This region prides itself on family type tourism but its been my experience that it suits all types of holiday makers. All year round activities include Hunting, Fishing, Wine/olive oil/cheeses tours, festivals. Wine tours and truffle hunting can be arranged through the Owner. For young people look up the events guide for concerts and festivals and for the sporty types try the scuba diving, tennis, zip wires, Croatia's largest aquarium, horse riding etc....On the beach you will find entertainment for all. Go on an excursion, hire a boat, eat a home made ice cream, drink cocktails, have a spa treatment, play table tennis, go parasailing or go on a banana boat, take up jet skiing. try scuba diving. There is just so much to do locally, but hire a car is necessary for you to explore the Istrian Peninsula. Check out the many wine festivals on in the region or visit the vineyards and sample the beautiful wines of the area.Nestled in the hills near Labin, an Old Venetian town full of art galleries, fine restaurants and cafe bars. This was an old mining town steeped in history. The area is full of vineyards and beautiful countryside ideal for long walks or bike rides. The beautiful pebble beaches of Rabac is 2.5km away where you can enjoy all sea sports including scuba diving, jet skiing, sailing or daily excursions to the many islands.
