Motovun is the perfect base for exploring Istria and this is the perfect house to stay in while you’re doing so. Beautifully restored over the last five years by a London-based photographer this four-floor, this 18th-century home is now available to rent by the week. Arranged across 200 square metres, it’s ideal for groups of up to six, with a huge master bedroom, two further large double bedrooms, three toilets, two showers, one bath tub, two living rooms/reception rooms, two terraces and a mature herb and fruit garden overlooking the truffle-packed forest below. The traditional character – original stone walls, an olive grinder – is complemented by the work of local craftsmen and modern technology (flatscreen TV, cable, WiFi, range cooker, dishwasher). Children are very welcome and a cot and baby-feeding chair are provided; pets can be accommodated too. One living room/library has a large open fireplace; the garden comes with a barbecue; there is a dining table and chairs for up to ten, and you can park just ten metres away.
