Situated in the centre of the small and quiet fishing village Fažana, only
20 meters from the sea, Villetta Phasiana offers the experience of peaceful
Mediterranean living, far away from everyday stress. The same building,
dating from the 16^th century, received its first guests more than 100
years ago when it was a mansion for merchants and travellers coming to
Fažana. At the end of the 19^th century, Fažana developed economically,
especially thanks to the Austrian businessman Paul Kupelwieser, who in 1893
decided to buy Brioni islands. In the next two decades through considerable
investments and the help of Robert Koch, later a Nobel Prize winner, he
transformed, the malarial and unapproachable islands, into a small heaven
on earth, which soon became elite tourist destination.
After the Second World War Brioni islands became the residence of the
Yugoslav president Tito, closed for public like Fažana itself, and the
building of Villetta Phasiana was abandoned and over the next 50 years
In 2007 Villetta Phasiana was finished and the building was renovated with
much attention to every detail, preserving every stone wherever possible.
At the same time it was equipped with modern technology, combining in a
perfect way old with new. Today every passenger who passes by Villetta
Phasiana is curious to look into the most beautiful building in the old
town of Fažana.
With its 18 charming rooms with view on small fishing port and the Brioni
archipelago, Villetta Phasiana offers a warm and intimate atmosphere where
every guest can find peace and tranquillity. In the hidden Istrian-style
garden, in the bar La Barchetta, or on the bar terrace where the light wind
brings the unique fragrance of the sea, everyone has an opportunity to
experience the stillness of small Mediterranean village.
Situated at walking distance from the old town, the beaches covered with
fragrant pinettas extend both north and south of Fazana. The rocky
configuration of the sea-bed and the mild current between the mainland and
the islands of neighboring Brioni, make the water crystal-clear. Apart from
quiet beaches Brioni islands offer golf, polo, tennis, riding and biking.
Only 5 km from Pula, famous for one of the world’s best preserved Roman
amphitheatres and only 12 km from Pula international airport, Fažana is
easily reachable but still isolated from crowds and noise. As a small
fishing village Fažana promotes its tradition and is well known for its
Fishing academy “Pilchard” among many gastronomy, wine and olive oil
festivals. And within an hour of journey by car one can reach an Istrian
inland, a Toscan-like landscape, home of Tartuffe and place where one can
taste different dishes prepared with that magic mushroom.
