Spacious and well appointed property just on the outskirts of Rovinj. Dorijana and family who although lived next door to the house were extremely helpful but maintained a discrete privacy. The property was very easy to find, although initially challenging to find the turn off the main road in the dark. The pool was ideal and a nice size for a refreshing dip ! The house and the Gardens were well maintained. All said We loved it. The road network was brilliant and great for driving around to some of the local villages away from the touristy hustle and bustle of Rovinj.
Well, where do I start.......
Let’s start with Branimir.
He met us at the airport on Saturday 15th September just after 8pm and waited whilst my husband, Andy, sorted out our hire car, which took us until gone 9pm.
Then he took us to a supermarket so we could buy provisions for the first few days. He had a few bits to buy for himself but he mostly waited in his car for us to finish.
Then he led us to the beautiful countryside house which was to be our home for the next 10 days.
Even though it was extremely late by now he said it was his pleasure.
He was so kind and helpful and the pride he took in showing us around his wonderful house was evident in his face and his words.
The house was huge and welcoming and even though we had seen the pictures on the website, seeing it in person took our breaths away.
Everything was so clean, from the kitchen to the bedrooms. We chose the attic room as it was bright and airy and SO big but also had a real cosy, romantic feeling to it.
We had the best nights sleeps there.
Each bedroom has its own bathroom and there is also another one downstairs. This room also has a washing machine plus storage shelving with everything from sun cream to cleaning products! Everything is provided.
The front garden is huge with a massive conker tree (which we enjoyed collecting ) and seating for over 8 people.
Then the back garden....... so quiet and private with the beautiful pool.
There was nothing we could fault.
This holiday for us was all about rest & relaxing and peace & quiet and spending time together, but it was also our first visit to Croatia.
So we did venture out of the house a few times.
Rivinj. What a beautiful town. You must go! And when you do you need to find The Mediterraneaneo Bar by the water. That’s all I will say.
Pula is also a beautiful place to visit.
So yes we had a wonderful holiday. Made friends with a cute dog who would visit most days and also had a surprise visit to our back gate by a bull!
Think he may have been called Bruno......
Would we recommend this house? Yes!
Would we go back? Yes!
Should you go and stay there? Yes!
We totally fell in love with our little piece of Croatian paradise.
Oh and thank you again Branimir for our gift from you of the olive oil made by your cousin. Such a thoughtful present. Andy cannot wait to try it.
