“This grand country villa and spa is nestled in the heart of the Istrian countryside. Rooms are named after local towns in the surrounding unspoiled hills; couples love the white truffle suite's luxurious four-poster bed. Relax by the pool or explore the endless gardens.

Hotel Review

The Istrian peninsula is often feted for the crystal clear waters of the coastline, meaning that inland towns are often overlooked by travellers. But what the beaches offer in luxury, the countryside rivals in beauty, tradition and stillness. Palazzo Angelica encapsulates all three; set in a stately, renovated, Italian-style villa, with acres of secret gardens fanning out around it, it offers a retreat from the daily noise and hubbub of the nearby towns and cities. With only eight rooms, this exquisite bed and breakfast will soon feel like a home away from home. The spectacular views from the pool are rivalled only by the views from the spa, which offers top of the range facilities and treatments. The friendly hosts will help you to plan trips out if you want to explore the wineries, walking trails or cycle routes through this magnificent corner of Croatia. If you want to feel like you are getting away from it all, this is a good place to start.
