Holiday rentals and lettings in Istria

Dream holiday rentals in Istria

The Istrian peninsula stands on its cliffs in the heart of the Adriatic Sea. While it partly belongs to Italy and Slovenia, the Croatian coast of Istria offers superb holiday rentals, luxurious and modern, which allow you to enjoy the beauty of the coastal cities of Pula, Rovinj and Porec. A delight for the eyes in the heart of historic and charming cities.

Holiday rentals in the Istrian countryside

Istria is famous for its medieval cities, but its countryside is no less exceptional. In Basel, on the road between Rovinj and Pula, holiday rentals with swimming pool allow you to enjoy the Istrian way of life. In the north of the peninsula, comfortable accommodation in the villages of Groznjan, Zavrsje or Motovun offers tired travellers a setting of unspoilt nature that is particularly suitable for rest and relaxation. A framework that we can't get enough of.

Holidays in Istria

Location and orientation

Istria, an exceptional coastline

Walking along the Adriatic coast on the Istrian coast is an absolute delight for the eyes. Arrival in the peninsula is in Pula, famous for its majestic Roman amphitheatre. This port city is located in the south of the peninsula, but it is by going up the west coast that Istria really reveals itself. Rovinj, certainly one of the most beautiful cities in the country, welcomes visitors with its colourful Venetian-inspired facades, which are reflected in the waves of the Adriatic at sunset. Then it is Poreč that awaits travellers heading north. The city is best known for its intense nightlife, with the false air of Ibiza. After enjoying the beaches of the region, it is on the east coast of the peninsula that you should go to admire Opatija, the most beautiful seaside resort in Istria. This enchanting journey has only just begun.

Istria, a preserved nature

Beyond its splendid towns and villages, Istria is also dotted with natural parks and breathtaking wilderness scenery. The west coast seems the best place to spend long days on the beach, in the middle of rocky cliffs and turquoise waters. Kamenjak Park, south of Pula, is a first natural setting that also offers aquatic pleasures: its rugged relief has given rise to sumptuous coves that are popular with holidaymakers. A little further north, the Limski Kanal offers a breathtaking view: you would think you were in Norway, as this fjord looks so much like the relief of the Far North. To finish a stay in Istrian lands, you have to move away to the east: there, the region of the Plivtice lakes will complete the delight of lovers of lake pleasures.

Travellers and activities

Istria for heritage lovers

Under Greek, Roman, Byzantine, Germanic and then Italian domination, Istria was the prey of all the great civilizations of the Old Continent. This is evidenced by its many ancient remains, such as the amphitheatre of Pula. The largest city in Istria also has another marvel: a very well preserved temple of Augustus. The villages in northern Istria also bear witness to the region's glorious past. Motovun, perched on a 270-metre hill, overlooks the Istrian countryside with its fortifications and Romanesque buildings. The city of Poreč, still on the west coast, is not to be outdone. Its Euphrasian basilica is full of golden mosaics that will charm art history lovers. A real dive into time.

Istria in love

With its superb beaches, mild climate and picturesque villages, Istria is the ideal place for a romantic weekend. A stopover in Hum, a postcard village located near the western side of the peninsula, will allow you to enjoy the Croatian way of life and an exceptional romantic setting. Then a stroll in the Prirode Ucka park, to the east of the village, will preserve the magic of the moments spent in Hum. The ideal precondition for a boat trip to discover the Brijuni Islands, in the south of the peninsula, the epicentre of a national park with an outdated charm. To finish this stay on one of the beaches bordering the superb Rovinj will allow you to have no regrets about this trip for two to Istria.

The soil of Istria is particularly rich in truffles. The world's largest black truffle was discovered there in 1999, near Buje. On the scale, 1,310 kg of pure pleasure.

Top 5 things to do in Istria

1. Attend the Dimensions Festival of Pula

This electronic music festival is particularly noteworthy for its setting: Fort Punta Christo. Spectators gather in the fort's grounds to share a wild evening with the best artists from the underground scene. Not to be missed.

2. Discover the Plitvice Lakes region

Although not directly on the peninsula, this national park is worth a visit and will help you escape the crowded atmosphere that sometimes prevails in Istria. Splendid waterfalls, green nature and transparent waters will be the reward for the reckless travellers who will go there.

3. Taste the local cuisine

Istria is a land of character with many specialities to share. If its wines are among the greatest Croatian wines, it is above all the truffle, black and white, that captivates the most discerning palates. Istria is full of them and it would be a question of not sulking your pleasure.

4. Enjoy Istria during the Indian summer

The climate is very mild in Istria all year round. Another reason not to go there during the very high season, when the region's towns and villages are overwhelmed by tourists. The months of September and October offer mild weather and illuminate the superb Istrian lands with the shimmering sun of the Indian summer.

5. Participate in the Truffle Days

Wise travellers who travel to Istria between September and November will be able to enjoy an exceptional event: the Truffle Days. In the Motovun region, a splendid village, dozens of exhibitions, fairs and tastings await truffle lovers. A must-see festival.
