  • 4 of 5

We stayed with 16 persons in Villa Gigi for two weeks in July 2017. The location has a amazing view into the valley behind the villa. Mr. Voltic (Gigi) handle everything very obliging and friendly. He manage what ever you want to eat and drink. Having a breakfast (4 EUR) and a very delicious dinner (8-9 EUR) is absolutely no issue. We were in the lucky situation to have nice weather the whole time. We had all meals outside and have enjoyed the great view and the silence after visiting e.g. Porec.

The bath rooms, need from our point of view, a refurbishment. Some of us have used e.g. the shower at the pool.

Two day prior to our departure we had up to six scorpions in different bed rooms. Since this time the carefree sleeping was not that easy.

Overall we can summarize our vacation as a great success and we can recommend the location. (Markus - Germany)

  • 4 of 5

Great food and very nice outside area! Very happy with the service. More then enough space for 17 people. Lovely view in a small village.

On the negative side - the pool was a little small when you have 9 children that loves bathing. And the church bells was a little bit anoying. According to our teenager the wifi coverage was not good enough.

  • 5 of 5

Three families from opposite ends of the world met here for a week at Villa Gigi and it was amazing. The villa is exceptionally well set up and our group of 14 (6 adults , 8 children ) had loads of room. Everything from the outdoor facitilities - pool, volleyball, swings , large eating area - to the well maintained rooms, were excellent. And Doriano cooked beautiful meals for us each night from local produce , we couldn't have asked for better service ! Inside we had a fully equipped bar , large kitchen, coffee machine ,and local wines. Tinjan is a quiet little town ,and very well located . I can recommend Villa Gigi very highly and I hope that one day we will be able to return . Andrew (Australia)

  • 2 of 5

Very rustic. Scorpions seen in rooms. Power went out for four hours one evening. The washing machine required manual attention with each cycle. There is no clothes dryer and the weather was very humid and or rainy so everything was damp including our bed sheets. Four out of the 7 bathrooms the shower leaked through the ceiling below causing major puddles and even more dampness in house.

The positives were the beautiful view out the back of the house and the meals prepared by Mr Doriano.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. At the time when you were in the villa, there were above average rainfalls and bad weather in the whole region. This was the reason for power shortages and this is something that cannot be influenced on. For the same reasons there were leakages in the bathrooms. Usually, in normal weather conditions this never would have happened. We believe that you needed a dryer under these conditions, but a dryer is not one of the features on Villa Gigi´s home page. Thank you for your review. We forwarded everything to the owner, who decided to fix all of the mentioned problems.

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Gruppe von 11 Personen und hatten viel Platz.

Herr Voltic war außerordentlich freundlich und hilfsbereit.

Am Anreisetag und am Freitag verwöhnte er uns mit einem fantastischen Abendessen mit Fisch und anderen Meeresfrüchten.

Bsonder genossen wir das Biier und den Wein vom Fass.

Leider hatten wir kein so gutes Wetter - viel Regen und es war kalt.

Gerne werden wir wiederkommen ! Vielen Dank für die trotzdem tolle Woche.
