I know several people who read Azure Croatia have an interest in interiors (all my other favourite blogs have the interior theme). Although my blog is to air my ideas/views/ surroundings I couldn't help but post this today. I have been working on some properties in the Istrian area - north of Croatia. Properties are quite different in Istria to the ones in Dubrovnik as it is usual in the north to always have fireplaces, central heating, and all insulation from the cold. They always get snow whereas Dubrovnik gets snow once every 45 years (once being Feb 2008). This property is a beautifully restored 18th century villa in Motovun, a fashionable town, famous for its annual film festival. Three bedrooms, and very stylish, the property caught my attention. source.


  1. LOVE those turquoise shutters too!!!! AND the door!

  2. Such a lovely house! I visited Motovun long time ago when I was a little girl. I was born in Istria and I absolutely love it, as I do all the Adria.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I'd love to go someday!
