“Peaceful retreat”
Reviewed 10 June 2013 for a stay in May 2013

We loved our week at Villa Barbara – it was the perfect place for a relaxing holiday and a real home away from home. The house was spotless when we arrived and is comfortable and very well equipped – masses of crockery, cutlery, pans etc. The location is peaceful and the house has a lovely garden which is spacious with a good size pool – we loved the comfortable poolside loungers, complete with comfy cushions. Goran, the owner, is delightful and always ready to help with any questions about the house or area and there is a mobile phone available at the house to call him from. The location is very rural and you definitely need to have a car to get around. Driving, however, is stress free owing to barely any traffic on the roads. The nearest supermarket (small one) is about 10 minutes drive with larger options in Porec (about 35-40 minutes drive). Getting to the coast takes a similar amount of time. If you rent this house make sure to have dinner at the Konoba Tomasova (7 minutes drive) – it’s a very simple restaurant, there is no menu/choice (so not a place for fussy eaters) but the food was delicious the hospitality wonderful and the wood fire made for a cosy evening. It was also very reasonably priced.
