“We fell in love with the charming family that made this lovely well equipped house our home in Istria.”
Reviewed 29 August 2014 for a stay in August 2014

I can unreservedly recommend rental of this delightful house in Vodnjan, which is about a 15 minute drive from Pula. The owner, Mitja Orlic, and his parents are the sweetest people I have had the pleasure of knowing. We arrived on a Saturday afternoon and were promptly offered wine, beer and a variety of hors d'oeuvres including freshly picked tomatoes and prosciutto by the pool. Mitja gave us a tour of the house which has two kitchens and appears to be designed to accommodate two separate parties on separate floors. However they only rent the house to one party at a time. Both floors have air conditioning. The photos on some of the websites make the interior look a bit garish but in fact a lot of thought was given regarding interior decoration and the overall effect is very pleasing. The beds are comfortable and adequate towels and other necessities are supplied. We discovered a few things that were damaged by prior unruly occupants but Mitja and his family somehow managed to replace or repair everything withing a few hours of being notified. The nursery next door is owned by the family and is the home for various animals including chickens, peacocks, geese, two small dogs and a lovable St Bernard named Charlie. One morning Mrs Orlic arrived with a box of super fresh eggs and on the night before we left she brought an incredible fish dinner for the six of us. It was a delightful evening.

Unfortunately my wife became very ill early during our stay and required medical attention. I asked Mrs Orlic if she could recommend a doctor. She speaks only a little English but immediately got her husband who insisted on driving us to the hospital in Pula and staying with us until my wife was treated. We are both very grateful for his kindness. If you crave a country setting, fresh eggs, homegrown fruits, lots of flowers, lovely caring people, and a great house and pool this place can't be beat.
