Stayed for a week with my family in early August. The villa was the perfect location - short hop to the coast or mountain towns by car, but in a peaceful rural location with no noise to interrupt sleep. The villa itself is stunning, beautifully constructed, spacious, and stylish. You can see the sea from the upper windows and balcony, we swam multiple times per day, water warm enough to swim 24 hours a day. Favourite: breakfast outside at the shaded terrace, with fresh rolls from the mini market five steps away, and figs from the tree in the garden. Highest recommendation!
Kovaci was perfect for our party of four adults and six teenagers. The two separate cottages provided privacy for the two families when needed although most of the time we all sat around the large dining table in the farmhouse kitchen or sprawled around the tables outside under the shade of the umbrellas! For our six teens (aged between 14 and 19) the WiFi was essential and after initial difficulties obtaining signal in the barn (we had to move the router upstairs) they declared the signal strength to be good! We all loved the pool, which is a good size for playing or swimming, but would have liked to have used it after dark. Unfortunately the pool light was broken and awaiting a replacement bulb and the lights around the pool were not working. The property is situated within a two minute walk of a very handy shop - we can recommend the croissants (fresh every morning but get there early!) and the butchers. The staff were friendly and helpful. There are several restaurants within walking distance and we loved Zardin with it’s great food and welcoming atmosphere. Istria itself is beautiful, the scenery is stunning and there are endless things to do from swimming in the sea to jumping off cliffs into pools, exploring the coastal towns and villages to hurtling around karting tracks, water parks to caves, churches to dolphins, there really is something for every age and every interest! We can’t wait to return! The owner Nicky was very easy to contact before our trip and answered all our queries incredibly quickly and once in Kovaci Elbina was friendly and very helpful! All in all a wonderful holiday - our teens declared it “ the best holiday ever” and you can’t get better than that!!
