Overview

Pool Ideal for Kids Walk to Village

A masterpiece of modern architecture, Villa Kostel features two sleek and contemporary homes connected by an internal bridge, just 2.8km from the nearest beach!

On the ground floor of each villa, there is a beautiful open plan living area; each features a large kitchen to one end, with all the latest mod cons and delightful facilities. Beside this, there is a large dining table, and to the other side of this, there is a casual seating area by the fireplace.

Tasteful artwork adorns the walls, and contemporary fusion of bold colours and softer, more gentle tones creates a thoroughly modern feel. Each floor has a large bathroom with a shower and enjoys direct access to the magnificent garden.

All four bedrooms are on the first floor, and all have to air-condition. There are three double rooms and one twin room, all designed in the same minimalist, modern style with monochrome colour palettes and simple furniture, creating a relaxed, sophisticated ambience.

On this floor, there are two separate lounge areas, complete with a TV and comfortable sofa, where you can find some peace and solitude among the endless days of socialising and fun. Two delightful bathrooms with showers are also on this floor.

The wonderful garden provides a beautiful space where you can recline in the sunshine and soak up the pleasurable sensations of the natural world around you. A huge private pool ensures you can cool off with a dip in the refreshing water and enjoy a little fun and games in the sun, while an outdoor dining area is ideal for alfresco meals in style!

You can walk to the coast in around half an hour, and Croatia’s first ever water park, the magnificent Istralandia, with tons of water-slides and pools of all kinds, is just an 8-minute drive away!

This puts you just a stone’s throw from one of the greatest children’s entertainment centres in the country and will ensure you never have a moment of boredom!

And what’s more – the Slovenian border is only around fifteen minutes away, and the Italian border about 20 minutes further – so why not check out a couple of other countries while you’re here?  

For outdoor adventures a little closer to home, 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.

The nearby town of Novigrad has a beautiful Marina, while just half an hour away is Poreč, a city of culture, tourism, sport and entertainment with one of the most important Western Byzantine churches outside Italy. It is also the party hub of the peninsula!

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 find 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.

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.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

Villa Kostel 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.
