About Ronald Ilic

I finished the Faculty of Economics and worked as Commercial Manager in the local firm. I speak English. My family for many years rented apartments.The Villa Antoana was completely renovated in 2012th year, when we started with renting. In the description I have endeavored to put a part of themselves to give you a my picture of really beautiful small Istrian village. Every word I wrote, it is true, because during my childhood I spent summer and winter holidays in the countryside.

Ronald Ilic purchased this villa in 2012

Why Ronald Ilic chose Istria

Very good price, excellent comfort, private parking, good location for an active holiday, extra value- free boat trip for a minimum stay one week. nearest regions in Croatia for you, indescribable peace and beauty of nature, Ideal for families with children and larger families.

What makes this villa unique

Very good price which is cheaper than in the tourist centre few kilometres further.

Extra value- free boat trip (for max. 8 persons) for a minimum stay one week

For a good price you get: a very high level of comfort, 100m2 house, 700m2 garden with swimming pool, various equipment and the possibility of up to 8 people.

In tourist centres, a major problem is the parking place, in our Villa, parking place is reserved for you.

Very quiet location surrounded by beautiful nature, which will bring you back into balance after a grueling business year.

Convenient for children, the garden is fenced with a wall and a fence. No hustle and bustle like on the sea, because you have your own pool. At to the sea you can go when you want without haste.

Our region (Istria) is the closest to you, so you'll save money and time. This is very important in the summer when the increased traffic. At the pick of the summer season, so you can save even one day.

Fantastic position for an active vacation (hiking, sightseeing, jogging, cycling).

Practically for all seasons. In the spring growing everywhere natural asparagus in the summer is swimming season, in the autumn is grape harvest and mushroom season, and winter is the season to enjoy the warmth of the fireplace

A fantastic place for privacy and peace

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful location in a wonderful landscape. Closeby you can choose between all kinds of different beaches within a 30 minutes drive. The villa is very clean and carefully maintained by the owners. The pool is cleaned nearly everyday (!). We had a wonderful time. The owners are very kind and helpful, the boat trip with Ronald and his father a highlight. We'd go there anytime again. I would recommend this place to all my friends. If somebody seeks touristic action it's maybe the wrong place to go, but if you want beautiful nature, wild beaches peace and rest that's the place. Thank you again Ronald (and your father) for your warm hospitality.

Absolutely fantastic villa and holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this villa for a month during August 2017 what an absolutely fantastic holiday we had. The villa owner Ronald and his father were fabulous, very friendly nothing was too much trouble for them. Ronald's father kept the pool and grounds absolutely spotless daily. The villa was very clean and well equipped in a beautiful location we will miss the wonderful mountain views.

We had two free boat trips included with the villa hire which were spectacular.

I would definitely recommend this villa.

Croatia is a beautiful country so much to do and the little islands dotted around are definitely worth a visit. Lots for children to do and sea very safe and clean

Thankyou Ronald and your dad for the perfect holiday xxxxxxxxxx

Lovely, clean and child friendly

  • 5 of 5

We spent there a great holiday. We were 6 (between 12y and 45y). The house is exactly like the description. We also successfully tested the sauna :-). The perfection should be reached with very little reparations and a little bit more kitchen tools (for 6 to 8 persons) like scissors, kitchen knifes

The house is great located to visit Istria and the north of Croatia.

To find the house the first time, prefer the GPS coordinates but once you find it, it's really easy to access.

If I should give a remark to the owner it should be : go further with hosting guest like you're doing now.

Fantastic villa with lovely owners

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa with beautiful views across the hills. Ronald and his dad were really helpful and friendly. The visitors advice was invaluable. We followed ronalds advice to the letter and had some lovely experiences. The boat trip was fabulous. The villa was clean and comfor table but we spent most of our time outdoors. The pool and outside seating areas were perfect for the really hot days lazily keeping cool. All in all a perfect holiday. Thank you Ronald and Elio.

Tolles Haus, wunderschöner Ausblick und Ruhe

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren bereits mehrere Male in dem Haus. Nicht weit davon sind schöne Strände. Die Villa ist perfekt ausgestattet. Sehr kinderfreundlich. Es fehlt an nichts. Es ist top gepflegt. Die Vermieter sind sehr herzlich jnd freundlich. Man fühlt sich wie zu Hause. Die Bootsfahrt ist jedes Mal ein Highlight und man kann fantastisch schnorcheln. Komme auf jeden Fall wieder.

The interior of the house is decorated in traditional Istrian style with modern equipment (air conditioning, plasma TV, internet).

This place is not a dream, this is a small village 'Zudigi' and Our Villa Antoana.

Vila Antoana and Zudigi village is only 30 km far away from the top tourist destinations, place 'Rabac'. There you will find most beautiful beaches in Istria and a lot of fun. On the other side, 20 km from the village is the town of Pazin, the center of Istria. There is famous Pazin pit. About her was writing the famous French writer Jules Verne. If you go there you will be impressed.

Only 40 km from the village is the town Pula and the famous Roman amphitheater.

If you want adventures and active holiday we recommend to our guests fantastic activity: explore and enjoy swimming in numerous wild beaches and lagoon in the near vicinity (20-30 km far away, 30 minutes by car)

This is fantastic position for walking, jogging, recreation, sightseeing, cycling.

You have to visit the town of Labin. Labin is the largest city in the eastern coast of Istria. Most interesting is the old city with churches, museum and fantastic view of the entire area Labin and Rabac.

From Villa Antoana very quickly you can explore Pula (Roman amphitheatre). Visit a beautiful tourist town of Opatija and enjoy in long walks by the sea. Visit the top of the mountain Ucka, and enjoy the beautiful view of the whole of Istria and Kvarner bay. You can also visit the cave Feštinsko kraljevstvo.

From Villa Antoana you can easily visit the islands (Cres and Lošinj), ferry port is 30 km far away from there and ferries operate in both directions every hour from 8:00 am to 20:00 pm.

With the incredible beauty of nature, crystal, blue sea, beautiful sandy beaches and hidden coves, especially will delight old Istrian small towns that are located in every major hill. Here stand as guardians for thousands of years before the Roman Empire and write our history. You simply have to visit the Old Town: Labin, Pican, Gracisce, Motovun, Grožnjan, Buzet, and explore their history. I guaranteed you, you will be delighted.
