When to go: June to September to enjoy the see, spring and autumn for hiking and sightseeing.
What`s special: Gorgeous view over the see from your balcony because the hotel is set right next to the see. You will enjoy a combination of tasty food with an amazing view at the restaurant summer terrace. If you travel with your dear, special Romantic rooms will be perfect for both.
Where to enjoy food: You can book room with breakfast or half board, in summer you can enjoy it at a romantic summer terrace. You can find a lot of great restaurants on the seacoast.
Where is it: Small town Lovran is in Istria, in North Croatia. Airports Rijeka, Pula and Zagreb are near.
Why go there: Swimming in the see is a must! The 12 km long promenade starts next to the Hotel Bristol and goes through Opatija, so you can enjoy a walk – this is a pleasant obligation number two. With a combination of fizzle of the sea, breeze, sun or stars and the best ice cream (sladoled) in the world it looks like a perfect holiday!
Hotel Bristol is located at the foot of the Učka Nature Park, so you can enjoy a bicycle ride on a special road. If you want to spend your time on a longer trip, try the famous Plitvice Lakes National Park. It`s a place, where the Winnetou movie was filmed. Or you can start on a journey to the island Cres by ferry. Will you see some vultures?
How much is enough: Room rate in summer season is around 120 €/night/standard room for 2 persons, price includes half board and a balcony with a sea view, of course. If you want to relax in popular Croatia at early July or late August, you can save 20 percent, in September even 30. Prices in spring and autumn are really low. You can choose various categories of rooms, higher ones with only a little extra cost.
When I want something different: If you want a slice of luxury, order a room in Remisens Premium Villa Ambasador in close Opatija. You could savour a whirlpool on a terrace looking over the sea. If you are out of cash and trying to save every penny, choose room with balcony and sea view in Maja Apartment, which is really close to the sea. More luxury version of apartment can be found in Villa Peppina Apartment.
