Our estate spreads over 35 hectares of land located in the Municipality of Gračišće. The house and farming facilities are situated near Gržići, a village with only 3 families and just a few house numbers. Our farm can be found at the end of the village and is separated from the rest of the village offering the possibility to be separated from everything even though everything is nearby... The villagers are occupied with agriculture or small craftsmanship ensuring your stay is peaceful and safe.
The farmhouse «Stari kostanj» (Old Chestnut) got its name after an old chestnut tree which used to be a protected natural monument until struck by lightning during a stormy night. The tree caught fire and it took three days to put the fire out. After some years our old tree started to grow again and it still lives and holds ground. Come to meet it, let it meet you and become a part of its long life. We felt respect for it and made it a part of us - so much that it became a name and symbol of our house and our family.
Our greatest love are our numerous animals, the nature that surrounds us all, vines and wine, the fragrance of freshly baked bread and dried prosciutto on the table. Everything blends into our primary activity - agriculture - which involves the whole family. Family is our greatest love and our greatest wealth - come and become a part of our family for some time, work with us, enjoy with us...
Our greatest pride is our cows - the indigenous Istrian Podolian cattle, known for their strength and tameness. Some time ago the oxen called boškarin were used in most of the farming jobs - today they have been replaced by modern mechanisation. We are proud to have joined the campaign aimed to preserve this indigenous variety of cows and old Istrian traditions. Apart from cows, on our farm live horses, sheep, a billy goat named Franc, hens, geese, pheasants, conies, dogs and cats.
What is even more important is that here you can find peace, shut your mind off, enjoy the view, breath in fresh air, eat healthy organic food - grown and prepared on our farm, drink wine whose production you can follow from the vineyard to the table, sleep in a detached house, wake up happy in the morning...
