Sun and Sea including beaches, swimming, snorkeling, diving, fishing, and boat trips. The beaches here are rock and some pebbles. Bring 'sea shoes' or buy them here and enjoy the cleanest sea, most natural and beautiful beaches and the peace and quiet you have looked for and not found anywhere else!

 

Beautiful Blaz. This is a photo from Blaz just close by to us. The nature here is absolutely beautiful, although perhaps the beaches close to Krnica are nicer for bathing!

Historic including visits to Pula - the historic capital of Istria, Pazin with its museum / castle overlooking a spectacular gorge, Porec with its Euphrasian basilica and amazing mosaics and a host of well preserved hilltop fortified towns and villages; Motovun, Labin, Rovinj, Oprtalj, Pican, Groznjan, to name just a few! Croatia is very proud of its history and Istria has a great proportion of it.

  

Walking the Roman walls of MotovunThis view from the top of Motovun is always memorable but we can send you to a hundred of equal beauty. Why not drive to the top of Mount Ucka on a clear day and see the whole of Istria?
Cultural including a variety of music and other festivals, churches and monasteries with beautifully preserved  frescos, art galleries and museums. During the summer season there are traditional music fairs and interesting evenings out with accordions and other  Istrian instruments playing the night away.

  

Beram is a "must see" churchIn the fifteenth century a famous artist painted beautiful bible stories all around the walls of a little chapel in the middle of nowhere! Why? So you could visit them of course!
Activity - including horseriding, walking, cycling, (delivered direct to the door), go karts, 4x4, quad bikes, windsurfing, climbing, table-tennis, golf, paint ball,  grape and olive picking and so much more. We like being challenged and often have been in the past. So far we have amazed ourselves just how much variety there is. 

  

Go on, you can do it!Summer guests 2007 took an afternoon hire of quad bikes delivered to their front door exploring all that Glavani and surroundings have to offer.

Away Days for those who want to venture further afield, we can organize full day trips to Venice, the Postonja caves and Lipizaner horses in Slovenia, the stunning Plitvice lakes in central Croatia, even an airplane trip down to Dubrovnik. If you prefer to explore together as a family in the car then Zagreb is a fantastic city to drive to, Ljubljana and Lake Bled are beautiful, in fact there is too much in too short a time! But we always say Istria has it all and more so why venture further a field!

 

The grandest scene, Plitvica lakes.Sometimes pictures speak a thousand words and Plitvica must be all the books ever written. Although it is a very long day there and back it can be done (and has been!) Alternatively we can arrange a place for you to stay for a night.
