|Name:||Casa Acqua Dolce|
|Casa Acqua Dolce, a house with its own private spa|
This four star holiday house at only half an hour drive from the coast offers the perfect possibility of a day at the beach with the calm of a small mediaeval hilltop town Oprtalj, just North of Motovun, in the interior of Istria, relaxing in your own spa and then a delicious diner on a terrace, while the sun goes down.
The house accommodates 1 to 8 people in all comfort. There are 4 bedrooms, with a large double bed and own bathroom. In each bed- and bathroom we have accentuated a very distinct atmosphere, so different from room to room. The walls of the showers have been plastered with "tadelact", an old Moroccon technique, using special chalk-clay, olive oil and black soap. This together with the "rainforest" shower heads make showering a wonderful experience.
Of course it is the spa or wellness, in the two lower floors, that makes this house so unique. It offers an indoor pool with jetstream/water massage, Jacuzzi, two showers with warm 'cuddle' walls, sauna, cold water bath, relax area with electrical massage mattress and changing room (with refrigerator, wine glasses and even a hair dryer) - more information about the spa.
Furthermore the house disposes of central heating (floor heating). As such the house can be used all year round. So why not come during spring or during the season of the white truffle, which you can find from September till January. We can also offer Internet connection (ADSL) via Wifi.
A special feature is the large panoramic view from the living room and terrace, overlooking a Tuscan-like landscape, with vineyards and olive trees, as well as the main square and the town "lodgia" from the 17th century and the city square with the large chestnut trees. On a clear day one can see the Adriatic Sea and the Alps at the same time (more information). But possibly the best experience is to dine on the terrace at sunset.
The house was completely renovated in 2006. We did respect the historical treasures that we found in the house, such as the old city rampart of the 12th century.
