We decided to travel the coast of Croatia but wanted a starting point where we didn't have to worry about accommodations. Our travel agent, Roxanna of Travelwise in Kamloops, BC put us onto Gargamelo Pension. Tucked away in a quiet and quaint residential area, we were pleasantly surprised by the obvious care the owners have lavished on their property. With... More

The swimingpool area is clearly newer and is very cosy... More

Great welcome and wonderful modern accommodations. Awesome flat panel TV with lots of channels and great AC. Only negative about this property is that it's too far to walk to downtown. Other than that, A+.

It's a nice pension. The hosts are friendly and give useful information to explore Porec. The restaurant is great and reasonable price. The seafood plate is delicious. My family had a great time in this lovely pension. It's only 10 min drive to the downtown of Porec.
