About The Owner

I'm a father of a 6-year-old girl and there is nothing in the world I love more than spending time with her. I very much enjoy good food and wine, and seldom shy away from having a good party. Sports are an absolute must in my life: kite surfing, snowboarding, water skiing... the faster the better!

I have travelled extensively throughout Europe, first to study and then for work. I lived in 8 different countries for the past 20 years. Switzerland is my favourite, and I hope to go back and live there again some day. As for cities, nothing beats the multi-cultural vibe of London or the parties in Barcelona.

As a host, I strive to make my guests' experience as smooth and care free as possible. I hope you will find my accommodation units pleasant and comfortable. But also I want to assure you that you can count on me if you need something.

I look forward to meeting you!

The Owner purchased this house in 1992

Why The Owner chose Plovanija

This property is part of a larger estate which has been in the family for generations. The house was knocked down to the ground and the original stone was used to rebuild it from scratch. It is very calm and quiet. It has an aura of tradition combined with some of the perks of modernity: fast internet connection, dish washers, satellite TV.

What makes this house unique

The house has a garden and park that guests are welcome to use. On these 2 acres of pristine land, guests can play mini golf, boule or use the swings and trampoline. My previous guests have nicknamed it 'the house for tourists who don't like tourists'.

Sehr empfehlenswert!

  • 5 of 5

Sehr professioneller und zuverlässiger Vermieter! Hat auf Fragen sehr zeitnah geantwortet und war sehr darum besorgt, dass alles passt ohne aufdringlich zu sein!

Wohnbereich und Essbereich räumlich getrennt in zwei verschiedenen Gebäuden (Entfernung 2 Meter). Alles sehr, sehr sauber, Handtücher in ausreichender Zahl,

Ist genauso aus wie auf den Bildern. Ruhige Lage.

Wir kommen wieder! Vielen Dank!
