We have been visiting Medulin for last four years. We love the climate, the food , and the people. Last year we decided to look for a property and we found this one. It is in a lovely quiet location , with an unspoilt view of the sea. The shops , bars and restaurants are all only a short walk away, but out of earshot. My wife wanted to be near the sea , and this is perfect. The beach nearby is ideal for the children, as it is very shallow , very safe, and very clean. The food is cheap as well!
Is a car essential?
A car is not essential , as Pula airport is only a short taxi ride away. However Istria has many lovely places to visit both on the coast and inland, so a car would be useful. The road system in Istria is excellent, with lots of money recently spent on upgrading the road network.
What is there to do nearby?
There is something for everybody. The local hotels all have water sports for hire. There is fishing, scuba diving, boat hire. There is golf nearby, you can hire sailing boats, horse riding, and also cycle hire. If you like walking, there are many coastal paths. Bird watching is also very good. If you like history, then Pula is steeped in this , with lots to see. The local beach is sandy, with others shingle or rock. There are also numerous nudist beaches if this takes your fancy. There is also a pool available to use for a small fee at the Hotel Arcus approximately 200m from the apartment.
