Nestled within over thirty-five acres of rolling green hillsides and exquisite vineyards, in the heart of the scenic wine region of Styria, is a true paradise for lovers of nature, luxury...and wine itself!
Styria, just moments away from the bustling city of Maribor, is one of the most unspoilt destinations in Slovenia. The Ramšak estate, with its fairytale country castle, is over two centuries old, steeped in ancient history and drenched in natural beauty.
There are plenty of delights to revel in here, from the sparkling river water and lush green views all around, to the tuneful birdsong that welcomes every morning. Not to mention the resort's very own wine cellar with the largest wine press in Europe, a graft of the world's oldest vine and tasting bar, situated next to a romantic and revitalising pond.
All that's left to do now is choose your accommodation, from a selection of spacious bamboo and canvas tents...or for special occasions, a treehouse! Wherever you stay, you will be guaranteed exceptional comfort, stunning views and welcoming hospitality.
The glamping tents are available in two sizes; large or small - ideal for couples or small families looking to relax amongst all the pleasures of nature. Cleanly decorated and equipped with everything you'll need for a luxurious stay, you'll find plenty of space to unwind, with comfy beds, a private bathroom, your own terrace, mini bar, Wi-Fi...and even a TV and Jacuzzi! Combined air conditioning and heating will keep you cool and cosy on the sunniest and stormiest of days.
For those who have always dreamed of living high amongst the whispering trees, the tent-shaped treehouse, set four metres above the ground and with spectacular vineyard views, is an enchanting childhood fantasy brought to life.
Sleeping up to four people, you'll find the same delights inside your treehouse, including a terrace, Jacuzzi and private bathroom, as you'll find inside the tents - for a true luxury life amongst the leaves!
Laze on your private lounger with a good book, chat with your loved one on the terrace as the first stars appear in the evening sky, or take a dip in your bubbling Jacuzzi with a cold glass of wine waiting for you - the choice is yours. Lanterns dotted around the estate give a soft, romantic glow by evening, and if you're lucky, you may even spot a few native deer wandering in the dusk.
Begin your day with a freshly-delivered breakfast basket full of local goodies, and then perhaps take a stroll around the estate, taking in the eco pond that's teeming with wildlife, or perhaps the lush green vineyards.
For those who still feel the need to sample city life, a trip to culture-steeped Maribor, Slovenia's second-largest city, won't disappoint, with its array of independent shops and restaurants to enjoy (the Ramšak estate's own restaurant will open in 2018).
Back on the estate, why not take advantage of the extensive wine cellar, and arrange a tasting tour that will also allow you to learn about the Chateau Ramšak's fascinating history?
Retreat to your relaxing accommodation by soft lantern light, say goodnight to the deer, and head to your cosy bed...your dream holiday in the blissful slow lane of life has just begun.
