The villa has all you need with a large fully equipped kitchen and seperate lounge. The bedrooms and bathrooms are generous sizes. There is a lovely pool and outside chairs and tables. We walked most days using the cycle routes. You can pick up leaflets at the Tourist place in Motovun. We hired bikes one day from Montana Bikes in Motovun (15 euros a day) - they were very helpful. We cycled the old railway route. The surrounding area is beautiful and peaceful and we visited places within a 45 minute drive. There's lots of atmospheric hill top villages. We ate at Toni's agrotourism on three evenings. The food is homely, rustic, good quality and reasonably priced. The other evenings we ate at the villa. We shopped in the mini market at the foot of Motovun which had fresh daily bread, fruit and vegetables and fresh ham and cheeses. It has a reasonable selection of other basics ie coffee, wine, pasta etc. We did one large shop at Lidl supermarkert when we went to Porec for the day. There is also Lidl and Aldi at Pazin which is about 30 minutes drive from the Villa. Whilst we fully enjoyed our trip there are some pointers for others. The villa is quite remote and the terrain is undulating. It's a good 40 minute walk to Motovun and then a very steep walk up to the town. Toni's agrotourism is the only place to eat out which is within reasonable walking distance - about 15/20 minutes up hill (down coming home!). You need torches at night as there are no street lights. I recommend walking shoes!
