Going for a holiday to the Istrian peninsula in Croatia could be just what you need. While most people head for the beautiful beaches of Istria, you can have a different kind of a holiday by staying in the village of Gedići, which is located in Tar-Vabriga municipality. Gedići holiday rentals are perfect for people looking for a quiet holiday, away from the noise of beaches that dot the Istrian coastline. This inland village offers wonderful opportunities to explore the landscape. You can take a cycle and enjoy your time admiring the natural beauty of the place, or you can opt for speleology, where you can go and explore the many caves in the region.
World class hospitality on holidays in Gedici
Alternatively, you can take a walk on the several trails that the region has and commune with nature without any disturbance. You can mingle with the locals at the wine taverns, where you can taste some fabulous Istrian wines and food. Of course, the locals are extremely hospitable, so you will enjoy chatting with them. However, if you are looking for more, Gedići villas will allow you easy access to the town of Porec, which has many attractions. Porec is just a couple of miles from Gedići, so you can plan for a day’s trip. Here you can visit the historic centre of the town, museums, palaces and art galleries. The town also has streets that are well-preserved from the Roman era. Do make sure that you visit the Roman square in Porec which has 2 temples attached to it. One of the temples was constructed in the 1st century AD and was built in the honour of Neptune, who was a Roman god. Then there is the 6th century Euphrasian Basilica, which was built during the Byzantine Empire and was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
Stunning architecture surrounds the Gedici holiday homes
Gedići apartments will also allow you to visit a gothic Franciscan church, Dieta Istriana. This church was constructed in the 13th century, but in the 18th century, it was renovated in the Baroque style of architecture. Porec has quite a few homes from the Roman era and also some palaces depicting Venetian gothic style of architecture. When you stay in Gedići accommodation, you can still visit the beaches. For instance, Uvala Sveta Marina is just 5.2 kilometres away, and this is a tiny bay where you can enjoy swimming and sunbathing. From the Gedići villa rentals, you can also visit the village of Višnjan. This beautiful Croatian village is home to the Višnjan Observatory. The observatory runs programmes in marine biology, archaeology and astronomy during the summer months for youth. So, if you happen to visit Gedići during summer and are interested in these programmes, you can enroll for them.
