Taste and Energy
On the airy slopes of the Trnovo plateau lie the villages of Osek, Vitovlje, Šempas, Ozeljan, and Šmihel, basking in the sunshine of the lower Vipava valley.
These pretty tightly built settlements from Lijak to Sekulak, sitting safely above the fertile farmland and encircled by vineyards and orchards offer a variety of different experiences. Nature lovers will be charmed by the luxuriant greenery and blossom which is present almost all year round, and food lovers are enticed by a combination of marvellous tastes and scents which fill their plates and their glasses. Here an abundance of authentic home-made dishes and luxurious delights from the vineyard go hand in hand in a way only rarely found elsewhere, creating for each person a feeling of energy like a sequence of soft waves, giving a sense of perfect contentment.
