If a tourist to Croatia were to stop a local here in Croatia, be it in Umag, Poreč or Pula (these cities in particular, as this villa in Croatia with private pool is closest to them), even maybe in the continental part of Croatia, and ask: “Which is the Croatian villa with pool you very often hear about here?”, you’d most probably get the answer: “Stanzia Baracija.”

Not because the place is well advertised, but because many locals crave to spend at least a day there once in their lifetime. You’ll find out why as you read on.

A rarity among Croatian villas with private pool in the heart of Istria

If you can afford to spend your summer holiday in Croatia there, you can consider yourself lucky. Many people will envy you, not merely because this villa has a private pool but because Stanzia has almost a unique position within the Istrian peninsula - it’s in the heart of the peninsula. Bigger cities are to the east and west, at almost the same distance.

And just nearby, you could maybe even dare to walk there (if you’re not that prone to laziness), lies Motovun, a small place (we wouldn’t call it a town, although you can find it described as such on the internet) where you can still feel the spirit of medieval times.

But back to Stanzia Baracija now. Many mention the villa in Croatia as being the most luxurious in the part of Croatia closest to Slovenia and Italy.

Even Forbes, the American business magazine, has written an article on Stanzija, one of the Croatian villas with private pool, a property in Istria you can rent for a maximum of 16 persons.

It’s the scenery that will amaze you at this Croatian villa with private pool

Here’s a short introduction into the scenery that will greet you when you'll be arriving to Stanzia Baracija.

Situated on an expansive five-acre family property, the Baracija estate offers a truly magical experience. Nestled atop a hill in the heart of Istria, surrounded by ancient natural beauty, you'll discover your new holiday home amidst carefully cultivated vineyards and olive groves. You'll be captivated the moment you arrive at the arched entrance and catch sight of Baracija. Originally constructed in the 19th century, this estate is enveloped by organic vineyards and olive groves, providing complete privacy and a connection to untouched nature, tranquility, and serenity.

And right after these three benefits this Istrian villa offers now comes the private pool. It's much needed when it’s too hot in the inland because the next beach is some 20km away.

Located in the village of Krasica, near Groznjan, 164 meters above sea level, Baracija is easily accessible from the closest airports in Portoroz (30 km away) and Pula (85 km away).
