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

Kvarner Bay is the large bay in the northern Adriatic on the Croatian coast, flanked by the Istrian Peninsula. The bay is fantastically deep and dotted with islands, giving visitors a huge selection of places from which to base their exploration of the beaches, towns, forests and islets in Kvarner Bay. There is a staggering variety of landscapes, cultures and activities available from Kvarner Bay accommodation, allowing visitors to enjoy lazy days on beautiful beaches, long hikes in the mountain air and unrivalled sailing during the same holiday, and during the winter months, you can even ski.

Things to do in Kvarner Bay, Croatia

Kvarner Bay is a hugely popular destination for both cycling holidays and sailing holidays. The fantastic panoramic views from almost every corner along the Kvarner Mainland make the region a perfect place to discover slowly, taking in the sights, tastes and sounds of the region at your own pace. There are many fantastic walks around Kvarner Bay to be enjoyed too. Many of the beaches in the area are backed by long promenades, and the mountains are a maze of excellent walking routes to tackle. One of the best places in which to explore the Kvarner countryside is from the magnificent landscapes of the Paklenica National Park, which lies in the southern end of the Velebit Mountains.

The beach life is wonderful from a holiday rental in Kvarner Bay. There are almost endless beaches to choose from, and due to the long tourist heritage in the area, all your needs are well catered for, especially for those wishing to sail or fish from their Kvarner Bay accommodation.

There are a great range of events to enjoy from a self catering Kvarner Bay property too. Good living and wellness is a recurring theme in the area, with fine foods being celebrated through the Marunada Chestnut Festival and Olive Days in Punta during the autumn leading to a huge range of Christmas celebrations and concerts throughout December. The Rijeka Festival in February and Rab’s Chivalric Games are not to be missed if you are staying in Kvarner Bay at the time.

Places to visit on holiday to Kvarner Bay, Croatia

The Kvarner Mainland is often referred to as the Croatian Riviera, due to the phenomenal standards of its beach resorts, which have been bringing visitors to the region for well over 160 years. The Gorski Kotar Highlands are a walker’s dream, with dramatic scenery providing panoramic views of the highest quality at almost every step. The quality of services, wonderful beaches and crisp mountain air have made villas in Kvarner Bay some of the most sought after in Croatia, especially with sailors due to the eight excellent marinas that adorn the coastline.

The Kvarner Islands are a perfect place to get away. The beaches are less well known than those of the Kvarner Mainland, and with so many secluded bays and inlets, there is always plenty of room in which to moor a boat, go fishing or relax on the beach. There are a great range to choose from, the vast majority of which are blessed with wonderfully historic little towns and large swathes of unspoilt countryside, ideal for walking and cycling.

Weather in Kvarner Bay, Croatia

Kvarner Bay is blessed with a surprisingly mild climate year round. During the summer months, temperatures average over 20°C for the period between May and September, with daily peaks in the mid 30’s expected throughout July and August. Even during winter, you would expect temperatures to push the 10°C mark on most days.

Travel to Kvarner Bay, Croatia

Although there are a range of small airports in the area, the nearest international airport to a holiday rental in Kvarner is Pula, (PUY). Pula, despite being a tiny airport, is well connected to the UK by Ryanair, ThomsonFly and XL Airways, which all provide services from London, as well as Birmingham (BHX), Manchester (MAN) and Bristol (BRS) respectively.

Wundervolles Haus in guter Lage mit traumhaftem Ausblick

5 of 5
Wir verbrachten eine Woche im Juli mit 7 Personen in Villa Amelie in Veprinac. Schon der erste Eindruck war hervorragend. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt, liebevoll eingerichtet und dekoriert. Alle Zimmer bieten ausreichend Platz. Von der schönen Terasse, dem Balkon und den meisten Zimmern hat man einen traumhaften Ausblick auf das Meer, Ičići und auch (seitlich) die Berge. Das Haus liegt absolut ruhig. Zu den Stränden und Städten sind es aber nur wenige Kilometer, ca. 10 bis 15 Minuten zu fahren. Wir bevorzugten eine kleine Bucht bei Medveja, da die Strände in Ičići und Opatija zu dieser Zeit sehr voll waren. Die Verkehrsanbindung ist auch günstig für Ausflüge. Wir waren zum Beispiel in Grožnjan, dem Wasserpark Istralandia, mit der Fähre auf Cres und im nahen Učka-Gebirge. Die Abende genossen wir auf der Terasse. Auch den Kindern (5,11 und 13) gefiel der Aufenthalt sehr. Der Kontakt zu den Vermietern Al und Iva war sehr nett und lies keine Fragen offen. Ein Hinweis zum Abschluss: bei der Anreise ist es ratsam sich vom Vermieter noch eine detailierte Beschreibung geben zu lassen, da das Haus etwas versteckt, aber eben wunderschön, liegt. Die letzten Meter dürften für tiefergelegte Autos schwierig werden, für normale Wagen ist der Abschnitt aber kein Problem. Zusammengefasst kann man sagen: Wir kommen gern wieder!

Superb! Comfortable, well positioned and private

5 of 5
I can't rate this villa highly enough. As others have said, 'what you see is what you get' - no tricks of photography. The villa has been furnished to a very high quality and, most importantly, the beds are comfortable. The surroundings are quiet (you will even see Mink nearby!) and private. The owners are delightfully helpful (giving you complete privacy or helping you to plan your trip, as you prefer). You will need a car. One note of caution (nothing to do with the villa) is that if you eat out, it is better to eat at established, non-seasonal restaurants otherwise you could be waiting in excess of 1.5h for service at coastal seasonal restaurants - that's if you don't give up beforehand!! If you like the equivalent of 'Brighton of the UK' experience, head for Opatija or, if you like medieval villages with cobble streets, there is no shortage with Rovinj, Buzet, Motovun, Labin etc etc. especially nice. I have no hesitation in recommending this villa to other guests - oh, and by the way, do take time to go up to the highest point behind the villa (Vela Ucka) for the fabulous views of the region and islands.
