If you are looking for a sublime, 5-star luxury villa for 6 guests in a quiet location on the stunning Istria peninsula, then Villa Alopa will be hard to beat! It is absolutely beautiful, chic and stylish.
 
The Istrian peninsula has so much to offer. The scenery is amazing with rolling hills, olive groves, vineyards and a truly amazing indented coastline. The gastronomic feasts offered in the superb restaurants have a strong Italian influence and are accompanied by delicious local wines. You really can’t go wrong on the Istrian peninsula! Villa Alopa is situated in the quiet, historic town of Sveti Lovrec. It is nestled in the immediate hinterland of Vsrar and Porec and is one of the best-preserved, medieval, fortified towns in Istria, 2-3km from the sea.
 
Villa Alopa is in a sunny, elevated position so boasts wonderful countryside and sea views. The outside space is perfect with lawns, a wildlife garden, a fantastic terrace and pool, outside dining gazebo and a playground for children. The planting is fabulous, and the pool, terrace and alfresco dining is totally on point and could not be better. Like everywhere in the villa, no expense has been spared to make this a dynamite holiday location. The pool is unusual with a separate shallow wrap-around level. It is stunning. All of the chic furniture is high-end. The covered outside dining next to the pool and kitchen is superb, but you also have the choice of eating in the other covered dining area in the garden. It has a stone-built barbecue and serving area. It is so attractive and atmospheric.
 
The open-plan living, dining and kitchen space is so trendy with fabulous materials, furniture and light effects. You may well be open-mouthed gazing at the incredible design. The staircase is intriguing, stunningly modern and beautiful. Fantastic use of glass has been made in this villa though the designers have also cleverly managed to make it feel warm and cosy. One of the dazzling bathrooms is on the ground floor.
 
Upstairs you will find three incredibly luxurious bedrooms, each with a pristine, sensational bathroom. One of the beds is a king and the other 2 doubles. All of the bedrooms have access to an excellent terrace boasting heavenly, spectacular views of the pool, garden and out to the azure waters and countryside. Villa Alopa is super cool and trendy and in a fantastic, atmospheric location. It is hard to beat!

What you should know…

  • The last 300m of your drive will be on an unmade road, so it might be a little bumpy!
  • Don’t forget the seawater is cooler than you might think!
  • The hilltop villages and vineyards are amazing. Make sure you make time for a wine tasting while you are in Istria!

Sveti Lovrec has just 60 people living there. It is so quiet but full of history with charming, attractive buildings. There are three churches, the church of St Lawrence built in the 8th century, the parish church of St Martin’s Basilica with its amazing frescoes and the church of St Blaise built in 1460, again with the most incredible frescoes.
 
The villa is 15km south of the wonderful hilltop town of Labin. Labin has two parts, the rambling, cobbled streets and quaintly restored, pastel houses of the Old Town and the new town at the bottom of the hill which contains most of the shops. The Fortress Fortica on top of the town boasts an amazing, panoramic view of the rocky Cres Island and the special resort of Rabac below. Labin has a wealth of picturesque coffee shops, fine seafood restaurants and a rich cultural life including summer jazz and classical concerts.
 
Trget is a small fisherman’s village in the bay of Rasa, close to the villa. It is very pretty with a charming harbour. You can enjoy fresh anchovies, seafood salads, tagliatelle with scampi and delicious, grilled scampi at the village tavern.
 
Just below Labin, Rabac has a pretty, white pebble beach and delightful waterfront promenade. Girandella Beach is a sheltered cove and proudly waves a Blue Flag. There are many cafes and restaurants as well as fun watersports. The inflatable iceberg sea playground is fabulous. Boat trips sail from the harbour to the island of rocky island of Cres.
 
When staying at Villa Alopa you will also want to visit Pula with its magnificent Roman amphitheatre which rivals Rome’s Colisseum and the romantic, historic Rovinj. You will need your camera to photograph the pretty Old Town and the buzzy Farmer’s Market. The 192 steps of the Church of St Euphemia’s bell tower are worth it to admire the fantastic views.

Region

Nestled along Croatia’s enchanting Adriatic coastline, Istria welcomes visitors with open arms and a rich tapestry of experiences waiting to be unraveled. Whether you're seeking adventure in nature, indulgence in culinary delights, a glimpse into history and culture, or simply a warm and inviting atmosphere, the peninsula of Istria has it all.

Istria's diverse and unspoiled landscapes will be the first thing to capture your attention! The region is renowned for its lush green hills, rolling vineyards, and enchanting coastline: the stunning scenery is a playground for nature enthusiasts, hikers, and beachgoers alike.

Offering a remarkable 445 kilometres of pristine coastline, including tranquil coves and sandy beaches, visitors can find plenty of secluded spots to soak up the sun. The clear, azure waters of the Adriatic are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and scuba diving, making it a fantastic choice for those who enjoy an active day of water sports.

Venture inland and you'll discover picturesque villages set amidst rolling hills and verdant forests. Istria is home to over 30 nature reserves - an absolute haven for hikers and cyclists, with an abundance of well-marked trails to explore. The Učka Nature Park, in particular, stands out as a hiking and nature lover's paradise, offering waterfalls, historic villages, and breathtaking panoramic views of Istria's outstanding scenery.

Istria's rich history is woven into the fabric of its towns and cities. An ever popular choice for tourists is the impressive port city of Pula, full of quaint town squares and local restaurants, and home to one of the most well-preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. This ancient arena, known as the Pula Arena, is a testament to Istria's Roman heritage and hosts numerous events, including concerts and film festivals.

The medieval towns of Rovinj and Motovun enchant visitors with their cobbled streets and historic charm. The Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a stunning example of early Christian art and architecture.

Istria's culinary scene is a treat for the taste buds: the region is famous for its truffles, particularly the elusive white truffle, and you can savour dishes infused with this prized delicacy in charming local restaurants across the region. Wine and olive oil lovers will find joy in Istria's vineyards and olive groves, offering tastings and insights into traditional production methods. Fresh seafood, often served with a Mediterranean twist, is a staple that you can enjoy at quaint waterfront eateries along the coastline.

One of the most enduring memories visitors take away from Istria is the warmth of its people. The locals are known for their friendly, welcoming nature and their willingness to share their traditions and stories with tourists. You'll find yourself immersed in the local way of life, whether you're exploring ancient towns or enjoying a meal in a family-run tavern.

Istria is easily accessible, with Pula Airport serving as a major gateway. Once you arrive, navigating the region is a breeze with well-maintained roads connecting major towns and villages. Language barriers are minimal, thanks to the widespread use of English, Italian, and German, alongside the local Croatian language.

Istria’s unique blend of pristine landscapes, rich traditions, and warm-hearted locals creates an experience that will linger in your memories long after you've returned home.

    A beautiful house with beautiful property. The entire property is fenced, so perfect for a vacation with dog. The house is very quiet. The pool is great, unfortunately not heated. The beach is a bit distant but within 20 minutes.
