I say, “P.S.” because Motovun was a bit of a side note to our trip to Rovinj, Croatia. We flew into Trieste, Italy and drove to Croatia via Slovenia. On our way out, we decided to stop in Motovun and indulge in some truffles. Eating and buying anything truffle is practically obligatory in Istria. Motovun in particular.
There’s a handful of restaurants on the top of this little mountain town. I’m actually pretty sure there are more shops dedicated to truffles than restaurants.
It’s very common in Croatia for wineries to sell wine in bulk. People bring their own jug and fill it up there. Right as we pasted this cute spot, I saw a smiley old couple leaving with their full jug. I love watching interactions between locals and catching a glimpse a bit of their daily life.
Personally, I wouldn’t stay the night here because it’s a little too small. However, it is worth checking out if you are in the area and have a hankering for some truffles.
