Gorizia house description
The house for short term rentals (minimum 2 weeks) is situated in the charming town of Cormons, at the very centre of the splendid Collio region, renowned world wide for its superb wines, Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon, Friulano (previously called Tocai) and fabulous reds like Refosco, Pignolo, Cabernet, Merlot.
The portion of the house for rent is about 2,500 square feet on two levels. The living area downstairs is open space with living and dining area, a large kitchen and a library-den off kitchen with a table for six.
The courtyard and the covered portico offer some place where to read or relax outdoor. Upstairs there are three spacious bedrooms, two full bathrooms and a covered terrace.
The area offers the best of what Friuli is known and loved for: an unforgettable countryside, Roman antiquities, medieval towns, castles, art, shopping, festivals and concerts, amazing wines, and of course renowned and unknown restaurants that will give great pleasure to those who appreciate the flavors of authentic cuisine.
A day of history and art?
From Cormons you can go visit delightful, culturally vibrant cities like Trieste (50 Km.) Udine (18 Km.) Gorizia (12 Km.) or search for history in Roman Aquileia (35 Km.), a heritage Unesco site, visit the Longobard town of Cividale (12 Km.), or the majestic Napoleon’s former residence, Villa Manin di Passariano, now an important art museum.
A day of Golf?
A golf course is 3 Km. from the house, at the Castle of Spessa, a luxury resort. Here you can also visit the centuries-old cellars, have wine tasting or dine in the superb restaurant.
A day of gourmet food?
Friuli-Venezia Giulia has a variety of recipes, with influences from Austria, Hungary and of course the near Veneto region. Slow Food movement was born in Italy and in this region has even more importance. Most restaurants use exclusively local ingredients and menus always offer what is in season. Many extraordinary restaurants are in Cormons or nearby, some were featured on TV by famous New York restaurant owners Mario Batali and Lidia Bastianich, the latter has also a farmhouse and a winery a few Km. from Cormons.
A day at the beach?
You can choose to tan and swim in the crystal clear waters along Trieste coast or on the vast sandy beaches of the Island of Grado also called “The Golden Island” for the color of its sand.
A day in Venice?
Venice is only 80 Km. away and it is easy to go there for a day trip, either by car on easy highway or by train.
A day in Slovenia?
Cormons is situated near the border with Slovenia and only 110 Km. to its capital, the beautiful and vibrant city of Liubljana, not to mention the splendid coast of Istria with quaint fishing villages or luxury resorts and spas.
A day at home?
Even if the house will only be a base for all the above activities you may enjoy a day relaxing at home and maybe taking just a short walk to the center of town for groceries shopping in the lively open air market (every Friday) or the numerous specialty stores.

Trip in Cormons
Trip in Cormons
We had a terrific visit: the town is within walking distance, yet the house is immerse in a pastoral environment, with fields and gardens around it. Cormons is a quaint little town with lots of history and a great selection of wines, superb food and enchanted castles in the surrounding hills. The accommodation has been the perfect base for discovery trips in the neighbouring towns and countryside as well as a the perfect location for relaxation and short trips. We have discovered great restaurants in the area, wineries, and fabulous little markets offering a variety of local specialties and superb wines. Definitely we'd recommend this accommodation.

Comfortable Handsome Villa in Delicious Delightful Friuli
Comfortable Handsome Villa in Delicious Delightful Friuli
Comfortably ensconced in this large and well-outfitted home, I enjoyed every moment exploring the stunning and largely undiscovered (by North Americans anyway) region of Italy: Friuli-Venezia-Giulia. Even the name Friuli-Venezia-Giulia I loved to repeat, rolling off the tip of my tongue, a region full of sensual delights: the wines of the Collio, cultivated in the handsome vineyards covering the sweeping hills surrounding Cormons; incredibly superb farmhouse restaurants and world-famous gourmet restaurants a few minutes drive from the house; the town's delicatessens featuring large assortments of local cheeses and cured meats and breads - I wanted to try everything, and I almost did. The people are also charming and friendly in this region, not jaded by ultra tourism as often found elsewhere in Italy. Nearby city destinations range from Udine (my favorite), a distinctly Venetian city, small yet sophisticated; Trieste, grand and Hapsbourgian yet folksy at the same time; Grado, a beach resort where, like me, you may happen upon singing at a characterful local wedding at an ancient church; Cividale, a lushly idyllic, ancient riverside town; and Aquileia and the vast stunning Roman mosaics of its cathedral. And don't let me forget to mention my two favorite drinks (besides the region's justifiably celebrated wines and grappa) - Aperol spritz (discover this soothing, orange afternoon drink), and Pelinkovac, an unforgettable herbal bitter with a hit as mighty as Absinthe.
