Stopped and walked through the village, it didn’t take long. The views were great and the old streets and buildings lovely. However personally not a lot happening here, two little shops open with not a lot on offer. Has so much untapped potential, we felt...More

Small historic village in Brda, in an area with many vineyards. The village is situated on a hill and there are great views of the surrounding countryside. One can also taste wine and olive oil. Worth a visit!

I live in Slovenia. But I am sure you can find place in Nova Gorica or Tolmin od Idrija to stay. It's not so far away. It depends on what you plan to visit. Even capital Ljubljana is not so far away.
