Three bedroom villa with plunge pool near Vrsar, Istria sleeps 5
This charming villa is situated near the Limski Canal located along Istria’s popular western coast. The villa would suit a small family / group of friends looking to stay in a quiet hamlet where there are an interesting selection of Konobas to dine at nearby, some within walking distance of the villa. The property is also within easy reach of popular places of interest.
The villa is approached from a road into a short side road where entrance is through the main gate into a sunny courtyard garden featuring a heated plunge pool with Jacuzzi settings and an outdoor eating/BBQ area. Guests enter the villa from the courtyard directly into an open plan kitchen/diner/lounge with a separate shower and utility room. The first floor features 2 x double bedrooms, a twin room and a separate shower room. The villa is located near a farm and some mild country smells can arise.
Apart from the Limski canal where you can find some of the best mussels and oysters in Croatia, the nearby sea side towns of Vrsar (pretty marina), Rovinj (spectacular town) and Porec (Basillica is a ‘don’t miss’ as is the lively waterfront) are also all well worth a visit. A little further afield the Brijuni islands and Roman amphitheatre in Pula are always a popular hit with visitors. Car hire is recommended at this villa.

Very nice cosy private property in a small rural village. Tablets/ powder were supplied for washing machine and dish washer. The property has very good wifi connection and air conditioning was available throughout the property. Most of our time was spent outside on the patio which has been partially covered to provide a shaded area throughout the day. The plunge pool and outside shower are a fantastic facility.
The agent and owner were very helpful. The owners welcomed us with a little snack when we arrived and came to provide us with fresh bedlinen and towels halfway through our stay and sent us home again with a cherished souvenir. The agent came out very early on our last day to collect the keys to allow us ample time to get to the airport on time.
Impressed with: Beautiful scenery, wonderful coastline, the nice food.
Not impressed with: Parking in Novigrad (be sure to have change)
Recommend: We ate at the local Konoba (2 minute walk) nearly every night. The food is very reasonable and plentiful not to mention delicious and the staff are very friendly and welcoming as is the local community. You can buy delicious homemade cheese, ham and salami and have a drink whilst you decide what to get, at a b&b/bike point in the village. Local seaside towns are a 20/30 minute drive away.
Favourite villa moment: Breakfast by the pool whilst being entertained by the occasional curious lizard. Breakfast by the pool whilst being entertained by the occasional curious lizard.

Property description states several konoba within walking distance. In fact there is only one. More cutlery. a few general tourist blurbs but no advice on visits or local restaurants. Owner lived nearby, visited regularly, but was very discrete. Plenty of much appreciated gifts.
Impressed with: Surprised by the few arts and crafts accessible
Recommend:Go to grozjnan avoid all restaurants in Flengi, local konoba ok, go to fjord restaurant limski, though a bit more expensive go to grill at Gradina, cheap and good, but book and be prepared to wait

We did thoroughly enjoy our stay in the lovely villa, and appreciated its proximity to the toll roads which took us to the parts of Istria very quickly and easily. It is a superb spot for anyone who wants to see your area, and has a mind to go into Italy or Slovenia.
A kettle or teapot of some kind would have been good, together with mirrors in the bedrooms. Some instruction on the electrical switches in the house would have been helpful to us when we arrived. We tried all sorts of combinations to get hot water, and probably made matters worse! A call to Neil soon resolved our issue with the owner sorting it for us very quickly.
Our party was made up of two families. Thus the siting of the air conditioning unit meant that we had to leave our bedroom door open to remain cool. Not ideal.
The Agent whom we dealt with was very helpful, both at the start and at the end of our holidays and was contactable if and when we needed to ask him about anything in the property
Impressed with: The people were always very nice to us and also had a superb command of English! This helped as our Croatian is NOT our strong point.
Not impressed with: The mosquitos! Say no more!
Recommend: The Konoba in Klostar 100-150 metres from the house was excellent. From the first night when we arrived late to our last night they were excellent. We ate in the same Konoba 7 nights out of the 14 of our stay. The staff could not have been nicer, nor could they have put themselves to any more trouble than they did. We would recommend it to any future villa guests. The shop adjacent to the villa selling Grappa Wine fruit & veg, like the Konoba, was excellent value for money and their fruit was beautiful!
Favourite villa moment: Having the five of us round the outside table with the barbecue on and with a nice bottle of red wine in the evening was good, but our hosts' touches of the platter and wine gift at the start and Grappa and Ornament gift at the end were both very unexpected, and were a very nice surprise. We did not get the chance to leave a thank you note for our host, but hope that you will tell him on our behalf how much we appreciated his gestures.

It wasn’t obvious how far it was from the sea, but it was lovely nonetheless.
Great service thanks
Impressed with: Sunny beach experience so close to Vienna
Not impressed with: Border queues. Recommend better guidance on border crossing options: a 3 hour pain if you get it wrong.
Recommend: 1) Fjord restaurant at head of Limski canal - great service and seafood. 2) Fruit eg nectarines at local shop by road is much better than supermarket 3) Best easy beach: drive 19km to Park Hotel in Rovinj. Park there before 1030am. Usually one space. Take Ferry to Red Island / Island of St Andreas. Spend day on great sandy beach - better and less crowded than Hotel Eden on mainland. If you hire anything like windsurf, stand up paddle or go diving you get whole family free on ferry - saves Eur 4 each.
Favourite villa moment: Lobster at Fjord restaurant.
