    My name is Mia Brajković.
    I'm living in Pazin in central Istria and I'm a chef and a musician. I own a restaurant and am a partner in agrotourism near Pazin. We collaborate to connect nature for our guests. We work in peace. We work for making community of respect and subline the individuality in all of us.

    Cultural exchange and learning opportunities

    Seights of beautiful landscapes..from sea to mountains, great castles, knowing Mediterranean culture's. Olive oil and wine land.
    We cook and bring us back in nature. One you learn so.. you're going to ache for living this. Because you actually live.

    We train our body and soul together.
    To gather.

    You learn to work with fire, learn how to parallax forest. We take dry wooden parts of braches, clean the forest withit..and use same recycled materials in building houses on our land. So we can have more of souls like you :)

    We share art of music.
    We teach making ceramic from our Istrian clay.
    You can teach how to make liquers, wine, syrups.
    You can teach herbs which bring our health and teach how are they prepared.

    ..All around us is art.

    The travelers as first get to meet Istria. Than comes the volunteer. The volunteering just covers the accomodation and food charges. The hosts of agrotourism are very friendly and industrious, so it's why I start this. It should be seen. They can show you tradition of our roots interlaced with future.

    Art is here all around us. From biodynamic gardening and wineyards, free cooking and pastry classes in our kitchens, picking mushrooms, herbs, forest fruits..we have wooden houses in building for a camp resort for our guests and workers, so you can teach recycling wood and work with clay. Each house is made in it's own architecture. For all that you work with households, all is drawn and prepared before working.

    We have lots of animals, so we teach how to behave with horses, how to train them or the dogs in our around. The place offers peace. It's a way of living. We eat from our gardens, we train yoga together, we camp together. We are a pack of good.
    We're connected with as much naturalist in our country, so many artistic souls.. We want to improve not just our land, we influence on whole county. We want to show the world our better future and make it happen wider.

    The agrotourism was revived a year ago, so we're just on the very beginning.
    If you want to be a part of our building nation..we are here for you.

    with love,

  • Accommodation


    Houses are made in forest, which is connected with our land, restaurant and appartment land. 500 m distance.
    Houses are in radius of cca 100m alone. The land has 35 and more hectare of wood, so we go on quality of accomodation from our first acts.
    We want to make tree houses too, so one part of accomodation can be on our trees. We have a small boat which we decor for our guests to stay in.
    All our accomodation is cca 20-50 m2, because we want to make it easy to maintain and to show how much we actually need to be. We're more than half of our day outside. Walking..upgrading..working..
    Food is managed in specific fields. We take best land for our groceries.
    We have a small stream which can be managed in a big river if we clean through of the river. It sorounds our whole land. In the valley there is underground lake which can be heard in cave where land opened.
