HOST: Helianna Orr
Istria is Croatia's wine country! If you are looking for a relaxing reset, this will be your trip! We will go wine tasting, explore, kayak, sail, and just relax next to our private pool... It will be a mix of Istria and sailing, so it will be a great mix!
Continental Croatia meets the Adriatic in Istria (Istra to Croats), the heart-shaped, 3600-sq-km peninsula in the country's northwest. The bucolic interior of rolling hills and fertile plains attracts food- and culture-focused visitors to Istria’s hilltop villages, rural hotels and farmhouse restaurants, while the indented coastline is enormously popular with the sun-and-sea set. Though vast hotel complexes line much of the coast and the rocky beaches are not Croatia’s best, facilities are wide-ranging, the sea is clean and secluded spots are still plentiful.
