In the Istrian village of only three inhabitants near Grožnjan, in the middle of last year, San Canzian Village & Hotel was located – a new five-star boutique hotel. A unique place that exudes an authentic Istrian atmosphere, combining traditional and modern offers guests an individual approach and superior service. San Canzian has a total of 24 rooms and suites inspired by Istrian charm that are fused into a medieval ambience. After the successful completion of the first phase of the San Canzian project, which culminated in the inclusion of this Istrian pearl in the prestigious group Small Luxury Hotels of the World, one of the most exciting hotel projects in Croatia in 2020 is moving forward. Thus, from January 1, the management of San Canzian Village & Hotel completely took over the management of the entire offer, with a day focus on the unique and unforgettable experience of its guests. Photo: FB Mario Mandarić This is the right direction we need, as many small family and boutique hotels as possible, with a top and authentic offer. This means that Noel Buje no longer exists, but the owners of the San Canzian Hotel and the owners of the Zagreb restaurant Noel will still continue their cooperation through occasional joint gastronomic “pop up” projects, as the hotel owners point out. Photo: San Canzian Village & Hotel “Precise, not pretentious cuisine, based on excellent local ingredients, distinguishes the only Croatian chef who was a sous chef in a 3-Michelin-star restaurant. The top-quality breakfast is created from local and mostly organic ingredients from our own production, and for lunch guests have at their disposal an a la carte offer of modernly presented traditional Istrian dishes such as maneštra, pljukanci and seasonal truffles. The selection of menus in sequences inspired by the Istrian climate, paired with top wines from our walk-in wine cellar, will satisfy even the most demanding connoisseurs of fine cuisine. stand out from San Canzian Village & Hotel. In San Canziano, they are aware that in addition to top-quality, local, and possibly organic food, the most important ingredient for the success of a restaurant is a top team. It is for this reason that the important star of the Croatian culinary scene, the chef, has taken over the important function of chef Mario Mandarić, who has so far been a chef at the Roxanich Wine & Heritage Hotel in Motovun. The natural surroundings of the outdoor pool with panoramic views of the olive groves and vineyards provide guests with an ideal atmosphere to enjoy and relax with the soothing sounds of nature. A top restaurant and certainly one of the best wine cellars in Croatia make San Canzian Village & Hotel a top gastronomic destination. The cooperation with the prestigious Zagreb restaurant Noel, the holder of the Michelin star, resulted in top restaurant and bar facilities in the hotel itself and a clearly defined, high gastronomic offer. But after the “incident” in August 2019 with the then chef of San Canziano, the owners decided in the New 2020 year to take full control of the entire offer. The most important thing is that San Canzian Village & Hotel will continue to offer top service in every segment, including a high gastronomic offer.

PORT AU PRINCE, Haiti, CMC – The Haitian Conference of Religious (CHR) has announced plans for a “national silent march” across the country on Tuesday as it warned of the “unprecedented humanitarian crisis” as opposition forces demand the resignation of President Jovenel Moise.In a statement, the CHR said that it has taken note of the “unprecedented humanitarian crisis in which the country is in the process of tipping over” and the situation “is the result of a much deeper crisis affecting the very foundations of our coexistence in its political, economic, social and religious dimensions”.It has also been critical of the “total bankruptcy of our republican institutions – the executive, the legislature and the judiciary – and the responsibility of our political, intellectual and economic elites in the deterioration of the situation”.The religious group said, as a result, it was calling “on the conscience of everyone, especially the head of the executive power to take note of the seriousness of the hour and make a wise decision for Haiti accordingly.“Due to the insensitivity and indifference of different political actors to the future of the country, because of the general climate of insecurity, we find ourselves obliged to keep the doors of our institutions closed. Until a happy outcome of the crisis is found in the best time,” it said.The CHR said that at a time when Pope Francis invites “us in his prayer to be witnesses of the Gospel, courageous and ardent so that the mission entrusted to the Church, we decide to make two symbolic gestures but very significant“We are in solidarity with the victims of this crisis that has already lasted too long, by donating blood to the Haitian Red Cross, visit of hospitals for the delivery of the product of our collection of drugs and medical equipment.“In deep communion and in permanent solidarity with our suffering people, we will walk in silence from 9:00 am on Tuesday, October 22, 2019, in all major cities of the country to pray, celebrate our faith and implore Divine graces on our country and our people.“We will go from the church of Christ the King to go the sanctuary of Our Lady of Perpetual Help at Bel-Air and finish with a Eucharistic celebration to be presided over by our Archbishop.“We invite the clergy of our ten dioceses and the faithful Catholics, members of all other religious denominations, all socio-professional sectors, all men and women of goodwill to join us in raising the cry of our pains,” the CHR said in its statement.Meanwhile, teachers are expected to stay away from classes on Monday as their unions urge them to participate “in a peaceful march…to demand the resignation of the Head of State and the reopening of schools”.The political and economic crisis in Haiti was triggered by the publication in January 2019 of a report on the Venezuela-funded PetroCaribe Oil initiative, under which Caracas provided oil and other petroleum products to Haiti under a preferential agreement.Moise, who came to power in 2017, has denied any wrongdoing and has named former prime minister Evans Paul to head a team that would hold discussions with all stakeholders to discuss a way forward.Moise has urged Haitians to “identify their real enemies’ and again warned that the system which deprives the country of developing is alive and well in the country.“The system has the capacity to regenerate each time. The people must be able to identify their real enemies,” he said last week, adding “this system that generates misery, poverty, exclusion, has come to an end and we must work together to prevent it from regenerating”.Last week, CARICOM said it was “deeply concerned” over the protracted political crisis in Haiti and that it is still awaiting a response from President Moise for a good offices Prime Ministerial delegation to visit.The decision to send a delegation comprising, CARICOM Chairman and St. Lucia Prime Minister Allen Chastanet, Jamaica’s Prime Minister Andrew Holness and the Bahamas Prime Minister Dr. Hubert Minnis had been taken at the CARICOM Summit held in St. Lucia in July this year.
