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.

PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!!

  • 5 of 5
An unbelieveable lovely place to stay!!! The modern house, situated in a lovely little village nearby Porec where you will find everything you need to make your holiday a success. The owners, always willing to help you with everyting. They show you the most beautiful places, beaches and the finest restaurants. When you need special help, they will be there for you. Their hospitality, kindness and heartiness will make you believe you are always a special guest.
The appartment is lovely, new, fresh, clean and it contains everything you need. And if not, just tell the owners and you wil get what you need in notime. There is a lovely big garden where you can enjoy the sun and the rest. Also for children the perfect place to stay. Nearby lovely beaches, caves, a playground where they can play football or basketball with the local children. I was there with my two children (12 and 16 years old) and we enjoyed our stay to the utmost. We travelled around the peninsula of Istria and have seen beautiful places and enjoyed the lovely nature. Also a boat trip along the beautiful coast is to be recommended.
If you ever considered a holiday to Croatia, this is the opportunity to do so and to know in advance that it will be a great success!!!

BEAUTIFUL PROPERTY IN A PICTURESQUE VILLAGE.

  • 5 of 5
This immaculate property in a picturesque village outside of Porec is the cleanest I have ever stayed at.
Fresh, new, spacious and a lovely welcome set up of kitchen essentials (even chocolates!).
The welcome extends into the well kept gardens, which include outside dining facilities, a couple of BBQ fireplaces and is totally fenced in. Even car parking is behind locked gates.
If you want local pizza, there is a place quite close and really nice restaurants within a 15 minute drive.
Great value, I think that the gracious hosts; Keith (who is English) and Sonja (Croatian) could easily charge more. Definitely a plus having someone there who knows the Croatian language and customs. They go out of their way to help guests, even so far as leading them to local beaches, supermarkets or places of interest.
Istria is still a gem to enjoy.

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.
