Description

An architect designed modern villa built on a hill top, with views of the lakes and medieval village tops, Casa Roma is the jewel in Istria Deluxe's crown. Built on two levels, leading down to an infinity pool, natural light pours through the villa's huge windows and every detail of its furnishings oozes quality.

Accommodation

The house has a much more modern feel than our other two properties. It has modern Italian designer furniture and contemporary lighting and is a fantastic house for entertaining. The house sits in 3/4 acre of land and sleeps 10 people, in 5 double beds but should you wish to use any of the double bedrooms as a twin this is perfectly possible as there are lots of single duvets available and the beds are large! There is over 3500 square feet of open plan living space with a modern mezzanine open plan kitchen/dining area with incredible views. The infinity pool also has a 25 metre lap lane, ideal for those wanting to keep fit!

Paul Gogarty in the Guardian describes the location as : "Sitting in rural seclusion on a bluff in the undulating heartland of norther Istria...with dreamy 360 degree views of Croatia's prettiest scenery."

  • 4 with super king double beds, 3 with ensuite shower rooms and the master bedroom which has an ensuite bathroom with a large bathtub, over head shower and stunning views. Bedroom 5 hs a double bed with use of a toilet and sink.
