About Dorina Vlakancic

My husband and I have lived and worked in Great Britain for 12 years. After intensive and successful careers as TV producers we decided to change not only the climate :), but the jobs as well, and so we decided to return to native Croatia / Istria.

Now we are working in different fields, having more time to enjoy the sea and other benefits of this mild Mediterranien climate.

Of course, we miss London a lot!

But now, when we visit this enchanting city, something we do as often as reasonably possible, we have more time to enjoy it fully.

Dorina Vlakancic purchased this apartment in 2008

Why Dorina Vlakancic chose Rovinj area

Rovinj is irresistable! We always loved the charm of this stunning old city, its narrow cobbled streets and colourful facades, always found it very special in many ways and when by chance we saw this appartment we just said that it was an opportunity we couldn't say no to!

Initally, we kept the appartment just for us, we have furnished it just for us and our dearest friends, but now we have decided to share it with other people so we can maintain it well.

There are beautiful islands, beaches, very special restaurants and great range of bars in this unique city. And it is so easily accessible, with Pula airport just 40 minutes drive away!

What makes this apartment unique

Pinocchio 55 is pure magic, wonderful retreat in all seasons, winter as well as summer, giving one a very special feeling of being so close to everything and everyone and yet, having this distance...

The feeling one has in this appartment is pretty unique; of being so high up above other houses, having this privilege of overlooking the open sea, with no sound of cars, just distant human voices, footsteps and seaguls' chatter...

perfect apartment in Rovinj

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is situated right in the Old Town in Rovinj, with spectacular views, and easy access to everything. We were met by the owner Dorina when we arrived (who is lovely) , and it was a quick 7 minute walk from the bus station to the apartment. There are a few stairs to navigate to the apartment, but it is certainly worth the climb.

The apartment is gorgeous, stylish, spacious, and really well equipped. There is a galley kitchen, two fabulous leather couches(really really comfy), super fast internet, cable tv, a very spacious bed, and stunning views. Pretty much everything you might need.

The apartment is really great, but even nicer is the outside space, on the terrace: with lovely views over the sea, and the unique Rovinj rooftops. It was perfect for breakfast every day, and lovely for an evening drink before going out. (With some shade for those who might need it, ie an Irish redhead!)

We had a great time staying here, right beside all the local restaurants, and only a couple of minues from the sea(for a quick dip as it was pretty hot!).

We loved our stay, it's an apartment in a perfect spot and had everything we needed.

We were met by the owners who could not have been lovelier. The apartment was as described in the listing, (including the long haul up four flights of stairs), and was clean, very comfortable, light and airy. What cannot be stressed enough are the spectacular views of Rovinj; with its high vantage point every window looks out on red tiled roofs and the panorama from the roof terrace is stunning taking in the towering St. Euphemia's Basilica, the chaos of buildings and the Adriatic. It is tempting to stay their all day watching the returning, seagull pursued fishing boats in the morning to the amazing sunsets. But then Rovinj has a lot to offer and the apartment is in the heart of the old city, a short walk from the rocks you can swim from and the many bars, restaurants and shops. Dining out is excellent and the market has great fish, fruit and vegetables. The kitchen is small with just a two pan hob, but we still managed enjoy cooking for ourselves. We had a wonderful holiday and would definitely recommend this apartment
