The province of Istria, known as Istarska Zupanija, is situated on the west coast of Croatia. The atmosphere here is similar to that of Tuscany but with the special charm of the Adriatic. The countryside is green, with many vineyards, dotted with medieval fortified towns and villages and numerous charming little fishing ports along the coast. This is a land rich with truffles, wine and music and an ideal choice for a relaxing summer holiday away from it all. Porec is one of the most popular seaside resorts in Istria, much appreciated for its beautiful nature, stunning, sandy beaches and its old town with many historical monuments.
