Piran is a quaint Venetian fishing village on the Istrian Coast between Italy and Croatia. The rooftop terrace on the apartment looks out onto the Adriatic Sea and across the sea to Venice and the Italian Alps beyond. Fun day trips include wine tasting in Croatia, hiking and swimming in nearby nature reserves, the old stone towns of Groznjan, Rovinj and Motovun, a day in Trieste where you can also enjoy a romantic evening dining on fine Italian cuisine and watch classical performances. There is a ferry service from Piran to Venice that runs from May through September departing early in the morning and returning in the evening. You can choose to spend the day in Venice or stay overnight in this lovely seafront city. Not only is Slovenia known for the Lipizzan horses and Postojna Caves, but also for their small, select wineries where you can enjoy a day of wine tasting and food pairing.
Slovenia is yet to be discovered - river rafting, fishing, hiking, bicycling with winter sports in the Alps are greeted by warm friendly people to make it a memorable holiday.
Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: Kathi & Roman live in Europe - she's a Californian and he's Czech.
Why the Owner Chose Portoroz: We discovered this gem on one of our travels and fell in love with Piran - it got under our skin and we couldn't let go. We loved the landscape - vineyards and olive groves sloping down to the sea and dotted with cypress trees and red tiled rooftops. The old charm of Piran pulled at us - the quiet, cobbled streets, the campanele with the archangel Michael on top of the spire, and the Baroque squares mixed with Venetian architecture. We were drawn to the quiet old fishing village where the people were friendly and the local food fresh and delicious.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: We fell in love with our apartment mostly because it looks onto the marina and sea - and we saw a lot of potential! It was unlike any other apartment we had seen - it is big and spacious and all on one level. The windows are old portholes from ships and add character and unique views along the coast and to the village. We also loved that fact that it is just before the center of town, so walking down to the beach or to the shops and restaurants is easy.
