Boasting a striking exterior and even more majestic interiors, Villa Vanikla is a luxury home for up to eight extremely lucky guests, within walking distance of the beach!

As you step inside this sublime home you will appreciate the scale of magnificence on which this property has been designed – where an intricate and ornate staircase winds its way from the sparkling marble floor up to the vast balcony of the first-floor. This wonderous level of attention to detail is evident throughout the villa. Contemporary charm oozes out of every inch of your breath-taking lounge, where two classic sofas sit below a twinkling chandelier and before the huge TV. Your immense kitchen welcomes you to dazzle your guests with all manner of culinary delights, with only top-quality appliances all set within a sleek and sophisticated design. Meanwhile your dining table is striking, inviting and fabulously formal – ensuring unforgettable meal-times with the whole group!

Each of the four bedrooms embodies this charming traditional style, with a classic colour theme in each. A range of enormous beds, including a four-poster, promise you a perfect night of rest and relaxation, each flooded with natural light from the many glass-panelled doors which line each room, inviting you to step out into the dazzling sunshine beyond! Each is accompanied by an equally elegant ensuite bathroom, which offer everything from indulgent free-standing bathtubs to walk-in showers, ornate mirrors and in one case even direct access to the pool terrace!

And finally, step outside into this simply sublime garden. It begins with a large veranda that lines the whole back of the house. From here you can gaze out over your immense private pool. Luxury beds surround it, offering the perfect spot not only for sunbathing but indeed for snoozing too in the long, hazy afternoons. Under the pavilion alongside this is a fantastic square dining table, and there’s an ultra-modern BBQ set to prepare delicious meals on! Get cosy in the sofa pod right in the centre of your huge lawn and enjoy the striking sight of this grand villa!

The sea is within view of the villa, and just a short walk away, and the surroundings are fabulously rural. In fact, one third of the Istrian territory is forested and the rest is carpeted with vineyards, olive trees, pastures and orchards, with ancient walled cities perched atop hills in the mountainous landscape, so you need merely stroll out of your front door to find the richness of Istria.

Just a 20-minute walk away from the dazzling coast, Villa Vanikla 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.
