Year-round camping in Arena Hospitality Group’s campsites in the south of Istria
Campsites Arena Stoja in Pula and Arena Grand Kažela in Medulin
With the aim of developing year-round tourism and adapting to new market conditions, Arena Hospitality Group has decided to open two of its campsites, one in Pula – Arena Stoja, and the other in Medulin – the recently renovated Arena Grand Kažela, throughout the year. Plenty of sunny days and a mild Mediterranean climate allow the South of Istria to become a year-round camping destination. Besides, Istria offers guests a whole range of various activities throughout the year – sports and recreational activities in untouched nature, exploring the rich cultural and historical heritage or enjoying the traditional Istria cuisine.
At the beginning of the challenging 2020, coming out of the unprecedented lockdowns across Europe, we witnessed the demand for camping accommodation as the most sought-after form of accommodation. We believe that this trend will continue in the coming period. Guests, especially those coming from urban areas, are increasingly expressing the need to escape to nature where they can have a quality rest free of the everyday stress and enjoy the fresh air in an intimate environment.
To provide guests with comfortable holidays in our campsites during the autumn and winter, we have adjusted our offer. In addition to providing regular services such as electricity connection on lots in Arena Stoja Campsite and electricity and water connection and drainage in Arena Grand Kažela Campsite, guests will also have at their disposal heated sanitary facilities, reception office as well as a coffee bar and a restaurant within each campsite.
Mild and favourable weather conditions are ideal for sightseeing, walking, cycling, running, windsurfing and other outdoor recreational activities. Various activities organized in cooperation with partners, as well as animation activities within the campsites, will be offered to guests staying at our campsites during autumn and winter. Additionally, transfer to and from the new swimming pools in Pula and the nearby shopping centres will be available to all guests seeking such activities.
Arena Hospitality Group aims to develop year-round tourism in the south of the largest Croatian peninsula in cooperation with the tourist boards of Pula, Medulin and Istria in the long-term. The most authentic that Istria can offer is best experienced in autumn and winter. During October, guests will be able to join the harvest of the precious Istrian fruit – olives and taste some of the best virgin olive oils in the world in the nearby town of Vodnjan. In November, during St. Martin’s Day, at one of the many local celebrations, guests will be able to enjoy another Istrian top product – wine, and with a farewell to summer and a welcome to winter, participate in the baptism of the young wine. December is reserved for many cultural events in Pula, at the traditional Pula Advent.
Regardless of the day and month, Istria offers numerous historical and natural attractions that can inspire all curious travellers. The two-thousand-year-old Roman amphitheatre in Pula, the green and blue archipelago of the Brijuni National Park, the tranquillity of the landscape of Cape Kamenjak and its many hiking and biking trails along with the picturesque historic hilltop villages are just some of the places worth visiting without the usual summer crowds.
We invite our loyal guests and all those who are about to become one to discover all the beauty of camping in the south of Istria in autumn and winter. Fall in love with Istria and the Istrian way of life that might have been left unknown on a classic summer holiday.
