Rustic holiday home in Istria, Croatia located between Rovinj and Poreč.

This lovingly-restored stone house in the peaceful Istrian village of Mrgani could be yours to call home for the duration of your holiday/vacation in Croatia.  Sleeps 2-5 persons comfortably.

entranceThe house was probably built in the 1700’s and the restoration, which tried to keep the character and as many original features as possible whilst introducing modern amenities, was undertaken from 2006. It has three upstairs bedrooms, one en-suite double, and a double and single which share a bathroom, all of which are cosy under the low-beamed ceiling. Downstairs, the entrance room leads to a spacious kitchen/dining room and charming living room, with its original exposed stone wall. These two rooms are connected by a stone archway and both have wood-burning stoves. The total interior space is a comfortable 120 mē.

gardenThere is a modest-sized garden, that is partly stone paved and part lawn, and parking at the rear of the house for two cars.

The house is located at the edge of the village, with minimal passing traffic, and looks out onto wooded countryside.

The village of Mrgani is located near to the ancient ruins of Dvigrad and in the area of the Lim Fjord. Its precise location is on the road from Kanfanar to Sv. Lovreč, 6 & 9 kms distant respectively and 21 kms from Rovinj and Poreč.
