“Best place in Brda”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

We came for the 3rd time to the area and 2nd time to this guest house. And we will come back. Uros is just the perfect host and his wine is one of the best in the area. There is no restaurant but this is no disadvantage as there are so many excellent places around and Uros will tell you where to go. Breakfast is just fantastic. We also had a jog every morning in the vineyards. It is also perfect to bike. What else to say? Ah.... The price is really fair.

This place is amazing, sorrounded by wineyards, good wine and tasty home made meat products!

Swimmning pool is just a cherry in the top. Try swimming with a glass of wine - priceless!

Perfect place to relax, would recommend and will be back for sure!

And check map or set garmin before coming :)

Myself and my three daughters stayed at this lovely hotel for two nights as part of our Italy/Slovenia trip. The room was large and stylishly decorated. Huge windows led to a balcony, both of which afforded wonderful views of the surrounding countryside and vineyards. The owner was so nice and helpful and the breakfast provided was delicious and plentiful, including some local delicacies for us to try. We were so pleased we decided to stay in this part of Slovenia, but most of all in this fantastic hotel.

We really enjoyed our stay at House Iaquin. The setting is stunning, nestled in the little village of Vipolze, surrounded by vineyards and fruit trees. Nearby (not quite walkable) you will find the towns of Medana and Dobrovo, which both offer great opportunities for wine tasting and eating lovely food. Indeed Uros, the owner of Iaquin, makes wine himself, which we sampled a couple of glasses of - and decided was delicious enough to buy a bottle to take home. The house itself is very modern with minimalist design and clean edges. The balconies all overlook the pool and the vineyards beyond it. We were crazy enough to swim in the pool despite it being cold due to a lot of recent rain and it was surprisingly refreshing (once the initial shock had died down!) to swim in the cool water whist looking out over the vines. The breakfast was particularly delicious with the usual meats & cheese supplemented by pancakes & strudel. Uros was a great host - he gave us loads of suggestions for places to eat and drink locally and even made a reservation for us and checked that a taxi would be available for us as the local area was busy with a festival the weekend we were there. I would highly recommend this place if you want to explore the wine region of Goriska Brda.

Ah, it's so nice to wake up in House Iaquin...it is namely a very pleasing modern house with a simply breathtaking view to the vineyards, cherry and peach trees. We discovered it by accident, driving around in the great Goriska Brda and spontaneously decided to stop... And it was a very good decision :). The owner is young, produces great wine, smartly decided for a market nieche and quality. The breakfast is good, everything local, they produce a lot on their own. Later on we hosted a small party there, it was an excellent choice, people had really a lot of fun :)! Highly recommendable!

What a fantastic place! A completely modernist house in a charming village with good restaurants not far from Trieste airport. We loved the minimalist design and large rooms with balcony over the swimming pool. Pretty countryside too! A super swimming pool, interesting and delicious breakfast with lots of home cooked touches. The young owners were charming and professional and the price was very reasonable. No chintz here! We loved it and it made an excellent start to our holiday in Slovenia.

This was one of two wine stays we had in Slovenia and the rooms were excellent, the breakfast was also and the wine was outstanding. It was more then WE usually pay for a room but it was well worth it. I only wish we had been a week earlier when it was still hot and could have used the pool that overlooks the beautiful vineyards. Our host was also the vintner and was very charming.
