This is the perfect romantic hide -away with the most spectacular view ever ( in Croatia). The hotel is a boutique one personalized with small details provided by the owner, with comfortable and rather big rooms and beds you can really sleep in. Some of the balconies are shared with other room, separated by a textile paravan which doesn't leave...

All is exactly how you write except of the price on account of restaurant.:) Istrian pršut- hand cut is 80,00kn - Istarski domaći ...pršut -you cant see all words on bill /pršut is missing.. Bread with olive oil is 25,00kn./ Domaći kruh sa masl.uljem! So 80kn is one portion of istrian pršut, not price of...

This hotel/restaurant was recommended to us by vriend who were here before. The location of the restaurant is absolutely stunning ! Villa Stefanija is located on top of a hill overlooking a beautiful bay.

If you are looking for a villa hotel or top notch B&B in Istria and want to stay outside of the city, this is the place to stay. It is a short drive from most of the attractions but offers the tranquillity and privacy. This is not the most astonishing B&B or Villa that I have stayed, but looking at...

Nice, little hotel with a superb view and a delicious kitchen. Large rooms, very clean on arrival. We would have appreciated cleaning a little the bathroom during our stay (sink, shower), but that was not a real issue. What we've found very disturbing is the shared balcony. At one point we were laying in bed in the morning and suddenly...

The location is perfect, hotel is wonderful and the owner and staff are the nicest, most attentive people you could ever wish for. We had the beautiful pool to ourselves most days, with the coast only a short distance away. We will definitely visit again.

We came here twice whilst staying at Barban. Friendly helpful staff, beautiful seating area outside with just an amazing view. The food was beautifully fresh and well presented. Dogs seem to be more accepted over there with the owners dog wandering around the tables which you wouldn't find in a fine dining restaurant in the UK, but that said it...

So, the view and location is great. The staff also. But they offer this wellness center where the jacuzzi and the sauna don't work, actually it's a storeroom. The lady that does the massage is a waitress and apparently you can use the air conditioning when it's not overheated (this is what we were told but we found out that...

Villa Stefanija is pamperig pure. A great view, restaurant at the pool with local dishes and really friendly service. The owner is able to create a high class but relaxed atmosphere.
