Istrian breakfast

 

In Slovenia, we believe that breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

Discover Slovenian Istria in a slightly different way. Taste it! The Istrian breakfast box hides more than just delicious home-made local specialties, it also includes free tickets for authentic local experiences and tourist attractions.

A balanced breakfast gives you the energy to explore the natural, cultural and culinary treasures of Slovenian Istria, and connects you with the locals. They will tell you their stories and guide you around their corner of Istria.

There are two ways to enjoy an Istrian breakfast. You order it in advance, and then it will either be served to you on the terrace of the Small houses of Slovenian Istria, or delivered to nearby accommodations that are connected to the project. These can be either different boutique villas with pools, Istrian-style houses, or private apartments with rustic flair. All charming environments that make the large breakfast taste even better. In fact, the breakfast is so generous that you can also divide it into meals and it can double as a snack on the go.

Classic or vegetarian?

You can choose between a classic and a vegetarian Istrian breakfast. Both versions are made from delicious products from local farms. The heart of the breakfast is the Istrian bread, traditionally baked from home-ground semi-white flour with salt from Piran and extra-virgin olive oil from Slovenian Istria.

Depending on the selected version, the breakfast also includes cow cheese from a local farm, home-made “fragola” grape jam, different dried organic fruits, such as persimmon, figs, prunes, pears, kiwi and apples, Istrian honey and herbal tea, made from a blend of plantain, primrose, and nettle.

The classic Istrian breakfast also comes with Istrian salami and pancetta from an organic farm, where they carefully guard the secret house recipe for their air-cured meats, just like every other local farm. The vegetarian option will delight you with cottage cheese made from cow’s milk, as well as seasonal vegetables, such as tomatoes, cucumber, aubergine, courgettes or peppers, and fruit, such as cherries, watermelon, melon, figs, apples, grapes, and apricots, all grown at local farms.

Full of energy to discover Slovenian Istria

The Istrian breakfast package also includes free tickets that encourage you to explore five authentically local experiences free of charge for the next five days.

Herbal Paradise of Slovenian Istria will charm your senses with a very aromatic experience. You can walk through untouched nature following the herbal energetic learning trail to kažeta, a small house where the herbs are distilled using steam distillation. There, you can taste the award-winning home-made juniper brandy, and floral water or hydrolat.

At the family-owned Montis organic wine cellar, you can enjoy the velvety, fresh and authentic notes of organically made wines, from the Istrian malvasia and refosco, both of which are characteristic of the region, to different sparkling wines and the unique Montis chocolate wine. The wines are paired with a small Istrian snack.

The Marima organic farm, the sweetest destination on your list, has been dedicated to growing fruit for several generations. You will be shown around the orchard and the olive grove, learn about the history of an old Istrian village, Trebeše, and discover the wonderful nature crowned by the largest waterfall in Istria set in flysch, the Stranice waterfall. You will also learn about different fruit-drying methods.

The basis of Istrian cuisine is definitely the locally made olive oil. Let the olive growers behind the Carcauec brand show you the mysteries of olive oil. After a ride in a 4×4 off-road vehicle, you can take a romantic walk through an olive grove planted as an engagement present, enjoy the smell of lavender growing in it, and meet the four ponies that graze there. No visit to the olive grove would be complete without tasting the extra-virgin olive oil and home-made brine-pickled olives, and they also like to offer their unique persimmon vinegar. The experience ends with their natural cosmetic products, where olive oil is an important ingredient.

You can end your exploration by climbing the 204 steps to the top of the Koper tower, formerly a defence tower that was turned into a bell tower in the 15th century. This way, you can end the day with a view of all the hidden corners of Koper that can be easily missed while walking around the town.

The delicious local breakfast will give you the energy to discover the joys and beauty of Slovenian Istria.
