Wine & Heritage - Johan i Matija

Istria - Grandići | Barban 4 km

Description


Comfortable apartments and rooms in a lovely, rural ambience, breakfast included

In the small village of Grandići, the country house with pretty blue shutters immediately catches the eye, once the property of the hardworking couple "Johan & Matija". Founded at the beginning of the 20th century as a family winery, Johan & Matija were then among the best winemakers in the region. A special story that deserves to be told and heard. Since the couple had no descendants to take over the winery, the house fell into a long slumber, from which it has been lovingly awakened in the last six years. Today the property belongs to the Radola family, which has restored and refurbished the house with much love, care, attention to detail, and respect for the old traditions. They also produce excellent wines, which you can of course taste. Behind the historic walls today hides a special guest accommodation that combines contemporary comfort with ancient traditions. In addition to two tastefully furnished apartments, two comfortable rooms are also available for rent. Thanks to the advantageous location in the green hinterland of the Istrian peninsula, the house is not only suitable for a relaxing stay, but also as a starting point for exciting excursions. The well-known coastal towns, such as Pula, Rovinj and Poreč are located within a maximum radius of 50 km and can be easily reached by car. And those who prefer to travel without a car can explore the area on foot or by bike. To the sea in the bay Blaz it is only 8 km.

Location

Istria - Istria

Istria is a wonderful world in miniature;  it is the largest peninsula of the Adriatic, lies below the Alps, and is encircled by the Adriatic sea. Looking at the geographic map of Croatia you will find Istria immediately. It is based in the western-most part of the country, encircled by the sea, and it has the shape of a heart. The small islands and cultivated fields that stretch to the sea and a beautiful sunset, where the sun seems to melt into the sea, will stir the passions and will help you to discover new emotions. The eastern part of the peninsula is made of limestone. Its coast is full of rocks and high, nearly inaccessible, cliffs which will astonish you, and from the tops of which you will see the yellow and gilded sun that illuminates the landscape and the sea in a crystalline colour. In the spring and summer the landscape is covered in intense green, and in the autumn it is transformed magically into the colours of yellow and red that make the hills appear as if on fire. After you have tasted the oil of the olive and the truffle, you cannot but enjoy these simple foods for their intense flavour. Istria is a land rich with millennium history. Here were once settled Histrians, Romans, Goths, Byzantines, Lombardies, and  and in more recent ages also Venetians, the Napoleonic army and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. All of them have left indelible traces that have influenced not only the architecture but, above all, the culture of this world which always has been multiethnic and tolerant. Even today it is a land with many cultures and ethnic races, all living peacefully together.

Popular historical and natural attractions of Istria to visit are: the Eufrasian Basilica in Porec, from the sixth century, which in 1997 has been inscribed by UNESCO on the World Heritage List; the national park of Brijuni (Brioni) which consists of 14 islands and over the centuries has been a very popular holiday resort. The remains of some roman villas testify to the fact that many personalities from the XX century have chosen Brijuni for their vacation. The best known among these is surely the former President of Yugoslavia, Marshall Josip Broz Tito. The ancient city of Pula, today the economic centre of Istria, fascinates above all for its roman remains, still very well conserved, like the imposing amphitheatre, the beautiful August temple and many others. Fans of good food will find in Istria many restaurants and taverns, where tasteful local and regional specialties are served. Furthermore the region is known for its excellent wines, whose secret is jealously guarded in Istrian wine cellars. An, often recommended, wine from among many is Istrian Malvazia, a typical white wine from the region.

Young people who love the sun, the sea and entertainment, will surely not be disappointed, as all this is offered in the numerous tourist villages and in the holiday centres of Istria.

Although Istria is one of the well known Mediterranean regions for holidays, its inland areas are yet to be discovered. We are referring to "green Istria", with its green hills and small hilltop villages, the white cliffs, the forests, the limestone hollows, the small churches and the old medieval castles covered with ivy.
