The house and the area was nice for two families with children. The pool was great and we liked small details such as fruit and wine on the arrival plus water. Football table, slide and swing was also very nice for children. We made nice trips to Rabac, Labin and Pula. The view from the balcony was very beautiful!

A great place to launch from into Istria and explore. Easy to find and very quiet. Family Rudan were amazing - really helpful and attentive. The villa is very large and easily accommodated 5 of us. Very much recommend to anyone thinking of visiting Istria.
