Very Good

“Perfect Croatian holiday”

Reviewed 31 Aug 2016

We stayed for a week, and didn't want to leave. Selma met us in nearby Svetvincenat and whisked us to the villa. She showed us everything we needed to know about the house and left us to settle in. The setting is truly beautiful. Very peaceful, quiet location. The pool was pristine clean as was the entire house. The three rooms each have their own bathroom and small dressing area. Enormous beds, crisp cotton bedding. A stunning upstairs terrace, perfect for watching the glorious sunsets with a glass of wine in hand. Cannot praise this property highly enough. The pics can't portray the lovely feel of the place. Nearby Rovinj perfect for waterside restaurants. Our kids also loved Istralandia water park which was an easy day out from the villa. We hope to return.

Owner's reply: Thanks a lot for a beautiful review! A family that I would love to see and host again! Best wishes to all!
