Located at the idyllic spot of Duga Luka, 5km from Labin, Villa Venera enjoys one of the most enchanting positions you’ll find on the Istrian peninsula. A stunning waterside view is just part of the charm of this 5-bedroom property, which also offers excellent wellness facilities including two saunas, hot tub and 12.5m swimming pool.

A peaceful place on Istria’s eastern coast, Duga Luka delights with its scents of Mediterranean herbs and its bright, blue waters. Villa Venera lies 30m away from them, and you can wander down to a wooden pontoon if you wish to take a dip in the sea or sunbathe as the waters lap around you. The villa is well-equipped for fitness, with a treadmill, exercise bike, weights and an elliptical trainer, as well as less active pursuits like darts and billiards.

The outdoor terrace includes sun loungers, seating areas and an outdoor hot tub, and even the sauna enjoys a view over the water. A barbecue and outdoor kitchen make it just as easy to eat outside as in, with room for 12 at the dining table.

A modern living room inside offers a 65-inch Smart TV, PlayStation and Bose music system, plus direct access to the terrace. An impressive kitchen and dining area form another charming space warmed, if needed, by a centrepiece fireplace.

The five beautiful bedrooms are spread over two floors, with three doubles on the ground floor, and a double and twin upstairs. All offer sea views, Smart TV and a private bathroom, and four have direct access to a terrace too.
This immaculate villa is lucky enough to be just a 10-minute drive from the medieval town of Labin, a local centre for cultural events and great Istrian dining.

Labin enjoys an elevated position in the hills above the popular resort of Rabac, where you will find some of the peninsula’s most breathtaking beaches. Head north and you will soon be experiencing the wonders of the Ucka Natural Park, or go west and you can reach cities like Pula and Rovinj in 45-60 minutes.

The medieval town of Labin, on the eastern side of the Istrian peninsula, may not get the attention of some its west coast counterparts, but those who do visit are sure to be charmed by its laid-back ambience.

The town is located high in the hills above the resort of Rabac, and they make a great combination, with history, excellent Istrian cuisine and relaxing beach life all coming together.Labin is the perfect place to spend a little time on a café terrace, or potter around the town museum, an art gallery or atelier.

Old houses, churches and a few steep hills give it real charm, and its elevated position offers some stunning views down to the bay and across sweeping areas of forest, particularly from the fortress viewpoint where an old cannon points oceanwards. In summer, the local artistic community becomes even more visible, when the Art Republika festival brings theatre and concerts to the streets.

Labin has many restaurants to try, including the sea-view Restaurant Kvaerner in the Old Town which specialises in handmade Istrian pasta. The pretty terrace of Markus is the right spot for seafood and steak, while Velo Café is a favourite and family-friendly place for casual dining on the square. While you’re in town, look out for important sights like the Teatrino theatre, Sanfior Gate and the Loggia, an eye-catching, 16th-century meeting point.

Neighbouring Rabac, with its pristine beaches of Girandella, St Andrea and Lanterna, is a fishing village which has become the region’s tourist favourite. It’s easy to see the attraction – with clear blue waters, optimal diving conditions and cool open-air bars, it’s the obvious choice for chilled days and nights at the beach when you’re visiting Labin.

Region

Nestled along Croatia’s enchanting Adriatic coastline, Istria welcomes visitors with open arms and a rich tapestry of experiences waiting to be unraveled. Whether you're seeking adventure in nature, indulgence in culinary delights, a glimpse into history and culture, or simply a warm and inviting atmosphere, the peninsula of Istria has it all.

Istria's diverse and unspoiled landscapes will be the first thing to capture your attention! The region is renowned for its lush green hills, rolling vineyards, and enchanting coastline: the stunning scenery is a playground for nature enthusiasts, hikers, and beachgoers alike.

Offering a remarkable 445 kilometres of pristine coastline, including tranquil coves and sandy beaches, visitors can find plenty of secluded spots to soak up the sun. The clear, azure waters of the Adriatic are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and scuba diving, making it a fantastic choice for those who enjoy an active day of water sports.

Venture inland and you'll discover picturesque villages set amidst rolling hills and verdant forests. Istria is home to over 30 nature reserves - an absolute haven for hikers and cyclists, with an abundance of well-marked trails to explore. The Učka Nature Park, in particular, stands out as a hiking and nature lover's paradise, offering waterfalls, historic villages, and breathtaking panoramic views of Istria's outstanding scenery.

Istria's rich history is woven into the fabric of its towns and cities. An ever popular choice for tourists is the impressive port city of Pula, full of quaint town squares and local restaurants, and home to one of the most well-preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. This ancient arena, known as the Pula Arena, is a testament to Istria's Roman heritage and hosts numerous events, including concerts and film festivals.

The medieval towns of Rovinj and Motovun enchant visitors with their cobbled streets and historic charm. The Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a stunning example of early Christian art and architecture.

Istria's culinary scene is a treat for the taste buds: the region is famous for its truffles, particularly the elusive white truffle, and you can savour dishes infused with this prized delicacy in charming local restaurants across the region. Wine and olive oil lovers will find joy in Istria's vineyards and olive groves, offering tastings and insights into traditional production methods. Fresh seafood, often served with a Mediterranean twist, is a staple that you can enjoy at quaint waterfront eateries along the coastline.

One of the most enduring memories visitors take away from Istria is the warmth of its people. The locals are known for their friendly, welcoming nature and their willingness to share their traditions and stories with tourists. You'll find yourself immersed in the local way of life, whether you're exploring ancient towns or enjoying a meal in a family-run tavern.

Istria is easily accessible, with Pula Airport serving as a major gateway. Once you arrive, navigating the region is a breeze with well-maintained roads connecting major towns and villages. Language barriers are minimal, thanks to the widespread use of English, Italian, and German, alongside the local Croatian language.

Istria’s unique blend of pristine landscapes, rich traditions, and warm-hearted locals creates an experience that will linger in your memories long after you've returned home.

Reviews

  • A small "paradise" describes it best

    on 20/09/2023

    We, 5 married couples around 60, spent 10 indescribably beautiful days in Villa Venera from September 2nd to September 12th, 2023. Starting with the welcome from Toni, the care during the stay by the good fairy Dorina, and the farewell by the owner Silvano, that had style!!! There is nothing comparable to the villa, the location, the furnishings and the overall picture that we have lived in before. A small "paradise" describes it best.

  • Immaculate and very well presented

    on 30/08/2023

    We stayed with two adults and four teenage boys for a week and there was plenty of space and things for them all to do. The villa is immaculate and very well presented. Certainly 5* and it looks just like the pictures. The views across the water are stunning with very little development in the area. Our hosts Silvano and Tony were very attentive and will make sure that your stay is very enjoyable. It feels like you are staying in a private 5* hotel rather than just a villa. The local town of Labin is only a short drive away has a good range of restaurants and Napoli Pizzeria also delivers, if you need it to. We flew in and out of Pula airport which is a scenic 40 minute drive and the small airport is very easy to use.

  • Perfect!

    on 27/07/2023

    The most modern and best-equipped villa in which we spent our family vacation. Everything was well maintained and without any faults. Location, landlord and amenities.

  • Beautiful villa in a stunning location

    on 28/06/2023

    Beautiful villa in a stunning location. Absolutely everything you would want for a perfect stay including watching dolphins in the bay in front of the Villa one morning.

  • Everything you need

    on 26/06/2023

    Beautiful place, well kept Villa, very clean, beautiful views in a quiet place. There is everything you need :) We are very pleased. We recommend :)

  • Amazing Villa

    on 30/05/2023

    We had a great time in this amazing Villa, Silvano and his family are great hosts. Nothing was missing, we will definitely come back!

  • The most beautiful villa!

    on 05/05/2023

    The most beautiful villa that exists in Istria. The view from the house is breathtaking. The garden and whole complex are very clean and well maintained. We felt very comfortable and will certainly come again.

  • Highly recommended

    on 04/04/2023

    The accommodation was as described and very neatly maintained. The facilities overall, especially the kitchen, were excellent. Check-in went smoothly and the owners, especially Toni, were always easily accessible and open to questions or requests throughout the stay. There was a welcome gift and even a small birthday present, which we were very happy about. Overall, a truly unique accommodation with excellent views and tranquillity. The deposit (2,000€) had to be paid in cash, which could be optimised in the future (credit card). When booking, it must be clear that without a car the nearest supermarket is difficult to reach. However, this is already described when booking. All in all, the villa is worth its price and highly recommended. Thank you very much Toni!

  • Everything your heart desires

    on 30/08/2022

    The stairs take you directly to the beautiful bay. The house is very well maintained, modern and equipped to a high standard. There is simply everything your heart desires. The owners took great care of us and helped us with excursions etc. We would spend our vacation there again at any time!

  • Amazing villa!

    on 26/08/2022

    Amazing villa! All rooms beautifully designed with comfort in mind. Very modern bathrooms with efficient plumbing. Fully equipped kitchen and barbecue area. Wonderful spa area which we made full use of. Smiling staff and warm welcome. The location is very secluded and private with lovely views over the bay where apparently you can see dolphins. We would love to return.

  • This villa is a dream

    on 28/07/2022

    This villa is a dream. Very clean, nice owner and well thought out concept. A relaxing holiday is guaranteed.

  • Absolutely perfect

    on 27/07/2022

    Absolutely perfect. For us it has been the pinnacle of accommodations. Beautiful, state-of-the-art villa. The facilities, the cleanliness and the service are absolutely spot on. The hosts are really helpful and kind. We recommend it to everyone without a doubt.

  • Unique experience

    on 31/05/2022

    The Villa is absolutely beautiful and the grounds, accommodations, access to the ocean are all incredible. Our guests were equally grateful for this unique experience. Tony and his family are wonderful hosts, always available if needed, gracious and charming. We truly enjoyed our time in Istria and the beautiful country of Croatia. We do intend on returning and without hesitation, arranging a stay at spectacular Villa Venera.

  • The most breath-taking view

    on 27/04/2022

    The most breath-taking view I have ever seen, that's what this Villa offers you. I had an amazing time with my family in this beautiful house and I enjoyed every minute of it. I would recommend the Villa to everyone!
