About the hotel
The San Martin Hotel is a result of devotion and courage of the spouses Vesna and Bogdan, two enterprising individuals, in love with the Brda landscape. Once, there was an Italian and then Yugoslavian school, until it was abandoned and the building started to fall apart. In this part of Šmartno, an idyllic Brda village, Vesna and Bogdan saw more than a school falling apart. Vesna, an entrepreneur with experience in sales, hotel management and winemaking, and Bogdan, the 3rd level sommelier, a mechanical engineer otherwise, put San Martin on its feet, which is not only a hotel but a life project and their second home.
San Martin is not fused with the environment and interwoven with nature only apparently, but the whole construction and details are well-conceived and in accordance with the environmental standards. In construction, natural and sustainable materials were merely used, such as wood, iron, stone and concrete. A lot of functionalities are also solved in an environment friendly way. E. g. the hotel is heated and cooled down with the heat pump or wood chips furnace, while there is a double water distribution system, providing for the rational and smart waste water management.
All rooms, suites and the apartment include a balcony, air-conditioning, a satellite TV with a flat screen, memory foam mattresses and satin sheets, their own bathroom with a shower or a bath and a hair drier.
