The Savinjska region
The villa is in a beautiful natural valley ideal for either relaxing or exploring: there is a wide variety of great walks in the valley and adjacent mountains.
Nearby attractions include the famous and spectacular valley of Logarska Dolina and the high plateaus of Velika Planina and Golte. The Dreta river flows only 200 metres from the house with good trout fishing (you may need a licence).
A number of museums, spas and restaruants are a short drive away. Also nearby is rafting, kayaking, horse riding, skiing (15km) and some cycle hire.
The central location makes a great base for day trips to the capital of Ljubljana, the famous Postjona caves, the smaller cities of Celje, Maribor and Ptuj, the eastern wine trail and, for a longer day, the coast.
Savinjsko is well known in Slovenia for is spectular alpine scenery and is very popular amongst local people, however, it still relatively 'undiscovered' by foreign travel companies.
Herons' Place is ideal for large families. It is in a quiet valley, surrounded by mountains and is excellent for walking, hiking, skiing, rafting, horse riding etc. or taking it easy in the garden. There are many areas of local interest, including outstandingly beautiful valleys, interesting museums, great value restaurants, towns and spas. You will find plenty of information available in the house about Slovenia: places to go and things to do.You typically see much wildlife around the house, including deer, buzzards and herons. You only have a 5 minute walk to the riverside pub that serves excellent fresh trout, and a 15 minute walk to the nearest small supermarket. The cost of living in Slovenia is exceptionally reasonable making eating out very affordable.
There are several taverns within 1.5km walking distance. The friendly riverside tavern only 700m away from the house serves fresh trout.
At 3km away, Gornji Grad is the nearest town to the house. It is small but has a variety of restaurants, including an excellent pizzeria, shops and a bank; and is on the intersection of many famous hiking trails. Mozirje is a larger town with many shops and supermarkets and is an easy 14km drive away.
Towering over Mozirje is Golte, a wonderful mountain plateau that offers excellent skiing and hiking. The mountain is drivable but is also served by frequent alpine gondolas throughout July and August and the ski season.
