Roman & Kathi Graf purchased this apartment in 2004
We discovered this gem on one of our travels and fell in love with Piran - it got under our skin and we couldn't let go. We loved the landscape - vineyards and olive groves sloping down to the sea and dotted with cypress trees and red tiled rooftops. The old charm of Piran pulled at us - the quiet, cobbled streets, the campanele with the archangel Michael on top of the spire, and the Baroque squares mixed with Venetian architecture. We were drawn to the quiet old fishing village where the people were friendly and the local food fresh and delicious.
We fell in love with our apartment mostly because it looks onto the marina and sea - and we saw a lot of potential! It was unlike any other apartment we had seen - it is big and spacious and all on one level. The windows are old portholes from ships and add character and unique views along the coast and to the village. We also loved that fact that it is just before the center of town, so walking down to the beach or to the shops and restaurants is easy.
From our drive into Piran to stepping into the villa, this is exactly how I hoped our European vacation would begin. Kathi, the owner, was so helpful before our trip to the end. All the instructions were so informatative. We had a family of 8 staying at the villa from ages 9-75. There was so much space and comfort for all. It had everything we needed from 4 comfortable bedrooms, to a large family room with the best couch ever. Every day we walk downstairs to the bakery to get fresh donuts for breakfast. At night, we would head to the huge rooftop patio to watch the sunset for a glass of wine. The villa is in walking distance to everything...shops, restaurants, bars, tons of gelato stands. Coming from the United States, we really appreciated the space and luxury of all the amenities of the apartment including a dishwasher, washer, awesome showers, etc. Thanks, Kathi! We hope to visit again soon.

This property is well maintained and spacious.
Wow....from the grapes hanging over the entry way to the views from the upstairs deck....this home is AMAZING!!!! Piran is such a wonderful little town right on the water and we could see all of it from this "penthouse"...not to mention you can see Italy and Crotia too!! The beds are comfortable, the large dining room table is the perfect place to share your adventures of the day (or the day to come), get cozy on the couch by the fireplace, watch the sunset into the ocean from the upstairs deck, the wifi is strong if you need to take care of business....you will be in need of nothing when you stay here!!! It is clearly well cared for, spacious, clean and has incredible energy. It is the perfect home away from home....can't wait to come back!!!!
This house was outstanding for so many reasons. It has ample room in the living space and the bedrooms are comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and a reasonable size. Everything worked find. The upper deck, with its outstanding view of the sea, is EXCELLENT for sunsets or just relaxing. The house is right on the edge of the town and close to everything you need. You park about 500 meters up the road, but that is just part of the Piran experience. We had no problem with that at all. The bus runs back and forth all day and stops right out front.
We barbecued one night and enjoyed home cooked meals several nights. The whole house is well maintained, clean and was very suitable for our family. The owners were extremely responsive to our every need from the moment we began considering this location to the day we left. Actually, they helped us with locating good restaurants in Rome nearly a month after we left Piran. Very helpful.
We have been renting homes from VRBO for over 15 years and this is one of our favorite to date. We enjoyed Piran so much. It's a great little town. During the week we were there our girls made friends and hung out with them on the town square nearly every night. PIran was just the right size for us with plenty of things to do in the surrounding areas (Skocjan caves, visiting Ljubljana, Lipizanner horses, wine country). If you are considering the Northern Istrian Peninsula as a destination DO NOT hesitate to rent this home. It's great!
Cannot possibly describe how perfect this flat in Piran is. It is evident from the moment you walk through the front door that the owners take great pride in and care of their property - making your experience nothing short of perfect. The beds and linens are of finest quality. Not only is this flat spacious and tastefully decorated/furnished, it is in an ideal location making walking wherever you could possibly want to go very easy. Explore the town, the shops, the Church and Bell Tower, enjoy delicious local food along the boardwalk while you watch the sea, swim, sunbathe, sail, kayak, catch a ferry to Venice, visit neighboring Portoroz. The possibilities are only limited by your imagination. Reaching the flat requires climbing a few stairs but the reward for a small amount of effort is an incomparable view of Piran and the Adriatic sea. Sitting on the terrace with a beer watching the sunset you will find yourself looking at your calendar trying to figure out when you can come back. Thank you for sharing your lovely home with us!
Piran is a quaint Venetian fishing village on the Istrian Coast between Italy and Croatia. The rooftop terrace on the apartment looks out onto the Adriatic Sea and across the sea to Venice and the Italian Alps beyond. Fun day trips include wine tasting in Croatia, hiking and swimming in nearby nature reserves, the old stone towns of Groznjan, Rovinj and Motovun, a day in Trieste where you can also enjoy a romantic evening dining on fine Italian cuisine and watch classical performances. There is a ferry service from Piran to Venice that runs from May through September departing early in the morning and returning in the evening. You can choose to spend the day in Venice or stay overnight in this lovely seafront city. Not only is Slovenia known for the Lipizzan horses and Postojna Caves, but also for their small, select wineries where you can enjoy a day of wine tasting and food pairing.
Slovenia is yet to be discovered - river rafting, fishing, hiking, bicycling with winter sports in the Alps are greeted by warm friendly people to make it a memorable holiday.
