About

Sunny Hills of Istria is a project  that aims for sustainable revitalization of rural area of Slovene Istra.

Association Sunny Hill  organises workshops, retreats, conferences and events immersed in pristine nature, away form the hustle and bustle of the cities but still, only half hour away from tourist centers at Slovene and Croatian Adriatic coast.

Cooperative Sunny Hills of Istria offers the venue. 200 years old traditional building where the events take place was fully renovated in 2016 and exhibits sustainable solutions such as compost toilets, reedbeds for waste water treatment, clay plasters and more.

Cooperative and association are entangled in a vibrant community that hosts long and short term volunteers who help with the household, maintenance, garden and whatever is on the to do list at a time.  Cooperative members, volunteers and long  term guests  live and work together in luxurious simplicity following four guidelines: agreement of people, harmony of space, resonance of life, and joy of co-existence.

Luxuris simplicity is a concept of simple lifestile that doesn’t restrict us from the basic comfort of the modern times.  We share tools and cars, we try to buy only necessary stuff, repair, upcycle and recycle whenever possible, buy bulk, produce own food and cook together. We are trying to be conscious how our actions effect the environment, other humans and other living beings.
