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

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.

Over the new year, Pula was a little quieter than it normally would be, (which was exactly what we wanted). Pula is absolutely beautiful. The property boasts loads of space, with bedrooms aplenty, newly done bathrooms, a swimming pool, a balcony, the works. It can EASILY house 10 people, with enough couch space to seat up to 16, and a mezzanine level for socialising. It is perfect located near a lake/beach/marina and a huge camping park where, during the summer, I imagine must be the most incredible summer spot, with wakeboarding cables in the water, boating, kayaking, paddleboarding, etc all accessible. This location is ideal for kids and adults alike, with copious amounts of restaurants, catering to all types within the local area. The property was very well maintained, and impeccably cleaned. It felt brand new! The gentleman who met us to let us in was extremely polite, punctual and very helpful showing us all the inner workings (hot water, heating, towels, etc), and then left us to it, just as we hoped. The house is at the end of a road which ensures peace and quiet, which is also great. The neighbours even came out to say hi, which speaks to the owner's personality. Speaking of the owner, he sent us several emails with incredible detail of things to do in the area, all which were so helpful and spot on! I would HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone looking for a "home away from home" for a few days.

Vodnjan is full of undiscovered historical treasures. The locals are very friendly and the pace of life is relaxed. Yet within 20 minutes you can be where all the action is in Rovinj or Pula. And the beach is 5 minutes by car if you want to have a dip in the clear waters of the Adriatic.
