If you want to be within walking distance from a sunny beach or relaxing in a private garden in the shades of pine trees or just a short drive from the cosy town of Pula, then this is the holiday home for you. The house has all the modern facilities you need incl. airconditioned bedrooms. And Roberto (the owner) is very helpful and easy going. A highly recommendable house. We just hope to be back.
The garden was very beautifully designed and cared for and a lovely peaceful oasis. We spent most of our time at the villa on the verandah or in the garden
The villa is comfortable and well cared for and has all comforts provided for and some lovely works of art and crafts making it more personal and boutique .
Roberto was very helpful and efficient and everything was set up and explained so we didn't need to ask lots and of questions . We were met at the bus stop nearby and driven to the house . Roberto even presented with a very enjoyable and thoughtful gift of local red wine and Sardinian crispy bread .
The bikes were very handy but after one ride along the main road to supermarket , 1 km away , I kept to the quiet local road Down to the beach (because the main road is narrow and busy) . We didn't have a car , Roberto does suggest you do , the reason being that the nearest shop ( it is well stocked and helpful staff) is 1 kilometre away along the beach , there is no footpath on the road, and the local buses run every hour or so. We did discover a coastal path to Chia which took approximately 1hour & 45 mins to walk and was very quiet .
So the quiet " most of the time" is because at night 9:00 pm - 11:00pm the nearby resort plays loud music and has someone yelling into the microphone which ruins a lovely late dinner on the verandah . Also local neighbour had noisy builders sawing tiles going on for three days . But Sadly noise is everywhere these days and the rest of the time is quiet and peaceful with thoughtful neighbours .
There is a very narrow spiral staircase , fine for us but may not be for some .
The water at the beach is beautiful clear and clean and stunning blue a great temperature and a small friendly local beach bar is a great spot to sit in the shade and enjoy an evening drink or snack .
We needed time out after a lot of stress and definitely did a lot of relaxing and recovering in this beautiful villa .
Amazing location, close to everything you need , and more importantly the house is just as you would want , a home away from home, exactly as it looks in the pictures. Roberto and giuliana were brilliant, only a phone call away for anything you need, can't recommend enough, we will defiantly be returning here in the years to come.
Roberto was very friendly and showed us around the house and recommended some places for us to visit. The house was lovely and had everything we needed and had a good BBQ outside and a beautiful garden.
I would highly recommended this place if your after a quiet relaxing house close to the beach. We had a great time.
We had a good stay. The house has everything you need for a summer vacation.
The garden is big and beautiful and well taken care of, the porch is great and also with a nice speaker setup :)
The owner Antonio is very helpful and always responding quickly.
The beach is close and it's great, very clean and crystal clear water. Also other nice beaches nearby in Chia, Teulada...
Markets and shops are also nearby.

We had a very nice time at the house. It is close to the beach and is very comfortable. The owners are very welcoming, friendly and were always happy to help.
We were on a one-week holiday with our 6-year old daughter. The house and the garden around it were perfect for our holiday, and the owners could not be kinder. They assisted us in all questions, before and during our stay. There are small shops (5 minutes away by car) with wonderful meat and fish. On the way back from the (carabean-like) beaches of Chia, there are stands where to get fresh vegetable and fruit. Picking up fresh produce on the way back from the beach and cooking everything on the outside barbecue was a treat. We would copy the design of the outside barbecue (sink on the side, aromatic herbs in front) if we ever have a chance of having one... You need a car. There is a very nice beach 5-minute walk from the house, but it would be a pity not to see the beaches of Chia - they are 15-20 minutes away by car.
