Make a holiday rental villa or apartment in Istria, Croatia your home away from home

Istria is the peninsula of Croatia which boarders Slovenia and shares a maritime boarder with Italy. Self catering apartments in Istria are always in great demand as this is the most popular tourist destination in Croatia.

A holiday rental in Istria places you squarely in the gastronomic heartland of Croatia, where indulging in the fresh seafood, white truffles and local white wines will certainly become a main feature of your stay in an Istria apartment or villa.

Istria is made of lush rolling hills adorned with productive vineyards and scattered with charming, ancient medieval villages, which makes touring the countryside by car, foot or bicycle a real pleasure from a holiday villa in Istria. There are a number of UNESCO World Heritage sites to be discovered, like the Roman amphitheatre, preserved mummies and traditional fishing ports.

Although the interior has a huge amount to offer, it is the beaches around the 430km coastline which draw most people to Istria villas. The coast provides endless entertainment through swimming, sailing and a variety of water sports.

A beautiful hidden gem that we can't wait to come

5 of 5
We spent a week here in June and had one of our best holidays. We had the most friendly welcome when we arrived at the villa. The owner took his time to show us around and explain everything there was to know. The house is fully equipped with everything you need and more… If you are seeking a peaceful and private location for some time in the sun then we couldn't recommend this beautiful place highly enough!
