“A charming secluded haven”
Reviewed May 21, 2013 for a stay in August 2012

I really enjoyed staying here because the house had so much charm and character. It was very cosy and such a nice peaceful hideaway despite being almost in the centre of Vodnjan or Dignano near the impressive old Venetian piazza and town hall in . It's tucked away down some alleys and side streets.

The owners family have lived in the town for generations and this used to be their family home. The house is full of art from one of the family members who is an accomplished and productive artist.

My group rented the property for a week and the cost was really low per person per night. We had ample space with the two bathrooms.

The house is hundreds of years old and has some quirks like slightly slopping floors in some of the rooms but this only adds to the character.

I would not recommend the house if you have problems with stairs as the house has five floors, it's a typical Venetian style of building, i.e. building upwards rather than outwards.

I'd recommend this place if you want to explore Istria and the wider areas, possibly with a car as it's in a good central postion to get to Pula/Pola or Rovinj/Rovigno, and other towns. The town has a bus service to Pula and some of the other areas.
There's also a coach which service which stops in the town which goes through to Trieste and Venice.

I'd like to return to the house and do some more exploring as the area was so interesting and in many places less touristy than some other parts of the Croatian coast.

A tip if you want to get in to Pula quickly take the train from the nearby station, the trains are not frequent but it gets you into what is the nearest big town or city very quickly.
