“Nice istrian house”
Reviewed August 15, 2017 for a stay in August 2017

The Vila was very nice and cozy. The private garden and teracce can offer you all the rest you need.
We recommend it if you like to explore Istrian nature and search for peace. We visited vila in very extreme temperatures. Up to 40 degrees. So the only option to cool down was at the sea side in Porec half an hour away.
Thanks to host Natasa which was very kind and helpful.

Dear Karin, thank you for choosing our property. It has been a pleasure to meet you and welcome you.
Regarding the heat, there's not much one can do due to a higher power of nature, but you could have used the both air conditioning units which could have at least cool down the interior:) Perhaps next time will be less hot...
I wish you all everything best.
Greetings,
Natasa

“Hygge place in Istria and a perfect wedding”
Reviewed August 7, 2017 for a stay in June 2017

We have decided to spend a few days before our wedding day at Villa Gašparini. We tried to get away from the family and stress. We live in Poreč but we didn’t know that between Poreč and Motovun exists such a beautiful place. From the moment we arrived, we felt so welcomed and relaxed. Nataša, her husband and their daughters were the most incredible hosts. The house has everything you need for stay (domestic food like eggs, vegetables, fruits and also towels, shampoos, washing machine and many more..). I would love to live in that house because it's perfectly decorated, comfortable and clean. Beautifully landscaped garden with jacuzzi, terrace and a barbecue are a real paradise for relaxation. We enjoyed bathing in the jacuzzi, playing darts and jumping on the trampoline. Unfortunately, we were very busy about the wedding so we couldn't enjoy as much as we wanted to, but we managed to spend every free moment enjoying the peace and beauty of Villa Gašparini. We could hardly wait for our friends to join us and share this fantastic place with them. Although we didn´t have much time to relax completely, we were all fascinated by the appearance of the villa and the feeling of happiness during our stay. On the wedding day we had preparation and photo shooting in Villa which was amazing. In the end I can say that thanks to this wonderful place and hosts and our dear friends we had a perfect wedding day and calm, relaxed days before the wedding, as much as they can be. We hope that the next time we will enjoy our stay even more.

“Place you want to visit again”
Reviewed May 2, 2017 for a stay in April 2017

We had a great family weekend in Istria, thanks to perfect weather, beautiful locations and superb accommodation in villa Gasparini. It's a place you never forget: tiny, but has it all; old but feeling home; green and quiet...a place you want to own. Natasa and her family were a perfect host, we didn't miss a single thing, warm welcome with pancakes (!!!)...I'm sold forever!

“Experience Istra as it really is”
Reviewed October 28, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

I stayed at the Villa with my sister and 2 cousins in early autumn. It was the perfect weekend experience. Not only did Natasa meet us with a basket full of vegetables from her garden, eggs from her chickens and a bottle of their own wine, she also helped us start the open fire, which we had a lot of fun with. The villa has a beautiful garden full of vegetables and herbs which we were able to use throughout our stay. This was amazing as we made the most delicious soup/ lunch and breakfasts. We knew it was mushroom season and Vrganje are the local best, which we asked about and her husband went out to hand pick and delivered them twice to us. We used them in scrambled eggs they were mouthwatering. The area is surrounded by some forest and little villages. We took a 2 hour walk to a near by village one day. One evening we ate at the local Konoba that Natasa recommended which was excellent. The jacuzzi was the ideal touch after a long walk, and for some moon gazing and chit chat with a glass of wine. The villa was very warm and cozy and everything about this place was perfect and amazing value for money. Natasa's family is super nice and friendly and we're there to help with anything we needed. We all highly recommend this place.

“Very nice house in a wonderful garden”
Reviewed July 24, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Natacha was a lovely host. We spent one week in her house which is perfect for parents with two kids or two couples. (Second room is a bit small.)
The house has everything you need and the garden with its vegetables and jacuzzi just perfect.

Villa highlights: owners that treat you like family, vegetable garden, fruit trees, outdoor kitchen, jacuzzi, and serenity in a tiny Croatian village. It's one of the most beautiful and comfortable places I've ever stayed. The Gaspirini's have renovated this beautiful stone cottage with attention to detail and in anticipation of guest comfort. It's a remarkable place with remarkable people.

We've already booked our next visit!

There is no other way to treat people that are as kind as you - you can only treat them as a family. We have really enjoyed your stay here and we hardly wait to see you again. Until then, enjoy yourself and expect a package from Croatia, he he:)
