House description - Puče 1R

The house is final in first of two triplet complexes of buildings in "L" shape that form a complete settlement for holidays with common swimming pool. The entire village is fenced and beautifully landscaped and maintained. Ownership of the swimming pool part is divided into six parts which provides a good and regular maintenance.

It is situated at an altitude of 303m, which means cleaner air and by 3 to 4 degrees lower summer temperatures. It is located between Šavrini hills, olive groves, vineyards, home to friendly locals - this is the Slovenian Tuscany! It has a view of the Slovenian and Croatian sea, even through Italy, at Grado and Lignano, the Dolomites, in short, an exceptional location, away from the tourist hustle and bustle of the summer heat. Despite this natural environment, is only 10 km (10 minutes) to Koper and swimming in the sea, 15 minutes to the center of Portorož, 20 minutes to Trieste, 15 minutes to Portorož Airport and 70 km, or 45 minutes to the airport Ronchi (Trieste)!

The house is classically constructed in compliance with all standards and has 10 cm of thermal insulation. The roof is made of the same quality, so even in the hottest summer days, air conditioning is rarely used. Building furniture is made of solid wood, painted white. The inner walls are made of Knauf boards of intermediate 5 cm insulation, in between is electrical installation. The building has an area of approximately 136 m2, and separately standing multi-purpose storage room of 12 m2.
