My husband and I are travelling with our three teen/adult kids next month. I have a reservation at a B&B in the countryside out side of Porec that has a pool, but not much else around it, which is fine. We knew we would be doing day excursions. As I was finalizing some plans yesterday, I randomly looked at Rovinj accommodations, which have been booked for months, and usually twice as much as where we we are now staying. It is in the heart of town. I booked it, since it was clear someone must have just cancelled - and it's effectively the same cost.
Now I am stuck. Which would be a better base? I want to cancel one of these soon to give it to someone else. On one hand, Rovinj is on the water, we can walk around town, go biking, and there would be access to several different restaurants. All this might be harder to do with just a day trip. But will it be relaxing since it is so touristy? We are leaving in 3 weeks, so not quite the worst of the season yet. Our B&B may be more relaxing with a pool, but otherwise there isn't much to do there.
This is the very beginning of our vacation. I originally looked because I didn't want to do too much driving the first day after we got there, so though Rovijn might be nice just to walk and hang around the first day. I am so stuck! I guess I want to make sure it's relaxing and not like a little Venice with crowds and crowds of people all the time. I guess that changes at night?
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
