In the well-kept garden there is plenty of shade, if needed, and indoor it's cool. The pool is glorious on a hot day, very welcome for an early morning swim and so attractive lit up in the evenings.. If you are looking for peaceful and relaxing holiday this is the place to be. but if you are looking for a more active time there are many attractive places to visit not far away.. Bikes are available for hire, for the more energetic, in the next village of Tar and a selection of beaches are just a shortr bike or car- ride away. There are very friendly and pleasant restaurants within walking distance of the house and a good choice. just a short car ride away is Al Porto, en route to Novigrad, overlooking a beautiful bay with lovely sunsests. . It is our favourite at the moment.. A bit more expensive than the local ones but good. Wise to book if you want a table near the water's edge. If possible a sixth visit next year would be something great to look forward to. .

Goran, his family and staff are sensational hosts, the villa is immaculately presented and the handbook offers everything one needs to know about how the place works and so much local info that it would be impossible to exeprience it all in one trip. We visited the stunning coastal towns of Porec and Rijev which are only 20-30 mins away. We enjoyed relaxing around the refreshing pool, listening to the bird song and we had 4 excellent BBQs using the superb, stone built BBQ and outdoor kitchen area. We couldn't recommend the villa highly enough. We will be visiting again next year!
