Villas for rent on the Kvarner islands
Croatian villas with swimming pool for rent on the Kvarner islands Krk, Rab, Cres, Lošinj and Mali Lošinj
Croatia is simply beautiful and especially popular with holidaymakers are the Kvarner islands. The Kvarner Bay is located on the upper Adriatic in Croatia, between the peninsula of Istria in the west and the Croatian coastal country in the east.
The most important place on the Kvarner bay is certainly the port city of Rijeka. You can spend your holidays on one of the inhabited Kvarner islands Krk, Pag, Cres, Lošinj, Rab, Susak, Unije, Ilovik, Male Srakane and Vele Srakane. Here you will find many important and very traditional tourist resorts, such as the sophisticated Opatija and Lovran.
The climate of the region is mild and the diverse vegetation is clearly Mediterranean. So you will find beautiful forests with oleander, chestnuts growing next to tangerines, kiwis and lemons. The four beautiful islands of Krk, Cres, Losinj and Rab are located just off the mainland coast of the Kvarner Gulf. Forests with huge pines as far as the eye can see, ancient fortresses steeped in history and small picturesque fishing villages merge into a veritable painting, which presents itself to the eye.
Krk is the largest Adriatic island and also the most visited among the Kvarner islands, because you can reach them easily and uncomplicated over a bridge, which is located at the northernmost tip of the island and this connects with the mainland south of Kraljevica. The most traveled part of the island is the south side, with the cities of Krk and Baska being the most popular tourist destinations.
Cres, Losinj and Rab are a little less crowded, but have their own flair and you also have the opportunity to find a small secluded beach all to yourself.
In recent times, an effort was made to connect Cres and Losinj with a bridge. Interestingly, by the way, these two islands were originally one – but a very long time ago. Because the separation took place through the construction of a canal by the Illysians in 1600 BC. This should allow better shipping traffic.
There are very few places on the islands and, with the exception of the cities of Cres, Mali Losinj and Veli Losinj, there are usually less than 100 inhabitants in them. Cres and Veli Losinj are very pretty little dreamy harbors and Mali Losinj, located in a natural bay, is big enough for boats to dock.
The Kvarner island of Rab is very different from the other Croatian islands. Because if you look from the mainland to Rab, the eastern side of the island seems to be completely bare of vegetation. This results in an almost colorless picture because there are absolutely no shrubs, trees or grass. However, the island is particularly fascinating, especially at sunset, when the bare rocks are bathed in wonderful colors.
The other side of the island is all the more fertile and grows there wine, olives, almonds and lemons. The capital of the island is Rab, an idyllic medieval town with lots of distinctive church towers.
