About Ines Zivkovic

I live in Turin, Italy, and as any of you, I love travelling, sightseeing, knowing what magical and different each place has to offer. I'm an architect and almost ten years ago we've bought and old stone house in Istria and started works on it respecting a nature and traditional constructing methods. And since 2010 I've created with lot curiosity my own company Ecovillas for renting our relaxing property.

I love welcome “unknown” people, with various experiences and expectations about our beautifull Istrian area, and share with them some of my experience living there.If you don’t know Istria, or already know, believe that there is much still to be discovered, a fantastic penninsula that will surprise you.

I’ll be there, for welcoming you always during summer, somethimes during year. If I'm not there my parents will welcome you with enthusiasm. I hope you love Istria as I love, and make good memories of your holidays.

Villa Medola

  • 5 of 5

These two newly renovated houses are located in the small hamlet of Kacana about three miles east of Vodnjan and are the perfect holiday destination for two families with children. The villas are fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable holiday and the owners´ sense of style and taste shines through in almost every corner. In this case you can really trust the description and the photos on the internet. Indeed, in reality the whole site looks even better than in the virtual presentation. Ines and her husband are very service-minded and do everything to make your stay a most pleasant one.

We were there with 5 adults and 4 children, which was just the right number of people. With more people it might get rather crowded in the fridge:

In Vodjan we can recommend the restaurant called Vodnjanka, which offers Istrian food at reasonable prices.

The best beach we found was at Duga uvala which a 20 minutes driva away.

To sum it up: We had a great holiday at a perfect location.

Thank you, Ines

Hertfordshire, England

April 2011 in the Villa Mendola

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal rental Villa (actually 2 villas separated by a pool) for a large family or 2/3 families on holiday together. My family comprised 6 adults and 3 teenage children The advertised description of the villa was accurate and in reality exceeded our expectations. Very, very spacious, clean and also very homely with many personal touches. The owner Ines and her parents are extremely nice and pleasant, helpful people

The house is remotely located therefore a car is essential. There are many places to visit in Istria and everywhere is no great diatance with minimum traffic. Shopping is easy in nearby Vodnjan which is also pleasant to visit.

We stayed for just 1 week and enjoyed visits to Pula, Medulin, Fazana, Rovinj, Labin, Rabac and Brijuni Island plus other coastal areas.

summer of 2010 in Coratia

  • 4 of 5

It was a pleasure to stay at this new villa. The rooms were modern and provided a great athmosphere. The pool is a good refreshment on hot days, but not really long enough to have a good swim. The covered area between both houses provides shade for lunch or a long evening dinner.

It's a twenty minutes drive to Pula and only five minutes to the next supermarket. Since the house was new, there were some minor finished details that had not yet been completed. Ines and her husband were very responsive to any request and the baker from next door deliveres great fresh bread or sweet delights.

We would certainly consider to rent the villa again in the future.

Entspannung und Erholung pur

  • 5 of 5

Die Angaben des Inserrates sind vollkommen korrekt. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig und doch kommt man über kurze Wege überall hin.

Das Haus ist sehr sauber und gepflegt.

Durch die Vermieterin haben wir viele Tips bekommen zum baden gehen und wo man gut Fisch und Muscheln essen kann.

Von hier kann man gut zur Ost- und auch Westküste fahren.

Wir waren 4 Paare und würden jeder Zeit dieses Haus wieder buchen.

Vielen Dank für wunderschöne Wochen in Kroatien.

Fantastic stay at beautiful Villa Mendola!

  • 5 of 5

We had a absolutely fantastic stay at beautiful villa Mendola and could highly recomend it! Three familys with six small children enjoyed the house for one week in spring 2013. While the children had a good time playing in the pool, adults enjoyed the sun and the ralaxing ambience! The rooms vere beautiful and beds comfortable. You can tell the friendly owner Ines is an architecit!

We hade good weather during our stay and were able to sit outside all meals. If not the table inside might have been to small to suit our group.

We hade a relaxing holiday but the location also made it possible for us to explore Rovinj, Facana, Pula and the rocky beaches at the coast. Istria really has a lot to offer!

Hope one day to come back!

Sehr schöne Zeit

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten zusammen mit Freunden das Haus für 14 Tage über Pfingsten gebucht und haben dort wunderschöne Tage verbracht.

Das Haus ist am Anfang nicht so leicht zu finden, da sehr verseteckt (koordinaten nutzen und in googel vorher anschauen :-)

Die beiden Häuser sind wunderschön ausgestattet - durch die Aufteilung kann man eigentlich von 3 Abgeschlossenen Woneinheiten sprechen. - was gerade gut ist, wenn mann mit befreundeten Familien unterweghs ist. Der Bäcker liefert jeden morgen die Backwaren die Abends bis 20:00 auf einem Bestellzettel am Gartentor hängen.Einkaufen in Vodnjan ist sehr gut möglich. Da wir mit Kindern unterwegs waren haben wir die kurzen Fahrzeit zu allen Zielen in Istrien genossen. Auch ein Tagesausflug nach Venedig haben wir gemacht (besser vorher im Internet buchen gibt 20 % Rabatt auf das Ticket) - Strand in Medulin (Sand) ist Quallen frei weil eine Lagune schön für Kinder- Fazana ist der Strand auch schön aber Quallen und Steine.
