With flights from the UK taking no more than three hours, Croatia is the perfect last minute holiday destination.
City-break, family holiday or late deal, Croatia can be moulded to fit any holiday type. And when it comes to accommodation, you’ll find exclusive boutique hotels on tiny islands, beachfront resorts and villas in the mountains. The island of Korcula has a rugged coastline, fishing villages and a Medieval capital, Korcula Town. Just a 10-minute drive away are the Grgic Apartments, set above the sheltered bay of Zrnovska Banja — perfect for couples and families.
The Verudela Peninsula, south of Pula on the Istrian coast, offers many beaches and coves with shallow waters which are great for snorkelling. The larger hotels will have watersports facilities or dive centres if you want to go diving. Head to the Venetian town of Rovinj, an hour south of Pula, where you can wander cobbled streets, browse the boutique shops and stop at a trattoria for lunch.
