I love everything about this lovely old stone house, perched on a hillside in Motovun in Croatia. It belongs to Ben, a friend of my husband Archie; he and his family have spent years restoring it - building cupboards from reclaimed timber, sourcing original copper baths - and it's finally available to rent (it sleeps six). Every detail - from the glass table lamps to the shade of green on the bedroom walls - is in the best possible taste and has me itching to redecorate. For prices and availability, visit the very smart new website. Pictures: Villa Angelo.
