Make a holiday home, farmhouse, villa or cottage in Central Istria, Croatia your home away from home

The Central Istrian region of Croatia is almost more Italian than it is Croatian, owing to its history, but whether you hear Italian or Croat being spoken won’t make any difference to the beautiful scenery, attractive medieval towns, and great selection of holiday accommodation available here. Situated on the Istrian peninsula in the far west of Croatia, Central Istria is the area around the city of Pazin. Although inland, the waters of the Adriatic Sea are never far away if you fancy the beach for a change from your villa’s pool!

The pool area is the star attraction and the kids spent many days enjoying themselves for hours on end. The views from the villa are stunning. The local restaurant Konoba Santa Terra is a delight and the owners helped to make our holiday extra special, even letting the kids make the hand made pasta for the next days meals! The views from the restaurant terrace as the sun went down were magical. The villa is so close to many of Istria's food and cultural attractions and we would recommend getting olive oil from Ipsa and trying the Frank Arman wine tasting before purchasing some bottles! We will definitely be returning because the villa was wonderful and had everything we wanted. The area is beautiful and so much nicer than the coastal areas. For us it made for a dream holiday.
