  • GOLF More »


    Near Villa Valdepian, there is a professional 18-hole golf course with a total length of 6,360m spread over 80 hectares. Just like all seaside golf courses, Golf Adriatic can be pretty challenging due to the wind, in addition to strategically placed bunkers and cleverly designed greens. The course fits perfectly into the surrounding landscape with its rocks, natural lakes, and typical evergreen vegetation, which are characteristic of the Mediterranean landscapes.





    Challenge yourself with a hunt for aromatic truffles and get to know all their secrets. We will set off into the forest to collect truffles and learn all about them from an experienced truffle hunter and his trained dog. Along the way, we will find out if truffles are really an aphrodisiac and, with a little bit of luck, actually find some under the roots of trees.

    The trip is suitable for organized groups, families or couples. The entire experience can also be curated for teambuilding groups.



    For all lovers of good wine, we organise guided tastings and tours of estates and cellars, where you will surrender to the aromas and exceptional flavours of the best Istrian wines.
