We had a wonderful time truffle hunting with Miro and his dogs, Bella and Lila. Afterwards Miro’s wife Mirjana prepared an amazing truffle meal for us and was the kindest and most welcoming hostess. Definitely recommend a visit!

Truffle hunting with Miro Tartufi is an absolute must!
May 2021
Truffle hunting with Miro Tartufi is an absolutely awesome experience in Motovun - and really all of the Istrian Peninsula. My wife and I did it together and had a blast. We started with a trip into the woods with Miro and his two beautiful dogs, who found three black truffles - incredible watching the dogs work! We then went back to the Miro Tartufi tasting room where we drank local malvazia wine and had a delicious truffle-themed food tasting. To top it off, Mirjana - Miro's wife - made us truffle scrambled eggs - with the three truffles we just found!

We can't emphasize enough: if you're looking for an awesome way to spend a few hours - and eat a ton of amazing food - go truffle hunting with Miro Tartufi. You won't regret it!

フレンドリーな雰囲気の中,貴重なトリュフ狩り体験
May 2021
2018年に新婚旅行で訪れました。予約はウェブサイトのフォームから英語で連絡し,英語でメールをやりとりして日程を調整しました。メールの返信は素早く日程調整はスムーズでした。

当日は,ミロさん・ミリャーナさん夫妻が案内してくれました。当日の参加者は皆外国からの旅行者(アメリカ人やヨーロッパ人)で,説明は英語です。英語はゆっくりと話してくれて分かりやすいので,基本の英会話ができればなんとかなると思います。

朝10時頃に現地に到着すると,自家製のラキア(色の透き通った,養命酒みたいに香りとアルコール度数の強いお酒。自分で運転して行く人は注意してください)とフレーバーウォーターで出迎えていただきました。簡単な説明の後,トリュフを掘る犬のベラ・ネロと一緒にミロさんの車で出発です。5分か10分車に揺られた後,森の中の駐車場に着きました。

トリュフ狩りでは,林道に沿ってミロさんに連れられたベラがトリュフを狩ります。一見なんの変哲もない地面をベラが鼻で急に掘り出したかと思うと,黒い塊のトリュフが地面から出てきました。掘り当てたばかりのトリュフを嗅がせてもらうととても香ばしかったです。

トリュフ狩り体験の後は,ミリャーナさんがトリュフ料理を振る舞ってくれました。トリュフを贅沢に削ったオムレツ(大きなフライパンで作るところをみんなに見せてくれます)や,トリュフとチーズをあわせたサラダ,カナッペなど,これでもかというくらいトリュフづくしの昼食で大満足でした。

最後の支払いは現金です。イストラ半島全体がのどかで温かい雰囲気のとても良い場所でしたが,その中でもハイライトとなる,新婚旅行のとても良い思い出になりました。

Thanks so much Mirjana and Miro for your kindness! The truffle hunting was tremendously impressive and awesome memory for us.

Really fun truffle hunt and delicious food!
May 2021
If you want a wonderful food and cultural experience, go visit Miro and Mirjana! We took their truffle tour with our 3 year old and nearly 6 month old and it was our favorite part of the vacation. Walking into the woods with Miro and his dogs, Bella and Lila, was a fun adventure. Miro is very knowledgable about all things truffle and it is really fun watching the dogs do their work. Its made all that much better with the delicious food Mirjana has prepared upon your return. We feasted on several truffle delicacies and local wine. Then Mirjana prepared fresh scrambled eggs with the truffles we found on our hunt. Our son was delighted to get to help! To tell you how good the eggs were: My husband and I aren't really a fan of eggs. He says he hasn't eaten them since he was forced to in the Army -- and we both had second helpings! Mirjana told us about everything we ate and how it was all sourced. This really added to the appreciation we had for the food. Her attention to detail in making both of our children feel welcome was also wonderful. We really felt like guests at their home rather than tourists. After our tour, they provided some helpful suggestions for spending a little time in Motovun. It is a very charming village and their pride in it shows! The best cultural experience I have had while traveling. We will definitely return!

Great and tasty experience!
Nov 2020 • Couples
Great family activity. First we took an educative tour in local forest and try a real truffle hunting with mr. Miro and his two lovely dogs. We were lucky enough to find a few pieces of white truffels. After hunting we came back to house where mrs. Mirjana prepared great tasting truffel menu. We tried different kinds of cheese, "boškarin" sausage, fresh salad, selection of truffel spreads and creamy scrumbled eggs with white truffels called "fritaja". There was also a great white wine from local winery and homemade liquors and juice. The journey ends with tasty chocolate cake dressed with honey and white truffels. We definitely recommend this.

Intimate Family-run Truffle hunting experience with an amazing meal after
Sep 2020
We visited Miro in September and enjoyed every minute of our truffle hunting experience. When we arrived at the house we were welcomed with Biska or homemade mistletoe brandy and elderflower water. After another couple arrived we drove a few minutes away to the forest where the dogs began hunting. Miro and his wife were very kind in letting us borrow jackets since it was early in the morning and a bit chilly that day. Within the first 15 minutes of walking through the forest we found a black truffle and found about 5 more throughout the hour long hike. It’s a thrill each time the dogs find a truffle and the entire walk has beautiful scenery while you’re waiting in anticipation.

When we drove back to their house Miro’s wife poured us homemade wine and we sampled all of the truffle products such as cheeses, meats, honey, oils, and truffle spreads. She also taught us how to prepare a truffle omelette with the truffles we had found that day. The last course is a chocolate cake with truffle honey and fresh truffles. The entire meal was delicious and the entire time you’re learning about the science of truffles and how the business works. If you’re interested in truffles I would highly recommend this tour. It’s an intimate family run setting with great food and for a very reasonable price!

Amazing
Oct 2020
Amazing experience - would recommend to anyone visiting Istria! Both Miro and Mirjana were extremely hospitable and friendly hosts. First we headed out with Miro and two lovely dogs for a spot of truffle hunting - we were lucky enough to find 2 white and 1 black truffle. We came back to a truffle feast, plenty of wine and were told all about truffles. Mirjana then prepared us some scrambled eggs with the truffles that we had found followed by a cake with truffles. Everything was delicious - do not miss this experience!
