Make a holiday apartment in Novigrad City your home away from home

This locale in the Istria region of Croatia lies on a small peninsula on Croatia’s west coast. It is a popular place for holiday accommodation for tourists looking to explore the touristic riches of Istria. Among the enticing offerings this destination offers holidaymakers are a variety of water sports and many historical sites as well as museums where more historical artefacts can be found. Compared to other popular Istrian cities such as Rovinj and Porec, Novigrad is more laid back and less crowded, ensuring holidaymakers a relaxed experience as they enjoy their holiday homes. HomeAway promises visitors lavish holiday apartments in Novigrad City, most of which are not far from the sea. Some are even situated right on the waterfront.

Things to do

-Museums: The K.u.K Marine Museum is found in Novigrad City and holidaymakers staying here should take time to visit this fascinating museum, which is actually ancient warehouse in the city’s old town. Here they will find artefacts that depict the city’s long history as a fishing and seafaring town. Items such as old nautical instruments and charts are displayed there.

-Old Town: There is a peculiar feel of travelling back in time as one walks along the medieval walls that line the narrow streets of Novigrad’s old town. The many houses there built in Venetian Gothic style and the town loggia add to this medieval air.

-Food and drink: Visitors can feast on great sea food and fish in eateries such as the Marina Restaurant. Not only do they offer smashing fish-based delicacies, their dessert options are tantalising. There are also a good number of ‘konobas’ or taverns not far from the holiday apartments in Novigrad City where visitors can savour Istrian cuisine helped down with excellent wine.

-Water sports: Those looking for a bit of adventure during their holiday can take a canoe safari in the waters of the Adriatic Sea. But those who would rather just relax can watch local fisherman go about their business at the harbour and the seagulls that are plenteous there. There are many beaches where visitors and their kids can swim safely.

-Cultural events: Towards the end of April and at the beginning of June locals and visitors are treated to an open air gourmet festival called the Gnam Gnam Festival. It is held at the Novigrad harbour and visitors who go there can look forward to feasting on delicacies prepared by local restaurants. Local wine and olive oil producers also bring their wares for sale there.

The apartment was clean, kitchen well equipped ( should someone wanted to cook :), close to the town centre, beaches and other places of interest. Owners are helpful and supportive throughout the booking process making the rental smooth and trouble free. We have enjoyed staying in the apartment.

The house is ultra modern, lovely restaurants close by, fishmonger down the road. It lends itself to outdoor living, spotlessly clean, can't recommend it enough, best house I have stayed in for years. This is our 5 trip to Croatia; various places and it will not be our last!
