Groznjan District of Buje, Croatia
Villa San Giovanni
Purchased as a derelict village school, Villa San Giovanni is now an impressive 5-bedroom, 5-bathroom mansion, renovated by Rocksure.
It has an unusually large living room, with French doors to a large terrace besides a lovely heated pool and with magnificent views of Tuscan-style countryside towards the famous town of Motovun in one direction and towards the Adriatic Sea in the other.
Our Housekeeper/Cook has run his own restaurant and is extremely knowledgeable on the local wines and along with his wife and maid can provide, on request, cooking and housekeeping services.
PLEASE NOTE there will be a weekly one-off mandatory service charge covering for Meet and greet and housekeeping services applied as follows:
$315 (non peak weeks)
$630 (peak weeks)
$1260 (holiday weeks).

The eastern coastline of the Adriatic Sea is certainly one of the most beautiful and unspoiled in Europe and we believe it is poised to become a fashionable ‘Riviera’ over the next ten years.
The coastline is enhanced by more than 1000 islands which create a yachting paradise. After full exploration of the long coastline and careful analysis of property values and likely trends, Rocksure chose the northern district of Istria in which to invest.
It is often said that Istria is very similar to Tuscany and it is true. Picturesque villages with old stone houses and cobbled streets, tiny shops and attractive restaurants, and a church with spire or tower, cling to the top of the steep hills with stunning views across fields and woods to the next hill-top village in the distance.
The difference lies in the clear blue waters of the beautiful Adriatic Sea which is never far away and, along its coast, more than two thousand years of history unfold.
It is highly recommended to hire a car form the airport in order to enjoy the freedom of one's own transport. Taxi services are expensive, and few and far between.
