Zastani – secluded, peaceful location for retreats with access to wild beaches

Vila Zastani offers up to 8 apartments for hire that can accommodate up to 24 people, for retreats of all types, surrounded by nature, and only 10 mins walk to the beach


‘Zastani’ means ‘stop for a while’ in Croatian and is a fitting name for this lovely villa, situated in exactly the kind of special place where you would want to stop for a while.
Set in a very secluded and peaceful location, surrounded by nature, 250m from the sea, with access to two wild beaches, in Istria, it is the perfect place to retreat, reconnect and re-emerge.
And is ideal for those who love nature, the sea, great views and tranquility, and want to get away from the madding crowd, seeking peace and quiet to be able to focus on their activities or inspire creativity, as well as just kick back and enjoy the silence.
Although it has a feeling of remoteness, it is easy to reach, and there are two airports nearby with regular connections to most major European cities.


The centre offers accommodation in up to 8 self contained apartments with a comfortable capacity of 12 people, although this can be increased dependent on sleeping arrangements.


Local chefs can be arranged to take care of catering or there is also a fantastic daily food delivery service provided by Valfresco, as well as 5 large supermarkets nearby, for those that want to cook their own food.

Opening Times and Prices

Vila Zastani is available to hire as a retreat venue from October to June (not during the very hot July-September summer period). Please note that the weather in the Spring and Autumn is also usually very pleasant with many sunny days and temperatures in the 20’s (like summer in Northern Europe) although it can sometimes be unpredictable. Winters are also very mild.
Prices start at 3000 euro, based on a 7-day rental, with additional charges for catering, other services and logistical support, if required.

Directions and Travel

Vila Zastani can be reached by car or bus, from both Pula airport (45 mins) and Rijeka Airport (1 hour) and Trieste Airport (1.5 hours). The nearest landmark is Flanona Hotel, which sits on a sharp turn on the main coastal road between Plomin and Opatija/Rijeka. There is a small road next to/behind Flanona Hotel leading down to the hamlets on the coast. Take this road and follow the signs for Jurasi (bearing in mind that you should always be going down hill towards the sea and never up). When you enter Jurasi, you will find Vila Zastani at the bottom of the hill, at the end of the road, on the right. There is plenty of free parking at or nearby the property.
