Dream vacation at Livade, the world’s truffle center
Livade is a small scenic village located at the very heart of the Istrian peninsula, and it is the home of Zigante, a brand built around delicious truffles, which includes a restaurant specialized in serving creative truffle dishes, a shop that offers unique truffle delicacies, and a hotel which provides comfortable accommodation.
Here in Livade everything is about tradition and rich historical and cultural heritage, so it’s no wonder that four-star accommodation Zigante is actually set in an old, but completely renovated Istrian stone house. You can choose to stay in one of the three rooms with rustic interior design, which are all fully furnished and equipped with modern amenities such as AC, minibar, TV with cable programs and, of course, free Wi-fi internet access.
Because of its unique location, the hotel also presents a perfect starting point for various activities and adventures. You can discover breathtaking nature by participating in demonstrational truffle-hunting in the nearby Motovun forest or by taking long walks along the bank of Mirna river and, along the way, you can also taste some of the exceptional homemade products such as olive oil, cheese, and truffle delicacies. Since Livade is located in the middle of Istria, you can visit all the urban areas and cities quite easily. Umag and Poreč are only a half hours’ drive away from Livade, and it takes about an hour to reach Rovinj, Pula, and Rijeka.
If you are eager to experience a somewhat different vacation and replace the city noise and asphalt with peace, quiet, nature, and amazing gourmet adventures, then Livade and Zigante accommodation are the perfect choice for you.
