A wonderful visit to Trieste area

  • 5 of 5

We are a Canadian family of four who were staying in the house for 9 days. The house is comfortable and neat. Even though the outside day temperature was 30-32 C, the thick house walls, ceramic ground floor and traditional shutters kept the inside temperature not higher than 25. We liked the garden and large balconies. The grocery shop in the closest small town (5 minutes drive) was surprisingly good with lots of high quality food and fresh produce. A clear majority of food in the store was Italian made and grown which made it yet more appealing. We cooked a lot and the kitchen in the house was suitable for this with a large window letting lots of light in. The house location allowed us to be on the beach as often as we wished, including the Trieste area and the Slovenian more secluded beaches. We also had an easy trip (about 1-hour drive) to magical Venice and picturesque Ljubljana. The village is small and unpretentious, and very quiet which we believe complimented very well the hustle and bustle of beautiful Trieste. The Grotto Gigante is walking distance away and worth a visit. Romano is a generous host, knowledgeable of surroundings and a pleasant talker.

Sehr geräumiges Haus mit nettem Garten und schöner Terrasse, nur ca. 15 Minuten von Triest entfernt (Auto). Der Besitzer war sehr hilfsbereit und hatte gute Tipps für unseren Aufenthalt.

More than wonderful :)

  • 5 of 5

The house was really comfortable for us (4 adults and 3 children under 5 years). The children loved the garden, the big terrace and the toys in the house. The house is very family-friendly equipped.

Romano was a great host - very flexible, very punctual, very nice and relaxed. He gave us all the information we needed.

Trieste and the surrounding area is really great - beach, culture, nature, mountains, city and really nice people.

Thank you for the nice stay in your house, Romano.

sul Carso con sei nipoti

  • 5 of 5

Siamo due nonni, partiti da Milano con due gemelle figlie di nostro figlio. Abbiamo scelto Borgo Grotta del Gigante per poter trascorrere le vacanze vicino a mia figlia che abita a Villa Opicina e ha quattro figli. La casa era bella, ben tenuta con ampi spazi sia interni (quattro camere da letto) che esterni (un bellissimo giardino), così grazie alla disponibilita e gentilezza di Romano (il proprietario) abbiamo ospitato anche gli altri quattro nipoti.

Abbiamo goduto del mare, scendendo a Sistiana (15 minuti), visitato la città di Trieste, la grotta del Gigante (a pochi passi dalla casa) con gite oltre confine (Postumia e San Canziano) e gustato dell'ottimo pesce a Muggia. Per gli acquisti ci sono supermercati nella vicina Villa Opicina e a pochi passi un'azienda agricola (vino, verdure, uova, formaggi etc.)

Credo che tornerò anche fuori stagione, ho apprezzato la gentilezza e la piena disponibiltà del proprietario per qualsiasi richiesta e/o problema.

Vacanze con nipoti l seguito

  • 5 of 5

siamo nonni e abbiamo portato in vacanza due nipotine da Milano e qui si sono aggiunti altri quattro nipoti grazie alla disponibilità e gentilezza di Romano che ci ha messo a disposizione una casa spaziosa sia all'interno che all'esterno. Per i sei nipoti (dai tre ai 14 anni) e stata una vacanza fantastica ed indimenticabile abitando a 450 Km di distanza e ritrovandosi solo per le festività natalizie. Ottimi ambienti e pulizia. Possibilità di trascorrere i pomeriggi al mare (Sistiana) e visita alla Grotta del Gigante, al Castello di San Giusto a Trieste e gite in Slovenia.
