Island culinary picnic takes place at the olive oil grove house of one of the best olive oil producers in Croatia, Borivoj Bojanić. The extra virgin here is known as island green gold, and it's famed for its subtle flavour and distinct piquant taste. All of the herbs and vegetables used in the preparation of your meal are just as special. Each is planted and cultivated on sustainable and environmentally responsible principles. And the setting for our picnic couldn't be more perfect-an amazing view of Hvar's over 2230 years old Ager field, the oldest preserved agriculture plain in the world, a UNESCO World Heritage site. What a perfect afternoon-enjoying island life, cuisine, unspoiled nature and a fabulous host! Our culinary picnic is not just great for families and groups, but if you want to surprise your beloved with romantic place for dinner, or want to have unique celebration place for birthday or anniversary lunch/dinner on Hvar we can arrange a private affair. Just let us know what you would like—from special decorations to custom birthday cakes—and we will make it happen!
