Villa Grimaldi offers a laid-back, hillside holiday home in the very heart of Istria. The Villa can accommodate up to seven guests in complete comfort with three comfortably furnished bedrooms. Located in the peaceful village of Previž, it’s the perfect place to escape to the beautiful Croatian countryside, enjoying some quiet time with your loved ones, whilst beautiful beaches and bustling tourist towns can all be reached within a 45-minute drive.

Entering the Villa, you will find yourself in the relaxed open-plan living area. A large sofa and comfortable armchairs frame the space, positioned so you can gather talking, laughing, watching television or gazing out the patio doors to the views beyond, unwinding into the evening. Behind the sofa, a large dining table can seat all the guests. Placed close to the warm glow of natural light that streams through the adjacent windows. The family dining table provides the perfect spot for long breakfasts and social evening meals, embracing time together as a group. The kitchen completes the open-plan space, with ample space to cook up your favourite dishes, maybe even taking some inspiration from the local ingredients.

A spacious hallway links all the rooms together. Each bedroom is homely, with enough space to fully unpack and settle in. There are two bathrooms for your convenience, both with the same laid-back, relaxed style as the rest of the Villa.

Outside, Villa Grimaldi begins to show off! Patio doors open out to the private pool and terrace, where a sequence of spaces allow you to indulge in the amazing Istrian climate, with the scent of pine trees filling the air. Be sure to take a dip in the pool to cool off in the hotter hours of the day. Otherwise, the shaded dining area and sun loungers with their parasols offer some respite from the sun. Alfresco dining is a must, and for guests who love to barbecue, the poolside barbecue is a real treat.

This lovingly decorated Villa is especially popular for families with children, with a trampoline, badminton, table tennis, swings, and table football to keep the little ones occupied all day long.

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.
