In cooperation with nature and its best fruits, the property fits perfectly within the landscape far from the noise, traffic and crowd. It is great to relax and recharge bateries. Things to do: Things to do can be unique, refreshing, imaginative, surprising – Glavini Estate and Istria can offer all this and more. Whether you are looking from your holiday action, inspiration, relaxation or want to discover Istrian treasures and people do it your own way and these are just some suggestions. In autumn we have truffles from nearby woods and it is possible to organise unique 'truffle hunting' experiences. In that period we also harvest grapes and olives with organic production of vine and cold pressed extra virgin olive oil. In winter from January to March we have unique traditional Istrian Carnival events, with rich entertainment program. The spring is reserved for picking the asparagus, cherry's and other seasonal fruits. The summer brings a plenty of choices from visiting the nearby sea resorts south, east and west from us or checking out some of many regional art and cultural festivals. Estate: Kids are welcome. Guests can swim in our large 8x4 m pool, relax in the massage or fitness room and enjoying a sweeping view of the landscape. There is also a kid's playground, table tennis, badminton and bocce (closely related to the game of boules). If you are into cycling, we are in the right spot to access and visit all of Istria. We have around 300 organically grown olive trees as well as 20 cherry, a dozen fig and many apple, peach, pear and plum trees, all organically produced along with our vegetables which are all at your disposal during your stay, depending on the season. We believe that we are an integral part of the earth and nature and we use renewable energy as much as we can. The home is fitted with solar collectors with an under floor heating system, run using renewable energy. Water is collected from the roof, so as not to waste precious resources. We are also connected to a natural spring with drinkable fresh water. Location: It is the perfect location for exploring the delights of Istria, the rest of Croatia, Slovenia (20 km) and Italy (30 km) as well as many tourist spots in the surrounding area. The property is in sight of the town of Draguc, close to Buzet (12 km), Motovun (12 km) and just 35 km from the sea in any direction (north Trieste, west Porec, Novigrad or south Opatija, Rabac, Rijeka). It sits nestled in a landscape of gentle, rolling hills, rich in Mediterranean flora.

Detox Woche
Ich habe eine Woche Detox gebucht und war mit dem Ergebnis und die Fachkenntnisse sehr zufrieden. Es war eine sehr angenehme persönliche Atmosphäre. Ich habe 6kg abgenommen und fühle mich voller Kraft. Die Unterkunft ist nicht luxuriös aber super sauber und absolut ausreichend. Ich werde im nächsten Jahr wieder hinfahren.

Best family vacation ever!
We had our best family vacation at Villa Glavini. The other 3 families that went with us agreed too. Stunning location, the kids loved the pool and very welcoming owners. We did day trips out to Venice, Trieste and Llubijana and whilst these were fantastic, we all agreed that our days spent at the villa and visiting local places in Istria were magical (such as hiring a boat for half a day from Rovinj). We will definitely be back!

Location is top
Set away from traffic noise and views this property is perfect to relax and wind out from hectic city life. We did tracking to Draguc 60min, this is spot to visit also Motown. Hum all within reach. They also offer great massages. Try some vine and truffles are not to be missed.

I recommend!
Amazing vacation! We spend great time in Villa Glavini. Maybe the most beautiful place I visited in Croatia. My room had view on one small historic city named Draguć, in the top of neighbor hill. Waking with this view and watching sunrise behind that hill worth much more than we paid. Anyway house is great, clean, garden beautiful, pool also very good, but the owners are something special. They prepared for us last night Istrian traditional dinner. It was also great. I recommend this villa for everyone who wants to spend couple days in Istria!

A wonderful house in a wonderful nature
In Glavini we had with our familiy the best time, we ever had in a holiday. The house is beautiful and the owner with his family was a real friend. The landscape was a dream. The people in Istria are very friendly and the small towns near Glavini are beautiful.

Incredible views, excellent facilities, great times!
Recently stayed at this villa with 11 of my closest friends. We had an incredible time here. The pool, BBQ, and ping-pong table were highlights. The views into the valley were some of the best I've ever seen too. Highly recommended.

Great, great, great holiday!
We came in Istria with bit of a prejudiced, however this holiday opened another world for us. Many thanks for the hospitality, good recommendations for restaurants and things to do see in the area. This is a great estate in a great and unique location. If you looking for a peaceful and tranquil holiday to recharge your batteries, this is the one.
