Make A Holiday Rental Apartment in Vodnjan, Croatia, Your Home Away From Home

Vodnjan is a small Croatian town, located within the Istria region, to the far north-west of the country. As the town is much less developed for the tourist market than some of the better known resorts in the region, there is a select choice of self catering rental apartments and houses available for rental here. For a greater choice of rental accommodation, the popular tourist destination of Pula is just a short drive away.

Each time we have stayed in Tessa’s apartments in the town square – twice in Castello and twice in Benussi. Both apartments are very clean, stylish and well appointed. The beds are very comfortable and both bath and beach towels provided. Both apartments share access to a roof terrace with fantastic views – perfect for enjoying a G&T before going out. Vodnjan is an excellent base from which to explore the whole of Istria by car. We have holidayed in Croatia many times over the last 10 years but this is our favourite part of the country. We love watching the world go by in Vodnjan and the slower pace of life there. It is a beautiful old town, with a very relaxed atmosphere and few tourists – perfect for a peaceful, romantic getaway! Benussi is the more spacious apartment with the best views over the town square. However, both apartments make for a comfortable and pleasant stay and renting both apartments would be a great option for a larger group. This year we were lucky enough to be there for some of the Vodnjan summer festival and were able to watch a couple of music concerts from the living room windows of Benussi. It really was just like being in a royal box! The staff in the cafe bar (Arka) below the apartment are very friendly, as are the locals in the apartment below. Arka is perfect for an evening drink and we always buy our morning coffee from there – much better than making your own. There is a good (Konzum) supermarket close by and a smaller shop in the square (selling most things). In Vodnjan there is also a fruit and vegetable and fish market and an excellent Pizza take-away. There are also two good restaurants; Girotondo which specialises in pizza and pasta and Vodnjanka which has a lovely roof terrace and serves excellent local specialities including beef with truffle sauce which is fantastic. Tessa has always been extremely helpful and is a good source of information. She always responds to emails promptly and efficiently.

                                                                                                5 of 5
                                                                                                We enjoyed every minute of our stay in Vodnjan, an authentic medieval town which seems largely untouched by tourism; just how we like it. Castello is a sympathetically restored apartment which overlooks the Square from the bedroom and the church tower from the living area. It has a spacious feel and is very comfortable. Our stay was in October which meant that the (very efficient) heating units were welcome. We only needed them at night though as the days were pleasant. It felt special to enter the building through the communal entrance and the stone hallway and spiral stairs evoked centuries past. Castello is welcoming with its wooden floors and neutral colour scheme. Everything you need is there and we enjoyed several meals at home, overlooking the tower and even a picnic on the roof terrace, with its wonderful views. The roof terrace is accessed via the attic, which was another highlight for me. The keyholders were welcoming on our arrival and helped us with where to park and to eat that night. The flat is beautifully clean (I understand that the caretakers live in another apartment in the building) and everyone we met in the building was friendly, even greeting us if they saw us in local bars. Tessa, the owner of the flat, provided excellent communication and made the whole thing very easy. The apartment was very easy to reach from Pula airport and as we'd hired a car, we could go anywhere in Istria that took our fancy. The motorways have tolls but these are cheap by UK standards and are practically empty, as are the main roads. We enjoyed the sightseeing around the hill towns and the coast and returned to Pula to see the amphitheatre but mostly enjoyed the hospitality around Vodnjan. I would recommend visiting the tourist office for advice about what to see, especially if you're going slightly out of season as we did. This was our first visit to Croatia and we look forward to going again for the beautiful scenery, friendly locals and authentic, unpretentious atmosphere. If we return to Vodnjan we shall certainly stay at Castello.
