About this location

The Istria region

Istria region of Croatia borders Croatia's Dalmatian coast and Slovenia. It has miles of dramatic Adriatic coastline, and is in easy reach of national parks, the alps, lakes, and south to the many croatian islands.

Istria is a sunny yet green location, not as barren as the more southern locations of croatia.

Olivia House is located in the small town of Buje.

The Istrian Peninsula is the most north-western province of croatia, it stretches from Kanegra near the Slovenian border then as we head south its coastline passes the main towns of Umag, Novigrad, Porec, Rovinj, Fazana, Pula (Istria's largest town). Premantura and Medulin are on the southernmost tip. The jagged coast then curves northeast towards Labin, Rabac and Opatija.The whole coastline boasts many beaches coves, small fishing ports.

This region of breath-taking scenery and superb Roman ruins is a paradise for gourmets... a gastronomic delight. Istria enjoys a unique culinary repertoire. Being one of the most eco-friendly nations in the Mediterranean, only the freshest, organically-grown food reaches its markets and restaurants, and the region abounds with superb local delicacies.

The crystalline waters of the Adriatic teem with over 400 known species of fish, for which Croatians have devised a wide repertoire of recipes. In many restaurants you may not find a detailed menu as much will depend on the best and freshest catch of the morning – let your hosts make the choice for you! The region is also rich in delicious shellfish, from oysters glistening on their shells to salads of octopus and potato, scented with garlic and dressed with the rich local olive oil. You'll also find langoustines, crab and the famous mussels of the Lim Channel. You should also sample the delicious typically Croatian risotto of tender squid, the rice black with iodine-rich ink.

The land is no less bountiful. Throughout April and May there is an abundance of wild asparagus and the region is renowned for the quality of its truffles. Harvested in inland Istria since ancient times, their outstanding flavour was prized by Roman emperors and Austro- Hungarian aristocrats.

The most popular meat throughout the country is janjetina (lamb): many roadside restaurants display a whole lamb roasting on a spit; but young, tender meat is served in countless ways, from simple grills to the savoury Peka – an elaborate dish which must be ordered at least 24 hours in advance, as the food is baked for hours beneath an iron bell buried in glowing embers.

Prsut (Dried ham)-dried on 'Bora' wind for approx 1 year served with 'Sir' (pro-nounced 'seer', local cheeses. Other popular istrian dishes are 'Minestra' thick chunky meat or vegetarian soup and also Gnocchi served with a goulash of wild meat (venison, rabbit or wild pig) or local cheese toping.

Those with a sweet tooth will also find much to please them. Desserts include palacinke (pancakes) and various strudles filled with jabuka (apple), tresnja (cherry) or sir (cream cheese). Sladoled, Croatian ice cream, is almost as popular on the eastern Adriatic as it is in Italy.

The dishes mentioned here are no more than a tantalising glimpse of the richness and variety of Istria's cuisine – there is so much more to experience. Wherever you dine, from five star restaurants to small family run cafés, the food cannot fail to delight.

Finally, the true gourmet is generally also a connoisseur of fine wine: you won't be disappointed. Istria is renowned for its Vinska Cesta, or Wine Road – an area of taverns, restaurants and wine tasting houses. Local most popular wines are Malvasia, Teran, Merlot and Muscat. We have found buying wine from a local small producer makes for a great experience as you see the people, the vats and even better even get to try the wine before buying!!


Many beaches within very easy reach. As well as the new AquaPark

Buje region is renowned for its olives and wine roads.

Throughout the season the are many festivals and music events, there will be one every night during the high season, each village has its own events and span across the year.

Inland Istria is home to many sites and places to visit From the artist towns like Motovun, Groznjan, the beautiful lake Brtonigla with its surrounding hillside villages. Thermal spring spa at Istarska Toplice. Market towns of Buzet and Pazin for Istrian produce. The Ucka national park has miles of trails and walks with spectacular scenery. Brijuni island is home to Tito's animal park.

Closeby within easy 10 minute drive or good biking distance we have Croatias largest Aquapark, featuring the highest water slide in Croatia and the largest wavepool in the mediterranean.
