The 5-star luxury Villa Castrum is a historic rarity, surrounded by the well-preserved ancient city walls in the Istrian town of Novigrad. The property is located in a central but quiet location, straight on the beach. The waves are battering the foundations of the Villa’s terrace. The terrace is a continuation of a great wellness, including a heated indoor swimming pool and sauna. The terrace and the pool are separated only by retractable glass windows so it can be used throughout the whole year, regardless of the weather conditions.
This brand new 4 bedrooms villa rental is impressive thanks to its special “yacht design”. It creates surprise and motion for the occupants and inspires them to completely relax over the majestic sunsets. There are jaw-dropping sceneries from every window of the Villa and the spacious living room looks like it is spectacularly suspended over the sea. The villa comprises three large terraces for sun bathing, the one on the roof top is conceived as a “Heaven for all senses” since it offers an unrestricted 360 degrees panoramic view over the blue Adriatic Sea and the picturesque town of Novigrad. Since in the city-centre, the villa is minutes away from local shops, restaurants and bars.
Novigrad is located on the Western coast of Istria, two kilometers north from the mouth of the river Mirna and about 20 kilometers south from the borders with Slovenia and Italy. The town has not only a rich cultural heritage and preserved natural beauty but also it is an architectural jewel filled with astonishing historical sites. One example of Novigrad’s rich history is the famous city walls that have embraced and protected Novigrad for centuries. Novigrad is also one of the top Istrian gourmet destinations where one can taste many gastronomic pleasures of the Mediterranean food. A series of culinary events are held in Novigrad throughout the summer months where visitors can try traditional dishes made from scallops and other Adriatic shellfish as well as indigenous Istrian specialties such as Prosciutto (dried Istrian ham) and the world famous Istrian Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
When it comes to sport, the Novigrad region is definitely the number one tennis destination in Croatia and the Mediterranean. The most popular tennis tournament ATP Croatia Open Umag is held here every year in July.
Cycling and mountain biking are very popular too, there are more than 500km of bicycle trails designed to help visitors discover forests and streams, trattorias and vine cellars, hidden chapels and ancient ruins of the region. A unique attraction, only 5 km away, the “Istralandia” aqua park (81 000 m2) is opening on the 1st June 2014 for the pleasure of the younger ones.
