Keith and Sonja embarked on letting apartments to tourists in summer 2013 and are looking forward to our first season of guests. We have been married 16 years and live in the house with our 3 friendly dogs. Keith is English and Sonja is of Croatian nationality.

Sonja and Keith purchased this apartment in 2003

This property offers spacious accommodation and grounds with garden facilities i.e. grill and comfortable furniture for you to relax and enjoy your stay with us. It is not just the summer time which is beautiful here in Istria. Quite often you can sunbathe on the veranda in February and the temperature can reach up to 26 degrees centigrade.

In the springtime, March and April, Istria is a beautiful place to be when the flowers blossom and the birds are nesting in the thicket. There is plenty of wildlife in the countryside area.

You may be sitting in the garden as evening falls and a beautiful white Owl may silently glide over the garden in search of its supper. During the daytime you may look up to the sky and see large birds of prey such as Buzzards, and others,circling. And if you are lucky you may be walking through the woods or just along the road between the villages and one of these birds may be sitting quietly in a tree.

At the same time a number of deer may run across the road in front of you close enough to see the whites of their eyes and the speckles on their coats.

The aroma of sea air and pine trees on the beaches or lavander in our garden and a healthy, clean environment all around makes it an ideal combination for a holiday break for all those who are looking for a place to relax and leave the stress of everyday life behind.

Come the summer, May to September ( and often later ) nightingales will serenade you through the night and day and by the sea, under the pine trees, red squirrels will frolic and play for your amusement. No description of the Adriatic coast would be complete without telling visitors about how wonderful the sea itself is. In June the temperature of the sea is 22/23 degrees centigrade and as the season moves on it gets warmer, so bathing is an absolute pleasure. If you decide to snorkel a whole new world of colour will open in front of your eyes. The water is crystal clear up to approximately 20 meters and it is like swimming in an aquarium full of marine life. The clouds of blue and silver neons are fascinating and there are many other large shoals of smaller and larger fish, all of which are harmless.

EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The apartments are in an excellent central location for your exploration of the beautiful and fascinating Croatian peninsula of Istria. The apartments are situated in the suburbs of Porec’, and a short, easy drive to all of the cities and attractions of this region. The apartments are neat, clean, and equipped with all the amenities you would expect, including easy and secure parking. Your hosts, Keith and Sonja, go out of their way to ensure that you enjoy your stay. We recommend visiting Istria, and we strongly recommend these apartments as your “base”.

CAME AS GUESTS - LEFT AS FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
APARTMENT:
The apartment Sonja and Keith have set up is clean, marvelous and fulfilled all our needs with excellence. There is really more than everything. Furthermore we experienced great hospitality: Hints on good restaurants, personal guidance to the most important places like beach and shops, delicious barbecues. We 2+2 (Jutta, Julie, Janis and Karl) from Germany enjoyed the greatest holidays ever. We cannot fit our emotions in words. (10++ stars). UNBIASED RECOMMENDATION.

AREA and ACTIVITIES:
Istria offers a great variety of history combined with beautiful and clean stone beaches (just take the one Keith and Sonja show you), snorkeling will reward you with great underwater views. We recommend to visit Porec at dusk, Rovinj for a day trip, Vrsar for a boat trip to Limski Kanal (pirate cave is a bad treat), Motovun for a walk around town. With a little more time to cover the distance: Pula showcases the great amphitheater - but nothing more. (4 stars)

FOOD:
Most places offer Pizza (extra large, fits the largest hunger, about 50 Kuna) as a reminder of Istrias Italian past. We tried Nono (Porec, great), Dali (Porec, quite good), Birikin (right next door, still regular). The other local option are fish platters (from 100 Kuno per person). Our recommendation: Tri Kantuna (Tar, mixed grill as large and delicious as the fish platter), also good Monte Carlo (Vrsar). (5 stars)

PEOPLE and LANGUAGE:
Istrian people are mostly friendly, also to children! German brings you everywhere, also Italian, English might not be enough. (4 stars)

RUHE UND ERHOLUNG IN NOVA VAS

  • 5 of 5
Wir waren 12 Tage mit vier Personen in der Ferienwohnung zu Gast und es hat uns an nichts gemangelt. Wir wurden sehr freundlich aufgenommen und die Vermieter standen immer für alle Fragen und Wünsche zur Verfügung. Die sehr saubere Wohnung war bestens ausgestattet und ist überaus empfehlenswert. Keith zeigte uns Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Kaufland, Lidl), Gaststätten und wunderschöne Badebuchten. Alles war bequem mit dem Auto in 10 Minuten erreichbar. Der gepflegte Garten mit schattiger Terrasse lud zum Verweilen oder Grillen ein. Wer Entspannung und Erholung sucht, ist bei Sonja und Keith bestens aufgehoben.

Our house is located in the peaceful village of Nova Vas, set in its own spacious grounds.

Locally there is a popular restaurant, a small bar and a catholic church. The town of Porec is 10 minutes away by car with shops, tourist attractions like the famous Basilica Euphrasia dating back to before Roman times, the marina, small aquarium, cinema, casinos, art galleries and plenty of bars, cafes, restaurants and nightlife.

Further afield are the popular tourist attraction towns of Vrsar, Rovinj, Umag, Motovun and Pula, all with interesting places to go and things to see. Further still is Opatija, known as the little Paris of Istria because of its stylish architecture.

There are plenty of beach destinations to choose from, the directions for which we can provide.

We can also recommend restaurants to go to and other places of interest to visit in the towns mentioned above. If you access the Porec tourist information web site, there is a video which shows Porec and the surrounding area,which is well worth viewing.
