Nine new two-storey villas built with local stone in the traditional village style. Charming well-balanced facades are enhanced with blue, pale green or traditional brown shutters, a nice garden, a pool and a private sunbathing area. Inside, the villas are cosy, light and bright, with a pleasant beach themed decor of blues, creams and whites with touches of sunshine yellow which predominate in these relaxing villas.
Eight of the villas are three bedoom and one has four bedrooms. Nestling at the edge of a fishing village, a short stroll to a local cafe and shop, the Zephyra villas fit in well with the Mediterranean countryside. Take a leisurely 25-30 minute walk to a long sandy beach in Medulin, or just a few minutes drive by car. There you can stop off and pick-up fantastic ice-cream, buy some fresh rolls from the bakery, then figs and parma ham, and you are all set for a beach picnic.
If you love water sports, you are in the right place: wind surfing, scuba diving, kayaking and boating are available locally. You are also close to a horse riding ranch, country bike paths, tennnis courts, wellness centre and a gym. The local food is great and it is a child-friendly place, and also good for adults and teenagers. On top of that the nearby town of Pula has the 6th largest Roman amphitheatre in the world. The local airport, Pula, is just 15 minutes drive away, so these villas combine all the comforts of a good holiday, great location, great accommodation, close to the beach and transport links.

We usually went to the Maticev Pisak beach and it was very nice with plenty of shade and delicious simple food.

Villa Zephyra - The villa was wonderful ...
The villa was wonderful - new, clean, spacious with everything you could need. The communication prior to arrival was seamless and Croatian Villa Holidays assisted with suggestions in the local area. We would definitely stay again!

Villa Zadie was beautiful.
The villa we stayed in (Villa Zadie) was beautiful. We loved the floor plan, which made the house feel quite spacious. It was decorated very well and had most of the items we needed. The kitchen, however, could use more items, even for a short stay. The bathrooms exceeded expectations--well-laid out and elegant.
WiFi signal did not carry upstairs, unfortunately. An extender should be considered so WiFi can be used on both floors.
The villas themselves were located in Liznjan, which was very close to Pula and Medulin. However, it was quite
difficult to find the villas. I realize this is complicated by the addressing system in Croatia, but they are not easily located. We found the beach area to be overcrowded, so we relied on the pool to cool off.

Response from Croatian Villa Holidays:
Janet, thanks for your feedback.
As you know we do provide quite detailed directions to the villa but the route through the back streets of the village is complicated. As for beaches we did supply directions to several beaches around Liznjan bay that can only be reached by farm tracks and are very much quieter and a complete contrast to the busy beach in Medulin. These certainly are our favourite beaches.
Villa Zinnia - Clean and plenty of space.
Clean and plenty of space. Would have liked a slightly larger and warmer pool but perfectly adequate.
Village and nearby towns plenty to enjoy.

Villa Zephyra in Liznjan is a perfect place for holidays.
Villa Zephyra in Liznjan is a perfect place for holidays. The building itself and its interior design is very nice. The rooms are comfortable, the kitchen is well equipped. We were also very pleased for pet-friendliness!
Liznjan is a nice village, the house is close to its centre. There is a beach 5-6 mintues drive from the house where we also found a very nice place for eating simple, nice food: this is Eden buffet.
Janina K. (Budapest, Hungary) 21/08/2016
... we had a good stay
Just to say we had a good stay at the Zephyra villa Zadie, and enjoyed Croatia.

Villa Zelda - the most wonderful holiday
I would just like to say that my family and I had the most wonderful holiday in your lovely villa in Liznjan. Everything was perfect.

Villa Zinnia was 'as new', well equipped and really comfortable ...
Villa Zinnia was 'as new', well equipped and really comfortable for 6 of us. The private pool and garden, were lovely, albeit not particularly well laid out making cooking and dining outside a little disjointed. The flexibility the owners showed in accommodating non standard arrival and departures was a major plus.
We didn't do a lot in Ližnjan itself, but it was an easy taxi transfer from Pula airport and a convenient base. I'd definitely recommend some form of transport and we hired bikes from Medulin and used the occasional local taxi, which were good value. The Medulin/Pula towns are very 'touristy', with the usual pros and cons that that brings. We found some good restaurants but also some average ones. Out of the towns the coastline around the Peninsula, is spectacular and we explored both by bike and by hiring a boat, which I'd highly recommend.

Clean, high quality, modern, good private space ...
Clean, high quality, modern, good private space despite being in a complex of ten or so villas.
Area is good for being able to escape away from the intense tourist spots but is within good striking distance of them as well. Roads in the village to the villa are VERY narrow so careful driving is a must!

Beautiful house! Can absolutely be recommended.
Beautiful house! 3 big bedrooms and 1 smaller, great kitchen and dining room. Clean and fresh! Great pool & dining area outside + several terraces. Quiet and safe area. Nice host. We were 6 adults staying, but house is big enough for 8 adults. Can absolutely be recommended.
A bit far from shops and restaurants. About 2km to Medulin. Walking distance to small grocery shop, but with taxi no problem to get to Pula in 15 minutes . Close to airport.
