About Nikolina

All our life, we have been lucky enough to travel the world. Experiencing different cultures, world views, aesthetics, cuisine, we have learned that people everywhere wish to enjoy the simple, beautiful things in life. Spending time with family and friends. Enjoying good food. Appreciating all that nature has to offer. This has been the inspiration in making Banistra the ideal holiday villa. Here, guests leave behind their stresses and discover again what makes them feel alive.

What makes this villa unique

Our guests often say, 'It's actually more beautiful in real life than in the photos!'

Our lush 9.000 m2 garden features a large grassy field shaded by trees, perfect for playing ball with the kids. In this private garden, one can enjoy the sounds of nature, the smell of the budding flowers and the fresh sea breeze, right from the villa’s patio.

If exploring the countryside is more your speed, the villa provides bikes for the whole family to ride down the road along the vineyards and the coast.

Our trusted house attendants offer 5-star service in arranging deliveries of fresh food (the day’s seafood, fruits and vegetables), restaurant reservations, wine tastings, and olive oil-lavendar Istrian massages at the villa’s spa.

Staying at wonderful villa Nina!

  • 5 of 5

Villa Nina met our expectations completely! What a wonderful place with a lot of space, a beautiful park and a pool. Everything was clean and well-maintained. The owner provided an excellent service.

We recommend this property to everybody looking for a peaceful and quite place to stay in a tasteful surrounding. Another advantage: Access to the sea, a small shop and a few restaurants is within walking distance.

Stunning, lovely and exquisite.

  • 5 of 5

We just left Villa Nina and can only say wonderful things. The villa itself is stunning--photos are accurate, if anything, the property is even more beautiful in person. The owners were beyond attentive. They helped us with reservations, excursions and even found us our favorite wine when we could not! Massages on the property were relaxing and luxurious. The location is a quiet village in Istria, right next to the coast. We spent many evenings walking along the sea-side and taking in the breathtaking sunset, before enjoying one of the many delicious restaurants close by. I highly recommend the Banistra Villas--either Nina or Ana--if you can find either available, I would not hesitate to book! A wonderful holiday awaits. We were a group of 8, 4 adults and 4 children--- the property works well for families and adults alike.

Honestly, I expected great service because all the reviews we had read were great. But, it was more than that. Luxurious, cosy, comfortable and it felt like home. Owners are very cooperative, you can ask them whatever-whenever, friendly...the beach is close, but if you've got kids, the pool rules! All in all, fantastic experience I would like to repeat:-)

Excellent house, really friendly people!

  • 5 of 5

We just want to say thank you for a fantastic holiday. The House is excellent, and had everything that we needed. We loved the garden, the herbs, the pool, the playground and everything.

the service was really great. We've been getting so much help the whole week! Driving us to the shoppingmarket, The vine tasting, a visit to a small farm, olive oil tasting, cheese tasting etc. Danijel, the taxi driver, was really helpful AS well!

We really wish to come back some day.
