You vacation mostly depends on the people you spend it with. Good company is half the pleasure; the other half is good accommodation. You are responsible for the former, while we, the Percan family, can guarantee you the latter.
Our vacation homes are located in Krnica, a small village on the eastern coast of Istria, 22 km from Pula. It is located on the elevation above the sea and surrounded by beautiful forests, pastures and vineyards. Krnica is the only village in Istria with its own port. A 2.5-km-long road running through the pine forest will take you to the Krnica Port where you will see a fishing village with wooden boats, nets and stone houses. The beaches are rocky and there are small coves scattered along the entire Krnica channel offering the pleasure of untouched nature and the crystal clear sea.
Krnica is an ideal place for vacation. In spring you can pick wild asparagus, aromatic and healing herbs here, whereas in the fall you can pick mushrooms, grapes, olives, enjoy the landscape or simply take a walk. Watching the sunrise at the Krnica Port, you can welcome the fishing boats surrounded by flocks of seagulls and buy the freshly caught fish.
We offer accommodation in various facilities, depending on your wishes and needs. All facilities are modernly equipped, however the exterior has preserved the architectonic harmony fostered by old Istrian architects. The vast yards include outdoor stone grills if you’d like to test your culinary abilities, and there are tables in the shade of the vine, kiwi or fig trees where you can spend pleasant evenings alone or in the company of family or friends.
In the immediate vicinity of our facilities there is a fenced site of 5,000 sq m in area with an olive orchard and a parking lot, and an area with stone benches and an outdoor grill, an ideal place for you to relax and let your children run loose.
Let Krnica be your South, the Mediterranean you have always dreamed about!

For all of you who would like to dive into the endless azure of the peaceful and quiet sea, you can do so in cooperation with the Krnica Dive diving club from the Krnica Port.
If you love to ride a bike then you know that that is an ideal way to spend a vacation. By choosing Krnica, you have chosen an ideal destination. You can use the Istrian Bike Atlas, and for more information regarding bike routes please visit:
If you wish to play a game of golf, you can do so at one of Istria’s heavenly corners, the Brijuni Islands. The golf course on the Veliki Brijun Island is a 9-hole course with numerous interesting hazards provided by the surrounding natural landscape.
There are over 430 clay tennis courts in Istria that can be used throughout the year. The well-known ATP TOUR CROATIA OPEN is held in the Istrian town of Umag. If you wish to play tennis while staying in our apartments, you can do so on the courts in Duga uvala, situated only 8 km away.
If, while staying in our apartments, you wish to fly a kite or climb a cliff and be swept away by the beauties of this beautiful and magical country, here are some useful information:
There are five kite-fying start areas in Istria: Kaštelir near Novigrad, excellent for beginners, then Raspadalica, Brgud on Učka, Lanišće, Zbevnica and the top of the Učka Mountain, very suitable for kite-flying. All the start areas are oriented so as to allow you to take to the heights from one of them within the radius of 30 km, regardless of the wind.
Some climbing areas suitable for sports climbing: Zlatni Rt near Rovinj, the Lim Channel, Dvigrad, Istarske toplice, Buzetski Kanjon, Vranjska draga near the Učka Tunnel, Zarečki krov and Lido near Pazin, Moščenička draga, Vintijan near Pula. In designated climbing areas on the so-called short cliffs, 20-30 m high, there are 270 equipped climbing routes. Both the top athletes and the beginners can get pretty exhausted while trying to overcome the various hazards awaiting them on Istrian cliffs.
The winds and sea currents will offer a unique experience to the lovers of surfing. The southern part of Istria, with strong sea currents and more “challenging” winds, is suitable for more adept surfers. Bring your surfboard with you and relax.
