LOCATION

Our Villas on map​

Neighbourhood

Our villas are located in the village Kringa, a small place in Central Istria. Kringa is a popular destination for tourists and has a lot of vacation houses for rent. There are not a lot of neighbors around our villas. Those that are, are local residents and other holiday houses. 

A great advantage of coming to Kringa on a holiday is that you get to experience life in rural surroundings in the heart of Istria, but also, because of its location, whenever you want you can go and visit the coast, bigger places and towns around, and most of them are under 20 minutes of driving. In other words, you get the best of both worlds

There is a great Istrian restaurant just 100 meters from the the villas offering traditional Istrian food like boškarin goulash, beefsteak with truffles, pasta with truffles, and other specialties.

Why Central Istria?

Map highlighting central part of Istria

Although a big number of guests prefer places on the coast, in the last years, Central Istria is becoming more and more popular among travelers. There are more and more benefits to choosing Central Istria, over coastal towns.

The first and obvious reason is more peace. Compared to the coast where there are a lot of tourists, in Central Istria it is all more relaxed and stress-free.

You also have more privacy, because there are fewer houses and people on the same surface as on the coast. In many cases, accommodation on the coast has too many neighbors, windows, and balconies from where other people can watch you. Although not away a rule, there is less of that in Central Istria.

Another reason is the central geographical position. Since you are in the middle of Istria, that means you can easily drive to all parts of Istria, whether that is the west coast, east coast, south, or north. If you are staying for example in an accommodation on the west coast, then going to the east side is quite a journey.

There is also less traffic in Central Istria. You can go shopping or to the restaurant without moving slowly in heavy traffic. This also gives you more space for sightseeing as there are not always cars behind you. This also means less waiting in line in stores or waiting for a spot in restaurants.

Everything is also cheaper in Central Istria. Since there are not as many people here as on the coast, the businesses can’t put too high prices, making it easier on the wallet for everyone.

As Central Istria rises in popularity, a lot of small businesses are being opened here focused on food, activities, amusement, etc. expanding the tourist offer which is great for locals and guests coming here.

Everybody knows about bigger popular towns in Istria like Poreč, Rovinj, and Pula. And although they have the most sightseeing content, there are also a lot of small and unique places in Central Istria which are so interesting to explore. Everyone can go to visit the church in Rovinj, but what about the water spring deep in the woods of Central Istria, or some isolated hill near the lake? Come here and find out.

You can find out more about Central Istria by visiting the official website of the Tourist board of central Istria

Frequently Asked Questions

Most online bookings are made through so-called OTAs (online travel agencies), where companies and private owners list accommodation for rent, and they pay these OTAs a commission on every booking for their services. Those types of booking are indirect bookings where there is a middleman between guests and a provider of accommodation.

On the other hand, direct bookings are bookings without the middleman made directly with the provider of accommodation. The provider can be an owner of the house or a local company in charge of the bookings.

The biggest benefit for the guests is a better price for the accommodation. Since there is no middleman, the accommodation provider can afford to give a discount to the guest.

The benefit for the accommodation provider is that they don‘t have to depend on other business subjects to bring them bookings, and they can set their own rules and policies which are often limited while using OTAs.
