We really enjoyed the villa, it was very clean and we had a nice welcome. Kids were happy with the pool and jacuzzi. Porec is a very nice town and the beaches are wonderful.
The property is fabulous. The house is spacious and clean with a pool outside. The hosts are great, friendly and ready to help you out with anything. They gave us great suggestions about where to buy locally produced olive oil and truffles. I would highly recommend the place and I hope we will come back!
The pool and the outdoor area are stunning. Beautifully kept and maintained. This was my favourite holiday, truly relaxing. There’s a little town close by with restaurants and shops and the beaches are just a short drive away. Can’t wait to return.
The villa is beautiful and perfectly located. We had rented several villas before but this one was by far the most luxurious. The furniture, the decor, the views, the pool, everything. The internet is great which was important for us as we also had to work while there.
Beautiful villa! Gorgeous pool, a lot of space and sunbeds available. Lovely terrace with plenty of shade and outdoor furniture, we loved eating outside! Lovely interior with spacious rooms, and well equipped kitchen.
The villa was very comfortable and clean with a huge stunning terrace with beautiful views. The manager was extremely helpful. It was a really lovely villa and everything ran incredibly smoothly and we were extremely well looked after!
There are 12 members to our family – the youngest is 6 – the eldest 83. We have been on holiday as a large group for the past 10 years. Most of which we have booked with Oliver’s Travels. We’ve stayed in Chateaus, villas owned by a Prince and this villa is up with out top 3. The kingsize en-suite bedrooms are by far the most comfortable we have ever stayed in. The outside space with the most extraordinary double sun loungers and a decent sized pool was a joy.
We hired a boat, celebrated a festival at nearby Novigrad (parking is difficult so get there before 6), we parasailed, paddleboarded, had a family competition on the inflatable water park and enjoyed swimming off rocks and along a sandy beach. This is not the place for snorkelling so ignore the advertising. Back to the house it’s set in a lovely little village with a decent restaurant. Whilst Captain Morgan on the main road looks tacky the pizzas were the best we tasted and they had three inflatable slides which kept our six year old happy. You have to ignore the caravan graveyards littered across the region as this place is well worth the visit. The development company looking after the villa were incredible (and I don’t use this term lightly) they even organised a surprise for our 13 year old niece – the most delicious strawberry cheesecake from the best bakery in Porec. Thank you for making our stay feel so special.
Lovely rooms and the poolarea was very nice. We had a lovely time.
The location of the villa is great. We had a warm welcome from the owner, furniture is well matched and comfortable. Pool is very nice, great holidays in any way.
We had a splendid time at villa Helena in Spadici! The villa was very beautiful and elegantly decorated. We especially enjoyed the swimming pool and the beautiful view of the sea. Our children loved the fact that the beach is only a few meters away from the villa. The rooms were very spacious and the overall impression was that of luxury. We certainly hope to rent this beautiful property once again!
