This is a beautifully converted farm house on the edge of a wood at the foot of a mountain. It has gorgeous views and the rooms are spacious and tastefully furnished. The position is wonderful with quick and easy access to the major tourist attrcations. At the same time, it is wonderfully quiet and quite secluded. Patrick is full of helpful advice and is very accomodating. I highly recommend this cottage to families! We had a great time!
very central for hiking and watersport
the waterfall behind the house and the riverrafting in Kobarid or the car train to Bohinj should not be missed when staying there.
Ciginj is a small village with one pizzeria Ti with good service and a good price quality.
a great base for hiking and watersport
good location in a village, close to Tolmin - and Kobarid.
The waterfall a few hundreds meters above the house - and the Pizzeria should not be missed either.
Do not miss the auto train to visit the other side of the mountains Bohinij - a great experience just in the next village.
Lovely Family Holiday
It was difficult to convince the owners of the Farmhouse to rent it to us in the winter season..and yes, the house was a bit cold. But all the other aspects of our stay made up for this shortcoming. We were 4 adults and two children. The house was comfortable and well situated. We were able to cross over and back form the Julian alps to the Italian Alps. We even spent a couple of days skiing. It was fun getting wood for the woodburning stove, and nice to warm ourselves at the end of a tiring days tour. We would certainly recommend staying at the Slovenian Farmhouse in Ciginj. Its certain to be even more wonderful during the gorgeous Slovenian summer months.
Dear Ms Kraus,
We're very pleased that you all enjoyed your stay at the Slovenian Farmhouse in Ciginj. We hope we might have the chance to host your group again at a convenient time in the near future - prerhaps in the summer season.
Cozy and Quaint
Excellent Family House
We stayed at the Traditional Farmhouse in April. We are a couple with three boys and one girl aged 7-14. This was the perfect vacation home for us. We were able to BBQ and walk in the forest just behind the house. We discovered brooks and creaks, and even a lovely waterfall. The view of the Julian Alps was breath taking. Cozy and quaint in the little hamlet of Ciginj, all of Slovenia was easily accessible to us. We particularly enjoyed cycling from village to village and the adventure sports and swimming on the Soca River.
Thank you very much for being our guests and we hope that you will return again soon to Slovenia.
Leuke rustige ligging, maar dringend aan opfrissing toe.
Bij het openen van de voordeur komt een doordringende geur je tegemoet, blijkbaar na een overstroming eerder dit jaar. In de keukenkasten (met scheve planken van het vocht) groeien schimmels, op de sofa - waar je moeilijk uitraakt eenmaal gezeten, door de zo goed als afwezige vering - kun je de dagelijkse productie van de houtwormen in de plafondbalken volgen, een stopcontact in de living is zonder bescherming, de dvd speler "lekt' elektriciteit en er is geen andere aansluiting, zodat de televisie nutteloos staat te wezen. De lavabo op de eerste verdieping is stuk en het toilet artisanaal hersteld. Als kers op de taart was het huis niet gepoetst bij onze aankomst, wat na de interventie van lieve ondernemende buren kon worden opgelost. De eigenaar is hiervan op de hoogte en stelde wel "een of andere vorm van compensatie' voor.
Zelfs na de poetsbeurt, blijft de woning echter rijk aan spinnenwebben en hoor je 's nachts op de tweede verdieping ongedierte lopen tussen dak en plafond. Op deze verdieping zijn er ook geen gordijnen aanwezig thv. de dakramen, wat vervelend kan zijn. Anderzijds hadden wij (gelukkig) fantastisch weer, waardoor we niet veel in de woning waren.
Ook de eerder beschreven geur op het gelijkvloers blijft na het poetsen penetrant aanwezig, waardoor wij in het huis continu met open voordeur en brandende geur kaars leefden.
Samengevat heeft deze woning mi. een grondige opfrisbeurt nodig vooraleer het opnieuw op de verhuurmarkt wordt gebracht.
Ciginj is a small, quiet village nestling below the wooded hillsides of the Soca Valley. There is a small, friendly local bar and pizzeria within walking distance of the farm house. Ciginj is conveniently situated just 5 kms from Tolmin to the North where guests can find Supermarkets, Banks, Bars, and Restaurants and active sports centers (as well as sports equipment rental). To the South is the University town of Nova Gorica on the Italian border. Here there is a large shopping precinct with food stores, clothes and shoe shops.
Local events -On site:
The house is right beside walking, cycling, mountain biking, pizzeria/bar. It is possible to walk to Italy on the trail behind the house where there is a trattoria with great food and amazing views of the Soca Valley and Venice.
15 minutes drive away:
Close to the house you will find a swimming, kayaking, white water rafting, fishing, paragliding, horse riding and hiking and numerous shops, bars and restaurants. Wine tasting in nearby Goriza Brdo is a popular day out.
45 minutes drive away:
Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj are easily accessible by car train (30 mins)
Postonja Caves, Skojan Caves and the Lipizaner Horse Farm (45 mins)
Beaches: Italian (45 mins), Slovenian (75 mins)
Italy: Venice (2 hours); Cividale de Fruili (medieval town with Sunday flea market) 30 minutes. Trieste airport (50 minutes).
Austria: There is amazing drive through the mountains that will take you to Villach in 90 minutes. You can return by another spectacular mountain pass or by car train from Bohinj.
The Soca Valley is famous for its adventure activities. Paragliding, Hang Gliding, River Rafting, Canyoning and Sky Diving are just a few of the adrenallin thrills on offer here. However, many visitors are content to hike in Triglav National Park, tour the wineries of Goriza Brda or use the area as a base for exploring the rest of the country. There is a car train which goes to Lake Bled and Lake Bohinj in thirty minutes. If you want to go further afield there is a stunning drive over mountain passes into Austria and Italy is a short drive away.
The neighboring district Goriza Brdo has numerous wineries and is a twenty minute drive away. Vipava is another excellent place to sample wine but this is further away - 40 minutes. Several tour operators run wine tasting tours from Tolmin
The nearest beaches are in Italy up the coast from Trieste (45 mins to 1 hour). It is also possible to drive to the Slovenian coast in about 90 minutes. However, most locals just use the Soca River banks as their beach and there are numerous other rivers and lakes in the area which are good for swimming.
The world famous Lipicia Horse Farm is located a 45 minute drive away and is a must for any horse lover. It is possible to combine this with a trip to the UNESCO world heritage site of the Skojan Caves - one of the world's largest caves complete with a river running through the bottom.
