Travel Tips Guide

Family Yoga Retreat in Croatia Travel Tips :

Location

This Yoga, Food & Wine retreat will take place in the delightful hilltop village of Bale on the Istrian peninsula of Croatia. The charming medieval streets are lined with 14th and 15th century houses creating an urban landscape amongst the hilltops and crests in the town. Our private villa for the retreats is located within walking distance to the town so shopping, exploring, and dining out are convenient and at your doorstep.


Flights*

Flights into Pula Airport (PUY) are the most convenient way to arrive to our retreat. The airport is approximately a 30 minute drive to our villa in Bale.

PRO-TIPS :

Flights directly into Pula can be complicated and expensive so we recommend that you flight into another European city that is direct and affordable from your hometown like London or Frankfurt and then take another roundtrip direct flight to Pula from there.


Summer Retreat dates :

For example, Boston has direct flights to London on July 10, arriving on the 11th for $680usd roundtrip as below :


We suggest that you enjoy the day in London, try to stay awake until their nighttime, sleep a night or two in a hotel in London and then fly out to Pula either day of the retreat or the day before if you want to spend a night in Pula before the retreat starts.

Roundtrip flights from London to Pula on July 12 $140usd as below :


So for your summer flights to Pula through London costs are $820usd at time of writing. These are GREAT deals for European flights. Now is the time to book!

We use Google Flights to check fares but there are also deals directly with certain airlines like Condor, Eurowings, and many others.


Ferry from Venice

If you’re up for a 3.5 hour ferry ride between Italy and Croatia there are ferries that run on this schedule if your flight into Venice is a better deal.


*Please note that these are just the flight findings at the time of writing this section. We cannot guarantee rates and do not book flights for clients. The sooner you find and book flights the better deals you get. Please contact us if you have any questions or consider hiring a travel agent if the task of searching for flights is daunting to you.
