About the property

Wine Estate on a private hill surrounded by vineyards & exquisite views

This is a stunning 100 year old wine estate that was lovingly renovated in 2008 into a first class country house. This 12 acres estate includes a large villa with an oak barn to complete the rural picture. This is a luxury property brimming with Central European character. It is set in 14 acres of winding vines, still used to produce local white wines of regional repute. Entering through the double oak doors into the vast living area exposes the airy 60 sq m. living room that remains of double height with a wooden staircase hugging its edge and leading to a minstrel’s gallery. The double panoramic doors lead out to a furnished south facing decking area of 25sqm straddling over the vine terraces below. Wooden balconies run around the first floor offering exquisite views. With a mixture of original features, antique furniture and modern technology, this comfortable home can easily accommodate 2 families. The closest neighbour is 500m away, the nearest supermarket 5 minutes drive away

Nearest Cities Worth Visiting: Ptuj is the oldest city in Slovenia and was first recorded as a Roman settlement. This small and picturesque town is only 10 minutes drive away, handy for sightseeing as well as shopping. Ptuj castle located on the hill in the middle of the town is now a museum, exhibiting a variety of local antique artifacts: paintings, pictures, masks, furniture instruments, weapons and armor. Visit is highly recommended. Graz, ex. European Capital of Culture is one of the most beautiful towns in Austria. A day trip to Graz can be as much about shopping as dining, or culture. A must see! Once on the way, look at the tourist guide for Osteria available in the house and consider visiting agro-tourist farms for some fine local cuisine.

A day-trip to the capital makes a delightful destination offering shopping, art galleries, and a variety of bars and restaurants along the Ljubljanica River.

It is a great place for children and adults alike. Details of many other spas are given in the tourists guides provided in Hisa Vina. Slovenia is well known for its beautiful mountains and endless trekking routes. Those who like dramatic Alpine scenery could venture to Pohorje, Savinjska dolina, or the Kamniske Alps. Even more dramatic are the Julian Alps and the valley of Trenta in the north west of Slovenia. Those who prefer gentler rolling hills and wine-growing areas can explore the immediate surroundings of Haloze hills. See the guides and maps provided in Hisa Vina for specific details. A comprehensive list of recommended restaurants in the wider area is available at the property.

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

If I could give 6 stars I would. We were very, very impressed, family of 8 adults. The drive up, the arrival, the wow factor kicked right in. There was not a single thing missed during our two week stay. In the house, around the house. We visited as much as we could, loved Ljubljana, Maribor and Ptuj. The wine tasting was also much fun. The only thing we thought could be a little less was the weather... 35 degrees Celsius is a bit hot for hikes. So thank you for letting us stay in this beautiful house.

Sehr schöner Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren in den letzten Sommerferien mit 2 Familien und insgesamt 5 Kindern in diesem wunderschönen Haus.

Das Haus ist, wie auf den Bildern dargestellt, traumhaft inmitten von Weinbergen gelegen. Die Ausstattung ist top und der Vermieter sehr nett und hilfsbereit.

Wenn man Ruhe sucht, dann ist man hier genau richtig.

Ein absoluter Tip ist der Wein vom direkten Nachbarn.

Hisa Vina is a stunning country residence nestling in the wine-growing Haloze hills. It is the perfect location for either relaxing in the lap of semi-remote luxury or exploring the surrounding areas of natural beauty within Slovenia or its neighbours Austria, Croatia and Hungary. The rolling Haloze hills in the Pannonian region of Slovenia were first mentioned in the 15th century under the name of Chalas and Kalosen. The name is supposed to derive from the Latin word Colles meaning vine-growing hills, or from the old Slavic word “halonga” denoting a hilly world. The region is fringed by the rivers Dravinja and Drava and is popular with cyclists, hikers and fishermen alike. The ancient city of Ptuj (easily reached within 15 minutes drive from Hisa Vina) is an architectural chronicle at the crossroads of sunny Italy and the vastness of the Pannonian lowland, Alpine valleys and the expanse of the Balkans. It is the most picturesque town in Slovenia and boasts the richest heritage.

Other Activities: Wine tasting, health spa, local cuisine, town trips

Golf: There is an 18-hole golf course in Ptuj, located 10 min drive from the house. Ptuj golf course (please, do not hesitate to contact owner for link) is regarded as one of the best in the region and was voted the best golf course in Slovenia in 2007. There are a further 4 golf courses within a 60 min drive. The second nearest is located in the vineyards of Slovenske Konjice - Zlati Gric (40 min drive). Others are in Moravske Toplice, Podcetrtek - Olimje, and Rogaska - Jelsingrad. Further details about all the golf courses in the region are available at the property.

Ski: In the winter season, the guests can enjoy skiing at a number of local ski resorts. A car is required to reach the resorts. The nearest ski resort is Pohorje ski area (15 min drive), a host to women's World Cup races. The Pohorje resorts of Areh and Bolfenk have a variety of pistes for both beginners and accomplished skiers. Other ski resorts in the area are Rogla (55 min drive), Golte (1 hour 10 min drive) and Sljeme in Croatia (1 hour 30 min drive). A guide to all local ski resorts is available at the property.
