Un souvenir inoubliable. Nous y retournerons.

  • 5 of 5

Les premiers contacts pour cette location furent les échanges d'information entre la propriétaire (ou sa responsable location) et nous. Et déjà le suivi, la rapidité des réponses, la courtoisie de Caroline nous ont mis en confiance.

Il est vrai que cette villa est vraiment à l'écart, et qu'il vaut mieux utiliser Google Earth au préalable pour tenter de savoir comment y arriver. On peut dire sans se tromper que c'est "au bout du bout du chemin".

Une très belle habitation, au calme, ni trop grande ni trop petite, intelligemment ordonnée, bien restaurée, et ne manquant de rien.

A notre arrivée elle était super propre.

La vue sur Motovun, au départ de la terrasse ou de la piscine, ne laissera personne indifférent. Elle est superbe, changeant selon les humeurs du temps.

Au départ de ce magnifique endroit, vous pouvez rayonner dans toute l'Istrie en moins d'une heure. De très nombreux villages perchés à visiter, des villes côtières, des caves à vin, producteurs d'huiles, etc.

Nous sommes en plein territoire de la truffe. Autant dire que les excellents restos proposant ce produit ne manquent pas. Tous comme les établissement offrant des produits de la mer.

Bref, ce furent de magnifiques vacances, dans un endroit idyllique.

Certains que nous y retournerons.

Merci Caroline.

PS: pour le soir, prévoyez néanmoins un peu de répulsif pour les moustiques :)

Genieten met een super uitzicht !

  • 5 of 5

We hebben genoten van ons verblijf in deze mooie villa. Zeer rustig gelegen met prachtig zicht op het stadje Motovun. Ideaal om te verblijven met twee gezinnen. Een auto is wel noodzakelijk want de dichtstbijzijnde grote supermarkt is 30 min rijden. Enig minpuntje is de vaatwasser die niet goed werkt 😜. Zorg ook voor goede muggenzalf... Als je wijn wil proeven zeker langs gaan bij de buren "fakin". Het is veel goedkoper om rechtstreeks bij hen te kopen ipv in Motovun.

We willen zeker nog eens terugkomen !!! 😎

Fantastic property, highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Great layout with seperate bathroom for each bedroom, amazing views, multiple out door seating areas and beautiful pool right next to house. It is down an off-road track but that helps with serenity and can walk to coffee (through vines) in 20-25 minutes. Minor quibble that has no basic supplies (e.g. dish cloth, dish washing liquid, extra toilet paper) but overall a brilliant experience.

Stunning quality, wonderful peace and quiet

  • 5 of 5

It's hard to beat a holiday home like this one. High spec, well maintained new build but with the character of an older property. 4 beds each with own bathroom, and very nicely furnished. From my perspective, everything was as I would have hoped for. The pool was also a delight, as were the views both down into the valley and then up to the hill top town of Motovun. Would certainly recommend.

Istria at the end of the season.

  • 5 of 5

Our holiday was at the beginning of September, quite late but perfect timing for us and the weather. This house is delightful, cool in the heat with with its thick walls and shutters, warm and lovely outside. The terrace, the pool, the ping pong table, the walk to the village (about 35 mins) all make for a perfect holiday. Istria is beautiful, so easy to get around with friendly people and good food. I can't believe it has taken us so long to discover it. I would thoroughly recommend Casa Lucia.
