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.

This is our family apartment.
Check-in and Checkout times are generally flexible, but I would prefer between 1 and 5 PM.
Our apartment is your apartment, so please treat it with respect as if it were your own. (E.g. for Teflon pots use only wood or plastic spoons.)
Please clean up and pick up after yourself.
We expect that the apartment door be kept locked when you are absent.
Being a family apartment, we do not allow smoking and pets.
To keep our costs down (and pass those savings on to maintenance of apartment) we kindly ask that you switch off lights and the A/C or heating when its not in use or leaving the house. Mother nature thanks you too.
Thank you for not flushing anything but the toilet paper we provide down the toilets (please place sanitary napkins, wet-wipes, cotton-balls, etc. in the rubbish bin (in the kitchen). We simply want to ensure you have a royal flush kind of holiday :)
If the rubbish bin is full, please empty it into the big bin in the corner of the street. In the kitchen are plastic bags for lining a bin.
Although we thoroughly clean between guests, we expect that on the last day of your stay the kitchen is wiped down and any dishes used are cleaned and put away. Dirty towels and bed linen shall be placed in in a heap on the floor in apartment. It helps us get through our cleaning process quicker and allows us to keep cleaning costs down for you and future guests.
We understand that accidents happen. But we do ask that you please let us know when they do. Chances are we can fix them as effortlessly as possible.
But other than that, just have a great time and we'll be more than happy to assist you.
Best regards, Primož, Renata

I have finished math university, but for three decades I was working as counselor and life-couch when someone feels stuck in life. I am very good at detecting my clients inner feelings and I can quickly broaden their understanding and reorient them to find the way out.
I am also teaching stress management and relaxation methods in Vocational College for Catering and Tourism Maribor and I am math tutor.
