Villa Nina is only 10 kilometers away from Pula, the largest city of the Istrian peninsula that has some amazing attractions. The monuments from the antiquity, medieval and Austrian period are the reason to visit Pula. Its most famous building is Arena, one of the best preserved amphitheatres in the world built in the 1st century for spectacular gladiator and wild animals fights. Today it's used for many interesting events, such as the Film Festival, concerts by international stars, gladiator games reenactments etc. The Arch of the Sergi is worth visiting as it's considered as one of the most beautiful ancient arches, and also the famous mosaic 'Punishment of Dirce' discovered by chance after the WW2 bombing. From the Venetian fortress on Kaštel there is a panoramic view of Pula.

Veli Brijun, the largest island in national park Brijuni is approachable by boat from Fažana, a place that used to be a fisherman village, but today is turned towards tourism thanks to the beauty of its beaches, promenades and the vicinity of Brijuni. Everyone that ever visited Brijuni and enjoyed the calmness of walking through the paths surrounded by woods and meadows with grazing deer has witnessed their uniqueness. Thanks to the Austrian industrial Paul Kupelwieser that bought the islands in the late 19th century Brijuni have this unique appearance. How he turned a neglected island into an elite resort and other fun facts can be learned during the island sightseeing with a tourist train.

Vodnjan is a little town that still has an appearance of a compact medieval place where representative palaces from various eras can be found, for example the palace of the Bettica Counts dating in the year 1300. But what stands out in Vodnjan is the church of st. Blaise that is first in Istria not only in one category: it's the largest and the tallest church in Istria, it has the tallest church tower modeled by the Basilica of St. Marco in Venice and has the richest collection of sacral art in Istria and widely known Vodnjan mummies.

Vodnjan area has the most preserved kažuns (little stone houses) in Istria, around 3000. It also has a little church of st. Fosca, as some say, built on a location of certain energy radiations. Its reputation has traveled a long way, so it's visited by many pilgrims and all of the others attracted by its positive energy.

Super Villa in top Zustand

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben unseren 2-wöchigen Urlaub in der Villa Nina sehr genossen. Wir waren 2 Familien (7 Personen) und hatten ausgiebig Platz. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und sehr sauber -> top Zustand. Die Bettwäsche und Hand-/Duschtücher sind vorhanden und werden von Melita nach einer Woche ausgewechselt -> super Service. Die Küche ist komplett eingerichtet und ebenfalls sehr sauber. Der Garten und Poolbereich sind ebenfalls eine Augenweide; der Aussengrill wurde von uns regelmässig benutzt. Auf unseren Wunsch hat uns die Vermieterin einen Ping-Pong-Tisch organisiert.

Das Haus hat 3 Badezimmer (nicht 4) und 4 WC's. Einzig kleiner Nachteil: Ein Zimmer (mit 2 Einzelbetten) war sehr klein.

Das Dorf Vodnjan war für uns nichts spezielles (eher ein schläfriges Dorf). Aus diesem Grund waren wir immer mit dem Auto unterwegs. Die Ausflugsziele sind aber sehr gut erreichbar.

Alles in allem waren wir vom Haus wirklich begeistert. Vielen Dank liebe Melita

Nice and modern house in quiet surroundings

  • 5 of 5

Villa Nina is a very comfortable and modern house for two families / 8 people. 3 large bathrooms (2 en suite) and 4 bedrooms on the second floor. Ground floor has a large living room, well equipped kitchen, toilet and laundry room. Kitchen has all the necessities for cooking all of your meals.

Outside area is very nice with salt water pool, a large enough lawn for outdoor games, two seating areas in the shadow plus six lounge beds.

Note on the pictures. This house has a neighbour house with green window hatches, this has the blue hatches. Neighbour house is close but did not bother us.

The small town of Vodnjan is close enough for a morning walk to the bakery and has a large Konzum supermarket that can provide for all your grocery needs. A short drive to Faezana where there is a nice beach with pebble stone. I would also recommend visiting Pula and Rovinj while being in the area.

Overall recommendation: Rent this house! Manager of the house, Melita, is very quick in responding on e-mails and gave us good service during our stay.

The only remark would be that gardening was done during daytime while we were in the house. I would recommend to garden on Saturdays when the house is empty.

Erholung mit viel Platz

  • 5 of 5

Das großzügige Haus und der Garten mit viel Platz zum Sport machen und Spielen ließ uns unsere Zeit sehr genießen. Wir waren mit 2 Familien zu Gast und jeder fand auch mal einen Rückzugsort. Es gibt viel Stauraum und eine gepflegte Ausstattung. Lieben Dank an die Vermieter, die sehr hilfsbereit waren.

Wunderschöner Familienurlaub!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 6 Personen für 14 Tage in der Villa Nina und haben eine wirklich tolle Zeit verbracht. Das Haus ist wirklich mit allem ausgestattet, was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub braucht. Nur auf die Mücken sollte man, wie immer, vorbereitet sein. Top gepflegtes Anwesen, ruhige Umgebung, super Blick ( unverbaut ) nach Süden Richtung Meer. Der Küstenort Fazana war für unsere Ansprüche genau richtig. Alles da, Restaurants, Bootcharter, Markt etc..

Pula in 15 Min. zu erreichen. Bäcker und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten in Vodnjan fußläufig erreichbar. Erholung pur.

Vertrauensvolle Vermieterin ( bei Übergabe keine Überprüfung der Zimmer ).

Danke Melita und Gruß aus dem kalten NRW
