Win a holiday for two to Croatia

January 2017 Prize Draw

Date published: 30 Dec 16

Porec, CroatiaThis prize draw is now closed.

Win 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 were married in 1987 and had our honeymoon on the island of Kolocep not far from Dubrovnik, we had to get a boat back and forth to go shopping etc but when our boat arrived in Dubrovnik all shops had closed for afternoon, however we found that if we got the "workers" boat at 05am then we could catch the shops,so we did this but only once. This year is our 30th wedding anniversary and it would be wonderful to return. Still have a bottle of "posip" wine from 1987.

    I had no idea Croatia had so much to do and see, looks fantastic but the Lipica Stud Farm would certainly be the venue I'd be most excited about.

    Plitvice Lakes is the most peaceful, relaxing and beautiful place I've ever been! I visited this area when it was still Yugoslavia and haven't been back since, so would love to return to this magical place.
