Local Information

Villa Zora is situated in a quiet hamlet just outside of the hilltop town of Motovun. The nearby forests provide the perfect conditions for truffles, and truffle-hunting tours can be arranged. There are also some excellent local vineyards that offer excellent tastings and tours, including the award-winning Benvenuti in Kaldir.

The nearest restaurants are located on route to and in Motovun itself, so within a 10 – 15 minute drive from the house. Its also possible to head to the coast for the afternoon, and nearby Porec and Novigrad offer some great seafood restaurants, walks, swim spots and water sports such as jet skiing and tubing.

Our View

Villa Zora is set on a hilltop on the edge of a tiny hamlet and boasts the most spectacular views across the stunning Istrian countryside. The villa has been lovingly converted with contemporary interiors, all mod cons and glorious grounds.
Outside the beautiful swimming pool enjoys the same amazing views as the house, stretching out over the valley and forests below. The uninterrupted views of the Istrian hills will distract you from your latest bestseller and will keep you going all winter long. There is a large eating terrace which also has comfortable seating, the perfect spot to sit in the evening and enjoy something cold while watching THAT view.

Why We Love
The open-plan living space framed by those incredible, never-ending views, provides the perfect place to relax. The furniture is Scandi-cool, very high quality, beautiful wooden chairs, hand made baskets and modern sculpture all come together to create this glorious space.
This is a truly lovely and extremely stylish house, and one we know you will love as much as we do.
