Where are we?
Both our properties are in Istria (the peninsula pointing into the top of the Adriatic, opposite Venice) and near the seaside town of Porec. Kovaci is within the larger village of Kaštelir (10 minutes drive north of Porec), and The Little House is in the tiny village of Matulini, 10 minutes drive to the east of Porec.
- Kovaci’s address is Kovaci 2, 52464 Kaštelir, Croatia.
- The Little House’s address is Matulini 1, 52445 Baderna, Croatia
Istria’s airport is in Pula and is about 50 minutes drive to Kaštelir (40 minutes to Matulini). For a cheaper option and as flights don’t come into Pula every day, you may prefer to fly into either Ljubljana airport in Slovenia (c. 2 hr 15 mins) or Trieste airport in Italy (c.1 hr 30 mins). Slightly further away is Venice airport (c. 3 hours) which is very convenient if you would like a two-centre holiday or just spend some time in this amazing city.
When you look into your flights, please bear in mind in high season there can be terrible delays at the Slovenian-Croatian border. There is also a toll on the Slovenian motorway and the police regularly check for vignettes.
If you are driving from Trieste airport, you only need to go a short distance in Slovenia and can avoid the motorway (and toll) if you choose.
