The villas are unlike the traditional construction in Istria

The villas are unlike the traditional construction in Istria, and have a different stylistic expression than those usually built in Croatia. Since the villas are designed in the contemporary spirit, they stand out in the real estate market.
Two types of villas are being designed, Villa L and Villa Z. There will be three of villa L type and two of villa Z type.


Every villa is designed to blend in with its stunning environment. Your outdoor space is brimming with various native herbs and plants of the best quality, your house walls are made of local stone combined with larch cladding, and your villa’s interior is refined with elegant visual concrete walls and ceilings. Feel all the warmth that Bauwerk wooden floors provide in your living, eating and sleeping areas. This smart villa allows you complete control over its video surveillance, heating, cooling, alarm and lighting systems. When you decide to live your dreams, you should live them in a villa of your dreams.
Can you feel your dreams coming true?


Feel every touch of mild rays of sunshine on your skin while relaxing your body, mind, and soul while enjoying yourself by one of your beautiful pools. Do you like to listen to your favourite music? Turn up your ceiling speakers and dance away: It is your peace of heaven and you should play by you own rules. Our role is to make sure that you have everything you need to make this happen.

State-of-the-art kitchen

Spend your family time in a state-of-the-art outdoor kitchen equipped with the best Miele appliances. Get inspired by the views and scents of fresh herbs to help you prepare the best of what the Mediterranean cuisine has to offer. Let your imagination go wild, whilst keeping an eye on your kids or four-legged family members while they are having the time of their life outside, waiting for their favourite time – lunchtime.
Can you visualise them? We can, and it is the exact vision we pursued when designing these villas just for you.

Nature right at your bedside

Wake up every day with nature right at your bedside. Live the Mediterranean essence of peaceful and fulfilled living from the moment you open your eyes until the time you slip into dreams. What’s more romantic than the breath-taking bedroom view that makes you feel like you've never even stopped dreaming in your comfortable and spacious bed? Head out to the bathroom and relax in your walk-in-shower decorated with special Floor Gres Flowtech tiles, or take a bath. The villa is entirely equipped with floor heating.
In the mood for the sauna? You have it. Enjoy it.

Are you ready?

Your dream location is surrounded by intact nature and great views. Our idea was to create five contemporary-designed unique pieces of architecture by using a style, equipment, and spirit that has not yet been seen in Istria. The ambience is everything in Terra Nostra. Your villa is what makes your divine Mediterranean dream vacation complete and unlike any other. With our years of experience, finest materials, and equipment, and in line with the most recent architecture trends, we decided to make your dreams come true with your life coming to Terra Nostra.

Your piece of Istrian heaven

This is a story about you – you and your ideal way of life in the astonishing region of Istria. There is something unseen for you to reveal. From now on, you do not have to dream about the Mediterranean heaven. You can start living it. Our vision was to create your own personal heaven on earth in one of our outstanding modern luxury villas, set in divine Istria's green and sun-kissed nature.

Spirit of the region

Hidden behind the Učka mountain range, the Istrian peninsula is one of the most magnificent jewels of the Mediterranean Sea. With its breath-taking views of the inland’s heavenly green hills, amazing food, wine and tasty olive oil, it is a place of warmth, rich colours, spiritual peace and relaxation. Wherever you find yourself in Istria, you are just a quick drive away from the unique Adriatic coast, rich with fascinating beaches, clear sea, fresh air and the most delicious fresh seafood.

Perfect destionation

Do not forget to enjoy many fine traditional dishes made of Istrian truffles. You may decide to visit one of Istria's famous wineries and enjoy a glass of Istrian Malvasia, a native wine variety with more than 400 years old growing and winery tradition in this region. Everyone who likes sports and active vacations will find Istria to be their perfect destination – you are all set with its many hiking and walking trails that take you through picturesque hilltop medieval towns surrounded by amazing views over valleys and vineyards. Are you a tennis fan? Spice up your vacation every year by visiting one of the most prestigious ATP tournaments held in Umag.

And where are you?

In Terra Nostra, you are in the centre of it all. A small, peaceful town of Juršići is the best location for your hidden villa where you can relax completely, but still be close to everything life in Istria has to offer.

“We've put a great emphasis on creating a covered outdoor space. The covered outdoor space functions as an extension of the living room, as it usually is the most frequented area throughout the day in summer houses. It was important to create a ‘thick shade’,”

“We believe that quality landscape and garden design greatly contributes to the ambient value of the entire complex, which is an aspect that's been neglected too often,”
