Family Farm Butina
IQM Members - Family Farm Butina
We are a family that has returned from the big city Zagreb to live in the small village
of Kuterevo in the bottom of Velebit, to peruse working in the long standing family
tradition of tourism and hospitality.
At our house we offer
accommodation, but also food and drinks that we prepare according
to the traditional recipes.
For each of our guests we prepared special greeting: we offer our grappa, made out of
plum and homemade bread and cheese.
We do not like to say that we are engage
d in classic tourism but actually we like to say that
we work in "home hospitality" because we open the door of our home to our guests,
introducing them to the countryside life and the Velebit mountain in which we live.
Our guests can take part in shading
of dried out grass that farmers use as animal food,
animal care, goat milking, farming activities and preparation of all goodies for the winter
(jam, traditional ajvar, juice, grappa). The youngest members can enjoy riding ponies,
playing with rabbits and small goats.
To all our guests we will show workshops of skilled woodworkers who make homemade
wooden souvenirs such as Kuterevo’s famous guitar instrument ‘Dangubica’ which they
can take home as a souvenir or let us play it for them.
The peace of the wild
, the fresh mountain air, the view of the surrounding hills will be what
they will see in the morning when the roosters will wake them up. In our home you will be
able to forget your alarm clock and let yourself be awaken by the nature.
From our home that
we will share with our guests , they can go hiking, walking, cycling on
numerous attractive trails or visit the nearby little bear Refuge camp, Northern Velebit
National Park, Gacka River or go swimming in one of the beaches in the Velebit Channel.
