About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, 6 persons, sauna, covered barbecue, pool

Bokordici is a small, peaceful village near Svetvincenat (3.5 km), in the centre of the southern part of Istria, half way between Pazin and Pula, a 20-minute drive up to the Adriatic coast.

Florinda is charming traditional stone house, transformed to meet the requirements of modern guests. It is located in the middle of a small village, its privacy protected with traditional high stone walls and old trees. The house is equipped with air-conditioning, video, stereo system, washing machine, dishwasher, satellite televisionand and Wi-Fi .

Florinda's 3 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms accomodate comfortably 6 persons. On the ground floor there is a fully fitted kitchen with dining room, living room with piano, television, radio and video recorder, toilet, a bedroom with double bed and en suite bath. On the first floor there are two bedrooms, one with bathtub and wash basin, the other with bathroom and shower.

The courtyard of the house offers its guests a swimming pool (9 x 4.5 m), spacious covered grill&dining area with outdoor sink. There are also a sauna, outdoor shower and toilet.

Village Bokordici is an ideal starting point for trips to the Istrian inland and sea side attractions on the west, south and east coasts of Istrian peninsula, in each direction about 25-30 km to the nearest beach: on San Polo near Bale to the west, Pula Veruda and Medulin to the south or Krnica and Duga Uvala on the east coast. For adventurous trips there are ferries from Brestova to Cres Island and catamaran from Pula to Zadar (with stops on the islands of Losinj and Susak). The guests can enjoy Bokordici with its surroundings with horseback riding, cycling and hiking, or choose one of the nearby coastal places for diving, sailing and windsurfing. Overview of some attractive beaches in Istria:

Kamenjak: On top of the Istrian peninsula and south of Pula is an untouched coil of rocky beaches and meadows. But be aware of currents! Ideal for windsurfing and snorkelling.

Premantura peninsula, about 10 km from Pula with sandy beach of Debeljak.

Red Island (Crveni otok): On the outskirts of Rovinj and easily reachable by the shuttle boat, it is actually two islands connected to each other. The farthest one is a Maskin Island, known for its naturism.

Duga Uvala, is only a few kilometres from the centre of Marcana and 20 km away from the city of Pula. A pebble and sand beach is surrounded by pine trees, which give natural shade.

There is an amazing variety of cultural attractions on offer, e.g.:

Vodnjan: Behind the main altar of the 18th century baroque St. Blasius church are the dried remains of six saints, which have healing properties. Apart from 'Mummies', the church has 380 relics, including the excavated tongue of St. Maria of Egypt.

Rovinj: The old town with the striking St. Euphemia church sparkles with cafés, shops, restaurants, galleries and Venetian monuments. Nearby is the Nature Park Zlatni Rt with hiking trails and small beaches.

Pula: The Roman amphitheatre, Augustus temple and Triumphal Arcg of the Sergei family - Golden Gate are the most popular attractions in Pula. Anyone who wants to feel a touch of Mediterranean life should definitely go to the market place early in the morning and enjoy the abundance and variety of fish, fruit and vegetable stalls.

Pore: More Roman ruins, but the real gem is St. Euphrasius Basilica, a World Heritage Site with its glittering Byzantine mosaics. Lounges, beach bars, discotheques for young visitors.

Motovun: Mountain village with Summer Film Festival, Venetian architecture and spectacular views from the walls. Loved by artists and art-lovers.

Brijuni Islands: This National Park once hosted Tito and his illustrious friends, but I recommend it for the unbelievable beauty of the main island Veli Brijuni and the still, clear water.

Groznjan: Rocky mountain village with breathtaking views, nice cafés and full music. Groznjan hosts Summer Music School and international Jazz Festival.

The perfect family hideaway!

  • 5 of 5

This peaceful and well appointed property gave plenty of space for two families to relax and enjoy the Istrian peninsular. 25 mins from both east and west coast we had the choice of sea or countryside. For sports enthusiasts biking and walking routes abound with the bonus of a good sized well maintained pool at home! The BBQ area was a treat and the whole property easily secured for young children

Die Beschreibung des Hauses stimmt mit dem Online Inserat völlig überein. Es ist alles vorhanden was man für einen perfekten Urlaub braucht. Das Haus und der Pool waren sehr sauber und gepflegt. Besonders gefallen hat uns die Außenküche mit Grill, wo wir jeden Morgen gefrühstückt haben. Wir haben uns rundum wohlgefühlt und können das Haus mit ruhigem Gewissen weiterempfehlen.

Ein schönes Haus, Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 2 Kindern und unserem Hund dort. Sehr ruhig gelegenes Steinhaus mit eigenem großem Pool. Alles Notwendige ist im Haus vorhanden. Das Haus selbst ist sehr geräumig und sehr gepflegt. Sehr angenehm war auch die Air-Condition. Zum Einkaufen muss man ein paar Kilometer fahren, das ist aber in Ordnung.

Wer Erholung sucht ist hier sehr gut aufgehoben.

Wir haben es auf jeden Fall sehr genossen.

Schönes Haus, toller Pool!

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt in der Villa Florinda sehr genossen. Wer es ruhig mag und gerne auch Privacy am Pool hat, ist hier gut aufgehoben. Das Haus ist gut in Stand gehalten, der Pool sehr gepflegt und die Terasse von außen nicht einsehbar. Am Ort selbst gibt es keine Einkaufsmöglichkeiten aber Svetvincenat ist nicht weit. Die Betreuung war gut, hatten im Haus etwas vergessen, das wird uns gerade nachgesandt. Danke an Ana und Daniela!

wunderschöne Oase der Erholung

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine super tolle Zeit in diesem wunderschönen Haus, es hat an nichts gefehlt, alles perfekt gepflegt, das Wetter war bis auf einen Tag top und diesen einen Tag haben wir für einen Ausflug nach Porec genutzt mit anschließendem Saunagang bei uns im Haus. Wir haben uns bestens erholt, wer Urlaub abseits vom Trubel sucht ist hier 100% richtig. Wir kommen wieder, vielen Dank :-)))
