What Oliver loves…
- The level of attention to detail throughout the designing and decorating of each unique space is indeed breath-taking!
- With the use of your photography studio, this will be a holiday to remember for years to come – not least because you’ll have your album of fantastic photos to take away!
- The endless number of lounges and quiet rooms, in particular, of course, the exquisite spa, allows you all the privacy and peace to enjoy a time of calm relaxation!
- A beautiful fusion of traditional charm and contemporary luxury, Villa Foli utterly oozes character, evident in every design element!
Nestled in an idyllic and secluded location in the forests of Eržišće, Villa Foli is a haven for a large group of family or friends to relish the famous Croatian coastline, sunshine and rural environment!
Built in 1908, this traditional country house was completely renovated in 2016, adding elegant touches of glamour, elegance and luxury, including a spa, to the breath-taking traditional structure!
Indeed, there is even a fully functional photography studio, where you can take your photos and enjoy the professional equipment and assortment of camera kit! The living room has several sofas and chairs in front of the sizeable Smart TV, where you can relax and unwind.
The kitchen is utterly charming, with a fantastic blend of traditional patterns and colours and more modern amenities. There is a large dining area beside the kitchen.
There are six unique and utterly beautiful bedrooms, each designed with the utmost skill and dedication to produce a fascinating and elegant whole. From four-posters to ornate, wireframes, each bed has been carefully selected and crafted to create a chic and comfortable environment.
Four of the rooms are accompanied by private bathrooms, with sleek and sophisticated fittings, while there is a further family bathroom on both the first floor and the ground-floor. One of the double rooms also enjoys access to a quaint first-floor balcony with a coffee table and sun loungers, overlooking the pleasing rural surrounds.
The exceptional garden is incredibly spacious, with various lawns, terraces and even a play area for the youngsters. There is a huge pool surrounded by sun loungers and parasols where you can soak up the sunshine, and an alfresco dining area and a casual seating area on the veranda are the ideal spots to enjoy the early evenings, cherishing the mild climate and the tranquil location.
The highlight is undoubtedly the private spa, complete with a whirlpool bath and a sauna, with a lounging area and shower and fabulous full walls of windows putting you in touch with the natural world around you.
Just 10 minutes away from Učka Nature Park, a sprawling protected area with hiking routes leading to canyons, waterfalls and historic sites, you’ll find an 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 10 minutes away is Labin, once the most extensive mining centre of Croatia and now an art haven filled with galleries! The town overlooks the bay of Rabač, an Istrian paradise with a pebble beach and crystal-clear waters, and the perfect place to try a little snorkelling, swimming and diving!
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.

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 Foli 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.
