Winderful holiday had by family of 4 (with 2 young boys) in Montizana

  • 4 of 5

We are a family of 4, 2 adults and 2 young boys (1 & 3) and are just back after a wonderful 10 days in Croatia. The villa was perfect for us, set in a very quiet & lovely rural area and within (relatively) short driving distance of Porec, Rovinj and Vrsar. Small playground and play area a short walk from the villa which was a great bonus. Everything we needed was available in the house and having our own pool was great. Having a car is essential as there are no shops or restaurants in walking distance of the villa. One tip is to pack the mosquito repellent. John provided lots of recommendations for restaurants, walks, shops etc and Martina & family were lovely to deal with in Montizana and allowed us to have a late check out which was a great help. All in all a great holiday was had!

Great property, amazing holiday

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed an amazing holiday in a beautiful part of the world August 2015. It was our first time to Croatia and the whole process proved straight forward and stress free thanks to the detailed and helpful information from the owner who had thought of everything from directions to advice on restaurants, local activities and tips on language!

The property was comfortable, spacious, clean, quiet, well maintained and great value for money.

The pool was lovely, local beaches beautiful and not packed even in August. The restaurants served wonderful food and not expensive.

We particularly enjoyed a trip to Ravinj, about 25 minutes in the car and a day trip to Venice arranged in the local tourist office in Porec (about the same price as booking from home and easier booking it locally).

We loved the tranquility and privacy of a house with a private pool but, with 4 teenagers also enjoyed the buzz of local towns with great bars and restaurants, truly something for everyone!

Will definitely be telling our friends about it !
