A charming rustic villa with plenty of outdoor space and a great pool area
In a nut shell, fabulous! This was our first visit to Croatia and I think we would be very hard pushed to find anything better in Istria. Deklici/Kastelir is a small place with a local store/bakery/butcher offering all the shopping essentials. It has a couple of really good restaurants, in particular Zardin (definitely recommend it) which is only a few hundred metres from the villa.
Surrounding the villa are many olive and grape fields providing plenty of running opportunities which our dog simply loved. Some of these tracks do service as official bike paths.
Porec, Umag and Pula are all just a short car journey away and in between there are many places to discover, especially the wineries. There just wasn't enough time to sample the delights each one would of offered. "Cossetto" again close to the villa produces in our opinion good white wines: half dry - Muskat Bijeli and the dry - Malvazija.
We have stayed in many villas in different European countries over the years but I could definitely see us returning here. Iris (Solis Porec d.o.o) thanks again for everything and hope to see you again some time in future.
