The apartments are approximately 300 - 500 meters away from the 3 main resort hotels. These hotels have great facilities including pools, tennis courts, bars, restaurants, etc . Horse riding, bike hire, scuba diving, truffle hunts, etc are available in the main season (June to August).
A second identical adjacent apartment may be available if this one shows as booked, or if a larger party needs to be catered for.
The second bedroom is on a mezzanie level with lower than average ceiling heights, and steep stairs, making it unsuitable for the very tall, very young, or those with restricted agility. For this reason it has been priced as a one bedroom apartment. Thus the good news is that two people go free!
The Istria region
The Istria peninsular has often been called the "Tuscany" of Croatia. The area is steeped in history, with Pula having a large Roman Amphitheatre, Forum, and cobbled pedestrian shopping alleys and market. All over the area are ancient picuresque hill-top villages. Vineyards abound, and the local wine is very drinkable, and complements the excellent local food (Naturally fish tends to be a speciality, but the steaks are just as good!) The bulk of holiday makers tend to be Italians and Germans, although English is widely understood in the main centres; so if you want to get away from the crush of English tourists, this is the place!
Medulin itself, some 10k from Pula, is an old village on a small hill, dropping down to the modern harbour and resort area, with great restaurants, bars and clubs. The sea here is clear and blue but the beaches tend to be rocky. Small ferries run to the islands dotted offshore which have good quality beaches, and some of them have restaurants too.
