This is a superb Croatian villa which offers 4 comfortable bedrooms, a private wellness centre, and a big private garage for 6 cars, an exceptional private swimming pool and a beautiful large garden. Situated in Icici, at the edge of glorious Opatija, in a calm and green area, only 150 m from the sea, it is an ideal holiday home for Croatian elite villa accommodation.
Opatija was famous as the "Adriatic Monte Carlo" at the end of the 19th and the beginning of the 20th century. Villa Angiolina, built in 1844, marked the beginning of tourism in this "Adriatic pearl". When the Austro-Hungarian empress Maria Anna spent 3 months in Opatija, her words about the divine place on the Adriatic coast spread quickly through Europe. The list of famous guests who were fascinated by Opatija is long: Austro-Hungarian emperor Franz Joseph Habsburg, Prussian emperor Wilhelm II, emperor Ferdinand I of Bulgaria, Norwegian-Swedish king Oscar II, Italian king Umberto, Romanian king Carol I, king George of Greece, composers Giacomo Puccini and Gustav Mahler, dancer Isadora Duncan, actress Tilla Durieux, writers James Joyce, Anton Pavlovich Chekhov, Henryk Sienkiewicz, Vladimir Nabokov and so on. There's rarely a nation that hasn't left its trace in Opatija. And in turn it is interesting that Leo Henryk Sternbach, the inventor of valium and one of the 2
5 most influential Americans of the 20th century by poll in U.S. News & World Report 2003, was born in 1908 in Opatija.
Today Opatija is an outstanding gastronomy resort with an excellent architectural heritage and extraordinary parks. Private Villa Calista is only 2 km from the centre of Opatija which can be easily reach by car in a few minutes or by foot by the unique "lungo mare" in 20-30 minutes.
