Check out review of Villa Tona and Istria on Daily Mail!
Quite simply the best villa we have stayed in in the past 10 years. Villa Tonini is a fantastic find. We were two families, each of two adults and two teenagers. We spent a week here, after a first week further to the south near Premantura. The week at Villa Tonini, however was the best. The property itself was absolutely stunning having been completed to the highest of standards. Plenty of room both inside and out, a great swimming pool and a pool (snooker not swimming) room which was well used! We spent days in the pool and evenings on the terrace watching the sun go down. All rooms had air conditioning, which was good as temperatures during our stay were between 35 and 40 degrees! Nearby was a great restaurant called the Borgonja in the lovely settlement of Visnjan- just 5 minutes away. The bigger settlement of Porec is lovely and the mountain village of Grosjan is unmissable – all Medieval streets will artist shops and beautiful cafe- bars with stunning views. From this great villa you can easily visit the south of Istria (Pula, etc) and the north, up to the Italian and Slovenian borders. All in all a great location and easy to get to numerous of Istria beaches. Whilst mostly stone (not sand) don’t let this put you off. Our children spent hours rock pooling, swimming and sun bathing. Last, but not least, the property’s owners Suzanna and Sandy were just great. Always helpful and going that extra mile to ensure our enjoyment and relaxation. Thanks so much to you both for making our holiday in your beautiful villa exceptional. We fully recommend it and hope to be back soon.– Andy, Penny, Sasha, Willow, Martin, Helen, Chloe and Amelia from England
During our vacation, we had the best experiences and a wonderful stay! We stayed in Villa Tona for almost two weeks. It was our first time in Croatia, thus we needed some tips to get to know the nicest spots, restaurants, beaches etc. Marco helped us in advance and recommended some things. When arriving, Marcos mother showed us the villa and told us the historical side of the house and we were totally amazed! The villa is modern, fully equipped, and fully means fully – from an iron to towels in every size. We felt like kings and queens during our stay. The pool is huge enough for a family and very clean like the rest of the house. Every room has its own highlight and we felt very comfortable and cozy. When it was time to leave we were very sad to leave this beautiful place. So we absolutely recommend Villa Tona and the beautiful landscape in and around Istria! Thanks Marco and family for having us! We will definitely come back!!Jana with her family from Germany on AirBnb, September 2016
Villa Tona was the most beautiful house I have ever seen in my life and it was one of the best vacations I have ever spent. It is well and calmly situated. And it absolutely looks like it can be seen on the photos. We were very kindly and warmly welcomed by Susi and would like to thank the whole family for this unique experience.Isabel from Germany, August 2016
Die Villa Tonini Dvori ist ein absoluter Traum. Es gibt nichts auf das man hier verzichten muß. Die Ausstattung ist hervorragend. Der ursprüngliche Stil des Hauses wurde mit ganz viel Liebe zum Detail und großem Aufwand bei der Restauration wiederhergestellt. Die Räume sind sehr großzügig und für 8 Personen ist dieses Haus perfekt. Der Pool ist vor allem bei Kindern natürlich das Highlight. Auch ist es sehr ruhig gelegen und trotzdem ist man innerhalb kürzester Zeit in Porec. In Visnjan, einem sehr netten kleinen Ort nur 5 Minuten entfernt, findet man zwei sehr gute Pizzerias sowie Supermarkt und Bäckerei. Wir würden dieses Haus sofort wieder mieten!– Nicole from Germany, June 2017
