Istria offers a moltitude of landscapes, from the Ucka mountains to large vineyards, white-topped mountains, lush wheat fields, plateaux, valleys, vineyards and olive groves on hillsides, and, finally the sea.

 

Once you approach our land, you will discover the Istrian region in enchanting details: church facades and portals, tiny village alleyways with their specific architectural touches, the babble of a stream, the blossoming cherries. Everything is warm–hearted and friendly here: nature, towns and people.  It's hard to not get rub off by the quite slowness of the inland or remain engaged by the vibrant coast life.
