Appartamenti Antea Gradisca are the result of a two year restoration project, that I started in 2015 together with my brother.
The restored 19th century house used for the apartments originally belonged to my family’s great grandaunt, born around 1850, whose name was Tea. From a play on words with regard to Tea’s name we created “Aunt Tea….Antea”. Of course, aunt Tea passed away long before I was born. She didn’t have children of her own, but raised my grandmother as her own daughter. True to the memories of my grandmother, I learned that Tea's husband was a painter, and that she loved to welcome artists into her home. As such, by the start of the of 1900s aunt Tea used to let rooms in her house and, after her, my grandmother did the same. Continuing this family tradition, my brother and I have transformed Tea’s house into guest apartments for short and long-stay visitors.
After two years of comprehensive renovations, our house today looks like this; Before the works the house looked like this (it was indeed a very daunting task to renovate the original house!):
The two ground floor apartments are rentable from a minimum of two days, up to a few months.
Appartamenti Antea Gradisca are also ideal for those tourists wishing to visit regional fairs and events, such as Festival èStoria, Cantine Aperte, Chocofest, Gusti di Frontiera, as well as for those professionals travelling in the area for business, who may need to stay in Gradisca for a longer period of time.
All tourists staying in my apartments, whether travelling by car, bicycle or public transport, will be able to enjoy the wide range of activities that the area offers; from sports and trekking to culture events and wine & food tasting.
Professionals that are visiting Gradisca, or who are visiting the nearby areas of Villesse, Gorizia and Monfalcone, will also find in my apartments a comfortable and relaxing place in which to stay.
The newly refurbished apartments have been fitted to the best specifications and are tastefully furnished. The building itself is modern and welcoming, with special attention paid to the comfort of guests and the design details of each apartment. The two apartments are divided into a lounge/kitchen area (with a double sofa-bed), a bedroom (with a double bed) and a bathroom. As such, each apartment is able to host up to four people. A seating area with umbrellas can also be enjoyed on the house’s sunny terrace. In addition, there is a car park within the premises and bike ranks are also available for the use of all guests.
All rooms are fully furnished and with the following:

The costal cities of Trieste and Grado can be reached by car in half an hour, while the hills of Carso and Collio are nearby, and there are good road and public transport links to all major nature and culture attractions in the region.
Gradisca is also one of the stops along the cycle ALPE ADRIA TRAIL. The historic town centre, most of which is inside a pedestrian zone surrounded by public parks, is renowned for its elegant cafes and restaurants where it is possible to enjoy drinks, ice cream and culinary specialities from the local cucine.
Venetian and Austro-Hungarian influences remain today evident in the architecture and traditions of the town, fused in the unique life and spirit of the area. More information on the history of Gradisca is available at www.conteadigradisca.it
I was born in Gradisca and, after achieving my degree in foreign languages at the University of Udine, I moved to Austria, where I lived and worked for several years.
After moving back to Italy I rediscovered the delights of my region, Friuli Venezia Giulia and my birth town, and fell in love with both. I have since worked as an agent for local visitors to the area.
As such, I will be very happy to welcome you to Appartamenti Antea Gradisca and to offer my professional advice to make your stay as enjoyable as possible.
I also speak fluent German and very good English, if Italian is not your first language.
