The Istrian interior is agrarian and food-focused – the kind of place where the roads are marked "Oil Route" and "Wine Route." So, what better place to stay than at a farm hotel? The Agroturizam San Mauro is run by the Sinkovic family, who have been making wine in Momjan for nearly a century. You'll likely be greeted by Gigi and Jack, the retired truffle pigs who live on the property. Rooms are spacious and comfortable (some have sea views) and there's a large terrace where you can enjoy breakfast or sample some of their wines. We did not have dinner here (though it is reported to be excellent) but breakfasts are generous, and feature the family's homemade jam and honey.
