Villa Barbara is a beautiful, traditional stone house equipped with 21st century amenities. We very much enjoyed the pool and the peaceful rustic elegance of the surroundings. Apart from the wonderful villages in the neighborhood, one can get to the pristine beaches of Porec in approximately 20 minutes. Classic villa which you won't soon forget. Hvala!

Management response:
