    “Quiet, small community with two small catering establishments (Pizzeria and Grill). Both very good, though little choice, and very reasonably priced. In the bay Sv. Nikola (about 10 minutes by car) there are great fish restaurant, almost directly on the sea with great views from the terrace. The village has a small department store, where the important thing is to buy, so you do not have an extra drive off the grocery shopping. Otherwise Gibt's nothing there.

    The next interesting places are Labin and Pula (about 35 minutes away) with opportunity for strolling, shopping, diverse restaurants and cultural activities (Festival in Labin in the summer months on different days). Near Rakalj there are three natural beaches, which are accessible by car, but only one with Catering Facilities / Catering (mentioned fish restaurant). Water very clean, NO sea urchins. Slippers still recommended (rocky pebble beaches).”

dishes on menu. The old town of Rakalj is the closest to the see but today it is mainly uninhabited. In that part there are ruins of the old castle and the church of St. Agnes to be found. The church is situated on the top of the hill offering magnificent view at the see. There are no regular Sunday Masses in the church accept on several traditional occasion a year. There are also wedding ceremonies in the St Agnes church. Couples come from nearby smaller towns as well as from bigger cities. At the site where the old middle age castle used to be the remains of the prehistoric hill-fort are found as well as remains of Roman fort. The castle itself was probably built at the beginning of the 11th century and was later known as Castellare de Rachir. In 1535 the Istrien VillaVenetians granted the Old Rakalj and the New Rakalj to the Loredan family but the castle was in such a bad condition that Loredans abandoned it and moved to today Rakalj.

For more extensive shopping there is – a town with more than 3000 years history, with the most preserved amphitheater in Europe and many other monuments from the ancient Rome period.

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.
