Istria is a sight to behold. The stunning views are a feast for the eyes, from distant mountains, valleys, olive groves and vineyards to the vast forests and wheat fields.
Its rural parts are as glorious as its coastline. The area is rich in culture and history with museums and galleries to explore. There are several historic sites including a Roman amphitheatre in Pula, and the stunning Euphrasian Basilica in Porec. The area is also renowned for its delectable truffles and truffle-hunting tours can be easily arranged. For the wine-lover Istria has many local vineyards which offer excellent tastings, including the award winning Benvenuti in the town of Kaldir. The culinary delights do not stop here – the area is home to some fabulous olive groves, producing some truly delicious oils.
Vrsar, the nearest town to the villa, is a real hub of life and has plenty to offer. There are some gorgeous little beaches dotted along the coast, and plenty of restaurants and bars, as well as must-see historical sights.
The unmissable Motovun Film Festival is in the last week of July. The main square of the hilltop town is transformed into an outdoor theatre, and screenings take place throughout the day and into the evenings.
Somewhat surprisingly, the coast is just 20 minutes away – perfect for a wander around the seaside towns, perhaps stopping at one of the many brilliant fish restaurants serving the freshest of fish straight the boats you see arriving in the harbours. For those who fancy a dip even closer to home, there is the Mirna River.
For the more active and adventurous, there are wonderful walks, perfect for experiencing first hand the glorious Tuscan-esque scenery. Mountain bikes can be hired if you prefer to take in the views at a faster pace, and horse riding too.
The delights of the area are to be found all year round, with the official truffle season from September to January, and daily local markets in Rovinj and Porec while winter guests can enjoy the amazing Christmas markets in Ljubljana, Slovenia
