The Istria region
Istria the region
A large, triangular peninsular in northwest Croatia, Istria has an identity all of its own. Historically it has close ties with Italy and still today, many towns, especially on the western side, are bilingual. It’s notably ahead of the rest of the country regarding current trends: restaurants serve beautifully presented creative cuisine, farmhouses dish up local specialities and the tourist office has set up a series of cycle routes and wine roads.
Lying on the tip of the peninsular is Pula, with a first-century Roman forum as the main square and an ancient amphitheatre dominating the skyline. Close by are the islands of Brijuni National Park, which once served as the summer residence of the late President Tito.
Croatia’s most popular seaside resorts lie on the Istrian west coast: Porec, home to a splendid sixth-century basilica decorated with stunning golden Byzantine mosaics, and neighbouring Rovinj, made up of ochre-and russet-coloured houses clustered around a pretty fishing harbour, crowned by a hilltop church.
Moving inland to the Scre Istre (Heart of Istria), narrow country roads meander through a gently rolling landscape of woodland and vineyards.
Istria’s rugged pine covered forests, deserted beaches, undiscovered coves and breathtaking fjords offer fabulous aerial vistas for hang-gliding and para-gliding, while Istria’s sailing and water sports, like much of Croatia are a world class opportunity.

Situated in a remote but active little hamlet, this beautiful barn conversion provides everything you need for a relaxing and comfortable holiday.
The property is spacious and well equipped with a good size pool and patios, providing a range of outdoor living areas. Great proximity to both the coast and delightful hilltop villages/local towns. All up ... the perfect base for a restful or active holiday in a stunning part of Croatia.

We had a really great time. Loved the area and the Villa and the Hill Top towns. Only down side was it is about 30 minutes away from the Coast. Having your own pool and space made up for it. Looks like only just refurbed and having AirCon was essential in June. Would would certainly go back. Also food in the area is great and good value. The restaurant nearby is really quirky but if you go for Pasta with Truffles it's quite pricey.
Incidenatlly we flew in and out of Venice (About 2.00 hrs away) and killed two birds with one stone.
