About the villa

Providing plenty of space for a family holiday, Villa Olea is an appealing, perfectly proportioned property set in exceptionally large grounds. Situated on the edge of the rural hamlet Radetići, it is well placed for day trips out to the coast (Rovinj and Poreč are only a 30-minute drive) and the Istrian capital Pula, as well as exploration of the countryside where vineyards, woodland, fields, gorges and mountains combine to stunning effect.

Enclosed by a wall of local Istrian stone, the garden of Villa Olea is made for families with young children: flat and mainly laid to lawn, it is an enticing space for games. A well established hedge provides a sheltered spot for the pool area. Three beautiful olive trees add to the landscape.

Equally appealing, the house is as spacious inside as out, with the ground floor divided into two zones: a kitchen/dining area (recently refurbished) and a living room complete with pool table. French windows along the front open out on the terrace, from which the pool can be seen. The space upstairs too has been used effectively to ensure that the three bedrooms are of similar size, with en suite facilities and access onto balconies.

The nearest amenities (mini market, café, restaurant) are in Kringa (4km) and Sveti Lovreč (7km), both traditional Istrian villages, rich in history. Those seeking adventure can try ziplining and caving in Pazin (21km), those looking for a more relaxed time can visit the picturesque coastal towns such as Poreč (21km), and Rovinj (29km), where Venetian style architecture sits against the backdrop of the Adriatic Sea. Foodies should head to the restaurants on the Limski Kanal for fresh oysters and mussels. For a full day out, explore the Brijuni Islands, the east coast (Rabac, Opatija) or even Venice (ferries depart regularly from Poreč).
