Croatian utopia

  • 5 of 5

On arriving at the villa we were greeted by Vesna and Egidio, the owners of villa diora. Myself, my wife and our two children were welcomed by name. That is the first thing you will notice, the extraordinary attention to detail. From booking the villa to the day we were leaving, Vesna and Egidio were simply wonderful. The loveliest people you could hope to meet. There warmth and attention they showed us is reflected in the villa. The bedrooms are individually different but all very comfortable. The living room is quite extraordinary with its large window looking over the village. The outside areas are way beyond most people's imagination, it's just beautiful. The spa room is heaven and the games room is a great place to relax with family. If you need anything, the chances are you go looking for it and you'll find what you want in a drawer. The villa has absolutely everything you need for a fantastic holiday and it's all done with luxury and comfort in mind. So looking forward to going back

5 * istria

  • 5 of 5

We were not disappointed at all , the villa was as good as the description and this, added to the wonderful welcome we received from Vesna and Egidio made us relax immediately into holiday mode.

With ages between 5 - 69 there was something for all of us in the villa from the saltwater pool, garden, games room and relaxation suite ! ( not to mention the second kitchen with some nice wine )

Our hosts local knowledge, as well as of wider Istria, provided us with local produce and recommended restaurants.

The only sad note was that we were only at Villa Diora for a week!

We hope to return and would thoroughly recommend Villa Diora

A fine example of the care attention of its owners

Just Restless and so charming

  • 5 of 5

Vesna & Egidio just welcome as friends or even familly.

We were 2 famillies and felt so charmed by the house.

Well situated in a charming village, nearby all necessary shops and site.

Housse is so well equiped, for adults and kids, that owners overpass clients needs.

The terrasse and swiming pool get you on hoilday as soon as you walk in.

Thank you for that absolute 0 fault stay in your wonderfull housse.

Stunning property, fantastic hospitality

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday began with such a wonderful welcome from Vesna and Egidio.We have never before received such warm hospitality and kindness from our holiday hosts.

The villa itself is stunning, with the highest quality fixtures and furnishings. Our son loved the huge games room. Vesna and Egidio have designed and built this villa with such attention to detail not usually apparent in a holiday rental property. The outside is glorious too. Plenty of places to sit and enjoy the wonderful views over the surrounding countryside. The terrace is a fantastic place to relax and we were doubly thrilled to be able to sit and listen to cricket on the radio via the villa WiFi. The saltwater pool is just lovely, large enough for a good swim and no nasty chlorine.

this was our first time in Istria and we really loved it. There is a definite Tuscan feel to the beautiful landscape. there are plenty of restaurants offering both great quality and value.

Vesna and Egidio are always on hand for help and advice and genuinely want to make sure that their guests have a fantastic holiday experience in Istria. We can definitely say that they succeeded and would highly recommend Villa Diora. In fact we are returning to this wonderful place next year!

Traumhafter Familienurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Liebe Urlaubssuchende,

den Urlaub in der Villa Diora kann man nur empfehlen! Hier fehlt es an nichts! Die Vermieter Vesna und Egidio sind wahnsinnig zuvorkommend und nett. Der so herzliche Empfang hat uns nach der langen Anreise direkt ankommen lassen. Auch Zwischendurch haben die beiden uns immer wieder umsorgt und für uns gebacken. Natürlich hatten wir trotzdem absolute Privatsphäre.

Gefehlt hat es auch im Anwesen an nichts. Alles ist topp ausgestattet! Alle Zimmer mit Flat-Sat-TV, Klimaanlage, Moskitonetzen und traumhaft bequemen Betten.

Die Ausstattung der Küche war ebenfalls hervorragend. Um den Tag zu gestalten war alles da: super sauberer Pool, Sauna, Dampfbad, Tischkicker, Dart, Kinderspielplatz, Volleyballnetz...

Auch unser 3-jähriger Sohn war stets beschäftigt.

Rückzugsorte gab es ebenfalls genügend, wenn man in einer größeren Gruppe den Urlaub verbringt und mal seine Ruhe möchte.

Im Ort konnte man im Mini-Markt alle notwendigen Kleinigkeiten kaufen, auch ein großer Supermarkt war nur 10 Minuten Fahrt entfernt.

In der Umgebung gab es genügend Restaurants. Auch eine Köchin haben wir uns einmal bestellt, die hervorragend war (zu empfehlen).

Zum Meer sind es ca. 30 Minuten, die gut zu fahren sind. Auch in der Umgebung gibt es jede Menge Dinge zu erleben (Markt, Jet-Ski, Dinopark, Outdoor Go-Kart usw.).

Alles in allem wirklich sehr zu empfehlen!!!

Sehr schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten zu zehnt eine wunderschöne Woche in der Villa. Es hat an nichts gefehlt, alles war top. Die Gastgeber waren unglaublich freundlich und zuvorkommend. Wir fühlten uns rundum gut versorgt.

Die Bilder sind schön, aber in der Realität ist das Haus noch schöner. Gerne kommen wir wieder.

Danke Vesna und Egidio für einen unvergesslichen Urlaub
