Restaurants available within 10mins drive plus only 25mins from Porec, Vrsar, & Rovinj on the coast. Goran, the owner, kept us informed of where to eat & drink locally as he clearly knows the area, and any other questions we had all the time from our booking up to our arrival and after we came home. We would highly recommend this for a peaceful break in the sun.

Facilities were perfect for us, everything worked, was clean and in excellent condition. A couple of suggestions: Driving instructions from airport – exit for Baderna is 302 not 303. Recommendations for guest information: Include number 61 & postcode 52440 in the villa address. Include the amount of tourist tax that needs to be paid, and to have enough cash to pay on arrival if the agent is meeting you. Include some recycling info – its free money! Kaufland supermarket in Porec will recycle glass, whole plastic bottles and cans (don't crush them). At the front of the supermarket to the right there is a small building where you take your recycling and get a refund ticket. The amount of refund is indicated on the bottle/can label – normally 0.5 Kuna. You take your refund ticket to customer services and they give you the cash back. Local beer bottles can be returned at place of purchase for 1 Kuna each but you must keep your receipt and show it at the till.
