About Ecovillas: villas with private pool for rent

I live in Italy with my husband, my son and our dog Max. We spend most of our holidays in Istria, where I'm from and where my parents live.

Ecovillas: villas with private pool for rent purchased this villa in 2005

Why Ecovillas: villas with private pool for rent chose Vodnjan

I'm an architect and it's my passion to deal with reconstruction. We found an old stone house from the beginnings of the 19th century in nice position, near olive fields and near the sea, and we liked it immediately.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Serenity away from busy and over crowded tourist areas.

This villa is made with style and charm. 12 people including children had space and calm to enjoy our week there. Fresh bread from the baker next door every morning and good supermarkets close by, makes living and cooking there an easy task and sitting outside in the evening at the pool enjoying the famous Croatian Plavac (Zinfandels) wines from Hvar was such a pleasure that everyone really enjoyed the holidays. Great restaurants in the area (ask Ines, the owner) and many beautiful towns and places around to visit filled out our days and evenings until the night pool sittings..! Of course we had some amount of beaches and sun tanning, but this was not our main purpose and so this villa is absolutely perfect for such intentions. Only down side is that a car is absolutely necessary to get around as this villa is located a few km's from the nearest village Vodnjan. By Claus My Value: 5 of 5.

Schöne Anlage, aber in die Jahre gekommen.

  • 2 of 5

Bei Anreise war die Außenküche verdreckt und der Kühlschrank funktionierte nicht, der Grill war nicht gereinigt, eine Dusche defekt, bei einer zweiten war der Abfluss zugesetzt (wurde auch nach Anzeige nicht behoben), hinter dem Haus lagerte Bausschutt und -reste. Trotzdem schöne Lage und aufgrund des Pools für Familien mit Kindern gut geeignet.

Owner's Response: Dear Daniel, it's a pity that you didn't communicate your disappointment because we will certainly resolve things that you reclaim, so I'll try to replay as shortly as I can: - we have a wild cherry tree over the back kitchen entrance that in this period has a lot of small dark fruits - it would be enough to remind our cleaner when she came for the pool maintenance to clean that area, simply to communicate it. Unfortunately, you didn't cared at all about white sofas in the living room that have been spotted by chocolate by your children, and also you didn't mind about mattress protections that has been spotted by your or your friends children. - the fridge in the back is broken, it is placed outside just to be brought to the electronic waste: in the house you have a brand new one fridge, bigger and with better performances. - sorry for the barbecue grid, my husband forgot to clean it because you asked (and it has been allowed) to check-in two hours before - he just forgot it when you've arrived, it would be easily resolved just reminding him. - I don't understand which shower is not working, our five showers are working perfectly, they are spotless, and Jacuzzi shower at Lavandula house has a little bit slower out-flowing (because of construction of pipes under it) but it's working good. When I met you it seemed to me that you've been enjoying a lot a comfort of our spacious and tidy home and the pool, even if you didn't respect our house and pool rules: first of all it's not allowed to invite other persons to a barbecue and pool party without my approval, then we have strict rules to respect ecology and water saving but you didn't cared about it: there was always a lot of waste water all around the pool, and the most important thing: you didn't declared your two months old baby and you've hardly avoided international law, you cannot travel without baby's documents.... Last but not least: you haven't payed tourist tax to our Croatian Tourist office- it was due and clearly precised in our house rules.... I think that good communication and clear rental agreement with house and pool rules always resolve each possible problem that we could meet, Kind regards Ines
