We stayed for 3 nights at Villa Dobravac in the top floor apartment. Lovely clean apartments and a 5 minute walk from the old town phone # 27845391. The view from our room was incredible, breakfast very good, and a very helpful staff.
Rovinj is a lovely romantic town with many great restaurants.
We rented a car and took a wonderful day trip to Montovun, a charming town built on the top of a mountain. They are famous for their Truffles and we had one of our best meals in Croatia here. We had the Pasta with White Truffles... awesome.
These were the towns we enjoyed the most. We also went to the Brijulni Islands ( waste of time ) and Pula to see the Roman ruins.
Highly recommend going to Rovinj and taking day trips from there throughout Istria!! We used Jayway Travel and would highly recommend as they specialize in Eastern Europe and you are given a cell phone to call them at any time.
