Holiday Rental House
Generously bestowed with delightful features, this photogenic house is a testament to the artistic talents of its local owner. Downstairs, the scene is set by terracotta brick flooring, open faced stone walls and original wooden beams, Crisp white armchairs and interesting decorative touches adorn the living area with a contemporary kitchen to one side and a modern bathroom opposite. Rising from the ground floor, a curved wooden stairway with wrought iron balustrade leads up to the galleried bedroom where the combination of ornate antique furniture, subtle lighting, wooden floor boards and vaulted beamed ceiling creates a lovely atmosphere. Throughout the house, gleaming walls of exposed stone provide the perfect backdrop to display a selection of the owner's own art collection.

Throughout the house, gleaming walls of exposed stone provide the perfect backdrop to display a selection of the owner's own art collection. From the living area double doors beckon you into the extensively lawned garden. A crazy-paved pathway draws the eye naturally across to the private swimming pool, conveniently sited near a large olive tree that provides a welcoming canopy of shade. From the pool there are views directly across to Vodnjan itself, dominated by its famous Venetian bell tower. Reputed to be the tallest in Istria, the tower is an impressive sight at any time of the day but perhaps most attractive at night when the soaring structure is almost completely illuminated. The pebble beaches of the Adriatic (and several excellent seafood restaurants) are just a 10 minute drive away at Fa~ana from where you can also take a ferry over to the neighbouring Brijuni Islands, a stunningly beautiful national park to which access is strictly controlled. The largest island, Veli Brijun, is world famous as the site of former President Tito's summer residence and is a place where many a head of state and Hollywood celebrity has been entertained in lavish style.

About the neighbourhood
Vodnjan and surroundings In the past, Vodnjan was an important urban center and so today this town is an interesting destination especially for those who love art and culture. Walking around the old part of town you'll surprised by the multitude of buildings from different periods: Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque. To emphasize the family palace Bettiza, the popular Castle, built in 1300, now houses the museum. Very interesting is the parish church of St. Biagio whose bell is by far the highest in Istria (62 meters). In the church are preserved mummified bodies of saints and a collection of relics. The village of Peroj, situated on the south-western coast of southern Istria, with a beautiful view of the Fažana Channel and the Brijuni Archipelago. The architecture of the old nucleus remind...
