|Type (holiday house or apartment):||Holiday home|
|The recently refurbished 4 bedroom self-catering holiday home overlooks a lovely valley. It is ideal for you to relax, savour the view and have a leisurely experience or have an active holiday: you will find excellent walking here and wide variety of local outdoor pursuits, including fishing, rafting, horseriding, skiing etc. As well as offering some of the best walking in the alps it is centrally located in Slovenia so it is a great base for daytrips to Lake Bled, Lake Bohinj, Ljubljana, Maribor, Piran, Postjona Caves, wine tours etc. |
Several village taverns are within close walking distance. You only have a 5 minute walk to the riverside pub that serves excellent fresh trout. Gornji Grad, the nearest town to the house, has a variety of restaurants, including an excellent pizzeria, shops and a bank; and is on the junction of many famous hiking trails. Mozirje is a larger town with many shops and supermarkets and is an easy 14km drive away.
Towering over Mozirje is Golte, a wonderful mountain plateau that offers excellent skiing and walking. The mountain is drivable but is also served by frequent gondolas throughout July and August and the ski season, making the villa a good base for a winter family holiday. The two larger ski resorts of Krvavec and Rogla are only an hour’s drive away.
Nearby attractions include the famous and spectacular valley of Logarska Dolina and the high plateaus of Velika Planina and Golte. The Dreta River flows only 250 meters from the house with fantastic trout fishing (you need to buy a local licence). A number of museums, spas and restaruants are a short drive away. Also nearby is rafting, kayaking, horse riding, skiing (15km), archery and some cycle hire.
The central location and ease of getting to the main A1 motorway makes it a great base for day trips to the capital of Ljubljana, Bled, Bohinj, the famous Postjona caves;the smaller cities of Celje, Maribor and Ptuj; the eastern wine trail and, for a longer day, the coast.
The house comfortably sleeps 8 people in 4 double bedrooms, each with its own clothes storage areas. There is room for 2 more on the sofa bed.
The house's front covered terrace with garden furniture is great for you to relax and take meals and drinks: it is south facing, so you enjoy the sun from dawn till dusk whilst enjoying the outstanding views.
There is a big modern kitchen with its own small dining area; a living room and a dining room that can seat up to 12 people. There is a television with some English channels, many dvds, cds, cd player, books; 2 new bathrooms; a landing with seating area and hall. You will find plenty of information in the house about Slovenia: places to go, things to do etc.
The house has a separate roof terrace from the main bedroom, a large split level garden with trees and there is plenty of room for parking.
There is often a lot of wildlife around the house. Deer are plentiful in the adjacent forest and you can often see them from the house. You can also often watch buzzards and herons flying in front of the terrace. A colony of herons nest in the tall trees next to the Villa (hence its name, Herons' Place).
