Interaction with Guests
I could say we interact with guests right enough. Sometimes our guests are wandering around all the time, sometimes they stay in and hang out with us.
Our house is in the center of Koper - Capodistria, in the old part, just a minute walk away from the sea. We have a free entry public beach. In the area nearby there is a supermarket, the open market, several bars, restaurants, shops, a free public parking, a bus and a taxi station. The old town is a quiet neighborhood, completely safe for late night arrivals, even if you're heading home at 3 in the morning.
Note that the free public parking is a large are just 2 min walking away, right next to the market place. We suggest to drive to the house to drop off the bags and park on the free parking. Only residents are allowed to park inside the old town.
The bus and taxi station is 2 min walking away from the house and if you need transport to/from train station or airport let us know. Local buses pass every 15 min.
If you would like to go abroad perhaps the best way is to go to the central bus/train station.
Koper is an excellent starting point: 20 min away is Trieste - capital of coffee, 30 min to Lipica's lipizzaner white horses, 45 min Postojna and Skocjan caves, 45 min Pula (Cro) with its Roman arena, 1hr to Ljubljana - capital of Slovenia and 1,5 hours to Venice.
Other Things to Note
PARKING - Note that the "free public parking" is in a large area right next to the market place and near the sea, only 3 minutes from the house. We suggest to drive to the house just to drop off the bags and leave the car in the parking free area. The parking in the old part is limited to residents with permits.
SEASONAL TIPS - The swimming season is from June to September but some tough guys bath also in May and October ;) The access to the town's beach is free and there is a bar, coffee/pastry shop and playhouses for children right on the spot.
There is a lot of cycling to do around the coast or explore the inside of Istra or the Kras and perhaps we can arrange some bikes if you want to.
