Villa History


Staying at Palazzo Angelica villa-hotel in Croatia is a heritage travel experience. Built in the late XIX century, this noble home reveals the unique character of the Istrian history and culture. Beautiful landscapes around Oprtalj were once the exclusive view for a number of wealthy families owning the lands of Istria and homes in Oprtalj.

Descending from the area of Udine in Italy, the Timeus family lived in the heart of Oprtalj, next to the belltower, before they decided to build this beautiful villa. The family is known for having many notable members, such as Innocente, an Agronomy Enginner who was one of the founders of the Oprtalj Beautification Society in 1906, and his wife Cecilia who was the only teacher of the local all-girls school. Their children and grandchildren became journalists, writers, and artists.

Following the Second World War, the villa became public property, while the Timeuses, along with many other wealthy Istrian families, moved away and continued their lives as emmigrants, remembering their beloved native soils in their writing. In the mid-2000 the villa was purchased by family Fattori, the current owner.
