Villa Emilia

An original stone house in central Istria

Located away from the city crowds and noise, in the heart of the village Markovići is Villa Emilia, an old Istrian stone house completely renovated in 2018. The building was built in the late 19th century. Our grandmother Emilija was born in this house, so we named the holiday house after her. But even though it is located in the heart of the village it allows you complete privacy with a fenced yard. The location is favourable because it is located in central Istria, only 17 km from Porec, one of the largest Istrian tourist pearls, but also other cities such as Motovun, Pazin, etc.
