Client Reviews for Bolara


Oh my!...the views, the space, the light, the wildlife, the woods, the tranquility...did I mention the views! Can't wait to return - we loved it! Thank you to the owner.
Mr & Mrs Turner-Hulme


Wow! We've had a brilliant 2 weeks here in this Istrian haven. We love the villa, the owners have been so kind and helpful...This is our first visit to Croatia and we love Istria, very Italian feel, have heard hardly any English voices! We hope to return. Bolara is without doubt the most lovely place we've stayed. The wine and olive oil are delicious too. Thank you!
Mr & Mrs Lomas


We had lots of plans to do so many things...that was until we got here and started to relax and then two weeks just flew by. Superb location, wonderful house, thoughtful owner who took care of everything, great food (especially Lena's olive oil and wine). We visited lots of restaurants and never had a bad meal. Thanks for the peace and tranquility. We hope to be back before too long.
Mr & Mrs Henson


We had seen photos of the villa but they did not do it justice. It is a beautiful place in a breathtaking setting which is probably why we didn't wander very far. Ervin has been very accommodating and friendly. Thank you Ervin and Lena we hope to return.
Mr & Mrs Caton


A lovely stay at Bolara thanks to Ervin's kind attention. The best place is by the pool with a glass of local wine enjoying the stunning views. We have had a wonderful relaxing time in picturesque surroundings. The Istrian people are very friendly and welcoming.

We took a bit of a chance booking the last week of the season, as we weren't sure what the weather would be like, or what would be open. It turned out to be a great choice, as with the exception of one rainy day the weather was blissful. Istria is breathtakingly beautiful at this time of year. The trees throughout the Mirna valley are turning red and yellow and driving up the winding roads to the hilltop villages is absolutely spectacular. For most of the week we've just sat and read and taken in the view. We came here to relax and we couldn't have chosen better. Ervin has been an extremely attentive host, ensuring everything is perfect. Thank you for creating such a perfect place to escape to.

The owner, Ervin, was very helpful and informative and albeit that we were 1.5 hours late, due to a flight delay, was waiting for us when we arrived at 11.00pm. The welcome pack was excellent and contained an excellent variety of beverages and food. Every need was catered for including a complementary bottle of wine and mid week check and towel change. All in all an excellent and beautifully secluded villa and a romantic location for couples.

We have had a lovely week at Bolara. This was our first time visiting Croatia, and we will definitely be back. On recommendation from Ervin and other tourists, we ate at Santa Marina restaurant. It doesn't look much from the outside, but the food was delicious. We also ate at Basita in Grozjnan, again very good. The villa itself had all the amenities we required and Lina came to clean once during the week we were here. Overall a lovely break and sad to leave.

Croatia is a wonderful destination, this is the first time we visited and were very impressed we would love to go back in a couple of years.

As all previous tenants have indicated, Bolara is indeed a very special villa. It is not just the private and tranquil location, it is also the special touches that Ervin has brought to his creation. We noted that even the kitchen sink had a carefully constructed carving! Ervin made us feel very welcome.
