This beautiful stone-built house in a picturesque reneissance town of Svetvincenat is ideal for a family vacation: a well equipped three bedroom/two bathroom holiday house with an 8x4 m private pool and a courtyard surrounded by stone fence.
Casa Hedera is a traditional stone house, fully renovated, located in a beautiful Renaissance town in central Istria. Svetvincčnat is a place with the most beautifully preserved Renaissance square in Croatia and the old Romanesque church at the cemetery with frescoes. There is also a stunning Grimani-Morosini Castle (built in 1589), which has many times served as a setting for many movies and series filmed there (The Borgias). The town has everything you need for a perfect family vacation: pizzeria, restaurant, two grocery shops, clinic and a pharmacy, post office, 2 cafes and a traditional Istrian Ostarija (guest house). The area is ideal for cycling tours, forest hiking (which is, depending on the season - full of mushrooms or asparagus) and offers numerous natural attractions (caves, ornithological park), and historical monuments (Pula Arena, Euphrasiana in Porec ...). The house has a spacious, stone- fenced yard with pool (8x4m), outdoor shower, BBQ, stone table and a charming lavender garden. It was built in 1830 and in 2007 the house was completely renovated.
It has three bedroom (perfect fit for 6). On the ground floor there is a kitchen, a dining room with a piano and a bathroom (shower, toilet, bidet, washing machine). On the first floor there is a living room with SAT/TV, bedroom with double bed and another bedroom with twin beds. A separate entrance leads to the ground floor apartment which consists of a bedroom, a small kitchen with a dining area, a bathroom with a shower and a toilet. The fenced yard is ideal for families with children. In front of the court entrance there is enough place for two cars to park.
Svetvinčenat is located almost in the middle of Istria, yet some twenty kilometers from beutiful beaches on the western or eastern coast, and just as far from the famous summer resorts of Porec and Rovinj, Istarske Toplice (spa resort), or medieval towns such as Motovun (film festival) or Groznjan (music festivals), and about 70 km from Opatija and Kvarner. It is only 1 hour from Triest and 2 hours by boat from Venice. The nearest highway is 5 km away, but the place itself is nice and peaceful, surrounded by woods and fields, with many bike tracks, a nearby horse riding possibility, some beautiful caves, and above all, lots of local food producers (local dairy, extra vergine olive oil producers, vegetables, cheese, home-made noodles...... you name it!).
The guests will have exclusive access to the whole house, garden and the pool.
Interakcija s gostima
There is a nice girl who welcomes the guests and shows them around, explains how the things work and where are the shops, caffees etc.
Guests are alone at the house, and the contact person will come only if and when needed.
The guests are welcome to use everything in the house and the garden. We would appreciate if you treat our home as your own. This is a friendly neighborhood so we wouldn't like to have big and loud parties. Also, we do not allow pets. The house is a non-smoking area, but there is plenty of space outside for those who smoke.

Recently retired, HR specialist, interested in hiking, ecological gardening, herbs and spices, mushrooms. I spend a lot of time outdoors, I like to travel, although hate the planes, I enjoy my house in Istria whenever it is not booked, and love to wander around the woods picking wild mushrooms.
