Handcrafted delights that instantly brighten up your day. 

Ocizla is a small village in the Municipality of Hrpelje-Kozina in the Littoral region of Slovenia, near the border with Italy. The local church is dedicated to Mary Magdalene and belongs to the Parish of Klanec. The Italian writer Scipio Slataper wrote his masterpiece Il mio Carso in Ocizla. Follow the TIGR forest trail for a sensorial experience of the pristine nature.

Visit Mima’s place in order to feel the Slovenian hospitality and indulge in some local delicacies from the region, during an interactive workshop. 

The host Family will welcome you with the simplicity and authenticity.


“Tasty food, set inside our great grand mother Mima's house.”

Mima is known for her family recipes that she transmits to the younger generations in the family. Preserving the authentic way of cooking and making pasta or gnocchi is part of the family heritage.
