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.

Fantastic place!

5 of 5
We absolutely loved our week in Croatia in this house. The location was very nice with an awesome vista from the dining room and balconies. The pictures say it all really. The owners were very friendly and helpful as well. It was a small store nearby but for the more serious grocery shopping we had to travel about 30 minutes. Would definitely recommend this place!

Lovely hosts and enjoyable stay

5 of 5
Thanks to Guilia & Guido as friendly and generous hosts. The house is small & basic; two small adjoining properties with a bathroom in each, a sun terrace on the room of one of them and an excellent garden with olive trees and a big oak with tree house. There is one other property that shares the garden. My only gripe is that the cooking facilities consist of an underpowered two ring electric stove and tiny oven, so we had to eat out all the time, or live on salads. There's a couple of large supermarkets within very easy walking distance and a 20 minute walk to the sea front
