Holiday rentals and lettings in Istria

Beautiful holiday rentals by the Adriatic

The coastal region of Dalmatia draw many tourists all year round but if you are looking to visit Croatia and get away from the crowds, the northwestern peninsula of Istria is the best option to enjoy the beautiful towns of Rovinj, Porec and Pula.

The Roman ruins are still nearby and the Adriatic waters lapping the shores of its beaches are the ideal activity for a sunny day. Pula is the largest city of the region with a fascinating history. Rovinj, with a pedestrian-only old town and a rocky old town, is one of the most beautiful places to stay.

Holidays in Istria

The area and getting around

Explore the most unknown region of Croatia

Istria is the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea and it is shared by Croatia, Slovenia and Italy. Distances can be covered by public transport but to make the most of the area it is better to drive your own car. Explore Blue Istria along the coast, plenty of quaint fishing villages, rocky beaches and beautiful islands. Green Istria is the central part of the peninsula with picturesque villages, wineries, medieval towns perched on rocky cliffs, olive groves and truffle-filled forests.

Indulge your senses around Istria

Discover the great qualities of Croatia including its gastronomy and beautiful sites. Go explore Hum, Grožnjan and Motovun and have the opportunity of trying some of the best top-notch wines combined with exquisite Mediterranean flavours that are just out of this world. Visit the port city of Rijeka and enjoy a traditional Croatian meal. Try some pršut (ham), a delicious fritaja, some Boškarin and the wonderful vegetable soup called maneštra. Finish your tour with some sweet fritule and try some supa, the traditional warm red wine mulled with olive oil, sugar and black pepper.

Travellers and activities

Istria for nature lovers

Istria is a place of contrasts. The turquoise waters of the Adriatic lapping the coastline along Blue Istria are a wonderful sight but the lush vegetation of inland villages in Green Istria will get your attention too. Visit the historic town of Motovun, perched on a cliff overlooking the vineyards and the olive groves. Not far from here, a little village on the hill is a true hidden gem. Oprtalj has a natural quaint beauty with a small historic centre and breathtaking views from the red-coloured Venetian Loggia. Another beautiful village you must see is Grožnjan, with stunning views, unique shops and lovely houses. Explore its winding alleys and meet Croatian artists who live here or discover unique displays along the streets. Find the most amazing souvenirs including jewellery and any other incomparable knick-knacks you can imagine. Have a tasty bite at Mama Maria Café enjoying a great view.

Istria for wine lovers

Try a wine tasting or a truffle hunting. From May to November harvest festivals, open cellars, wine trails and old-fashioned grape picking happen around wine regions. Croatia produced great wines, still unknown for many, that are an important part of the Istrian gastronomy. The three different types of soil produce unique red grapes and acidic white grapes which will give the wine distinctive notes. Enjoy a one day tour sampling fresh and aged wines paired with olives, cheese and Istrian oil. Some wine tours include a gourmet treat! Indulge yourself with a sumptuous four course meal in a restaurant specialised in truffles as you sip a Roxanich, a Franc Arman, a Pilato or a Dobravac amongst others.

Top 5 travel tips in Istria

1. Get lost in the Old Town of Poreč

You will love the historic centre of the Old Town of Poreč. Get lost in its cobbled allies, stroll along the beautiful squares and admire the Romanesque and Gothic architecture of the palaces and other historical buildings.
