Self-Catering Holiday Rentals in Istria for Your Home Stay

The spectacular region of Istria is one of the most exciting to visit in Croatia. Renting a vacation home is a great option for those who really want to experience this beautiful Adriatic peninsula. The pretty town of Porec is a real favourite and has bays just south of the town called 'Blue' and 'Green', or 'Plava' and 'Zelena' to be more accurate, as well as 'Laguna' the lagoon so there's plenty of choice for visitors. Sightseeing in the Old Town of Porec is essential. See the wonderful gold mosaics at the 6th century Euphrasian Basilica, and walk the same street that the Romans walked when you stroll down the town's main street, Decamenus. Take a catamaran trip across to Venice from Porec for a day out with friends or enjoy a game of tennis at one of the 165 tennis courts nearby! Well known for its many facilities, Porec is a real favourite with sport lovers who come to enjoy tennis, windsurfing, sailing, cycling and hiking and more. Porec has great nightlife and is very popular with a young, lively International crowd. Pula is Istria's largest town and its Roman amphitheatre, the Arena is well preserved and is the 6th largest of the surviving amphitheatres in the world today. Summer concerts and events are held at the Arena, well worth attending if you get the chance. See Roman statues at the Temple of Augustus on the site of the ancient Roman forum, today a busy piazza where visitors can enjoy a coffee or beer at one of the many cafes. Book a holiday home near Pula during July to enjoy the Seasplash Festival, a dance event which features top international and local acts. Pula also hosts the Pula Film Festival which is one of Europe's oldest. In the past, famous guests have included Orson Welles, Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Relax with a cool drink at Uliks, or Ulysses cafes where a bronze bust of author James Joyce marks the fact that Joyce once taught English in Pula while working on his famous books. Take a boat trip to the Brijuni Islands from Pula, the kids will enjoy taking the little train around Veliki Brijun to see the island's safari park. Umag is the place to be in June when the Umagination Festival is a massive draw for visitors from all over Europe, and it's a great time to book a vacation home for yourself and friends. Umag has so much more to see, each July its international tennis centre is the venue for the Croatian Open. You'll never be short of interesting things to see and do in Istria and your self-catering holiday rental means that you have all the freedom to explore that you could wish for.
