Super Sommerurlaub Juli 2016

  • 5 of 5

Wir (zwei befreundete Familien mit je einem Teenager) verbrachten hier wunderschöne 14 Tage. Das Haus ließ keine Wünsche offen. Es war alles vorhanden, was man für einen erholsamen Urlaub benötigt. Der Pool wurde täglich gereinigt und hatte eine sehr gute Wasserqualität. Die ruhige Lage und der dörflichen Charakter von Galizana machten es uns sehr einfach, sich hier wohl zu fühlen. Unsere Vermieter waren sehr gastfreundlich und bei Fragen immer ansprechbar. Vielen Dank Natascha und Dino

Sommerurlaub 2015

Sehr schönes Haus, mit super Pool!!! Zimmer groß. In der Küche alles vorhanden. Die Hunde in der Nachbarschaft waren nachts manchmal nervig. Insgesamt super Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Nicht in jedem Zimmer eine Klimaanlage, hatten wir vorher nicht drauf geachtet.

La surprise fut totale. La villa est très propre et très bien entretenu. Le propriétaire entretient la piscine tous les jours. Tout est très fonctionnel. Avec 5 chambres et 3 sdb nous avions chacun notre intimité. Le papier toilette ainsi que les serviettes de bains sont fournis. Nous sommes tous vraiment enchanté de cette location et du sérieux des propriétaires.

Toller Urlaub in Galizana Kroatien

  • 4 of 5

Super tolles Wetter in den 14 Tagen und ein sehr schönes Ferienhaus.

Sehr nette und aufmerksame Mieter die immer ansprechbar waren.

Super Gas-Grill mit Metallplatte zum zubereiten des Essens während dem Urlaub. Pool war immer top gepflegt, und es gab ausreichend Liegen für alle.

Überlegen schon, ob wir nächstes Jahr wieder hinfahren wollen.

Wunderschöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Sehr schönes, modernes und sauberes Ferienhaus. Die Anlage mit Pool ist sehr schön und gepflegt. Angenehm ist auch, dass der Garten und der Poolbereich für niemanden einsichtig ist.

Erwähnenswert sind auch die drei überdachten Autostellplätze. Unter dem Walnussbaum im Garten haben wir zu 9. wunderschöne Grillabende verbracht. Unsere Vermieter Natasa und Dino waren sehr gastfreundlich und hilfsbereit. An einem Abend wurden wir mit kroatischen leckeren Spezialitäten überrascht :-)

In Galizana gibt es auch zwei Bars und zwei kleine Supermärkte, die fußläufig erreichbar sind. Der nächste Strand in Fazana ist sehr zu empfehlen, da es dort eine Liegewiese mit Bäumen und einen Kiesstrand gibt.

Wir haben einen wirklich wunderschönen Urlaub dort verbracht und wenn wir wieder in Kroatien Urlaub machen, dann nur bei Natasa und Dino!

Tolles Haus und tolle Vermieter

  • 5 of 5

Wir (Oma, Opa, Mama, Papa und ein Kind 1,5 Jahre alt) haben eine Woche hier verbracht. Es ist ein sehr großes und sauberes Haus, alles sieht genau so aus wie auf den Bildern. Der Garten ist schön und groß und ist wie die Gegend drum herum toll für Kinder. Die Vermieter, Natasa und Dino, sind super liebe und hilfsbereite Menschen. Sie wohnen direkt im Haus nebenan und sind jederzeit für Fragen da. Wir haben unseren Aufenthalt trotz des eher bescheidenen Wetters sehr genossen. Wenn wir wieder in Kroatien Urlaub machen, dann ganz sicher wieder hier. Vielen Dank für die schöne Zeit.

Among other things you can see in nearby city of Pula, in Galizana you can visit the following:

Cultural sights of Galizana - Gallesano


Above the door of the Galižana parish church (1613) dedicated to St. Rochus there is a coat of arms with a lion, probably the symbol of Pula’s bishop Giulio Saraceno who consecrated the church in 1634. The church is a medieval building, later reconstructed in the Baroque style especially its interior.

In the apse nook there is the statue of St. Rochus (1295-1327), the patron saint of Galižana. On both sides of the tabernacle there are the statues of St. Peter the Apostle and St. Just.

The detached bell tower is 36 meters high and was built in the 17th century.


The three-nave Romanesque basilica dedicated to Saint Just is a sort of architectural “unicum”. The building is everything opposite of symmetry: the central nave has obviously been moved in relation to the longitudinal axis of the church. The southern wall is 80 cm longer than the northern, so that the angle at which the walls meet is not right, but obtuse. The windows are in the shape of a lunette, while the southern ones are somewhat smaller. The same goes for the pillars dividing the naves and their capitals.
