Istria has laid out its wonders in the garden of the Mediterranean, at the foot of the Alps. The blue Adriatic Sea washes its shores, and the towns strung like pearls along the coast: Umag, Novigrad, Poreč, Vrsar, Rovinj, Pula, Rabac - the towns that have made Istria a famous destination. But there is also another Istria, a hidden Istria, whose treasures are also worth exploring - the inland heart of Istria, green Istria, a land between dreams and reality, a land of beauty and peace of history and clean, unspoiled nature. Its towns and its people will bid you welcome and let you share in their spirit and the times long gone. Welcome to the land of history, beauty and vitality!
Already at the entrance to the Villa Fiorella estate which is located at the Santo Spirito site, you will realize that you are in a place that will give you totaly different kind of relaxation. Greenery supremely rains, in its most beautiful and natural shades, and scattered details of stone, through roads, walls and buildings faithfully based on the tradition of rural Istria, only add to the exquisite, almost perfect colours.. Being close and feeling far - priceless!
Closeness of provisions and contents, good traffic connections and a small distance from the urban centre are certainly desirable, especially if you are on a family holiday with children. On the other hand, the true relaxation is only possible with the feeling of intimacy, discretion and mild isolation from modern civilization and busy everyday life.
Villa Fiorella, an autonomous country estate close to the old town of Labin, is where both desires meet. It is a great advantage as well as additional security that the owner's residence is located just by the estate. Of course, separate entrance, access road and fence guarantee full discretion.
The estate is located on nearly 20000 m² of carefully landscaped grounds, and it contains almost all the natural benefits of rural Istria - a mini farm with domestic animals, orchards and vegetable garden, from which the guests can consume ecologically grown fruits, an outdoor fireplace with a grill and numerous recreational facilities such as tennis courts, swimming pools, golf exercises and trekking paths.
The old family house was given complete renovation and renaissance of style a few years ago, when it was customized to the ultimate detail for high-level holidaymakers, with a measured dose of luxury and unique aesthetic solutions in almost every corner. Villa Fiorella has a total of four bedrooms and it is wonderful accommodation for up to 8 persons. Every area in the Villa has its own personality – including the rooms.
On the ground floor is double bedroom room dominated by subtle elegance, tailored from bright, warm tones that emphasize the sense of comfort. On the first floor is another double bedroom - it brings playful colours of love and the atmosphere in which the spirits of Amor and Eros are interwoven. Next to it is another bedroom, the most daringly decorated room in the house, with accentuated romance supported by a terrace with a beautiful view of the estate gardens and the sunrise. Fourth bedroom is open towards its southern part, with a terrace overlooking the swimming pool and sunbathing area, and a tennis court next to the forest which surrounds the estate. All bedrooms have en-suite batrooms, TV and two of them have terraces.
Classic full wood kitchen in the colour of vanilla equipped with all the necessary kitchen appliances will provide you the pleasure of preparing meals from freshly picked groceries from our own garden, and a large massive wooden table with 10-person wooden chairs will provide you enjoyment of joint meals and socializing at the table. The daily part which is characterized by cleanliness of lines, simplicity and modernity, is located next to a large modern stone fireplace, intended for relaxing with a book, fire from the fireplace, watching TV or movies on DVD and listening to music. The living room was refined by works of local academy painters confirming the authentic story of Labin, a place where many artists sought refuge and inspiration.
During cooler nights, we suggest socializing next to the fire of a classic fireplace in the tavern next to the pool and the terrace. Here, in the relaxing, informal atmosphere of an authentic, rustic ambience of Istrian tavern with a fireplace, you can enjoy the preparation of meals, relaxation and socializing with a glass of wine. Large covered terrace with elegant garden furnishings, located in the shade of century-old oak tree, is located right next to an attractive pool that is naturally flowing, like a waterfall, along one side. Below the covered terrace, in its corner next to the swimming pool, there is an open stone fireplace for barbecues. This arrangement allows for a continuous stay as well for outdoor dining.
For those wishing to stay in the safe area of Santo Spirito, there is no lack of sports activities - from tennis courts and golf practice fields to a large swimming pool and a serene walk to a really spacious, well-kept home garden. The 7-hole golf exercise field on artificial stone surface offers the pleasure of playing golf for all generations. The host provides you with basic golf equipment (sticks and balls). For all those who achieve the tranquillity of the spirit by bodily activity, Fiorella estate is an oasis created for recreational or active recreation. From calmer and less demanding activities such as practicing golf kicks, walking trails inside the estate or swimming in the pool, to serious sports such as tennis, Nordic walking or jogging - the spacious estate offers plenty of content for a physically active vacation.
Where the green hills meet the sea, where nature and heritage become one, you will find Labin – paradise for artists.

Here you can not only look at art works, but experience them, live them… Labin is situated on the eastern coast of the Istrian peninsula, only 40 km away from Pula-Pola and 60 km from Rijeka. This historical and administrative center of eastern Istria, used to be inhabited as early as 2000 BC.
