Idyllic Istrian holiday house

  • 5 of 5

We had a delightful week at the Dundara's house by the coast and can highly recommend it. The house was spotlessly clean, simply but comfortably furnished, and well-placed out in the countryside a short drive from old Labin. It was very spacious for our small family (2 + little boy), and would be equally good for 2 families together. Romina and her family were very friendly and helpful, and essentially we felt like we were staying at our little private villa on the Istrian coast. We were very glad we didn't stay in Rabac, which was a bit tawdry. Instead we drove each morning 10 mins down the bumpy, gravelly coast road to a semi-secret pebble cove at Duga Luka (Prtlog), with just a couple of evening outings to mediaeval Labin and nearby restaurants. Most of the afternoons we were happy simply to stay at the house and enjoy the view from the patio, laze around or play with our son in the sandpit. Shopping can be done easily at the Billa supermarket in modern Labin, but more fun is to go to the locals' covered market (fresh fish, bread, cheeses...) around the corner from it. You'll need your car here, the house is genuinely a private country retreat. Oh, and you should like cats, as we do :) Having a small child, we didn't explore much, but the area around does seem to offer plenty for nature tourism, especially for cyclists and hikers. We got what we wanted, which was to get away from it all, and just live a simple life for a week by the sea. If, like us, you want to feel like you have an Istrian rural getaway, then the Dundara house is for you.

sehr schöne und ruhige Ferienwohnung / Haus

  • 5 of 5

Das einzige, was gefehlt hat war eine Koblauspresse. Man merkt, dass es deswegen nur eine Bewertung geben kann: 5 Sterne und tolles Lob an die Vermieter: Nett, unkomplitziert und hilfsbereit. Sehr zu empfehlen!

Nachtigall und Milchstraße

  • 5 of 5

Wer Erholung in der Natur sucht, den Blick schweifen und die Seele baumlen lassen möchte, ist hier genau richtig. Über das schöne, gut ausgestattete, saubere Haus, die gemütliche Terrasse und den traumhaften Ausblick wurde hier schon ausreichend berichtet. Was uns allerdings zusätzlich beeindruckt hat, war die herrliche Natur rund um das Anwesen. Abends hört man die Nachtigall singen, der Fuchs huscht vorbei oder lässt sein krächzendes Bellen vernehmen und ab und zu meldet sich ein Käuzchen. Tagsüber zanken sich die Eichelhäher im nahegelegenen Baum, der Bussard zieht seine Kreise und wenn man Glück hat, lässt sich sogar ein Wiedehopf blicken. Straßengeräusche hört man selten in der Ferne und sonst nur die wohltuenden Laute der Natur - für uns Erholung pur. Und nachts - wenn es ganz dunkel wird - und dort wirds wirklich noch ganz dunkel - kann man sogar die Milchstraße sehen. So muss es früher vielerorts gewesen sein - hier findet die Seele wieder zurück in den Körper und man selbst zur Mitte.

Trotzdem hat man alle Annehmlichkeiten im gewohnten Standard und mit dem Auto ist auch im Umkreis alles rasch erreichbar. Lediglich die Zufahrt ist für Stadtmenschen vielleicht anfangs gewöhnungsbedürftig ;-). Labin ist ein malerisches Städtchen - wovon es in Istrien einige gibt, die einen Besuch fernab der Touristenströme lohnen. Das Essen ist köstlich, der Wein ist leicht und passt wunderbar zu einem lauschigen Sommerabend.

Vielen Dank an unsere herzlichen Gastgeber, die uns auch gleich mit ihrem Hauswein verwöhnt haben. Ein Ort zum Wohlfühlen und Wiederkommen!

Vielen Dank und Gruß aus Wien

Petra und Christoph

PS: Katzenfutter wird von den vierbeinigen Anwohnern mit Begeisterung aufgenommen :-)

Absolut empfehlenswert!!

  • 5 of 5

Kann mich nur meinen "Vorrednern" anschließen: Ein perfektes Urlaubsdomizil!!!

Wir (2 Erwachsene, 2 Kinder, 10 und 14 Jahre alt) hatten hier Anfang Juni eine perfekte Zeit. Für Menschen, die Ruhe suchen und ganz für sich sein wollen sei dieses Haus wärmstens ans Herz gelegt. Zu dem Haus gehören noch drei Katzen, was vor allem unsere jüngste Tochter toll fand.

Das Haus ist geräumig und mehr als groß genug für eine Familie mit zwei Kindern. Die Umgebung ist toll, man erreicht in Kürze schöne Strände, Restaurants und Einkaufsmöglichkeiten.

Die Vermieter sind sehr freundlich und haben uns mit Wein, Kuchen und Käse verwöhnt und uns dabei absoluten Freiraum gegeben, um unseren Urlaub als Familie in vollen Zügen genießen zu können.

Das Haus war sehr sauber und gepflegt, ebenso die komplette Anlage, die zum Haus gehört.

Wer Ruhe und Erholung sucht und das in herrlicher Umgebung ist hier genau richtig - das Preis-/Leistungsverhältnis ist absolut top!!!
