundance. Words are hard to describe how magical the villa, the grounds and the setting are. Faced with one of the most beautiful views in Istria, you just cannot resist feasting your eyes on the glorious rolling hills and the sparkling Adriatic in the distance.
The villa itself is the epitome of style and grace, divided into three immaculately restored stone houses: Flying Roses, Bellevue and Hiza. The property’s ... Read more immense character and charm has been enhanced with an exquisite blend of carefully chosen antiques, beautiful artwork and high quality contemporary fittings, offering a taste of traditional Istrian lifestyle yet with an air of relaxed sophistication.
House Hiza exudes old-word charm with a rustic dining room and a fully equipped kitchen on the ground floor and a cosy living room and double bedroom on the upper floor.
The House Flying Roses on the other hand is contemporary in style with a striking open plan living and dining area leading to the professionally-equipped kitchen on the ground floor and two panoramic double bedrooms on the first floor.
Bellevue offers two more double bedrooms, one for every floor. Each of the 5 bedrooms has a private bathroom as stylish as the rest of the interior.
It is, however, the outside area what Villa Monte Istra is all about, offering many a panoramic terrace, beautiful al fresco dining area with barbecue, inviting Jacuzzi and the irresistible infinity pool complete with hydro massage, melting into the spectacular backdrop. Surrounding all this are 35000 m2 of the property’s private land, including an idyllic olive grove and organic vegetable garden at free disposal. There is, of course, plenty of space for a fun game of volleyball, badminton or bocce. The views, in case you needed reminding, are bewitching, no matter where you look, guaranteed to create lasting memories with your loved ones.

5 Villa Monte Istra
Name: Klaus Zehrer
Date: 22.06.2017
Wir haben die Häuser für einen 14tägigen Urlaub gebucht. Der beste und schönste Urlaub, den wir je hatten. Unsere Gastgeber waren sehr freundlich und großzügig. Wir durften in den Gärten diveres Beerenobst, Salat, Zwiebel, Knoblauch, Zucchini, Gurken und vieles mehr ernten. Frisch und bio! Unsere Kinder waren begeistert! Die Gastgeberfamilie hat uns sogar bei unserer Ankunft diverse Köstlichkeiten in unseren Kühlschrank gelegt... Und das hauseigene Olivenöl auch so lecker! Die Häuser stehen auf einer Anhöhe, die Aussicht auf das Künstlerdorf Grožnjan, die hügelige Umgebung, sowie der Blick auf das Meer sind unvergleichlich traumhaft. So etwas wird man in Istrien nicht noch einmal finden! An einem Tag sahen wir sogar die Südalpen. Perfekt für alle Ruhebedürftigen, die im Urlaub unter sich bleiben möchten. Besonders erwähnen möchten wir die zauberhaften Rosen, den duftenden Lavendel, die liebevolle Ausstattung der Gärten (das kommt alles auf den Bildern nicht so richtig zur Geltung), die nagelneue Poolanlage, sowie die geschmackvolle und abwechslungsreiche Einrichtung der drei Häuser. Wir hatten auch unseren Hund im Urlaub dabei, auch er fühlte sich "pudelwohl". Wir werden Villa Monte Istra unseren Freunden weiterempfehlen und auch selbst wieder buchen.
