/ Beautiful location, spotlessly clean and excellent
On arrival we were greeted warmly by the host Carmilla, plus her partner Adrian had phoned us the day before to check on our arrival time. We felt very welcomed and were shown in detail all the facilities of the villa. It was very clean and we had everything that we needed for a relaxing two week holiday. The location of the villa is very central in Istria and so we were able to drive to all the places we wanted to visit. The villa has fantastic views across the valley and of the town of Motovun on the hill. There are a few houses nearby, but apart from that it was very secluded. The swimming pool was ideal as it was not too deep and had a shallow shelf to lie on. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a great BBQ as well. The beds were comfortable and all the rooms were spacious. There were also two bikes available for our use and we were able to cycle to the local shop in Livade for bread in the morning. Nearby in the local villages there are many restaurants with Croatian food and we enjoyed eating at the restaurants in Motovun as well. Carmilla visited us after the first week to bring us freshly cleaned linen for the beds and towels for the bathrooms.
We would highly recommend a stay at this fantastic villa.
/ Wunderbare Erholung in schickem Haus
Wunderbare Erholung in schickem Haus mit bestem Blick und tollem Pool
Das Haus bietet alles, was man zu einem entspannten Urlaub braucht. Es ist toll ausgestattet, sehr gemütlich eingerichtet, sehr gepflegt, verfügt über ein schönes Grundstück, welches ebenfalls sehr gepflegt ist. Der Pool war für uns dank der zugebuchten Poolheizung jeden Tag ausgiebig zu nutzen. Sonne konnte man auf den zahlreichen Liegen in aller Ruhe genießen. Der Blick übers Mirnatal ist traumhaft. Mit unserem Hund konnten wir schöne Spaziergänge in die Natur unternehmen. Da Trüffelsaison war, kamen wir auch kulinarisch voll auf unsere Kosten. Vielen Dank an Adrian und Karmela für die sehr freundliche Betreuung! Wir kommen gern wieder.
/ Toller Urlaub für Familie mit Hund
Wir hatten einen sehr freundlichen Empfang durch die Besitzer Karmela und Adrain. Tolles und sauberes Haus (welches 100% den Bildern entspricht), sehr gut und liebevoll eingerichtet. Wer nicht jeden Tag in den großen Pool möchte, kann den tollen Wasserpark oder das Meer in ca. 25min. mit dem Auto erreichen. Das Haus liegt abseits des Tourismus in schöner Umgebung, d.h. wer Ruhe sucht wird sie hier finden. Dennoch ist man mit dem Auto in 5-10 min. an einen der vielen guten Konobas. Wir als vierköpfige Familie mit Hunden hatten wunderschöne Tage in diesem Haus verbracht.
Nochmals lieben Dank an Karmela und Adrian, ihr seid super Gastgeber und hattet uns bei Fragen immer sofort geholfen.
Liebe Grüße von Fam. Wolter
Wunderschöne Lage mit herrlichem Ausblick für sehr entspannte Ferien.

/ Million Dollar View from Luxurious Villa Alba
Four of us stayed in June at Villa Alba in June and were captivated by the natural surroundings and the luxurious villa. From the moment we arrived when we were met by Adrian and Carmela our hosts we knew this would be a special week. The quiet location of this villa located in a spectacular valley overlooking the hilltop town of Motovun is truly a sight to behold, the villa has it all and upon arrival it was clean and welcoming. It was exactly the relaxing break from our busy lives we all needed. The villa is located in a serene location and is within a short drive to many of our Istria’s favourite locations. From here you can visit Pula, Rovinj, Buzet and many wineries and scenic locations in Istria within a half hour drive. A perfect place to rest, relax and experience Istria at the pace we wanted, at the end of each day we looked forward to returning to Villa Alba for a swim, dinner and gorgeous sunset. We absolutely recommend Villa Alba to anyone looking for a spectacular place to stay while enjoying everything Istria has to offer and we look forward to coming back often. Thank you Adrian and Carmela for a wonderful visit to your Villa Alba!
/ Einfach perfekt zum Entspannen!
Wir haben den Urlaub in der Villa Alba sehr genossen, die Ruhe und der fantastische Blick ins Mirnatal haben uns schon am ersten Tag unseren Alltgsstress vergessen lassen. Das Haus ist perfekt eingerichtet, die Zimmeraufteilung ideal für uns und unsere Tochter. Der riesige Kamin im Wohnzimmer hat uns gleich sehr gefallen und wurde von uns voll genutzt - da zu Ostern noch kälter als normal. Karmela und Adrian sind perfekte Gastgeber, jederzeit bereit für Anfragen und hilfsbereit. Wir fanden es so schön dass wir im Oktober wieder kommen möchten!
/ very nice and relaxing house in the hills
Very nice and relaxing house in the hills with a great view!!!
Very friendly owners who welcomed us in the house and explained everything. The house is very nice, in the hills above Livade with a great view over the landscape of the vale of Mirna, in the distance is Motovun to see. The house is stylish, modern and comfortable. Our three children had a lot of fun in the pool. One highlight was the telescope with which Saturn could be observed at night. In the nearby Livade there are two restaurants in which truffles can be enjoyed and a small supermarket. You can easily make trips to Motovun, Groznjan, Porec or Rovinj. We had a great, relaxing week at Villa Alba!
After 2 weeks in beutiful Brac we took the car up to Villa Alba for a week stay. And when we arrive we met the owner Adrian and his wife. Already there we felt this will be great.

/ Beautiful house!
This is a truly beautiful house, with fantastic views of the valley, while nestled into the lovely Istrian countryside. The house has been sympathetically renovated, maintaining the original charm of the old house.
The Owners were really friendly and helpful, and on arrival made us feel like we were old friends staying in their beautiful house.
The house and pool/pool area are beautifully furnished, and well thought out. The location is idyllic, with walks straight from the door (Parenzana Railway Track Route for example). The historical hill top town of Motovun is only 10min drive away, the nearest supermarkets approx. 25mins drive away. The lovely town of Rovinj 50mins, Pula 1hour drive away, yet when you are in the house you feel like you are miles from anything.
We can totally recommend this house.
a really beautiful house - a mix between the old charm and modern interior.
Additional a perfect location to reach all interesting points in Istria.
Very kind and helpfull owners.
Only the pool was to cold to swim in at the end of September :-)
We could recommend this nice house
