Holiday destination Oprtalj, Istria, Croatia
This delightful house is perched above the medieval town walls of the hilltop town of Oprtalj in Central Istria and has breathtaking views over valleys, vineyards, olive groves and distant mountain ranges. The landscape is wonderful; in the spring and summer you are surrounded by lush greenery, and in the autumn a whole range of colours is dazzling – from yellows and golds, to pinks, bright reds and browns. The view towards the town is also charming – sitting on the terrace, among the fig and palm trees you can discern the white Venetian church bell tower across the road, on the little town square.
The house is in the medieval town of Oprtalj also known by its Italian name Portole. The population there is bilingual – Croatian and Italian. All around the town are panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The house is south facing with a terrace planted with vines and a private garden. The garden is planted with a large fig tree and rosemary bushes, and typical Mediterranean vegetation.
From a cobbled road the house is reached through a pedestrian private arched alleyway. It is an extremely quiet and peaceful location very reminiscent of Tuscany. The region is renowned for its food and wine and there are many excellent restaurants within easy driving distance whilst the interior of Istria with hilltop towns and beautiful landscape is ideal for touring, cycling and walking.
All bookings are from Saturday to Saturday for periods of one or more weeks unless otherwise specified or agreed by CVH. The Villa must be vacated by 10.00am on the day of departure and arrival should not be before 4.00pm unless alterations to these arrangements have been agreed.
