Our stay at the apartment was great! Mladen and his wife are the nicest people. The cooked a full meal for us the day we arrived and we had drinks and breakfast with them several days. They also took us to see the small picturesque towns nearby and helped us with everything we wanted to know about things to do in Istria. Staying at this apartment will give you a real authentic local experience of Istria.
The apartment has a pool and everything you need; it is situated in a small town on the hills in the middle of Istria. You need a car to move around the peninsula anyway so the location doesn't matter at all and you can go into every direction from there. You might have some difficulty to find the village the first time you arrive so contact Mladen about it before.
Would definitely stay there again!
