This luxury apartment in Lovran is just 20m to the sea and close to the city center. It is situated in a villa that was designed by Attilio Maguolo, who built more than eighty buildings in Lovran in twenty years of work. Fully renovated in 2018, it has three bedrooms and two full bathrooms (one with bath and bidet, the other one with shower).
Modernizing the thriving times in which it was first built, this is a stunning update. High-quality Italian terrazzo-style tiles and Slavonic oak herringbone floors make up the updated flooring, while faucets by Zuchetti and Koss and a bath by Duravit exude modern luxury.
Two spacious terraces look onto the Adriatic sea, including Kvarner gulf with the islands Cres and Krk. Filled with fruit trees and vegetables, the private garden invite guests to experience walks and sunrise meals, blessed by the year-round pleasant climate and the region’s unique mix of sea and forest air.

Lovran is situated on Adriatic coast in the Kvarner region. The Lovran area has a 100-year-old tradition of tourism, and is dotted with magnificent architecture, such as the many Austro-Hungarian villas and beautiful churches of the Gothic and Romantic persuasions.
