The first thing you’ll notice as you enter the grounds of Casa Querce, is the sheer size of the immaculately kept lawns and gardens. There is a pond surrounded by reeds, flowering shrubs of oleander and shimmering pampas grass. The general atmosphere is overwhelmingly rural, despite the lively town of Pula being only a couple of kilometres away.
The gardens also conceal what is probably the property’s jewel: the dazzling pool. Surrounded by sculpted rock gardens and low shrubs, this area gets the sun all day long – though you can seek shade under some nearby holm oak trees and mature lentisco – and it is as inviting and peaceful as you could hope for. At the centre of the grounds stands the ochre coloured house. All on one level it has a cool, alluring interior.
The split-level lounge area is decorated with a number of artefacts, collected during the owner’s past travels, and the traditional Sardinian furniture is set off against the white walls. The well equipped and sizeable kitchen opens out onto a large terrace area, perfect for soaking up the sun and for extended meal times.
This is one of our most popular villas, so early booking is definitely recommended.
Our Guest's Opinion
"The villa itself is large and comfortable but the real star quality is the outside - the grounds are huge, the pool is fantastic and has fabulous views up towards the mountains."
