Wonderful Vodole. Unspoiled nature just a stone’s throw away from Maribor. A walk among the plantations of old Slovenian varieties of fruit trees, learning about various herbs and visiting the permaculture garden are just a part of the story of the SUNNY PARADISE estate, where Nesting Resort lies.
Here, farmers with their sense of space and environment are constantly looking for intersections between modern viticulture and nature.
On a heavy soil, they form a symbiosis of vineyards, cereal fields, flowering meadows, and herb plantations. Only in such a coexistence of plants and animals can the Slovenian countryside be shown in the most beautiful light. Visit us and see for yourself!
In the heart of the old city centre on Lent, the oldest vine in the world still grows in front of the Old Vine House. The Old Vine was planted towards the end of the Middle Ages, when Maribor was facing Ottoman invasion.
It survived the furious fights between the invaders and the defenders of the city, as the Old Vine House used to be a part of the city wall. The vine was not harmed by the fires then, which occurred frequently due to wooden roof structures and straw coverings, nor by the vine lice that destroyed most of the other vines. Even though the bombardment of the Allied forces during World War II partly destroyed the Old Vine House, this resilient plant survived unscathed.
The confirmed age of the vine is over 400 years, which won it a place in the Guinness Book of Records as the oldest noble vine in the world still bearing grapes.
Sunny paradise estate
A walk among the plantations of tall old Slovenian varieties of fruit trees, learning about herbs and visiting the permaculture garden are just a part of the story of the Sun Paradise Estate on which Nesting Resort and the Vodole Wine Fountain lie. All children, adolescents and those young at heart are invited to try the adrenaline attraction of the zipline “Bee Flight”. It will definitely leave a mark of an exceptional experience in nature, when you fly over meadows, streams and land in the woods among the treetops. The second steel cable almost 30 meters above the ground will return you to the starting point. Come and see for yourself, worth a try!
