Lovely setting - great villa, and pool.

5 of 5
The villa was very welcoming, clean and well equipped as so were the grounds with games, pool inflatables and table tennis. The pool was a good size with plenty of natural shade. The property manager, Dusko and his wife are a lovely couple and kept the pool very clean and the grounds tidy but didn't intrude on your stay. Goran responds quickly to all email correspondence and is very helpful. Croatia is a pretty country and lots to see such as towns like Ravinj and Porec are not too far away (30 mins). We also had a day trip to Venice. There are plenty of restaurants to visit approx 15 -20 mins drive such as Viking at Limski Kanal and roadside rotisseries serving suckling pig and lamb. Plenty of seafood available and all restaurants are very reasonably priced. Istria coast is pretty with friendly people.

Great location and lovely villa

5 of 5
All the family had a superb vacation - the villa was perfect with a great pool and lovely views over meadow, small olive grove and vineyard to the wooded hills beyond. 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.
