Villas in Pula
Pula is a small coastal town and is well connected, so the area to rent your villa is not as important as the fact that you are comfortable. It all depends on whether you want to enjoy the beach, make cultural visits or get some rest. Those who have little time and want to see as many monuments as possible, the best option is to rent a villa in the centre of Pula, especially the streets surrounding the Istra Archaeological Museum. If you prefer the beach, the southern part of the city is a good option.
