A classically styled delight that stands out boldly amid the Croatian countryside, Villa Retta invites guests to reconnect with the tranquillity and beauty of the natural world, just a short walk from the coastline.

Inside, the villa is every bit as spacious and sophisticated as it appears from the exterior. Your lounge is vast. Stretching across the ground floor, it offers two large sofas and a cosy armchair around a central social space, with the fabulous addition of a modern TV should you simply want to switch off and unwind. Your kitchen is a masterpiece of modern design. Fully-fitted and fully-equipped, it provides an elegant space in which you can prepare delicious feasts or even simple snacks, along with all the latest mod cons to make your stay totally hassle-free. With a glamorous dining table right alongside the kitchen, you can all dine together in a superb environment.
There are four bedrooms in total, each as welcoming, warm and chic as the next. All four present spectacular double beds, with a feature wall here and a striking bed-frame there, making for a deluxe living space. In the master suite, the light floods through the vast sets of a quaint garden doors which look right out over your huge pool terrace! Each pristine ensuite, and there is one for each room, dazzles with the same sleek sophistication as the rest of the villa, with majestic walk-in showers and glamorous vanity sinks.

The immense garden which awaits you through so many sets of elegant glass doorways offers countless picturesque spots to soak up the sunshine! Your huge private pool spans the length of the terrace, with a long row of loungers down one side for sunbathing, socialising and perhaps even snoozing all in the comfort of this excellent garden. An outdoor shower right beside the pool ensures you needn’t step inside in between dips, so you can flit back and forth between the sun-kissed loungers and the refreshing depths of the pool all day long! To the far side of the pool, right alongside your lovely lawn, is a stylish alfresco dining space for eight.

Brimming with vineyards, olive groves and orchards, the surrounding countryside of Istria is a sight to behold – and with bikes readily available for you, you can enjoy it at the perfect pace!

Just a 20-minute walk away from the dazzling coast, Villa Retta is beautifully nestled between the forested interior landscape and the dazzling Adriatic Sea.

Along the coast you can stroll along picturesque promenades, both sandy and pebble beaches and lap up the crystal clear waters! From breath-taking scenery and rich history to a world-famous culinary scene – you will find it all in Istria! A myriad of enchanting towns and villages, rich in history and culture, are nestled among the undulating countryside.

Nearby Poreč is a town of culture, tourism, sport and entertainment and has one of the most important Western Byzantine churches outside Italy yet is also the party hub of the peninsula, showing just how diverse this region is!

Just 45 minutes away, you can’t miss the delightful Venetian coastal town of Rovinj half-way up the western coastline. Wander the old town, with its Venetian architecture and marble streets and admire the views across the marina before settling for a meal in one of its many beautiful sea-side restaurants. And be sure to stop off in Lim Bay while you’re there – a dramatic Fjord stretching for miles inland!

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 pristine paths for cycling (including the picturesque Parenzana route over an old railway line from Viznada to the Slovenian border) and rugged off-road hiking trails.

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. 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’!

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 daily ferry between Poreč and Venice.

Poreč is a charming town situated on the western coast of the Istrian Peninsula in Croatia, known for its rich history, stunning beaches, and vibrant Mediterranean atmosphere. Poreč’s blend of historical sites, vibrant culture, and natural beauty make it it an enticing location for tourists of all ages.

The main street of Poreč, the Decumanus, is lined with quaint shops, cozy cafes, and traditional Istrian restaurants, offering a delightful blend of the town’s rich past alongside modern-day living. The town's historic centre is a labyrinth of cobbled streets and narrow alleys that reveal hidden treasures at every turn, inviting visitors to explore the heart of Poreč on foot.

A short stroll from the Decumanus is one of the most iconic landmarks in Poreč, the Euphrasian Basilica. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this stunning complex dating back to the 6th century, showcases remarkable Byzantine architecture and breathtaking mosaics that recount religious stories. Visitors can admire the intricate details of the mosaics and soak in the ambiance of a structure that has withstood the test of time.

Beyond the historical streets, Poreč is famous for its breathtaking beaches. The pristine Adriatic coastline beckons sun-seekers and water sports enthusiasts. Zelena Laguna, Plava Laguna, and Brulo Beach are just a few of the coastal areas worth exploring. You can bask in the Mediterranean sun, take a dip in the clear blue waters or, if you’re feeling adventurous, then snorkelling, jet skiing, or paddle-boarding are all exciting options offered along this glorious stretch of coastline.

For those who want to go a little deeper and explore the underwater world, Poreč offers fantastic diving opportunities! The waters surrounding the town are teeming with marine life and colourful coral reefs. Dive centres are readily available for both beginners and experienced divers, ensuring that everyone can explore the magic beneath the surface of the Adriatic Sea.

Hop on a boat trip and venture to the nearby Brijuni Islands, where nature enthusiasts and history buffs alike will have plenty of exciting activities on offer. This collection of islands is one of Croatia’s eight national parks, and is famous for its diverse nature and rich history. With attractions such as a safari park with exotic animals, and the island’s famous dinosaur footprints, it’s a wonderful place to explore as a family.

For travellers interested in exploring beyond the town, Poreč is ideally located for day trips to other Istrian destinations. Just a short drive away, you'll find Rovinj, a picturesque coastal town with a vibrant artistic community that is brimming with creativity. Motovun, a hilltop village town known for its absolutely stunning views, is also an easy day trip. These nearby destinations add to the allure of Poreč as a base for exploring the diverse beauty of the Istrian Peninsula.

Poreč and the surrounding area offers a wide array of dining options for you to indulge in the local dishes. From seafood to truffle-infused pasta and regional wines, the plethora of independent restaurants provide an authentic culinary journey through the Istrian cuisine, renowned for its delicious flavours and fresh ingredients.

From the ancient Euphrasian Basilica to the bustling Poreč Market, this town has something for every traveler. So, whether you're interested in history, culture, nature, or simply relaxing on the beach, Poreč has it all. Its year-round appeal ensures that visitors can enjoy its beauty and charm in any season.
