About Justin Young
My wife and I (not the Manager of the property Justin Young) discovered Slovenia many years ago.
We wanted a house in the beautiful Soca area and it took some time before we found Hisa Kal and it was love at first sight!
Justin Young purchased this villa in 2012
Why Justin Young chose Goriska
Driving through the beautiful alpine pastures of Kalminski Lom the road twists and enters an enormous beech forest, which is breathtakingly beautiful. Emerging from the forest and turning into Hisa Kal the vista suddenly opens onto a vast exhilarating panorama. The views from the house are stunning. the sunsets are magnificent and we have never seen two quite the same.
What makes this villa unique
Fabulous views. Unique setting. Close-by woods. Great walks.
Well placed for exploring local attractions and for day trips further afield.
Also a place for quiet relaxation and meditation.
Peace and tranquility are hard to come by these days but Hisa Kal provides them.
