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.

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.

                                                              On quiet location situated villa. By car all the interesting places of istria are within 1h drive. The house is newly build in 2015 and is in excellent condition. The owners are really helpfull and have helped us with the day tours and with info on the region. For our kids it was also a great place as it had plenty of grass to play and had fireplaces for roosting marshmallow. Also the forest next to the house was exciting to explore: wild asparagus! Overall a wonderfull holiday in a great house.

                                                              Stunning luxury villa in Istria

                                                              5 of 5
                                                              Everything was done to a very high standard. Personal service from the owner who met us at the local petrol station and then led us to the villa at the start of our stay. Complimentary local cheese, oil and bread left as a welcome. Good wifi. Great sound system with outside speakers which we could enjoy to the full as the villa is quite isolated.Great place to spend time relaxing.
