Hi, my name is Eugenia, and Im very happy to welcome you to the beautiful Villa Diana in Lovely Istria. We love to travel! This 2016 summer we started our journey from Croatia and then drove to Italy. As it's easy drive from the Villa. We had been touring Italy whole summer long. In the beginning of autumn we flew to Greece. New Year's Eve Party in Egypt was wonderful! In Fabruary we drove to Amsterdam and enjoyed cultural life in Den Haag as well. Travel! Live! Experience! Be Happy! Best, Eugenia
Eugenia purchased this Villa in 2006

Tranquil setting, homely villa & great location
We have had the best time staying at Villa Diana. A beautiful family home, with many personal touches, thoughtful details and a gorgeous garden. Charles & Eugenia were so accommodating in preparing for our stay with two small boys, the provided a few extras, toys and high chair etc which was really thoughtful. They were great in communicating during booking and prior to our arrival and we were able to contact someone locally whilst we were there (not that we had any issues). The house was spotlessly clean for us too. It really is a peaceful setting, barely a car or other person to be seen, yet still a good location for exploring the area (by car).
I would definitely recommend this villa.
Claudia, Sam & boys,
We want to thank you very much for staying in Villa Diana. We always feel about it the same way as you described. Villa Diana is a place to have a real relaxing rest!
It's been a pleasure to meet your beautiful family and to know that it was the best vacation ever of yours.
Thank you and welcome back.
Charles and Eugenia
Our Incredible Holiday!
I dont usually write reviews, but although a bit late (sorry) I wanted to write a review about our stay at the incredibly peaceful Villa Diana in beautiful Istria. My girlfriend and I, and our small dog- Chet, had a wonderful holiday at this villa. Everything is provided, and the attention to detail to make our stay was first rate. It is a specially furnished house that makes you feel you are at an island beach! The pool, and garden helps make one drift away on a sunny day. We simply had an awesome holiday! Highly recommend this villa!
My family and I (wife and two active twins age 12) had a most special time at this great Villa Diana! The solitude, sunlight, beauty and for the children - the pool -are still wonderful memories. We spent many evenings making bbq, and watching nature - the birds are amazing! Highly recommend this villa! It is beautiful, well thought out with everything you need, extremely clean and tastefully decorated. Very relaxing and private place! The owners, Charles and Eugenia are very helpful.
Thank you Iwan, Eugenia and I are very happy that you and the family so enjoyed your stay. As you stated, we do everything we can to help our guests, and like you who become our friends, to have a great holiday. We hope you come back soon! We have improved the villa even more! We love Istria...the Toscany that still remains original! Best and thanks for your kindness, Charles and Eugenia and Diana
Der schönste Urlaub seit langem
Da wir bis her immer nur Pauschalurlaub gebucht hatten, waren wir uns zunächst sehr unsicher wie dieser Urlaub ablaufen würde. Doch Eugenia hat immer sofort auf Fragen reagiert und uns bei Problemen über email oder telefonisch weiter geholfen.
Zum Haus: man merkt, dass viel Liebe in das Haus gesteckt wurde und man über alles verfügt was man benötigt. Der Pool wurde alle drei Tage von einer Firma gerreinigt und das Haus zwei mal geputzt und die Bettwäsche gewechselt.
Dies wurde von einem Paar dort vor Ort erledigt, welches sich sehr viel Mühe gegben hat. Sie haben uns Tipps für Städtetrips gegeben und waren immer sehr hilfsbereit.
Unser Hund (Weimeraner) konnte perfekt den ganzen Tag auf dem ummauerten Gelände laufen.
Ich würde das Haus einer Familie oder Freunden empfehlen die Ruhe mögen aber auch die Stadt, welche 10 min entfernt ist, mögen.
Wir werden sehr wahrscheinlich nächstes Jahr wieder kommen!
Hello Melani and Family,
I'm very happy you had a good time and want to come back next year. Thank you for mentioning about cleanliness of the pool and house. I'll pass your comments to all of those who help me to provide a great time for you and others.
Talk to you next year,
Wunderschönes haus sehr sauber kann man nur weiterempfehlen
Thank you, Karin!
I wish you to have good holidays anywhere you go.
Très calme et proche des centres d'intérêt
Deux bonnes semaines de vacances passées dans cette belle villa fonctionnelle à quelques minutes de la somptueuse ville de Porec. Les propriétaires sont vraiment aux petits soins pour assurer un repos optimal aux vacanciers (cadeau de bienvenu, passage d'une femme de ménage, d'une entreprise assurant l'entretien de la piscine).
La villa est situé dans un petit village calme (une dizaine d'habitations seulement) mais néanmoins proche des centres d'intérêt touristiques (Porec, Limski Kanal, routes des vins, plages...). La villa est bien pensée et fonctionnelle, le terrain joliment orné d'oliviers, romarins, lavandes etc le tout sur un terrain clos (idéal si vous avez des enfants ou un petit animal de compagnie).
Je recommande cette location à ceux qui souhaitent profiter de l'Istrie au calme à l'abri de la foule des grands complexes hôteliers.
Thank you Eugenia and Charles
