Villa Little Haystack

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful holiday at Villa Little Haystack. It's a beautiful villa with a big garden, lovely swimming pool and spectacular views. The villa is beautifully furnished, very comfortable and very clean. We received a very warm welcome from the owners who were very attentive and looked after us very well. The surrounding countryside is very beautiful and we enjoyed visiting the local seaside town of Rabac. We highly recommend this villa! Liz, Brian and family

Silence and relaxation

  • 5 of 5

The perfect villa for someone who wants silence and relaxation. Having a huge garden and surrounded by wine yards this was the perfect place for us. The villa is brand new, nice decorated and has all the required facilities: a very modern bath and well equipped kitchen.

On the terrace we spend the most evenings sitting in the comfortable sofa, drinking an istrian wine and enjoying a delicious barbeque.

A car is required because the stores, touristic attractions and the restaurants are not in the neighborhood.

The owner is very kind and hospitable. He gave us a lot of helpful advices concerning restaurants and places to visit.

We really can recommend this villa, we spent a very nice and pleasant week there.

gerne wieder

  • 5 of 5

absolutely lovely, relaxing and clean house. owner is very helpful

das haus war super schön. die ausstattung ist komplett vom toaster bis zu den filtern für die vorhandene kaffeemaschine; auch öl, salz, waschmittel für waschmaschine, taps für die spülmaschine, handtücher und bettwäsche (der besitzer wechselt und reinigt 1 mal die woche)

es ist sehr gepflegt und entpricht anspruchsvollen ferien. wie schon erwähnt, ist der besitzer sehr, sehr hilfreich und immer erreichbar.

die feuerstelle im haus hat leider nicht so gut funktioniert,als es die ersten 2 tage noch kalt war; uns wurde aber gleich mit einem radiator geholfen.

sehr gute restaurants (istrische küche, fisch, trüffrel) sind nicht in unmittelbarer nähe, aber mit des besitzers hilfe gut zu finden.

dieses domizil ist sehr empfehlenswert!

Villa Mala Kopa is located in the South-central part of the Istria peninsula, near the small town of Barban. The old architecture of the town and surrounding villages is well preserved, olives dominate this area with warm Mediterranean climate. Barban and its surrounding countryside is well known, not only for its historical and cultural legacy but for excellent genuine Istrian cuisine. Istria is a unique and enchanted place that has welcomed visitors and settlers from all parts of the world for as long as we have recorded history. The city of Pula with its Roman amphitheater and Brijuni national park with an 18-hole golf course are just a 20-minute drive away. Great restaurants, taverns are all around the Villa. It is a great place to enjoy the food, history and, after all, to relax. A beautiful 18-hole golf course is a 30-minute drive away. Located on the Briuni national park islands.
