The views of the sunset from this property are something to remember, and when the owners were deciding where to build their dream house, the sight of the romantic sunset was one of their main reasons.This lovely new stone house is owned by a young couple who have put a lot of effort to make this place comfortable as well as decorating it with much style and good taste. The property sits on the western side of the Ucka mountain which is a nature park and is ideal for hiking. In fact, there is a walking path that goes directly from the the back garden and leads to the top of this mountain, the highest in Istria; the peak of this is at 1400m, and offers fantastic views of the peninsula, Kvarner Bay and even of Venice on a clear day.
Villa Luka is located at the edge of the Kozlak village , which is 7 km away from the sea. The nearest shop is just 3 km away in Vozilici, where there are good restaurants/pizzerias such as Antonio and Tri Murve. Labin with its historical hilltop centre is 10 minutes drive away - here you will find a supermarket, banks, plus lots of shops, cafes, and restaurants. An excellent fish restaurant called Ferali is on the way to Labin. For more fish restaurants with outside tables overlooking the sea, go to Rabac, which is another 5 minutes drive from Labin. Rabac has probably the most beautiful beaches in Istria and you will find lots of watersports, and boats to rent. There are tennis courts in Rabac too.
Do not miss one of the best agritouristic farms with a superb restaurant in Gologoricki Dol, just 20 minutes drive away from the house, where together with the excellent Istrian traditional food prepared with the best quality ingredietns, you can also enjoy horseriding.
Gracisce and Pican, two of the most picturesque little hilltop towns in Istria, are also just 20km from the cottage.
