This is a special property! Dating back at least a hundred years, the authentic Istrian country estate has been restored and remodeled using only fine materials and expert workmanship. Beautifully landscaped gardens, a 59 sqm heartshaped pool with pool terrace and 26 sqm BBQ area, a 100 sqm taverna, organic vineyards and olive trees have been added to provide a fantastic setting. It shows! The estate was featured in a well-known magazine last year as an example of a superb renovation of an Istrian stone house.
The property is located in the northwest part of Istria near the well-known Adriatic seaside resort Poreč (13 km) and the lovely town of Vižnjan (1 km) which features an internationally recognized observatory. The region is often refered to as the "Istrian Tuscany" with its rolling hills, picturesque medieval towns, award-winning vineyards and olive groves. Local wines and the Istrian cuisine especially reknown for truffles receive worldwide attention and get ranked among the best in the world.
For anyone looking for an authentic setting to live out ones dreams of an Istrian home on nearly 2 hectares of land, this property deserves special attention. Additional land can be purchased or leased from the neighbours who are all interested in maintaining the beauty of this Istrian gem and the region. 
There are 5 very charming bedrooms and 4 bathrooms on the upper 2 floors of the stunning main building. The ground floor offers a parlour and a very comfortable living room with a nice open fire place. There is also a spacious bathroom with Jacuzzi, a laundry room and storage. Raised by a few stairs an open kitchen and dining area provide a nice environment for dining and gathering. Very fittingly, the owners converted a former cystern next to the house into an impressive 12 sqm wine cellar with a perfect temperature year round. 
An additional 100 sqm separate building (taverna) is located on the other side of the pool area and the gardens. It features a large room with a massive fire place suitable for large groups and festivities inside and outside. A part of that building is equipped to be used as a wellness area with sauna and fitness or for other purposes. Adjacent is an organic vegetable and herb garden, a vineyard and a small organic olive grove. Fields, forests and meadows provide a beautiful backdrop and a habitat for birds, welcoming everyone who gets up on a sunny morning to take in the sights, sounds and fresh air with their songs.
The property can be used in different ways. The present owners live here, produce wine and olive oil and welcome family and guests alike who all comment on how nice and relaxing it is to spend time there. This would be the same response if the property was rented out to holiday makers. With a central heating system and the fireplaces all is cozy and warm even on cold days. Air conditioning units throughout the house provide cooling on hot days for those who come inside rather than enjoying being outdoors. Up to 10 guests can stay in the main building and, for example, receive 5 star service. The additional building could be used for special gatherings, wellness and festivities. There is enough land on and next to the property to increase the current wine and olive oil production, also to add horse stables and have an equestrian property!
