The village of Medulin, which lies in the metropolitan area of Pula 10km away from the historic city center, overlooks the deep blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. Once a small fishing village, and now a bustling tourist resort, Medulin has beautiful sandy beaches and peaceful campsites that are ideal for Mediterranean family holidays.

It is close to the center so we easily went to the old city of Pula, you must see it, there are also a lot of places to eat and drink great wines, but Jakov (the owner) will tell you everything so you really can't get lost and you will be very satisfied. Of course, the coastline is amazing, Jakov took us on a boat ride, the sea was so clear and absolutely perfect, you won't regret if you come

                                                                                                      Good location, bit far out of town, but attic is a lot nicer than pictures give it credit for!

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Apartment was bigger than expected, the rooms were really cute, modern and spacious bathrooms and living room. Was a great place for some much needed rest and recuperation and loved the fact that there was a smart TV there with netflix, youtube etc (we didn't leave the apartment on the first day and managed to get through a whole series!) Only downside would be that floors are thin and we made a lot of noise just by walking around the apartment which unfortunately upset the neighbours. But its very close to a supermarket (1 min walk) only 5 min walk from the beach, town is a bit further away - we didn't go in the end because we thought it was too far and we had already visited Pula before. But great price compared to others and equally as good!
