The Northern Adriatic Sea is one of the prime destinations in global tourism, Croatia is the highlight and Istria is the best part of it. At least, this is how we see it at Golf & Land Design. During the last 10 to 15 years we had the opportunity to develop several outstanding golf resort in Istria, and some of these gems we want to share with you.
Imagine a totally peaceful, nicely rolling and partially wooded land, vineyards, olive trees, wild asparagus in spring, truffles in fall, 10 minutes to the beach, ocean view all year and a couple of minutes to the highway. This is where it is, right in the middle between Umag and Pula on a place, which could not be any better suited for a golf resort.
What we developed in this location is 3 x 9 holes of upmarket golf resort with app. 15 ha of housing, a boutique hotel with spa and wellness facilities as well as serviced apartments. The resort will have its own little outlet on the beach and run a beach club there, preferably for the resort members, but also open to the public.
Right next door to the resort, you will find fantastic wine estates, you get some of the best olive oil in this area, Istrian truffles are known throughout the world, food is of unique quality and a mix of Mediterranean, Italian, Austrian and Slavic influences. There are other highlights, such as Venice just across the Adriatic 90 minutes to go by speed boat, Munich and Vienna are an easy 5 hrs by car, open air and opera events in the Roman arenas in Verona are 3 hrs to drive and the counterparts in Pula you can easily reach in 30 minutes. Swimming and sailing in the ocean, hunting, biking and fishing in the central parts of the peninsula and mainly – just living the Mediterranean way are the reasons to turn to Istria.
You now have the chance to invest in a complete, high standard resort with 27 hole golf resort, a superior golf academy with a additional sports facilities, a boutique hotel next to the golf club, a small shopping and business area next to the hotel and with a large real estate development holding golf and resort villas, townhouses and condos, apartments and corporate lodges, giving the development an outstanding potential and a great return on your investment. We are looking for investment partners, be it for the total investment or for part investment, be it an active partners or an investor.
