 Gračišće –  Traditional Istrian Stone-house Resort is Ready for Guests
The villas Poli of St. Anton in Gračišće in Istria, have this summer received their first guests. It is a complex of three villas - Villa Melkior, Villa Gašpar and Villa Baltazar where guests are offered top quality accommodation, accompanied with the warmth of an old Istrian fireplace in the atmosphere of rural Istria. These restored traditional Istrian houses surrounded by stone walls offer four star accommodation and are located in the old town Gračišće near the chapel which bears the name of the above mentioned saint. The reconstruction of the old abandoned 18th century houses took two years. The villas have been renovated with a unique blend of traditional and modern. They are furnished with renovated authentic furniture, and as the owners intend to offer the facilities throughout the year, each room is equipped with under-floor heating, while the rooms are air conditioned.

Each villa has satellite television and guests are offered the use of washing machine and a shared outdoor barbecue. In due time, the complex should get an outdoor pool with sun lounges and an outdoor shower and a gallery. Guests can also use bikes and equipment for table tennis. There is a rustic wine cellar which can accommodate 25 to 30 people. The tavern is located at the ground floor of Villa Baltazar, the largest among the three two-storey villas, whose total floor area is 200 square meters and which can accommodate 8 persons. Villa Melkior has a capacity for 4 to 6 people, and Vila Gašpar is the smallest with a capacity for 2 to 4 people.

The complex is suitable for team building and welcomes pets.

Gračišće is fairytale-like medieval town rich in architectural and historical heritage located in the heart of Istria. It is also the town with the highest altitude in Istria and therefore has an extremely pleasant climate and unbelievable views. In the past, it was a favorite summer residence of the bishops, and more recently it has been increasingly in demand as a tourist destination. The beauty and uniqueness of the monuments of cultural and historical heritage preserved in the landscape are the greatest value of Gračišće, which is visited every day by more and more curious enthusiast who are energized in this ancient city by the tranquility that is reflected on the streets bordered by ancient buildings which all lead towards the tall bell tower from the 18th century and the parish church from the same period. One of the striking particularities of Gračišće is its urban structure; the city, once surrounded by walls, is divided into quarters each of which has its own square with a church.
