We stayed in the self-catering Villa Lighthouse in Fazana for two nights with my family whilst visiting Brijuni Islands National Park, the old fishing town of Rovinj and Istria's hill towns.
Villa Lighthouse was a little tricky to find at first as the address is not on Garmin or TomTom but there is a useful map on their website (www.app-fazana.net). It is in a quiet location near the end of a narrow dirt track on the edge of the village which is 15 minutes walk away from the little harbour front of Fazana (where you can purchase tickets for the National Park ferry/ tours). The walk does take you down the rather busy main road which has no pavement (US: sidewalk) for much of its length.
The apartment (ours was #1) is modern and well appointed with a large flat-screen sat TV (great for World Cup football), mosquito screens on the windows, private balcony (ours had a view of the islands and the sunset) and a quiet air-conditioner.
Zoran and Josipa were great hosts and we much appreciated the delicious sliced ham, cheese and wine that was stocked in our fridge on our arrival.
Having lived in Belgium, they spoke great French and my daughters enjoyed playing table tennis in the basement.
Regretfully, we had to turn down Zoran's kind invitation to join him and his wife for a BBQ fish supper as that evening was the only chance for us to visit Rovinj.
Villa Lighthouse is a great place to spend a few days and we thoroughly recommend it.
