What you'll do

Dive into the Olive Oil & Wine tradition in Split. Visit my family farm, learn about the ancient process to produce olive oil and wine and try the best bites of our gastronomy. It is a true Dalmatian story FROM FARM TO TABLE.

You will be guests at my family property that we own since 1537 located just next to the old fortress of Klis (GoT Meereen City), to see the beautiful nature, olive groves, vineyards and orchards. I will explain to you how much effort and patience you need to make oil and wine produce from olives and grapes. I am pleased to share my knowledge, passion and tradition that extends through my family story.

At farm also you can enjoy in presence of domestic animals as chickens, rabbits, cats and dogs. Collect chicken eggs or feed the rabbits to fell as a real farmer.

Then we go to the tavern where I'll explain how the remains of grapes produce schnapps. You will have the opportunity to see the old tools for farming, old wooden wine barrels, old style fireplace, brick oven and etc.

After that all we need is to enjoy in homemade products such as vine, schnapps, smoked meat, olive oil, cheese and breathtaking views in intimate small group in complete privacy.

Hosting is my passion and thanks to Airbnb I am sharing this passion since 2013. Since April 2017 I started to host experience at my family farm. Thanks to my family, I am passionate about nature and natural products. I learned to appreciate the agriculture and labor of my ancestors, who gave their heart and soul to produce an exceptionally traditional products flavored with love. Under the sun of the Mediterranean and the shelter of the mountain, our soil gives unforgettable flavors and fragrances transformed into olive oil, wine and schnapps. The best way to truly discover the tradition and culture of the Split region as it once was, in an indigenous environment, untouched nature and the beauty of the landscape!

We're so glad that we decided to book the opportunity to see Marin's farm. Marin was incredibly friendly and educational. We were also fortunate enough to have made new friends over Marin's exquisite food and wine, which were all products of the farm. All of this while watching the sunset over the city. This was not a "touristy" experience, but a glimpse into what life here has been for a farming family for hundreds of years. If you have any interest in learning about this beautiful place (if you're here then you probably do), don't think about it, just do it. You wont regret it.

Marin’s farm is truly magical. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Croatia, the crops under his care, the tradition behind each step to get from farm to table and the local way of life. From the views to the traditional cooking methods to the freshest fruit from the tree, the experience exceeded my expectations. And then there was the tasting! I will never look at olive oil the same way again!

An amazing local experience! Marin’s English is impeccable. We learned all about the the history of local farming, foods, wine and olive oil by walking the farm and an old traditional kitchen including the smoking process. Then their is the added bonus of the sampling. The local fresh bread, cheese, olives, pork, olive oil, wine and grappa was life changing. Thank you Marin
