Villa Principi

Villa Principi

For those that are looking to totally immerse themselves into the fascinating history of Istria, the enchanting Villa Principi is the ideal choice. Perched at the edge of an impossibly picturesque old stone village, surrounded by miles and miles of beautifully kept olive groves, vineyards and wooded hills, the villa has been lovingly restored preserving the heritage of this delightful home. Its timeless appearance belies interiors that have been decorated with a great deal of charm and taste and furnished throughout with ... Read more beautiful, inviting sofas and armchairs, antiques and artefacts, all softened with warm rugs and cushions. The traditional and comfortable style combining wood-beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls provides a lovely relaxing rustic ambiance, while the colourful wallpapers pack it with retro chic. The four air-conditioned bedrooms, each with a modern ensuite bathroom, are distributed over three floors - two are on the upmost, one on the middle and the fourth on the lowest. The cosy living room with a minimalist wood-burning stove is on the middle floor, while the kitchen and dining area are at the lowest, allowing direct access to the private solar heated swimming pool. The paved pool terrace boasts a beautiful authentic stone built barbecue house and an al fresco dining area where guests can serve anything from a simple breakfast to a gourmet dinner, the abundance of fresh produce available in this area offering plenty of inspiration. Beautiful stone walls define the lawned garden laced with a variety of flowers, herbs and green hedges. There is a deep sense of beauty, of peace and of perfection. All with a touch of magic something that only lots of love and attention to even the smallest of detail can create. Winding roads lead from the village to some of the prettiest villages and most interesting towns of Central Istria, all within a short drive.

5 Villa Principi
Name: Goggins family
Date: 24.10.2016
We stayed in Villa Principi for two weeks in September 2016. The house is large and comfortable, with excellently renovated bathrooms to the best modern standard, even on the top floors the water pressure was very good. The master bedrooms are generous with lots of space and the kitchen has everything necessary. Great evenings in the outhouse, eating the BBQ and drinking local wine, the pool was really clean and the secure grounds were safe for 8 year old kids and a very active toddler. The owners were pleasant hosts, offering assistance when necessary, but staying away otherwise. Wifi worked without a hitch and the quite surroundings allowed us to relax. One of the best houses we rented for while now.

We thoroughly enjoyed our week long stay at Casa dei Principe. If you appreciate staying in beautifully restored properties then you will love this villa. The whole family loved the swimming pool especially in the evenings under the star filled Istrian sky. We loved Grozjnan and the Jazz festival, Opatlija, Motovun, Umag Wibit and Istralandia waterparks, Lovran, Rovinj, the countryside and great food and wine! Not to forget Martina and Demetri the helpful owners. GPS or an up to date road map is essential BEFORE you arrive!!!
