What does a chef do when he realises that the stress of the hospitality’s everyday rush started to suffocate his creativity and his culinary expression?

 

He turns to himself and re-prioritizes his core values – so, obviously, he turns to nature. To work in line with nature and cook from nature.

In the spring of 2020, at the peak of the uncertainty of the first lockdown amidst the Covid-19 epidemic, Bine and Katarina, after thorough deliberation, changed the course of their life and career. In the serene rural environment of the western foothills of Goričko, where they were awaited by their old little house for their “silver” years, they built a comfortable homestead that offers their guests a home and a haven, a relaxed retreat and a table covered with delicacies gathered from nature and grown at the surrounding farms. The Monstera Estate is encircled by greenery and animal greetings from the nearby farm – this is “a rural zen” in Slovenian style!

 

Bine Volčič

Chef Bine’s kitchen is filled with domestic warmth, where following the seasons they reap the fruits and veggies of the surroundings and respectfully preserve them for the less generous part of the year. The hosts Bine and Katarina invite their guests to gather around the indoor or outdoor fireplace or even in the chef’s kitchen itself where Bine creates the magic of his flavours.

»The new luxury has not been material for a while now, it is also not about the experiences anymore; it is the opportunity to return to »yourself« and personal growth due to discoveries that come to meet us on our way. 

 

However, this takes time – slow time, stopped time… Thus your hosts, Bine and Katarina Volčič, invite you to take time to enjoy your »soul getaway«, for the weekend you’ll be in safe hands…

Novi luksuz ni več materialni, niti ne gre več zgolj za doživetje, temveč za priložnost povratka k »sebi« in osebnostno rast zaradi spoznanj, ki nam ob tem pridejo naproti.

Small business groups of up to 18 guests can retreat to the countryside’s serene greenery for creative or strategic work. A special multi-purpose room is available for team building or lectures as well as for yoga classes or sound baths.

Spring of 2007… it was destined for a Ljubljana city girl Katarina and a chef from Kranj to meet in the City of lights… Their love, at first sight, followed them from Paris via Murska Sobota and Kranj to Goričko, where the family of 4 (plus their dog) settled in 2022. They became huge fans of the countryside lifestyle and active members of the engaged local community.
