Host review score

Sebastjan, Eva, Tobija, Paula
The House of Marica is situated within the majestic walls of the picturesque medieval village of Šmartno. Once a military fort, today, a romantic place, where it seems that time stopped long ago. The old renovated homestead was named after "Nona" Marica, (Grandmother Marica) who spoiled children with simple but excellent local dishes.
Our homestead is located just before the hilly area passes into the plain “Prevala”, as locals call this part of the Friuli plain. This special position not only gives beautiful panoramic views, but also an ever-present breeze, which has a beneficial effect on the maturation of hams, salami, bacon and other delicacies, which for many years have been produced with much love and patience under the roof of our homestead.
Millions of years ago the area of Brda was covered by the sea. It was the time when the fertile soil was created that one day will give tons of juicy fruit and wines of exceptional quality. Gradually, the sea withdrew and mother earth, through the centuries, created an idyllic landscape strewn with hills, intertwined with brooks and streams, covered with lush greenery. Landscape, which gradually descends to the vast plains of Friuli and the horizon disappears into the depths of the Adriatic Sea. Meanwhile the human hand sowed and reaped and so appeared orchards, vineyards, gardens, groves of olives and herbs and everything that makes the Brda region so fabulous.
