This was my second stay at Reka Hisa and my girl friend and I will be returning whenever we can. Clive and Myrna really make this a home away from home and took care of us. They both offer endless amounts of help on making your holiday the best you've ever had. They can offer very reasonably priced tame/extreme sports for all levels of exhillarating fun. Activiteis include cycling, canoeing, canyoning and white water rafting. I have tried many of them and and all were memorable and not just because of the adrenaline rush but because this country is so beautiful that I can see no better way of exploring the scenery than by canoe/kayak.
The accomodation deserves 5 stars its spotlessly clean and has beautiful views down a river. Night time is quiet (there are only 4 rooms and and family room) and you can only hear the river, if you leave you window open. Sleeping will never be a problem here, as you'll be too tired from all the fresh air and activities. Dinner time is very special. When I first heard you all sit around the same table to eat each night I wasn't sure if I would like that as both myself and my partner are fairly shy. I was wrong as the atomosphere Clive, Myrna and Patrick (their huge friendly great dane) makes it a great way to end the day and share tips and tell each other about what you did during the day. Clives cooking is amazing, i'm pretty fussy, and I loved it all. The meals were beyond english resturant standard.
I hired a car this time, but you really dont need to as clive will pick you up from the airport/ train stain and if you do any of the activities you get picked up from the house. The main tourist hubs, lake Bled and Bohinj are also on a bus route which stops 5 mins walk from the house. If you've been to Slovenia before like me then I would recommend hiring a car as there excellent road systems means that you can get anywhere in Slovenia pretty much in under 3 hours. Recommended day trips are to the coast (Piran) 2hours, Skojan caves 1.5 hours; Bovec over the vnic mountain pass 2 hours and 5 more to stop to take pictures.
