Villa Covri

Feel the energy of the villa made in the 16th century by stone from the field nearby.

Covri on the old Venetian means the heart – the generations of owners gave it to the place and the youngest made a full renovation in 2017 – winning awards and named Best Project in 2018.

Stroll through the Istrian countryside, near the wonderful town of Novigrad, and walk the 4 km to the nearest beach.

Living areas

Take possession of the open concept living and dining area together with a fully equipped kitchen on the ground floor.

The stone found in the house is an original stone from the time the house was built and is the same as any stone in this house, hand-drawn from a nearby field and hand-carved and hand-worked.

When the house was renovated, every stone was taken out by hand, numbered and returned to the same place as it was.


Nestle down in one of the three spacious bedrooms, all with en-suite bathroom on the first floor where from one of the bedrooms you have a terrace from which you can directly access the garden.

The other two comfortable bedrooms, also with en-suite bathroom each, are located on the second floor.

Medieval Istria Tour

With a local guide we make a full day excursion to visit the magical Istrian hilltop towns Motovun and Grožnjan and discover some hidden castles and churches, learn about the amazing history of the inland Istria, taste the homemade bread and olive oil and have a typical homemade lunch in a rural environment.

Where is it?

Villa Covri is located in the village “Covri” (the village is named after the Villa), and the village is near the smaller Istrian town of Brtonigla. The villa is located in the middle between Brtonigla, Umag and Novigrad, which gives it an ideal position for all kinds of activities.

We had a warm welcome and spent an intense week with well distributed activities. Yoga classes were possible even for beginners particularly as we were in a small group. We had very carefully prepared meals, met wonderful people of different nationalities and this allowed us to build up a nice energy. The outdoor meditation was a great time for a reconnection to our dear mother earth.

I also enjoyed the hiking day to discover the region of Chiang Mai.

The teachers gave us high quality methods and practices.


Thank you, Miliza, for all your organization, I spent a very good time, met nice people, learned so many things during these few days, was eating healthy food, visiting nice places. The massage was so marvelous, I recommend to everyone to try it, the herbal hot compress is good for relaxation!

The meditation in the middle of nature and with the presence of a monk was one of the highlights, a pure moment of relaxation. The chanting of the monks was also an unforgettable moment shared together.

It was a nice retreat, it was so fun, wonderful time spent with this group. Hope to see you again for another retreat.


The retreat in Chiang Mai was an unforgettable week, physically and emotionally intense. Real moments of exchange and sharing around yoga and meditation. This retreat not only rejuvenated me but I felt regenerated as the days went by.

I think the place was particularly well-chosen, Miliza, and the synergy of the group really allowed me to be as relaxed as ever! I also think practicing disciplines like yoga and meditation in connection with nature helps tremendously to let go and feel reconnected to oneself. A gentle well-being!
