Tonin Pucer, called “TOMAŽEL”, after his return from the war in Russia, built a house made of stone, mud and reed, with a nice balcony made of wood.
In 2002, the actual owner, his grandchild and successor, Nevijo Pucer bought, with his family, the rest of the house from the other heirs. In this way he realized his wish to renovate the house and bring tradition back to life. Today there is a fireplace like in the old times, a bar counter made of staves and period furniture inside the house.
A built-in wall cupboard, inside the renovated Istrian house, is an old entrance to the village inn of, at that time illiterate, TONIN TOMAŽEL.
Our tourist farm is located in a small village named Puče, in the heart of the Slovenian Istria. The village is well-kown for its nice people, water springs and for the very well-kown village festival named “ PUČARSKA FJERA”. The village has a big bus turning and pick up area, a lot of footpaths, cycling paths and Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. And not long ago, there was the last Istrian BOŠKARIN ( the autochthonous Istrian ox ) in the village.
The tourist farm TONIN is located at the end of the village. There is a big yard in front of the farm with mulberry trees and an almond tree. In the summer you can enjoy your meals on our terrace in the backyard, with a view of the garden, the olive plantation, the enclosure with domestic animals and a view of the nearby villages, also of the ones which are on the Croatian side.
