In the heart of Slovenian Istria, just a 15-minute drive away form Koper town centre, you can experience something unique by taking a break and spending some time in the Holiday houses of Slovenian Istria. The houses are located in the midst of a vineyard and offer a magnificent view over the Koper/Trieste Bay. The houses are built in an architectural style typical of Istria and furnished with authentic furniture. Guests have the opportunity to gather herbs, fruits and vegetables that can be found in front of each of the three houses. They also have a fireplace available, ideal for socializing in the evenings along with a nice glass of the local Refošk wine. Each of the houses also reveals the history of Slovenian Istria as well as the stories of the local Šavrinke women.
The project Houses of Slovenian Istria received an award at the MOK Idea Development Competition 2011 for the Best Innovative Project Generator under the auspices of the Slovenian Tourist Board.
