What to do in Istria outside of your holiday villa
Although it might be tempting to spend your whole holiday relaxing at one of our stunning luxury villas, you won’t want to miss exploring the area further. There is so much to see and do!
Istria is the most famous and largest Croatian peninsula, located in the northern part of the Adriatic Sea. Rich history, picturesque towns, well-preserved nature and irresistible Istrian delicacies – everything you need for the perfect vacation!
Istria has a rich heritage, stretching all the way back to the Romans, and still bursting with activity in the medieval era. The area is full of cultural monuments and archaeological sites – ideal for history buffs!
In addition to its beautiful heritage sites, you’ll enjoy Istria’s many other cultural offerings, like traditional Istrian dress, folklore, singing and unique Istrian cuisine. So, leave the comforts of your luxury villa behind and explore all that Istria has to offer!
Discover the towns on the coast of Istria
If you are a fan of fresh sea air and coastal towns, you’re in luck, because many of our luxury villas in Istria are situated in gorgeous little cities along the Istrian coastline. The most famous of them are Opatija, Pula, Rovinj, Poreč, Novigrad or Umag – they’re all well worth a visit!
Cities like Rovinj or Poreč fully evoke the charm of smaller Istrian towns with their narrow streets, stone houses and peaceful nature, with lovely sea views.
When in Pula, make sure to hit the water – spend a day at the Hawaiian Cove or the Gortanova uvala beaches. Or, if you are more into city sightseeing, go visit the Double Gate, the church and the monastery of St. Francis; the luminous giants, the Pula amphitheatre, the Arch of Sergius, the Temple of Augustus or the Pula Aquarium.
In Poreč, you can visit the famous Euphrasian Basilica, which dates back to the 6th century – perfect if you have an interest in Byzantine architecture. And if your Istrian luxury villa is situated in the lovely village of Rovinj, we recommend you climb the tower of St. Euphemia, the largest point of the city, for an unforgettable view of the whole of Rovinj and its surroundings.
Along with Poreč and Rovinj, Umag is also a must. It is a very special city, where the Italian influence on Istria is much clearer than in other towns in the region. Umag also hosts many traditional events such as the Umag Night Run, Sea Star Festival and 100 miles of Istria or Istria Granfondo. A few miles outside of Umag, you’ll find another popular holiday destination, at the westernmost place in Croatia: the lighthouse of Cape Savudrija.
We are certain that after a whole day of city sightseeing, there’s nothing you’ll love more than sinking into bed in your luxury villa in Istria.
Enjoy the countryside outside of our Istria villas
In addition to many towns on the coast, it’s well worth visiting towns in the rural parts of Istria, such as Motovun, Hum and Labin. Or you might want to rent a luxury villa in Istria’s countryside!
The town of Motovun is best known for its interesting architecture. The town is full of bell towers and ramparts, surrounded by the beautiful Motovun forest.
Although the whole of Istria is full of greenery and nature, some areas are so beautiful that they have been turned into nature parks. The beautiful Brijuni National Park encompasses a cluster of islands, where you can spend an entire day. The Učka Nature Park is also a recommended destination for everyone who loves soothing nature sounds. Other national parks worth visiting are the Sečovlje Ornithological Park, Cape Kamenjak and Istarske toplice.
By the end of a long day out in the fresh air of Istria’s gorgeous nature parks, you’ll be sleeping like a baby in your luxury villa.
