Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Hot Tub

"Sleeping up to eight people in its generously proportioned four bedrooms, the three-story property, which has been in the owner's family for generations, is so well equipped it would be easy not to leave..." Read a full review of Hiza Histria on Mailonline >

Hiza Histria is a striking illustration of Istrian architecture, where the locally renowned Pietra d'Istria, a hardy limestone, was used to build this fine holiday villa over 200 years ago. Renovated in 2014, Hiza Histria is particularly well suited to a large group of friends or families with children. As you enter this Hiza, some of the original features have remained intact. The original wooden ceiling beams allow guests to fully embrace this rustic Hiza’s design.

There are four amply sized bedrooms scattered amongst the ground, first and second floors; each with wonderful views of the Istrian countryside. Due to the recent restoration, the bathrooms are totally fitted out with superior features like quartz countertops, non-slip ceramic tiling and even a hot tub.

The ground floor is the perfect area for relaxation! A serviceable stone wine cellar & bar area can be found directly next to a well-equipped kitchen, with a raging chimney firepit. Make yourself a drink and pop into the billiards room, where a pool table awaits. Next to this room the living and dining areas can be found, which have terrace access to the poolside and garden for some outside fun.

The exteriors grounds are an ideal place to enjoy meals and drinks. A thatched pergola stands above a stone alcove, where outdoor furniture can be found. Both of these areas are ideal for either al fresco dining or some intimate drinks. The overflow swimming pool is a great for a refreshing dip, during those warm summer months. After a quick swim, grab a drink from the bar and recline on the sun loungers surrounding the swimming pool and absorb some Croatian rays!

Formerly known as Histria, the enchanting waterside escape of Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. It’s heart shape shows is almost a physical representation of the passion and culture that can be found here.

Living up to its original Latin name, Istria is steeped in history and palpable heritage featuring many fascinating historical sites that travellers are able to visit. Perhaps the most impressive of which is the Roman Amphitheatre which has been preserved incredibly well, standing in Pula and this amphitheatre is actually the sixth largest arena in the whole of Europe!

Outside of its historical charms, Istria has plenty of other features on offer. Surrounded by the Adriatic Sea, there are many pristine, picturesque beaches and sea front café’s where one can soak up the sun or watch the boats as they travel towards the nearby ports of Italy and Slovenia.

Turning away from the coast, rural Istria is completed with rolling green hills all overflowing with natural emerald beauty. If you are enticed by the lure of wild and rare nature, then take a boat trip to the nearby islands of Brijuni which are not only surrounded by the most intensely stunning beaches but are also covered in greenery boasting rare wild plants including wild cucumber and more.

Region

This heart-shaped peninsula was the birthplace of modern Croatian tourism, and it’s easy to see why. Its history has bestowed it with Italian sophistication, most obviously seen in pastel-painted coastal towns, like romantic Rovinj. But, tear yourself away from the Istrian coast, through the vineyards, olive groves, and dense forests, and you will discover brilliantly preserved medieval towns and villages, where cobbled streets reveal quaint galleries, sweet squares and sea-views.

Reviews

  • A Beautiful Villa

    Posted by Rob on 16/10/2018

    It was a beautiful villa, just a little bit to far away from coast otherwise, it would have got five stars.

  • We will go back!

    Posted by James on 29/09/2018

    The pool is gorgeous, the perfect sun trap with enough shade to get away from the heat. All of the bedrooms are a good size and the kitchen, with its central island, is great for preparing family meals. We would definitely go back.

  • A fantastic find

    Posted by Poppy on 10/09/2018

    Quite simply the best villa we have stayed in in the past 10 years. The property itself was absolutely stunning having been completed to the highest of standards. Plenty of room both inside and out, a great swimming pool and a pool (snooker not swimming) room which was well used! We spent days in the pool and evenings on the terrace watching the sun go down. All rooms had air conditioning, which was good as temperatures during our stay were between 35 and 40 degrees! Nearby was a great restaurant called the Borgonja in the lovely settlement of Visnjan- just 5 minutes away. Last, but not least, the property’s owners Suzanna and Sandy were just great. Always helpful and going that extra mile to ensure our enjoyment and relaxation. Thanks so much to you both for making our holiday in your beautiful villa exceptional. We fully recommend it and hope to be back soon.

  • A beautiful villa

    Posted by Claire on 12/08/2018

    A beautiful spacious villa for multiple couples and their children to enjoy a relaxing holiday. We especially loved the pool table in the cellar and the lovely outdoor eating areas. This villa is a home from home and has everything a family needs to relax and have a brilliant holiday. It's a 25-minute drive from the Aquapark Istralandia, voted one of the best waterparks in Europe and a short drive from the pretty seaside town of Porec with its water inflatables for kids, restaurants, quad biking and other activities.

  • Full of character!

    Posted by Chris on 28/07/2018

    This villa is simply outstanding. It's full of character and we thoroughly enjoyed the owners telling us about the history of it belonging to their grandmother and how they have tastefully decorated it but retained its original charm and tradition. It had everything we wanted, and more, to enjoy our time away. Loved the addition of an honesty bar wine cellar and pool table.

  • Amazing

    Posted by Isabel on 16/08/2017

    This is the most beautiful house I have ever seen in my life and it was one of the best vacations I have ever spent. It is well and calmly situated. And it absolutely looks like it can be seen on the photos. We were very kindly and warmly welcomed by Susi and would like to thank the whole family for this unique experience.
