“A gem hidden in the countryside betwen Bale and Rovije”
Reviewed 2 August 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We had a wonderful stay at beautiful Villa Ana. Mauro was very welcoming, trusting and friendly, and he helped us finding the best restaurants in Istria (best pasta with fresh truffles ever!!!). As the weather wasn’t too good, we were very happy to have a cosy fireplace and lots of firewood. And our kids fell in love with the cats - especially with the baby kittens... This location is ideal for anyone who would like to see Rovinj and Bale and to travel around Istria as a family or as a group of friends. Thanks again Mauro!

“Impeccable in Every Respect”
Reviewed 30 May 2016 for a stay in May 2016

We were greeted by Mauro at his impeccable rental which had fresh flowers on the table, a bottle of local wine, a bowl of fresh fruit and water as well as two bottles of local brandy in the fridge. Once we had all baggage in the house Mauro invited us to try the local sage or honey brandy or both while he proceeded to explain to us what we must NOT miss. We followed his instructions and were delighted by the hilltop villages and the restaurant with delicious pasta with truffles. Mauro is very knowledgeable about the various tastes of tourists and he supplied us with a range of places to see and where to eat according to our interests. The location is peaceful and has easy access to all of the surrounding area. We highly recommend Villa Ana for a memorable stay in Istria.

“Highly worth recommending!”

First of all, the accommodation is just as nice in real life as it is in the pictures. I has a lot of privacy as it's on the end of a pretty long private driveway although the owner and his family will drop by regularly to tend to the plants and some pets. They're great and very friendly people and we enjoyed having a drink with them on one occasion. The owner speaks English remarkably well and is very nice. He can tell you a lot about the surroundings and will show you a few of his own favorite spots. There's lots to do and see in the surrounding area and you will also get passes to go to one of the commercial beaches where you can enjoy a drink, let kids play or rent a boat, waterski, jetski, surfing gear and much more. But do check out the wild beaches as they are also pretty remarkable. I'm sure I'm leaving out al kinds of details but you'll have to experience those on your own. In all, we were very - very - content and we look forward to returning.

A few remarks;
- the accomodation is two buildings of which one is divided into 2 houses. You'll be staying in one of those, so if the other half of the house is rented out you will have some company on the property. The family may stay at the third house.
- there are bugs everywhere in the region so you will get your share on the property (mostly grasshoppers and a few other critters) but the house has screen doors on most windows so inside you can be bug free
