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.

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). The sea is just 20 km from the estate.

Stanzia Baracija welcomes you to the best that life has to offer. With spaces for both gathering with loved ones and finding moments of solitude, the main house and guest house are linked by inviting outdoor areas. Villa's hosts are dedicated to providing impeccable service, ensuring relaxation and complete comfort throughout your stay.

The estate boasts meticulously landscaped grounds with Mediterranean plants, encompassing 3000 square meters of green space, a fragrant garden, an orchard, vegetable and herb garden. Stunning Stanzia Baracija offers you a true vacation experience, with a spacious garden, a swimming pool with a sun deck, a private wellness area with fitness facilities, a large sports field, and a variety of activities on the property. Surrounding the estate are charming roads beckoning you to take leisurely walks or bike rides, hiking trails, and historic towns waiting to be explored. Istria is renowned for its delectable cuisine and exquisite wines, making it a capital of flavors and aromas that will accompany you throughout your stay.

Originally a 19th-century Stanzia, Baracija evolved from an agricultural hub into a haven for relaxation. Today, the estate has undergone a complete renovation, combining historical reverence with modern luxury. Spanning nearly a thousand square meters, the main and guest houses can accommodate up to 16 guests. The main house accommodates 10 guests across four floors, while the guest house offers additional privacy and tranquility, featuring a shared living room, three bedrooms, terraces, and breathtaking views of nature. Adjacent to the main house, you'll find an outdoor summer kitchen with an open fireplace and a grill, a large communal table, and a terrace that guarantees unforgettable socializing.

The estate also offers a pool house, featuring a heated overflow pool with fresh water and hydromassage (9x15m), dressing rooms, sanitary facilities, and a pool bar.

On-site activities include cooking courses, wine, and olive oil tastings, poolside massages, picnics in the olive grove, painting courses in nature, beekeeping workshops, and various sports such as tennis, basketball, football, badminton, volleyball, table tennis, and bocce (boules). You can also indulge in yoga sessions, wellness treatments, and gym workouts.

The house and its history have been carefully preserved during the renovation, using locally sourced wood and stone - the original materials that built a thousand years of Istrian history. The architecture of Baracija is Mediterranean, with a rustic and modern interior design. It features a wine cellar, a playroom with darts, Playstation 5, and shuffleboard, as well as a private cinema. The central air conditioning system and individually controlled underfloor heating provide comfort. An elevator and Bluetooth speakers are also available.
Each painting and sculpture in Baracija tells its own story, adding richness to the space. The white walls of Istrian stone, framed by wooden windows, harmonize with the surrounding nature.

Indoor and outdoor living and dining areas, indoor and outdoor fireplaces, and a barbecue grill provide versatile spaces for relaxation. A built-in wooden grill and a large wooden table for 20 persons on the summer terrace are perfect for gatherings.

However, the greatest quality of Baracija is the sense of peace and tranquility it offers to its guests. Regardless of the season, we extend a warm welcome to the estate, inviting you to indulge in a once-in-a-lifetime experience in this unique setting. Stanzia Baracija is the ideal choice for guests seeking to book a villa in Istria.
