Dechtice is a village on the foot of Small Carpathians, already settled in the Neo Lithic Age. The first written record dates back to 1258. During its rich history, it was destroyed by the Turks in 1663. In 1863 it was destroyed again by fire. The locals were involved in agriculture, mainly viniculture. Since the 16th century the village had the most beautiful vineyards of the domain. Later pottery flourished - the Habans produced here until World War I the known Habanian pottery. Close to Dechtice, the ruins of a monastery and the church of St Catherine are located. Count Erdödy established here in 1618 a Franciscan monastery. On the road from Dechtice to Dobra Voda, once a paper mill was located (1771 - 85).
