“Good choice for Istria!”
Reviewed 2 April 2013 for a stay in March 2013

We had a really great time in Istria. The appartments are all in a very good shape. They are clean and there is enough room for 4 (or2) people. The hosts are very friendly and helpful. Both are really good cooks. From the house you have a good view to Groznjan which is just a five-minute-walk apart. The destination itself is quite good because all hotspots of Istria can be reached within an hour. All in all: A very good choice for a fair price. - Andreas and Susanne from Austria

“Stunning views of Groznjan”
Reviewed 12 March 2013 for a stay in July 2012

While traveling through Istria, we spent some time at this lovely villa which is in walking distance to the stunning midieval city Grosnjan. Grosjnan is one of the most beautiful hillside cities I have experienced in all of Europe. We enjoyed the live music and delicious meals made with fresh local ingredients.

We just loved walking through the gardens, swimming in the pool and enjoying the stunning views. The setting is that which can only be found in Croatia.

The villa is immaculate and comfortable. We cannot wait to go back. Next time, I will bring some friends. What another great trip that will be.

Thank you, Lorena and family for opening up your home to us.

“A beautifull house in tremendous surrounding”
Reviewed 11 October 2012 for a stay in August 2012

We stayed there during the hottest days of summer with extended family and children. In spite of temperatures like 39 degrees C it was very comfortable in and around the house. Extended lunches with local artisan products in the shadow of veranda and olive trees with a tremendous view to medieval Groznjan. The house is very convenient and save for the families with small children. There are a few bathrooms and beds and matrassing are excellent. The owners are very helpful and to be easily reached. The house is very clean en the big garden and olive orchard are well maintained. The owner comes once in two days to maintain a swimming pool. Only minus point is quite old washing machine. if you stay somewhere a few weeks with three children than you need a fair washing machine. Groznjan is 10 minutes walk, with elegant art galleries and shops and a gorgeous terrace in front of cathedral where you can sit in the shadow of chestnut trees en drink a fresh prepared ice tea of organic cultivated lemon and mint. Thera are some tourist walking around but it is still enough quiet to listen a music or read a book. During our stay there was a master class classic guitar in Groznjan. We enjoyed with whole family inc small children concerts of young musicans in the open air, in the patio of formerly Ventian courtI. Groznjan is 20 km far a way of the see coast but also enough far of mass tourism. The supermarket is in Buje, 7 km by car (or jogging as my husband did; not recommended for people with a week heart because of steep inclination). There is also a tennis club in Buje and for those who like bycing is this area a real paradise. And Istra has a very good kitchen. There are a few very good restaurants in surrounding. We alreay booked Casa for the next summer.

“A pleasant house with a great view close to a lively old town”
Reviewed 10 October 2012 for a stay in July 2012

I have been on an holiday in Casa Margherita with a group of friends and some children. The house has a nice atmosphere, a beautiful and large garden and an very nice view. One can easily walk to Groznjan, which is a great little medieval city, with a music summer schools and concerts all summer long. There is a Jazz Festival as well. The house itself is very conveniently placed; it is quiet but at the same time easy to reach. One can do a lot in the surrounding countryside (which is really very beautiful!) - one can walk or bike or just drive around visiting beautiful old towns. The sea coast is close by - one can actually see the sea from the house. There is a nice swimming pool, with a beautiful view as well. One can easily overview the swimming pool from the house, which was good with small children. The house is children friendly. There is a good wifi in a whole house and the terraces as well. We have cooked almost every day and the main kitchen is well equipped. The house is really nice and it was a pleasant base for trips to Groznjan and other cities in the neighborhood. There is even a tennis court close by. The hosts were very kind an easily approachable. We had a very pleasant holidays there.
