Initial concern was that it was too far out of town but it was an easy walk to the furthest part of town so all the excellent restaurants were available to us. Lots of space in the accommodation, lots of garden and an olive grove. Marina was a very accommodating host, the beaches along this coast are wonderful and most are good for snorkelling so we had a really good time.
Although in the vicinity of busy roads, and (advantageously) only a short walk from Pula town centre, the property, with its adjacent olive grove and surrounded by varied and colourful shrubs and flowers, and with fine mountain views, provides relaxation and seclusion. The interior is embellished with Marina’s rich collection of pottery, copper etc, and is more fully provisioned in the practical sense than one usually finds. I cannot speak too highly of Marina’s generosity and helpfulness; she attended to our every need — before we arrived (eg beach towels), and when necessary during our stay. There are lots of useful booklets, pamphlets and maps with information about the surrounding area — scenic spots, shops, restaurants, beaches. The best beaches in our opinion are about 25 minutes’ drive away in Chia, but Nora is much closer, and that also has a wonderful archeological site. The restaurant we liked most is Zia Leunora in Via Trieste — superb fish dishes. We had only three reservations: there aren’t any obvious pathways for rural walking in the immediate vicinity; the second bedroom has only bunk beds for children, though I found it perfectly usable; and mosquitoes were quite prevalent (probably due mainly to its being a September stay, with a lot of rain at night, more than usual someone told us, and nets are set up on all the beds). None of these factors significantly marred a lovely week’s holiday, and we would certainly return for another one.
