For those that are looking to totally immerse themselves into the fascinating history of Istria, the enchanting Villa Principi is the ideal choice. Perched at the edge of an impossibly picturesque old stone village, surrounded by miles and miles of beautifully kept olive groves, vineyards and wooded hills of the picture perfect Istrian countryside, the villa has been lovingly restored and given a new lease of life by the current owners using locally sourced materials and traditional techniques, preserving the heritage of this delightful home. Its timeless appearance belies interiors that have been decorated with a great deal of charm and taste and furnished throughout with beautiful, inviting sofas and armchairs, antiques and artefacts, all softened with warm rugs and cushions. The traditional and comfortable style combining wood-beamed ceilings and exposed stone walls provides a lovely relaxing rustic ambiance, while the colourful wallpapers pack it with retro chic. The four air-conditioned bedrooms, each with a modern ensuite bathroom, are distributed over three floors (two are on the upmost, one on the middle and the fourth on the lowest), the cosy sitting room with a minimalist wood-burning stove is on the middle floor while the kitchen and dining area are at the lowest, allowing direct access to the private solar heated swimming pool with a paved terrace boasting a beautiful authentic stone built barbecue house and an al fresco dining area. With the doors thrown open to the courtyard, guests can serve anything from a simple breakfast to a gourmet dinner, the abundance of fresh produce available in this area offering plenty of inspiration. Beautiful stone walls define the lawned garden laced with a variety of flowers, herbs and green hedges. There is a deep sense of beauty, of peace and of perfection. All with a touch of magic something that only lots of love and attention to even the smallest of detail can create. Winding roads lead from the village to some of the prettiest villages and most interesting towns of Central Istria, all within a short drive.

The enchanting medieval hilltop town of Groznjan is known as a ‘town of artists’ and exudes true Istrian charm and history offering spectacular views across hills blanketed with vineyards, hamlets and farmhouses, and the magical Mirna Valley. Classical concerts, art exhibitions and jazz festivals, artistic, dance, drama, as well as peace activism workshops are hosted here, bringing this peaceful little town to life. The number of towns and villages to visit is too long to list; this is the heart of Central Istria, one of the most beautiful spots in the world. It is also famous for local Malvasia and Teran grapes, virgin olive oil, home-made cheeses, prosciutto, barbecued meats, and of course truffles, all of which can be sampled in restaurants within the many villages and towns of the area. There are numerous hiking and cycling trails, one of the most stunning of them being the historical Parenzana old railroad trail which offers a unique ride on a tourist train along the route as well. The main coastal resorts of Umag, Novigrad and Porec, quickly reached along excellent roads, provide extremely varied leisure facilities, good nightlife, bars and restaurants.
