Exploring the Territory

Home Dren is the perfect location for nature lovers. Just a short walk from the building, you can immerse yourself in the green Karst trails. The nearest path, within walking distance from the B&B and perfect for bike tours, is the Gemina Trail, which runs along vineyards facing the Adriatic Sea and olive groves terraces challenging the infamous Bora wind.

One of the most spectacular trails overlooking the Gulf of Trieste is the one that leads to the panoramic Duino Castle. Located between the sea and the Duino Cliffs Natural Reserve, the Rilke Trail is just 8 km away from our Home.

Home Dren is located just 12 minutes by car from the sea and beaches and 25 minutes from the centre of Trieste and the Miramare Castle. It only takes 15 minutes by car to reach the cave “Grotta Gigante”, impressively large and beautiful, and in less than 5 minutes by car you can arrive in Slovenia, an enchanted country surrounded by nature and forests, and framed by the Julian Alps.
