Apartment is virtually in the heart of the old town. In evenings there is always some kind of activity at Piazza della Liberta during summers. Due to Venice’s long rule on the west coast and in Istria’s interior, you can enjoy Venetian architecture. The most beautiful examples of Venetian palaces, although dimensionally modest, are those in Porec/Parenzo.
Town webcam is at the following address (it shows in real time immediate surroundings of the condo):
There are numerous beaches to the right and left of the town (or the condo), some are on a walking distance (depending on the beach 2 min walk or longer) and those farther ones can be reached by boat, like beaches in Green Lagoon. Due to interesting coastline, boat trip is rather exciting.
There is an island right across the old town. Those beaches can be reached by boat.
We have considerable experience in beach life worldwide, so we can confirm that for a quiet enjoyment of clear waters with no major currents, this is unique.
Apart from rare occasion of a wave of jelly fishes, waters do not sport anything dangerous either.
It is spa like atmosphere of baths in other parts of the world.
There are very few sandy beaches.
Venetians love to vacation in Istria due to quality of its beaches.
Porec/Parenzo is a touristic town on the coast of Istra/Istria not far from Lim fjord with well-developed infrastructure for tourists.
There are mini-trains going to the right and left of the old town - these go to hotel areas like Blue Lagoon - beaches are free access, no hotel private beaches exist only pool areas. You would need a mini-train only if you wish to go farther. Many hotels have wellness centers.
Numerous cultural events occur during summer from classical music concerts to jazz.
