“Experience summer and winter in one holiday”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2012 for a stay in April 2011
people found this review helpful

Slovenia is an amazing country and the Soca valley is breathtaking. Bovec was the perfect place to be based and Vila Bovec was right in the heart of the village, a few minutes walk away from everything that the village has to offer. We visited in the middle of April without any expectations to ski, but the slopes were open and the skies were blue so we hired equipment and spent 2 days skiing between Slovenia and Italy, down the long runs leading into to the village at Sella Nevea. The snow was very soft towards the bottom in Italy – to be expected at this time of year. Also be warned – the last lift from Sella Nevea back to the summit of Kanin runs at 3:20pm in April, we missed it by 2mins!!! This left us stranded in Italy resulting in a 45minute, €50 taxi ride back to Bovec (many thanks to reception for arranging this!).

We spent other days hiking in the mountains and through the Soca Valley to some of the local waterfalls, and Kayaking down the beautiful Soca river from Bovec to Kobarid. Some of the hiking in the Triglav, Mangart and Kanin ranges looks incredible, routes are well established and the area seems well set up for multi day treks with many large mountain lodges catering for hikers/climbers.

We were so impressed with the weather which enabled us to split our time between a winter and summer holiday - skiing at 2200m, before Kayaking and walking in 15-20c sunshine down in the valley.

Finally, we loved the apartment – it was bright, modern, spacious, comfortable and as already mentioned perfectly located. Despite being in the centre of the village there was no noise. It was clean and had all the facilities and equipment that you could need from a self catered apartment. There is a small supermarket and an excellent bakery right on the doorstep.

A great holiday.
