First aired on the 14th December, BBC viewers discovered how presenters Monica Galetti and Giles Coren head to Croatia to go behind the scenes at the Grand Park, an ultra-modern glass fronted hotel overlooking the historic Croatian town of Rovinj on the Istrian coastline.

They learn from the hotel staff how the hotel was built to work in harmony with the local community and culture, providing a luxury destination for tourists. Giles explores a hidden art gallery deep inside the hotel structure and prunes a selection of the many thousands of plants that frame the view of the old town, while Monica gets to grips with how to clean Europe’s biggest single glass window and together, they go truffle hunting with dogs in the Istrian landscape.

The episode will be available in the UK on BBC Two and BBC IPLAYER, from 14th December at 20.00hrs.
