Elegant villa with private pool not far from Porec beaches!

Overview

Property

Updated: 03-Dec-2016
Two bedrooms and a bathroom

Blending Istrian charm with countryside flair, Villa Rovine occupies two acres of fertile nature in an isolated, rather quiet and sunny position on a slope sprinkled with Mediterranean trees, clumps of lavender and carefully looked after rose beds.

The property is fenced off and offers complete privacy and tranquillity to its guests.

Elegant interiors and attention to detail combine with breathtaking views from rolling hills in the nearby all the way to the distant Alps that might appear on the horizon when the skies are clear. The unique décor features marble and wood floors, high ceilings, and walls of a warm colour palette.

Villa Rovine extends over 100 sq m on a single floor. It has a spacious living room with fireplace, large eat-in kitchen, two bedrooms and a bathroom – just ideal for two couples or a small family.

Full oil central heating makes the house very warm out of summer season.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We enjoyed the house very much which you renewed very nicely indeed, and all the family appreciated the quietness, the garden and the pool. We realize the sun in the region is always shining when we see the rain almost everywhere this summer, and were also particularly delighted to discover many worthseing cities at a very small distance from the accomodation. Rovinj, Porec certainly, but Lanterna beach left us with a very nice feeling with its special atmosphere, and we liked Novigrad particularly with the small harbour full of fishermen's boats. We have come back with very nice pictures of Lovran with its walk along the coast and the view on the islands.



We will certainly come back to Croatia that was definitely a wonderful discovery for us and we would be very pleased to recommend your rental to anyone who would like to have informations.



With thanks again and kind regards,

A fantastic week in a beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful week in Villa Rovine - the house was super clean, very well equipped, spacious and lovely and cool. The pool and outside areas were equally well kept, which made our stay very enjoyable. The owner Niksa Bartolic was incredibly helpful, with lots of information about various things, and nothing seemed to be too much to ask. Even before our arrival, Niksa provided very detailed information regarding best border crossings, etc., and kept us updated along the journey. Having stayed at many different villas over the years, this was by far the best experience we've ever had! Thank you from the Clayton family!

Wunderschöne Ferien

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus war absolut sauber und gepflegt. Das Gleiche können wir auch vom Aussenbereich und vom Pool sagen. Die Ausstattung war einwandfrei und so konnten wir uns rundum wohlfühlen. Dazu hat aber unbedingt auch der Besitzer, Herr Niksa Bartolic, beigetragen. Wir haben ihn als einen sehr aufmerksamen und hilfsbereiten Gastgeber erlebt. Von ihm haben wir wertvolle Tipps für Ausflüge und Veranstaltungen bekommen. Er war für uns jederzeit erreichbar und unser Wohlergehen war ihm weit über die professionelle Vermietung hinaus wichtig. Das war auch ein Grund dafür, dass uns der Abschied nicht leicht fiel; wir haben 2 rundum schöne und erholsame Wochen in Karoiba verbracht - Danke dafür! Klaus und Ute

Little secluded piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

Clean, well maintained and spacious villa with lots of privacy in a small quiet town. A little drive away from gorgeous beaches (do bring some water shoes, they have rocks here ;) ) and a treat to return to after a beach day for a lovely evening of dipping in the pool and relaxing on the terrace. No barbecue, but the grilling plate was awesome and was a big part in multiple great evenings of wining and dining.

The landlord N. Bartolic is one of the friendliest and most welcoming, honest and no nonsense types, who went above and beyond to fulfill our wishes.

Recommended.

Owner's Response: Thank you for such a warm review - it is always a pleasure to hear genuine and satisfactory feedback from our guests. We hope you didn't mind using electric grill instead of the fire-barbecue, last few summers were particularly warm and dry so we have decided to install the electric plate grill to the outdoor fireplace in order to increase safety of our guests and prevent possible bush fire.. Anyhow, thank you once again and we hope you will stay with us again! All the best!

It just takes one Word - splendid! Wonderfull !!

  • 5 of 5

Every thing was perfect, exept the weather. Our hosts were very kind and helpful ,they had to start the heating, because it was getting quite cold at night.

The house is beautifully equiped and lies in very good position to explore Istria, also not far from the coast. We will come again in spring!!

Amazng property!

  • 5 of 5

We had an absolutely super holiday in Villa Rovine! The Villa is comfortably located just a short drive from Porech towards Istrian inlands. Location is great for short tours as far as the sea, or longer drives to south of Istria or Krk island. Nevertheless, we didn't travel around much - the draw of the pool was too great, but we did visit a few lovely hilltop towns which gave us a good feel for the area. The house is spotlessly clean, tastefully decorated and well equipped for eating at home. Gardens are huge and well maintained, while the pool is fantastic! The owner is very nice, communicative and helpfull. We enjoyed our stay and certainly would consider a revisit!

Villa Rovine is a cosy little villa immersed in the open countryside full of vineyards, olive groves and green woods with Istrian oaks and pine trees. It is located in the west part of the peninsula, on the road heading from Porec to Motovun.

This charming, elegant retreat is situated on the very edge of the village Karojba (in direction of Visnjan) and has a strategic position to visit Istria. Located only 15 mins away from Porec by car or just a bike ride from famous medieval city of Motovun, this stylish property positioned in a beautiful country setting offers a relaxing atmosphere and every modern comfort.

Villa Rovine is an ideal property for peaceful vacations! Although just a quick drive to nearby beaches and ecstatic night life of Porec and Novigrad, the villa is primary intended for families and couples who wish to taste local vines and cuisine, attend various cultural events, visit historic towns in the neighbourhood as well as to relax in the complete tranquillity.

Golf: There is an amateur golf course very close to the villa.
