Flanked by Island Cres and the Adriatic Sea, Villa Civana is a luxury holiday home for large families and groups of friends. Nestled in Istria, one of the most multicultural regions of Croatia, it sleeps eight guests in four bedrooms.

Spend days savouring a wealth of lush meadows and sweeping landscapes that surround the property. If beaches are your thing, you’re in for a treat. While the nearest one is 2 kms away. After a long day, unwind in the Swedish sauna or relax your weary muscles in the jacuzzi by the private deck. Spend hours of recreational time in the outdoor  pool or curl up with a book on comfy sun loungers.

The villa offers ample space for endless stargazing and sundowner cocktails. Fire up the BBQ on wintery evenings and grab a spot at the outdoor dining table for cosy al-fresco meals.  

The interiors are equally divine. Dewy cement walls, wooden floors and furnishings in natural tones, all bring elements of tranquillity, whilst you marvel at the astonishing views of the sea from floor-to-ceiling glass windows featured in every room.

The living area is bright and airy, artfully blending a chic mix of rustic and modern elements. Lemon-yellow seating and vibrant interiors add a playful charm. Whip up your favourite cuisine in the adjoining, open-plan kitchen. Modern and well-equipped, it features sleek countertops and soothing white cabinetry.

You’re guaranteed a comfortable night’s sleep in the four inviting bedrooms. Each of them comes with a double bed and private bathroom. One of the bedrooms has a large bathtub set against lush Mediterranean landscapes.  

Epitomising a storybook holiday come to life, Villa Civana promises a perfect family-friendly retreat with ultra-glam facilities and magical vistas.

Istria is a haven for nature lovers and history buffs. With a unique dialect of its own and especially warm hospitality, it draws travellers from far and wide.

The age-soaked ruins and mediaeval coastal towns here will take you back in time. With clean coastlines and many secluded spots, you’re promised many seaside adventures away from touristy crowd.

Dig into sumptuous flavours at a local restaurant, in the nearby Rabac. If you’re visiting late in the summer or early fall, don’t miss your chance to enjoy some of the most exquisite truffles at the truffle festival.

Spend an afternoon exploring charming hilltop villages, known for their laid-back ambience and high-quality wine. Try the white malvasija wine or red teran, which can easily be found in local supermarkets.

Go olive oil tasting, spend time exploring picturesque streets and sample pršut — Croatia’s version of prosciutto.  

A tour of the artists' colonies of Grožnjan and Buzet is a no-brainer. If you want to spend the day in the lap of nature, cycle or hike through lush green routes, many of which take you to family farms and coastal regions of the peninsula

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.
