Villa Description
Swimming pool, BBQ area and outside space

The lawn is the perfect place for children to play or enjoy a picnic, or for sun worshippers to relax with a book and a cool drink before a much needed dip in the pool! There is also a brick BBQ and shaded alfresco dining area to enjoy an evening meal.

Villa Location
The quaint countryside hamlet of Heraki is around 20 minutes drive from Porec, with a choice of facilities also in Sveti Lovrec, only a few minutes away by car. Sveti Lorvec - St. Laurence - has a number of small shops, cafes and restaurants to choose from but a much greater choice can be found in Porec, as well as a large paved sunbathing terrace and beach.

Location features

Shops and restaurants

Villa Amaranthus enjoys a great position in the hamlet of Heraki, close to Sveti Lovrec town as well as the more established coastal resorts of Porec and further South, Rovinj. Sveti Lovrec has a small choice of shops and places to eat, but either Porec or Rovinj are definitely worth a visit with a much larger selection of facilities, beaches and attractions.

1 ½ miles South of Heraki is the town of Sveti Lovrec - Saint Lawrence - which has a small number of shops and eateries to enjoy. But for a much greater choice enjoy the 20 minute drive to the much larger area of Porec on the Western coast which has a wealth of shops, cafes and restaurants, some on the waterfront overlooking the sea.


The nearest beaches are in Porec, about 20 minutes drive West of Heraki. The Porec coastline is dotted with paved bathing areas and pebbly bays, where you can also find watersports facilities and fantastic scenery as you sunbathe. For serious beach goers, take a boat from Porec across to the island of St. Nicholas which is rumoured to have the best beach in the area! Or try Pical or Brulo Plava Laguna beaches a little closer to home.

Places of interest

For a great family orientated day out, visit Porec Aquarium, the popular Traktor Museum, submarine safari or hop on the tourist train. A trip to the Basilica of St. Euphrasius is also not to be missed!
The alternative nearby resorts of Rovinj and Pula are also easily accessible by car and make for a great day trip, whether you're looking for a change of scenery, something to do with the kids, or something more cultural - Pula Amphitheatre is a particularly popular attraction!


Every villa comes with its own manual, complete with details of the best restaurants, taxis, local amenities and activities. And of course, our reps are on hand to make sure you love your holiday more. If you need any advice or tips on the local area, they will be more than happy to help.

Activities and things to do
Baredine Jama-Grotta Caves
The Baredine Caves in Porec are well worth a visit if you're looking for something a bit different to do during your stay. The caves are an underground maze of stalagmites and stalactites, forming structures such as the 10 metre long curtains, a statue of the Virgin Mary, the shepherdess Milka's body, the Leaning Tower of Pisa and the snowman torchbearer! A guide will take you on a 40 minute tour of the caves, past the 66 metre deep hatch descending to the underground lakes. Certain varieties of insects and crayfish can also be found and there is a museum to explore as well. The Traktor Museum and climbing centre are next door.

Euphrasius Basilica, Porec
The Basilica of St. Euphrasius in Porec is definitely worth a visit for anyone wanting to enjoy an authentic taste of Croatia and learn about its rich history. The Basilica has a collection of Byzantine art and architecture dating from the 6th century, included in the UNESCO List of World Cultural Heritage. The building is also easy to identify from the exterior, dominating the skyline of Porec, and is one of the most photographed sites in the area.

Diving, Porec
In Porec there are 3 diving centres.

Zeus Faber diving centre provides diving and snorkelling facilities for all ages and abilities. For more experienced divers, the centre also arranges excursions to reefs, caves and even wrecks!

Diving Centre Porec specialises in exploring the underwater caves of Banjol Island. The caves are anything from 5 &ndash, 20m below sea level and are home to a range of fish.

Diving Centre Blue Lagoon is very close to the centre of Porec. A boat will take you to deep waters where you can explore the underwater caves of Banjol Island and wreck of the HMS Coriolanus.

Windsurfing, Porec
ProSurf in Porec offers beginners courses and windsurf hire. There are different courses on offer which last anything from 2 hours to 12 hours split into a week.

Adriatic Golf Club
North of Umag, around 45 minutes drive from Porec, is the Adriatic Golf Club located in an area called Crveni Vrh. Opened in 2009, this course has 18 holes over 6360m, 80 acres, although there is a shorter course at 4690m, and was designed by the famous Austrian architects Diethard Fahrenleitner and Barbara Eisserer. Only 300m from the sea, the course has fabulous views over the water as well as the nearby vineyards, olive groves and rich green countryside.
