GUEST BOOK - Villa Cissa


Villa Cissa is a comfortable and immaculate base from which to explore Rovinj. We have never returned to the same holiday location twice but we honestly believe we will be back here again.

Many thanks for the lovely welcome.

Sue and Ian Johnston, Worcestershire, England


It was a pleasure to meet you and stay in your spectacular apartment at Villa Cissa! My family and I cannot believe such a lovely place as Rovinj still exists, almost as if in a time capsule. We immensely enjoyed our time in Rovinj, we loved the fact that we were staying in the heart of the ‘old city’ that really gave our stay a special feeling. We will definitely be returning to Rovinj, and will take your advice and stay at least 7 days next time. Again, Thank You, your apartment was great for us, and I hope to meet you again in the future.

Thanks to my host for a great stay at Villa Cissa! The apartment is perfectly comfortable – spacious, modern and well-appointed … not to mention wonderfully located in the heart of Rovinj. But even better, my host is the perfect host – nice, patient, informative and fascinating to talk with. If every town in Croatia had four or five hosts like this, my job would be much easier!

It’s the 12th consecutive year for us at Villa Cissa and every time we come for our holiday in Rovinj we find in this apartment something different and something new. Rovinj is a beautiful town and our host is full of ideas and attention for his guests. Thanks a lot for another two fantastic weeks!

We received a letter this morning from your recent guest who was very happy with the service. They rated the location, cleanliness, and suitability to requirements, comfort, décor and value for money as excellent. They said you popped in every now and again to check everything was OK. They said you were very helpful. They were impressed with Croatia – excellent food and local wine was good.

Uživali smo u prelepom Rovinju. Molimo Vas prenesite naše pozdrave taksisti koji nas je vozio kao i nadasve simpatičnom osoblju kafića u našoj ulici! Još jednom, hvala Vam puno za sve. Bilo nam je neobično lepo u Vašem gradu i izuzetno drago upoznati Vas lično. Nadamo se svakako da se uskoro vidimo ponovo, što pre.

We have very happy memories of our holiday in Rovinj. The old town was beautiful and so full of character. Narrow streets bustling with life. Also loved the fresh fruit at the market. Weather was gorgeous, the townsfolk were amazingly friendly and the views were stunning.

We were delighted with Villa Cissa. Situated right in the heart of the old town, it is the perfect spot and we even had a lovely pleasant bar right on our doorstep! The apartment was lovely – very spacious, full of character and yet modern at the same time, and in immaculate condition.

We really enjoyed our stay at Villa Cissa and have no hesitation in recommending it to family and friends. I hope that we will be able to come back and enjoy your hospitality again.

Our stay was fantastic. We really loved the town, atmosphere, and people in Croatia. For a long weekend, it was exactly what we wanted although we really wished we could have stayed longer. Our stay in your apartment was very nice and we would not hesitate to stay there again in the future. We really loved our stay at your place and appreciated your hospitality and kindness.

We have spent wonderful days in Rovinj. In Villa Cissa we had exactly what we expected based on information provided on the website.

The location is perfect, in the very heart of historical old town of Rovinj. The room is choicely furnished, a well-equipped kitchen and small bathroom with fine scented towels. The air-condition is maybe practical but unnecessary thanks to the natural cooling effect of the stonewalls.

Overall, it was perfect! I could recommend such hospitality to all of my friends if they would like to spend romantic days in a wonderful town.

Our stay in Rovinj and especially in Villa Cissa was a great and a wonderful experience! We enjoyed it a lot!

First of all, we were very impressed by the city of Rovinj, the landscape and the water, because it was our first stay in Istria. I am personally very impressed of this region, I did not know how beautiful it is!

According to Villa Cissa I can only say that we are very impressed, the apartments are absolutely high quality and high standard! In addition, the style of the furniture and the decoration was very impressing, it is lovely!

I studied tourism management for 4 years in Vienna, and from this point of view, I can only say that the whole concept of the Villa Cissa impressed me a lot! Starting with an excellent homepage and finishing with perfect accommodation! From my point of view, all the “small details” have a very high impact on guest satisfaction (all the accessories in the kitchen, the beautiful cutlery, the candles, the matches, the coffee makers, etc…)

I thank you very much and I can only congratulate you to this house!

Anna Pühringer, Vienna, Austria


We really enjoyed our July stay at Villa Cissa. Our group consisted three adults and three small children, and the house fit us perfectly. The Villa is outfitted in luxurious and comfortable style. We especially appreciated the ideal position on quiet street located only steps away from shopping, restaurants and swimming. Villa Cissa is a marvellous base for exploring the Istrian peninsula and enjoying the vibrant and creative spirit of historic Rovinj.

Villa Cissa is the ideal place to stay if you wish to visit Rovinj. Rovinj itself is beautiful and the location of the apartment is extremely convenient, near the marina and the church. The apartment is very pretty and of a higher quality compared to most holiday apartments.

Helena Guerin, Limerick, Ireland


We loved the Villa Cissa for its fantastic location in the old town, its lovely decor and comfort.

We loved our stay in Rovinj … beautiful, charming and full of entertainment, culture and activities. All with the beautiful blues of the Adriatic every day.

We highly recommend Villa Cissa and Rovinj to stay for a vacation in Istria. We will definitely return and will recommend the Villa Cissa to our friends.

Deborah Bell and Lou Piccioni, Toronto, Canada


We had a most wonderful stay in Rovinj, but staying at Villa Cissa made our vacation extra-special. We wished we had booked our stay longer. The hospitality and help of our host was invaluable and only added to our pleasure. Thank you.

Christine & Alan Huber, Boston, Mass. U.S.A.


A most memorable stay at Villa Cissa. Magnificent location, beautifully appointed and very comfortable. Hospitality and helpfulness of our host, faultless!

Visit to Groznjan the highlight of our whole holiday so far – a must see!

Will most certainly come again.

John Clegg and Sally McMichael, Adelaide, South Australia


Šta da kažemo osim da nam je bilo predivno u Rovinju i u Villa Cissa! Ljubaznost, nežnost domaćina pre svega, predivan apartman gde smo se zaista divno osećali i proveli. Puno ukusa u nameštaju apartmana i cele vile, pozicija gde se vila nalazi u Starom gradu … Rovinj je romantičan i vratićemo se uskoro, s radošću!!!

Ana, Giorgio i deca Andrea i Carla, Paris, Francuska

PS. Hvala za ovu nedelju dana! Stvarno se nadamo da ćemo se vratiti sledeće godine.


You were a welcoming host! We enjoyed our time in Rovinj and loved the comfort and charm of the apartment. A real home away from home.

Karen & Americo, New Jersey, United States


Thanks for the nice week in Rovinj, due to our host who gave us nice background information on Rovinj, the inland and countryside. We have never met a host like him, nice, welcoming and always asking if everything is OK.

Hope to see you again, even in spring or fall time!

Patrick Liedel and Katharina Peyerl, Austria


Nous avons passé une très agrèable semaine à Rovinj, en plein coeur de la vieille ville. A proximité de la mer, du port et des cafés. Magrès tout les ecaliers et les goélands le séjour à Villa Cissa étáit fabuleux et à refaire! Merci de l’attention que vous nous avez porté et au plaisir de vous revoir.

Familie Timilić, Sion, Suisse


Thanks to our host and Villa Cissa for a magical experience in Rovinj. What a beautiful city and what a kind and gracious host. We will cherish our memories of Croatia and look forward to returning to Rovinj and Villa Cissa. Hvala!

Victoria and Mike, Seattle, Washington, USA


We very much enjoyed our 7-day stay at the Figarola apartment in Villa Cissa in the last days of August and first days of September, when the weather was still hot and sunny.

The spacious apartment, spanning the last two floors of a fully renovated house, had plenty of light and the decoration included nice nods to the history of art.

Our family of four found sitting on long stools at the marble table next to an actual tree trunk, or watching DVDs on the sofa in the evening, very cozy.

Across the narrow medieval street, the lively conversations of a small bar with a sidewalk terrace, where patrons belonged mainly to the local population, gently accompanied us as a backdrop.

The house’s excellent location in the old town allowed us to reach on foot, within five minutes at most, the nearest (and, to our taste, best) Rovinj beach. A close-by supermarket provided us with all we needed when not opting to eat in one of the many restaurants spread along the waterfront. A 24-hour bakery, also in the vicinity, made last minute purchases possible after the supermarket had closed.

Last, but of course not least, our host was consistently helpful, considerate and, while friendly, full of discretion. We are very thankful to him.
