Guestbook comments from the owner

"Villa Carinthia was a pleasant surprise, because so many of these villas are dark and a bit pokey. Villa Carinthia is open and bright, and the living space is enormous. We'll be back!" - AB - Reading.

Both villas are beautiful and have stunning views

  • 5 of 5

As first time stayers at a rented villa we absolutely loved it. We were a party of 6 and we stayed at villa carinthia for 7nights and 1night at owners other villa and although a little smaller we actually preferred the second. Owner John was very helpful and let us text him unlimited questions regarding our stay. Perfect experience, everything was spotless

The property was brilliant, really well equipped and very comfortable.

  • 5 of 5

My partner and our three young children 3, 5 and 10 were over the moon with the villa, very spacious with an excellent pool. Only a short drive from poreć where there is lovely restaurants or another one if you like to try local quisine in fuscilin (dont hold me to my spelling! Ha) a couple of villages over which was beautiful we were made very welcome and he made changes to his menu to cater for our children. Overall we had an amazing time at villa carinthia if you want to get away from the world and spend time with a 5 star view i couldn't recommend it high enough.

Did what it said on the tin

  • 5 of 5

Lovely & quiet just as it said in advert. Could not fault anything. Air conditioning in bedrooms was most welcome. The private pool was clean and gardens and house spotless. A Bar B Q watching sunset was great. Thanks for a brilliant holiday.
