It’s been 18 years since the plans for construction of the so called Brda Spa, which would include a hotel, swimming pools, shops and a 45-metre-high tower, were set up. On Friday, however, an investor has been finally confirmed after Italian Private Value Capital Management fund signed a letter of intent to make the project a reality.
At the signing the letter of intent at the Vipolže Villa, the Mayor of Brda stated that the municipality’s commitment is now to take care of changing the land use of the property, which spans over six hectares between the villages of Medana and Fojana. The property is still owned by two private owners with whom the municipality has a sale agreement.
The news of a “spa” centre in Goriška Brda was met with mixed responses from the public. While some support the project as a good development plan, others are worried that it would have a negative impact on picturesque cultural landscape of Brda, sometimes called Slovenian Tuscany.
