The Croatian coastal city of Rovinj is situated on the western coast of the popular Istrian Peninsula, on the north Adriatic Sea. There is an excellent range of self catering holiday rentals in the Rovinj Area to choose from. The area makes a great holiday destination for families, friends, and couples who want to enjoy the coast, but have a good range of activities and sightseeing nearby too.
The Rovinj Area is truly beautiful and there is always plenty to do here, from enjoying the popular streets of the city, spending time on the beaches, or strolling through pine forests – all of this is within minutes of your Rovinj Area self catering accommodation.
Take time experiencing the Old Town of Rovinj with its old stone buildings and traditional red tiled roofs. In the evenings the city is lively but not overly so, perfect for families to enjoy as there are many restaurants, plus bars, some clubs and entertainment. On days when you prefer to cook your own meals, your self catering accommodation in Rovinj is never far from supermarkets and fresh produce. Many holidaymakers come here to enjoy the beaches, or cycle or walk in the area surrounding the city, as this is very beautiful.
In the city itself there are several attractions to see including the hilltop Baroque church, Saint Euphemia’s Basilica. This is situated in the heart of the Old Town and the bell tower was modeled on the famous St Mark’s in Venice. Speaking of Venice, there is now a high speed direct ferry link between the two cities, so perhaps a day trip to this wonderful Italian city could be in order! Back in Rovinj, the Rovinj Heritage Museum is worth visiting too.
When self catering in the Rovinj Area you can also take advantage of the great natural attractions all around you – the beautiful forests and coastal areas are great for exploring, as are the Rovinj Islands which are situated within an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Rovinj Area self catering accommodation benefits from a lovely Mediterranean climate, with hot and sunny days throughout the summer. The sun is said to shine for 10 hours a day from the middle of May to the middle of September, and the rest of the year the temperatures are mild, so perfect for sightseeing.
Getting to your self catering accommodation in the Rovinj Area has never been easier with several airports within reach and cheap flights to choose from! Within Croatia, Pula is the closest airport and this is covered by Ryanair, and seasonally by Thomson Airways. Only a little further away, though within Italy, is Trieste Airport. Again Ryanair flies here. Another option is to fly to Venice and catch the high speed ferry, though this would be a seasonal option too.
