Villa Dinja is the quintessential Istrian bolthole offering an up-market blend of architectural and designer finesse within a welcoming, home-from-home environment brimming with local flavour.

Convenience is the cornerstone of this charming home, which is just a short stroll from the pretty village centre, whilst offering cooling shade and dappled serenity within its own grounds, comprising pool-side terrace and stone-walled private enclave.

The glistening pool creates a dazzling vision set within a sleek, stone patio - framed by a rather elegant dining pavilion finished with billowing curtains and sedate style.

Both quality and style are apparent at every turn, whilst the handsome white-washed facade offers a sleek monochrome vision offset by two wrought iron-balconies - the latter providing the ultimate spot for an intimate tête-à-tète, whether it be a fresh morning coffee as the town comes to life or an evening glass of wine, fragrant with blossoming plants.

Outdoor living is executed at its very finest at Villa Dinja: guests will drop the tempo and ease into the local pace of life. The poolside is dotted with sleek loungers, where guests can sit back with a good book and a cooling beer, whilst dining will be fresh, simple yet endlessly delectable thanks to the local produce, fresh sea-food on offer and barbecue facilities.

What better way to enjoy this home’s charming tranquillity by lazing in the hammock, soaking up the Adriatic breezes and scent of local flavours! Fusing both simplicity and style - al fresco dining is no excuse to lower culinary standards - with a built-in-in brick oven and solid timer dining furniture, guests will dine in style! 

Twelve guests can be accommodated across six bedrooms at Villa Dinja, making this home ideal for a family or group. There is also a cot-bed for infants.

The interiors at this striking home are simply impeccable; a true blend of stylist’s panache and designer verve, providing understated luxury along with playful touches. This airy home is generously proportioned, with abundant natural day-light at every turn.

In keeping with the holiday spirit, each of the three bedrooms are accented with citrus-toned pops of zesty colour: bright orange, lime and yellow tones in contrast to the chic and neutral base palette of earthy and natural tones - guests will have great fun selecting their abode.

With all the luxury of a boutique hotel, yet all the quirks of a private home, guests will delight in this hidden jewel of a home that is a far-cry from soulless cookie-cutter rentals!

The attention to detail at Villa Dinja is apparent at every turn, whilst quality of fittings and finishes are uncompromising. Guests will be able to stroll from the seclusion of the bedrooms to the charming balconies which offer views across rolling countryside.

The living space at Villa Dinja offers the same earthy backdrop punctuated by accents of vivacious red; modern, yet timeless, this space offers contemporary ease for the ultimate open plan, lateral group living space, from enormous charcoal grey corner sofa to stylish family dining space. The kitchen is a flamboyant pillar-box red, offering glossy units and state-of-the art appliances.

With all the practical needs of a family looked after, including parking, utility space, internet and all the modern kitchen conveniences, this home-from-home is a place where guests can simply arrive and unwind, secure in the knowledge that every detail is covered.

Villa Dinja is a veritable haven of natural holiday ease and charm, offering immaculate quality and flawless finishes within a bright, playful and light-filled contemporary space and endless scope for outdoor living.

Pula, located on the southern tip of Croatia's Istrian Peninsula, is a city with a rich history, stunning natural beauty, and a vibrant cultural scene. Exploring the city's old town, you'll find charming narrow streets, historic buildings, and picturesque squares. A stroll through the heart of the city allows visitors to immerse themselves in its unique blend of architectural styles, from Baroque palaces to Venetian facades.

Pula is a city steeped in history, with its roots dating back to Roman times. The most iconic symbol of the city is the Pula Arena, a remarkably well-preserved Roman amphitheater. Built during the 1st century AD, it is one of the six largest surviving Roman arenas in the world and one of Croatia’s most famous sights. Visitors can explore the galleries, stand on the arena floor, and even attend various events, including concerts and festivals held within its ancient walls.

The Istrian Peninsula is known for its stunning coastline, and Pula boasts numerous pristine beaches and coves. One of the most popular spots is Kamenjak, a protected natural park featuring rugged cliffs, crystal-clear waters, and diverse marine life. Nature enthusiasts can hike or cycle through the park's trails and enjoy breathtaking vistas of the Adriatic Sea. The coastal location is also ideal for water-based activities. Scuba diving enthusiasts can explore underwater caves and shipwrecks, while sailing and windsurfing are popular options for those seeking an adrenaline rush.

Just a short drive from Pula, the seaside town of Medulin offers a lovely promenade along the coast. You can take a leisurely walk, rent bicycles, or enjoy an ice cream by the sea. The shallow waters here make it a great spot for kids to play and swim.

For more family-friendly beaches, Verudela, Valkane, and Ambrela are all excellent options, offering playground facilities and water sports for older kids. Verudula beach is the home of Pula Aquarium which features a variety of Adriatic Sea creatures, including fish, seahorses, and various sea plants. The aquarium also has a touch tank, where children can get hands-on with the marine life!

Just a short boat ride from Pula is a collection of islands that make up Brijuni National Park. The park offers a unique combination of untouched nature, diverse flora and fauna, and historical sites. Visitors can explore the enchanting landscapes, visit the safari park, and explore the ruins of Roman villas and ancient churches. The park has golf carts available for touring, making it easily accessible for families with young children.

No visit to Pula is complete without indulging in the flavours of Istrian cuisine. The region is renowned for its truffles, olive oil, and world-class wines. Local restaurants offer a wide array of dishes that incorporate these prized ingredients. Be sure to try traditional Istrian dishes such as fuži (pasta) with truffles, maneštra (a hearty bean soup), and fresh seafood prepared in various ways.

Istria is also famous for its winemaking, and Pula is an excellent starting point for exploring local vineyards. Istrian wines, particularly Malvazija and Teran, are known for their unique character and are often paired with Istrian delicacies, creating a delightful culinary experience.

Whether you're exploring the ancient Roman heritage, relaxing on pristine beaches, or indulging in Istrian cuisine, Pula offers a unique and unforgettable Croatian adventure.
