I cannot say enough good things about this place, both Piran in general & Apartments Bevk in particular. We stayed in the Estrella apartment at the end of September. I highly recommend the shoulder season, as the weather was great & the place was less crowded than when I was there in June the year before.
Estrella apartment is on the top floor of the newer of the 2 Bevk apartment buildings. The building has an absolutely beautiful, brand new, circular wooden staircase. At each landing there is a door to an apartment, which were all identical (the 2 below us being empty while we were there). There is another floor above the top floor apartment, where you can access the rooftop terrace (smallish, but quite nice). There are clotheslines on the terrace to dry clothes & also clothes drying racks in the small attic room, in case of inclement weather. We really enjoyed sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine, while the clothes dried quickly in the breeze.
The windows of Estrella look out over the beautiful town of Piran, with the historic town walls in the distance. There are exterior shutters that can be closed with the windows open, for ventilation with privacy. One of the advantages of the small town of Piran was the lack of street noise; the little bit of sound that came in the windows was neighbors chatting, quite pleasant.
The owner met us on arrival to guide us to the apartment. We were able to take the car quite close, long enough to load & unload the luggage. He also showed us a free place to park, which was a short hike, but very nice & safe.
While these apartments are not right on the square, they are a short walk from the center. In Piran, walking is mandatory, as the narrow streets are mostly closed to vehicles. We really enjoyed walking down the back streets to the square for our morning cuppa. There is also a well-stocked grocery near the apartments.
