What Oliver loves…
- Just a twenty-minute walk to the beach, perfect for a morning stroll!
- Animals are allowed at this villa, so there’s no need to leave your furry friends at home, bring them along – they’ll love it!
- With a fabulous Jacuzzi on the terrace, you can relax, unwind and surrender to the hydro-massaging jets after a long day at the beach or exploring the wild surrounding landscape!
- The garden features a huge private pool for your enjoyment – as well as a large children’s play area and even a trampoline to keep the kids happy too!
Tucked away in the small village of Vabriga, Villa Bibali offers eight lucky guests the opportunity to experience the charming rural life of Istria, just a 20-minute walk from the beach!
Built in just 2012, the villa is delightfully modern and comfortable, with a beautiful historical charm to it. Elegant wooden beams stretch across the vaulted ceiling and complement the wood furnishings and traditional interior design.
There is a large sofa in front of the satellite TV, and a dining area alongside this with room for all the group around the fabulous wooden table. The traditionally styled, fully-equipped kitchen sits beside the table, with the full array of mod cons and everything you could need to whip up a feast!
There are three double rooms and one twin, with air-conditioning in one of the doubles. The twin room is ideal for children, with night lights and even an extra-large teddy bear for them! Both ground-floor double bedrooms enjoy direct access to the terrace! There are three large bathrooms, each with a shower.
In the garden the private pool sits centrally, inviting guests into its refreshing depths under the sunshine! There is also a massive Jacuzzi for up to six people, where you can enjoy the soothing massage of the warm water as you admire the sunset in the distance!
A barbeque and outdoor dining area ensure you can indulge in alfresco meals in style. A trampoline and a play area, complete with a swing, slide and seesaw, provides kids with a little entertainment – so you can all enjoy your holiday together!
The Slovenian border is under 30 minutes away, and the Italian border under an hour – so why not check out a couple of other countries while you’re here? And for adventures on your doorstep, 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!

Villa Bibali is the ideal home for beach-fans, with the coast just 1500 metres away! Meanwhile, the nearby town of Novigrad has a beautiful Marina lined with charming cafes and restaurants. Also nearby is Poreč, a larger city of culture, tourism, sport and entertainment, with one of the most important Western Byzantine churches outside Italy – and it’s also the party hub of the peninsula!
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 see a village which does not have its own Olive oil ‘supermarket’!
Unlike the rest of Croatia, Istrian food tends to be light and heavily influenced by its Italian neighbours. Generally, pasta, gnocchi, risotto and polenta accompany each meal, while the coastal areas specialise in a fantastic array of seafood, including scampi, squid and sole and inland it is more common to find prosciutto, or ‘pršut’, and sausages.
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 Bibali 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.
