There is not a soul who has not heard of Venice. But did you know this famous and magical place stands on wooden logs from Karst? Karst is an unparalleled part of Slovenia. Its beautiful landscape, shaped by water and stone, will leave you speechless. Our guests have compared it to Italian Tuscany or French Provence. You will find Villa ASA in the very heart of the Karst landscape, where the sea breeze intertwines with the fresh mountain air. A special type of wind – the Karst burja (bora) – ensures excellent fresh air throughout the year, making Karst a great place for treating lung and asthmatic diseases or even heart issues. Guests from all over the world recognise villa ASA as their second home while taking preventive care of their bodies or undergoing medical treatment in the nearby hospital’s cave. Quality air, a great starting location for excursions and exploring the nearby sights, the elegance of the villa, and the personal approach of the hosts make it worth visiting this little piece of heaven where the bodies rest and the souls replenish. In our fast-paced everyday life, where we often face stressful situations and crises, resting and recovering is essential for a healthy, balanced and happy life. The Karst stone and fertile soil put the herbs growing in this part of Slovenia among the world’s best essential oils. Excellent natural conditions allow us to cultivate the fruits of nature, which we use to make delicious homemade dishes that are extremely important for healthy living. There are only 20 inhabitants in the village of Utovlje, home to Villa ASA. Every one of them nourishes a strong bond with nature and local farmers. Living in such a small place is a great advantage. We are like a big family, allowing you to blend into our natural environment. Of course, you are also welcome to explore the surroundings.
