Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful property, within a beautiful country. It was truly a home away from home that we settled into instantly because every little detail has been thought of. Perfectly located to reach out to coastal towns and pretty inland villages. The locals were always friendly and willing to help with any questions. We would come back in a heartbeat and thoroughly recommend this property to anyone and everyone.

A lovely large house ideally situated.

  • 5 of 5

A great house, pool and covered terrace very clean and well maintained. Had a fantastic week exploring. Everything was very inexpensive so eating/drinking out was not only good value but also high quality. Beautiful setting and food at the restaurant in Beram. Would highly recommend this property and Istria for a relaxing holiday.

Great Istrian holiday house!

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent one week (2 adults, 3 children and mother in law) and we had a great time. The house is comfortable, clean and quiet. It has a nice yard with pool which is great for children to play around and for adults to rest. The house is located in central Istria which also allows you to explore the entire region without travelling too much. The hosts live just around corner and they are very helpful. We would definitely come back as one week is not enough to enjoy what Istria has to offer.

Mostly, we are glad that you had a pleasant time in our house that we prepared for you with lot of love. Looking forward to have you again in Istria!

Alles super - Haus, Pool, Umgebung. Pool wurde jeden Morgen gereinigt. Vermieter standen mit Rat und Tat zur Seite. Absolut empfehlenswert.

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Communication has been great in front of the stay, and both houseowner and housekeeper is very helpsome and nice.

We travelled 2 adults and 2 kids.

We loved the house and the pool, and the croatian countryside. It was quiet and lovely. Short drive to nearest city if we wanted to be urban. Supercosy barbecue hut.

I can warmly recommend this place.

Thank you so much!

Great time in great House!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderfull holiday with 4 adults and 2 children (8 years old). It's great to feel welcome in a home that's not yours. Also the people are very very nice. The house and garden are very well maintained and clean.
