Istria is increasingly popular with tourists, especially in the summer, but there are still a number of secluded spots to discover. The coastline here is dramatic, the water is crystal clear and, perhaps due to its proximity to Italy, the area has become well known for its gastronomy. You can find award winning wines, wild asparagus, pungent truffles & fresh seafood. We have properties near Umag, which is perhaps most famous for the ATP tennis tournament, held here every year since 1990. Umag also has a wealth of cultural, entertainment and sports facilities and there are several good restaurants within a short drive; Nono, Melon and Busčina all offering the best of Croatian cuisine.
The medieval town of Motovun is worth a visit, best known for film and jazz festivals but with many other fun activities, as well as coastal areas with an abundance of cultural and historical events. On the southernmost tip of the Istrian peninsula, just south of Pula is Cape Kamenjak – a small peninsula consisting of more than 30km of coastline with crystal blue sea, numerous coves and amazing beaches declared by the world famous tourist guide Lonely Planet as one of the Top 10 Beaches on the Mediterranean. With its historical charm, beautiful bays and sparkling seas, it is no wonder people are returning to Istria year after year.
