The tavern Dolina, in the small Istrian village Gradinje, near mythical Motovun, is an ideal place to enjoy a home-cooked Istrian cuisine, unspoiled nature and perfect for an escape from the everyday bustle, noise and stress. It is only a kilometer from the famous Health Resort Istarske toplice, which is well known by sulfur rich thermal waters. Nearby are the famous picturesque Istrian town of Motovun, Buzet and Groznjan, and just half an hour drive away is the sea in Novigrad, Umag and Porec.Surrounded by greenery in the valley of the Mirna River, you can enjoy the authentic Istrian dishes, of which the most significant are the truffles that grow in the surrounding forests.
