About the neighborhood
The villa is situated in a quiet village of Vidulini, a corner of nature where a few inhabited houses are surrounded by vineyards, olive trees and intact landscapes.

Road connections to the village are good with the nearest motorway in Zminj, 13 km distance or 15 minutes drive, from where it is easy to continue travelling within Croatia or get to the border with Slovenia and further to Italy and Austria.

The closest small towns are Bale to the West (11 km) and Svetvincenat to the East (4km). Apart from the food shops, bakeries, banks and travel agencies these two small towns are well known for its culture and art. Two established manifestations are 'Last Minute Jazz Festival' in Bale and 'Dance and Non-verbal Theatre Festival' in Svetvincenat.
