There are several restaurants in Pjescana Uvala, for all prices. Previous guests have chartered a yacht from the marina, enjoyed walking, sightseeing and some a good book and a glass of wine on the terrace! It's the location of this apartment which makes it special ! Pjescana Uvala is beautiful and possibly the best area of Pula. You will always love the view.
The apartment is in Istria and this is a very special part of Croatia. This is because there is so much to see and do, within a very close area. Pula has stunning Roman antiquities as well as some lovely pebble beaches. The area of Cape Kamenjak is an area of outstanding natural beauty. Wonderful views, walks, beaches including the Safari Bar - well known place to grab lunch in among the shade of the sea grass. Rovinj, Porec and Vrsar are all about 30 - 45 minute drive. Each 3 are stunning harbour towns with cobbled streets cascading down from Bell Towers to Marinas. Plenty of shops in Rovinj and Porec. Vrsar is particularly beautiful around the Bell Tower and Church with views over the coast and islands. Vrsar has a sculpture park.
A trip to Brijuni Islands is a memorable trip. It's a boat trip from Fazana (20 minutes from Pula). The islands are beautiful and were once the home of President Tito. There is a very interesting museum showing his life history.
Novigrad is a lovely coastal town with restaurants and a marina and harbour. It also has a new water park which has recently opened if you like water slides! It is a 50 -60 minute drive from the apartment.
The east coast of Istria stretches all the way from Pula to Opatija. Labin is about a 40 minute drive. It's another lovely town with another Bell Tower and cobbled streets. It is home to many artists who have galleries. There is a sculpture park just outside town. On the coast below Labin is Rabac. This town has lovely small coves and a harbour. It is a little developed. After Labin, the east coast road is stunning as it hugs the coastline so the views are over the islands of Cres and Krk. Its a wonderful drive and after 20 minutes you will arrive at Moscenika Draga. Wonderful seaside town. Quite small. Restaurants all hug the beach. The is a lovely harbour. The Beach is very beautiful....however if you walk along the back of the beach a path leads to another beach which is just a little nicer and less busy. Many people do not know it exists! Then the coast continues to Opatija - a large town with boutiques and restaurants. The architecture is Austro Hungarian and the cars are Italian, red and sports cars!
However to go to Istria and only see the coast is to miss so much. Istria has a heart to it. Vineyards you can drop into and do some wine tasting, Olive groves to sample olive oil, Hill Towns, Stunning hills and views. Motovan is a small stunning hill town with beautiful little shops and galleries. Groznjan is another stunning little hill town. It is home to about a dozen art galleries and not much else...apart from the views, views and more views. There are a couple of restaurants.
How to get there?: There are now several chartered flights direct to Pula from the UK - Thomson Flights is worth looking at. These are reasonable value outside of school holidays. Alternatively you can fly with Ryanair straight to Pula. Also Ryanair from various locations to Trieste in Italy (about 2 hour drive). Easyjet offer a service to Venice Marco Polo from several airports in the UK. Ryanair fly to Treviso/Venice.This will take about 3 hours by car after that, but worth considering if Ryanair/Stansted is a bit far in the UK. Easyjet also fly to Ljubljana in Slovenia and this is about 2 hour drive.
