The bio-farmhouse invites its guests to comfortable stays in apartments suitable for families, in the peaceful nature frame of the Rural Park of “Alture di Polazzo” upon the plateau Carso (114 mt. above the sea level), in a boundary area (12 Km) between the Region of Friuli Venezia Giulia and Slovenia, and within few kilometres from the beaches of the Adriatic Sea (15 Km). The farmhouse is also located in the historical ground of the First World War, and in the natural area of the Europe Nature Network 2000.
