We were lucky enough to be invited to a fabulous wedding in beautiful Rovinj and searched for accommodation that would accommodate us, parents, brothers, sisters, kids - lots of us.
We were lucky to find Villa Lara Rovinj in Rovinjsko Selo, a brand new villa just a short drive from Rovinj itself. After a traumatic journey we were warmly welcomed by the cleaning staff as we were a little early but as we were the first car to arrive it was great to be able to explore and select bedrooms!
The Villa was spacious enough to accommodate a total of 14 of us... 9 adults, 4 kids and a baby. There were plenty of bathrooms (most important when in a large group) and the bedrooms were of a generous size, well air conditioned and had enough wardrobe space.
The interior kitchen is a little small considering how many of us there were to prepare for but, to be honest, when we were not eating out in Rovinj (think a clean Venice without the canals), we were mainly using the barbecue. One point - there was no kettle. Us Brits like TEA in the morning!
We didn't use the lounge (huge) at all as the weather was amazing.
The garden is enormous. We probably selected this villa because we thought the kids would love running around. Truthfully, the pool was their favourite bit though. They were never out of it. It was large and very clean - even our baby was happy to float around in the shallow bit (she wasn't quite 1 at the time).
Finally, whenever we had questions, Danilo - the owner - was permanently on his email to answer them and was even proactive by giving us little hints about where to go/what to see etc.
We stay in large houses every year as a family and this is definitely the most accommodating one yet.
Get also strongly recommend the local refreshments - don't buy the imported stuff, buy local - cheap and very welcome about 3pm on a summer afternoon by the cool pool.
