The Majerija House comprises of 4 main buildings. The initial house was built around the year 1700. It was used by the custodian of the Lanthieri Counts’ estates for the maintenance of their property at Slap. Soon the house became too small, which made it necessary to build an additional outhouse with a stone vaulted cellar. Above it stood a “faladur” – a room for grape/wine processing and granary for produce. Soon after a stable and hay shed were added to the domicile, and finally, a shed was built to connect all the units into a combined homestead.
In 1856, the Counts of Lanthieri moved from Vipava to Gorica and sold Majerija and its belonging property to the custodian of that time. The family then lived on the property for the next 56 years and took good care of it. Since the family lacked an apt heir, the landlord, when lying on his dying bed in 1910, bequeathed the house and the property to his brother, who lived with his family in nearby Goče. The new owners and landlords received approximately 10 hectares of prime-quality vineyards, orchards and fields with the Majerija estate including an 18-headed livestock in the stable.

We work hard for you.
In addition to an excellent culinary and wine experience, the Majerija House offers you a unique experience of staying underground. There are 10 double rooms with a herbal theme. They are located under the herb garden, right next to our 300-year-old farmhouse. The decision to build the rooms below the surface of the ground stems from the fact that the Majerija is a cultural monument, which we did not want to devalue with a new structure. It is also due to the fact that we are located literally between vineyards and orchards and thus do not affect the beautiful natural landscape. We are preserving nature for today and tomorrow.
However, we have made sure that the rooms are naturally lit with plenty of sunlight, full of homeliness and positive energy. During the day, you can watch the sky unfold from your room, and in the evening, you can enjoy stargazing from your bed. The whole experience is rounded off by pleasant peace and quiet. A must-try experience!
Rooms are available all days of the week, all year round.
