Villetta Phasiana
Ranked #1 of 7 Fazana B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The description of this place as a B&B really understates how good it is. The decor throughout is really good quality and the furnishings solid and well chosen. The rooms were very clean and, while not huge, we didn't find them unduly small (although obviously that may depend on whuich room you have). The location is right on the Square between the village and the harbour but we found it to be very quiet and had a very good night's sleep. Breakfast was of very high quality and we were able to eat it at tables outside looking onto the Square, which added a nice touch. The staff were really helpful, including giving advice on buses into Pula. Truthfully, the only bad thing about this gem, set in a wonderful village, was having to leave it to go home

First, Villetta Phasiana is in a beautiful and tranquil setting in a small fishing village minutes from Pula, Croatia. Most importantly it is a very warm and welcoming place thanks to the attention given to guests by Barbara, a manager and also by Dom. Barbara and also Dom went out of there way during our 3 day stay to attend to any of our needs and answer any of our questions. Recommendations for meals were always led to a very good meal and in one case a special and memorable one. The Inn is located right on the water next to the town's church, surrounded by local restaurants and bars. We enjoyed watching a local wedding and an impromptu serenade by a women's slovenian chorus during our stay. Brijuni Islands are a short boat ride from the inlet and clearly visible. Pula is a few minute drive away. Rooms are simply appointed, very clean and adequately sized. Breakfast provided a variety of options for cereal, eggs, toast and several fresh homemade jams. Villetta Phasaina was a special place for us during our trip to Istria.

When we arrived in Fazana, we knew that the centre was closed for cars. So we parked the car, walked up to the hotel which is next to an old church and booked a room. The staffmember told us to drive the car to the harbourfront carpark and wait there for her. She arrived with a golfbuggy to bring our luggage to the hotel. There was no hassle for us at all. We had a room with "seaview". This means that we had view over the little square in front of the church overlooking part of the boulevard and the sea. Our room was not as small as we expected reading the comments, but is certainly was not a big room. Superior rooms are more spacious and give you some more extra's. Beds were comfortable, breakfast on the patio was excellent.
The staff was superb. They helped us with the booking for the boattrip, the guided tour and green fee's for Brioni for half the price we woud have payed in the official shop.
As someone else already mentioned, the church bells are chiming form 5am and with the windows open youy can hear them very clearly. At the end of our stay we found out that there were earplugs in the bedside drawer. Should have read the comments better. The hotel is stylish and the building is an old patrician house, it has a terrace at the front and a patio at the back where one can have drinks watching the sunset (terrace only) and breakfast in the morning (in the patio when its raining at least one stays dry)
We stayed for two nights, Location is in the middel of the centre of the town, close to the boulevard and close to some very good restaurants of which the staff adviced us to try them out. First night we ate at Vasianum for only 200 Kuna, which is slightly over € 26,-- for a lovely three course dinner, wine and tip included.

Room Tip: superior rooms are more spacious, for just a little extra. Ask the staff to organize your trip to Br...

After following the SatNav to the hotel it took us to a car park. After walking to the hotel about 200m through the market at night, we found out that this was the only way to get to it and we had to park the car in the public car park next to the square and walk to the hotel. Not great with 2 big cases and three bags, then up two sets of narrow stairs to the room to find it not much bigger than a bed, really a bed and a suitcase each side and that was it, I stepped out of bed into it or on it every morning. Also the bed; two single matresses with a gap, what happened to a matrimonial matress?

The hotel is in a gorgeous location, it is very tastefully decorated, nice fittings in the hotel, breakfast was fantastic on the terrace overlooking the sea, lovely place and walks along the front

Beaches are stones , you need shoes, but the water was warm and clean.
Two days was enough here for us, with a trip to Pula (10 minutes in the car) and a trip to Ronvinj (this is fantastic).

Prices are very high for the room, I have stayed in lots of hotels and for this amount I expected a room with some space and more to it than a shoe shine kit and safe. It was hard to spend anytime in the room and gettign showered and dressed was a pain

Plenty of local restaurants, locals vdery friendly, hotel staff very good, especially at breakfast.

Room Tip: Ask about the size before you book

This is a small hotel, right on the harbour. Cafes and restaurants line the harbourside so dinner with plenty of fresh local fish is only a few steps away. Rooms are spotlessly clean and pleasant. We paid just a little extra for a superior room which gave us more space and extras such as a comfortable sofa and additional toilet. Breakfast served on the terrace was excellent. Above all it is the staff who make this place so good. They are friendly, anxious to help, always on hand, and always cheerful.
And yes, the church bells do chime briefly from 5am but windows are double-glazed and earplugs are provided in your bedside drawer. We were not woken by the the bells once. We loved staying here and would certainly go back.

Room Tip: Pay a little extra for a superior room for that bit of extra space.

I stayed here for two nights. Staff were wonderful and the hotel is located in the very heart of the town next to the church. It is a very stylish, refined hotel that did feel that little bit more 'special' than 'chain type' hotels. My one criticism is that the room I was given was VERY small. There was just enough room to walk around the bed. If I had been staying here longer than two nights it would have become quite claustrophobic.

A delightful small hotel right on the harbourside. Extremely comfortable rooms and welcoming and knowledgeable staff. Good buffet breakfast featuring Istrian specialities. OK the bells do chime from 5am but the hotel thoughtfully provide a pair of earplugs for each guest - but, if you drink a couple of slivovtzes before retiring, you'll sleep right through.

Room Tip: Ignore the bell haters and go for a front room - the view is great
