This delightful house is perched above the medieval town walls of the hilltop town of Oprtalj in Central Istria and has breathtaking views over valleys, vineyards, olive groves and distant mountain ranges. The landscape is wonderful; in the spring and summer you are surrounded by lush greenery, and in the autumn a whole range of colours is dazzling - from yellows and golds, to pinks, bright reds and browns. The view towards the town is also charming - sitting on the terrace, among the fig and palm trees you can discern the white Venetian church bell tower across the road, on the little town square. The house is in the medieval town of Oprtalj also known by its Italian name Portole. The population there is bilingual - Croatian and Italian.

The landscape is wonderful; in the spring and summer you are surrounded by lush greenery, and in the autumn a whole range of colours is dazzling - from yellows and golds, to pinks, bright reds and browns. The view towards the town is also charming - sitting on the terrace, among the fig and palm trees you can discern the white Venetian church bell tower across the road, on the little town square. The house is in the medieval town of Oprtalj also known by its Italian name Portole. The population there is bilingual - Croatian and Italian. All around the town are panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The house is south facing with a terrace planted with vines and a private garden. The garden is planted with a large fig tree and rosemary bushes, and typical Mediterranean vegetation. From a cobbled road the house is reached through a pedestrian private arched alleyway. It is an extremely quiet and peaceful location very reminiscent of Tuscany.

About the neighbourhood
Food and Wine: The area around Oprtalj is one of the principal areas in Europe for finding truffles. The largest ever truffle (as recorded in the Guinness book of records ) was found in the Motuvun forest just a few kilometres from Oprtalj. The local restaurants specialise in providing dishes incorporating truffles and a grilled steak covered with a thick layer of fresh truffle shavings will cost less than a regular steak in London. On of the most highly regarded restaurants in Istria, Zigante, is just 10 minutes drive down the hill to Livade. In the autumn there are annual truffle festivals centred on Livade and Buzet. Within a 15 minute drive from Oprtalj there is a wide selection of first class restaurants. We provide details and recommendations. Excellent wines are produced in the ar...
