This incredibly well situated property is in the heart of medieval Novigrad only a few mins walk to its high class restaurants, lively bars and beaches. A new marina is located next to the apartment. Two modern supermarkets are close by. The appeal of Novigrad is its unspoilt nature together with its sports and recreation facilities - choice of activities has no limits.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Novigrad is definitely the best place around - found the apartment cool, clean and of high quality. Highly recommended".

"We were really impressed at the efficiency of the owner Chris prior to our visit and what you see on the web site is exactly what you get. We were two adults and two teenage girls and the apartment suited us perfectly. The apartment was fully equipped, especially with washing machine and dishwasher etc. We had breakfast each morning on the lovely big balcony. The apartment and parking very secure. Overall we would highly recommend the apartment."

"So clean, modern and easy to get to all the best places - really enjoyed the breakfasts on the balcony, spectacular sunsets and the town being so easily accessible".

"The bikes were a real bonus - excellent value. Enabled us to easily explore the places close by and beyond - the visit to the local vineyards and its fresh high quality cheap wine a must"

"Highly recommended. It was everything you described. Fantastic.

Well positioned apartment with views over the harbour. Very clean and tidy with comfortable furnishings and fully equipped kitchen.

Chris the owner was on hand to make sure we maximised our stay with great suggestions for activities such as places to eat, drink, sunbathe, cycle ( bikes are available ) or simply watch the comings and goings of Novigrad. He made every effort to make sure we all had a great stay in Croatia. We will be back !!

Just brilliant!

  • 5 of 5

Yes! What a brilliant time we had! Lovely apartment. Just as described : very cleaned, superb location (facing the marina and 5 minutes walk from the town centre) and with all commodities, ie wifi and even access to 4 bikes! We had lovely bike rides through exquisite scenery . Novigrad is a beautiful little town with many excellent restaurants offering fresh food. The locals are very friendly and there are plenty of lovely picturesque places to visits around Novigrad.

I do not have a bad word to say about Novigrad, the apartment, and the owner Chris who did his utmost to ensure our few days in Croatia were the most enjoyable. Thank you Chris!

Great Apartment and Location

  • 5 of 5

The apartment, in a tranquil location with safe parking, is exactly as described by Chris. The fully equipped, very comfortable apartment is within easy walking distance to the beach, several good restaurants and the old town After a day spent at the beach, or in town, it is great to return to the peace and quiet of the apartment. We thoroughly enjoyed the week in Novigrad. Thank you Chris!!

Perfect Apartment

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved Novigrad and The Frontline Sea View Apartments so much last year that we went again this year. We are a family of four, the two teenage girls had a fantastic time and were sorry to be going home. The apartment has everything you could need, the facilities are great and parking is secure. The apartment is lovely and quiet and is nice and big with a good size double room and a large twin room. The surrounding areas are beautiful and well worth taking time out to visit. We visited the Austro Hungarian museum and found it very interesting and a credit to the owner for showing his private collection. The restaurants are good value and we had some fantastic meals, the family favourite is the one to the right of the apartment in the middle of the park beside the tennis court, great value and fab food, the waiters remembered us from last year.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and the owner is great to deal with, the local office is on hand to answer any queries and the ladies there are most helpful.

Overall a fantastic place to visit and great value for money, we will be back.

A fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the the Haines apartment with our Daughter and her Husband. It was an ideal size for the four of us, very roomy, clean and just as described, the photos did it justice. We particularly liked the fact that we could walk everywhere from here, into the pretty town centre, the harbour and the two beaches where we enjoyed swimming. Novigrad is a delightful small town with many outdoor restaurants and cafés. It is also a very convenient location to explore the many inland hilltop villages, Pula at the southern end of the Istrian peninsula, Rovinj and Porec which are all well worth a visit.

We just loved having our breakfasts, and dinners on the balcony with a glass of wine looking out to the harbour.

Another plus was the secure on site parking for our car.

Chris was very good to deal with, answering our many questions from New Zealand. We would thoroughly recommend this apartment.

It has been thoughtfully designed to be suitable for all ages and there has been an increase each year in making the beaches and amenities children friendly. The apartment has four high quality new mountain bikes for use - either to get around Novigrad easily or to explore the many cycle paths and routes around the area. There are six specialist routes which enable the area to be explored. It is also a very easy way to visit the many local vineyards and olive groves which frequently have open days. Upon request you will be sent a DVD of the town showing it in its full spendor. Everyone loves Novigrad.
