The village of Vranje Selo lies in the middle of a truly wonderful and untouched nature. From the house you can directly walk into the Istrian landscape, amongst woods, olive groves and vineyards.

Several beautiful beaches, such as Cervar, can be reached in no more than 15 minutes by car. The surroundings of Vranje Selo are a paradise for lovers of good wine. Just a few steps away you will find some of the most famous Istrian winemakers.

In the nearby village of Vižinada, only 2 km from the house, there are two grocery stores, a bar, ATM and a post office. In the immediate vicinity there are several restaurants and farmhouses with an exceptional traditional Istrian cuisine.

For kids there is a small playground in the village and some amusement parks in the vicinity like Aquapark Istralandia, Aquacolors in Poreč and Dinopark in Funtana.

Larger cities such as Poreč and Novigrad lie within a quarter of an hour's drive distance, while at the same distance there are the beautiful medieval towns of Groznjan and Motovun, well-known by truffle lovers. In Motovun in July the Open Air Film Festival is held. The picturesque towns of Rovinj and Piran can be reached in about forty minutes by car.

There are several places to do paragliding in the area, even as a tandem experience.

Parenzana, an amazing cycling trail with breathtaking views over the region, extends on the Parenzana railroad track from the beginning of the last century, for 123 kilometers from Trieste to Poreč, passing through Visinada. You can rent mountain bikes right there.

The village is served by a local bus line, but it is recommended that you come by car. The nearest airports are located in Pula and Trieste at about 60/100 km away.
