The limits with visiting an country like Croatia is that there’s always another island, bay or peninsula on the horizon, beckoning you to explore it. Time on holiday may be limited, weekend breaks or longer stays in a holiday rental, however if you spend your whole holiday hopping from one island to the next, you may miss out on discovering what’s right under your nose. The islands Krk, Pag, Rab, Losinj and Molat surround Cres. Cres is also comparably close to the shore of Istria. The island of Cres is a perfect antidote: large, but contained, it offers every possible diversion that people flock to Croatia for – beaches, outdoor recreation, water sports, historical beauty, nightlife, fine dining, etc. all with self catering private villas Cres and holiday houses Cres – and it’s all on one, relatively large island.
Those who love to travel to new places and explore every last inch of them, a holiday in a Cres villa offers plenty of terrain to call one’s personal playground. Those who like a holiday for relaxation, will be pleased with the white powdery sand to lie on for a full day of sunbathing. This is because the island juts out and much of the coast looks back inward toward the mainland eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea, but the view is broken up with purple, blue and green islands that rapidly change colours over the shimmering emerald-violet-red-orange sea during sunset watched from the balcony of your Croation villa Cres. Cycling through and renting a cottage in the Cres countryside is highly recommended. There are various places to rent bikes, and once you set off you’ll be met with incredible views from various points throughout the island’s circumference. You’ll also do well to stop off and talk to the locals, who tend sheep in pastures demarcated by crumbling stone fences dating back to the Roman Empire.
Many will be willing to sell you olives, baked goods, fresh goat cheese or local wine, all hand made to enjoy at your self catering holiday villa Cres. Holiday accommodation Cres is a good for relaxing holidays, and a good starting point for exciting trips. One of the most famous attractions for holiday visitors to Cres is the colony of Griffon Vultures, birds of prey coloured with a bulky body and an extraordinary collage of white and pastel tans and browns. Also check out the Valun ruins. The town of Cres itself is incredibly relaxed, although it does sport a fun nightlife and a good selection of fine restaurants when you wish to eat away from your holiday cottage. Visitors who rent apartments on Cres, come here to avoid the crowds and experience the slower pace of island life in Ciovo Croatia.
