Fantastic holiday in Villa Histriae

  • 5 of 5

We along with 3 other couples have just returned from a week at Villa

Histriae. We had an amazing and thoroughly enjoyable week's holiday in

this beautiful location. Croatia is a lovely country with friendly,

welcoming people and stunning countryside. Villa Histriae itself is a

spacious, comfortable and well furnished holiday villa; we enjoyed many

relaxing evenings on the patio admiring the stunning views of the

valley and the nearby town of Motovun or a refreshing swim in the

pool.

It is in an ideal location within a short drive of the pretty Adriatic

seaside towns of Porec, Lovran and many others. The historic &

picturesque little village of Grosnjan is only a short drive away as is

the Italian town of Trieste; we even made a daytrip to Venice from

Porec.

We came away with many happy memories and all agreed that it was one of

the best holidays ever. We are certain to return to this stunningly

beautiful location.

Wonderful Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of 5 and we stayed in Villa Histriae in early July. A fantastic place! The villa is down a track in the midst of nature with stunning views across the valley and up to Motovun. We loved sitting at night by the pool and looking up to the twinkling lights of Motovun while listening to the crickets chirping

The coast is only 20 minutes drive away.

The villa itself was clean, spacious and has all modern amenities. Very well equipped!

The manager of the property was very helpful both before our booking and during our stay. Some great recommendations for day trips.

Motovun is close by for shops and supplies and there is a nice walk to it along the old railway track.

We have been renting villas for many years and this one is high up there with the best of them for both quality and price.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Villa Histriae from the moment we arrived The welcome arrival pack let us relax by the pool with a chilled glass of wine, admiring the view while the kids jumped in the pool. Such a great peaceful location. It was great to be able to walk up to dinner at the Agroturizam Toni konoban up the road. Central Istria is stunning. I had no idea! but easy access to all areas of Istria meant that it was a great place to stay. We would love to come back one day.

Wunderschöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten 5 Nächte in diesen wunderschönen Haus. Wir waren 4 Pärchen mit einem Baby. Die Ausstattung ist sehr hochwertig. Die Lage richtig schön ungestört. Wir waren auch das Jahr zuvor schon ein verlängertes Wochenende dort. Eine klare Empfehlung von unserer Seite aus. Kommen gerne wieder...
