B. Describing your house/flat/room

APPARTMENT "L", Rovinj - 2021 Reviews, Pictures & Deals


Hi Mila, 

Luke and I have just moved into our dream home. It’s a big old four-storey house. It’s got a spacious living room which has a wonderful view of the park, and a cosy study where we can both work. And there are some lovely light, airy bedrooms which overlook the garden.

There is a separate basement flat, which we might turn into a granny flat for my mother. And if we want to add an extension there’s room for that too. It needs to be completely refurbished, but Luke and I have always wanted to do up an old house

Come and visit. 

Love, Julia


Hi Julia, 

You’re so lucky! I’d love to move out of my awful one-room flat. It’s in such a dilapidated building. You go into a draughty hall, down a chilly corridor and into this really cramped room. I want to buy a place of my own but there’s a shortage of affordable housing here and I don’t want to take out a big mortgage. I’d love to see your house. I hope you’ll invite me to your house-warming party

Big hug,
