This old restored Istrian house with natural pool is located in the heart of the Nature Park Dragonja. The river Dragonja is 27km long, very clean and untouched. The Dragonja valley is also part of the “Natura 2000” network.

This old Istrian house is located at the heart of the Nature Park Dragonja..The house and the property can be visited by Youtube under the name VILA ISTRA AUTENTICA.In 2018 we made a natural swimming pool next to the house. The basement consists of a swimsuit and a plant-cleaning part in which water plants are planted which purify water. Thanks to them in the pool we do not use chlorine.

The location of the house is a perfect spot for discovering both Slovenian and Croatian Istra, as well as the inland of the country; Postojna cave, Lipica, Ljubljana (the capital), lake Bled, etc. Venice (Italy) is also quite close (1h 40min by car) as well. There are also many interesting places in the near Croatia, such as Golf Club (9km) and Aquapark Istralandia (15km), just to name a few.

The space:
This old Istrian house is located at the heart of the Nature Park Dragonja. The park gets its name from the river Dragonja which is 27km long and it is the only Slovenian river that does not flows through any town. This makes it very clean and untouched. The Dragonja valley is also part of the “Natura 2000” network.

The house was built in 1899 and renovated in 2015 with an extreme aim to preserve the traditions of those times. The roof, for example, is newly covered but only with original, old bricks. The windows and the doors are made of wood from and were done by a local carpenter using traditional methods exclusively. They are uncoloured and treated only with tung oil. The interiors of the house are original, vintage pieces from local towns. There is also a region coin and bill collection from 200 b.c. up to nowadays.

There is a table for 6, a stoned kitchen counter with sink and a bbq in front of the house. On the west side of the house there is a beautiful grapevine pergola. There is a living area with an old fireplace, a table, a bench, a fridge and a gas cooker, a bathroom and one bedroom for two on the ground floor of the house. On the first floor there is a master bedroom and another bedroom with bunkbed. Outside there is an outdoor shower.

The house is powered by the solar electric system. The only source of water is the rainwater which is collected in two underground reservoirs. The water is pure and does not contain any additives such as chlorine.

The house stands on a big property 4000 m away from the sea, which can be seen from the roof. It’s quite isolated, the next-door neighbour is 1km away. There is a 2000 m2 regularly maintained lawn all around the house and 2000 m2 of maintained Istrian woods suitable for tends. The remaining 6000 m2 of the land is an untouched meadow. There are also many hiking paths in the area.

The location of the house is a perfect spot for discovering both Slovenian and Croatian Istra, as well as the inland of the country; Postojna cave, Lipica, Ljubljana (the capital), lake Bled, etc. Venice (Italy) is also quite close (1h 40min by car) as well. There are also many interesting places in the near Croatia, such as Golf Club (9km) and Aquapark Istralandia (15km), just to name a few.

This is an ideal place for those who love privacy, nature, tradition and want to switch off from chaos and noise yet are not that far from many different attractions. Guests can rely on the help of the host 24 hours a day.

Wir hatten einen wunderschönen Aufenthalt in dieser kleinen Oase. Das Haus ist stilvoll, einfach und rustikal, die Landschaft und die Natur rundherum traumhaft und die Kinder waren superglücklich in dem schönen kleinen Badeteich direkt am Haus. Allerdings muss man mit Kleinkindern wegen des tiefen Teiches natürlich ein bißchen aufpassen oder ihnen immer Schwimmflügel anziehen. Der Gastgeber hat sich rührend um uns gekümmert, am Feiertag, als die Läden geschlossen waren, sogar Brot und Kirschen aus dem eigenen Garten vorbeigebracht, und uns persönlich die schönsten Badestellen an dem nahegelegenen, kristallklaren und herrlich kühlen Bach gezeigt. Auch zum Baden am Meer war sein Tipp Gold wert, über die nahe Grenze nach Kroatien rüberzufahren, wo es sehr schöne Badebuchten zum Schnorcheln gibt. Es war wunderschön und wir kommen sehr gerne wieder.
