An old and charming two bedroom stone house has been lovingly restored by its Slovenian owners, who fell in love with the view of the rolling Mediterranean countryside and the peace of an old hilltop village. The villa exudes Mediterranean charm, with its old stone façade, red roof and blue wooden shutters. Olives, vineyards and the scent of lavender are the main themes of this little villa, with a lovely garden and a beautiful swimming pool. The owners will provide meals on request, including much of their home grown organic produce.
The villa is within easy reach of good restaurants and a prefect base from where to explore the amazing Slovenian countryside, some world-class medieval art, excellent wineries, olive farms, and the seaside with a sandy beach of Portoroz, and the Venetian-looking towns of Piran, Izola and Koper, the coastal towns with beaches, restaurants, seaside cafes, shops and vibrant nightlife. These are just 30 min drive away from the villa. The villa is sensitively renovated with all modern comforts as well, such as air-conditioning and underfloor heating. It is arranged on two floors. It has an authentic rustic feel inside, with rough walls, terracotta or wood floors and an open stone fireplace.
The villa has an open plan sitting/dining room, with an adjacent kitchen behind a stone archway. The white kitchen is a modern take on the country kitchen and is well equipped with a fridge/freezer, cooker and hob, dishwasher, microwave, toaster, kettle and a coffee machine. There is a good range of cooking utensils, plates, cutlery and glassware. The whole ground floor is tiled with country style terracotta tiles and there is a rustic stone fireplace in the sitting area, which has a modern comfortable L-shaped leather sofa and a satellite TV/DVD player. There is also an antique dining table which seats five people comfortably.
A wooden staircase leads from the sitting room to the first floor where there are two cosy double bedrooms, with charming countryside views. The bedrooms have wood floorings and antique country beds with new mattresses and wardrobes. One of the bedrooms has a double bed and the other has twin beds + single bed. The bedrooms share a nice new bathroom which has two basins, a shower cubicle and quality fittings. All bed linen and bathroom towels are provided.
Another wonderful feature of this villa is its large private garden, floating above the olive groves and vineyards. It has an 8 x 4 metre swimming pool, from which you get wonderful green vistas and a distant glimpse of the Adriatic sea. By the pool is a pool house which is also a second bathroom with a WC and shower and a laundry room with a washing machine. You will be sunbathing on a green lawn, among the colourful oleander bushes, lavender and a very old gnarled olive tree. Sun loungers and umbrellas are provided. A nice barbecue and an outdoor dining table there for al-fresco dining, and more views!
