Little Vista House is situated on a quiet street, with wonderful views over rolling hills, vineyards and orchards, on the outskirts of the historic hilltop village of Smartno (St Martin or San Martino in Italian) known for its fortified walls, charming cobbled streets and traditional stone buildings, not to mention fantastic views all the way to the Alps. The wonderful but relatively undiscovered region of Goriska Brda - also known as Slovenia's Tuscany - is dotted with charming tiny stone hilltop villages (of which Smartno is one of the most famous) and criss-crossed with some wonderful walking and biking trails, countless wineries and excellent restaurants. The area is famous for its many wine & cherry themed festivals especially the "Brda & vino" festival held in Smartno itself each Spring - one of the largest wine and culinary events in Brda. Simply prepared dishes have been replaced by original and sophisticated cuisine that goes hand-in-hand with top quality Brda wines. One of the best spots to enjoy the breathtaking 360 °views of the region is the viewing tower in Gonjace (2 km from Smartno). The castle in Dobrovo, which is the region's administrative centre, is almost a perfect square with square turrets on each corner and well worth a visit. The neighbouring Karst region 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 famous Lipica stud - home of the Lippizaner breed made famous by the Spanish Riding School in Vienna and also offering excellent golf. The Italian Adriatic coast and the fascinating and beautiful city of Trieste is just 20km away whilst Venice is 90 minutes by car and the lovely Italian Friuli wine producing region is just a short hop across the border, home to beautiful towns such as Cividale and Udine. It is an hour's drive or so to the Slovenian Adriatic and its beautiful Venetian town of Piran. Ljubljana, Slovenia's charming capital is an 90 min drive away. Day trips into the Slovenian Alps and spectacular Soca Valley are also easily possible with the foothills of the Alps starting in the Kolovrat hills just a few KM north of the Goriska Brda. Let yourself be spoilt for choice with a stay in a wonderful house in an area that offers a vast array of things to see and do for groups of all ages and tastes.

We had a very lovely Holiday at the little House in Šmartno. Especially the terrace is absolutely stunning and even more impressive than on the pictures. The little town is really lovely! There are some very good restaurants which serve homemade food and local wine. Also the close by neighbours were very lovely and even shared their freshly picked grapes with us! All in all we had a really amazing stay at little Vista. The only issue we had was with the parking situation. However the neighbours were very friendly and allowed us to park at their private spots.

The place is lovely, with a fantastic view on the terras, exactly as advertised. Check-in was easy via a key box. We normally don't expect a bottle of wine, but if you put it in the description we were a bit disappointed when there wasn't any. The house is simple and cozy. The beds are great. The terras could use some chairs and a table; we took some furniture from inside to the terras. Overal we had a few very relaxing days and would recommend it. The house as well as this part of Slovenia is very nice

The place was exactly like the pictures! The views are wonderful and the kitchen great for preparing a small meal. Our favorite part was the terrace, it’s a beautiful space the relax with a glass of wine. Check-in was easy and the whole process was great.

Smartno is a wonderfull little village in what is called the Toscany of Slovenia. From the balcony we had a magnificant view over the region. The holiday flat is small (attention: steep stairs) but very charming! 

Great location with a nice view over the valley. Very good value.
