Spring and autumn are possibly the best seasons
In spring and autumn the temperatures are just right. It calls for a more active holiday, allowing you to explore this beautiful region to the fullest. This is also a season when Istria offers its most valuable treasures, such as white truffles, wild asparagus, and much more. At the same time you also avoid the big crowds and get this beautiful country all for yourself.
Just enjoy and relax.
In spring, nature is still fresh. Beautiful flowers are everywhere and attract many hikers. The cyclists and motorcyclists find a challenge in the hills and love the rests on the many idyllic terraces. Now is also the time for the wild asparagus, a true culinary delight.
In autumn nature is even more beautiful. The colours of the local vegetation are extremely intense and go from deep red to bright yellow. Temperatures are just perfect. The mushrooms and truffles make it a culinary feast. Now is the time for the white truffle, a priceless delicacy, which offers you a unique culinary sensation. In addition, the sea is still warm, while the beaches are for you alone.
In Istria during these seasons, Casa Acqua Dolce is one of the best places to stay. The house offers central heating for an occasional chilly day, with floor heating throughout the house. A fully equipped private spa will make your stay unforgettable. The taverns in the square in front of the house, or the many restaurants in the area, prepare great meals with pure local seasonal products for a very reasonable price. In spring and autumn, you may also find very good bargains, especially for travel and car hire.
