Boutique, authentic, unique

Continental Croatia meets the Adriatic in Istria, the heart-shaped, 3600-sq-km peninsula in the country's northwest. The bucolic interior of rolling hills and fertile plains attracts food- and culture-focused visitors to Istria’s hilltop villages, rural hotels and farmhouse restaurants, while the indented coastline is enormously popular with sun and sea lovers. The facilities on the coast are wide-ranging, the sea is clean and there are plentiful secluded spots.
