Sleeping 8 persons very comfortably and located on top of a hill in the quaint village of Bacva, approx 10km from Porec, this villa offers a peaceful retreat from the speed of 21st century life and yet is very well positioned as a base from which to visit all the delights that Istria has to offer.

Fantastischer Urlaub in Casa Bacva
Bewohnt wurde das Haus von zwei Familien und 3 Hunden. Es ist wie auf den Bilder gezeigt. Teilweise sogar besser! Sehr positiv war auch der am ersten Morgen entdeckte Meerblick. Der Service bei defekten Sachen war sehr schnell und gut. (Bei uns war lediglich ein Wasser-Boiler defekt)
Wir werden mit großer Wahrscheinlichkeit noch einmal Gäste sein!
Lovely house in autumn
We arrived at the house around the beginning of October 2014 and stayed for three weeks with a 3 year old and a 5 year old.
We were very lucky with the weather which helped with all the outings. We had a good impression of the house at first sight and looks exactly like the pictures if not better! Caroline was very accommodating and showed us around, if lights were broken or we required anything that was missing she would organize quickly. The view is immaculate! We loved watching the sunsets. It is a very nice and quiet environment, which is great if you want to retreat to peace after a busy outing. The kids enjoyed themselves in the swimming pool so spending a day at the house was a bless. The local village restaurant Milena is also a great choice when you don't feel like cooking. The house is equipped with three bedrooms which easily accommodate 6 people. It is a nice set up for a family of 4 plus parents or friends.It is located a few min from Visjnan (which has a very good butcher) and 10 min from Porec. Would def consider coming back!
Great time for two families
Not for the first time, we enjoyed our holidays in casa Bacva!!!
If you've got no problem with driving about 20 minutes to a wonderful beach (zelena laguna is great) and living in a very small village (maybe 8 houses?), this place might be a good choice. There is a restaurant with a great view when the sun goes down over the sea, just 100 meters away. Another wonderful restaurant is in villa visnijan (called borgonja!), 5 minutes by car. The house, the garden and pool is fantastic. You're looking right over the vineyard. The place ist quiet and you've got no problems with any neighbours if your children are not quiet ;-)
As Schwarzenegger said: "We will be back!"
A lovely house in a lovely setting
The house is lovely and comfortable, and the grounds and view are stunning. The village of Bacva is friendly with a great resturant is is well situated for trips thoughout Istria. The Wifi at the house is not reliable, signals are stronger at night than during the day. We had an issue with security at the house during our stay.
Many thanks for taking the time to review your holiday at Casa Bacva. We’re pleased that you liked the house and agree that the view over the olive groves and vineyards as the sun is setting is pretty special. Thank you for your patience with the GSM connected internet. We are hoping that in the next year the telephone company will extend the network to enable us to get full landline internet access. With regards the security issue, it is a sad fact that in a country in which 10 years ago you could happily leave your door wide open and your keys in your car ignition, crime has now started to appear more frequently throughout Croatia and particularly targeting tourists and in major tourist areas. As a result of your experience, we want peace of mind for our guests and are now looking to review security measures at the house, most notably with the installation of an alarm linked to a monitoring service. It was good to meet you on your last day and to know that you had greatly enjoyed your stay at Casa Bacva and in Istria and I hope that the rest of your European trip was as good.
Charming, peaceful and well positioned
We had a really great time at Casa Bacva. The village of Bacva was so peaceful and we spent our mornings exploring Istria and afternoons by the pool. The photos do not do justice to the place. The house was clean and well furnished and the local agent helped us source the best meat for the bbq, the best beaches for the children and the best vineyards for the wine. We spent many evenings at the local Konoba Milena restaurant which is only a couple of minutes walk away and a perfect end to a day. We will definitely be back.
We have been going to Casa Bacva for several years now and have stayed there more than 5 times since 2011.
Casa Bacva is an old restored house with a lovely view over the local vineyards located at the beginning of a quiet little village.
Everything is as on the photos. The big plus are the giant oak trees that provide shade during hot sunny days.
The bedroom overlooking the pool is truly magnificent –it's wonderfully restored, has a beautiful view and there is even a small balcony.
All in all, the house has that certain 'feel' of an old Istrian authentic house which is very appealing and truly represents an escape from our normal every-day lives.
We love coming to Casa Bacva and keep returning because there are peace and quiet on one hand but also good connections to cities like Višnjan and Poreč on the other and the highway is quite near (though you never hear it).
We would also like to compliment Casa Bacva's manager Caroline, who has been always ready to provide any kind of assistance during all our visits making all our stays comfortable and care-free.
Bacva is a quaint little village comprising +/- 9 families and the famous Konoba Milena restaurant. In the middle of the village is a play area for the little ones and a gorgeous view toward the sea. On a clear day you can see the Alps. Set amidst rolling vineyards inviting you for a relaxing stroll, Bacva is also situated on a popular cycling route and you'll come across many cyclists enjoying nature. Situated just 10km from the coast, Bacva is ideally positioned for a relaxing holiday in the countryside but close enough to enjoy the historic town of Porec as well as being great base from which to enjoy all the delights that Istria has to offer.
Other Activities: Go-karting, waterpark
