We will prepare a refreshing breakfast, and you will have more than enough time to enjoy it. Then, a renowned energy medicine practitioner will take you to the energy park and help you discover the energy points.

Energised water will accompany you throughout your journey. Your dinner, embodying the principle of self-sufficiency and seasonal ingredients, will be served under the old mulberry tree. You will enjoy home-cooked meals, prepared in a clay pot over charcoal. Trust us; you will fall asleep like a child and wake up to a new day reborn. In addition to the new, fresh energy, you will take away a special gift.
Go Truffle Hunting
The vibrant Karst nature, intertwining with landscape of the Slovenian Istria, is fruitful throughout the year. As winter sets and autumn follows, we get excited about white truffles – one of the most prized and expensive gastronomic ingredients. In Villa ASA we will organise a unique and unforgettable experience: white truffle hunting! Join an experienced truffle hunter and explore the mystic Karst forests, building a genuine connection with nature and discovering the peculiarities of this specific type of “hunting.” Do you think you have the skills to be a truffle hunter? We promise you an adrenaline rush for all your senses. Hunting day will end with an outstanding dinner, at which the white truffle will reign the plates.
Discover the Beautiful Karst by Bicycle
Bicycle is always a good option to take care of your physical health. Embark on a cycling trip over the Karst groves, forest paths, over the hills and valleys to picturesque peaks and remarkable views. To discover the less known corners, you can join an excellent guide – a connoisseur of secrets and mysteries who will take you along the hidden paths of our ancestors. The guide will tell you captivating stories, explaining history and cultural heritage of our land. Meanwhile, we will ensure you are not hungry, surprising you with a tasty picnic with local delights that you will enjoy in a meadow in the cradle of intact nature.
The Miraculous Effect of Horses
Horseback riding builds self-confidence, as horses are sensitive, sympathetic and loving creatures that quickly bond with humans. In some way, riding horses unites freedom and beauty. Karst is the proud home to the Lipica stud farm – birthplace of all Lipizzaner horses. Is there a better way to explore the Karst countryside than in the saddle of a Lipizzaner? Riding among the vineyards, lavender plantations and observing the beautiful surroundings is an elegant experience. Breathe in the scents of nature, and listen to the sounds of trees and birds while you enjoy this one-of-a-kind dream ride. Looking from the saddle, you will see the villages, wine cellars and learn about the Karst heritage. We live in harmony with this beautiful animal; we can help you join a horse-riding course, offer advice in choosing dressage or cross-country riding, or arrange a carriage ride.
Fall in Love with Teran Vineyards
This one-of-a-kind wine experience will take you through the spectacular Karst vineyards, growing native varieties from which Teran and Vitovska Grganja are produced. The journey among the vineyards will surprise you with beautiful panoramic views over the surrounding hills while you will learn more about the process of traditional wine making. Kind-hearted locals will welcome you in their cellars, where you will immerse into the stories of wine and Karst history…And let us not skip wine tasting – after all, you will be in a winery.
Royal Treatment for Pets
Your pets are just as welcome as you are. In the property’s fenced park, they can move freely, jump around, explore, and have a wonderful time! In the evening, they will be exhausted from outdoor activities and fall asleep in the blink of an eye. Pets are our guests, and we treat them as such. Upon arrival, they receive a welcome treat. Comfortable beds and bowls are laid out for them. Upon your request, we serve them an organic dinner and are happy to provide day care. Villa ASA is a royal vacation for your pets, who might be just as sad to leave as you.
