Luxury Villa Istria Estate is in its one part attached to the owners’ residence. Full privacy and intimacy is guaranteed by the separate entrances and separate pathways as well as by the fence that separates the two units. The possibility to quickly contact the owner represents a particular advantage and additional security.
An unusual path paved in stone leads from the car park to the house. It is peculiar for the Glagolitic letters carved in the stones as well as for the explanation of the meaning of each letter in Latin. Glagolitic alphabet was a Slavic alphabet used in the Middle Ages in Istria, till the 19.ct. We believe you are going to have fun on your arrival searching for the initials of your names in Glagolitic.
Middleaged noblemen were the owners in the Middle Ages
Middleaged noblemen (seigneurs) were the estate owners in the Middle Ages.
|The origin of the family is closely connected with the name of the most famous Istrian and Croatian reformer Matija Vlachich Ilirik (Matthius Flacius Illyricus), born in Labin (1520-1575). He was the greatest Croatian Protestant theologian, religious historian and philologist, educated in Wittenberg who closely collaborated with the icon of Protestantism – Martin Luther.|
