Very well appointed and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely self catering villa which feels like you're in someone's very tastefully furnished and well equipped home, largely because that's exactly where you are.

Easily reached from Trieste airport in about 90 minutes by car, the final few kilometres up the sort of steep windy road I'd only ever seen on TV coverage of the mountain stages of thet Tour de France are an event in themselves.

Nino and Regina were waiting with a delicious snack of local ham and cheese and our children were delighted to be put on cat feeding and well duty (although there's perfectly good taps for those not up to filling a bucket).

Two separate staircases - one leads to the lounge area with a balcony, armchairs, TV, DVD player (which you can plug a USB stick full of films into) and hi-fi (with a valve amplifier, how cool is that?); and the master bedroom. The other staircase leads to a further bedroom with double bed and PC that Nino generously makes available to guests and then on to the upper bedroom with a double bed, single and another single in a little alcove.

Ground floor bathroom has a shower and bath and there's a separate toilet. The kitchen has everything you'd need including a coffee machine that made our Gaggia espresso machine at home seem a bit second rate. Utility room reached from outside with a washing machine.

Outside there are two outdoor dining areas, one at the back off the kitchen and one at the front by the built in barbecue. The separate pool area has plenty of loungers, a dining table and chairs and its own barbecue area. The table tennis table wasn't quite finished when we came but it will be an excellent addition.

Nino & Regina know the local area well and are happy to provide any information you might need. We've rented several self catering places over the years and this outshines them all for the standard of accommodation. This villa would be great for a family with two or three children plus another couple of adults.

Excellent place for families

  • 5 of 5

We stayed one week in July 2010 and this house and its surroundings really exceeded all our expectations. You reach all beaches of Istria by car for daytrips or just decide to relax a day or two at the house enjoying its new pool and barbercue. A real advantage is that the house is situated in the mountains where it is calm and the climate is dryer and cooler than if you stay at the coastline (where it is hot and humid). The house is really well planned and holds a really high standard. We stayed two families without any problems at all. The owners provided excellent service during our stay.

This place is excellent for families seeking a calm place to rest in while exploring Istria and its beaches by car.

My highest recommendations!!!

Owner's Response: Dear Mats, thank you for your valuation. We are glad to have had yours and Ole's family at the Villa Regina. For we are new in this business, it's a really nice experience for us to meet people from all over the Europe and to become so easily familiar with them. Expecially a big compliment to your intelligent and beautiful five children. Good luck, hope to see you again: Nino and Regina.

Traumhaftes Landhaus - Erholsamster Kurzurlaub

  • 5 of 5

Absolut empfehlenswert für alle die Ruhe und Entspannung suchen. Das Haus ist wunderschön eingerichtet und sehr gepflegt. Es fehlt einem an nichts dort. Der schöne Pool lädt zum entspannen ein.

Nino und Regine geben sich sehr viel Mühe, das man sich sofort willkommen fühlt und abschalten kann. Wir kommen sehr gerne bestimmt wieder :-)

Traumhaus mit Charme und allem was man braucht

  • 5 of 5

Die Wochen bei Regine und Nino in ihrem wunderschönen Haus in den Bergen waren wohl die erholsamsten seit wir mit unseren drei Kindern in Ferienhäuser fahren. Der wunderschön angelegte Pool an dem man in völliger Ruhe entspannen kann und gelegentlich den Schwalben beim Badeanflug zusehen kann, ist großartig. Das WLan trägt dazu bei, dass auch die etwas größeren Kinder zufrieden sind. Die Oma konnte in der super ausgestatteten Küche Kuchen backen und so die Früchte verarbeiten, die wir auf dem Markt in Rijeka gekauft haben.

Die Eiswürfelmaschine ist ein Segen bei der Wärme und hat auch die kroatische "Cola" Cockta zum beliebten Getränk gemacht.

Man ist umgeben von grün rund um dieses tolle Haus. Das ist bei Ferienhäusern aufgrund der nötigen Pflege sehr selten und schafft dabei doch eben genau das Urlaubsflair das wir gesucht haben.

Danke Regine, danke Nino für die Mühe die ihr euch gebt um diesen Ort für Menschen wie uns so angenehm zu machen. Auch schafft ihr es hervorragend immer zur Stelle zu sein wenn man euch braucht und andererseits den Gästen die Privatsphäre zu ermöglichen, die sie möchten.

Wir kommen sicher wieder! Da ist sich die Familie einig!

Toller Familienurlaub!

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren eine grosse Reisegruppe bestehend aus drei Generationen. Mit GPS im Wagen findet man das versteckte Bergdorf auf Anhieb. Der erste Eindruck war: das ist in Wirklichkeit schöner als auf den Photos im Internet!

Das sehr geschmackvolle Anwesen hat unsere Erwartungen mehr als erfüllt. Alles war sehr sauber und in einem gepflegten Zustand. Sogar eine Eiswürfelmaschine findet sich im Hause.

Die freundlichen deutschen Vermieter leben 200 m entfernt und kamen morgens um den Pool zu reinigen. Wir haben uns echt angefreundet mit ihnen und haben die gemeinsamen Grillabende genossen.

Wer seine Ruhe abseits des Massentourismus sucht ist hier goldrichtig. Für uns war das ein absolut sorgloser und grossartiger Urlaub!

Fantastisk villa

  • 5 of 5

Vi var så heldige at kunne få villaen i 11 dage og kun betale for villaen i 11 dage, da vi ikke havde mulighed for at komme før. Vi var der i perioden 19. juli til 31. juli 2016.

Vi blev budt velkommen af Regine og Nino, som havde forberedt en barbecue med fisk, kød og salat. Det var en dejlig overraskelse og noget vi aldrig have oplevet før hos andre værtspar. Vi følte os straks velkommen. Regine og Nino er utroligt søde, venlige og hjælpsomme.

Villaen, som Regine og Nino overtog som en ruin for 10 år siden, er bygget totalt om og fremstår som en fantastisk flot og gennemført villa, med respekt for den oprindelige arkitektur. Der er virkelig kælet for detaljen på alle områder. Villaen består at en stor stue, 3 soveværelser med dobbeltsenge, 2 toiletter og 1 bad. Et fint køkken med opvaskemaskine og gaskomfur. Der er wifi og tv med mange internationale kanaler. Der er en stor terrasse og en mindre terrasse, hvor man sagtens kan sidde 6 personer. Der er endvidere en mindre balkon, men en fantastisk udsigt over området.

Der er også en swimmingpool med tilhørende poolhouse. Det er derfor muligt at ligge i skygge hele dagen, hvis man ikke vil nyde solen.

Der er en masse krukker med blomster og små bede med blomster. Der er endvidere en lille urtehave med tomater, salat, løg mv. som gæsterne kan bruge af.

Alt er utroligt velholdt. Regine og Nino er der hver morgen, for at passe blomster og rense swimmingpoolen.

Vi har rejst mange gange til bl.a. Italien og Grækenland, men har aldrig boet så flot og mødt en så fantastisk værtspar som Regine og Nino.

Vi kan kun give vores varmeste anbefalinger til alle, som ønsker en ferie i et fantastisk hus med et fantastisk værtspar og samtidig langt væk fra al turisme og larm.

A small asphalt street lined with serpentines around 2 km up from the historical small place of Roc. Krkuž is a lovely small village with 15 friendly inhabitants in total, untouched nature landscape. From this place (500 m over the sea), you will have measure vision over the untouched north coast of Istria, which is south orientated. The Villa Regina is a part of a historical house ensemble of 1869. Located in the green nature, you can expect calm clean air and nice weather, apart from the humid weather on the Istrian high summer. Day excursions to Triest, to the island of Cres, to the great karst caves of Slovenia or to the Nathional Park Risnjak (where lynxes, bears and wolves still live in freedom) which is recommended in any season. All the beaches of Istria, all the historical lakes and worth seeing places are reachable after a short drive. Our area is the centre of the famous Istrian white truffles. Good eating and drinking are a tradition here!

Other Activities: Off-road, Cross biking, Free climbing
