Pool / Spa
Spacious and well equipped house with beautiful views.
Lovely house and stunning views but not what I expected having seen it on the site. It said ‘ laid back from the road’ and I envisaged a long drive rather than just 4 or 5 metres. Probably just my mistake but I had pictured a villa in peace and quiet rather than on a road surrounded by houses. Don’t get me wrong there is a lot going for this property but we are used to peace ! And the pool was just too cold to enjoy - don’t know why as it was the end of a hot summer and we have had no problem with unheated pools before, but this was too cold to use which was really sad. This would sadly put us off another time. But as always Croatia is lovely, friendly people, lovely villages and scrummy food.
tolles Haus, phantastische Aussicht
Sehr geräumiges Haus mit 4 schönen Zimmern, jedes mit eigenem Bad und dem grandiosen Ausblick auf Motovun!
Auch der gemeinsame Wohn-/Essbereich ist schön eingerichtet und bietet mehr als ausreichend Platz.
Trotz alldem war der Pool der Mittelpunkt unseres Aufenthalts.
Es gibt in der Gegend einige sehr gemütliche Lokale in denen es sich ausgezeichnet essen lässt.
Einziger Kritikpunkt: der Garten könnte etwas öfter gegossen werden - war schon etwas dürr und die Wege bedürfen einiger Ausbesserungsarbeiten.
Insgesamt war es ein wunderschöner Urlaub an einer ebensolchen Location!!!

Wonderful villa to stay and relax
Towards the end of the summer we had a great vacation in Vizinada were we stayed for 2 weeks in the wonderful Villa Serenity.
We that are two families from Munich – 4 adults and 4 kids between 4 and 8.
We found Villa Serenity exactly as we imagined from the pictures and we loved it right away. The highlights are the 4 x 8 m Pool that we used constantly and the view over the hills of Istria with Motovun in the middle. The house is very stylish with a huge kitchen/living room and 4 large bedrooms each with a separate bathroom. We just had that feeling, that this is the place to be.
I especially liked the morning hours when the sun reflects on the Pool and gives the Kitchen celling a little glitter and when the relaxed and contented atmosphere takes any hurries for additional activities. There are actually plenty of possibilities for trips to the sea or the county side or for hiking and biking. From time to time we just had to stay to enjoy continuous pooling at the villa and later a bbq under the Istrian stars.
Beautiful Villa in a wonderful town in Istria
Villa Serenity was exactly what we were hoping it would be. A beautiful Villa, peaceful, spacious, with amazing views of Motovun from the pool and situated within a short walk of Vizinada, great restaurants and a small cafe/bar that became a fun place to watch Croatia in Euro 2016!
Waking Up to a View to Die For
A superb house in a lovely part of the world. This spacious four bedroom house exceed our expectations. It is tastefully decorated, very well maintained and we immediately felt at home. We drank many cups of coffee on the back patio by the pool overlooking a valley view to die for, a view that changes dramatically from the sunrise which illuminates the dramatic misty valley below to the setting sun, lighting up the evening sky. There are a few local places within walking distance for a drink or a few groceries and a load of good eating places within a few minutes drive. The ocean is about 20 minutes away and Istria is a lovely part of the world to explore. We chilled, relaxed, ate, played Mexican Train Dominoes and were very much in our element. Oh yes, we even got ambitious and used the pool for our morning swim! Sigh .......
Hi Richard. Many thanks for taking the time to review Villa Serenity. We're really happy that you enjoyed your stay. I shall have to google Mexican Train Dominoes!! I've never heard of that! Best wishes Caroline
With a population of around 250, the sleepy village of Vižinada is an ideal getaway from the speed of daily life and yet ideally positioned as a base from which to visit the famous Roman towns of Porec and Pula, the medieval hill top villages of Motovun and Groznjan, the Venetian built promontory of Rovinj and the Austro Hapsburgian town of Opatija. Villa Serenity stands at the edge of the village and atop a hill with sweeping views over the Mirna valley and across to Motovun. Two local supermarkets within walking distance offer essential goods and daily fresh bread.
