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 !!! 😎

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.
