Win a holiday for two to Croatia

January 2017 Prize Draw

Porec, CroatiaWin a truly inspiring 8 day trip to Croatia’s Istrian Riviera for two, combining a lively culture, riveting history and beautiful scenery.

For our first free prize draw in 2017, we are delighted to be giving the winner and their partner a marvellous 8 day trip to Croatia, courtesy of our partner, Cosmos Tours and Cruises.

Croatia’s Istrian Riviera is a magnificent combination of dramatic scenery, a UNESCO listed region and gorgeous old towns and villages, replete with character and history. Plitvice, CroatiaThere are visits to the stunning lakes of Plitvice, surrounded by deep forests, where waterfalls tumble from rocky outcrops creating dramatic scenes. The Lipica Stud Farm is on the list of excursions too, where the majestic Lipizzaner horses are bred for the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. You’ll also enjoy trips to Pula, full of Roman archaeological ruins, Rovinj, with its Venetian architecture and pretty cobbled streets, where cafes and little shops are tucked away just waiting to be explored and Opatija on the coast, which boasts a long promenade and a stylish lifestyle. Add to these most interesting places, your base for the holiday, Porec, which has a lovely harbour, fascinating old quarter and wonderful basilica.  

Rovinj, CroatiaThere is a real wealth of exquisite natural beauty in Croatia as well as a long history, spanning the millennia, which provides fascinating insights into European culture. The coast here was the favourite playground of many film stars and royal families up until the Second World War – it is easy to see why!

Our lucky winner and partner will travel in May, June or September 2017, with flights, transfers, excursions, accommodation and half board included.  

This prize draw closes on 31 January 2017.

    We stayed in Porec several years ago and it was lovely. It has a Venetian feel to it from all the lovely old buildings. Glorious summer weather too.

    As we have a Harley Davidson and were unable to attend the European rally that was held in Croatia due to other commitments we have always been interested in hopefully being able to visit at some time.

    Just been looking after live-in 80 yr old parents, after fathers open heart surgery & mother has advanced Altzeimers. So my husband & I could do with the break & time alone together.

    We've been to Dubrovnik and had a really good time. We would really like to explore other parts of Croatia and this prize would be perfect!

    Bok! Hello in Croatian. See, I'm already learning the language! This would be a great holiday for me and my daughter. We could have a good catch up sitting on the harbour front in Porec, seeing the Lipizzaner horses (we used to go horse riding together when she was younger though falling off played a big part in it) and, of course, seeing the Roman ruins at Pula. Neither of us have ever never been to Croatia so this is very exciting! Thanks for the opportunity.

    I've read and been told that Istria can be like a whole world, unto itself, within Croatia. The fact that this trip takes in a bit of Slovenia as well is a bonus!

    Croatia is high on my list for places to go this year. We like going to a small country we can tour by car that has a wide variety of things to do - natural beauty, walking, beaches and cultural sites and Croatia seems to have it all. I am a huge fan of Game of Thrones, so want to see the settings for the show in Dubrovnik and also Plitvice Lakes as well as the other stunning national parks. Lovely prize.

    Great prize. We last went to Croatia in the 1980's when it was still Yugoslavia. It would be great to see how much it's changed.

    The sea kayaking around the varied and extremely picturesque coastline is supposed to be amazing!
