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.

The villa is well equipped, has a good kitchen - essential for us! , comfortable bed & sitting area. Access to a washing machine was excellent - a must for us as we had been travelling for some weeks. Nicky even volunteered to hang our washing out for us - allowing us to go out exploring . 2 personal garden siting areas outside the villa allow for sun or shade - whatever suits. To enjoy an evening swim in the lovely pool was an added bonus after a day of sightseeing. Our hosts Nicky & Phil did everything to make us feel welcome & relaxed. The whole garden has been well planned to allow both owners & guests to enjoy their own privacy & spaces. A car is essential in this location to allow access to Porec & local areas. Lots of maps & information provided to allow you to explore the areas.
