In the heart of rural Istria, yet only 16km from the coast, Holiday Homes Poli Svetega Antona is a complex of three renovated 18th-century stone houses around a courtyard and swimming pool. Within the complex is a tavern and restaurant serving up home-cooked local food on request. Check out more villas in Istria.
Can a hostel be chic? If the name is Swanky Mint the answer is most certainly yes. In the heart of Zagreb, this new hostel occupies a former 19th-century factory and cleverly uses elements of industrial design to create a comfortable, contemporary space. There are doubles and family rooms in addition to dorms. Small wonder it was voted Croatiaâ€™s Best Hostel in the 2016 Hoscars Awards based on HostelWorld’s customer ratings.
