Mistical paradise


Istria is a land of medieval fortified towns atop hills rising above winding rivers and woods rich with truffles. It is crisscrossed with cycling routes and wine roads passing through thick olive oils and fragrant vineyards. Its green hart is bordered by the indented coast with a string of dynamic towns on the shore of the endless crystal clear sea.

Staying in Istria is a treat for all senses. The fresh sea air, filled with fragrances of soil and pine trees, revitalizes and fills with energy. Memorable vistas can be seen everywhere and numerous autochthonous specialties and internationally acclaimed local wines will thrill your palate.

In order to describe Istria, they often compare it with Provence or Tuscany. Although this comparison can help one get the idea, visiting Istria is a must indeed. So, if you can spare some time, we certainly recommend that you visit it.
