The owner's have added lots of lovely touches, it was home from home, surrounded by lovely countryside for walking and sightseeing, great place to unwind and then eat out, so cheap. Loved it.

We found everything we needed in the house plus a wonderful pool, which we sat by and swam in late into the night. We hired a car for the very short drive to Porec to pick up supplies. Which also meant we could visit some of the other superb dining opportunities in the surrounding villages. We had fantastic weather when we were there but the temptation to go in colder months, because they have a lovely log burner which we never got to use. Will definitely go back again to this hidden Croatian Gem
