A perfect vacation in Istria

  • 5 of 5

The house was comfortable and the seven of us enjoyed staying there immensely. Weather was perfect and we had a great time exploring Istria for the week. There is only one thing which would make the house perfect and that is more light in the kitchen. Otherwise a perfect vacation home!

Perfect location for exploring Croatia

  • 5 of 5

Excellent property for exploring Northern Croatia. Nicely decorated inside, good facilities, plenty of space for my family of 6, however it can sleep 8 people easily. Has a BBQ area, good swimming pool with sunloungers. The property owner Toni was very helpful. Many villages and attractions within 40-60 minutes drive. I would not recommend driving from Venice airport as the Croatian border crossing took 3 hours to cross. Also, would be useful if the property had a name and sign on the gate which would be useful when finding the property. Overall, excellent property for exploring Croatia.

Besser als die Fotos zu erwarten glauben

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine Woche in der Villa Gimino, die Villa war sehr sauber und der Pool/Garten toll. Im absperrbaren Grundstück gibt es sogar auf der hinteren Seite des Hauses die Möglichkeit innerhalb des Grundstück mehrere Autos zu parken.

Einziger Minuspunkt: die Klimaanlage in den oberen drei Schlafräumen funktioniert immer nur wenige Minuten, dann muss diese neu eingeschaltet werden(als wie wenn ein Timer hinterlegt wäre) in Wohnzimmer/Küche haben die Klimaanlage dagegen einwandfrei funktioniert

Es gibt nur zwei Nachbarhäuser, bei dem einen haben wir so gut wie nie jemanden gesehen, bei demanderen Nachbarhaus waren zwei Familien mit Kindern, die man so gut wie nicht gehört.
