The Porec area sits on the western coast of the Istrian Peninsula in Croatia.

Well placed (in a peaceful neighbourhood), it has almost everything you need to spend a relaxing stay for holidays. Thanks to the pool and the garden, you even don't need to go to the sea (our kids prefered to stay at the house!). The owner is very polite and nice. He answered quickly and thoroughly to all our questions! Furthermore, our early arrival and late leaving wasn't any problem for him!

At that time the whole Istria region was yet to welcome seasonal tourists. Therefore the atmosphere was still very calm. The villa was like a fairytale gem. Big enough to offer comfortable for our friends we invited. It proofed to be a proper holiday place. One of the great thing was the fact was no matter how hot outdoors, inside the temperature was always cool. All facilities are taken care for. Kitchen is equiped to a great standard. The garden is muck bigger that the photos show with lovely fresh herbs growing there. The place can be some sort of party zone, with very smarty installed hi-fi system which provides great sound at the pool area. We spent our evenings at the built-in barbeque and the large dinning table. Is was a romantic and relaxing as it gets. We will back soon.
