We are very pleased with our stay in Croatia. The house had everything as promised and even more. Very good service both before the trip by Andrej and Polly, and by the homeowners in Croatia during our stay. We can highly recommend Charming Croatia :) - Aug 2017

The pleasures of BLUE Istria

The seaside towns of Istria offer crystal-clear water and pebble beaches, romantic flavors and pastel-colored villages. Pula, Rovinj and Porec are some of Istria’s beautiful coastal towns that welcome a third of Croatia’s entire tourist population. Take a dip into the Adriatic while knowing that old town, cafes and shopping are just a walk away. The entire Istrian coastline has a length of nearly 445 km.

The GREEN Mediterranean

The best way to experience Istria is...slowly
Medieval villages, historical towns, never-ending vineyards, castles and churches, are scattered all over the region as their profiles stand out in the landscape. In this sparkling little postcard-world it's easy to relax and enjoy the wine that is blended into the landscapes of Istria. With the beaches and harbor towns being just a short drive away from the hilltops, Istria presents its visitors with a wide range of vacation activities to satisfy all demands.

Events in Istria summer 2017

There is more to Istria than medieval hilltop towns, never-ending hills, crystal-clear ocean and wonderful gastronomy. Throughout the year, local talent and resources create events that go one from early spring well into late summer. We've listed a few.

Fall Events in Istria 2017

We’re in the middle of summer but the Istrian locals are busy planning events for the entire year.  The fall calendar is already full with events that cover sports, food & drink, music, dance, history, design and culture.
