relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was great choice for spending holiday. Lana thank you for welcome food and for bringing for us bikes that we rent. Rooms and toilet were very clean and rooms are really spacious with beautiful views. First night was strange sleeping in such a quite place and waking with so many crickets. It is good location for going around Istria, so we went to Pula and Labin and every time we found perfect restaurants in every part of Istria. Close to villa there is also on the top of cliff, fish restaurant with remarkable view and excellent istrian food. We went with kids to adventure park Glavani that was 15min ride with car. If you want to relax I recoded this property.

Istria is beatifull

  • 5 of 5

We had a very kind and friendly welcome at the Vila Casa blanca although we arrived late. The villa is very well equipped and nicely decorated and furnished, very clean, great for children to enjoy nature.

Vila is 1km from shop and 1.5km from beach - one of nicest in Istria ' not crowded.

The vilage is rural, peaceful and is excellently situated to explore the rest of Istria and enjoy beatifull beaches.

The neigbourhoud is stuning with olive trees, figs, lavander, salvia and many other mediterranian spices. Close is small goat farm where we bought wonderfull cheese.

I recomend it.

A wonderful week in Istria

  • 5 of 5

My family and our friends had a super nice time in this charming place.

The house is really beautifull and simple and the surrondings are quiet and peacefull so we didn't want to leave. The best was to see goats and sheeps every morning. No cars, no traffic no stress.

Our children were so happy and myself as well, as there nothing negative can happen.

I recomend you villa Casa Blanca in Rakalj, to spend a relaxing time!

Super Villa in schöner ruhiger Umgebung!

  • 5 of 5

Vielen Dank für die schöne Woche die wir in diesem Haus mit 6 Personen + einem kleinen Baby verbringen durften.

Das Haus ist echt Super und sauber, wir können es nur weiterempfehlen.

Wir wurden von Marija sehr freundlich (mit einigen kleinen Überraschungen) empfangen. Marija spricht echt gut deutsch und ist sehr sympatisch und hilfsbereit.

Die Bilder täuschen nicht, das Haus wird sehr gut gepflegt und es fehlt von der Ausstattung her an nichts (sogar drei Babybetten waren vorhanden). Dieses Haus kann Problemlos von drei bis vier Familien bezogen werden. Jedes Zimmer hat ein eigenes Badezimmer. Desweiterem bietet die Villa zwei schöne Terrassen zum verweilen.

Der Pool ist ausgezeichnet und wurde sogar während unseres Aufenthalts einmal von Marija und ihrem Sohn gereinigt.

Die Villa ist freistehend, der nächste Nachbar ist ein paar Meter entfernt und der Bauer auch, so dass man schöne Abende auf der Terrassen verbringen konnte ohne jemanden zu stören.

Zum Strand muss man zwangsläufig mit dem Auto fahren, aber das hat uns nichts aus gemacht. Der nächste Strand ist 2,5 km entfernt, den wir aber nicht genutzt haben, da er uns nicht so gefiel. Wir sind lieber 10 Minuten (10 km entfernt) nach Duga Uvala gefahren, wo wir eine sehr schöne Badebucht mit toller Strandbar entdeckt haben. An dieser Bucht waren hauptsächlich Kroaten (einheimische). Vom Parkplatz aus (befestigte Straße) kann man rechts entweder 200 m eine unbefestigte Straße mit dem Auto direkt bis zur Bucht vorfahren oder einfach parken und laufen (so wie wir).

Kieselstrand, wie in Kroatien üblich, mit glasklarem Wasser.

Einkaufsmöglichkeiten gibt es in Rakalj (in einem kleinen Supermarkt) oder in Krnica (etwas größerer Supermarkt), ansonsten haben wir in einem großen Supermarkt (Lidl, Kaufland, Plodine etc.) bei unseren Ausflügen nach Pula (ca. 20 min entfernt) eingekauft.

Unser Fazit: Diese Villa können Sie ohne Probleme buchen und wir haben eine sehr sehr schöne Woche hier verbracht und werden bestimmt irgendwann noch einmal hier herkommen. Danke Lana, Danke Marija.

Great holiday. Beautiful villa.

  • 5 of 5

We spend one week at Lanas beautiful villa.

She and her mother who cleaned up the pool were very friendly and tried to make all wishes come true.

The conversation was very good.

The villa is really huge. We came with 7 people and had a lot of space. Every room was clean and decorated with love.

All the things that were needed been there.

It was a great pleasure to stay there and we will surely come back.

Thanks for the great holiday.

Rakalj is a small town on the west bank of the Rasa bay on the south-east coast of Istria, 12 km north-east of Marcane and 30 km from Pula. First mentioned in 1190th, and was once known for traditional Istrian Ware, whose tradition is to revive the tourist purposes, and the sailors and fishermen. Is attractive to visitors because of cultural and historical sites and ethnographic collections maintained in the native home of scholars and writers Mijo Mirkovic (Mate Balota).

Location and surroundings are rich in flora and fauna, and are suitable for hiking and hunting, and there is a tendency in the development of rural tourism.

Rakalj joy in the beautiful countryside and the sea, sun and quiet away from the crowds, and many beautiful beaches, hidden from view of people, provide a sense of freedom and intimacy.
