Nigel & Yvette Charman are married with four children 2 boys and 2 girls we are both extremely active and have a border collie dog Noah. We love the outdoor life and enjoy Mountain walking, Mountain biking, Golf and fresh air ! We have been renovating the house for 4 years and will be ready to welcome our first guests in June 2014. Nigel is a Bathroom specialist plumber so we have 3 luxurious Bath/shower rooms with plenty of hot water. Yvette is a fitness instructor teaching aqu-airobics, circuit training, and specialises in G.P. referrals and enjoys Pilates. We consider our house to be in a prime location, an ideal place to enjoy the mountains, valleys, and river sports here on our doorstep. The Nadiza is just a 20 min walk and offers a perfect secluded spot to enjoy a paddle swim or sun.
Owner purchased this House in 2009
Why Owner chose Borjana
We originally started looking in the Socca Valley, After seeing a tv programme which showed an English couple who had found a farm house in Slovenia which needed totally renovating. We came out to have a look for ourselves in February 2009 and were so taken with both the location the house and it's magnificent views we made an offer there and then and the rest is history, Which is amazing as it had to tick some boxes : 1 it had to be 1 hour from the airport no more 2 : It had to have swimming close by. 3 : It had to have a golf course no more than 30 minutes away. 4 : It had to be detached with stunning views. 5 : It had to be in our budget. 6 : It had to be in the mountains with rivers offering rafting and kayaking, and fishing for my sons.
What makes this House unique
The property benefits from not being overlooked, we are at the end of a lane/track 1of 5 houses one being the local bar at the bottom of the hill. We enjoy the panoramic views and overwhelming tranquility and the slow pace of local Slovenian life mainly forestry work as we are surrounded by deciduous forests. The central heating is log burning so you can sit back and watch the natural fire in the cooler months but you will need to keep popping those logs in every couple of hours.

Views to die for
An incredibly spacious and well designed house in a beautiful character rich Slovenian village. The lovely wood throughout the property leant a huge amount of charm, however we spent most of the time glued to the windows! The views from the kitchen and kitchen table into the balcony and the forested hills opposite and then down the valley to kobarid are mind blowing. We spent a long time watching the changing light dance over the forests. The night skies are free of light pollution so star gazing a must here too..accompanied by the sounds of the cicadas. The view from the master bathroom is equally mind blowing..the best bathroom ever!! That bath!
Well equipped and comfortable throughout. The only thing we missed was an outside light for the outside downstairs table on the ground floor for late evening dining.
A great spot to investigate the local area and endless possibilities for amazing hikes.
Couldn't recommend enough.
Fabulous holiday for activities and scenery
The property is beautifully restored with bags of character but plenty of modern comforts and bathrooms. Idyllic quiet location with stunning views and loads of activities and places of interest nearby. Loved swimming in the Nadiza river and white water rafting in the Soca!
Owner couldn't be more helpful, will definitely stay again.
Property and location was as described on website. Perfect location, well equipped,clean and comfortable . Fantastic drive from Trieste airport to the property. Nigel was very helpful and prompt with response to all queries. .
Supermarkets, banks , restaurants and coffee shops all close by. Amazing views, fantastic swimming in the river. Lovely drives to all towns close by- Kobarid, Tolmin, Bovec, Kanal. If you fancy Italian pizza and ice cream pop over to Italy to Cividale de Fruilli for lunch.
Would throughly recommend this property. Can not wait to go back.
Nice, well maintained, excellent and quiet location!
The house is nicely situated in a very quiet location. Very well maintained and really well equipped. Excellent kitchen, balcony and terrace. Very comfortable beds and linen. Absolutely clean! There are some excellent restaurants in about 10min drive. The view is amazing! Can only recommend it!
Comfortable - clean - beautifull surrounding
We spent a beautifull week in this comfortable and clean house with 4 adults and 4 children. The house is situated in a very calm location with amazing view on the mountains. Evening time on the terrace was very relaxing. The Nadiza river is good for swimming and refreshing (comfortable temperature in summer), but asks a steep walking descent and ascend. Other swimming locations are also available at 5 minutes car drive. The nearby town of Kobarid offers everything you need. We would surely recommend the house to friends. Communication with Nigel was very easy.
