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 2 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.
You can find a beach in Portorož (a more upmarket resort), Piran (an old picturesque town with church on the cliff which you can see from the house), Strunjan (tourist resort) and Izola (old fishermen town with a soul).
The nearest beach is Strunjan. The bay which you see from the house is Strunjan bay.
If you have more time, you can visit also Sečovlje saline museum, forma viva in Seča, ... For more information I left some brochures.
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 !
L'accueil de Primoz fut chaleureux. Le lieu est idéal pour visiter cette partie de l'Istrie. Le studio est calme, bien équipé. Le jardin est agréable est la vue est en effet "beautiful". A recommander chaudement !!
Primoz and his mother was perfect hosts and the house under the pine the perfect place to visit piran, izola and all slovenian coast!!! It is highly recommanded if you want to be in a quiet place at 10 minutes from the sea. Everything was in the fridge for breakfast and we could taste boja's wine!!!
A great and nice week in this house!!
Ein sehr schönes und geräumiges Appartement mit einem wunderbaren Garten. Wir haben die Stille, den Sonnenuntergang und die Fernsicht auf die Küste sehr genossen. Für alle die Ruhe suchen und dem Trubel entfliehen möchten, ist diese Unterkunft genau das Richtige. Primoz und seine Mutter, die übrigens hervorragend deutsch spricht, waren freundlich und hilfsbereit. Und aufgrund der sehr detaillierten Wegbeschreibung hatten wir auch keinerlei Mühe die Unterkunft zu finden. Wir hatten übrigens kein Problem mit Mücken.
Un séjour très agréable dans une petite maison de rêve. La vue est magnifique et l'on peut admirer le couche de soleil sur la mer. Tout était bien prévu pour notre arrivée. Une maison bien équipée avec tout ce qu'il faut pour un petit déjeuner. Primoz est un hôte très accueillant, nous avons pu rencontrer sa famille.
