Casa Bella is in a prime location and the apartment itself is very well equipped, with glorious views of the harbour. We were met from our ferry (from Venice - the best way to arrive!) by the owner’s father who took very good care of us, escorting us to the apartment, showing us around and giving a great deal of very useful information about the town, facilities, restaurants and services. The apartment is well equipped with guide books and maps, many of which have been helpfully annotated. Special care was taken to ensure that we could contact the owner quickly if we needed anything or had any questions. The two visitors books covering a number of recent years are testament to how much this family care for their guests!
Rovinj itself is a glorious town with many superb restaurants, activities and sights to explore. We enjoyed walking to the forest area to the south of the town centre and spent a day in the shade, and swimming in the clear sea. We spent another day on Katarina Island which again offers shade or sun and a pebbly beach. Some of us swam from the rocky town beach early in the mornings, which has ladder-style steps from the rocks into the sea - exhilarating!
We ate at Scuba, laVela, Veli Joze and Maestral restaurants, all of which were excellent.
We would highly recommend a holiday in Rovinj, staying at Casa Bella.
The pictures do not do this apartment justice - it is lovely and spotlessly clean. There is everything you need (and more - first aid kit, candles, hand soap, etc.) for a holiday. The balcony must be one of the best in Rovinj - views of the harbour, lots of people watching, boats coming and going, and you can see (and hear) the live music from the square. You get the sun on the balcony from morning until about 3 pm.
Tina was exceptionally nice and very accommodating with our dates .She met us outside the apartment and came personally to collect the key before we left. She was available by telephone if required. We appreciated the wine/water/biscuits she left as a welcome gift for us. We stayed two weeks in this apartment and loved everything about it. We would highly recommend it and hope to return in the future.
Re a reviewer's comment about the Nightclub below the apartment - when we were there this was closed and boarded up, so not sure what is happening with it.
This apartment had everything we needed on our holiday, but just in case you're interested there is no iron/ironing board.
Also note there are about 8 outside steps to front door and then about 12 inside stairs to apartment . There is a window, but no air conditioning in the single bedroom
OVERALL - GREAT
