The villa was exactly as described and Adrian and Karmela were the perfect hosts, what more could we ask for!
We loved our Istrian adventure
Well appointed, with great outdoor spaces
We stayed for 1 week travelling around the area, We liked Motovun nearby.
The photo of the pool is spot on, accommodation was spotlessly clean and would definitely recommend it.
Great location, lovely house and pool, magnificent view! We loved staying here!
Wonderful place- Adrian and Carmella were very gracious and nice
Very nice villa and view is amazing- we loved it
Breathtaking view, and a heartwarming hospitality
We were received in a heartwarming way by the owners who gave us an immediate strong impression of the Croatian hospitality.
The view from the swimming pool of the beautiful old town of Motovun is truly breathtaking.
The villa is located in a perfect location if you wish to explore the whole island of Istria.
We have traveled a lot and visited many places and I can say that Villa Aurora belongs on top of our best memories.
I often think back on our great conversations and interactions with Santa (hi exists and is the father of the owner ;-), his kindness and his little gifts (local fruits and vegetables and great vine :))
When you get an unforgettable experience, it is with pleasure that you want to do something back. That is why I write this review and highly recommend this villa.
Wir hatten zwei wunderbare Wochen in diesem Ferienhaus.
Alles entsprach der Beschreibung. Es ist sauber und sehr gepflegt. Alles ist vorhanden und in sehr gutem Zustand.
Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Besuche (z. B. zum Bettwäsche- oder Handtuchwechsel werden am Vortag angekündigt.
Der Pool ist ein absoluter Traum. An drei Seiten mit Wald umgeben und auf der vierten Seite der Blick ins Mirnatal und nach Motovun.
Wir werden wieder kommen.
Livade are reffered to as the home of the Istrian truffle, where there is a Festival of the Truffle held every year. The Mirna valley and its surroundings are a rich wildlife location. Another interesting fact: in the early 20th century a railway called „Parenzana“ used to pass through Livade and that was important for the people of these parts because it connected them with the cities on the western Istrian coast. It lost its function long ago, but today it's used as a very accessible path for walkers and cyclists.
There is so many nearby places worth visiting and here are a few: Grožnjan, a small town with art galeries (one of them was a 14th century smithy, the oldest in Istria); Završje, with amazingly preserved medieval architecture; Oprtalj, praised by the food and wine lovers; in the end there is Motovun, the best preserved medieval town in Istria. Motovun is quiet and calm during the winter, but in summer months it becomes a crowded place that offers various events of culture and entertainment, such as the Motovun Film Festival, hot air baloon races, wine festivals or paragliding competitions.
