A holiday rental in Istria places you squarely in the gastronomic heartland of Croatia, where indulging in the fresh seafood, white truffles and local white wines will certainly become a main feature of your stay in an Istria apartment or villa.

Istria is made of lush rolling hills adorned with productive vineyards and scattered with charming, ancient medieval villages, which makes touring the countryside by car, foot or bicycle a real pleasure from a holiday villa in Istria. There are a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites to be discovered, like the Roman amphitheatre, preserved mummies and traditional fishing ports.

It is a character property which retains some old world charm but has good functional facilities and a great pool and garden area including a lavender garden. Svetvincenat is also a good village to tour from. It has enough history and bars and restaurants to keep you interested and is handy for Pula and Rovign. We would highly recommend it as a high quality holiday experience Richard Foxell Windsor England

Myself, my wife and our two children were welcomed by name. That is the first thing you will notice, the extraordinary attention to detail. From booking the villa to the day we were leaving, Vesna and Egidio were simply wonderful. The loveliest people you could hope to meet. There warmth and attention they showed us is reflected in the villa. The bedrooms are individually different but all very comfortable. The living room is quite extraordinary with its large window looking over the village. The outside areas are way beyond most people's imagination, it's just beautiful. The spa room is heaven and the games room is a great place to relax with family. If you need anything, the chances are you go looking for it and you'll find what you want in a drawer. The villa has absolutely everything you need for a fantastic holiday and it's all done with luxury and comfort in mind. So looking forward to going back Phil, Vanessa, Lily and Trystan
