We stayed for three nights in an apartment with a bedroom and a pullout bed, small kitchen and good-sized bathroom. There was also a terrace with a table and chairs, shared with other guests, but we were lucky enough to have it to ourselves whenever we went out there. The building is very attractive, set in landscaped gardens, and the pool area is lovely, with chairs, beds and umbrellas. The whole place is very clean and well cared for. The staff are exceptionally friendly and helpful. The owner told us the history of the place and showed us old b&w photos of how it used to be. They booked a taxi to pick us up from Porec, where we arrived by ferry from Venice, and gave us advice on local attractions. Small details like drying racks for pool towels were a nice touch. The restaurant was excellent. We were arriving late and ate there the first night, not sure what to expect, but the food was outstanding. We had fresh fish with a big platter of vegetables - eggplant, zucchini and potatoes. The friendly waiter recommended a local wine which was delicious. Breakfast was also very good, with a range of meats, cheeses, cereal, fruit, yoghurt, juice and pastries. They made cafe lattes to order and those were very good too. The location is perfect - about 20 minutes' drive to Rovinj, a charming town with a port and good beaches. We liked being out in the country, though, away from the bustle. There is a walking path right outside the hotel too - a good place for a walk or a jog. I hope we have the opportunity to return!
