Homes Away From Home: Medieval Beauty in Croatia

This week’s stunning Home Away from Home is an early 18th Century stone house perched on a hillside in the scenic medieval village of Motovun, Croatia. South-facing and with a large terrace and loggia, the house has uninterrupted views across the valley and offers spacious luxury with a personal touch. For me, one of the main appeals of the property is that it has been lovingly restored over the last few years combining the best traditional and modern materials. From the Istrian limestone floors (equipped with under floor heating) to the custom-designed beds and cupboards built with reclaimed timer, the effort and attention to detail is clear throughout the house.

Arranged over three floors, the house accommodates six adults comfortably and is decorated with a balance of modern and antique furnishings. The terrace, which runs the length of the house, is perfect for entertaining with an el fresco dining table, barbecue and outdoor shower for those hot summer months. The house has just become available for private rental and prices start at an amazing €166 per person per week based on six people sharing. I’ve been wanting to plan a trip to Croatia for a while now and I’ve just found the perfect excuse!
