Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday at Villa Robur. The villa is spacious, comfortable and exactly as it appears on the website. The location is beautiful, peaceful, relaxed and quiet but lively coastal towns nearby. The pool is great! Ideal for families. A great choice for a holiday.

From the Owner

We enjoy a glass of wine or a gin and tonic sitting on the balcony. This is particularly spectacular at sunset with views of the countryside and coast. We entertain our friends and family with al fresco dining in the extensive gardens and patio. It is only a short walk to a very good local restaurant that serves excellent food and wine. It is an excellent location for touring Istria with its beautiful coastal and mountain towns and villages
