With its rich history, unspoilt coastline, crystal clear sea and wonderful climate, Croatia must surely be the Med’s best kept secret. This jewel on the Istrian Peninsula has a tangible Roman influence with old cities and medieval towns blending beautifully with pretty bays and picturesque harbours. Our holiday is based in Rabac, formerly a tiny fishing village and now a thriving resort with a continental ambience, historical town centre and a long promenade backing a string of pebble beaches. Enjoy a boat cruise around the rugged coastline or a stroll along peaceful paths as you take life in the slow lane. If you can tear yourself away, fascinating excursions give us a flavour of Italy andSlovenia with visits to Trieste and Ljubljana
