The Daily Telegraph (Jane Foster):
Tiny Novigrad centres on a busy fishing harbour and is a noted gourmet destination, with several outstanding restaurants serving local seafood and truffle specialities – try the long-running Damir i Ornella and the more rustic Gatto Nero. Villa Lorena stands on the seafront, with a section of the 13th-century town walls incorporated into the building. Full-length glazing fills the slick, contemporary interiors with natural light and fantastic Adriatic views, and with spacious terraces on each floor, you don’t need to leave the building to enjoy the sea and sunshine. The vast open-plan living-and-cooking space is ideal for group entertaining, while the four double bedrooms, each en-suite, offer total privacy. There’s also an indoor pool and sauna. On request, the owners can arrange a top local chef to prepare gourmet dinners.
