Overview

Recommended Pool Ideal for Kids

Villa Stepancic, a gorgeously restored villa secluded in three acres of lush Istrian forest is the perfect countryside retreat. The house itself is one of the oldest buildings in the original hamlet of Stepancici and was lovingly restored by its owners in 2016 to create a contemporary and comfortable holiday home.

The villa can easily sleep up to eight guests across four comfortable bedrooms, three luxurious bathrooms and a large well-manicured garden and private swimming pool. The open-plan living area is bright, airy and spacious with full length windows and patio doors allowing plenty of sunlight to flood the room. There is a fully equipped kitchen, dining and lounge area – perfect for relaxing with friends and family.

You will find two bedrooms on the ground floor, a double room with en-suite bathroom, a twin bedroom and the first family bathroom. Head upstairs for the remaining two bedrooms, a double and a twin as well as the second family bathroom. All bedrooms have been designed to an extremely high standard with plenty of wardrobe space in each.

Head through the patio doors onto the lovely garden which is extremely private due to its secluded location in the forest. Children will love running around and exploring the garden as well as the playing on the swings. The private swimming pool is the perfect place to cool off on those hot summer days. There are plenty of seating areas to relax on, both in and out of the shade, the owners of the villa produce their very own wine and the terrace makes the perfect place to sample a glass! Make the most of the barbecue and dine al fresco at any time of the day. With no close neighbours, guests lucky enough to enjoy a stay at Villa Stepancic will enjoy total tranquility and privacy.

Drive just 11km to the coastal resort of Rabac where you can enjoy the beautiful beach coves, dine at one of the lovely restaurants, enjoy a drink in one of the bars or browse the shops. Villa Stepancic provides the perfect base for those wishing to explore the area as well as have a comfortable holiday villa in Croatia.

Villa Stepanic is located in 3 acres of lush forest with its own fruit trees, natural beauty and quiet of the surrounding countryside. Drive 11 km to the coastal resort of Rabac where you will find crystal clear waters, small beach coves, restaurants, bars and shops. The villa is also only 7km from Labin, a Venetian medieval old-town with plenty of culture and history to explore and yummy restaurants to enjoy. The closest airport is Pula which is just a forty minute car journey from the villa. 

The enchanting waterside escape of Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic sea. Deriving its name from a pre-Roman tribe, Istria is steeped in history. Its rich heritage is shaped especially by long periods of Roman, Venetian and Austrian rule. There are many fascinating historical sites that travellers can visit. Perhaps the most impressive of which is the Roman Amphitheatre which has been preserved incredibly well, standing in Pula and this amphitheatre is the sixth largest Roman arena in the world (and still used for concerts, cinema and other events almost every day during the summer)! But you can find historical sites almost in any village and town across the peninsula.

Outside of its historical charms, Istria has plenty of other features on offer. Surrounded by the Adriatic sea, there are many pristine, picturesque beaches and seafront café’s where one can soak up the sun or watch the boats as they travel towards the nearby ports of Italy and Slovenia.

Turning away from the coast, the bucolic interior of rolling hills and fertile plains attracts food- and culture-focused visitors to Istria’s hilltop villages, rural hotels and farmhouse restaurants. The  peninsula is a cornucopia of culinary riches, with the seafood of the coast melding with the hearty meat-based fare of Central Europe. A visit  to some of the local vineries and olive mills is a must, with world-class wines and olive oils being proudly displayed and sampled. If you are enticed by the lure of wild and rare nature, then take a boat trip to the nearby Brijuni archipelago which is not only surrounded by the most intensely stunning beaches but also covered in greenery boasting rare wild plants (protected as a national park)

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.

    Posted by Stefanie on 19/08/2019

    Beautiful villa with all the comfort you could wish, we spent 2 weeks there with 2 families! We lacked nothing! There was a lot for the kids. The villa is very quiet surrounded by beautiful nature and yet not far away from wonderful and crystal clear beaches.

  • Looking forward to the next visit!
