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

Croatia’s unspoiled nature and mild climate has made it one of the most desirable tourist destinations in Europe and it is easy to understand why when you visit Pula. 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

Tastefully furnished, and well equipped, the washing machine was a real luxury (I'm getting old) as I didn't have to take home mountains of washing! The property was very clean. The pool is great, lovely to relax there in the sun - it got full sun from late morning until about 5.30 in the evening in September. Was a little chilly when you first get in! Garden is large, and private, especially the secluded BBQ area. A car is essential, although nearby to Pula, the property is situated in the middle of nowhere. There was one restaurant we found within walking distance, the highly recommended Pizzeria Samantha. Pula itself is wonderful, especially for history buffs - do not miss the arena and do spend some time people watching on the forum - drink rather than eat there, the restaurants are overpriced tourist traps. The only minor downside of this property is if you're not keen on insects! It is close by the forest, and we had a bit of a fright on the first night with spiders, giant grasshoppers and scorpions. After that experience we kept the windows closed and bought insect spray and plug in repellents and we had barely any problems afterwards! Thank you very much to Radivoj and Morena for letting us stay in their beautful property, and for being so helpful. We had a great time in amazing Istria :)

A Marina nearby provides rental of boats (large and small) for sailing, motoring, windsurfing, etc. There is convenient access to Pula and other parts of Istria. A nice fish restaurant is within walking distance and a couple of small cafes near the marina provide simple fare and drinks. A very small market, also within walking distance, is available for essentials. The agents responsible for the house are friendly and helpful. The owner, Richard, was always available (through e-mail) to answer questions and provide information. We would recommend the house without hesitation.
