The home of Butul is located on Manžan, a village 5km away from the Koper city centre. Our culinary offer has different smells and flavours of Slovenian Istria and the Mediterranean.
Istrian breakfasts, snacks and meals at the Butul farmhouse are something special. They consist of local and seasonal ingredients, mostly produced by us, or by working with local suppliers. It’s the same with the rest of the offer. When visiting one of the most original, special and self-contained temples of Slovenian autochthonous cuisine, where visitors are offered not only excellent dishes, but also our heart, you will have a chance to relax and enjoy yourself. This way, you can get an unforgettable peek into a unique place, its pure seasonal produce and ways of preparing dishes you dared not to even dream about! You can, of course, arrange to spend the night on the farm, and perhaps even turn your stay into longer active holidays.
Excursions to the surrounding areas are at hand and really close to the seaside.
