Sal101 Buzet Salez
We are pleased to present this most unusual opportunity of half a traditional Istrian stone village suitable for a boutique hotel.
The property is located close to the Slovenian border on a prominent South facing hilltop about 10km from the picturesque hill town of Buzet, where there is a comprehensive range of facilities. The area is famous for truffles and gourmet restaurants and is wonderful for walking and biking. This is the area that writers talk of as the 'New Tuscany'. The area has been famous for two thousand years for its olives and vineyards and was a particular favourite of the Romans, who called it 'Istra Magicka'
The village, which is 350m above sea level, concists of 14 abandoned (although beautifully constructed) limestone houses plus the sites of two further ones and the property extends to 17,000m of well kept terraced agricultural land. Abundant flora and fauna and a breathtaking view over vineyards and rolling hills towards the Ucka Mountain make it truly unique.
The buildings are suitable for sympathetic restoration in the traditional Istrian style and existing zoning would permit the addition of two houses of a harmonius design which would together readily accomodate 30 to 40 guests. Landscaping would provide a terrace and sharedswimming pool with spectacular views, and a tennis court a comfortable distance away from the centre of the village.
Access, as always in Istria, is easy through the European motorway system or, if flying, through Trieste, Pula or Ljubljana airports.
