So lovely and near at the same time

Istria | The way to the next vacation can sometimes be so close: Just a few hours journey time by car it takes to reach the sunny peninsula Istria in Croatia when approaching from Italy. The abundance of Mediterranean vegetation appears here particularly in form of picturesque wine hills, lush green forests and olive groves which stretch out along the turquoise coloured Mediterranean Sea. Vacationers appreciate Istria not only for its delightful landscape but also for its many great beaches which can be found here along Croatian Adriatic Coast. Particularly nice conditions for a beach vacation and at the same time a big choice of holiday apartments and houses are offered for example in Medulin which is a former fishing town on the southern tip of Istria. The blue sea and the marvellous beaches don’t only lure sun lovers and occasional swimmers: Whether windsurfing or diving – Medulin is also an ideal water sport area. Not far away from Medulin is the town of Pula. In Istria’s biggest town – and at the same time the cultural and economic centre – you can visit the gigantic amphitheatre and the well preserved Augustus Temple both dating back to the Roman era. The popular resort Poreč situated in the western part of Istria has a number of nice beaches and is also an ideal starting point of many day trips – for example to the islands of Brijuni or into the idyllic hinterland. Those who are on the search for a tan might want to pop to one of the many offshore islands that are serviced by boat shuttles where you can alternatively seek a shady place. If you are looking to cool off a visit to a nearby limestone cave Baredine could be a good option. Another great place to recharge your batteries is the charming spa resort Opatija which lies on the other side Istria on the border to Kvarner Gulf.

atraveo provides you with more than 9,500 holiday apartments and houses in Istria. Many of them are situated around the bigger towns of Pula, Poreč, Medulin, Rabac and Umag. But there are also some pretty holiday homes on offer away from the major centres. You can find more information and tips also in the holiday home selection for Istria.

    “Pula is a very beautiful city with amazing cultural heritage sites (especially from the Roman, Austro-Hungaran period). It offers endless beaches 5-20min by car from the city center. Beaches are very beautiful now and it is hard to imagine how beautiful they are in the summertime. People are super friendly, food is very good and there are several coffee/beer places we recommend: jazz bar Fiorin, Cvajner, Cabahia, etc
    We went on a bike tour to Kamenjak which we highly recommend if you want to spend time in nature and have some adventure. We plan to visit Pula again in July, when the Pula film festival starts.”

Rob is the island furthest north of Dalmatia, full of beaches and particularly popular with tourists due to its historical town center.
Krk is the largest island in Croatia, situated a short distance from the city of Rijeka. Thanks to its mild climate, there are vines and olive trees which produce oil and wine of excellent quality.


The centre of Pula is only 8km away, where it is possible to visit numerous ruins from the Roman era including the amphitheatre. The medieval fortress of Pula is very interesting and by walking through this beautiful Mediterranean town it is possible to see several other places of historical interest. It is worth organising a trip to the Brijuni Islands which can be reached by ferry with departure from Fazanna. The Kamenjak peninsula, south of Pula, is a natural park where you can find many rocks where diving and swimming in the sea is possible.
