The Silicanum property is a family-run agriturismo. It comprises 2 buildings with apartments, a swimming pool and an attached olive grove with a large garden. The entire property is located on the outskirts of Gorizia, Italy, just a few hundred metres from the beautiful Soča River.
Since 2009, Silicanum has been offering the possibility of renting apartments for holidays or longer stays in several comfortable apartments. The spacious dining room and professionally equipped kitchen also allow for marketing as bed & breakfast or guest house accommodation. In the stylishly furnished apartments, the first thing that catches the eye are the exquisite natural materials, which give a touch of tradition and comfort.
A walk through the olive grove gives the visitor a Mediterranean atmosphere, which is complemented by the pleasant coastal climate with its hot sun and lush coastal vegetation, which offers shade in the pleasant corners of the garden.
The swimming pool made of natural materials and operating with completed technology invites us with its freshness. The estate is more then self-sufficient in its own energy production. The wood pellet underfloor heating system and the photovoltaic infrastructure,carefully designed and constructed, produce more electricity then the own needs are.The large gardens allow for the production of vegetables for own consumption, this is also favoured by the mild coastal climate.
We are also particularly impressed by the wine cellar, which stocks a whole range of high-quality wines from the nearby vineyards of Friuli and the famous wine-growing area of Brda, also known as the Slovenian Tuscany. The cellar is also suitable for wine-growing activities.
In its micro-location, the estate is situated between two cities with a hinterland of 80,000 inhabitants: Gorizia in Italy, with its medieval castle and museums, Nova Gorica, with its casino tourism and Solkan, which is a great destination for lovers of water sports and other adrenaline activities. The proximity of the Alps, which are accessible via the Soča Valley, the Adriatic Sea within 20 km and Venice with its international airport at a distance of just over 100 km create an excellent macro-location for tourism activity.
