We wanted a European whistle-stop without hustle and a haven surrounded by history: we found it at The Hotel Adriatic in beautiful Rovinj, Croatia.
By day, we explored the nearby harbour and Marsala Tita Square, and as mentioned lunch was always just a bike ride away. This relaxed mode of transport made a refreshing change. We indulged in early nights and breakfasts brought to our door, leaving us refreshed and ready for not so busy schedules ahead.
The Hotel Adriatic was just a two hour drive from Venice, and well worth the trip. A world away and yet still close to home, it is the perfect setting for when downtime is the order of the day and I highly recommed visiting in the winter months. Avoid the tourists and make a small contribution to the local people experiencing quieter times.
