Enjoyable 5 day stay

4 of 5
Went for a 5 day break with my husband, 2 kids (5 & 2), and 3 in-laws. Beds clean and comfy. Bathrooms and kitchen clean and functional. Family area comfortable and seated us all. We dined on the veranda when weather permitted but didn't use the pool so can't comment on it. Took day trips to Porec to go to Venice and had good meals in local restaurants some days. Kids playground is very basic but walkable from the house. Easy to book, easy to find property with google maps, and overall an easygoing holiday.

A house filled with care

5 of 5
We had wonderful sunshine and the stone house is stunning. 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.
