Casa Sterna is situated in the medieval walled city of Oprtalj, and is surrounded by pristine Mediterranean nature and boasting exceptional Baroque and Renaissance architecture and significant Italian frescos. Walking, biking and hiking activities to nearby villages offering exceptional food and hospitality are recommended, as is the famous healing spa of Istarske Toplice. The nearest beach at Novigrad is 20 min drive. Venice 2h away by car. Nearest airports are Trieste (100km) and Pula (75km) both available through Ryanair and Easyjet. The location is an excellent base-camp for touring the Istrian peninsula where every village offers historic monuments from Roman era, Medieval architecture and painting to charming Venetian and Baroque additions. I am happy to help you make your stay in this part of the world specifically tailored to your needs and interests.

Location description from owner

The Istria region

The hilltop town of Oprtalj is populated by bilingual Croat-Italian speakers situated above the Mirna river valley which is surrounded by a number of Venetian walled cities such as Buzet, Sovinjak, Motovun, Groznjan, and Zavrsje. The valley is famous as the cradle of the indigenous Istrian white truffle and boast many newly restored olive orchids as well as farm-door honey and wine sellers. Healing spa waters of Istarske toplice and many bike and walking tracks make this region ideal for sport and relaxation activities at all levels of hardship. Horseriding and river and sea fishing as well as boating and beaches are all found at the fingertips of the relaxed exploring traveler looking for a perfect marriage between nature and culture.

Oprtalj

The Istrian peninsula is said to be shaped and placed in the heart of Europe. From Casa Sterna a two hour car-ride will bring you to the hills of the Alps, islands of the Mediterranean or downtown Venice. The location cannot be better for exploring one of the historically and culturally most interesting and contentious regions in Europe.
