My Amazing Restful Stay

  • 5 of 5

I instantly fell in love with Istria. I arrived in Villa Laguna during the Rain season. The owners Rick and Sally showed me around the town of Pore? despite the weather. Their hospitality is remarkable, even in the off season, they made certain I was comfortable and every possible avenue was available to me so that I may revel in my trip. My spirit soared with the arrival of the sun in the crisp blue sky, so I stayed longer. It is wonderful to wake up breathe in the fresh mountain air and look out to the sea while listening to the chorus of birds. The gardens vitalize your connection with all the nature that surrounds the Villa. The pool area is beautiful for staying in the Villa! There are many spectacular paths to walk along the shore and through the trees. This is such a great place to rest, regroup and spend time with family and friends. If you are alone, it is still a good escape, Rick & Sally will make sure that you attain what you seek. Every person I have met speak some English so I had no trouble getting the things that I needed during my stay in Istria. There are many towns with vivid character very near the Villa to visit and explore. You can bring back tasty treats from your explorations to the fully equipped kitchen. The decor is very simple with a pleasing & calming color scheme. I believe I have found friends forever in this magnificent vacation spot. I will come back to stay with this couple I have grown so fond of. I very much appreciate all that they have shared with me in this gorgeous land.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This is a belated review of Villa Laguna after our fantastic summer holiday. We stayed in the 1 bed apartment which suited us perfectly - great size & good kitchen facilities for what we needed (we are out every night!) The pool area was lovely -warm water, clean subnets, shaded table area to enjoy a drink. We even had a BBQ one evening using the stone oven near to the pool.

The location is great - short drive into Porec and we got a taxi there and back some nights to have a drink which didn't cost us very much.

The best thing about our holiday though has to be Sally & Rick! Their friendliness and hospitality was great. From recommending and booking restaurants, to dropping us off at the harbour when we were leaving early in the morning... all fantastic! Hope to return in the future with friends or family.

Thanks again for a fab holiday!

A sucessful return

  • 5 of 5

Having had a lovely holiday last year in October we knew that after a tiring early part of the year that we would love to return again to the beautiful Villa Lagune. And again we were not disappointed - yet again we experienced a wonderful holiday. Sally and Ricky were as hospitable and friendly as before and made us feel very pleased that we had made the decision to return. In the attempt not to repeat my last review all I need to say is go to this place to receive friendliness, quietness, fantastic food and a pool that is always warm (due to the solar heating in place).

As before we will be going back - always a new restaurant to discover. Think Tuscany without the Euro and you will get the idea.

Wonderful holiday in a wonderful villa!

  • 5 of 5

When arriving at Villa Laguna, we were greeted by the owners who were extremely kind and hospitable.

The villa was beautiful and situated in a small quiet village but close enough the main town of porec and the beaches. Although the village had a small shop and we had cooking facilities in our apartment we only ate in once, as the restaurants are amazing. Even better there is a great little resturant in the village, which is only a few minutes walk from the apartments!

I would advice car hire, as there is lots to do and taxis can be quite expensive.

This is a great place to stay and I will definitely be back!
