Lavanda - A unique Slovenia villa with pool


It is one of the greatest mysteries of our job why there are not more villas with pools in Slovenia especially in regions like "Slovenia's Provence" inland from the Adriatic coast. But for the moment there are very few of them which makes Vila Lavanda even more special. A painstakingly renovated and beautifully finished 2 bedroom Istrian stone house located in a quiet hilltop wine and olive growing village with stunning views, lovely pool, well kept gardens and wonderful welcome from its owners.

Vila Lavanda is located in the peaceful stone built hilltop village of Fijeroga, in the beautiful unspoilt countryside circa 15km inland from the Slovenian Adriatic. Surrounded by vineyards and olive groves and with lovely views of the surroundings and with a wide range of organic products and delicious meals available upon request from the owners you hardly need leave the place, however if you do the owners will be able to recommend a number of excellent restaurants in the area and point you in the direction of the highlights of inland Slovenian Istria - the Dragonja valley, the historic murals at Hrastovlje, a huge selection of excellent wineries and a number of sleepy stone hilltop villages where life continues today as it seems to have done for centuries. On the Adriatic coast just a short drive away is one of Slovenia's premier attractions & its most beautiful coastal town - Piran, the bustling family resort of Portoroz & the charming seaside town of Izola which both offer a wide range of things to do and beaches to enjoy the waters of the Adriatic. Further afield, but still in easy day trip distance are the world famous caves at Postojna, golf & the historic Lippizaner stud at Lipica. Slovenia's charming capital Ljubljana is just 90 minutes drive and day trips into Trieste & Venice in Italy or Croatia's beautiful Istrian coast are easily possible.

It is a traditional Istrian stone house with exposed wooden beams and lots of original features, but has been recently renovated with natural materials wherever possible to give modern comforts such as WiFi internet, under floor heating and air conditioning, spacious living areas and a well equipped and practical kitchen - as you would expect from one of Slovenia's best villas with pool. There is a play area for children with the possibility of playing volleyball or badminton.
