Region

Nestled along Croatia’s enchanting Adriatic coastline, Istria welcomes visitors with open arms and a rich tapestry of experiences waiting to be unraveled. Whether you're seeking adventure in nature, indulgence in culinary delights, a glimpse into history and culture, or simply a warm and inviting atmosphere, the peninsula of Istria has it all.

Istria's diverse and unspoiled landscapes will be the first thing to capture your attention! The region is renowned for its lush green hills, rolling vineyards, and enchanting coastline: the stunning scenery is a playground for nature enthusiasts, hikers, and beachgoers alike.

Offering a remarkable 445 kilometres of pristine coastline, including tranquil coves and sandy beaches, visitors can find plenty of secluded spots to soak up the sun. The clear, azure waters of the Adriatic are perfect for swimming, snorkelling, and scuba diving, making it a fantastic choice for those who enjoy an active day of water sports.

Venture inland and you'll discover picturesque villages set amidst rolling hills and verdant forests. Istria is home to over 30 nature reserves - an absolute haven for hikers and cyclists, with an abundance of well-marked trails to explore. The Učka Nature Park, in particular, stands out as a hiking and nature lover's paradise, offering waterfalls, historic villages, and breathtaking panoramic views of Istria's outstanding scenery.

Istria's rich history is woven into the fabric of its towns and cities. An ever popular choice for tourists is the impressive port city of Pula, full of quaint town squares and local restaurants, and home to one of the most well-preserved Roman amphitheaters in the world. This ancient arena, known as the Pula Arena, is a testament to Istria's Roman heritage and hosts numerous events, including concerts and film festivals.

The medieval towns of Rovinj and Motovun enchant visitors with their cobbled streets and historic charm. The Euphrasian Basilica in Poreč, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is a stunning example of early Christian art and architecture.

Istria's culinary scene is a treat for the taste buds: the region is famous for its truffles, particularly the elusive white truffle, and you can savour dishes infused with this prized delicacy in charming local restaurants across the region. Wine and olive oil lovers will find joy in Istria's vineyards and olive groves, offering tastings and insights into traditional production methods. Fresh seafood, often served with a Mediterranean twist, is a staple that you can enjoy at quaint waterfront eateries along the coastline.

One of the most enduring memories visitors take away from Istria is the warmth of its people. The locals are known for their friendly, welcoming nature and their willingness to share their traditions and stories with tourists. You'll find yourself immersed in the local way of life, whether you're exploring ancient towns or enjoying a meal in a family-run tavern.

Istria is easily accessible, with Pula Airport serving as a major gateway. Once you arrive, navigating the region is a breeze with well-maintained roads connecting major towns and villages. Language barriers are minimal, thanks to the widespread use of English, Italian, and German, alongside the local Croatian language.

Istria’s unique blend of pristine landscapes, rich traditions, and warm-hearted locals creates an experience that will linger in your memories long after you've returned home.

Reviews

  • Peaceful

    on 08/04/2020

    This peaceful environment offers a stillness rarely found whilst on vacation. The villas are completed to a high standard and finished with tasteful furnishings and décor. The connection to the kitchen and all things culinary is an ongoing theme and good for larger groups of friends or family. The villas offer a perfect blend of activity (pool, golf) focus (yoga, reading), and creativity (cooking, playing board games) all of which help to root you in a sense of well-being. Being in the kitchen offers engagement and attention as the kitchen is open and a focal point for the dining, living room and large front terraces. The availability of fresh and special Croatian food supply from nearby markets and farmers makes cooking something deep and significant and it is about being in a relationship with all your guests. No time for restlessness at these villas you are fully settled into peace from the moment you arrive! 5 stars!

  • Ideal for relaxing

    on 08/04/2020

    Everything went really well and we had a great stay at the three villas- Villa Dorotea, Casa Dimas, and Casa Andrik. We were a group of 32 people celebrating our graduation and this place was ideal to relax and party a little bit. Also the communication with Andrea was really fast and without problems. We definitely want to come back again!

  • Great stay!

    on 15/08/2019

    We had a great stay in Villa Dorotea. The accommodation was perfect with each bedroom effectively being the same - so no conflict between guests. But most importantly the standard of accommodation (and its great air conditioning) was outstandingly good. But the highlight has to be the customer service which focused on the owner Andrea. He organised everything and nothing was ever a problem for him. We took his advice regarding where to go what to do, restaurants etc and all was just great. So, for us it was great accommodation, very good location, and great service

  • Amazing

    on 16/04/2019

    I had amazing experience in Villa Dorotea with my family and friends. Great hospitality, delicious food and above all excellent accommodation. The biggest highlight of our trip was organisation of tours across beautiful Istria by the property owners. We had a chance to try the best food and wines, to visit some unique places (castles, old city, etc.) and also to meet some really nice people.
