Holiday home and three rooms at Guran Estate in Istria, Croatia - swimming pool, garden with aromatic herbs and natural surroundings
It is believed that centuries ago a Roman soldier named Gurianum received this place as a gift. Guran was later named after him. Nowadays, on the hill south of the small village there are ruins of an ancient Guranium.
Back in the 1900’s our family purchased the building in Guran, not knowing what impact it will have on the fourth generation of the family together with children and grandchildren. In the year 2004, the family began to restore this old building while preserving its local characteristics (wood and stone) and the original beauty of the Istrian landscape in which the house is located.
Guran has significant historical and cultural heritage, its remains are stored in Vodnjan palace, and the location is nowadays the site of the remains of several churches/basilicas. Its medieval name was Gropi or Old Guran, and the place was first mentioned in 1908, as Guranis. Gropi/Old Guran is located about 100 meters from the present settlement. Gropi has a parallelogram shape with smooth walls, the ground is paved with stones that are still preserved in some places and visible, and the brick wall has the design of fish bones.
From 2002 to 2008, this area was the location of various research projects covering the Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages. The excavations were the location of the discovery of the remains of a prehistoric triangular-shaped handles, pottery, cookware from the Middle Bronze Age, around the year 1500 BC and 2800 BC.
