This captivating villa has a glittering turquoise pool and so much space to enjoy the great outdoors. With plenty of space for the whole family to enjoy a swim, this pool glows a luminescent green in the evenings. There's a manicured lawn and lots of decking space, sun loungers and umbrellas for those who want to relax by the pool. There is also a convenient outdoor shower.
The exteriors of the villas are classic Mediterranean white, with modern open sides and pillars. All around the villa, there is a backdrop of lush greenery, vibrant flowers and lots of palm trees, which adds to the tropical atmosphere. There's a large courtyard and free parking is available at a location nearby.
There's an outdoor lounge on the terrace, with cosy furniture woven from grey rattan, semi-circle ergonomic armchairs and a coffee table. Guests can share an alfresco meal around the table with bench seating. Step inside to find four lovely bedrooms and a living space, complete with a flat-screen television with satellite channels. The interiors are designed in a fresh, minimalist style with subtle splashes of blue and green. Air conditioning is available throughout the villa to keep you comfortable.
There's a fully-equipped kitchen, with plenty of prep space and a large American fridge. Stylish pendant lighting drapes over a breakfast bar, complete with interesting bar stools. This is the perfect spot to perch and enjoy a bite to eat.
The bedrooms all have large beds and have crisp white walls. Pale wood, dashes of floral print and sunset-themed art all add a dash of colour and character. Some rooms have views of the soaring trees outside, through large windows that provide lots of natural light. One room has a small desk - perfect for writing some holiday postcards. Three of the bedrooms have their own bathrooms with a bathtub or shower. The bedrooms are carefully designed to facilitate an excellent night's sleep after a busy day sightseeing and exploring the Istrian coast.

This villa is located in Poreč, a charming area full of things to see and do and also home to gorgeous beaches. All are less than two miles from the property. Nearby, Poreč has a captivating main square within the Old Town, with charming cobblestone streets, Roman walls and colourful cafes. It's a great spot for people watching and strolling down to the harbour, where you can take a boat trip to spot dolphins at sunset.
Istria has a strong Italian influence, being just two hours from Venice and a Roman history. It's easy to hop across the border and spend a day exploring Italy during your holiday. The Istrian heart-shaped coastline is absolutely stunning and a little less touristy than other areas in Croatia.
There's no shortage of beaches in the area - Borik beach is just 800m away, with a pebbly shoreline and glittering waters. You can play beach volleyball and miniature golf, or just go for a relaxing swim in the sea. Borik beach has a great view of the Old Town and it is accessible for wheelchair users. For a more natural beach, blue-flag Oliva beach is perfect. The beach is on the island of St. Nikola and accessed by a five-minute boat ride. Oliva has a forest of oak and pine trees, a pebbly coast and feels unspoilt.
The food of Istria is a reason to visit in itself, as the region is famous for its delicious gastronomy and fresh ingredients. A local favourite is pljukanci, a hand-rolled pasta dish served with all manner of sauces. In the winter, the aroma of hot roasted chestnuts wafts around the centre. Istria is also famous for its wine - you can take a tour of a winery or vineyard and enjoy a glass of Refošk or Malvazija. Admire the views of rolling hills and rows of grapes.
The Euphrasian Basilica is one of the most important sights in the Istrian area. It is a World Heritage Site and dates back to the 6th-century. The basilica was inspired by Byzantine art and features breathtaking blue and gold mosaics, carved arches and geometric marble designs. Climb up the bell tower to get an outstanding view of Poreč. Zuccato Gallery is the place to check out some vibrant art in a Gothic palace. There's an array of temporary exhibitions to explore.
Anyone visiting Istria should take a day trip to Brijuni National Park, an archipelago of 14 small islands that can be reached by boat from Pula. The islands are famous for their natural beauty and indigenous flora and fauna. Enjoy a scenic boat ride with views of the southwestern peninsula before you reach. There are dinosaur footprints in four areas on the largest island, Viliki Brijuni, and many other archaeological wonders.

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.
Istria is a great area for families travelling with children, as there's plenty for little ones and teenagers alike to do. The villa has lots of space for kids to relax and enjoy the sunshine, not to mention the gorgeous pool. There's plenty of space to splash around and show off their swimming skills. Family cycling tours are popular in the Istria area - exploring on two wheels is a great way to soak up the sights.
Poreč itself is a lovely town for kids to explore, with its charming cobblestoned streets and lovely harbour. A leisurely stroll around town and popping into cute cafes for an ice cream should keep them busy for a while.
Aquapark Istrialanda is just 7 miles from the villa - filled with 20 water rides and the largest wave pool in the Mediterranean. A water park is always a popular idea with kids - thrillseekers will love the high-energy water slides. Little ones get their own dedicated pool with a water castle, pirate ship and some smaller water slides. The park has enough to keep them entertained for a full day out.
Adventure-loving kids will adore Glavani Park, with its soaring high ropes course with a range of heights. There is a zip line that is 113 metres long - kids will zoom through the treetops and cross the Devil's Causeway suspension bridge.
Dinopark Funtana is the place to take kids who love dinosaurs - there are moving life-size dinosaurs and circus shows. Plenty of quirky activities are on offer, like a dino-themed shooting range. The park is currently being renovated, but will reopen in April in time for summer holiday fun.
Of course, most kids will be eager for a beach day - while the Istrian beaches are pebbly or made up of fine rocks rather than sand, they're certainly beautiful. Some beaches are shallow, making them perfect for little ones' first outings in the sea. Borik beach, which is particularly close to the villa, is especially well suited for kids. They can get involved in the beach sports or there is a special Kids Club that they can attend.
