Hi, we are Marina & Mike. We have been hosting guests at Villa2M for quite few years and never tire of it! We await our guests with a basket of locally sourced goodies such as olive oil, wine, salami and cheese and plenty of advice on how to make your holiday memorable.

Weather you are looking into relaxing or a more active holiday, Villa2M is ideally located in a quiet village close to many cycling and walking paths, as well as an easy drive to the many kilometres of unspoiled beaches.

The space
Villa 2M is a collaboration of contemporary design with traditional workmanship; an inspired space with interior and exterior finishes by renowned Croatian designer Boris Ružić. Located in the heart of Istria, the house is found in a small village with grocery & hairdresser and has an easy access to most local attractions, including the picture perfect Rovinj.
The villa is spacious and light. It has many unique custom designed features such as the fire place and chimney finished off with stylish furnishings, tasteful art and lighting. Villa 2M will delight the lovers of everything modern but balances it with traditional finishes. The house itself covers 360 sqm of living space with around 100 sqm of covered and open balconies for all tastes.

A further 90sqm is being developed in the basement for 2019 to include a bar, gym, double shower, kitchenette and lounge/cinema. The gym area can be customised to suit your needs: either available as a reasonably equipped gym with cross & suspension trainers, boxing bag, speed ball, yoga, turbo trainer (on request for keen amateurs), steps and weights or soft play with wendy house and slide.

On the ground floor guests can enjoy cooking in a well equipped modern kitchen with a 12-14 person dining table. The fire place provides the centre piece of the ground floor, which leads to both the living room and the kitchen. There is guest toilet on the same floor, meaning there are 6 bathrooms in total.

The modern galleried staircase leads onto the first floor, where there are the 2 master bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and large covered balconies with a sea view. On the second floor there are three further bedrooms. There is one twin bedroom with separate bathroom, a twin / double with en-suite (which can be easily converted to either twin or double upon request) and another master bedroom with en-suite bathroom and an open balcony with panoramic views of the unspoiled woodland and sea. All beds are super-king double beds or large singles.

There is plenty of outdoor space on its spacious covered balconies with a large 10 person dining table for al-fresco dining. There is a good family sized infinity pool with 10 lounge chairs for guests to enjoy. The villa comes with a couple of bikes for guests to use where the nearby town of Svetvincenat can be leisurely visited with it's well known castle and restaurants.

Additionally the host is training to be a MTB cycle guide so can offer practical help and experience in planning your trips. Or you can just relax at the villa where we can offer local produce deliveries such as cheeses, vegetables, local wines and olive oil. Or home deliveries from some of the local restaurants.

Where you’ll be

Smoljanci, Istarska županija, Croatia

Smoljanci is a lovely rural Croatian village. There's a good balance between local and tourist properties with the majority of the village being lived in all year round. The neighbours are friendly and usually say hello. They may even try to sell you their own eggs, olive oil, wine or honey! All of which we regularly buy and can recommend.

The two closest towns are Svetvinčenat and Kanfanar. Svetvinčenat is 5 minutes away by car. It has a few small grocery shops, pharmacy, doctors, dentist, two pizzerias, a restaurant and few coffee shops. The best thing though is the castle and it's moat. Very picturesque!

Kanfanar is again about 5 minutes by car and has coffee shops, a pharmacy and a good sized supermarket that doesn't get too busy. Best of all it has a very well recommended independent butcher for all your bbq needs.

The surrounding area is superb for mountain biking and road cycling at all times of the year. Whilst we have provided some basic cycles for short trips we would strongly recommend to bring your own bike to fully discover the area if you can. The extensive regional routes are well sign posted having cycled many of them ourselves. They also cater to all abilities.

The region itself is renowned for it's locally produced wine, craft ales, olive oil, truffles and food. There's plenty to see and do from visiting wineries to sampling olive oil, to eating out in the many restaurants in the area. Throughout the year there are many food festivals such as the "big game" tuna festival in late September to gourmet food festival in Rovinj.

And then there's the sea and it's crystal clear waters. Much of the coastline is protected so it's easy to explore. There are plenty of places to hire everything from kayaks to windsurfing, motor boats to dolphin watching. You can choose from secluded beaches to ones with beach bars and restaurants. Additionally there are plenty of islands to visit. Brijuni is a good day trip.

Hi! My name is Marina. I am a Croatian but lived in the UK for 18 years. My young family and I moved recently to this beautiful country. I love art, indie music, films with subtitles & red wine!

I travelled a lot around the world and honestly think Croatia is absolutely stunning and a fantastic holiday destination. Come and visit!
