About our home

Our home is a spacious, sunny, 3 story semi-detached house in one of the best neighborhoods in Pula. It has 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and 3 large terraces, as well as a private parking and a small garden. The third story is Jason’s office and storage area, and the only area of the home that we would lock. The kitchen has a fridge, a dishwasher, a microwave, a coffee maker, a blender, and even a crocpot. There is a washer and a drier, WiFi, and flat screen TV with international channels (HBO can be added upon request).

Shops, bars and restaurants are at walking distance, and the main historic attractions such as the amphytheatre are only 5 minutes by car. The house is only 1.5 miles (2.5 kilometers) away from the beach, and the marina is even closer in case you want to rent a yacht, a boat or a jet ski.

A catamaran connects Pula to Venice and the trip takes only 3 hours.

The region of Croatia where Pula is located is called Istria, and it offers a number of fascinating places to visit, such as:
-Rovinj, a gorgeous small town build on an island in the 7th century, now connected to mainland, has many art galleries and excellent restaurants
- Porec, a town that is famous for its Unesco world heritage site basilica Eufrasiana
- Morovun, a gem of inland Istria, surrounded by forests famous for truffles, and nearby Groznjan
- The Church of Saint Mary near Beram with amazing 15th century frescoes painted in its interior
- Brijuni national park, 15 minutes by car, followed by a 20 minute boat ride
- Plitvice national park, only 3 hours by car
