Buje, Istria
Casa Celestina is located in a spectacular position in the village of Merisce in central Istria, an area of great natural beauty often compared to Tuscany. It is on a high ridge with stunning and uninterrupted views of the Adriatic and the Italian coast in the distance. The village also looks out towards other hilltop towns including the ruined tower of the 13th century castle at Momjan and Buje with its striking high church steeple. Merisce is no more than 10 kilometres from the coast. In this region of Croatia, Italian is the principal language.

Casa Celestina is over 100 years old and we have restored it so as to retain many of the original features with full use of the natural materials of which it is built. Beautifully furnished in Mediterranean colours and in a truly breathtaking and peaceful location Casa Celestina provides a uniq...

Casa Celestina is the perfect place to get away from it all. But it still is in Istria, a beautiful Italian region -history has made it Croatia but the few neigbours speak and feel Italian- with everything you need to spend a great summer holiday. Merisce, the village, is just a few houses. We saw a few people only...and they...

Everything was perfect. The communication was immediate and very polite. Services are excelent. We enjoyed the stay in Casa Celestina very much. Casa Celestina is more than an ordinary country house, it has a peaceful soul.

My wife and I stayed for a week in this lovely villa after a hectic touring holiday to Bologna, Trieste and Ljubljana - the perfect place to relax and rest! Casa Celestina is well appointed, comfortable and well located to explore Istria. The locals were very friendly and there was a wonderful choice of superb restaurants at remarkably competitive prices....

About the neighbourhood
Merisce is one of those rare places where a sense of peace and tranquillity prevails. The village of some 45 houses is set along a ridge 250 metres above sea level and provides breathtaking views in all directions. The road through the village becomes a farm track and footpath leading to a delightful chapel. There is no through traffic. The principal town of the area, Buje, is only six kilometres away and is easily reached via a scenic rural road. Buje provides for all shopping and other services, and is itself a charming historic town. The highly regarded Kozlovic winery is close by.

Merisce is perfectly located to explore the hilltop towns of Central Istria and to make trips to the picturesque coastal towns. For cultural experiences there are annual film festivals in Pula and Motovun, m...
