Sleek, stylish and modern, Villa Martinak is an enchanting home-from-home within walking distance of the sublime beaches of the Rabač coast!
Built in just 2014, this is a modern masterpiece, with a vast, open plan living and dining area on the first floor. The interiors are spacious and chic with a monochrome design.
The kitchen sits at one side of the room, with tons of space and all the latest mod cons, in an almost futuristic design. Beside the kitchen is the dining area, and then the large L-shaped sofa in front of the SAT TV, besides which there is a set of large patio doors, flooding the room with warm, natural light, from which a terrace extends. There is a guest WC on this floor.
There are four fantastic bedrooms, three doubles and one twin. The first three are located on the ground floor, with the fourth on the second floor. Two of the rooms enjoy ensuite bathrooms while the other two share a delightful family bathroom on the first floor.
All three are elegant and minimalist, and all have showers while one also has a bathtub. There is a vast terrace on each floor, from which you can enjoy dinner, drinks or merely a good chat while admiring the charming views of Rabač and the nearby islands!
In the grounds, you can enjoy a private pool, lined by a row of comfortable sun-loungers, ideal for soaking up the fabulous sunshine of the Croatian coast! There are an outdoor dining area and a barbeque ideal for enjoying a fabulous alfresco meal in the beautiful, mild climate!
Nearby there are tennis courts if you fancy a little physical activity, or else take a walk along the promenade in Rabač, lined with cafés, bars and restaurants!
Nestled right on the sublime coastline, and just twenty minutes away from Učka Nature Park, a sprawling protected area with hiking routes leading to canyons, waterfalls and historic sites, you’ll find 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.

Ideally located to access all kinds of activities, Villa Martinak is nestled in the vibrant resort in 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!
Just 10 minutes away is Labin, once the most extensive mining centre of Croatia and now an art haven filled with galleries! 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 main 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 Martinak 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.
