We live and work in Doberdò del Lago – Doberdob a few miles from Monfalcone and the border with Slovenia.
The area of Doberdò is a quiet area, surrounded by meadows and vineyards, oak, and sumac from the Carso. To the east of the country lies the singular intermittent karstic lake, unique in its kind in Italy, and all around we meet numerous karst phenomena. Among the prehistoric remains are the forts and closer to our time in the trenches and tunnels dug into the rock during the Great War.
The climate is cool and breezy in summer and mild in winter, as this area is barely touched by the wind. The area is characterized by the presence of the Slovene-speaking population that for centuries lives on theKarst. The writings and public indications are given in Italian and Slovenian.
