The property met our needs perfectly as a base for a two week exploration of Istria, somewhere we knew little about beforehand. Its position overlooking the main square gave us a good chance to 'get under the skin' of a small Istrian town where locals were in the majority. A hire car, though, also allowed us to visit the many and varied coastal and inland attractions that Istria boasts - and several, including early Fazana and Rovinj, we liked so much that we made multiple visits.
Vodnjan itself has a relatively small number of restaurants and bars but there is definitely enough to keep you going when not doing 'road trips'.
The Vodnjanka restaurant was definitely the best option, although booking is advised.
We were lucky enough to be have our holiday coincide with several events and festivals in the town plus a few (free) concerts in small buildings or the 'open air cinema'.
Your first port of call should be the Touring Info office (also on the main square) - they were very helpful in explaining what was coming up in and around the town.
We had a great stay for 2 nights in Pula, Edis provided us with great service, suggestions on what to see in Pula and allowed us to check into the apartment early. This is a VERY nice place to stay. It is in a quiet residential area, the apartment is new and very well equipped with everything that you might need, there is a lovely garden. This would be a very comfortable and easy place to stay in for quite a while. The apartment is perfect for a couple travelling. All in all, a nice and clean apartment with a great host! Thank you!
