    Nestled in the Istria peninsula of Croatia, Villa Tulip is only fifteen miles from the lovely cobbled streets and coast side market town of Rovinj.

    The nearest airport is Pula Airport, at some twenty-one miles from the villa.

    Žminj, is a small and traditional town, offering abundant local flavour, in the heart of Istria. Istria, formerly part of Italy, retains many Italian influences today and is known for its simple way of life, preserved nature and pretty, coastal towns and islands.

    In the old stone town centre of Žminj, which is set on a hill, there is a beautiful church, while the newer part of the town extends into the valley. This part of Croatia offers a traditional and rustic way of life; three generations of the same family will be seen sitting outside their homes in the evening watching the world go by, the local restaurants are family run and many families produce their own vegetables, fruit and wine - ingredients that make up the wonderful Istrian cuisine.

    Along the roads, beside the paths, in fields or meadows, visitors will come across "kažun" - small stone houses that the inhabitants used to use as storage houses for food, tools, or as a shelter from the rain - adding to the sense of local charm within the area.

    Žminj is the traditional host of one of the most popular folk festivities in Istria: the Bartulja (at the end of August), dedicated to St. Bartholomew, patron of Žminj- these colourful events give a vibrant insight to the local way of life. Other traditional events are the Chakavian Assembly, a contest of young poets and reciters of poetry in the Chakavian dialect and the Harmonica Wedding, a competition in accordion-playing.

    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.
