Secret Istria - Luxury vacation rentals


Rolling hills like in Tuscany, Venetian hilltop and coastal towns, oysters and seafood like in Brittany, truffles like in Piemonte, rustic taverns like in Provence- Istria is a magical 21st century playground for those who love the sun, sea, gourmet food, world class wines, award-winning olive oils and Roman ruins.

Open any upmarket guides or magazines like the Conde Nast Traveller, Lonely Planet, National Geographic Traveler, the Vogue, or the FT travel and you will come across the most picturesque towns in Istria: Rovinj and Motovun.


One of the most beautiful seaside towns in the Mediterranean, it still has the feeling of the old Cote D’Azur with its pretty old fishing harbour, glamorous 5 star Hotels, upmarket restaurants + bars, and its new mega yacht marina. Surrounded by beautiful beaches and islands- it is a maritime paradise.

Our seafront palazzo is the ideal property to soak up this coastal lifestyle right in the heart of the old town and still be quietly tucked away from the hustle and bustle.


Perched 277 meters above sea level, Motovun is the most picturesque hilltop town in Istria. Views stretch over the fertile Mirna valley down to the Adriatic sea. The deep oak woods at the town’s base are where truffle hunters find this precious treasure. Istria’s best wine and olive oil producers are on the door step, and many rustic taverns and agro tourism offer delicious truffle, meat, and game dishes.

Our secluded farmhouse is the ideal home to explore this bucolic dream landscape.
