The story about
Villa Brbon is located at the foot of the village Krbune, mentioned back in the 14th century and owes its name to the coal (karbun), which was produced by the inhabitants of this region.
Firstly, it is important to explain the origin of the name of the Holiday house “Villa Brbon”. In all Istrian villages each family has a nickname that is well known by everybody. And so the Šilić family, or, to be more precise, the grandfather, from the Šilići village had been given the nickname Brbon because he liked to argue with his neighbors, friends and with those who annoyed him. The word brbon means “grumpy” and “grouchy”. All this is the exact opposite to the householders of Villa Brbon and to the soul of the house, so we are aiming to connect hospitality, peace and pleasure with the name Brbon, by keeping at the same time the memory of the “grumpy” grandfather, without whom you it would not be possible to enjoy and relax in one of the most peaceful places in central Istria.
