The village of Vabriga forms part of Tar-Vabriga county on the western side of Croatia’s Istrian peninsula. This naturally beautiful area is perfect as a travel destination with its Adriatic coastline and reliably warm temperatures.

It is these which make it ideal for olive oil production, with the olive oil of Tar-Vabriga considered by the UN’s Food and Agriculture Organisation to be the best in Europe.

This historically rich region is full of old churches and archaeological sites. The church of St Martin in Tar is nowadays known as the location of classical music concerts during the summer. An annual treat since 1998, these free concerts attract high-calibre musicians from Croatia and elsewhere, and are justifiably popular with visitors.

Numerous restaurants in Vabriga, Tar and the coastal area of Lanterna introduce the fine Istrian cuisine – lookout for a variety of fish and seafood dishes, truffles and asparagus on the menus. Much like the olive oil, the area’s wine is top-notch too, with wine-making an essential part of Istria’s culture – in short, don’t miss out on a glass or two.

Around 12km south lies the town of Poreč, which attracts many visitors to its Roman Old Town. You’ll find the remains of temples and fortification walls, and – most significantly – the Episcopal complex of Euphrasian Basilica, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Poreč is also known as a great cycling destination, and its central location makes it a good base for further exploration of the region. Rovinj lies around 30km to the south, and it’s not much more than an hour from Italy, with a beautiful slice of Slovenia even closer.

Region

Poreč is a charming town situated on the western coast of the Istrian Peninsula in Croatia, known for its rich history, stunning beaches, and vibrant Mediterranean atmosphere. Poreč’s blend of historical sites, vibrant culture, and natural beauty make it it an enticing location for tourists of all ages.

The main street of Poreč, the Decumanus, is lined with quaint shops, cozy cafes, and traditional Istrian restaurants, offering a delightful blend of the town’s rich past alongside modern-day living. The town's historic centre is a labyrinth of cobbled streets and narrow alleys that reveal hidden treasures at every turn, inviting visitors to explore the heart of Poreč on foot.

A short stroll from the Decumanus is one of the most iconic landmarks in Poreč, the Euphrasian Basilica. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, this stunning complex dating back to the 6th century, showcases remarkable Byzantine architecture and breathtaking mosaics that recount religious stories. Visitors can admire the intricate details of the mosaics and soak in the ambiance of a structure that has withstood the test of time.

Beyond the historical streets, Poreč is famous for its breathtaking beaches. The pristine Adriatic coastline beckons sun-seekers and water sports enthusiasts. Zelena Laguna, Plava Laguna, and Brulo Beach are just a few of the coastal areas worth exploring. You can bask in the Mediterranean sun, take a dip in the clear blue waters or, if you’re feeling adventurous, then snorkelling, jet skiing, or paddle-boarding are all exciting options offered along this glorious stretch of coastline.

For those who want to go a little deeper and explore the underwater world, Poreč offers fantastic diving opportunities! The waters surrounding the town are teeming with marine life and colourful coral reefs. Dive centres are readily available for both beginners and experienced divers, ensuring that everyone can explore the magic beneath the surface of the Adriatic Sea.

Hop on a boat trip and venture to the nearby Brijuni Islands, where nature enthusiasts and history buffs alike will have plenty of exciting activities on offer. This collection of islands is one of Croatia’s eight national parks, and is famous for its diverse nature and rich history. With attractions such as a safari park with exotic animals, and the island’s famous dinosaur footprints, it’s a wonderful place to explore as a family.

For travellers interested in exploring beyond the town, Poreč is ideally located for day trips to other Istrian destinations. Just a short drive away, you'll find Rovinj, a picturesque coastal town with a vibrant artistic community that is brimming with creativity. Motovun, a hilltop village town known for its absolutely stunning views, is also an easy day trip. These nearby destinations add to the allure of Poreč as a base for exploring the diverse beauty of the Istrian Peninsula.

Poreč and the surrounding area offers a wide array of dining options for you to indulge in the local dishes. From seafood to truffle-infused pasta and regional wines, the plethora of independent restaurants provide an authentic culinary journey through the Istrian cuisine, renowned for its delicious flavours and fresh ingredients.

From the ancient Euphrasian Basilica to the bustling Poreč Market, this town has something for every traveler. So, whether you're interested in history, culture, nature, or simply relaxing on the beach, Poreč has it all. Its year-round appeal ensures that visitors can enjoy its beauty and charm in any season.

Reviews

  • Stunning interiors

    on 30/09/2018

    This villa is for those with discerning taste and an appreciation for interior design. The outside area is also perfect for larger groups. The kitchen is small but is able to cope with 14 people (although not everyone can be a cook). Close to a supermarket with a sweet restaurant in the village its good as a centre to explore. The sea is less than 10 minutes away by bike or car. There is a very popular and lively 'Centre Parc's very close by which if you have children and teenagers is a plus. The owners were very kind and gracious making my niece's birthday by organising a birthday cake and delivering (no mean feat as it was a 40-minute drive to the best bakery in the area). We enjoyed an afternoon in the nearby go-karting / tree top experience, hired a boat for the day and had fun celebrating local fetes during the month of August.
