As soon as you see Villa Priroda, you know you will be staying somewhere very special. With a spectacular, sweeping view of the green hills around Motovun, this 4-bedroom villa in Istria is an exceptional base for your travels around the region, complete with an outdoor pool, spa and spacious terrace.

Situated to the north of Motovun, one of the area’s most beautiful towns, Villa Priroda has incredible scenery all around. The large outdoor area makes the most of this advantage, featuring a private infinity pool lined with sun loungers and a covered dining area with a barbecue. Floor-to-ceiling windows slide open to reveal a magnificent kitchen and dining space running parallel to the pool, with a view directly to the hilltop town itself.

The same indoor area also incorporates a lounge space with large flatscreen TV and ample sofa seating. It’s easy to wander across to get a drink from the large fridge freezer or take a bar seat at the sleek kitchen island. Another treat awaits you in the superb spa, which offers a large indoor hot tub with picture perfect view of Motovun, alongside a Scandinavian-style sauna cabin.

A quartet of beautiful bathrooms accompanies four well-appointed double bedrooms at Villa Priroda. There is room for eight guests at this villa, which offers air conditioning, parking, free Wi-Fi and much more.

The undeniable beauty of this inland Istria area will impress you. The delights of the coast are not too far away, with Novigrad, Poreč and other well-loved destinations within around 30-40 minutes’ drive. Visit Motovun in summer and you may catch the acclaimed International Film Festival, but this unspoilt old town with its far-reaching panoramas will delight at any time of year.

Sat high on a hill, the old, walled town of Motovun is one of the highlights of Northern Istria. As well as spectacularly verdant surroundings, the town offers attractive eateries, a smattering of architecturally interesting buildings and its own International Film Festival in summer. Around 15km away is the scenic Lake Butoniga, while Hum – the world’s smallest town, they claim – is not too far east.

It’s on this side of the Istrian peninsula that you’ll find the mountainous Učka Nature Park. The ideal terrain for hiking, biking and the like, this picturesque area nudges towards the fringes of elegant Opatija, a grand coastal resort that has attracted the highest in society for decades.

On the western coast of Istria, Novigrad is famed for its excellent restaurants and colourful waterfront. With the Old Town streets adorned with brightly hued umbrellas, Novigrad isn’t short of charm or history – the Church of St Pelagius and St Maximus, with its tall bell tower, is a distinctive landmark. The town hosts all sorts of cultural events throughout the year, and has some good family attractions nearby, such as the Špilja Mramornica caves and Aqualand Istralandia water park. It’s also great for foodies, with some excellent restaurants and the annual Gnam-Gnam Fest boosting its credentials.

Pretty little Buzet, about 20 minutes from Motovun, makes for an easy day out, and it’s worth staying for dinner and sampling the local delicacy of truffles. The sought-after fungi are the theme of the town’s annual Festival of Subotina in September, where participants share a giant truffle omelette to mark the start of truffle season.

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.

A wonderful place to get outside and have fun, Istria is full of attractions that kids will love. Croatia’s first ever water park, Aqualand Istralandia is just a 5-minute drive from Novigrad, and has enough pools, slides and rides to keep them busy all day. Poreč’s Aquacolors does too, and is just 30 minutes away.

Just a 10-minute drive from Aqualand Istralandia, geology lovers can discover the depths of the Špilja Mramornica caves, while in Poreč, there is also the spectacular Baredine Cave. Both offer guided tours which are sure to be an unforgettable adventure.

Also in Poreč, Motodrom is the go-to for go-karting, while the adjacent Sky Fox park has obstacle courses and lots more. If they like that, they will love Glavani Park, about 12km from Svetvinčenat, where zip wires and an 11m-high swing are among the energy-burning activities. Dinopark Funtana is ideal for kids who love dinosaurs, with more than 80 life-size, moving models. There’s lots more going on at this popular park, with a barbecue restaurant, live entertainment shows and a small zoo.

Its sheer popularity means there is always something going on in Rovinj, a town that’s great for shopping, dining and sightseeing. The views from the bell tower of St Euphemia’s Church are well worth the climb, even for kids, while summer is soundtracked by a fantastic music festival. There’s also plenty of entertainment down in Pula, where the awesome Roman Amphitheatre is the venue of choice.
