Luxury Villa Istria

Spending your holiday in one of our luxury villas in Istria you will experience a fantastic coast line, stretching from Umag in the North to Rovinj in the South, offers a rich history. You can stroll along the narrow streets, marvel at the remains of the Venetian past and enjoy Mediterranean food in the small taverns.

 

Umag is well known amongst athletes. Besides many water sport possibilities you will also find sightseeing flights, horse riding and last but not least excellent tennis courts, where the “ATP Croatian Open” is held every year.

 

Novigrad is famous for its countless shingle and rocky beaches and Porec offers with its Eufrasius basilica, dating back to the 6th century, and its Mediterranean atmosphere more than one highlight. Rovinj is a romantic picturesque town and always worth a visit.

 

 

 

 

 

The south coast

Istria’s south coast offers countless hidden bays with sandy, shingle and rocky beaches. Taking a walk trough the 3,000 year old city of Pula, you can follow its rough history with every step. Several small and charming villages surround Pula.

 

Embedded between the bays of Solin and Slatana, you will find the romantic village of Banjole with its magnificent pine covered coast.

 

Premantura is all the way south, close to the nature reserve Cap Kamenjak. The city is very popular amongst wind and kite surfers. The most famous tourist centre along the south coast, however, is Medulin, the antique Mutila, that offers you numerous sport and leisure possibilities.

The east coast

The rocky east coast with its dense pine forests, hidden bays and undiscovered beaches is still an unspoiled and mysterious region. The area’s largest tourist town is Rabac. Several peaceful small villages dot the coast line.

 

The local restaurants offer traditional food, like seafood and Pršut. Try and taste the Mediterranian cuisine that is not only healthy but also delicious.  Enjoy your meal!

Inland

Croatia’s romantic inlands have become an insider tip amongst people who seek privacy. Villages surrounded by walls, gentle hills, fertile vineyards, magnificent cypresses and traditional stone houses attract every year many nature lovers and hikers. Starting in Ro, the Glagolitian avenue runs all the way to Hum, its neighbouring town. The avenue is a memorial of Glagoliza, the oldest Slavic script. The city of Motovun, home to the “Motovun film festival” offers a fantastic view of the Mirna Valley.
