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.

Vi hadde en fantastisk uke i Benevenuti villa i September. Først og fremst må jeg si at villaen ser fin ut på bildene men når man kommer dit er den bare helt nydelig og enda finere enn man hadde forestilt seg! Omgivelsen er helt fantastiske og man føler seg så ivaretatt av familien som eier villaen. Vi synes huset hadde alt vi kunne ønske oss med basseng, store fine soverom og bad, spiseplass ute og grill. I tillegg må jeg si det er utrolig hyggelig å kunne plukke salat, frukt og grønnsaker i hagen - så autentisk. Fiken er blitt vår nye favoritt etter besøket. Ellers hadde vi en veldig koselig vinsmaking og omvisning der de laget vinen, så det anbefales virkelig. Vi leide bil og kjørte rundt til forskjellige områder så føler vi fikk sett utrolig mye på en uke. Til slutt må jeg bare takke Charming Croatia for utrolig god service på alle plan. Dokument med anbefalinger før vi dro og anbefalinger underveis når vi trengte noen råd. Utrolig proft og personlig på samme tid. Jeg gleder meg allerede til å planlegge neste reise til Kroatia og er ikke i tvil om at Charming Croatia benyttes igjen. Tusen takk for tidenes ferie! - Sep 2018

Authentic and Charming at Villa Benvenuti. Beautiful countryside location, among vineyards and olive groves. The house is beautifully restored with lot of space inside, large delightful bedrooms and 4 lovely bathrooms, sheltered garden with pool and beautiful outdoor "lounge" with roof and its own fireplace. A guided tour in the vine production with wine tasting is a must - remember extra suitcase for shipment of wine home, it's excellent wine. Improvements: The house should have 6 sun beds instead of 4, the water kettle needs to be replaced. Very nice hosts and staff at the vineyard, a visit to the local "Agroturizmo Stefanic" 2 km walk is a must - excellent local food and wine, there is also short distance by car to many beautiful places both inland and on the coast. (Motovun, Novigrad, Porec, Rovinj and Pula) PS! Always good with some cash in Croatia We were seven girls from Norway and we really enjoy our stay the last week of August :-) - Aug 2018

Vi er veldig fornøyd med oppholdet hos villa Benvenuti! Et fantastisk fint hus. For oss med barn i flere aldre, så var der helt perfekt! Vertskapet var også fantastisk. Vinsmakingen var også veldig bra og interessant å høre om. Dette huset og vertskapet, anbefales på det sterkeste! Vannkokeren i huset tror jeg bør skiftes ut, av og på bryteren funka ikke. Ellers ingenting å utsette på oppholdet! - Aug 2018

To comment on Charming Croatia, their treatment was excellent. I received quick answers when I booked and they offered a personal touch with a welcome letter in the house. You got the impression that they were always available and it was a good feeling to know they were available in case we needed anything. I hope I can come back with more bookings in the future and I will recommend this to other friends. - July 2018

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

Thanks for the wonderful service of our holiday in Rovinj. Villa Alice was cozy, nice and full service from morning to evening. Enjoyed many nice experiences in beautiful Istria. We visited the beautiful city of Groznjan :) Would highly recommend Charming Croatia to anyone - July 2017

Istria surprised and impressed us! The whole area has a lot to offer - everything from charming villages to sunny beaches. We found the food to be amazing as well as the service that goes with it. We stayed in two different spots- Vrsar and Porec. Vrsar iz a really cozy little fishing village. We booked hotel Vista and highly recommend it. The lounge area is amazing! One evening we took a taxi to Rovinj and enjoyed exploring the quaint streets after a nice meal in town. Highly recommend restaurant Puntulina! But make sure to book a table in advance, the place is popular and always full. We enjoyed our next stop, Porec also. It’s larger than Vrsar and offers many restaurants, cafes and plenty of beaches. We’ll gladly return! - Aug 2017
