  • 5 of 5

We were staying at the villa in the end of June this year. We also used this place for our wedding. We can definatelly say - It was the best choice we could make!

The house itself is kept in an authentic rustic style. It is perfect for any event. The owner is very friendly and helpful. He has made our stay very relaxed. You can have Doriano cooking your dinner every day. We would highly recommend it! dishes he prepared for us were fantastic. He has an access to the best meats and fish. Try steak! A propper treat!

The view from the garden is absolutelly stunning. There is a bar with house wine, bear, selection of alcohols and coffee machine. TV room is huge ! It has a big fireplace you can use. There is also a volleyball pitch and a swing for kids. All composed nicely into the villa style. Swimming pool was cleaned every day. The village is nice and quiet. There is a shop, bar and post office short distance away from villa. 10 minutes drive from Tinjan you have good selection of supermarkets. Nearby beaches are very clean, good for scuba diving. Over all - Great place, kids loved it, we loved it. We are coming back !

Beautiful country villa!!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa GiGi for 7 days and had our wedding there which was the perfect setting. The villa is full of character and has wonderful views of the countryside. It is very spacious and accommodates well for large groups.

The owner was absolutely wonderful from the moment we arrived. He was extremely friendly and nothing was ever too much trouble. His service was impeccable and has given us great memories to take with us.

I would highly recommend this villa to anyone wishing to visit Istria.

1 week in Tinjan, Istria

  • 5 of 5

The house is awesome, during 1 week it was like being in the best place in the earth! Beautiful view, nice swimming pool, spacefull. The kitchen is easy tu use, there is a bar with everything you need. The most important thing is Mr Voltic : he makes things so easier for everybody. The organisation of your trip will be simple.

Thanks You Didi!

Zwei tolle Wochen in der Villa Gig

  • 5 of 5

Wir, eine Gruppe mit 8 Erwachsenen und 5 Kindern, hatten zwei unbeschwerte Wochen in der Villa Gigi. Das Gelände und das Haus sind sehr großzügig, die Zimmer sind recht einfach aber sauber und die Verpflegung durch den Hausherrn Gigi ist hervorragend! Wir haben jeden Tag Frühstück und Abendessen in Anspruch genommen (ca. 12 € pro Tag und Person) und hatten dadurch keinerlei Arbeit mit Einkaufen oder Kochen, sogar der Tisch wird gedeckt und abgeräumt und das Geschirr gespült! Kaffee von einer Profimaschine steht den ganzen Tag zur Verfügung und es gibt Bier vom Fass, wenn man will (im Haus war früher mal ein Restaurant). Die zwei Wochen waren so sehr erholsam, und wir haben den Aufenthalt in vollen Zügen genossen. Die Aussicht vom Garten ist toll und durch die Lage des Hauses am Ortsende ist man ganz für sich und braucht auch abends auf niemanden Rücksicht nehmen. Der Hausherr stand jederzeit für Fragen zur Verfügung und war sehr nett. Wir können das Haus deshalb auf jeden Fall weiter empfehlen! Allerdings sind die Strände in der Umgebung alle recht klein und voll, zum Badeurlaub ist die Lage also nicht ganz optimal. Dafür sind Städte wie Porec, Rovinj und Pula alle relativ schnell zu erreichen. Wir hatten eine wirklich tolle Zeit, vielen Dank, Gigi!
