Štatenberg manor

Štatenberg Manor is a two-storey Baroque manor near the village of Makole in Slovenia. Dating from around 1695, the manor is one of about 500 castles, manors and ruins in Slovenia. It was last used as a tourist facility in 1983. Since then it was largely abandoned, until 2011 when the local Tourist Association of Makole (in the absence of any other manager) started small renovations in parts of the manor. Facilities now include the local tourist office, six large rooms for workshops and a restaurant. The manor is still in need of care and attention –  but its charming setting within natural parkland makes it a promising venue for concerts, weddings and gatherings. The local community is very excited at the idea of this Learning Village being held at Štatenberg Manor, seeing it as a sign of life slowly returning to the manor. 

This gathering builds on a rich history of coming together. The Art of Hosting sprang out of such a gathering in 2002 at Castle Borl, not far from Štatenberg Manor. Castle Borl was little more than a ruin itself, which didn’t stop groups continuing to meet for many years. 

Štatenberg accommodation

The Štatenberg venue has 60 beds (in 17 very basic rooms), and a beautiful meadow that will double as a temporary camping site. If you want to book a bed/room at Štatenberg Manor, do this ASAP as there may be more interest than beds available.
