Family from Doncaster, United Kingdom July 2018

Our stay was absolutely fantastic. we didn’t venture out of the villa as we had everything there that we needed. I recommend you have a car to go out to the supermarket as it is quite hilly and a good walk away. The villa was so clean, modern, and very upmarket I can’t fault it in the slightest in fact we didn’t want to come home it was that nice. We went as a family ageing from 5 right through to 72 and we all enjoyed ourselves.

Family from Dunbar, United Kingdom July 2018

Excellent villa. Very clean and spacious. Local agent very helpful and attended to all our requests We arrived around 1am and property was hard to locate up a dark road with no signage. Located next to a commercial lorry unit and opposite a car garage which wasn't advised in the initial advert hence a little disappointing. Nearest shop is around 2 miles away in Pazin butl cafe close by and grill restaurant. Only major point of note was the cleanliness of the pool which was green for a number of days and took around a week to get clear. Disappointing for the kids and could have been a health danger. Local agent acknowledged the problem which was rectified albeit we did lose a number of days of pool usage over the 2 week break. Property next door (same owner) had a similar issue and they demanded a refund. Not sure how we stand here for and compensation. . All in all great villa and lovely country. Recommended.
