What Oliver loves…
- Villa Banova is the home for making special memories with the whole group – and with table football on the veranda and a volley-ball net in the pool, there’s fun for all, whatever the weather!
- Pets are welcome at this villa, so there’s no need to leave your furry friends at home, bring them along – they’ll love it!
- This vast garden is perfect for any group looking for a little fun and games, as well as tranquil relaxation and of course, a little sun-bathing!
- The traditional Mediterranean architecture blends wonderfully with the utterly contemporary furniture within, combining the beauty of old and new in one elegant home!
Nestled 100m from the centre of the calm village of Bale, a quaint and traditional spot typical of the enchanting Istria region, Villa Banova is ideal for a group looking for a peaceful home-from-home.
Built in just 2018, this villa is brimming with contemporary delights, including a private pool in the expansive gardens and sleek and stylish interior design. The living room is modern, with a fabulous big sofa for all the group to gather on in front of both the large TV and the traditional fireplace.
There is a dining table alongside this, in a delightful open plan style that creates a warm, friendly atmosphere between the interior living spaces. The dining table sits within the kitchen space, another modern masterpiece with a fantastic monochrome design and beautiful traditional tiling.
There are four double bedrooms, one on the ground floor with an ensuite bathroom, ideal for those with reduced mobility, and three more on the first floor. All four rooms have to air-condition and are incredibly spacious, with plenty of built-in storage. Each is equipped with a private bathroom, two of which have a bathtub while the other two have delightful walk-in showers.
In the expansive garden, there is a large lawn, with space for all the group to join together. At the centre, there is a beautiful private pool, complete with an inflatable volleyball/badminton net! Around the pool are several sun-loungers where you can relax and soak up a little sunshine and on the veranda there are darts, and even table football for keeping the kids (and big kids!) entertained, and sparking up a little healthy competition.
With a barbeque and alfresco dining area, you can dine in style under the sunshine or stars and make the most of the pleasant climate of Croatia. Under an hour away from Učka Nature Park, a sprawling protected area with hiking routes leading to canyons, waterfalls and historic sites, you’ll find unspoilt nature a stone’s throw away.
One-third of the Istrian territory is forested, and the rest is carpeted with vineyards, olive trees, pastures and orchards, with ancient walled cities perched atop hills in the mountainous landscape, so you need merely stroll out of your front door to find the richness of Istria.

Just 15 minutes away, you can’t miss the delightful Venetian coastal town of Rovinj half-way up the western coastline. Wander the old city, with its Venetian architecture and marble streets and admire the views across the marina before settling for a meal in one of its many beautiful sea-side restaurants. And be sure to stop off in Lim Bay while you’re there – a dramatic Fjord stretching for miles inland!
A charming heart-shaped peninsula in the north-west of Croatia, Istria is warm, welcoming and perfectly-sized – you can drive the length in around an hour, putting everything within easy reach!
From breath-taking scenery, rich history and a world-famous culinary scene – you will find it all in Istria! As a former part of the Venetian Republic, this region has seen many rulers from the Romans, Byzantines and Austro-Hungarians to the Italians and Yugoslavians. Now, a myriad of enchanting towns and villages, rich in history and culture, are nestled among the undulating countryside.
Active holiday-makers will be delighted with the offerings: from windsurfing in Medulin to scuba diving in the Brijuni National park and rock climbing, hang-gliding and walking in Buzet along the 15km ‘seven waterfalls’ walk, Istria has it all.
Both along the dramatic coastal paths and in the mountains inland, you will find an abundance of natural paths for cycling (including the scenic Parenzana route over an old railway line from Viznada to the Slovenian border) and rugged off-road hiking trails. Pick up a trail-map from any of the Tourist Offices, for loads of well-marked routes around the coast and in the Cape Kamenjak.
Much like its neighbouring Italy, Istria is a gastronome’s paradise, home to world-class cuisine and endless rows of vineyards. Be sure to try the local wines, which are often sweet and fruity, using a wide variety of grapes including white Malvasia, red Terrano and Moscato.
Istria is especially famous for its truffles, which you will find served with any dish and sauce! Truffle flavoured olive oil is a typical product of the region, and indeed, you will hardly find a village which does not have its own Olive oil ‘supermarket’!
Both Rijeka and Pula have international airports within a short drive of the villa, while Pula is the central hub for those getting ferries, although there is a daily ferry between Poreč and Venice.
Restaurants & Shops
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.
Villa Banova is the ideal home for your family holiday. With a fabulous array of onsite facilities and so much to explore nearby you can guarantee making memories to treasure as well as a little peace and quiet while the kids get stuck in!
In the heart-shaped bubble of Istria, you will find many activities specifically designed for families, including the two sensational water parks of Aquapark Istralandia near Novigrad and Aquapark Aquacolors in Poreč.
There is also the Dino Park just outside the town of Funtana where the kids can enjoy seeing life-size dinosaurs in the wilderness, an amusement park and even a dino shooting range!
On the theme of Dinosaurs, just a short drive from Pula, on the very southern tip of Istria, is the Kamenjak National Park where you can follow the ‘Dinosaur Path’ to discover dinosaur footprints and admire stunning views over the bay.
All along the coastline you will find opportunities to rent boats, pedalos and snorkelling equipment (or even scuba diving if you’re feeling up to it!) to enjoy the pristine beaches and bays, while inland among the deep green, rolling mountains there are some of the most beautiful cycling and hiking trails in Europe.
