Villas in Istria

The coastline here is impressive, the water is crystal clear, there are stunning beaches and, perhaps due to its proximity to Italy, the area has become rather well known for its gastronomy. Foodies will be in heaven with award winning wines, wild asparagus, pungent truffles and fresh seafood amongst some of the delicious delights on offer.

The beaches are beautiful and varied and you will find both family-friendly bays with shallow, calm waters, to dramatic surf with exciting water sports scattered along the coast.   We have properties set in the countryside with romantic views and peaceful surroundings, to sea view stunners where every window is filled with sapphire blue from the ocean vistas.  With its historical charm, beautiful bays and sparkling seas, it is no wonder people are returning to Istria year after year.


Things we love…
“There is so much to love about this area.  Mesmerising scenery, crystal clear waters, lovely people and THE FOOD!  Foodies will love it here as there is such emphasis on gastronomy.  Fresh ingredients like fish and seafood, hearty stews, fabulous olive oils and rare truffles are in abundance here.”

Things to be aware of…
“As with much of Croatia, the beaches are beautiful but rarely sandy.  Pack your beach shoes!  Many of them have pebbles and shingle which is harder underfoot but is also partly responsible for the crystal clear, turquoise, seas that you won’t see anywhere else in the world.”

 – Ginnie, Managing Director
