The Principovac summer residence of the aristocratic Odescalchi family, built in 1864, is located near Ilok, on a hill, which offers a beautiful view of vineyards, orchards, the town of Ilok and the Danube, as well as Srijem, and Backa in neighbouring Serbia. This lovely place, which also offers several accommodation units and a few sports grounds (for tennis, volleyball, badminton, as well as a small golf course), is a perfect place for team building activities, and wedding dinners alike. The property also houses a restaurant with a gorgeous outdoor terrace and a panoramic elevator inside the castle will take you to the small observation platform to further enjoy the great view. The menu features interesting dishes, which are a mix of local, autochthonous ingredients prepared in a modern way. We decided on a special menu, namely the freshly made and well seasoned fish cakes and a variation of homemade pasta with cracklings and stewed cabbage. We also ordered traditionally prepared vineyard snails, served on rock salt, and for the main course, we chose the tender chicken breast in Grasevina wine, and pork cutlets “vine dresser” style served with soft semolina dumplings. Naturally, the dishes were paired with the famous Ilok graševina from the surrounding vineyards, while the desserts, which are also a combination of traditional and modern, such as honeycomb in vanilla sauce and poppy seeds, with their globally famous Traminac.
