About Simon Jelf
I live in England with my wife and three young children. My wife and I both work and we try to make it out to our villa at least 4 or 5 times a year. We fell in love with the country when we went on holiday and bought the land to build our lovely villa. We named our villa after the peacefuly location and "miran" means peace in Croatian.
Simon Jelf purchased this villa in 2004
Why Simon Jelf chose Mofardini
We love Istria because of the green rolling countryside, vineyards, crystal clear waters and last but not least, the fabulous Mediterranean food. Vilu Miran is in a little hamlet of about 15 houses and is a place to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy lives in England. With Ryanair, Easyjet and Jet2 now flying to Pula, it is easier than ever to get to our place. The nearby coastal towns are excellent for people watching and eating freshly cooked food.
What makes this villa unique
Vilu Miran is enclosed within stone walls and is therefore safe for families with young children. It has its own heated swimming pool with safety cover and a barbecue & dining area for fantastic al fresco dining. For the keen golfer, there is a new 18 hole championship golf course at the Kempinski Hotel about 45 minutes drive away. A fabulous water park has opened recently and is about 30 minute drive away.
