A medieval castle/manor house set amongst green meadows, forests and vineyards and at the foot of and overlooking the Gorjanci Mountains. A two storey medieval building rebuilt in the 16th century.
The castle is still in good condition in terms of carrying capacity. The walls are bricked and the building has a new roof. Some investment will certainly be needed to give the property back its old charm, but the potential is enormous for, for example: wine tourism, wellness & accommodation, conferences and music festivals.
The castle is a local cultural monument and is included in the National Register of Cultural Heritage. The new owner will be proud of the property that in the past belonged, among others, to the Counts Gottfried and Ulrik, as described by Valvasor, and later to the Turjaški dynasty. In 1833 it was bought by a Slovenian and even the most famous Slovenian poet France Prešeren is said to have stayed here.
The site is located on the right bank of the Krka River and is 10 km from the Ljubljana-Zagreb highway. Not far is Vrhovo Castle, and it is only 8 km from Otočec Castle near excellent inns, bars and restaurants.
The property and land are debt-free and have a Land Registry registration.
