Guestbook comments from the owner

Notre séjour en Croatie au mois d'août nous a ravis. Nous avons apprécié le charme et la propreté de cette superbe villa, très bien équipée. Nous avons passé d'excellentes soirées en terrasse. Villa Amélie est située dans un endroit calme et paisible , un peu difficile d'accès, mais avec une vue magnifique sur la cote d'Opatija et Icici. Les activités ne manquent pas: nous conseillons la journée en mer avec escales sur les îles de Krk et Cres; le restaurant Galeb à Icici (agneau et cochon de lait à la broche); les chutes de Plivitce et les très beaux villages d'Istrie. Merci à Iva et Al pour leur gentillesse et excellent accueil.

Exceeded all our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Clean beaches and sea, hot sunny weather, great food and wine. And our hosts Al and Iva went out of their way to ensure we had an enjoyable stay in their lovely villa. What more could we ask for?

Fantastic villa, easily the best we ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

We've holidayed in villas for the past 20 years but Villa Amelie has to be our favourite. The sea views are breathtaking. Nice location - very tranquil but still close to Opatija which is a lovely resort. Great choice of restaurants and bars - all very affordable. And very friendly people. We love Croatia!

Such gorgeous views! Will definitely be back

  • 5 of 5

Peaceful hillside position with most things just 10 or 15 minutes away. The villa itself was wonderful. So spacious and beautifully decorated. Lots of outdoor space - garden, balcony, sun terraces. A truly wonderful holiday. Highly recommended.

„Sehr empfehlenswert!”

Absolute Ruhe, traumhafter Ausblick, liebevoll und stylisch eingerichtete Haus - waren selten so begeistert von einer Ferienunterkunft. Es ist alles, was man so braucht, vorhanden. Wir haben ganz tolle Tage verbracht und kommen auf alle Fälle wieder.

Topp Ferienhaus!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten das zweite Mal unseren Sommerurlaub in Kroatien und haben mit der Villa Amelie eine super schöne Unterkunft (die schönste die wir jemals hatten) gefunden. Das Haus ist Top ausgestattet, toll Eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Nur die Lage hat Vor- als auch Nachteile.

Durch die hohe Lage (auf dem Berg) hat man eine super Aussicht über die Bucht besonders am Abend wenn überall die Lampen leuchten z.B. in den Orten Icici, Rijeka usw.. Der Nachteil des Hauses ist die Anfahrt. Einem sollte bewusst sein das man ein Auto braucht um von dem Haus (Anfahrtsweg von Icici ca. 9km) wegzukommen. Der Weg zu Haus besteht aus ca. 8km Landstraße (Serpentinen), 1km einspuriger Weg und ca. 500m ziemlich steile Schotter- und Beton-Piste. Am Anreisetag musste ich mich stark überwinden den Weg mit meinem Auto (3er BMW Coupe) zu befahren, leider hatte ich keine andere Wahl und es funktioniert auch!! Am besten man fährt wie unsere Freundschaft einen SUV. Mit einem tiefergelegten oder mit einem Sportfahrwerk ausgestatteten PKW wird man Schwierigkeiten haben die letzten paar Meter zum Haus zu befahren.

Den Fußweg nach Icici haben wir einmal ausprobiert, aber wir haben für den Weg (wenn man das so nennen kann) mit 7 Personen (teilweise mit Sandalen) ca. 40 Minuten gebraucht. Der Weg besteht aus Stufen-Reste und Stein-/Sandweg, der durch den Regen vom Tag zuvor sehr rutschig und matschig war. Keine Empfehlung für jeden Tag!!! Nur für Wanderfreunde!!!

Es sollte einem auch bewusst sein das es in Opatija und Icici keinen Naturstrand weder Kiesel noch Steinstrand gibt. In beiden Orten gibt es nur Betonplatten!! Wir sind immer nach Mošćenička Draga (ca. 19km) zum Baden gefahren. Dort gibt es zwei Kiesel-Strände. Ein vorderen und größeren und ein kleinen und hinteren Strand. (zu Fuss ca. 800m). Leider sind beide Strände relativ voll, besonders am Wochenende wenn die Kroaten frei haben, dann ist es schwierig durch die erste Reihe am Strand ins Wasser zu kommen.

Ausflugtipps sind Pula, Rovinj (sehr süßer Ort, tolle Alt-Stadt, aber sehr sehr touristisch) und Trieste ((Italien) super schöne Alt-Stadt am Hafen und Top Shopping-Möglichkeiten für meine beiden Mädels).

Villa Amelie is ideally located very near to the beautiful town of Opatija, on the borders of Istria and the Kvarner Riviera.

The well-known resort of nearby Opatija offers beaches, water sports, bars, restaurants, discos, casinos, shops, open-air films and concerts.

Other Kvarner Riviera seaside resorts include Icici, Lovran, Volosko, Medveja and Moscenicka Draga.

The bustling port city of Rijeka is well worth a visit. As are the historic hillside towns of Kastav and Trsat.

Boat excursions to the islands of Krk, Cres and Rab are recommended.

Or travel to neighbouring Istria with its beautiful countryside and coast.

Further afield lie the lakes, mountains and forests of Gorski Kotar and the UNESCO waterfalls at Plitvice.
