Istria & Opatija
Described as Croatia’s Tuscany with the rolling hills, magnificent local wine sorts, breathtaking landscape, scrumptious truffles and award winning olive oil which make Istria a truly fabulous destination! It will enchant you with
its coastline and settlements sitting aloft hills overlooking
dreamlike valleys full of vineyards and olive groves. Sometimes it feels like time stands still with the Venetian influence strongly felt, whilst on the other hand magnificent hotels and golf courses have blended in so subtly not to disturb the architecture left to us by masters of times gone by.
In such a compact location you can visit the towns of Rovinj and Porec or catch a ferry to Venice. Istria is accessible from a number of airports in its vicinity such as Pula, Rijeka, Zagreb and even Ljubljana and Trieste. The town of Opatija boasts a number of luxury hotels, villas and event venues for any type of corporate function. It was a favourite destination of the Austrian imperial family with the first luxury hotel built
in late 19th century.
