An attractive 6-bedroom villa in the northern part of Croatian Istria, Villa Harlequin is located close to the local amenities of Brtonigla. Less than 10 minutes’ drive from the Aquapark Istralandia water-park, this stylish villa can accommodate up to 14 guests and features an impressive outdoor pool and terrace.

This villa has a large amount of outdoor space where you can enjoy the beauty of the Istrian peninsula. Soak up the reliable sunshine by the pool, where plenty of sun loungers and seating can be found. The cosy poolside lounge is a particularly nice spot to share drinks and nibbles in the evenings. You also have a barbecue and an outdoor dining area, plus another covered one elsewhere.

Inside, this modern villa has an attractive open-plan living area with more seating and dining space and direct access to the pool. Equipped with air-conditioning and a large flatscreen TV, it all leads through to a well-equipped kitchen with a dishwasher, microwave, coffee machine and everything else you could need. A central sweeping staircase is an eye-catching detail which takes you up to the beautiful bedrooms.

Each bedroom is elegantly furnished and supremely comfortable, with a double bed and en suite bathroom. Additional sofa-beds are provided in one bedroom and the living room. Some rooms also lead out to their private terrace, with all displaying immaculate design and attention to detail.

Brtonigla’s location is ideal for visiting popular coastal towns in the region such as Novigrad and Poreč, the first of these being just 12 minutes’ drive from Brtonigla. Also within a 30-40 minute drive are the Slovenian resorts of Portorož and Piran, as Brtonigla lies on a direct route to the nearby border, where the region of Istria continues.

Among the attractions on the Croatian side is Poreč’s Roman Old Town, home to the Episcopal complex of Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Quieter Novigrad is a charming place with a harbour full of fishermen and, not coincidentally, some excellent seafood restaurants.

An attractive small town around 8km inland, Brtonigla is home to rustic old buildings and some charming restaurants and cafés. It’s a great place to try some of the excellent food and drink that is produced in the region, with visits to wineries and local artisan producers worth checking out.

This bike-friendly town is well connected, with cycle paths leading to many of the surrounding towns and villages. This is a great way to admire the beauty of Istria. It won’t take too long to reach the coast and visit the likes of Mareda and Novigrad which lie to the south-west of Brtonigla.

Perhaps the main reason many people visit the area is the nearby presence of Aquapark Istralandia, considered to be one of the best water-parks in the whole of Europe – and, indeed, the world. The first of its kind in Croatia, it has maintained its reputation as the best in the land, so it’s a good bet for a family day out.

Around 12 minutes’ drive away, the pretty coastal town of Novigrad is well worth a visit. With its marina and fishing harbour, it’s a little quieter than many of the coast’s resorts, and it’s compact enough to get around most of it on foot. Some excellent restaurants and a regular gourmet food festival boost its reputation as a foodie centre.

The region as a whole has a great culinary reputation, so it’s worth trying the local cuisine. Look out for fish and seafood dishes, truffles and asparagus on the menus. The area’s wine is top-notch too, with wine-making an important part of Istria’s culture.

Around 35 minutes’ drive south of Brtonigla lies the town of Poreč, which attracts many visitors to its Roman Old Town, where you will find the Episcopal complex of Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The main road running north of Brtonigla will soon take you over the border with Slovenia, where the beautiful resorts of Portorož and Piran are certainly worth a visit, both less than 40 minutes away.

Region

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.

There’s another water-park, Aquacolors, down the coast south of Poreč – a town itself well worth a visit. About 4km from Aquacolors, there’s also Dinopark Funtana – a park that any dinosaur lover won’t want to miss.
