Traditional Mediterranean Villa, inspired by contemporary design, immersed in 5.000 m² of greenery, Villa Marten offers everything a modern guest might expect and, what we believe, definitely needs: ultimate comfort and tranquility in idyllic green surroundings.
The villa is situated on an area of 2.500 m², fenced with a beautiful handmade wall of local Istrian stone and surrounded with forest and meadows. The large garden allows you to enjoy open door activities such as football, badminton and volleyball, or simply chill out and breathe the fresh air in the shade of trees of a nearby forest. Close to the kitchen, there is a small spiral aromatic garden with rosemary, sage, dill, parsley, oregano, thyme, lemon balm, mint and many other herbs… Feel free to pick a stem of spices and simply add them to your dishes. This is the most common and the most natural way to spice up your meals or enrich your cocktails with special freshness and unique flavor. There are several fruit trees on the property, and depending on the time of year, you will be able to taste the flavor of fresh picked mirabelle plums, pears, figs, quince or walnuts. Simply enjoy being immersed in nature.
Green is our natural choice. Just like yours. Villa Marten is the holder of the Eco Domus certificate, which means that we have met as many as 50 criteria confirming responsible behavior towards the environment and the local community. We use ecological cleaning products, natural materials, technology that saves water and energy, separates waste, recycles, uses renewable sources of energy and much more. We support the local community by promoting small local producers of eco food and other products, as well as authentic experiences.
We have added a touch of family spirit to the villa, with few family pieces of furniture, Grandfather’s vineyard tools and wine-barrel, oil lamps, Grandma's sieves… and of course we’ll give you a warm welcome with a bottle of wine produces from the grapes from our vineyards. We really don’t want to overwhelm you with antiques or with Mediterranean temperament, but only introduce you to our friendly and vivid family so almost everything mentioned is squeezed into a small room; where you are invited to enjoy homemade brandy.
