Fantastic...

5 of 5
We enjoyed a fantastic 2 weeks in this beautifull estate. The location and the surroundings of the house are breathtaking. (the views, the silence, the stars at evening,...). There is so much to do and see in the region :Maribor, Ptuj, Celje, Jeruzalem, Ljublijana ,... . The house is decorated with a great taste and well equipped for a 2 family-vacation. It was very clean on our day of arrival. The owners are very helpfull. Thx

Great holiday house. Lovely area and country. Everything you could need is there. The pool is great. The owner keeps you well informed before travelling. Grew at support from neighbours who look after the house. Amazing holiday
