Motovun is one of Istria’s most beautiful and best-preserved medieval hilltop settlements. It’s best known for its film festival, which transforms this otherwise sleepy town into a cultural and party hub for one week every summer, a cross between Sundance and Glastonbury. Surrounded by truffle-rich forest, which provides the key ingredient for top local restaurants here and in nearby Livade, Motovun stands atop a 277-metre hill overlooking the Mirna Valley. Sunsets are spectacular, as are the views from the main bar in town, the Montona Gallery.
RECOMMENDED: where to eat, sleep and drink in Motovun.
