Heaven in Croatia!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the best place we’ve ever stayed. It’s a piece of heaven in the Croatian Istrian countryside. We travelled with our baby son and the set up was ideal with crib, high chair, toys and his own bedroom. The kitchen was fully equipped for a long stay and for grilling outside. The villa is very clean and beautifully finished inside and out. We loved relaxing on the porch and by the pool every day, looking over the country and watching sunsets. The hostess is the most wonderful woman, who kept in regular touch to ensure our stay was perfect. I can’t recommend the villa enough to a traveling couple or family looking to explore istria and also have relaxing holiday. We are already planning when we can return!

Fantastic, secluded, peaceful and totally perfect.

  • 5 of 5

Well what can I say, by far the best villa we have ever stayed in.

The owners father in law was a superb host and nothing was too much trouble, he even gave us some of his homemade spirits which were potent and very special indeed.

We left our playing cards out on the terrace overnight and they blew into the extensive grounds, he picked them all up prior to us waking in the morning, over and above any expectations of any host. We travelled to Croatia as a group of four friends on two sport touring motorcycles and although the track to the villa was a little challenging we managed not to drop the bikes, so you should have no issues whatsoever with a car.

We were a little gutted when we contacted another couple (who we normally travel with) to see if they wished to travel in 2016 back to Croatia, although we were happy they would indeed join us this meant that we couldn't consider returning to Villa Valmont as it can only cater for four adults, we would have been more than happy to return.

In all a fantastic destination and wonderful service, would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. Thanks so much, we hope you enjoyed our gift of English Gin as a thank you for your gift to us.

Kind regards,

Dave, Fran, Gazz and Rachel

Owner's Response: Al dough my husband and I are still out of the Croatia,we still keep in close touch with my husband's father/my father in -law Pjero!He is doing his best for our guest to feel as welcomed and comfortable as possible. Seeing these great reviews,I see we have made a great choice to leave our guests in his hands! I am writing on his behalf. Mr. Dave, Fran, Gazz and Rachel were great guests and fun to be around! My father in-law really,really enjoyed having them stay. Unfortunately our Villa is only for 4+1,so Mr. Dave and his friends might not return in the future to Villa Valmont! But once they return to Croatia and stay nearby! Mr. Dave and his friends will be more than welcome to drop in for quick visit.My father in-law will be very happy to see them.

Peaceful and tucked away.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Villa Valmont for a duration of 10 days. We really enjoyed our time in Croatia and Villa Valmont was ideal for a perfect getaway. Villa Valmont is set away from Labin Town, you will definitely need transport for the Villa and even off road would be to an advantage because the road leading up to the Villa is a little rocky in places.

The Villa was well equipped and very clean, we had a lovely welcome from the owners Father who was a lovely man. The Villa has everything needed, I would suggest that if you like listening to some music at night then to take your own device. Villa has WIFI which is excellent and works well. A beautiful Villa and surrounding grounds, definitely no faults.

If you get a chance then make a visit to Ravinj, it's such a beautiful Town and great if you want to purchase some gifts. It's not too far a drive from the Villa, I would say around 45 mins. Labin old Town is lovely, and café vello is nice, especially if you like cappuccino which is where we went almost daily to have one.

Croatia is stunning and such a clean Country, I would definitely recommend the Villa and Croatia to anymore. Guests at Villa Valmont are made to feel very welcome and we would definitely come back.

A peaceful idyll

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely week staying at Villa Valmont. The house is fantastic! It had everything we needed (wi-fi, barbecue, washing machine)...and more (we found ourselves using the wine cooler, olive oil drizzler and, inflatable rubber ring!). We loved the mezzanine bedroom and the traditional style kitchen. The pool was such a luxury, and it was nothing less than beautiful watching the little birds dip in. The peace and quiet was exactly what we went to the villa for and we found ourselves almost instantly calmed. By the end of the week we were totally relaxed. Helped so much by the non-stop sunshine and hot hot weather.

And let's not forget the beautiful surroundings of Istria. We did the short hike from Labin to Rabac. Mainly downhill this way but a more daunting uphill on the return - so we didn't do it! And caught the regular bus back instead. Cafe Velo was a great restaurant in Labin. We bought fresh fish at the daily market and we eventually found the best supermarket, Plodine, with lots of fresh meat and cheeses.

We also went to Plitvice Lake National Park. A bit too far for a day trip really (we didn't realise this at first) but the most stunning national park I have ever been to, and we drove through some lovely countryside on route.

And rent a boat from Rabac. That was fun.

I feel like I should give the most praise in this review to the wonderful welcome we received on arrival from the very friendly and helpful Katarina, who also came to see us before we left to see if everything had been ok - so nice. And Petar for helping me when I left some belongings behind - make sure you check the wardrobe when you leave :) Thank you both so much.

Beautiful, stunning, well equipped villa.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fabulous week in the Villa Valmont as part of our honeymoon during August. It was truly a special place. I can honestly say it was the best self catered accommodation I have ever stayed in. Nothing is too much for the owner, Katarina, who makes you feel welcome and comfortable in this home-away-from-home. The villa is spotlessly clean with everything you could wish for. As my husband is a keen chef and one of the reasons we chose Istria was for the amazing food and drink available in the region we were pleasantly surprised to find a well equipped kitchen with knives you could actually slice with, a whole selection of dish cloths, and a fully functioning dish washer!

The vllla is a 15 min drive from Labin with it's daily market of fresh fish, meat and vegetables. For all other supplies there are two large supermarkets in town. If you want a break from cooking Labin old town has a couple of beautiful restaurants serving the legendary Istrian truffles.

We went on a number of day trips throughout Istria and the villa is suitably located to reach a number of beaches, larger towns and some beautiful hill-top vlllages. You have it all on your door-step but you definitely need a car to enjoy it all.

The only problem is we didn't want to leave but we do definitely plan to return in the future as we have some fantastic memories or our week in Villa Valmont.

Five Star Croatian Villa

  • 5 of 5

We all loved the week we spent at Villa Valmont. The location is stunning, very tranquil away-from-it feel yet you can be in Labin for drinks or shopping in 15 minutes.

The Villa was spotlessly clean and there was a real attention to detail so that the villa provides all you need for a relaxing holiday and more. Very high decorative order and comfortable beds!

Katarina was a superb host and if we needed anything she was always available to assist and is friendly and helpful. She sweetly organised a birthday cake for our son's birthday! Communication during the booking process and directions to the villa were great.

The rooms are airy and cool for sleeping in during mid-summer. The outdoors area is very well planned out with the bbq area/seating as well as the covered table/chairs and the loungers by the pool. We ate outside most of the time as the views are lovely.

Our children loved the pool and the space around the villa as well as the split-level accommodation. We loved the unspoilt peace of the area that the villa has.

The local area is really interesting to explore. I would have no hesitation in recommending this villa which is definitely 5 stars! Thanks so much for everything Katarina. We had a superb time in Istria!
