Villa Sistiana is situated on the edge of the quiet, traditional stone Karst village of Sela na Krasu on the edge of the Karst plateau looking down over the Gulf of Trieste. Just a couple of kilometres from the Italian border and 10 kms to Adriatic coast itself, the location offers a wealth of things to do over the border from the beautiful Castle at Duino (12km) to the lovely Doberdo + Pietrarossa Lakes & nature reserves (8km), not countless opportunities for swimming in the lovely Gulf of Trieste. Back to the Slovenian side of the border, the Karst is a region with a wine growing heritage that goes back two millennia and home to the celebrated Teran red mentioned as far back as Roman times and whose name comes from the typical local "Terra Rossa" or "red earth". It is also home to Slovenia's best prosciutto or "pršut" in Slovene and excellent cheeses and other local gastronomic specialities. Dotted with charming stone hilltop villages and criss-crossed with some wonderful walking and biking trails, and countless wineries and excellent restaurants the region is fascinating for exploring. It also offers amongst its highlights the spectacular Unesco protected Skocjanske Jame cave system, which features one of the worlds deepest underground canyons, the equally impressive Postojna Caves and the world famouse Lipica stud - home of the Lippizaner breed made famous by the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and also offering excellent golf. If this is not enough, then the fascinating and beautiful city of Trieste is just 30 minutes drive away, historic Grado is just 45 minutes drive away and Venice itself is just 90 minutes. The Slovenian Adriatic and its beautiful Venetian town of Piran are an hours drive and Ljubljana, Slovenia's charming capital is 90 minutes, so you really are spoilt for choice for things to do and see.
