Great accommodation for a relaxed vacation! We were warmy received welcome by our hosts who were both tolerant and freehanded. The flat, which had everything you need short of the gear necessary to cater to a dinner party of twenty guests or so, was spotlessly clean, had AC on request which was not necessary the week we stayed there.
Next to the appartment was a generous parking lot, a thing not common to steep hills of Kvarner bay and Ucka mountain range. Referring to the once agriculturally used terraces the estate ground around the house itself was divided into 4 floors which were usable in part as playing fields for basketball and soccer for the kids. Not to forget the swimming pool.
Best things overall were the balcony resembling an amphitheatre for the whole Kvarner bay. Marvellous especially in the early mornings when the haze layer hadn't built on the water yet or at night. What a vista!
Even as good was the position as basis for hiking into Ucka mountain; something I strongly recommend.
Overall Croatia/Istria has decent food and people are friendly and open. Water is fine for swimming but don't expect sandy beaches. Best beach nearer than an 30-minutes drive is Mosenicka Draga to the west of Lovran.
Don't miss hikes into Ucka mountains or along the Mosenicka Draga to mount Perun or to eagle-crested Kastav.
There is a new Supermarket in Lovran: Plodine, which supplements the venerable Konzum in town.
The ONLY thing to mention negatively were the access roads since the flat was situated 250 meters above sea level and there is just one road leading to the villages above Lovran. And bends, curves, serpentines, swerves...all these words seems to be originating in Croatia. Expect plenty of them and be prepared for a steep-angled 'last-mile' to the house. Appr. 200 meters of ski-run downhill. More than 30% of slope gradient. Have good brakes at hand and always engage a car's first gear to leave the premise.
Last not least: Be tolerant when making beach holiday in Croatia: time and again you will spot concrete (In double-sense) left-overs of former Yugoslavia even at quaint places.
