2018-2019

Autumn at the Palazzo

Visitors looking for something different are coming to Istria all the time and discovering the joys of this very special region of Croatia. There are more direct flights to several airports making the journey easier from all over Europe and the rest of the world.

Here at Palazzo Portole we have availability during the Autumn White Truffle season and we continue to keep our prices as low as possible so we can persuade you too to experience the magic of this lovely Castle and the spectacular surrounding area.

We still have fantastic prices for short Autumn breaks or gourmet White Truffle adventures.

Contact us at the Palazzo and we can tailor your stay so that you can sample the pleasures of a holiday in a castle in Istria.

Spring and Summer 2019 

There is so much for all the family here. You’re close enough to the sea to visit the coast every day if you want to. There are sights and attractions which appeal to young and old alike.

At the Roman Arena in Pula the gladiators among you can imagine themselves in the thick of the games and later the music lovers in the group can take in a concert there under the stars.

Spend a day out on bicycles following the excellent cycle trails - along the route of an old railway line over the high bridges and through its tunnels, or in and out of forests, olive groves and vineyards on easily followed tracks. You’ll come across places to stop for a great meal and maybe a wine-tasting and you can be sure the children will be safe and far from busy roads and traffic.

At the end of the day you return to a unique holiday home - a secluded, private Castle where you can close the gates and leave the world outside.

In the Autumn have a relaxed evening with log fires burning and the delicious aromas of wild mushroom and truffle dishes filling the kitchen.

In the Summer dine al fresco in the Loggia while dinner sizzles on the barbecue next to you. 

The small historic town of Oprtalj is truly international and most people here, including the very young, speak more than one language and are extremely friendly. There is no traffic within the medieval walls so you can run around and explore in total safety.
