The area is perfect for an active vacation. You can find a free climbing activity near the ruins of Dvigrad castle which is near our villas in Central Istria.
Our villa complex is far from the crowds but still close enough to the coastal destinations such as Rovinj, Porec and Pula. All these destinations are excellent and worth a one day trip from our Istrian villas.
Destinations for day trips in Istria
First, we recommend you to take a trip to historical towns on the coast!
- Porec lies on the Western coast. It is famous after the Euphrasian basilica which is enlisted as a UNESCO world heritage site.
