Former village school to luxury villa to rent in Istria, Croatia

 

Overview

Purchased as a derelict village school, this property is now a 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom mansion.

It has an unusually large living room, with French doors to a large terrace besides a lovely heated pool and with magnificent views of Tuscan-style countryside towards the famous town of Motovun in one direction and towards the Adriatic Sea in the other.

Our Housekeeper/Cook has run his own restaurant and is extremely knowledgeable on the local wines and along with his wife and maid will look after you extremely well.

The location

The eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea is certainly one of the most beautiful and unspoiled in Europe and we believe it is poised to become a fashionable ‘Riviera’ over the next ten years.

The coastline is enhanced by more than 1000 islands which create a yachting paradise.

It is often said that Istria is very similar to Tuscany and it is true. Picturesque villages with old stone houses and cobbled streets, tiny shops and attractive restaurants, and a church with spire or tower, cling to the top of the steep hills with stunning views across fields and woods to the next hill-top village in the distance.

The difference lies in the clear blue waters of the beautiful Adriatic Sea which is never far away and, along its coast, more than two thousand years of history unfold.
