What Oliver loves…
- The outdoor spaces are sublime, offering immaculately executed lawns, dining terraces, elegant pool side parasols and loungers and of course the dazzling pool!

- Sleek and contemporary interiors with minimal adornments and open plan family living spaces creating a safe and welcoming environment
Villa Tulip is a bright, light-filled and airy home offering luminescent interiors and a dazzling blend of marina blue and whites set on the coastline of the sparkling Istria peninsula of Croatia.
This charismatic and welcoming home offers vibrant and tranquil outdoor spaces, framed with luscious greenery and fragrant trees and plants. There are endless lawns, a covered veranda for al fresco dining as well as an elegant pool-side adorned with loungers and parasols.
Sitting down to a sumptuous meal of grilled local fish prepared on the wood-fired barbecue at the end of a long day of site-seeing will be about as good as it gets. This immaculate home is superbly executed for low-key family living.
Whether it be cooling off in the pool, sitting on the hanging seat with a gripping holiday read or enjoying a refreshing post-swim breakfast, there is an ease and informality to this home that will see guests drop the tempo and relax into the local pace of life.
Large French windows offer a seamless blend between indoor and outdoor living. The interiors are fresh, minimal and chic, offering bright and light open plan living, with unfussy finishes and minimal ornamentation - simple, yet sleek and quality finishes in neutral and earthy tones give this villa is calm and sedate ambience.
At every turn, this home is infused with natural daylight and generous proportions. Unadorned and airy, guests have ample space to spread out and a sense of communal, yet spacious, living. Characterful touches such as quirky light fittings, pops of bright colour across the scatter cushions and upholstered armchairs, as well as interesting artwork, give this home depth and vibrancy.
Up to twelve guests can be accommodated across five bedrooms and five bathrooms. Each bedroom has the tranquillity, grace and style of a boutique hotel, with crisp, quality bed linen and thick, fluffy towels and resplendent views - guests are sure to rest easy.
Villa Tulip is the quintessential unfussy, bright and breezy holiday home offering flawless accommodation, yet with all the “homey” touches as well as the conveniences needed for busy, family life!

Nestled in the Istria peninsula of Croatia, Villa Tulip is only fifteen miles from the lovely cobbled streets and coast side market town of Rovinj.
The nearest airport is Pula Airport, at some twenty-one miles from the villa.
Žminj, is a small and traditional town, offering abundant local flavour, in the heart of Istria. Istria, formerly part of Italy, retains many Italian influences today and is known for its simple way of life, preserved nature and pretty, coastal towns and islands.
In the old stone town centre of Žminj, which is set on a hill, there is a beautiful church, while the newer part of the town extends into the valley. This part of Croatia offers a traditional and rustic way of life; three generations of the same family will be seen sitting outside their homes in the evening watching the world go by, the local restaurants are family run and many families produce their own vegetables, fruit and wine - ingredients that make up the wonderful Istrian cuisine.
Along the roads, beside the paths, in fields or meadows, visitors will come across "kažun" - small stone houses that the inhabitants used to use as storage houses for food, tools, or as a shelter from the rain - adding to the sense of local charm within the area.
Žminj is the traditional host of one of the most popular folk festivities in Istria: the Bartulja (at the end of August), dedicated to St. Bartholomew, patron of Žminj- these colourful events give a vibrant insight to the local way of life. Other traditional events are the Chakavian Assembly, a contest of young poets and reciters of poetry in the Chakavian dialect and the Harmonica Wedding, a competition in accordion-playing.

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.
Istria is simply brimming with activities for the whole family - there is so much to do, and everyone’s needs are sure to be met! The local restaurants and cuisine are very family friendly, and great emphasis is put on slowing down, enjoying good food and family time!
This is one of the prettiest and least spoilt parts of Croatia - full of stunning coastland and picturesque towns with beautiful harbours and local markets.
Among our pick for family friendly activities would be, Glavani Park with its tree top obstacle courses. Catering for various ages and abilities, children will enjoy this region from a great height!
Being a coastal region, Istria also does aquariums quite well! Umag, Rovinj, Poreg and Pula all have aquariums, showcasing fish from the Adriatic Sea. Aquarium Pula is a popular Istria aquarium, which is located inside an old Austro-Hungarian fortress.
The Istria coastline is fabulous, full of rocky bays and shady pine trees with wonderful opportunities for water sports and diving. Hiring bikes is a great way to explore the coastline and coastal paths, whilst there are several water parks in the region such as Aqua Park Istrialand for a great day out on slides and chutes!
Back at the villa, there are the sumptuous gardens to play in; safely enclosed lawns, shaded and covered outdoor dining area, the wonderful pool and children’s play area complete with trampoline and slides as well as ample space for games. The airy and spacious interiors and serene air conditioned bedrooms are ideal for a family holiday.
