first_imgThe small family camp Polidor in Istrian Funtana is recording excellent results, and with a capacity of 300 guests it is one of the few camps that is open all year round.A upravo je Polidor camping park osvojio 1. mjesto za najbolji mali kamp u sklopu Dana hrvatskog turizma i akcije koju provodi Hrvatska gospodarska komora Turistički cvijet – Kvaliteta za Hrvatsku, u sklopu koje se dodjeljuju priznanja najboljim gospodarskim subjektima turističkog sektora.Mali obiteljski kamp Polidor u istarskoj Funtani bilježi izvrsne rezultate. S kapacitetom od 300 gostiju jedan je od rijetkih kampova koji radi cijelu godinu. Otvoren je u srpnju 2015. i u posljednjih deset mjeseci ostvario je 36.800 noćenja. U punoj sezoni u kampu je zaposleno 35 radnika. U projekt otvorenja kampa uloženo je 20 milijuna kuna, a ove godine ulaže se još u dodatne sadržaje, smještajne objekte, te uređenje plaže.Mali obiteljski kampovi su “novi” turistički trend koji svakako ima svoju publiku i svoju priču, a najveće prednosti su personalizirani i prisniji pristup kao i kod domaćina u obiteljskom smještaju, te fokus na kvalitetnu, a ne na kvantitetu.15 million kuna invested in the opening of the camp, and this year they are investing an additional 4,5 million in swimming pools and luxury tentsCamp Polidor generates revenue of 2016 million kuna in 3,5, and this year, given the increase in capacity, it expects an increase of 10 percent. HRK 15 million has been invested in the project of opening the camp, and this year another HRK 4,5 million is being invested in additional facilities and accommodation facilities. Camp Polidor is preparing many novelties, and the most important is the construction of two swimming pools, one for adults and the other for children with water attractions, which together with the pool bar will open in April. In addition, seven new luxury mobile homes and 12 luxury glamping tents are being introduced this year, offering special breakfasts in baskets.In order to extend the season, ie to solve the problem of seasonality, we must sell diverse, authentic and quality content because the motive for coming is not accommodation, but a tourist destination. They are well aware of this in the Polidor camp, which, in cooperation with local entrepreneurs, sells various thematic content and additional content. “U pred i posezoni surađujemo s lokalnim pružateljima usluge i raznih doživljaja, od bike i vinskih tura, fish piknika do obilaska raznih atrakcija, kao na primjer Dinoparka za djecu ili odlaska na ribolov. Moramo iskoristiti sve to nam se nudi u okolici, sve atrakcije i doživljaje jer upravo oni motiviraju goste za dolaskom van sezone. „ isriče Gulis Ukušić iz kampa Polidor te dodaje kako su ove godine sklopili razna nova partnerstva od kojih puno očekuju te kako sada samo trebaju lijepo upakirati cijelu turističku priču i samo je ispričati gostima. Inače, ove godine imaju 20-30 posto bolji booking nego prošle godine.Polidor has already received numerous awards, among which INOVACAMP 2016 stands out for its innovative concept of providing high-quality personalized service. The owners of the camp cultivate a personalized approach to each guest, and the innovation is manifested primarily in the multi-purpose building with numerous facilities for guests in the winter months. In the heated rooms there is a bathroom with toilets for children and the disabled, showers, family bathroom, space for hand washing and dishes and even a shower for pets. The building also includes a children’s playroom with a large slide, a small fitness room, and massage and billiards areas. In the second building, on the other hand, there is a room for socializing with a fireplace and a TV for socializing in the winter. Near the camp there is a modern beach to which guests are transported by train.In addition to the quality accommodation that is taken for granted, in the Polidor camp they sell quality service and content and through synergy with other local entrepreneurs make a winning combination and formula for a great tourist story. See how they do it on the camp website  www.campingpolidor.com, which is more than modern and functional, which is certainly the point of the “and” of this great tourist story.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Rich Pedroncelli)ExpandSACRAMENTO — Paul George and Kawhi Leonard had far more success passing the ball in the first half than they did shooting it – and the Clippers still put up nearly 60 points.That, as Leonard pointed out afterward, bodes well for a franchise in serious pursuit of its first NBA championship.George had 21 points with season-highs of 11 rebounds and nine assists to shake off a slow start, and the short-handed Clippers thumped the Sacramento Kings 105-87 on Tuesday afternoon.Leonard scored 14 of his 24 points in the third quarter to help the Clippers to their 14th consecutive win in Sacramento dating to 2013. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 The Clippers played without Patrick Beverley and sixth man Lou Williams. Beverley is expected to miss several games while nursing a sprained right wrist he injured during Saturday night’s loss in Utah, while Williams missed the game because of personal reasons.Richaun Holmes had 22 points and 10 rebounds for Sacramento, which has lost eight straight.“They pushed us around out there and they had their way,” Sacramento coach Luke Walton said. “We have to come together and we’ve got to be mentally stronger, physically stronger and fight our way out of it. That’s the only way to get out of this type of slump that we’re in, and we’ve done it before.”Three days after a 13-point loss to Utah, the Clippers took control in the first half despite both George and Leonard struggling offensively. The All-Stars missed 17 of their first 24 shots combined.Both got going after the break.Leonard made five of seven shots in the third quarter, and George – who missed eight of his first nine shots beyond the arc – made a 3-pointer to open the fourth. George added another 3-pointer later that put the Clippers ahead 103-86.“I had the mindset of just go and attack, be aggressive, be physical,” George said. “I got the spots I wanted to. I got to the shots I wanted to. But it’s just that stretch for me right now where the ball’s not going down.”Related Articles Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime center_img Even with Leonard and George struggling most of the first half, the Clippers still built a big lead on the slumping Kings late in the second quarter. Shamet’s 3-pointer gave the Clippers a 57-40 halftime lead.Leonard got going in the third and the Clippers went on a 9-2 run to extend their lead to 19. Montrezl Harrell tipped in an offensive rebound then made a pair of free throws that made it 85-66.WIN, THEN LOSE, THEN WINThe Clippers have alternated wins and losses over the past nine games. George said that’s indicative of a team with new players still trying to adjust.“We’ve probably got one game under our belt where everybody’s been healthy,” George said. “We’re still learning each other. Our winning streak’s going to come, sooner than later I believe.”UP NEXTThe Clippers host Detroit on Thursday at Staples Center. For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ “That’s what championship teams are about,” said Leonard, who led Toronto to the title a year ago before signing with the Clippers in hopes of bringing them their first championship.“Going through playoff runs, the best players aren’t going to play great some nights. It might be somebody off the bench or somebody (else) starting that has a big game that propels us to win.”Ivica Zubac added eight points and 13 rebounds and Maurice Harkless scored 12 points for the Clippers. The visitors also got a big lift from Larry Shamet and Derrick Walton Jr., who combined for 19 points.That was pivotal on a night when George shot 6 for 25 and Leonard was 8 for 21.“We just kind of hung in there,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “We went zone a little bit and changed our look. I just like our defense.”last_img read more
