Villa Klosta is a beautiful traditional Istrian stone house built in 1757 and completely renovated in 2012. The house is situated in picturesque village, just a few minutes walk from the gorgeous Limi Valley that separates the ancient Roman regions of Pula and Porec.

Comprised of two separate buildings, Villa Klosta offers plenty of privacy and comfort in peaceful surroundings. The swimming pool is a stylish centerpiece to the grounds, and there are several outdoor seating areas to sunbathe or dine al-fresco; preparing food on the outdoor stone barbecue.

 

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • The immediate location of the house could be quite isolated for those who want to experience some culture and nightlife.
  • There are no bedrooms on the ground floor so not suitable for those who have difficulty with stairs.

Located on the western coast of Istria, in the in a tiny rural village, villa Klosta offers a tranquil holiday experience in rural atmosphere. The nearest grocery store, bakery, ambulance, doctor, bank, fish market and beach can be found in Vrsar, at 8,5 km distance from the villa.

The house is placed at only 5 km distance from the famous Lim valley.The Lim valley (Limska draga or Limska dolina) is the 35 km long valley of the river Pazinčica, which transforms into the Lim Channel (Limski kanal), a 10 kilometers long estuary. Estuaries and coastal waters are among the most productive ecosystems on Earth, providing ecological, economic, cultural, and aesthetic benefits. The estuary is sometimes called a fjord.

The area around the channel has been inhabited since the Neolithic era. These early settlers burrowed into caves along the valley which have been excavated to reveal remnants of their former occupants. Ancient Illyrians then moved in and settled around the hill-fort of Gradina. Under the Romans, the channel formed the border between the administrative units of Porec and Pula. The name lim is derived from the Latin limes for border.

According to legend, St Romuald, founder of a nearby monastery inhabited one of the ancient caves for several years in the 11th century. The 105m long St Romuald's cave is open for visits in the summer. Fishing in the Lim Channel has always been excellent. Now the natural species have been augmented by farmed mussels and oysters which are on offer in two excellent restaurants on the channel.

Region

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.

Reviews

  • A great villa, but beware

    Posted by James L on 18/07/2017

    The 6 of us were excited to visit Croatia and spend some time relaxing by the pool, eating locally and of course Barbecuing.

    Therefore Villa Klosta in Klostar looked perfect.

    Upon arrival, (after a very easy drive from Pula airport) we met Gabbi the villa Rep who showed us around.

    The villa itself is a fantastic looking old farmhouse and newer, but almost indistinguishable, larger villa, connected by a terrace area. The whole area is walled and very private.

    It is safe to say that all 6 of us were impressed. The facilities were clean and as expected. That is to say, nice, but not luxurious.

    The owner appeared, to repeat the introduction to the villa and was very welcoming.

    The good and the bad.

    The villa does not have enough sunloungers, 4 for a max occupancy of 10.

    There are no pool/beach towels provided.

    The pool and BBQ area are great, big enough for a gentle swim or pool games. The BBQ is built-in and large enough to accommodate a significant amount of cooking, of which we took full advantage.

    The whole villa has aircon, which we were shown upon arrival, and was set to 17c. This was fine for the most part as it was on in most bedrooms and the smaller house most of the time. However, the larger of the 2 villas aircon started to pour water after 2 hours of arrival and was promptly switched off for the remainder of the week. Apparently the max difference between outside and in should be 8c. This fact was not something mentioned by the Rep or owner. If the difference is greater than 8c then it can cause leaks, this is quite a significant point. Particularly as upon arrival the fact it was on 17c was highlighted as a positive!

    Deck chairs, the villa had 4. However 2 were broken on arrival, the first had a cut/severed cord that holds the weight and unusable, the 2nd had obviously been broken at some point but this fact hidden, likely by previous residents. It was missing a piece of wood from the right hand side and the second it was sat in collapsed. Both were promptly stored in the utility area and not considered again until we left.

    Upon check out an inspection was completed by the owner and villa Rep.

    We had broken 2 glasses, not an issue and unfortunately the pool drain plastic had snapped during a game of inflatable volleyball.

    We promptly paid in cash for the pool drain, our fault so no issue. None of us mentioned the broken chairs, after all they were broken upon arrival.

    This is were the issue began, at the airport, we received a call that we were to be charged for the chairs. Which was totally unacceptable. Gabbi, the Rep was very polite and apologetic and callled us, the owner and her manager. We were told it was us, and there had never been any issues before. After speaking to her manager the made the decision to waive the charge. Correctly and gratefully received.

    On the final day, the villa managed to go from a would definitely recommend and rebook to a 'no thanks, we'll find somewhere else next time' a real shame.

    Our recommendations are;

    1. If you have a rep let them do their job. They are independent and paid to do a job.
    2. If the aircon has a limit, highlight this, in detail, the leaks were soaked up and mopped with minutes, but may have stained the tile floor. This is entirely the risk the owner takes by showing people around herself (which was initially great, but soured). If she chooses to do this, she takes responsibility for informing the residents of the nuances or instructions.
    3. Beach / pool towels for all residents
    4. Mosquito plugs in each room
    5. More sun loungers
    6. Be careful on inspections, if something is broken it can easily be covered up and then impacts the next residents as in this case, turning a repeat customer into a never again customer!

    A wonderful setting and villa in general, spoilt by accusations of damage and statements that we were the first! The pool drain price was instantly known from the top of the owners head, suggesting this has happened before, if not many times. It was also paid instantly, meaning that we would have paid for the chairs, if we had broken them, which we did not.

    Side note. Croatia is beautiful and both Porec and Vrsar are definitely worth visiting. Particularly Vrsar for the fishing festivals. Full of life and laughter.
