Rovinj, in the south of Istria, is a charming little sea-side resort, perched on a peninsula. Istria was an island until the XVIIIth century, when the narrow channel separating it from the continent was filled in.
When you stay in Rovinj or its surrounding area, time seems to stand still, here you step into eternity. Each day is rich in simple pleasures : breathing in the scents of Mediterranean forests, contemplating the eternal harmony of stony ground and water.
The centre of Rovinj has a rich historical heritage, as well as fine beaches, both sandy and rocky, adapted to bathing and water sports. It has a beautiful marina, surrounded by pine-forests, while its hinterland offers magnificent Mediterranean forests.

- Water sports
