Set in the beautiful countryside with panoramic sea-views towards the island of Cres, guests at Villa Dora will experience true relaxation as well as the opportunity to explore this stunning part of Istria. It will be hard to leave your contemporary and welcoming holiday home with its own splendid swimming pool and sun terraces but pretty fishing villages, pristine beaches and towns rich in Istrian heritage as well as a wealth of activities are all within a short drive.
Villa Dora is situated next to neighbouring Villa Klara, with a similar layout, so it could be a perfect option for two families or a group of friends wanting to holiday together with a degree of independence. The villas are modern and have been decorated stylishly with white washed walls and bright splashes of colour, contemporary furnishings and good quality fixtures and fittings. The open-plan living and dining space downstairs opens out to wonderful terraces, the inviting swimming pool and well tended gardens. Upstairs you will find three of the four bedrooms, all with access to a terrace or balcony with pretty terracotta Mediterranean plants dotted around and yet more glorious views.
There is so much to explore in the nearby area. Follow the remote roads north to the popular restaurant ‘Martin Pescador’ in the village of Trget (8km) where you can enjoy fresh fish on the waterfront, or head the other way to find a pretty pebbly beach or hire a boat for beautiful vistas and even a spot of fishing. This area is perfect for hiking through the dense pine forests or there are some wonderful walking paths near the towns of Labin and Rabac.
You will find all the facilities you may need in the charming town of Labin (12km), a charming hilltop town with a rich history. Just a short drive from Labin is the larger beach resort of Rabac (16km), now a delightful spot for visitors to experience pristine white pebbled beaches, a great range of watersports and some excellent local cuisine.
Villa Dora offers you modern, contemporary comfort in an area steeped in rich Istrian heritage and natural beauty, the perfect combination for a wonderful Croatian holiday.

Villa Dora is set in beautiful countryside with panoramic views of the sea and the distant island of Cres. There is a beach within a short drive and you will find watersports such as kayaking stand up pedal boards and boats during the summer months at the nearby Autocamp Tunarica (3.5km). This area is perfect for hiking through the dense pine forests or exploring the coast by boat, even catching a fish or two to take back to your barbecue if you desire. Alternatively, head north to the popular restaurant ‘Martin Pescador’ in the village of Trget (8km) where you can enjoy fresh fish on the waterfront.
You will find all the facilities you may need in the charming town of Labin (12km). Make the most of your visit by heading to the narrow winding lanes of the old hilltop town, enjoying stunning views of the Kvarner coast and admiring the rich Istrian heritage with beautiful villas and Venetian palaces.
Just slightly further is Istria’s largest beach resort, Rabac (16km), formerly a fishing village with brightly painted houses on the steep hillside, and now a delightful spot for visitors to experience the delights of Istria. The town has pristine pebble beaches, such as Girandella plus a great choice of watersports from windsurfing, diving, water-ski to banana boats. If you visit in June head down to the Rabac Summer Carnival when the town comes alive with festivities. Should you wish to escape the summer crowds there are plenty of opportunities to head inland to explore the natural beauty and wildlife of this area and many hiking paths such as a walk through the pine forests from Rabac to Labin.
Island lovers may want to take an excursion across to the rugged island of Cres where you can truly get off the beaten track and discover the quiet and simple side to island life on one of the country’s least developed islands. If you prefer city life then Rijeka (75km) is worthy of a visit with its fascinating history, excellent restaurants and lively nightlife.
Martin Pescador, Trget
(8km / 15 mins )
This heart-shaped peninsula was the birthplace of modern Croatian tourism, and it’s easy to see why. Its history has bestowed it with Italian sophistication, most obviously seen in pastel-painted coastal towns, like romantic Rovinj. But, tear yourself away from the Istrian coast, through the vineyards, olive groves, and dense forests, and you will discover brilliantly preserved medieval towns and villages, where cobbled streets reveal quaint galleries, sweet squares and sea-views.
This home has plenty of fun and exciting activities on offer. The garden will no doubt be a favourite place to play games and of course there is the huge pool for playing and splashing about in – always a popular feature with our younger guests!
Blue-flag Girandella beach is well-suited to kids, where you can hire sun loungers and there are lots of beach cafes. There are several small, sheltered pebble bays with crystal clear water and gentle slopes, making it ideal for families with small children. For those more adventurous the villa is only 3.5km from Autocamp Tunarica, where you can take on water sport such as boats, kayak, pedal boats and stand up paddle boards.
In Pula, there is a fabulous and unique experience for kids aged 10 and above Underwater Park Verudela. Here, they can ride a bike at the bottom of the sea. Wearing a special helmet, children can walk around the seabed four metres underwater, feeding fish and holding shrimp with trained professionals. It's bound to be an memorable day for kids.
Take a day trip to Aquapark Istrialanda the area's original waterpark -which has fun water-based activities for the whole family. Boasting 20 water rides and the largest wave pool in the Mediterranean, it's bound to keep them busy and happy all day. Thrillseekers will love zooming along the high-energy water slides. Younger children can enjoy their own dedicated pool with a water castle, pirate ship and some gentle water slides.
Dinopark Funtana is a superb place to take kids who are fascinated with dinosaurs there are moving life-size dinosaurs and circus shows on offer. There are plenty of activities for kids to try, like a dino-themed shooting range.
