Village and resort with views across the bay of Piran towards Slovenia; golf course and short drive to busy town of Umag
Savudrija is the area at the North west corner of Istria facing the Bay of Piran and about 7km from Umag
. A new Kempinski Hotel and the adjoining Skiper Resort have been developed on the coast with views out across the bay to Piran in Slovenia. The par 72 eighteen hole golf course at Savudrija, designed by the Austrian architect Diethard Fahrenleitner, is one of the few golf courses in Croatia. Nearby Umag
is a popular tourist centre focused around a charming medieval old town that shows the architectural influence of the Venetians who controlled Umag
in the middle ages. Today Umag
is also an important sports centre, particularly for tennis, hosting the Croatian ATP tennis championships every July.
