We loved our stay at Soca House! In fact, it was the best part of our month in Europe. You have a beautiful house, and your friend was so helpful when we arrived. Thanks
The Soca House is really an ideal location for a fantastic holiday.
Clean, beautiful and it looks like it is brand new!
It has a big beautiful garden with a large bbq, 2 big bedrooms and 1 smaller bedroom, a nice kitchen and living room, a very clean bathroom and a sunny terrace with very comfortable chairs.
It is really highly recommended!
We visited in July 2011, a married couple with 2 children (boys age 12 and 8). Soca house is pefrect for a small family. You get the whole bottom floor of this lovely house. The house is secluded and private, with its private driveway directly across from the luminous blue water of the Soca river. Yet, it is only about 10 minutes walk from the house to a decent grocery store and another 5 minutes into the town of Kobarid itself. Kobarid is small. About 30-40 minutes up the road through the mountains and along the river is Bovec, which is the lively center of outdoor activity in the region, including prominently whitewater kayaking and excellent hilwalking/hiking around the small towns surrounding Bovec.
You can get to Bohinj/Bovec by car in about 2.5 hours, but through very small and twisty mountain roads (not good for people prone to car sickneess!). Try the autovlak -- it will be easier on your passengers' nerves, even if it does not actually save much travel time.
Back to the Socahouse. It's well-kept with a nice big yard and adjoining fields. A very pleasant place to sit and watch the clouds roll into the valley in the evening, and roll back out in the morning.
The caretaker, Mojca, and her husband are friendly and helpful.
If you are looking for a quiet place within striking distance of outdoor activity and the beautiful scenery of the Slovene mountains, rivers, valleys, and farms, consider Soca House!
Very nice located holiday home with big garden. The living room/kitchen is a bit small for 6 persons, but for the 2 of us and 2 big dogs it was fine.
Beds were made when we arrived. The house is located just outside Kobarid, very nice and quiet location. You have access to the ground floor. Owners stay in the upper part if they are in Slovenia. They left the day after we arrived.
There is a small path from the house up the hill wich leads to a hiking trail. Historical trail in Kobarid is nearby. Soca river is nearby. There is a lovely little beach just a bit downstream of the kayak entry point (down the stairs to the left through the bushes). Kobarid is about 10 minutes walk from the house. There are some nice restaurants there and a supermarket.
Kayaking on the river is great, but prepare to get wet. Tolmin gorges is beautiful. Don´t go to Javorca. It´s a terrible road to get there and not worth it.
If you like hiking and outdoor activities we would definitely recommend this house.
Our detached house sits on a plateau above the river Soca with beautiful views of the mountains and no neighbours, yet only a 10 minute walk into Kobarid. This is a great place to just sit back, relax and soak in the surroundings.
Kobarid has several well stocked supermarkets and you will find almost anything you may need for your stay.
Kobarid boasts a wealth of excellent restaurants and inexpensive pizza bars, hotel, banks, etc. In fact this area is known as the gourmet region of Slovenia. There is also a Casino for those that feel lucky.
Kobarid is a very quaint town with it own museum which was voted Best European Museum for the year 1993. It prides itself on a rich and vast number of monuments.
For those looking for adventure the area offers various outdoor activities such as paragliding, white water rafting, kayaking, fly fishing, walking, mountain biking and skiing.
You can also visit Venice on a day trip as its only 1 hour & 40 min away.
Golf: The Hit Holidays Golf Club Bovec is situated under the Kanin Mountain in the Soca Valley. The golf course has been made part of the environment and it offers the player both exhilaration and challenges. With five different tee positions, from which the course of the game changes completely.
