With your own private swimming pool, secluded outdoor terrace at Villa Inja, and two excellent restaurants in Korte, you may not find yourself wishing to stray too far from your idyllic holiday home. However, Slovenian Istria is a tiny corner of paradise waiting to be discovered!

Known for its beautiful beaches and rolling green countryside, Slovenian Istria is situated where the rugged Karst edge of the country meets the Adriatic Sea and the beautiful Bay of St. Bartholomew on the Slovenian-Italian border. Hiking enthusiasts will be delighted by the nearby trails, which pass through unspoiled rural villages with stone houses and wonderful coastline views. For history enthusiasts, Kaštelir archaeological site above Korte is one of the largest prehistoric settlements in the Slovenian part of Istria. Near the villa, guests will also find local olive oil producers and winemakers showcasing the very best of the region’s rich gastronomy. Visitors to the Šavrini Hills will be provided with more stunning coastal views and a fascinating glimpse into authentic Istrian life.

For those in need of a complete reset, visit the therapeutic spas and exquisite beaches of cosmopolitan Portorož, only a ten-minute drive away. Here, you can enjoy the soothing effects of both thermal water and seawater. You may even wish to treat yourself to a luxurious massage! Experts are on hand to guide you through your day of pampering at the Shakti-Ayurveda or the Lifeclass Terme Portorož Spa.

The charming seaside town of Izola is not to be missed. Stroll along the marina and wander the old, cobbled alleyways, before a leisurely lunch at one of the town’s excellent restaurants. Izola is best known for its ancient ties to the tradition of fishing, but the nearby countryside also offers visitors the opportunity to visit local farms devoted to olive and fruit growing.

The Sečovlje Salina Nature Park is a cultural gem that introduces visitors to the tradition of salt production within a unique saline landscape. Visit the spa in the northern part of the park, where guests enjoy restorative salt and mud baths, known for boosting circulation and naturally improving the skin.

Strunjan Nature Park, famous for its amazing variety of flora and fauna, is also a short drive away. The park provides fantastic walking trails including a challenging but enjoyable trek to Moon Bay Beach, a dazzling pebble beach with crystal-clear waters. From here, visit the old port town of Piran, often called Slovenia’s most beautiful coastal town, which is said to have flourished with the help of a little salt. Perched upon the tip of the peninsula, Piran’s Cape Madonna is home to incredible underwater biodiversity.

The town of Koper has a distinctly Mediterranean feel and is much admired for its impressive architecture, breathtaking views and culinary delights. This is the perfect place to indulge in a day of watersports on the Adriatic coastline before returning to your tranquil villa for sunset on the terrace.
