A charming old country house situated on top of a hill overlooking Portorož bay surrounded by vineyards, olive trees, rose bushes, cherry trees and plenty of other Mediterranean plants.
The room with an en-suite is located in the extension of the house under an old pine tree.
The room is simple, but quaint. It has an old fireplace and a small kitchen.
Please note the double bed is elevated and requires a use of a leader. A third bed could be placed in the room upon request and subject to additional charge.
This apartment is situated on an excellent location for exploring the Istra region and also to pop for a quick visit of the Kras region. We would advise our guests to rent a car or ensure they have their own way of transport.
The nearest beach is 10-15 minutes drive away and 30-40min walking distance.
Under the Pine Tree apartment is a charming, relaxing place to stay with breathtaking views and a lot of Istrian character.
Please note minimum stay is 3 nights.
Please feel at home and feel free to pluck the figs if they are ripe enough.
If you step out through the kitchen doors and go behind the cypress tress you will find some nice shade.
Internet is mobile broadband and the speed is limited.

An amazing place. We stayed here 4 nights and it felt like home. The house has absolutely everything you could want. Nothing was missing or not available. The fridge was stocked when we arrived (a pleasant surprise) and Primoz was welcoming and great at communicating. The garden is sublime and the view and the smells of the pine trees are gorgeous. I highly recommend this home away from home!
Alles war perfekt. Tolle Unterkunft, toller Ort zum entspannen!
Primož gab uns tolle Tipps bzgl. Sehenswürdigkeiten, Strand usw.
Auf alle Fälle empfehlenswert!!!
Hier muss man einfach mit dem Wort TOP starten.
Wir wurden von Primož und seiner Mutter aller herzlichst empfangen. Er hat uns die Wohnung vorgestellt, in alles eingewiesen und einen „gefüllten“ Kühlschrank gezeigt.
Es war alles was man für einen ersten Snack und ein erstes Frühstück benötigt liebevoll hergerichtet.
Der ganze, riesige, Garten nebst den vollen Obstbäumen stand uns zur Verfügung.
Die Beschreibung der Wohnung im Internet war ebenfalls perfekt. Es hat einfach alles gepasst. Primož spricht sehr gut Englisch und besser Deutsch als er zugibt :-) Seine Mutter spricht sogar sehr gut Deutsch.
Die Wohnung ist mit dem Auto ca. 10 Minuten, zu Fuß ca. 45min von Izola entfernt. Also man ist ratz fatz im Geschehen, oder aber man kann eine himmlische Ruhe, mit einer noch himmlischeren Aussicht genießen.
Zusammengefasst: Wir kommen wieder!!!
Vielen Dank für Alles.
Primoz has a really nice little cottage, situated 1km away from the small town Izola. We had a great time, especially enjoyed cozy evening in front of the chimney.
The flat is well equipped, Primoz even provided some food for us so that we felt very welcomed there.
From this place you can do some nice walks to Izola, Piran and Portoroz. If you are looking for calm place and want to relax for a couple of days, this is the perfect place to do so.
We spent 7 days under the pine tree and enjoyed every single one of it. Primoz was very friendly and helpful, same for his mother who lives in the house nearby. The appartement is beautiful with a large garden, perfect for breakfast/luch/dinner outside, the kitchen offers everything you need to cook.
You need a car for shopping/trips but you will enjoy the quiet house and the beautiful sorroundings.
Literarly HEAVEN:) on the top of the hill, between olive and figue trees, in the middle of vineyards, with a view on the Adriatic sea... you can stay there and don't have to move at all or you can discover each day new wonders around you:) the place itself prepared for the first option - everything is there and even if you have a hole in your sock thre is even a proper tool set to repaire it:) the desciption how to get to your destination is marvelous - mind that THE STATEMENT THAT THE ROAD IS ASCENDING means that it feels as if you were in the mountains:) while it's raining it can be really slippy for your car to reach the hill... nevertheless it'worth to be patient and not to give up while trying to get there:) thank you Primoz for the sincere welcome, for the fruits, bread and all we needed to survive till the next day:) thank you very very much:) will come again:)
"Beyond the pines" is a little paradise. So beautiful place. Primoz is really sympathic, you can ask him all what you need. If you are with car you will be quicly in Piran (fantastic) and Izola (to have a bath in the Adriatic). I really recommend Primoz house if you do not want to be in the center of the city with other tourists !
