Within 4km is the Terme 3000 Thermal Spa, which features 23 indoor and outdoor naturally heated pools, including children's pools and water slides, playground and restaurant. Within 30 minutes drive are 4 other thermal spas which offer a variety of days out for the family and are greatly enjoyed by children, as well as offering a wide variety of relaxing 'treatments' for the adults.

The Prekmurje/Pomurska region
Vino Cottage is situated in the heart of the Goricko nature park in the small village of Suhi Vhr, north east Slovenia.The surrounding area consists of rolling hills, apple farms, vine yards and beautiful traditional Prekmurje farm houses.
Prekmurje is still a relatively undiscovered corner of Slovenia, surrounded on 3 sides by Austria to the north, Hungary to the east and Croatia to the south. Summers are generally hot - spring and autumn weather is usually good but there can be an evening chill - the wood stove will help keep the cottage cosy. Winters can be extremely cold with heavy snow.
The beautiful town of Ptuj is only an hours drive away, and can be reached via the hilltop wine village of Jeruzalem. Day trips into Austria, Hungary and Croatia are a short drive from the cottage. The ski slopes of Maribor are only an hour by car, and in the summer cable car rides into the mountain offer excellent walking and cycling opportunities.
The area is famous for its thermal spas, and the largest of these, Terme 3000 (www.terme3000.si) is only 4kms from the cottage; there are 23 different indoor and outdoor pools and the spa is an excellent day out for children and adults alike. There is also an 18 hole golf course at the spa. There are 4 other spas within an easy 20-30minute drive, all of which offer variations in terms of facilities and treatments.
In the nearby village of Selo you will find the famous chapel of St Nicholas called the ‘Rotunda’, a superb Romanesque rotunda built in the mid-13th century. Also located in Selo is one of the regions best restaurants named ‘K Rotundi’. Here you will be able to sample a wide choice of Prekmurje specialities such as game, fish, and goat and of course the famous ‘bograc’ (the Slovenian version of goulash). There are many other excellent and very reasonable restaurants in close proximity.
The vines of the property are looked after by a respected local winemaker, who runs a Vinotoc nearby where wines can be purchased, and also local food is available and winetastings can be arranged.
The nearby town of Murska Sobota offers a wide variety of shops and a local market, and a large Interspa supermarket has an excellent range of food.

The house was just perfect for my family of 7 children. It has everything my kids and I needed. Therma 3000 is only 5 minutes away, and the food in villages close by is delicious. We took a hike in the woods behind the house and the kids loved it. My kids kids and I really enjoyed our time there. We hope to go back soon and see the other atractions.

"Unbelievable location, stunning views and all amenities included"
Really enjoyed my break to the Cottage, stunning location, Slovenia is a very pretty, friendly and laid back Country that you can easily get lost in and time just stands still.
The food is amazing and the locally produced wines are lovely and sweet.
I would like to thank Nick for his excellent communications before my holiday and during.
I will for sure be going back!
