THE GROUNDS

In former days the house was a farm mainly growing olives and wine.  Over the decades the farm was abandoned: grass and bushes overgrew the land completely.  In 2001, Count and Countess Meran bought the property, and rebuilt it with a lot of care and attention to detail into the landscaped paradise it is today. 

The Pool 

Through a charming stone path you reach the lower terrace of the estate, on which a large pool and pool house is located within  The pool and pool area look out on an olive grove with grazing sheep and the wide lush valley that ends in the Adriatic Sea. The pool house features a full kitchen and grill and can be used to seat 12 for lunch or dinner.

LOCATION

ISTRIA &  LOCATION 

Istria is the north-western part of Croatia and, across the Adriatic Sea, opposite the city of Grado. With its charming hill-top villages, it is reminiscent of Tuscany. Istria is very picturesque with vineyards and olive groves in soft rolling hills that are lined with pine trees perfect for exploring. The ancient cities of Rovijn and Poreč with their Venetian style architecture are great day trips along with the many villages along the coast.

Villa Dramac is built in a quiet, secluded location without direct neighbors on top of a valley between the villages of Buje and Momjan. The location is spectacular: seated at the top of a lush valley with a view over terraced gardens, olive groves and vineyards with the sea on the horizon. On a clear day one can see the faint skyline of Venice and Grado across the Adriatic Sea, or even the Dolomites mountain range.

 

The sea is a 15-20min car ride away. Trieste airport (Italy) is a 1-hour drive and Pula airport is a 40 min. drive away.
