Žminj is a small town located in the center of the Istrian peninsula at the intersection of regional roads leading to several major towns in Istria: Pula, Rovinj, Poreč, Pazin and Labin. Roads from the town lead in all directions, creating the so-called spider web that connects 103 villages of the Žminj area. Roads lead through many fields and gardens, forests and pastures, and the most interesting way to visit them is on foot or by bike. The nature in Žminj is truly exceptional. The regions surrounding Žminj are also interesting because of their ever-increasing development of agro-tourism and recreational tourism. Villa Cala is located in this area.
