We offer four Istrian style villas in the small village of Barići, Istria. The villas are located 12 km (7.5 miles) from the sea (Poreč) and are near (3 km or 1.8 miles) to the small Istrian town of Višnjan. Along with the living rooms, bedrooms and bathrooms, the villas are also equipped with wonderful wood fireplaces and hydro-massaging bathtubs. In front of each house there is a lovely swimmin pool and a sunbathing area. The most prestigious materials have been used. For those who want to enjoy a quiet and peaceful vacation, far away from the city rush and noise.
When you drive down the west side of the Istrian Y you will see a little village on the hill – Višnjan. In the streets of the old part of Višnjan you can experience the spirit of the rich historical heritage of this place. Every stone, every corner, and each family can tell you a legend or a true story about the villages past.
Go down the Venice Lion path, or perhaps, ride a bike on the Star Trail and experience the simple enjoyment of the rural idyll that offers peace, clean air and beautiful scenery, or by visiting the geno-park with indigenous Istrian cattle “boškarin”, and Višnjan observatory.
You can feel the preserved authenticity in the rich variety of traditional Istrian cuisine, quality wines of renowned winemakers, olive oil and many other local and ecological products, which you can taste in the comfortable surroundings of the wine cellars, pub, restaurant or agrotourism.
