Istria – Rural Holiday Home Rentals

Blue, white and green are colors that mark Istria - the largest Croatian peninsula, situated on the northern Adriatic Sea, close to Slovenia and Italy. The blueness of the sea contrasts the green and white stone inside the charming town situated on the hills. The landscape of Istria was reminiscent of the most beautiful parts of Tuscany or Provence.
