Fantastic house, even more fantastic host!

  • 5 of 5

I have rented houses and apartments at least 10 times in the past and this was by far my most pleasant experience ever with a vacation rental. Elda, the owner, was very quick in responding to any questions we had. She and her family were also easy to reach and very responsive when we had any issues during the rental.

The house itself is great. Beautiful pool, wide open living space inside, very clean, huge yard for the kids to play and Vodnjan is a great little village that is off the beaten track for tourists, while being a short drive to beaches, vineyards, other historic centers, etc.

Would highly recommend staying here, and also recommend this area to anyone who is visiting Croatia. Thanks for everything Elda!


J'ai loué des maisons et des appartements au moins 10 fois dans le passé, mais ceci à été de loin mon expérience la plus agréable avec une location de vacances. Elda, le propriétaire, était très rapide à répondre à toutes les questions que nous avions. Elle et sa famille étaient également facile d'accès et très réactif quand nous avons eu des question ou besoins spéciaux pendant la location.

La maison elle-même est superbe. Belle piscine, grand espace de vie ouvert à l'intérieur, très propre, immense cour pour les enfants et Vodnjan est un petit village qui est hors des sentiers battus pour les touristes, tout en étant à courte distance en voiture des plages, vignobles, autres centres historiques, etc. .

Je recommande vivement cette maison, et aussi cet endroit à tous ceux qui visitent la Croatie. Merci pour tout Elda!

Schönes, sauberes Haus, Gute Lage

  • 5 of 5

Der Empfang von Vermieterin Elda und ihrem Mann war sehr freundlich. Elda war auch jederzeit für uns telefonisch erreichbar. Wir waren mit 6 Erwachsenen und 2 Kindern in der

sehr sauberen und gepflegten Villa. Der große Garten war ebenfalls sehr gepflegt, der Pool war sauber und wurde zweimal in der Woche gereinigt. Im Garten befand sich für unsere Kinder ein Spielhaus, eine Rutsche, drei Hutschen und ein Kindertisch mit Stühlen und Bank.

Der große Holztisch im Garten ist sehr stabil und der Grill lässt keine Wünsche offen. Im Garten gab es überhaupt unzählige Sitz- oder Liegemöglichkeiten.

Die Lage war für uns sehr gut, wir machten Mountainbiketouren oder besichtigten die umliegenden Städte wie Pula, Medulin und Rovinj. Der nächste Strand in Fazana ist ca. 10 Fahrminuten entfernt, direkt am Strand waren auch ausreichend Parkplätze vorhanden. Ein großer Supermarkt ist in 2 Minuten erreichbar, zum Bäcker kann man leicht jeden Morgen zu Fuß gehen.

Das Haus ist wirklich nur weiter zu empfehlen.

Das Haus ist super! Viel Platz, toller Pool, alles sauber!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 3 Familien vom 19.8.-02.09.17 zu Gast bei Elda und ihrem Mann. Das Haus ist riesig, der Pool ist prima und zu den verschiedensten Stränden sind es nur wenige km.

Sollten irgendwelche Probleme auftreten, ist Elda jeder Zeit über Handy, WhatsApp erreichbar gewesen und das Problem in kürzester Zeit geklärt gewesen! Super! Kann man nur weiter empfehlen!

Owner's Response: Grazie mille. Per noi la pulizia e' molto importante. Ci impegniamo al massimo affinche' tutta la casa sia perfettamente pulita grazie a un' equipe specializzata. L'acqua della piscina e' testata e trattata da uno specialista per la sicurezza degli ospiti. Ringrazio di cuore Samanta, la sua famiglia e i suoi amici che hanno soggiornato nella mia casa, sono stati fantastici.

Wunderbarer Urlaub in top gepflegter Villa

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren mit 2 Familien (7 Personen) in der sehr gepflegten und sauberen Villa. Der Empfang von Elda und Mann war sehr herzlich. Wir konnten uns gleich Käse, Schinken, Oliven und einen regionalen Wein schmecken lassen, was für uns als Empfangsgeschenk bereitgestellt war. Das geräumige Haus, der weitläufige Garten, die verschiedenen Sitzmöglichkeiten, der große moderne Gasgrill, der kleine private Fussballplatz und der saubere und große Pool sorgten für einen absolut entspannten Urlaub. Wir machten einige Mountainbiketouren - welche direkt vor der Haustür beginnen und von Istria Bike super ausgeschildert sind. Ein Bäcker ist 200m entfernt und ein großer Supermarkt in 2 min mit dem Auto erreichbar. Die Strände in Fazana und Peroy wurden von uns genutzt und sind ca. 5 km entfernt. Die Vermieter sorgten von Anfang an dafür, dass wir uns wohl fühlten, so blieb es auch die restlichen 14 Tage. Wir kommen auf jeden fall wieder.

Grüße von Kay, Family and Friends

The old city of Vodnjan (Dignano) and of historical interest.

Inside the historic nucleus, the town has preserved its characteristic medieval with narrow hallways, irregular winding between the houses, with cobbled streets and stone facades pebbles, old streets still impressively recognizable by their Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque Venetian and many churches rich with memories and art.

The collection of religious art in the cathedral of St Blaise can be found behind the chancel. It features some remarkable pieces including an impressive collection of reliquaries, priests robes and early Christian sculptures from churches in the region.

The Holy Bodies together with the relics of the saints were brought to the Vodnjan in 1818.

The Bodies, as well as the remains are not embalmed and as such represent an inexplicable phenomenon of self-preservation. At a CT scan in 2009, it was established that the Bodies of Saint John Olini and Saint Nikoloza were preserved containing all of their internal organs, which is considered an unique worldly specimen of self-preservation by the anthropologist and archaeologist Dr. Matteo Borrini from Florence. To date, 280 000 visitors, of which about 180,000 school children, have passed through here.

The return to the centuries-old tradition of olive growing has

recently ranked Vodnjan at the very top of the fi nest olive oil producers.


Sacral collection in the Parish Church of St. Blaise and

the non-decomposing bodies of saints.

St. Foška’s Church near Batvači with Romanesque frescoes.

Vodnjan Town Museum in Bettica Palace. On the ground fl oor is a small

collection of stone monuments from archaeological research carried

out in the vicinity of Vodnjan, and on the upper fl oor are paintings

of a profane theme donated by G. Grezler to the Vodnjan Municipality.


According to the inscription „Eccclesia s.inquisit Istriae“ on the lintel of the portal,

in the 15th c. the seat of the Inquisition of Istria was in St. Martin’s Church.

Composer Antonio Smareglia wrote his opera Istrian Wedding inspired by the life

and customs of Vodnjan.

The best beach 'station is located 5 km away. You can visit the islands of Brioni, the former residence of heads of state, today a National Park that includes 14 islands. The greater city 'of' Istria, Pula (Pola), known for its Roman amphitheater is 10 km away. The other location 'Istrian tourist are within easy reach.
