About Neven Mijanovic

We are a small family from Umag, who are involved in tourism for more than 20 years. We have a typical Istrian konoba, for which we work and for which we live. In each of our story, we want to give to our guests something special, something local, something typical.

Neven Mijanovic purchased this villa in 2013

Why Neven Mijanovic chose Gamboci

Just a few houses in Umag have a similar location to our house. But usually you can not buy this houses. We get this opportunity because one our friend decided to sell the house. Thank s to him.

In this house you can think that the time has stopped 100 years ago. When you are here, there is no pressure, no stress, just peace, you start to think about the nature that surrounds you. listen to the birds, watch the wildlife and rabbits... and only 10 minutes from the civilization.

Wonderful villa, wonderful location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa for 2 weeks and it was magnificent. The advertised details do not do it full credit, in almost every way it was better than expected. Perfectly located to explore the delights of Istria which offers a wonderful mix of culture, relaxation, great food and some great, fun tourist attractions as well. A meal at the owners local restaurant is also recommended, where the food is excellent.

Both the villa and Istria are highly recommended, thank you for a wonderful holiday.

We are a family of 5. We had an amazing time. The villa is beautiful and we enjoyed the pool and beautiful sunsets very much. The owner was very kind and helpful. He even invited us to his restaurant. The food and service was amazing. It was so good that we went a second time. I would definitely recommend the villa and the restaurant is not to be missed!
