Ein sehr zu empfehlender, schöner Ruhe-und Ausgangspunkt in den Bergen Istriens

  • 4 of 5

Unsere vierjährige Tochter und wir hatten einen wunderbaren Aufenthalt in den Bergen Istriens. Unsere Vermieter waren beide sehr nett und hatten immer ein offenes Ohr für unsere Belange /sei es Tipps für Ausflüge, frische Wäsche oder den kleinen Schnack zwischendurch)- alles lief reibungslos. Unsere Wohnung war klein aber liebevoll hergerichtet! Besonders hervorzuheben war die Ruhe dort in dem 100 -Seelen Dorf, welcher aber einen sehr guten Ausgangspunkt für alle möglichen attraktiven Ziele bot! Einen Animationsurlaub kann man dort sicher nicht erwarten- Eigeninitiative ist gefragt! Aber dafür wird man reichlich belohnt mit wunderschönen Zielen wie Opatjia, Lovran, Pula, Buzet istrische Bergdörfer, die Insel Crew usw...

Brest pod Uckcom bietet selber keine Lokalitäten aber auf dem Weg nach Buzet (dort gibt es die nächsten größeren Einkaufsmöglichkeiten) gibt es ein sehr nettes und preislich adäquates Restaurant names Daniela oder in Buzet das Stana mit Trüffeln allerfeinster Art!

Wir kommen gerne wieder!!

Le logement est très bien situé. La maison est magnifique et les propriétaires adorables. Nous avons apprécié le calme, le soin et la propreté du logement, les échanges avec Nora ainsi que ses conseils.

Nous avons adoré l'Istrie. Merci pour tout à Nora!!!

Restored Stone Villa with modern interiors in northern Istria, Croatia, close to the borders with Slovenia & Italy. Situated in a small hillside village called Brest pod Uckom with stunning views of the valley and mountains all around. It is in the heart of the Ucka Nature Park with hundreds of kilometers of marked hiking and mountain biking trails right at the doorstep. Explore the Vela Draga canyon within the park offering sheer cliffs for alpinists and sports climbers. The famous Opatija Riviera is only 30 kilometers away for beaches and seaside dining and shopping. Ideal for a relaxing holiday. Self-catering apartment in a peaceful secluded location. Perfect sunny Mediterranean weather. Views of truffle forests, rolling hills and valleys, Venetian-built hilltop towns. Enjoy your coffee and breakfast in your private garden. Hike and bike the trails of Ucka park. Nearby horse ranches offer horse riding and if you still need more then cool off at the beaches of Opatija. Road biking lovers will find the small roads in inland Istria quiet even in high season, and they are perfect to explore the numerous tiny Italianesque hamlets and villages and admire the views. Dining choices are spectacular! Award-winning restaurants, like 'Zigante', 'Toklarija' and many more, serve fresh truffle or wild asparagus or wild mushroom dishes daily in the nearby towns and villages. We recommend you try the local “konobas”………..fresh seasonal country food and local wines……….wonderful and very affordable prices!
