About Roman & Kathi Graf

Kathi & Roman live in Europe - she's a Californian and he's Czech.

Roman & Kathi Graf purchased this apartment in 2004

Why Roman & Kathi Graf chose Piran

We discovered this gem on one of our travels and fell in love with Piran - it got under our skin and we couldn't let go. We loved the landscape - vineyards and olive groves sloping down to the sea and dotted with cypress trees and red tiled rooftops. The old charm of Piran pulled at us - the quiet, cobbled streets, the campanele with the archangel Michael on top of the spire, and the Baroque squares mixed with Venetian architecture. We were drawn to the quiet old fishing village where the people were friendly and the local food fresh and delicious.

What makes this apartment unique

We fell in love with our apartment mostly because it looks onto the marina and sea - and we saw a lot of potential! It was unlike any other apartment we had seen - it is big and spacious and all on one level. The windows are old portholes from ships and add character and unique views along the coast and to the village. We also loved that fact that it is just before the center of town, so walking down to the beach or to the shops and restaurants is easy.

Very nice Apt in Piran

  • 5 of 5

Great location to sit on the deck and watch the boats on the water and the sunset. Apt was comfortable, large and well equipped. Nice views of the water and promenade. Kathi and Roman are very friendly and accessible. We rented the apt for nine nights and did it all without a car. buses are best way to get around. We had some lovely seafood meals.

Perfect location to enjoy charming town of Piran

  • 5 of 5

The apt is in a perfect location to enjoy Piran or take a day trip to Ljubljana, Italy or Croatia. Everything you need is within short walking distance. Swimming, coffee shop, bar, bakery and great restaurants are literally a few meters from the apt. We enjoyed lots of time on the terrace enjoying the beautiful view of town for drinks at sunset, lunch or just relaxing in the sun. The apartment had everything we needed and owners were very responsive to a couple of minor issues that came up during our 2 week stay.

Comfortable, spacious, well equipped, convenient

  • 5 of 5

Piran.....the month of May passed far too quickly. The people, the food and of course, the apartment were wonderful. By the second day we felt completely "at home". The apartment is so well equipped and very comfortable. Its location is perfect.....a 5 minute stroll to Tartini Square and has an ever changing view from the roof deck across the harbor. This is the place to stay in Piran, unless you don't like the aroma of baking bread (great bakery right below; so fresh croissants and rolls every morning!!). We didn't want to leave! Thank you so much Roman and Kathi for providing us a wonderful place to stay in beautiful Piran. Bob and Janna, Banner Elk, NC, USA

Beautiful, large seaside flat.

  • 5 of 5

The flat was beautiful, and impressively large. It has such unique character--exposed beams in the lounge, and functioning porthole windows throughout. The furniture was all stylish and good quality. We could tell it was a well loved and cared for property. There was an amazing fireplace that we didn't wind up using, but it was gigantic.

We loved sitting on the rooftop patio and soaking up the sun and sea views.

Kathi and Roman were quick to reply to our questions and always very pleasant.

A few things to be aware of for a good stay-

1. there is no free car park in the area. The nearby parking garage is currently €17/day, and there's a free bus back to Piran that stops at the flat building. But, we asked a local who showed us some roads in/near Fieso that had free on-street parking. So we left our car there and walked about 1km back to the flat. Our car was fine, but obviously that could have been risky, and some will prefer the security of a car park. (though it seems like a very safe and friendly area). But once at the flat, there is no need for the car. Everything is within walking distance.

2. There are many steps to reach the flat. Almost 3 flights. This was fine for our group, we didn't mind at all because we were rewarded with such beautiful views!! But I did imagine if travelling with my older family members, this flat might not have been a good fit. There aren't steps inside the flat, just to enter.

We loved staying here, and if we make it back to Slovenia, we'd love to return to the flat.

Wow...Unbelievable Stay

  • 5 of 5

From our drive into Piran to stepping into the villa, this is exactly how I hoped our European vacation would begin. Kathi, the owner, was so helpful before our trip to the end. All the instructions were so informatative. We had a family of 8 staying at the villa from ages 9-75. There was so much space and comfort for all. It had everything we needed from 4 comfortable bedrooms, to a large family room with the best couch ever. Every day we walk downstairs to the bakery to get fresh donuts for breakfast. At night, we would head to the huge rooftop patio to watch the sunset for a glass of wine. The villa is in walking distance to everything...shops, restaurants, bars, tons of gelato stands. Coming from the United States, we really appreciated the space and luxury of all the amenities of the apartment including a dishwasher, washer, awesome showers, etc. Thanks, Kathi! We hope to visit again soon.

Piran is a quaint Venetian fishing village on the Istrian Coast between Italy and Croatia. The rooftop terrace on the apartment looks out onto the Adriatic Sea and across the sea to Venice and the Italian Alps beyond. Fun day trips include wine tasting in Croatia, hiking and swimming in nearby nature reserves, the old stone towns of Groznjan, Rovinj and Motovun, a day in Trieste where you can also enjoy a romantic evening dining on fine Italian cuisine and watch classical performances. There is a ferry service from Piran to Venice that runs from May through September departing early in the morning and returning in the evening. You can choose to spend the day in Venice or stay overnight in this lovely seafront city. Not only is Slovenia known for the Lipizzan horses and Postojna Caves, but also for their small, select wineries where you can enjoy a day of wine tasting and food pairing.

Slovenia is yet to be discovered - river rafting, fishing, hiking, bicycling with winter sports in the Alps are greeted by warm friendly people to make it a memorable holiday.
