Floating houses new accommodation offer in Pula

Posted on by

first_img“Croatia has one of the most beautiful coasts in the world and our idea was to allow guests who arrive on that coast to stay, not only in the first row to the sea, as they could before, but also in the first row at sea. Floating houses have long been a common way to have a pleasant stay on the water all over the world, so we do not discover any ‘hot water’, but only open the possibility to enjoy your stay on the Adriatic in the same way.”, Sebastian Selan, director and one of the founders of the company 3maran, told Glas Istre. Floating houses are a project of the Slovenian company 3maran, whose “sea” apartments are already part of the offer in the marina Punat on Krk, Slovenian Portorož and Italian Rimini. From now on, cottages are also available in Marina Veruda, where the first four, out of a total of ten planned, floating apartments, have been set up in recent days.

Namely, these are apartments that allow their visitors to rest on the sea surface, and with the complete comfort they would have in facilities on the coast, reports Glas Istre. In any case, this is an interesting tourist product with which Marina Veruda expands its offer, and floating houses will surely attract the interest of many visitors to Pula and the Veruda Channel.

Before entering the entrepreneurial waters, I was the director of the marina in Portorož for seven years, and it was in that marina that we completed our first project, ie in 2016 we set up the first floating houses. Today, there are a total of 41 such houses and their occupancy is 95 percent in the summer months, or about 65 percent throughout the year because the climate allows it. After that, we realized the project in Italy, ie the marina Portoverde in Rimini, and our first floating houses in Croatia were set up two years ago in the marina Punat on the island of Krk”, Explained Selan.last_img read more

Rodgers targets silverware

Posted on by

first_imgLiverpool may have been surprise title contenders last season but as the new campaign kicks off manager Brendan Rodgers is targeting a trophy and a top-four finish. The Reds were pipped by Manchester City in the final week of the campaign despite an extraordinary run, which saw them record their highest league finish since 2009. Disappointment at missing out on a first championship for 24 years was only slightly tempered by a return to the Champions League but Rodgers knows if they are to maintain their progress they have to at least secure a long-term place among Europe’s elite. New Liverpool midfielder Adam Lallana will miss the visit of former club Southampton on Sunday as he continues his recovery from a knee injury. Fellow summer signing Lazar Markovic (ankle) will also not be fit but both players are expected to return to full training next week. Striker Rickie Lambert and centre-back Dejan Lovren, who also both moved from the Saints this summer, are available but defenders Jon Flanagan (knee) and Daniel Agger (calf) are sidelined by injuries. Southampton could hand out a number of debuts. Only new defensive acquisition Florin Gardos (hamstring) is a certain absentee. Ronald Koeman believes his first game in charge of Southampton will come against a Liverpool side stronger than last season, despite the departure of Luis Suarez. The Uruguay forward, named player of the year for his efforts as the Reds fell just short in the Premier League title race, left for Barcelona following a biting scandal at the World Cup. However, Liverpool boss Rodgers has invested heavily in his squad over the summer, bringing in almost £50million worth of talent from Southampton alone with the signings of Lallana, Lambert and Lovren. Further additions have been made in the shape of Markovic, Javier Manquillo and Alberto Moreno, with Koeman expecting a tough assignment from his maiden game in charge of Saints as he looks to replicate the 1-0 victory the south-coast club achieved at Anfield last year. “Luis Suarez is a great player who scored a lot for them,” he said. “But if you look through the squad of Liverpool they have so many good football players. Liverpool for this season is much stronger than last season. “It’s a great start for us to play away against Liverpool, we know it’s a tough one but everybody starts on nil. “The players know how to win at Anfield, I know as a manager what is winning at Anfield and we are ready to play.” As a result he has tried to lessen the expectations of another title challenge – at least until their primary aim is achieved. Asked whether his side were contenders the Northern Irishman said: “Not according to the bookies we’re not. “I’ve seen some odds and I don’t think we are even in the top four. “I think people will look at Manchester City and Chelsea, with their squads. “We probably arrived a year early to where we were but we will look to be up there challenging again this season. “What happened last year counts for nothing, that’s all gone now. The one thing that will carry on from that is the belief. “Our aim is to be competitive. Like the top teams, we want to win a trophy. That would be an aim. In the league, it’s about sustaining Champions League football. “For that you want to arrive in fourth. Once you have consolidated that, you can look beyond that. That’s certainly our aim this season.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Redknapp relishes vital victory

Posted on by

first_img Esteban Cambiasso’s measured finish gave the visitors the lead early on but QPR fought back and were ahead at the break courtesy of a Wes Morgan own goal and a first goal for the club from Leroy Fer. Leicester levelled through Jeffrey Schlupp before a fifth goal in as many games from Charlie Austin gave Redknapp’s side what could prove to be a vital win. “It was an excellent performance,” said Redknapp. “There was a lot of pressure on the game today, when you are stuck at the bottom you know that if you don’t win, even a draw, you come away and you are still cut adrift. “To get three points has put us right back in there again. There about eight teams still down there in a relegation battle – you haven’t got to be that clever to pick them out, that is how it is going to be all year but I feel we can get out of it.” Redknapp also praised the character of his squad to remain in the match despite falling behind early on and felt the win was a culmination of good work in recent games. “We came back,” he said. “We could have felt sorry for ourselves in that opening five minutes but we didn’t, we came back strong and we made lots of chances. In an open contest, which saw a record 51 chances on goal, QPR showed just enough to seal a 3-2 win in the first of a series of fixtures Redknapp has labelled as a “very important period” in his side’s bid to survive this season. The Foxes replace Rangers at the foot of the Barclays Premier League table after the result, which saw Nigel Pearson’s side take the lead with their first goal in 504 minutes of football. QPR boss Harry Redknapp believes a close-fought victory over Leicester was crucial to keeping his side from losing ground in the battle to avoid relegation. “It was an open, attacking game – an excellent game I thought with both teams going for it. We went one down in the first five minutes and it was their first goal in a while. They are a dangerous team on the counter attack. “We swarmed people forward but they were always dangerous on the counter The first half was as good as we have played. They created one or two on the break but I thought we were very good. “I felt the last five or six weeks that we have been playing very well. Like every manager I don’t feel like we got the points we deserved from those games. Certainly the Liverpool game here, Chelsea away and Man City – but we have been playing well.” Having broken their goalscoring duck, it could have been easy to point a finger at Leicester’s defence for slipping to a fifth defeat in six games. But Pearson was pleased with the efforts of his back-line and felt both sides did their utmost to take the points in a frenetic encounter. “It was a game in which both sides tried to win and, unfortunately for us today, we didn’t win it,” he said. “What you could say about us today is that we were a bit wasteful at times. I thought our defenders played very well – that is not the reason we conceded goals. “We created enough chances to win it. Our defenders did alright, there were some great blocks in the first half and I thought we, as a defensive unit, were fine. “Players did not track runners and your defenders are not responsible for that. We have started the game well enough and created chances throughout, it is a game we should have won in many ways.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Football News Arsenal To Offer Granit Xhaka Counselling After Fan Feud: Report

Posted on by

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Football News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. London: Arsenal will offer counselling to Granit Xhaka after the Gunners captain found himself in trouble for swearing at his own fans, according to reports in the British press. Xhaka cupped his ears and gesticulated to towards Arsenal fans who booed him when he was substituted during Sunday’s 2-2 draw against Crystal Palace at the Emirates Stadium. The 27-year-old appeared to shout “f**k off” at the crowd as he stormed towards the tunnel and pulled off his shirt.Arsenal manager Unai Emery admitted Xhaka was wrong to react that way and refused to confirm if he would remain skipper. Xhaka has held three meetings with Emery since the incident but the club are putting the player’s welfare ahead of any quick decision over his future.Reports in the British media on Tuesday said counselling will be offered should Xhaka decide on such a course of action, with Emery describing the midfielder’s mood as “upset, devastated and very sad”.It is also believed the outburst was a reaction to cumulative issues which have built up over time, including social media posts targeting Xhaka and his family.His wife Leonita set her own Instagram profile to private after receiving abusive messages aimed at her husband, while Xhaka himself raised a few eyebrows by changing his profile picture on the platform from one where he is sporting the Arsenal armband to an image of him captaining Switzerland.It is understood Xhaka has been made aware by the club of the benefits of offering an apology, but he is so far not in the right frame of mind to do so and is keen for any subsequent acknowledgement of wrongdoing to be genuine.”At the moment, I am not speaking and I don’t want to speak about that,” Emery replied when asked if Xhaka could lose the captaincy over the issue.”Now he is upset, devastated and sad. It is not only yesterday and today. He is feeling the supporters don’t like him.”His commitment with the club is a great commitment every time. He wants to help.”His behaviour was perfect in training, with the group and with the club. He knows he was wrong.”He was wrong and he feels it inside very deeply. But that is normal as a human.” Xhaka will not travel with Arsenal for Wednesday’s League Cup tie at Liverpool. last_img read more
