About the property

Villa Benić is perfect for accommodating two to three families with children. It is located in a peaceful and natural environment, with a large fenced yard, lots of natural shade, a children's playground and separate facilities that guarantee privacy. It is not suitable for celebrations, hen and stag parties and large and loud gatherings.

The house is divided into two accommodation units; a single-storey and a two-storey unit with a common yard. Each features a kitchen, living room and bathroom, as well as two bedrooms that can accommodate up to four people. One of the units also offers two additional extra beds (sofa beds). Cot bed is available upon request. This way each family has its own privacy. The house also features a pool house, perfect for socializing, dinners and relaxation by the pool. The entire property is at your disposal

All facilities are fully equipped with air conditioning, TV, household appliances, dishes, cutlery, bed linen, towels and toiletries.

The spacious garden is divided into several connected zones, making it easy to keep an eye on the little ones playing carefree in their corner. You will most probably prefer the pool with cosy sun loungers on the sunny part and lounge area on the covered part of the terrace, where you can relax with your favourite music, an interesting book and a glass of superb Istrian wine. If you’re looking for some privacy, you can retreat to the fenced terrace with a garden swing, perfect for romantic relaxation. Summer is also perfect for outdoor grilling. You can prepare tasty meals on a big wood and coal grill, fully equipped with all grilling tools.

NEW: You can now enjoy heated pool even in spring and autumn.

Besides the pool, the young ones will also enjoy the playground - featuring a slide & swing tower - in the natural shade of old trees.

Your car will also be well taken care of – there are two parking spots in a fenced-in area at your disposal.

Self-check-in enabled.

Zeker aan te raden! Family Annick / Belvilla / Jul 2022

Villa Benić

Zeer ruime vakantiewoning voor twee gezinnen. Bij aankomst aangenaam verrast. Woning was zeer schoon en alles was voorhanden. Gaande van toiletpapier tot afwasmiddel, wasmiddel, zout, peper, ... Zwembad ook groot genoeg en proper onderhouden. Aangenaam contact met eigenaars tijdens het verblijf. Zeker aan te raden!

Highly recommend Elise S. Crane (USA) / Aug 2021

Villa Benić

Our extended family group of eight absolutely loved our 5-day stay at Villa Bencic and hope to return someday. Marijeta was incredibly communicative from the very first booking inquiry I sent - which was at the recommendation of a friend who had also stayed at Villa Benic with a large group and loved it - and she was so attentive to our every need. She organized bike rentals for our visiting family members and we had some unforgettable rides through the gorgeous countryside surrounding the house. It really is perfectly located and within a 45-minute drive of all of Istria’s most wonderful destinations. We took day trips to Rovinj, Pula, Motovun, and the Brijuni Islands, and also had plenty of time to just relax by the wonderful pool. Highly recommend.

The Pool and Lounge area was a big plus Christoph / AIRBNB / Jul 2020

Villa Benić

As a group of 10 guys we had a perfect stay in the Villa Benic. We were missing nothing, everything was given. Especially the big grill was used a couple times from us. Also the Pool and Lounge area was a big plus. We definitely recommend the Villa and would come for sure again.

Ideale vertrekplaats dus. Wij gaan zeker nog eens terug. Mr Hermans / Belvilla / Jul 2019

Villa Benić

De huiseigenaar verwelkomde ons zeer hartelijk. Het zijn zeer vriendelijke mensen. Wij voelden ons meteen op ons gemak. Ze liet ons de mooie accommodatie zien en gaf ook wat tips wat er in de buurt allemaal te bezichtigen valt. Als er iets is kan je hen altijd contacteren. Het huisje ligt in een zeer rustige omgeving wat voor ons een pluspunt is. Alles is wel kort in de buurt. Voor ons een ideale plaats om tot rust te komen en als we ergens naar toe wilden konden we alle richtingen uit. Wij zijn tijdens ons verblijf in het noorden, zuiden, oosten en westen van Istrië geweest. Ideale vertrekplaats dus. Wij gaan zeker nog eens terug.

We had an amazing stay at Villa Benic and would definitely return again! Ilsa (UK / Airbnb) / Jun 2019

Villa Benić

As a group of 8, the property was the perfect size as we could use the pool house solely for cooking and eating, without needing to use up the space sleeping extra people on the sofa bed. It was lovely to have a dedicated communal space and a table large enough for us all to sit around. The pool, sun loungers and BBQ, as well as the additional outside seating made it a joy to be outdoors, which we did as much as possible while at the property. Marijeita, who managed our check in to the house etc., was an absolute angel. When our flight was delayed she came to greet us at the airport to make checking in easier, and given that we were landing late at night she even went to the supermarket for us so that we would have a few groceries in the house for breakfast the following morning. She could not have been more friendly and communicative, and really helped us with her quick responses to questions and willingness to go the extra mile! A hire car is an absolute must - about 30 mins drive into Pula town and between (Phone number hidden by Airbnb) minutes for various well-known beaches in the area. The house is super easy to find using (Hidden by Airbnb) maps etc., we had no problem finding it in the middle of the night.

Our party of 10 with 6 children ages 5-15 stayed here for 2 nights in June 2018 Alyson (Airbnb) / Jun 2018

Villa Benić

Our party of 10 with 6 children ages 5-15 stayed here for 2 nights in June 2018. We highly recommend it! It was hard to tear ourselves away from the pool, swings, small slide, and covered porch areas to go sightseeing. For a party of 10, having 3 showers and toilets, as well as a full-size kitchen and eating area worked very well. The owner met us and responded quickly to anything that came up. The villa is clean, up-to-date, has reliable appliances, and is so, so restful, with everyone having plenty of room to themselves. Our kids were happy that 4 of the beds were singles in Apartment #2. The pool is about 4 ft deep, but large enough for our number of kids to have a lot of fun. (The littlest used her floaties.) The location is excellent: 30 or so minutes to most Istria attractions. We visited Pula's arena, Porec's boardwalk and ancient basilica, and Motovun. (We had been to Rovinj before.) We ran out of time for seeing as much as we would have liked, but squeezed in the Pazin ziplines which were very affordable compared to USA zip lines, and our 5-year-old was thrilled to join the big kids in that big adventure. The ziplines over the canyon are really extraordinary! The owner recommended a pizza place in Zminj that was excellent (but just note that it doesn't open until 2pm) and reasonably priced. I would love to go back. Thank you, Marijeta and Kristina, for a lovely time.

Spent a week in a very nice villa in Gradisce. Jussi (Airbnb) / Jul 2017

Villa Benić

Spent a week in a very nice villa in Gradisce. Location was perfect for us - we saw almost every direction from Istria. 15-30km away from the Villa you will get east-, south-, or west coast. Own car is good to have off course. Marijeta was really good host for us. We got good information what to see and do. Especially tips we got from medieval castle show in svetvincenat and amazing zip-lines in Pazinska-jama as well. The villa itself was fully equipped and very clean. Especially the pool was the place our kids spent most of their time. I really recommend this Villa - especially families with kids!

Villa Benić

Fantastic house with nice swimming pool - located in rural area with sounds from donkeys, dogs and farmers traffic. Authentic experience with few tourists. Very good communication with Kristina and Marijeta.

Marijeta was a wonderful host. William (Airbnb) / Jul 2016

Villa Benić

Marijeta was a wonderful host. She helped us find our way when we were lost. She provided great information when we arrived and was very helpful in pointing out local attractions. The house was beautiful, and easily fit four adults, two teenagers, and four children. Everything was provided, including a coffee pot and ironing board. We truly enjoyed our stay. The location was perfect- just enough outside of the tourist areas to be relaxing, but not too far to drive to the beaches.

Have just returned from 10 days staying at this amazing property. Diane (Airbnb) / Aug 2015

Villa Benić

Have just returned from 10 days staying at this amazing property. The accommodation is lovely and clean and well appointed. We had plenty of room and everything we could ask for. The property itself despite being in a rural location has neighbours but it is still peaceful. the buildings are totally surrounded for privacy and the pool is a real bonus which was much needed in the high temperatures of August! Marijeta was a very helpful host as was her husband who took us on an amazing boat trip, stopping off for a swim away from crowds when we asked, also showing us the coast around the area of Lijon. Nothing is too much trouble for Marijeta and she has made the property very comfortable with lots of nice touches like shower gel, kitchen cleaning liquids etc, loo rolls and a few items in the fridge to start you off, very welcome after travelling to get there! The location is ideal for touring the whole of the Istrian peninsula (a car is essential!) we enjoyed eating in nearby Zminj where there is also a bakery and supermarket! We toured a lot of the area even getting as far as Crikvenica in the East. Pula is well worth a visit (amphitheate!) as is Rovinj, and the Bujoni Islands. All in all this property is really lovely, plenty of space for a family of five adults comfortably with both private space and communal, studio area! Highly recommended!!:)

Villa Benić is a renovated farmstead with two spacious apartments... Greben (Airbnb) / Aug 2015

Villa Benić

Villa Benić is a renovated farmstead with two spacious apartments and a very nice communal area; a very comfortable house to spend your holiday. The location is wonderful - as long as you have transportation - as you can get pretty much anywhere in Istria within 30-45 minutes (by car). Both the west and the east coast hosts lovely beaches, and you're close to Pazin with its zipline, 30 minutes away from Pula with its amazing colosseum, as well as the aesthetically beautiful hilltop villages of Groznjan and Motovun, and of course 25 minutes from Rovinj. The villa itself is rustic and lies in a quiet village near Zminj (not a town that has much going for it, though). We were able to see pretty much all of Istria that we were interested in within the two weeks of our stay, and relax and hang out by the pool as well. Speaking of which, the pool is a very nice touch, especially in the summer, as it was between 35 and 45 degrees our entire stay, so it was lovely to be able to jump in and cool off.

Communication and maintenance by the owner and her husband is just fantastic. The English of the responsive and friendly couple is excellent. They worked hard to make sure our stay was perfect, and therefore it was! They were always available for questions and the pool was clean and regularly maintained. All we had to do was call and they'd drop by to clean the pool. Excellent for young children, though sadly the pool is over 1 meter deep everywhere, making it difficult for small children to stand.

The owners also offered us the opportunity to go out on their boat, and we had a wonderful excursion around the islands near Pula. Definitely worthwhile!

Final thoughts: highly recommended!
