Great view in a charming village

  • 4 of 5

We stayed a week in the largest of the appartments. We were 2 adults and a 10 month old baby and a 4 year old.

The House is lovely, with all the needed amenities. It stays Nice and cool on the hottest of days, so that one Can cool off inside. If staying during the Cooler seasons be sure to enquire about a heat source. The terrace is lovely with lots of seating. It is situated next to a small pathway so that there is a partial view of the valley. There was one car passing in the week we were there.

The real gem of the house is the garden which is immaculately kept with roses, wine plants etc. The pool is great, just the right side. The view is stunning !!! There is a great outdoors seating area for soning, one for cocktails etc. and one for suntanning. The garden is seperated by a small pathway, so not in direct connection with the house (5 meters seperation) and it did not make a difference to our experience.

The village itself is an attraction with lots of charm and one feels immersed in history. There was a folk Music festival and it was really something for the locals, not a tourist thing.

Lastly, we felt extremely welcomed by the owner who lives nearby, and made sure everything was in working order. She also provided local produce. We highly recommend this property

Perfekt Lokation and high hospitality

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in Draguc and we can recommend this lokation in any case. We stayed there with our three kids in the apartment ''sasa'' and our friends with two kids stayed in the apartment ''donatella ''. It was enough place even for more people in our apartment. The highlight is the nice garden with flowers, a big pool and a great view. We enjoyed the time there with swimming and barbecue . The owner is very warmhearted and friendly. You can come to her her with all problems. She even brought us self made oil to take home with us. You can buy things in Pazin, about 20 min from Draguc. In about 50 min you can reach the sea on both sides of Istria. Draguc is a nice town with low tourists. We enjoyed that. We look back to a very nice stay in Draguc.

High Quality Charming Retreat

  • 5 of 5

Ten of us (5 adults, five children ages 9 -14) rented this property for a family gathering. It was perfect for us! The hill town is romantic and rustic and peaceful, the house is very nice, with old world charm, seems newly renovated and is well appointed. We slept 7 in house Sasa and 3 in Donatela next door. There is an exquisite covered eating area where we all gathered for meals. The outdoor garden space is gorgeous and was a great place for the kids to swim, and for us to barbecue and watch the sunsets. Draguc is perfectly situated for touring nearby towns on the peninsula. Our host was extremely accommodating and friendly and brought us cookies and drinks the first night, then another day fresh vegetables, then even a delicious cake she had made. We highly recommend this property.

Super Zeit gehabt

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit Freunden und insgesamt 2 Kleinkindern und einem Baby vor wenigen Tagen vor Ort, 2 große Häuser mit jeweils 2 Zimmer Wohnungen. Große Terrasse. Nur wenige Meter vom Haus entfernt Swimmingpool mit einem kleinem Spielplatz und einer Grillstelle sowie einem Kühlschrank vor Ort. Sehr Gastfreundlich empfangen mit selbstgemachtem Schnaps und leckerem Olivenöl. Haben uns gut erholt und Energie getankt.

Super familienfreundliche Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Super schönes uriges Haus in einem kleinen Bergdorf! Gute Luft und wunderschöne Aussicht sind garantiert. Die Besitzerin ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Sie hält das Haus, Garten und Pool super in Schuss. Zum Meer fährt man allerdings ca. 40 min, was aber für uns kein Problem war. Wir werden wieder kommen...
