A delight! Location was good and parking was available. The kitchen was well equipped. The living space was very comfortable and the whole design offered a welcoming ambience. We would go again which is the best recommendation we can give. The only problem was the mattress in the second double bedroom which we found very uncomfortable. Slovenia is such a beautiful country. There were some amazingly picturesque walks, waterfalls, and history for those who are interested. Plenty of water sports available and rivers to bathe and swim in. All Slovenians seem to be able to speak English fluently and are such kind and considerate people. You can drive to the capital, to the coast, to Italy and to Austria all within 2 hours - what more can you ask for from a location - something for everyone! Try it..... you won't regret it!
