About Ana Tuma

We are a family of 4 ; parents and two boys and we live between Slovenia and Italy. We love our villa Aurora and like to spend our free time here. As we don't have as much of free time and holidays as we would like to have we decided to share Villa Aurora with our guests.

Why Ana Tuma chose Slovenia

Because it is an excellent mixture of ' away from it all' and the 'social life': situated in the middle of the protected Natural Park and yet it is so near all the facilities such as great shopping, cinema, sports and leisure activities .

What makes this villa unique

The front terrace for unforgettable breakfasts

Guestbook comments from the manager

Lovely house in the middle of nature

  • 4 of 5

We were very surprised by the size of the house, very big with everything you need! Plenty of space to sit and play in the garden. Walking distance to the beach and a lovely restaurant. The town Strunjan in a very nice village in the middle of nature. We visited Ljubjana, Postojna cave, Predjama castle, Koper,Portoroz, Piran, Izola, Skocjan cave, Lipica and we did a bike tour to the salt fields and museum. We went to the adventure park for climbing in the trees.

And still enough to see and to do! We did miss our own bikes, next time we will bring them. Everything can be easy vistited by car.

We love Slovenia and villa Aurora and will be back!!

Excellent holiday with a variety of options to do

  • 5 of 5

The villa is excellent, there can be nothing better. The house is beautiful, comfortable and equipped with all you need. Also the surrounding area is very beautiful and natural. This is a sub-mediterranean zone with very interesting and rich vegetation, more green than that of Croatia. There is a beautiful path along the top of the cliff. Also, Piran is a very charming city, a must for visit, and can easily be accessed by bus or car (garage). After visiting the beautiful but crowdy Piran/Portoroz you really feel the holiday when you came back to Villa Aurora and listen just to the birds singing.

I highly recommend Villa Aurora for all those who love nature and tranquillity, yet there are also some other things to do nearby. Our family (wife+me+2 children) were all absolutely satisfied with our holidays:)

Review of beaches:

1. Centre of Strunjan: nice municipal beach with toilets, ice-cream/restaurant, playground for children, the swimming area is organized in form of a swimming pool. A good option for children.

2. 100-200 m away to the right of beach 1. Natural coast under the cliff, stones (shoes recommended), nice swimming in a plain sea. The stony beach is clean. Good option for adults.

3. 200-400 m away to the right of beach 1. Same as (2) but textile-free;)

4. 600 m away of beach 1, also accesible from the top of the cliff. This is a beautiful bay to watch from the top, yet the beach and the water it is not completely clean for swimming. This is a good option for the sunset (at the cross close to the church).

5. You may also choose to swim in Piran/Portoroz/Fiesa. Piran has the most widely open, beautiful blue sea. The walking path from Fiesa to Piran is fantastic.

Lovely peaceful villa

  • 4 of 5

Lovely villa in a peaceful location, within easy walking distance of a pebbly beach. Spacious and well maintained. I would recommend this villa to anyone who likes to be a bit off the beaten track. We enjoyed swimming in the Adriatic. Piran is a gorgeous town, very close. We also visited fantastic caves at Postojna and castle built into the rocks. Looking forward to going back sometime

Villa close by the sea and surrounded by nature.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this nice villa very much. The house was clean and well equipped (dishwasher and washer) and 2 bathrooms! Airco for hot days! Very nice view and also a very good location to make several trips in the area. Only 1h drive from Ljubiljana. I surely would recommend it to friends and family.

We enjoyed also the sea-food in the restaurants at the coast. (Piran and Portoroz)

Thanks a lot!!!

  • 5 of 5

Dear Ana,

Thanks a lot from me and all my family !!! The villa is absolutely great, large and comfortable inner spaces, we was living in both maisonettes (8 person), plenty of room for everybody, nicely furnished,toys for kids, games, table tennis... what I can say? everything you may need!.... Veranda is great!, spent there a 1/4 of our three week visit to Slovenia, nice mountain-salt lake view. The location is perfect - 10 minutes walk to the beach, 7 to 10 minutes drive to all the Slovenia's main costal cities, couple of nice restaurants in 10-15 minutes walk, 30 minutes drive to Italy, to an interesting city - Trieste . Villa lies in Strunjan National Park with pheasants, deers and ...... hedgehogs living next to you (A DREAM). The place is absolutely fantastic, quit, relaxing, clean and fresh, making a right atmosphere for vacation! ....I can continue long :)........ We are coming back!

We had a great time at Aurora, Thanks to you Ana !

And thank you for easy and pleasant communication!

Andrey and Family

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.

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.
