Villa Olea is located in a small and quiet village called Paladini. Villa is nested on a unique elevated position that offers perfect privacy and breath taking views to lake Butoniga and magical surroundings. First larger city is Buzet that is widely known as the 'City of Truffles' since the forests along the Mirna River are especially rich in this divine tuber. Buzet, a town placed on a hill in the middle of the fruitful valley of the Mirna River. Inhabited already in prehistory, it was fortified during the Roman rule. The central square with the parochial church of the Blessed Virgin Mary’s Assumption, is the very core of the old town. While here, be sure not to miss a visit to the County Museum of Buzet and its surroundings. In the surroundings of Buzet there are some very well preserved medieval towns.
Villa Olea ist großartig, sehr geräumig, sehr schöne Gegend, super nette Vermieter. Die Trüffel-Verkostung war noch die Krönung des ganzen Aufenthaltes.
Eine wunderschöne, sehr gepflegte Villa. Die Lage ist wunderbar wenn man die Ruhe sucht. So nette und kinderfreundliche Vermieter haben wir noch nie erlebt. Wir waren rundum zufrieden und werden nächstes Jahr wieder hin fahren.

We have just returned from Villa Olea/Maslinas after two perfect weeks. Radmilla and Kristina could not have been more helpful. The villa is amazing. Better even than the description. The views from the balcony are incredible and Paladini is a perfect get away from the hustle and bustle of just about anywhere in the world. I would thoroughly recommend this to anyone who wants a quiet relaxing holiday in perfect surroundings in an amazing villa.
This is the best villa that we have ever stayed in - and we have stayed in a lot!!!
