Guestbook comments from the manager
Dear Ana,



Thank you for your mail. We would like to thank you for staying in Villa Aurora. We had a nice time in Slovenia. We liked the countryside and the people a lot. The people were very welcoming and we were very happy that most of them spoke English as the Slovenian language is fully unknown to us. We've visited Piran, Izola, Portorose, Koper and Lipiza. In Lipiza we played golf and saw the horses. We also went to Venezia by boat from Piran. We had a nice trip with very kind guides.



We liked the maisonette very much. We slept very well. It's a lovely peaceful area and the beds were very good. Unfortunately we broke two waterglasses. We replaced them by three other ones, which of course were not exactly the same as the ones we broke. I hope you don't mind. We also bought a teapot, as we all like to drink tea and missed a pot. We left it in your house for you and other guests and hope you don't feel it as a intervention in your household.

We didn't manage to put on the TV properly. We only could receive one channel of the BBC. We didn't mind too much so don't worry about that. We played lots of games and had nice evenings together.



In your instructions you wrote that we had to turn to the right at the trafficlights in Strunjan, but there are no traffic lights anymore. It didn't cause a problem for us. I write you this just for your information. You might want to change the instructions.



There is on more thing we think you have to know: there were quite a lot of ants in the house. We could handle it, but thought it good for you to know. Probably you want to take measures.



Thank you,

best regards,

Edske

SUPERB BASE FOR A FANTASTIC HOLIDAY

  • 5 of 5
Booking our stay was really easy, Ana was very helpful in answering all our questions and making sure we had all the info we needed.

The Villa is divided into two spacious holiday homes, we stayed in 'Alba' and it was absolutely perfect for us. Lovely big rooms give it a good airy feel, and it was well equipped with everything we needed to enjoy our stay. The whole Villa has recently been rebuilt and fitted out tastefully (there's an interesting photographic record of the rebuilding process hanging on the walls). The terrace is a great space for relaxing, as the Villa is in such a peaceful setting.

The location is superb, it's only a few minutes walk to the sea front - and you even have a choice of beaches with totally unique characteristics: The main seafront area has Cafés and restaurants nearby and is perfect for swimming - the walk to get there is very flat and easy. If you head the other direction from the Villa you will find a secluded beach at the foot of the Strunjan cliffs, very different from the main area, highly recommended!

It would be easy to spend all your time between the Villa and the sea, but the Villa location is also superb for easy access to Piran and Izola (lots more great places to eat), and it was also extremely easy to head into Croatia for a spot of lunch in Grožnjan (plenty of other places within easy reach too). It's also well worth exploring the hill towns in the local area, we enjoyed a great lunch with a view in Korte as one stop on a leisurely trip to visit interesting Hrastolvje.

Overall Villa Aurora is highly recommended, we had a fantastic stay and we hope to return soon! :)

ABSOLUTE GEM!

  • 5 of 5
We recently (May 2013) stayed at Villa Aurora and absolutely loved it. The villa is very spacious, clean, and with all the comforts of home. The location is perfect, set amongst a small little area of secluded homes and gardens, yet the ocean and beaches are a 8-10 minute walk from the villa. Directly behind the villa up a small path leads you to the famous Cliffs of Strunjan with incredible views over the Adriatic and with footpaths down to secluded beaches, and great walking/hiking paths.

Piran, Izola, and Koper are very short drives, while Lake Bled is a little over an hours drive. We especially loved crossing over into Croatia (30min) to explore some great hilltop villages and our absolute favorite town of the area Rovinj (60min), an incredible beautiful town directly on the Adriatic.

Making arrangements with Ana was very easy and it was nice to be able to pick up the keys to the villa at a local hotel (5 minutes away), which means you don't need to be rushing to a prearranged time.

Everything about our stay was perfect and we will definitely return to further explore this stunning area.

ONE OF THE BEST HOLIDAYS EVER

  • 5 of 5
Even if it was recommended by our friends who passed their holidays in Strunjan last year, Villa Aurora exceeded our expectations: a perfect combination of feeling you at home in a tasteful equipped house and in the same time carefree holidays in a beautiful country.

It was hardly to believe: so quiet and peaceful only a few kilometers walking from Piran and some 600 meters from te sea. One morning even a roe passed in the garden.

Either you prefer nature or culture: both are nearby or easily accessible by car.

Back at home my daughter exclaimed: one of the best holidays ever!

RELAXING HOLIDAY NEAR THE COAST

  • 5 of 5
When you see the villa for the first time, your holiday starts right away... It is beautiful situated near the coast but with quiet surroundings and all the privacy you need.
The house is very well equipped with all the nessesary luxury you need to complete your holiday.
The property was very clean en modern (especially for Slovenian standards)
A little shop and resaturants are nearby and the food is good.
If you want, you don't have to leave the house: nature and quietness is all around you!
We really can recommend this villa to everyone who loves good weather, the coast but not the tourists that go along with it!

GERÄUMIGE WOHNUNG IN TOLLER REGION

  • 4 of 5
Wir waren mit unseren Kindern (10,13) für neun Tage im slowenischen Istrien und sehr begeistert. Piran und Izola sind wunderschöne Küstenorte, Strunjan sowie Portoroz bieten gute Bademöglichkeiten. Vor allem aber waren wir mit unseren Mountainbikes unterwegs, mit denen wir auch das knapp 10 km entfernte kroatische Istrien gut erkunden konnten; Triest liegt nur 35 Autominuten entfernt.
Das Haus wird in den Fotos gut wiedergegeben, es liegt in einem Landschaftsschutzgebiet ca. 1 km vom Zentrum des bis auf seinen hübschen Strand und ein Thalasso-Bad unauffälligen Strunjan. Der Blick reicht über Wiesen, Schilf und Bäume bis zu einer Saline/Lagune. Piran ist knapp zehn Autominuten, das offene Meer ca.1 km entfernt und von der Terrasse aus nicht zu sehen.

Die „Villa Aurora“ ist ein recht neues DH, wir bewohnten die hintere Maisonette mit Wohn-Ess-Bereich und großem Duschbad/WC im EG sowie einem kleineren Zimmer mit Einzelbetten, einem Schlafzimmer mit Doppelbett sowie einem Badezimmer mit Wanne/WC im OG. Die Bezeichnung Luxusvilla greift m. E. etwas zu hoch, vor allem die Einrichtung im Wohnbereich mit brauner Couch, einem kleinen grauen Röhren-TV, vergilbtem IKEA-Regal etc. wirkt angejahrt. Doch dafür gibt es viel Platz, schön geflieste Böden, Waschmaschine, Kühlschrank, Geschirrspülautomat, Gaskochfeld, jede Menge Geschirr, Staubsauger, Bügeleisen usw. -- selbst eine Tischtennisplatte war vorhanden! Wir hätten uns lediglich noch Insektengitter vor den Fenstern gewünscht. Im August 2013 hatten wir sehr mit Stechmücken zu kämpfen; Ein Repellent sollte man also einpacken, um die Abende im Freien zu genießen. Als Menschen, die stets bei offenen Fenstern schlafen verzichteten wir auf die bei Buchung vorab zu bezahlende Nutzung der Klimaanlage, kamen bei Temperaturen um die 30 Grad aber noch sehr gut ohne klar.

Mit Besitzerin Ana hatten wir lediglich E-Mail-Kontakt. Sie will recht genau wissen, an wen sie vermietet und schickte für die Buchung Formulare mit sehr detaillierten AGBs, dann eine 6-seitige Gebrauchsanweisung für das Haus von der Mülltrennung bis zur korrekten Positionierung der TV-Fernbedienung vor Abreise. Bei unserer Ankunft lag der Hausschlüssel in einem Key Safe bereit. Am Abreisetag lernten wir noch die Eva, die nette Hausdame vor Ort, kennen – wir hatten verschlafen, und sie bot lächelnd an, einfach zwei Stunden später wiederzukommen, was uns Zeit zur Komplettierung der vom Mieter zu leistende Endreinigung ließ. Herzlichen Dank nochmals!

Strunjan is one of the nicest seaside villages on the Slovenian Adriatic. Within walking distance of the villa are a variety of restaurants (some specialising in seafood), bars, shops, sports facilities (tennis, volleyball) & a large health / wellness centre with a wide variety of treatments available. Strunjan Bay is 10 minutes walk offering a lovely view across to beautiful St George's cathedral in Piran and excellent swimming from a man made beach and on a natural beach in the next bay at the foot of the lovely Strunjan cliffs (20 minutes walk from the villa). The village is just a few km from Piran, a beautiful, historic Venetian town on a peninsula jutting into the Adriatic & Izola, a small, bustling fishing village / resort town. Piran and Izola, which both offer plentiful opportunities for sightseeing, shopping, eating out and beaches. The larger resort of Portoroz is a few km further. Daytrips to world-class caves, the Lippizaner stud, Ljubljana & Venice are easily possible.

Other Activities: Wellness centre 5 min walk, volleyball, golf and horse riding 25 min drive

Golf: Golf Course at Lipica is located in the typical Karst countryside, shadowed by centuries- old limes and oaks and blessed with a mild Mediterranean climate. The Karst landforms make of it a most spectacular and beautiful course. One particular feature of Lipica course is that it's the only one in Slovenia providing golf throughout the whole year. Laid out in 1989 by Donald Haradine, one of the world's most famous course designers. It is a nine- holes golf course with practice area and two practice greens. The course's total length is 3163m, par 37, SR 71,9; CR 116.
