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.

Thing to do on holiday in Istria, 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.

Umag is a hugely popular destination to take a holiday villa in Istria, boasting 20km of Riviera.

This is the location of the Croatian Tennis Open, so sporting facilities are top class. The coastline is dotted with small secluded cove beaches with Istria accommodation on the shores.

Porec is the most popular resort in Istria, regularly voted Croatia’s best resort. The old town is over 2,000 years old, and despite the popularity of the region, it never seems to get crowded or uncomfortable. There are numerous historical sites of huge importance to Istria, and tours of the Euphrasian Basilica with the beautiful golden mosaics are a great way to spend an afternoon from an Istria holiday apartment. The main tourist areas however are outside of the town. The bays of Zelena, Laguna and Plava are like villages, with luxury villas, shopping facilities and sports centers.

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.
