Croatia villas in Istria – Tourism


The stunning Istrian Peninsula has been home to a thriving tourism industry since the 19th century, when a range of hotels, apartments and Croatia holiday villas were constructed in the area. Visitors are often drawn to the peninsula in search of the fantastic climate found here; it has warm summers, mild winters and over 2,380 hours of sunshine each year. July is one of the most popular months for guests in our Croatian villas, as temperatures average 24°C, whilst temperatures in February usually reach about 6°C.

Summer holidays in Croatia and Italy

Tourists originally flocked to the area due to its proximity to Trieste, the largest seaport in the Habsburg monarchy. Nowadays there are regular buses between Istria and Trieste: why not enjoy a day trip to Italy during a stay in NOVASOL’s direct holiday homes? In fact, Istria continues to be popular with Italian tourists and the town of Muggia, located on the last stretch of Istrian soil before you reach Italy, now belongs to Italy. Italian is also recognised as the second official language.
