Istria is a perfect mix of continental Croatia and the Adriatic Sea. The peninsula has a beautiful seaside with rocky beaches and clean sea. There are many secluded beaches and places to go if you want a more romantic, private atmosphere. The valleys and rolling hills fill the interior of Istria. This is where all the top-rated olive oils, prime white truffles and award-winning wines come from. Istria was a part of the Roman empire, which guarantees a rich historic background accompanied with beautiful architecture and monuments. It's the perfect location for our tennis holiday.
Porec is a city on the western coast of Istria. After Pula, it’s the biggest Istrian city. The city was inhabited even in ancient times; the walls around the city were built during the Roman period. The town is almost 2,000 years old, and is set around a harbour protected from the sea by the small island of Sveti Nikola/San Nicola (Saint Nicholas).
