We fell in love with this property at first sight. Tucked away on the slopes of an alpine meadow overlooking the mountains and the beautiful village of Livek, the chalet is an idyllic, relaxing hideaway. Close to the historic town of Kobarid, the Triglav National Park and the famous So?a River (and also just 2km from the Italian border), its the perfect place to get away from it all, or to go out and explore.

We've done our best to make the Retreat as comfortable as possible while still retaining that traditional feel. A king size double bed, with pine walls and shutters on all windows, modern kitchen, comfy sofa and Slovenian wood burning stove downstairs.

Wake up every morning in your own little retreat, step out onto the balcony and soak up the views. Right outside your front door is some of the best and most picturesque hillwalking in the Julian Alps, renowned for the low number of visitors as much as their beauty.

Its difficult to describe in just a few words so we've included a video and lots more photos on our own website.

The Goriska region

The Soca valley is famous throughout Slovenia for offering the country's most jaw dropping scenery and truly picture-postcard views. It is also renowned in kayaking circles for offering some of the best white water sports in Europe. Nearby Bovec (20 minutes) has become a thriving outdoor activities town with almost every imaginable sport available. In summer taking advantage of the beautiful Soca river and in Winter the ski resort Kanin, which has just doubled in size with the addition of a lift connecting it to the Italian resort on the other side of the mountain.

In the other direction you can drive or cycle the Fifty Bend Road to Kranjska Gora or journey to the village of Trenta to see the source of the Soca river.

The area is steeped in history, many of the First World War trench lines ran through the mountains nearby and there is a museum in Kobarid (15 minutes) offering a touching local insight into the period.

An excellent day trip is to travel south to see Slovenia's Karst region with its massive underground caves, vineyards and the world famous Lipizaner stud farm - an absolute must for any equestrian enthusiast and a wonderful day out even if you're not.


This really is a great location for a peaceful getaway - somewhere to recharge. However, you also have the option to explore some of Slovenia's loveliest areas. You are right on the edge of the Triglav National Park and the Soca River. Plus, you are also right on the border with Italy, with its contrasting styles and atmosphere.

It is a walkers paradise, plus there is fishing and water rafting in the Soca and loads of history to explore around Kobarid. What more can we say? Except, come, of course!

Skiers can enjoy the reliable snow at the Kanin ski centre. Now linked to the Italian side, this offers 30km of piste at up to 2300m.
