Dvorec Zemono, also known as Zemono Manor, is an exquisite 17th-century Palladian building in the village of Zemono, between Vipava and Ajdovščina. As well as the splendid architecture and frescoes, the site offers truly stunning views of the vineyards and peach trees in valley, and also attracts many visitors because it is home to Gostilna Pri Lojzetu.
With its roots in a family business that opened at the end of the 19th century, the restaurant has been at its current location for more than ten years. Head chef Tomaž Kavčič is a descendent of the founding family, and is known for his take on Slow Food.
There are à la carte, set meal and tasting menu options, with many innovative approaches to traditional dishes.
