Pool Modern All Bedrooms En-Suite

A modern masterpiece boasting four en-suite bedrooms and an infinity pool, Villa Sanja is a striking home in the hills of the Kvarner coastal region, just minutes from the many idyllic beaches along the coast!

This beautiful home puts a modern twist on the classic traditional style of the region, with stone interior walls and elegant wood flooring throughout. The living spaces are fabulously designed in a semi-open plan style, with a living area that wraps its way round to the dining area alongside the kitchen, making for excellent conversation flow throughout the space. This incredible kitchen is fully equipped with all the latest mod cons and a delightful contemporary style, with a large island which doubles as a breakfast bar, while the accompanying formal dining area can seat the whole group. This immense living area is the perfect place to put your feet up and relax, with a big L-shaped sofa in front of a modern TV, all flooded with a warm, natural light from the wall-to-wall French doors beside it which give views right out to the sea!

When it’s time to rest, head to one of the four sublime bedrooms, all of which ooze luxury and comfort, with a king-size bed stretching across three of them, and a set of two single beds in the final bedroom. Two of the double rooms share a fantastic terrace with two sets of casual sofas and chairs in the sun, both gazing out over the sea and Krk island in the distance! These two rooms also feature a desk and a large wardrobe. Meanwhile, the twin room has its own private terrace access, with a set of two enchanting seats. All four rooms benefit from magnificent en-suite bathrooms, including a series of truly sumptuous walk-in showers!

And finally, step out into this exquisite garden, where your spectacular infinity pool twinkles under the sun! Loungers around the pool are ideal for sunbathing, all while enjoying these sea views. There’s an outdoor shower beside the pool where you can rinse off in between dips. Leading straight out from the kitchen, there is a superb alfresco dining area, with two long benches around an immense wooden table and sea-views for miles!

With various cafes, restaurants and markets under 5km away and several beaches within 10km, you won’t have to venture far to find everything you could need during your stay!

What’s more, the thriving city of Rijeka is only 20 minutes away, and promises a rich array of events, cultural sites and more choice for dining, drinking and socialising. The region is also rich in cycling and hiking routes which wind their way through all kinds of forests, waterfalls and historical sites, perfect for those who enjoy a little nature!

Nestled just back from the coast and overlooking the sea, Villa Sanja is ideally located for tons of activities in the stunning north of Croatia. You’re about 5 minutes from the bridge that will take you over to the enchanting island of Krk, nicknamed the ‘golden island’! With a whole range of landscapes, from the barren north to the verdant bays of the south, this is a fascinating place to venture to the many coastal towns and even try some of the local wine, ‘Vrbnička Žlahtina’! It is a perfect destination to enjoy a little snorkelling thanks to its rich coastline, and bike paths criss-cross their way across the whole island, promising a memorable day of adventure for all!

The thriving city of Rijeka is just 20 minutes to the north. Restaurants, cafes, markets, hotels, hostels, a port and a fantastic beach, offers tons of facilities and interesting spots to visit. As well as this, a major train station here can connect you to major cities across the country, including Zagreb, the capital, while you can also head around the northern coastline towards the picturesque coast of Istria.

Just an extra 10 minutes up the dazzling coast is Opatija, where you can stroll along the Lungomare promenade, or even pop into the Croatian Museum of Tourism! Once a seaside resort for the Austro-Hungarian elite, in the days of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Opatija remains a popular destination for those seeking a picturesque and peaceful Croatian coastal town with a little more to it than just a beach!

For a fascinating day trip full of history, stunning architecture and a lively metropolis, plus the option to take an incredibly scenic coastal route there, just over an hour and a half away is Pula, the largest city in the region. In early September the city comes alive with music and cultural events, many hosted in its ancient Roman Amphitheatre!

As a former part of the Venetian Republic, Istria has seen many rulers from the Romans, Byzantines and Austro-Hungarians to the Italians and Yugoslavians, giving it a rich history and a world-famous culinary scene, not to mention its breath-taking natural landscapes! 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.

Just 11 minutes away is Rijeka International Airport, while Pula Airport is also only around 1.5 hours away, and both cities are major hubs for those getting ferries.

Region

Sheltered by majestic mountains, the Kvarner Gulf region of Croatia is a coastal gem calling out to be explored. With its stunning landscapes, charming towns, and a seamless blend of Mediterranean and Central European influences, Kvarner has emerged as a must-visit destination for travellers seeking an authentic Croatian experience.

The region offers a stunning array of landscapes, ranging from rugged mountains to tranquil coastal areas. The Velebit Mountains, which stretch along the eastern part of the region, are not just an incredible backdrop but also an absolute haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Hiking and mountain biking trails criss-cross the mountain range, offering spectacular vistas of the Adriatic Sea and surrounding islands.

The coastline of Kvarner is equally breathtaking, with numerous hidden coves, pebble beaches, and crystal-clear waters. The islands in the Kvarner Gulf, including Krk, Cres, and Lošinj, offer fantastic opportunities for beach-combing, swimming, and water sports. You can also embark on boat trips to explore the secluded beaches and hidden caves that dot the coastline.

Kvarner boasts a rich history that has shaped the region into what it is today, and one of the most notable historical sites in the region is the town of Krk on the island of the same name. Krk's Old Town is a labyrinth of narrow streets and picturesque squares, surrounded by medieval city walls and fortifications. A highlight of Krk is the Frankopan Castle, a well-preserved fortress with a rich history dating back to 1191.

On the mainland, the elegant resort town of Opatija, often referred to as the "Pearl of the Adriatic," is a prime example of Kvarner's cultural appeal. It was a favoured destination for European aristocracy during the 19th century, with its historic grand hotels and lush parks. A stroll along the beautiful seaside promenade that trails along the coastline will give you great views over to the neighbouring islands. It’s a delightful town to explore and soak in the atmosphere of a bygone era.

The Lopar peninsula on the island of Rab is a perfect spot for a family trip - the beautiful Paradise Beach (Rajska Plaža) features fine, golden sands and very shallow, crystal-clear waters that make it an ideal beach for young children. That and the beach entertainment - think fairground rides, boats, and beach volleyball - will keep little ones entertained all day.

The region is well-connected by road, making it easy to explore the coastal towns and venture into the mountains. Rijeka, the largest city in Kvarner, serves as a transport hub, with good rail and bus connections. Additionally, there are multiple airports in and around the region, including Rijeka Airport, which facilitates international travel.

Kvarner is truly a treasure trove of natural beauty, historical significance, and cultural charm. The Mediterranean climate offers a year round destination, popular with beachgoers in the warm, sunny summer months, and providing pleasant weather for hiking and sightseeing in the spring, autumn and mild winters. This coastal region offers a range of activities and experiences for travellers of all interests - whether you're a history buff, a nature lover, a foodie, or simply seeking a peaceful seaside retreat, Kvarner has something special to offer.

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages

Children of all ages will adore Villa Sanja, with its huge infinity pool and expansive terrace, plus a whole load of toys to enjoy in the pool! Splashing, swimming and sunbathing in the pool and on its accompanying terrace ensures fun for kids and adults alike, while the many loungers beside it provide the perfect place for you to sit back and relax whilst also keeping an eye on the youngsters.

With high chairs available, even the youngest of guests will be well accommodated. Indeed, this fabulous array of onsite facilities, plus so much to explore nearby, means you can guarantee to make memories to treasure as well as a little peace and quiet while the kids get stuck in!

This section of the coastline provides many opportunities to rent boats, snorkelling and scuba equipment and to enjoy the pristine beaches and bays. Meanwhile, further inland among the deep green, rolling mountains there are some of the most beautiful cycling and hiking trails in Europe, including across the Krk island just a 6-minute drive away!

Just a little further north in 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.

  • Highly recommend!

    on 20/08/2022

    Great house, great location, very well maintained, very nice and coordinated facilities, view from the house and pool is spectacular. The supermarket is not far away, the island of Krk is easy to reach because the location is very central, also for bays and beaches by the sea. Highly recommend and would gladly come again. Landlord is very nice and accommodating.

  • A truly wonderful place to stay.

    on 06/08/2022

    Villa Sanja is a truly wonderful place to stay. The owner went above and beyond for us of which we were very grateful. The villa was exceptionally clean and everything was in perfect condition. The villa was well laid out and has a large upper terrace with beautiful sunset views! The outside dining area is perfect and the swimming pool and terrace also perfect. Everything is very clean and is in excellent condition. The owner clearly takes great care of this property. We so enjoyed our stay and I will never forget the view from the infinity pool. Thank you for a great week!
