Description

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday cottage in Podpeč

The small house made of stone of granny Maria is located in the small carsic village of Podpeč, in the slovenian Istria. Built in the XV century under the Kraški rob and renewed in 2000.

In her three rooms there is enough space up to four persons, in a perfect environment for the lovers of beauty, nature and culture of our ancestors.

The quietness, the vegetation and the flowers surround this "sleeping beauty".

Furnished with care in an old way (poor art) with handmade pieces coming from different places we love (Istria, Slovenia, Bosnia, Serbia, Sicily,...); the combination of modern and restored objects make it comfortable and nifty.

The big garden, equipped with chairs, table and sunbeds is perfect to enjoy a good meal or just relax.

At your arrival we use to welcome you with a typical meal, fruit and biological wine we produce.

If you decide to have also the breakfast, it is very rich and includes honey, juices, jams and other products produced by us and there is also the possibility to agree what to get depending on your wishes.

Unusual but charming

  • 5 of 5

A property with a lot of history and character. Wonderful welcome from Neva and Alfio with a delicious supper on our first night. The gardens were fascinating with a wide range of herbs, vegetables and flowers - to which were encouraged to help ourselves. Neva is a wonderful host who is proud of her village and heritage which she is keen to share.

She is very much involved with village life and regeneration.

The accomodation is quirky but comfortable. It is near a railway line but we were not disturbed.

Overall a peaceful rural environment

  • 5 of 5

"The landlords were a truly lovely couple who offered us lots of care and attention; they supplied us with home-grown vegetables and fruits and guided us where to go and what to see. We thoroughly enjoyed a hiking tour with them where we learned about vegetation, herbs etc. We couldn''t have felt more at home and are looking forward to going again. The style of the small house is very personal and full of character and a lot of attention was given to detail. we enjoyed the little terrace and garden which despite a hot summer was beautifully green."

  • 5 of 5

"The house was nice, clean, and in a quiet area. It is in a rural environment but very close to the city and to the sea. It is so well placed, that you can spend one day visiting coast villages, reserve another one just for walking and visiting beautiful churches and another one going to Ljubiana. Italy, Croatia and Slovenia are merged here. And of course, you can enjoy "real vegetables and fruits", not the ones that are sold in common supermarkets. Forget about TV, radio or other telecommunications here. The house is just for relaxing and to forget about our daily lifes. It is small, but cute and make you feel confortable. And the hosts are great. Fully recommended."

  • 5 of 5

"I highly recommend the stay in this country cottage to the one who is looking for special place, restful ambient and quiet corner. This is extraordinary place with magic atmosphere at "the end of the word". But with very good access to a lot of interesting places of Slovenia as well as see side. Hospitable and friendly owners make the stay unforgettable."

Ein unvergleichliches Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren zehn Tage in dem wundervoll restaurierten Landhaus beherbergt und es fiel uns noch nie so schwer, von einem Urlaubsort abzureisen.

Neva und Alfio haben dieses Haus mit so viel Liebe hergerichtet, dass man schon einen ganzen Tag damit verbringen kann, Haus und Garten zu entdecken.

Die Unterkunft liegt fernab von Trubel und Pauschaltourismus und dennoch sind alle touristischen Ziele - Adriaküste, Istrien, Ljubljana, Triest, Bled etc., schnell mit dem Auto erreichbar. Jeden Abend aber waren wir überglücklich, in unser fast heimatlich gewordenes Haus heimzukehren. Oft überraschte uns Neva mit selbst zubereiteten Köstlichkeiten, andernfalls genossen wir frischen Salat, Kräuter und Früchte aus dem Garten.

Die Gegend und Unterkunft sind perfekt für all jene, die Aktivurlaub - anspruchsvolle Wander- und Mountainbiketouren sowie Kletterrouten - und/oder Ruhe und Abstand von Stress und Hektik des Alltags suchen sowie die Natur, warmherzige Menschen und gutes Essen lieben :-)

Wir jedenfalls kommen wieder! Danke an Neva, Alfio & Marco

Little Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed there with our baby (10 months) and had a wonderful time. We were warmly welcomed by Neva and Alfio with fruits, cheese and fresh bread.

The house is equipped with everything you need and it is absolutely clean. It's very nicely done up with a lot of love from the owners. We loved spending time outside in the beautiful garden which surrounds the house. From there you have a great view over the valley and the coast.

We enjoyed a lot to stay there and think often about the great time and the special atmosphere of the house and the hospitality of Neva and Alfio.

Location

Nearest Airport
50 Kilometres
Nearest Beach
20 Kilometres
Car: necessary

From the A1 highway Koper-Ljubljana take the exit Črni Kal towards Črni Kal (road 208), you cross the village and after 500 m take a left turn towards Hrastovlje. After 500 m take another left turn (signs for Podpeč, road 264) and just following this road uphill you end up in the village after 4 km.

Podpeč is a small carsic village under the Kraški rob at about 300 m above sea level, it has a great view on both the gulfs of Trieste and Koper.

Once on the border between the maritime republic of Venice and the Asburgic empire has a tower built in the XV century used as watchtower during the turkish invasions.

In the surroundings there are many villages with a rich cultural heritage, as Hrastovlje, Kubed, Zanigrad, Socerb.

The Kraški rob is the natural border between the costal area and the hinterland and has a unique climate, flora and wildlife.

While walking it is easy to find curative, alpine and mediterranean plants.

The carsic area has many caves and world famous walls for climbing (Osp, Črni Kal).

Podpeč is a great starting point to visit Slovenia (Ljubljana, Postumia e Škocjan caves, Lipica, Portorose), Italy (Trieste, Venezia) and Croazia.
