Mary's Apartment - Sleeps 4 guests

The Apartments have all been named after Ernest Hemingway's wives and this one bedroom apartment (45sqm) has been named after his forth wife Mary for no other reason than my aunt Mary likes to stay in this room..

This apartment consists of a large bedroom, which has a queen sized bed with antique bedside tables. There is an antique wardrobe and chest of drawers to store you clothes.

There is an alcove in the room where the living area is situated, consisting of a double sofa bed, and an antique wardrobe.

On the other side of the room is a reading nook beside the wood burning stove. The chair is very comfortable for sitting and reading to a child on your lap…or so say my guests. There is also a dresser with a bookcase on stop for additional storage.

The en-suite bathroom is also spacious and has an extra large shower area (90 x 120) and a heated towel rail.

The Kitchen / Dining area is located just outside this room.

The Kitchen has a 4 ring electric hob, fridge/freezer, microwave oven, kettle, toaster, Bodum French press and Bialetti coffee makers and cooking equipment and crockery for four people. There is also a set of plastic tableware suitable for children or picnics.

The Dining Table seats four people and is located next to the window.

The apartment is located at the front part of first (middle) floor of the house. It is accessed via a hallway off of the Upstairs Terrace. It has its own private lockable door. In this hallway is a place for storing muddy boots or shoes.

About this location

The Slovenian Littoral Region

Kobarid was immortalised in Ernest Hemingway's Farewell to Arms as a charming amicable little town. Not much has changed over the years but the main square is now filled with lively bars and great restaurants and in the summer numerous music festivals take place here.

Kobarid is the perfect base for exploring the Soca Valley particularly for those who don't want to drive. There are numerous walks that can be done right from the house, from the challenging peak of Krn to the gentle stroll up to the Roman Village or along the banks of the Soca River. There are many adventure sport companies in the village offering canyoning, rafting, horse back riding, kayaking and paragliding.

Kobarid is ideally situated for exploring the Upper Part of the Soca Valley. There are endless possibilities of things to do if you enjoy nature and outdoor activities. There are also a number of local museums and World War I sites, which one can visit.

Outdoor Activities

Hiking - Triglav National Park borders the village on two sides and there are a number of hikes, ranging from easy to difficult which can be done right from town. The Walk of Peace also runs through the village and from this trail you can walk up to Bovec or down to Tolmin. The tourist office has complete list of the hundreds of walks possible in the area.

Swimming - locals like to head to the "beach" on the Najda River which is warmed by natural hot springs with supposed healing qualities. Its 5km outside of town on the road to Italy and there is a great bar serving food and drinks. For the brave, its possible to swim in the Soca just past the Napoleon Bridge. A bit furher a field, the best swimming spot on the Soca can be found down valley in the pretty village of Kanal. The River is very shallow on the banks here so it is a suitable place to take children. There is also an excellent bakery/cafe here. For proper swimming there is an aqua park in Bovec and another one in Lake Bohinj.

Rafting/Kayaking - The Soca River is one of two rivers in Slovenia where rafting is permitted. This river has played host to the kayaking world championship several times. There are numerous companies offering guided trips on the river. Some rafting tours are suitable for small children.

Fishing - The Soca River is world renowned for its fly fishing. But, permits are expensive and guides are recommended to find the best locations for the fish.

Paragliding - The Soca Valley has idyllic weather conditions for this sport and there are a number of take-off points in the valley, including Stol which overlooks Kobarid. There is a regular taxi service available to take you to the sites.

Canyoning - For the adventurous canyoning trips can be taken. But, they are not for the faint hearted as there are lots of jumping into rivers from high ledges.

Horseback Riding - there are several stables in the area to rent horses with a guide.

Mountain Biking - many of the trails are open to mountain bikes and range from the gentle to the extreme.

Museums in Town

Kobarid Museum - is dedicated to the history of World War I in the Soca Valley. I found it fascinating and its a good way to spend a rainy day. Next door is a free exhibition on the Walk of Peace.

Planika Cheese Factory - this is a popular tour for families and the free cheese at the end of the tour is a nice bonus.

Wine Tasting

In the nearby province of Fruili in Italy there are a hundreds of vineyards one can visit.

But, I would recommend a trip to Goriza Brda to sample the local Slovenian wines, which are surprisingly good from here. The area is also spectacularly beautiful, with many quaint fortress villages. There are also many good restaurants.

Casino's

Gambling is legal in Slovenia. The Aurora Casino is located just outside of town and there are cabarets in the evening for those not interested gambling.

Kobarid

Excursions

Lake Bohinj / Bled - There is a car train from Most na Soci which takes 30 minutes to arrive at the scenic Lake Bohinj which is suitable for swimming. Bled is a further 20 minutes on the train and is considered the most beautiful spot in Slovenia. This makes for a wonderful day out.

Trieste - the city itself is a matter of personal taste but there are some great beaches up the coast if you wish to go for a swim in the sea.

Cividale de Fruili - is a charming medieval town a twenty minute drive from Kobarid. There is a fantastic flea market here on the 4th Sunday of the month. And there is a pastry shop in San Pietro de Navistone which is well worth visiting.

Koper/Piran - it takes about 2 hours to drive down to the Slovenian coast on the motorway and it can often be crowded down there in the summer. But, Koper and Piran are beautiful places to visit.

Skojan Caves / Lipica Horse Farm - On the way to the coast you can visit the Unesco World Heritage site, the Skojan Caves. The caves are amazing and there is a huge river that runs below them. Nearby is the Lipica Horse farm where the famous Lippazzaner Horses are bred. There ia good restaurant here and its possible to see the horses without entering the farm as many brood mares are in the paddocks just outside. Just don't forget to bring a bag of carrots or apples.

Postonja Caves and Castle - These are the most famous caves in Slovenia and there is a train which takes you deep in the cave network. The caves are bigger than those at Skojan but I think less dramatic. They do music performances in the main cave in the summer. Nearby is the castle which has a museum.

Ljubljana - the capital is well worth a visit. The river Sava runs through its small city centre and its banks are lined with cafes and restaurants. There is a castle on top of a hill which gives amazing views of the city and there are a number of interesting museums which one can visit. During the summer there are numerous free musical festivals taking place.
