Authentic and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

You cant beat those thick stone walls for keeping you nice and cool in the heat of the day. The house had all the facilities you need for a comfortable stay, with a secluded and private pool.

Spend an evening in Bale, just 30 mins south and you wont regret it, especially after visiting kamene Priče a delightful bar.

Beautiful well equipped property in great location

  • 5 of 5

First time we had visited Croatia and we were not disappointed. Ryanair flight from Stansted to Pula is just short of two hours. Driving from Pula airport to the property is straight forward and took less than 30 minutes. Weather was a comfortable 30-35 degrees temperature. We quickly got in to a rhythm of enjoying the sun and pool at the property in the morning and then going out in the afternoon. Sveti Lovrec is less than 5 minutes away and great for supplies and a coffee whilst the teenagers were sleeping or enjoying the pool. Local towns are Porec, Rovinj and Vrsar. All worth a visit and extremely beautiful and pleasant to walk around. Enjoyable in the day and at night time. Boat trips are easy to organise and there is plenty of places to eat. Atmosphere everywhere is relaxed and friendly. Lim Fjord is short distance away and the fish at the outside grill is excellent. Overall a fabulous stay and has put Croatia firmly on our favourite list of holiday destinations.

Brilliant all round!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful trip and very much enjoyed staying at the house, thank you. We were very impressed with everything, and the en-suites certainly did help with easing the usual pressure of getting into the bathroom! The garden is lovely and it was so nice to have green grass where some neighbours had brown, crispy lawns!! The weather was mixed but things did brighten up towards the end of the week. The house was extremely comfortable, loads of room and everything was to the highest standards. You couldn't help but to have a wonderful stay!

Germans in Stranici

  • 4 of 5

Thanks for the wonderful stay in Stranici. It's very calm there and great for a relaxed vacation. We staid there with 9 people (5 children 3-13). The house is well equipped and clean. A car is needed. There are 3 bedrooms in the mainhouse and one studio with double bed is bookable additionally. In the living room there would be a double bed also. In case of bad weather it would be a little bit narrow in the kitchen and living room. 5 bathrooms are luxury! We just missed a dish washer - every thing else was available.The pool is nice and big enough for children and refreshment. The owner was very nice and responsive. On site there is an agency which can be contacted in case of problems or questions. The nearest beaches are reachable within 15 min. by car. In 2km is a bakery and a small grocery. Pizzaria in Sveti Lovrec can be recommended. Also the fish restaurants at Limski Fjord. Thanks for the nice stay, we would recommend the house to friends and family.

Ferien auf dem Land

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus liegt in einem kleinen Dorf zwischen Rovinji und Porec. Es ist sehr ruhig dort. Man braucht auf jeden Fall ein Auto. Das Haus ist sehr schön eingerichtet und gut ausgestattet. Es hat 3 Schlafzimmer im Haupthaus und ein zusätzlich buchbares Studio (Doppelcouch) das eine eigene Eingangstüre hat. Im Wohzimmer gäbe es noch eine Ausziehcouch. In allen Schlafzimmern gibt es Ventilatoren.Wir waren zu 9. dort, 2 Familien mit Kindern zwischen 3 und 13. Der Pool war zum Abkühlen und Plantschen absolut ausreichend. In ca. 2km Entfernung gibt es einen Bäcker, Geldautomat und einen kleinen Supermarkt. Die nächsten Strände sind bei Vrsar ca. 15 Min. per Auto entfernt. Das Haus war sehr sauber. Bei schlechtem Wetter wäre es etwas eng in Wohnzimmer und Küche. Schade dass es 3 Kühlschränke aber keinen Geschirrspüler gibt. Der Vermieter war im Vorfeld sehr hilfsbereit und vor Ort gibt es eine Agentur als Ansprechpartner. Wir würden jederzeit nochmals nach Stranici kommen. Danke für die schöne Zeit dort!

Stranici is a small village set in the beautiful countryside of Istria. It is approx 10km from the sea but the major resorts of Porec , Vsar and Rovinj are all within 10-25 km. The famous Roman Colosseum in Pula is only 38km. The house is well situated to visit the medieval hill top villages of Motovun and Groznjan.

All the major towns have a Venetian influence with majestic houses fronting narrow cobbled streets. Local festivals are common throughout the Summer months. Numerous large sporting events involving people from all over Europe are held every year.There are several restaurants serving good local food in the surrounding villages. The fantastic new Aquacolours water park is due to open in May this year and is only 17 km away. Other water parks can be found in the various lagunas along the coast.
