Istria and Poreč

Poreč is located on the peninsula of Istria, immediately south of Slovenia and Italy. Istria is widely considered the most beautiful region of Croatia, rich in history and surrounded by the deep blue waters of the Adriatic Sea. The region was colonised by the Romans in ancient times, who used this beautiful spot as their summer residence. The area has been subject to Venetian, French, Italian and Habsburg rule over the centuries, and was eventually incorporated into Yugoslavia in 1954 before Croatia became an independent republic in 1991. Istria was part of Italy in the early twentieth century, and the Italian influence is reflected to this day in Istrian cuisine, architecture, landscape and culture, and the use of Italian as a second language.

Istria has been an insider tip for many years. Its stunning coastline, rolling hills inland and beautiful old towns have attracted visitors from throughout Europe. It is the westernmost region of Croatia, and the largest peninsula in the Adriatic Sea. Boat trips along the beautiful coastline, stopping at different villages along the way, can be taken from directly outside the hotel. Also worth a visit is the town of Pula, home to the most impressive Roman amphitheatre anywhere in south-eastern Europe, a beautiful spot in its own right and the location of a range of music festivals throughout the summer months.

Below is a selection of holiday reviews from our single parent group holidays at the 4-star hotel Molindrio near Porec (Istria). This is one of our most popular beach holidays, especially for families with teenagers, due to the many activities available at and near the hotel.

"My 12 year old son said that it was the best holiday he had ever been on, and he's very hard to please, so for him to say that is really something special. We all had a blast. The kids had a ball playing with the other kids in the pool during the day, and in the hotel after dinner, and we all enjoyed going on the various activities and excursions. The parents had time to relax and chat and have a beer or read a book, while the kids were busy having fun with the other kids. We were all great friends by the end of the week. Lovely location, excellent hotel, and everything taken care of effortlessly by Sandra. There was nothing that I would change or could improve. Thanks for a brilliant holiday!"
- Nicky, Donagh (12) & Elsie (5) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2021
"Fantastic holiday with plenty of activities to keep us busy, plus ready made friends for the kids, would definitely recommend! Plus Sandra was an AWESOME host!"
- Paul, Oliver (10) & Noah (8) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2021
"Jamie and I had a fab week in Istria - would definitely recommend Istria as a great way to get a balance between rest and activities. Thank you SPoH x"
- Louise & Jamie (6) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2018
"We loved this holiday to Croatia. The girls made new friends and were happy playing and socialising throughout the week, which meant the adults could talk and relax. The mix of time for hotel pool and organised optional activities was just right, and catered for all. Sandra balanced her time as hostess, organiser, and socialite brilliantly (even taking one of us clubbing!) and looked after us all brilliantly. We all had a wonderful time and look forward to going on another single parents holiday soon. "
- Sarah, Ellie (12) & Abigail (7) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2018
"A really enjoyable holiday. The group were all amazing and friendly and we had such fun. My daughter bring an only child loved having all the other kids around. We had lots of laughter. "
- Alison & Alexandria (11) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2018
"It was our first summer holiday with SPOH and we had an amazing time! There was a broad range of well organised activities and Sandra and Jacob were exceptional at keeping the group informed with the arrangements. The website provided an accurate description of the holiday and we weren't disappointed. It was great to see the children of a wide age range had such fun together and we have very happy memories of a brilliant holiday :-) "
- Lea & Daniel (9) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2017
"My daughters and I had a really good time in Croatia, our host Sandra made all the efforts to make everyone comfortable and the holiday a great experience for everyone's taste, offering water sports, boat trips, cultural trips and many other attractions. The Laguna where the hotel is located is a very relaxing and beautiful place, and Istria offers plenty of things to see."
- Claudia, Marie (15) & Cristelle (13) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2017
"My daughter (12) and I have travelled a lot and she says that this was her best holiday ever! She met some lovely girls and boys which made the holiday - for both of us! Sandra very thoughtfully arranged everything. I enormously appreciated all the energy and thought Sandra and Jacob put into every day of our trip! A lot of work behind the scenes meant everything happened effortlessly and with a sense of fun, and it started from the minute we met at our holiday destination - our flight was delayed due to severe storms across Europe (followed by a full week of glorious sunshine!!). Jacob ensured that our transfers were on-point despite the very late arrival time and Sandra had done a fantastic job of organising savoury and sweet platters for all as soon as we got to the hotel - very thoughtful and enormously appreciated. We loved the chatter at breakfast and dinner - we met so many wonderful people. There was always a lot to do if one wanted to. We tried water skiing, the water park, para sailing, boat trips and pedalowing. Even the water taxi was fun! We also had lots of days relaxing by the pool, walking, and lingering in the sea. We felt genuine kindness, warmth and care from Sandra and Jacob, for every person on the trip, from the little ones right up to the parents with older children. "
- Hazel & Lauren (12)- single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2017
"Tom and I had a fabulous time in Croatia. We both made some new friends and I managed to get some 'me ' time in without worrying about Tom being entertained. Thanks to all at SPOH for being fantastic hosts and putting together such a brilliant holiday experience. "
- Andrea & Tom (12) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2017
"I went away with SPOH to Croatia with Lucas (9) and Lottie (5) for my first trip since the separation. Everything was made stress free from the very beginning, enquiries, booking and then arrival and during the stay. Sandra and Jacob at the resort were always on hand to answer questions, offer support and their organisation of trips and activities was second to none. The kids had the most amazing time and due to the set up immediately had friends to talk with and play and there were adults for me to talk to all the time.
I would certainly recommend a trip with SPOH to anyone. "

- Lee, Lucas (9) and Lottie (5) - single parent beach holiday to Croatia, August 2017
"I was quite nervous before going to Croatia but Sandra and Jacob were amazing hosts and it really was a stress free holiday and a lot of fun for us both. Beautiful location and a wonderful selection of activities on offer - but most important was the company and we came back having met some really lovely people. The only downside was how fast it all went!"
- Jess & Libbi (9) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2017
"Superbly organised holiday. Porec is beautiful – good hotel, shady beaches & the sea was so clear and warm. Sandra, our rep, was outstanding - friendly, helpful & nothing was too much trouble. She did a fantastic job suggesting & organizing activities to suit our group. We met some fantastic people. My 16 year old son made friends quickly so I hardly saw him for the duration of the holiday!
All in all another superb SPOH holiday, a perfect combination of activities & relaxation, I would definitely recommend. I can think of nothing negative except the week flew by and we had to come home!"

- Marina & Zak (16) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2016
"We had a fantastic week in Croatia - the kids made lots of new friends and I had a chance to properly relax! Our host Sandra was friendly and helpful and the week had just the right amount of activities, without feeling too hectic."
- Alicky, Ezra (9) & Jude (7) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2016
"Our best ever holiday, really didn't want to come home this time. Lots to do during the day but didn't feel we had to do all things with younger kids. Bars & clubs in the evening were awesome & we made some really great friends!"
- Joe & Jonny (both 17) - single parent beach holiday in Croatia, August 2016
