Client Reviews for Maya


Based on this and previous villa bookings you offer great quality villas consistently. We will use you again as a result. Thank you for another great villa.

This was the 4th consecutive year that we have used Vintage Travel and yet again we were totally thrilled by the excellent service and the wonderful property. We have previously visited Spain twice and Italy once and this time we tried Croatia. We stayed in Maya, Istria and we are surprised that this was not one of your featured properties for this area. It surpassed our expectations in every way - lovely spacious house, extremely well equipped, lovely size pool and garden and in a fabulous and quiet location. As before directions to the property were spot on and all the information sent to us by Vintage Travel was extremely useful. The house manager Caroline, although we didn't meet her, was so helpful with some local information that we wanted - routes to hilltop villages and local market times and restaurants etc. She gets 10 out of 10 for her helpfulness and knowledge. It was a really stunning area and we totally fell in love with it. There was so much to do and see - we like exploring - from the pretty coastal towns steeped in history to the inland hill villages and even our tiny local village had an incredible history and old buildings. The local food is superb and we thought the Croatians absolutely delightful. I really couldn't recommend the area highly enough as a lovely place to visit. And I also highly recommend Vintage Travel - we will definitely be using you again. Thank you.

We have been travelling with you for many years... this must be around the 20th time we reckon. Consistent good service and good villas in great locations. Thank you.

We all had a brilliant time at Casa Maya. There is a brilliant pizza place called San Lorenzo in Sveti Lovrec and a good Croatian style restaurant which were both a good evening meal. The beaches at Cape Kamenjak are very nice, but get there early. Rovinj is very good but go either late in the evening or early in the morning to get parking spaces close to the town. Motovun is great, as is Hum, the smallest town in the world. There is very good ice cream along the seafront at Vsar and also in Rovinj. We had a great time and I hope we can come here again!

A lovely relaxing holiday with amazing weather. Had a spectacular thunder storm last night which lasted hours. Pool took quite a lot of cleaning at least twice a day. At Vsar we went to Konoba Gradina Grill on the way, and the staff were very friendly. Nearly all the towns have a Lidl on the outskirts e.g. Porec, Vsar, Rovinj and Pula. There is a little shop in Sveti Lovrec but it closes at 12 on Sundays. It is worth driving out to Motovun as very different from this area and lots of mountains. You have to park at the bottom of the town and walk up.

Thank you very much for your comments - the issue with the pool cleaning has now been rectified for the 2017 season.
Lovely villa - very spacious. Pool needs regular cleaning - filter system not adequate. Drove up east Coast from Brestova, lovely scenery but towns were very busy. Hills towns of Groznjan and Motovun were gorgeous and Konoba Mondo in Motovun is excellent and good service. Rovinj is well worth visitng, live jazz this week. Local pizza restaurant in Sv. Lovrec is simple but good food and service. Pula amphitheatre was very impressive. A lovely holiday, but a shame the weather turned poor for the last few days.

Thank you very much for your comments about Casa Maya. We have now rectified the issue with the pool filter and the pool will be kept clean throughout the 2017 season.
We have had a wonderful week at Casa Maya. Rovinj has to be one of the loveliest towns we have visited in the med. We did a fabulous boat trip with "Rent a boat" which took us out for the day snorkeling, swimming and sight-seeing. We went out with them again one evening from 7:30-9:30 for sunset and to see dolphins. We also spend a day on Cres island (just pitch up at the ferry at Brestova and it takes 15 minutes) which was a long day but worth it for the stunning scenery. We have enjoyed the boiling hot weather and relaxing by the pool - all in all a lovely holiday.

Enjoyed the peacefulness of Marfardini. The villa is very comfortable and the pool is great fun. We have enjoyed visiting Porec, Premantura and took a trip to Cres that was worth the time and effort. San Lorenzo's in Sveti Lovrec has great pizzas, and all the food we have had has been delicious. The Croatian people we have met have been kind, fun and caring.

We have enjoyed glorious weather throughout our visit, 30 degrees + at times so the pool has been most welcome and used everyday. We have visited Porec, Rovinj, Novigrad, and Labin. We have enjoyed the variety of restaurants and activities in the area such as Dinopark.

We've had a very relaxing week - the villa is lovely and Istria is beautiful. We've discovered some great places such as Rovinj, which is a lovely place to wander around with plenty of good restaurants and especially great if you like fish. Buje, Vsar, Goznjan, Novigrad and Porec are all worth visiting and shopping for a while. Groznjan has lots of small arty shops and studios. We had excellent meals at Konoba Nono (just outside Umag) and the restaurant at Danijeli. The restaurant San Lorenzo in Sveti Lovrec is also great - definitely recommend the sea bass. All in all we've had a lovely holiday.
