Chic holiday rentals in Foskici for that perfect Istrian getaway
You can access your Foskici holiday rentals by using the Pula airport during the summer months, but beware, in winter it is often easier to fly to Trieste, just over the border in Italy about an hour away by road. Throughout history, Croatia has been a much disputed land. As the gateway from Europe into the East, it was strategically very important. The Romans considered the Croatians to be a tough nut to crack, because of the way they could use their rugged terrain. Once part of Yugoslavia, Croatia has since reorganized itself as a new country. Tourism is an important part of its industry, and the country is emerging as an incredible holiday destination, due to its warm hospitality, its great climate and its fabulous Foskici holiday homes.
Enjoy a slower pace of life on holiday in Foskici
If you are looking for a remote location away from the city bustle, this is it. The cities are small, but there are many small farms and villages. The area has limestone karst topography, and has many options for walking or cycling tours. In the town of Pula, near the seacoast, there are caves. The shores are rocky, with promontories sticking out into the sea. In addition to walking and cycling, there are guided fishing tours in the Adriatic and fly fishing in the streams. Fishermen will enjoy the unspoiled rivers. Many of these things can be reached easily from your Foskici villas and apartments by driving down the fast highway that goes down the middle of the peninsula in Istria country, Croatia.
Sample life in the countryside from your Foskici apartments
Some of the farms have begun to offer tourist shops or crafts for visitors. This agritourism could add a unique twist to your Foskici vacation. While you are there, be sure to sample some of the local foods. They include minestra (a dish made with great northern white beans and escarole), sausages with cabbage, tasty venison and supa. Terra and malmsey drinks are made here. Olives and olive oil are important products of the area. Several festivals are held throughout the year. The festival of St. Bartholomew is a major one, and is conveniently scheduled in August, making it very easy for tourists to attend.
