Even more dramatic are the Julian Alps and the valley of Trenta in the north west of Slovenia. Those who prefer gentler rolling hills and wine-growing areas can explore the immediate surroundings of Haloze hills. See the guides and maps provided in Hisa Vina for specific details. A comprehensive list of recommended restaurants in the wider area is available at the property.
