Additional Location Information

Besida is situated at the end of the village and surrounded by olive trees and lavender fields. The Pula airport is only 20min driving from the vilage. The village is lightly populated (around 100 inhabitants), regardless, there is a bar and a local shop. You can reach semi private beaches with magnificently clear water by car through the woods in less than 10 minutes drive.
Wine-cellar selling exquisite and award-winning wine and olive oil is 5 minutes drive away.
"PULA in Croatia is best known for its unspoilt scenery, wine-making and fishing. That’s if you’ve heard of it at all.

(...)

Pula’s ancient treasures include an impressive Roman amphitheatre that now plays host to the city’s film festival every July.

Our very own relic Sir Tom Jones played there last summer too.

The city’s gates, walls and temples are a monumental treat and you can cover them all easily on foot.

Then head for the picturesque main street, Sergijevaca, where you’ll find souvenir shops, pretty bars and restaurants overflowing with locals.

(...)

No time for hangovers, though. Next stop was the Brijuni Islands, a short ferry ride away. Once a part of Italy, the islands were ceded to Yugoslavia after World War Two.

The stunning port is carpeted with ancient pines and a 1,700-year-old olive tree. The best way to nip around the island is on a golf buggy.

Almost 100 heads of state visited there and Yugoslavia’s leader Marshal Tito made it his summer home, along with stars including Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton.

There’s a cute tourist train that lulls past 13th Century St Mary’s Church but the main attraction on the island is a safari park full of animals descended from those given as gifts to Tito.

After fun in the sun, naturally we had to finish off with a selection of the finest seafood and wine, washed down with lethal local honey brandy.

The harbourside restaurant Korta finished us off with dish after dish of delicious fish.

The final meal of the holiday was at local restaurant Konoba Batelina. The owner, a fisherman, has his family serving up a variety of — yes, you guessed it — fish.

Watching the sun go down on the terrace while eating a variety of delicacies, from juicy scallops to raw sushi and brudet (fish ghoulash), then a variety of desserts like homemade cheesecake and our favourite mint chocolate mousse, ensured a food coma and the first decent night’s sleep of the trip.

If you want to impress, then take your loved one to this magical city."
(The Sun: Loud and lovely Croatias Pula is pretty special)

We tend to be as much Earth friendly as possible.
That is one of the reasons why we have decided to invest our future funds in renewable sources of energy instead of investing in a pool. We believe that one can enjoy nature without the pool and that swimming in the amazingly clear sea on the nearby secluded beaches is a more valuable experience.
