Sot dal Tor is a small and simple holiday apartment in the historic centre of Capriva del Friuli in the Collio region, on the border between Italy and Slovenia. The wine-loving tourist, or just one who would like to discover a small border territory with a unique character, can spend a holiday in a quiet, comfortable place.
The apartment consists of a living-room with kitchen area and veranda, a bedroom with three beds, a bathroom and a garden with parking. The apartment is fully equipped with crockery, a fridge, towels, pillows, blankets and sheets.
On request we can give advice on places to visit, tours, nature trips, wines, vineyards, wine producers and good food destinations.
In front of the house you get a wonderful bakery cafe where you have a very italian breakfast.
During the First World War the whole of the Collio area was the scene of battles between Italy and the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Two important War Museums, in Gorizia (10km) and in Caporetto (Kobarid) (50km) in Slovenia ((website: hidden)), are dedicated to that tragic period. The big War Cemetery in Redipuglia, a monument to that dramatic event, is 16km away. Many tourist trails follow what were the front lines of the war and the remains of the trenches.
At a distance of 20 and 30km respectively are the two most important Nature Reserves in the Gorizia province: Isola della Cona ((website: hidden)) at the mouth of the river Isonzo and the Valle Cavanata ((website: hidden)) in the Grado lagoon. Going up the splendid valley of the river Isonzo in Slovenia, after about 110 km, you come to the source of the river and to the magnificent Slovenian National Park, Triglav ((website: hidden)).
