Located in the tiny hamlet of Barat on the Istrian Peninsula, this luxury villa in Croatia was restored in a carefully crafted integration of it’s original character and rural style.
Built in 1921, the old stone house was originally a farm house and is placed far away from urban life. Recently renovated, both the exteriors and interiors feature the authentic original stonework with restorations using rustic materials such as concrete, limestone, large paving tiles and blonde wood to update and expand the spaces.
The ground floor living room is spacious and bright with a sitting area and open plan kitchen and dining area. There is one en suite ground floor bedroom and two additional en suite doubles on the second floor. Each are dreamy spaces with a calming palette and uncluttered feel.
The house is furnished and decorated with unique, original decor and detail from iTaMacrame and natural accent pieces mixed with modern design.
The outside spaces are designed for relaxation and holiday fun around the pool, with a shady pergola and plenty of lounge spaces.
Welcome package upon your arrival, price includes final cleaning. Wi-Fi throughout, satellite cable TV. On site parking.
