This recently refurbished villa was named one of the ‘50 Best Villas in the Mediterranean’ by The Sunday Times in 2017.
A stunning five-bedroom property just outside Pula, Villa Virago exudes a unique sense of style, where crisp, white-washed walls meet an eclectic mix of modern and vintage furnishings.
Outside the villa you’ll discover a good size swimming pool surrounded by decking, with plenty of oversized cushions where you can relax and soak up the sunshine. There’s also a four-poster bed, perfect for a little afternoon nap. The garden is home to a fragrant mix of lemon and olive trees, along with a perfectly kept lawn which is home to a pretty, flower-covered al fresco dining area, ideal for leisurely meals.
Back inside, the open-plan living and kitchen area is bright and airy, with plenty of comfortable seating and all the modern facilities you would expect. The master bedroom has French doors opening onto a large balcony, which can also be accessed from a small upstairs living area. Both the twin bedrooms have outside access, one leading to the garden and the other to a private terrace and seating area, surrounded by jasmine and bougainvillea.
Villa Virago is located within a small cul-de-sac in the little coastal resort of Perd’e Sali, and just a short walk will bring guests to the marina, or Porto Columbu Beach, which is a mixture of sand and pebbles. Nora Beach is just 5km away, offering a lovely stretch of soft sand, and we highly recommend a day or evening in Pula, where you’ll discover yet more beaches, and a charming town filled with bustling piazzas, home to a variety of restaurants and shops. There’s also a weekly farmers’ market, held every Tuesday on Via 25 Aprile.
