GUEST REVIEWS

Full of character, lovely pool

Very well equipped and full of character. Suited the age ranges in our party from young children to grandparents. Lovely pool and outdoor areas.

A good nearby town, but you did really need a car for day to day access, as expected. Great local wines and trip to a winery was a very good experience.

A place for keen cooks in a quiet rural setting

The villa was pretty perfect for us. The quiet rural setting suited us and there was plenty of space for us all. The owner's son was excellent in terms of answering questions and recommending restaurants etc. I am a keen cook and massively enjoyed the outside kitchen and equipment available. The owner's recipe book of Croatian cuisine was a gift to us on our departure which was a fantastic touch. I think you could market the property much more as a place for keen cooks as not only was the property excellent in terms of facilities, the village shops were surprisingly great for ingredients (I got fresh yeast for my pizza bases!) and we went to a regional pasta festival on our last night - in the village which was a lovely end to our week.

My brother and family were across from New Zealand and went on the trip with us so I wanted to get it right which I think I did.

Just returned from a week at Fig Tree Farmhouse. What a comfortable and beautiful house; the pictures do not do the property justice. We were delighted to find that the farmhouse had been newly renovated to a very high whilst still retaining its original features and charm. Each room was clean and beautifully finished, the largest bedroom which was contained in a seperate outhouse included a sauna and jacuzzi which was a firm favourite with all the family.

The jewel in this property's crown is the outdoor eating area. A large covered dining area and fireplace made family meal times in the evening a real pleasure. Lit by candlelight we ate and chatted over glasses of Istrian wine poured into the 'goldfish bowl' wine glasses provided and wrapped ourselves in cosy blankets. Only downside were the flies which seemed to gather in the hot afternoons although mosquitoes were virtually non existent.

House owned by the lovely Ivan and Silvano who could not do enough to assist us on our trip. We squeezed cycling, horse riding, 2 meals out, a trip to the red islands and Venice into 1 week! They were so kind and accommodating.

Would definitely return!
