Zeer rustig gelegen met prachtig zicht op het stadje Motovun. Ideaal om te verblijven met twee gezinnen. Een auto is wel noodzakelijk want de dichtstbijzijnde grote supermarkt is 30 min rijden. Enig minpuntje is de vaatwasser die niet goed werkt 😜. Zorg ook voor goede muggenzalf... Als je wijn wil proeven zeker langs gaan bij de buren "fakin". Het is veel goedkoper om rechtstreeks bij hen te kopen ipv in Motovun. We willen zeker nog eens terugkomen !!! 😎

Mention spéciale pour la suite parentale avec sdb et terrasse avec petite table et chaises, vue bucolique avec la mer au loin. La localisation n'est pas mal mais il faut toujours utiliser la voiture, rien dans les environs (min. 10-15 ' pour le premier magasin, resto...). Bonnes informations de la part du loueur (thanks Nick) et simplicité des contacts /formalités minimales. On y retournerait volontiers
