This is just a perfect Villa. The owners were so helpful and couldn't have done more for us. The location is idyllic, so peaceful, but you really must have a car, nowhere is within walking distance. However,the location James have is a little misleading, as it is in Punta, not Grozjan.
It is well placed for getting around Istria, and the roads are very easy to drive on.
We would highly recommend this villa, and would return.

The setting is stunning, with panoramic views, especially from the first floor terrace. We loved the area, with its picturesque medieval hilltop towns, great food and not too crowded. The villa was spacious and comfortable, the games room was a lovely bonus (although many of the darts need to be replaced). The kitchen is not designed for much if any cooking which is a shame - more work surfaces, sharper knives, new saucepans, a grill and toaster would make such a difference. It was lovely to have two bikes available and the pool was great. We managed with the handheld showers over the baths, but agree with previous reviewers that at least one proper shower would be expected across 4 bathrooms.

Family (the eldest child is at school)
Beautiful quiet villa in a rural setting, pool overlooks olive groves and vineyards, with the sea in the distance. Car essential, but not far to drive to the nearest town for supermarkets/restaurants, or to the coast. Plenty to see and do in the area, including water-parks. We had a lovely family holiday.

The location is beautiful: tranquil with stunning views. The outside space is nice but there is little to no shade around the pool (which is quite small) and only one sun umbrella for 6 sun loungers - all of which are quite tatty. Plus, the outside table only seats 4 which, for a 6 person villa, isn't great.
The villa itself is nicely laid out and a good size (except the games room, which is fun to have but quite small) but has two major drawbacks:
Firstly with 4 bathrooms - 3 ensuite and one on the ground floor - it is crazy not to have any proper shower. The baths all have a combination tap with hand-held shower, which is halfway down one side instead of at the end, so it's impossible to use without flooding the floor, even though there's a shower screen.
Secondly, the kitchen is terrible. There is nowhere to store food except in the fridge (which is a good size) so things like tea bags and cooking oil are just out on whatever surface you can find. As the only worktop is about 30cm wide between the sink and the stovetop this is an issue. Also there are no sharp knives at all, no oven gloves, and no kitchen roll holder.
It would have been nice to have a visitors' book so people could leave info / hints on where the best restaurants, beaches etc. are.
Finally - be warned! - there are no insect screens and the mosquitos are really, really vicious.
All this might sound negative but overall we had a really great time and without these niggles it would have been excellent.

Beautifully appointed villa with a fabulous view. The games room is an added bonus. The pool was delightfully refreshing and the BBQ great for relaxed evenings around the poolside. (Apart for the mozzies!)
