Il Roseto - Duino Aurisina - Trieste
Il Roseto is a beautiful, modern house in the most attractive area of Trieste, sitting in the woods, yet a mere 800 metre walking distance from the fully served village of Aurisina, home to multi award winning 'Bunker' Pub, a great pizzeria, great butcher, a scrumptious bakery, several cafes and wine producers selling their wine 'sfuso' - just take your empty bottle with you.
Il Roseto offers a very spacious, 180 square meter house, with a huge, fully fitted kitchen, a double, a twin and a single bedroom, two lounges (one with a double sofa bed), a large dining room, a full bathroom with bathtub and shower and another full one with shower enclosure.
Off the kitchen opens the most beautiful rose garden with a gate taking you straight into the woods. You can in fact start your treks right from the house garden.
The garden offers a pergola, table and chairs, a BBQ, sun umbrella.
The house was built in 1999 and re-decorated fully in 2011.
Il Roseto is one of several semi detached villas sharing a gated entrance, everything else is private - no shared areas. We have covered private parking for 2 cars.
Enjoy walking into the village through the woods in the morning (or along the road if you prefer) to get fresh cornetto or the more typical cakes like Pasta Carsolina, a millefeuille filled with the nicest custard cream, or the 'moving cake' Gibanica a slovenian cake made with poppy seeds, baked apples, ricotta cheese and nuts...
Aurisina offers a very well stocked family run supermarket, a chemist, bank, hairdresser, 3 bars, a pizzeria, a pub, newsagent, baker, butcher (with excellent meat). Nearby is a great fishmonger selling top quality local fish. 2 km away you can buy organic cow cheese and 3 km away you have an organic grocery store.
Aurisina is the most spectacular part of Trieste and certainly of Friuli Venezia Giulia. Sitting in wild and beautiful countryside yet a mere 10 minutes drive for the city centre, Aurisina offers beautiful landscape, a relaxed atmosphere of gentle people and deeply fascinating countryside in every season.
Carso is a limestone plateau sitting behind and above the city and its beautiful, unspoiled coast, running along the Slovenian border. Carso is dotted with small, picturesque stone villages, each with its piazza, its baker, wine producers, small restaurants and the famous Osmiza. Osmiza are the most traditional seasonal venues, actually simple country homes opening up their patios to the public where the owners serve their own wine and charcuteries. Locals spend here many sunny afternoons before or after a long walk in the Carso woods. The area is well know to all nature and sports lovers. People come here to climb, windsurf, cycle, mtb and trek. People also come here for the beautiful sea. Day trips to Slovenia, Croatia and Austria are possible, as well as day trips to Venice or to the nearby dolomite mountains.
Every season offers magnificent views and activities that can be enjoyed by travellers of all ages.
