Casa Sterna apartment has modern, yet character filled interior spread over four levels of a fully restored medieval dwelling, situated in the heart of a stone-walled town of Portole / Oprtalj, Istria. This fully independent flat comprises two separate sleeping areas with two single and one double bed, spread on two floor levels visually separated by a woven willow screen. This place is suitable for a group of 4. Small kitchen has induction stove and bar fridge for essential cooking needs.
The main feature of this property is a truly remarkable 17th century, naturally air-conditioned water cistern converted to a lounge room under the ground for your use. This apartment is in effect a three story house in a medieval narrow streets setting equipped with a small kitchen, aged oak floors and quirky architectural features throughout, designer master bathroom with heated sandstone flooring and a sunken bath, exceptionally high ceilings, separate sleeping loft with two additional single beds and another shower room and toilet. The living level also offers a small powder room on the ground floor.
The surroundings of Oprtalj are fascinating and beaming with activities to enjoy such as the local art and gourmet scene as well as biking and hiking expeditions. The architecture and fresco paintings in the village churches and surrounding towns are superb so do not miss out on a bit of Venetian culture while you are here.
You will need your own transport to enjoy this location. GPS works wonderfully here and allows you to explore tiny country lanes very successfully.

Sometimes when the neighbouring house isn't occupied it is possible to use a small Mediterranean courtyard and a pool free of extra charges. But this is a lottery and highly unlikely during July and August.
This is a room only normally rented together with the main house but can be rented separately. Please note that the kitchen facilities are limited equipped with only with sink and electric stove.
