Croatia – Campervan Heaven!

 We’ve just returned from a Croatian road trip. Whether it’s the Roman History, the crystal clear waters of the Dalmatian coast, the Austro Hungarian architecture or the National Parks, Croatia has the campervan wow factor. Our favourites…The Amphitheatre in Pula, Dolphin spotting in Rovinj, Dining in Porec, Sight seeing Split and Trogir,Chilling on  the Isle of  Hvar and the walking through the amazing Plitvice national park. You have to see Dubrovnic too, but one day is enough…it’s crowded even in low season. Why is it so good for campervans?…

History is the answer. We’d failed to realise that since the late 1800’s Croatia was the summer playground for the wealthy people of central Europe. It was the go to place for Austrians, Hungarians, Germans, Italians etc. Look around at the architecture and you can imagine you are in any of these countries. After the war, this flow of tourists south continued with the growth of camping and caravanning. And so the seeds of a camping industry were sown and have continued to develop over the last 60 years. For us the Isle of Hvar was a 5 day chill out half way through our holiday, and whilst the main town is beautiful and sophisticated, we opted to base ourselves 10 minutes away in the untouched bay of Milna. It reminded is very much of our Greek island hopping in the late 70’s….peace, crystal clear water, spotless beaches, quality seafood, friendly people…and civilised tourists!…Scandinavians, Germans, Americans, Australians, South Africans, Canadians…..about 5 of each!…but you could sense the wow factor in everybody’s mood.

To top it all the camp site at Milna is right on the beach ( as in many other places),,and the views are fantastic from the various shaded terraces. If you don’t fancy cooking some evening then its just a 3 minute walk to around 5 restaurants. You can also catch a water taxi which takes you round a few bays to Hvar town.

Too much to wax lyrical about in one post but feel free to come along and interrogate us!
