Peaceful, idyllic retreat

We enjoyed a peaceful week in this fantastic retreat. The house is just beautiful, unique, and charming. Spacious, comfortable, well-equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed quiet mornings, meals, and views on the outside dining patio. The surrounding rolling hills provide ample opportunity for mountain biking, running, walking. Ptuj, the oldest town in Slovenia, is very pretty and worth a visit. Since we were there during the summer heat, we would sightsee during the morning and cool off in a Terme park during the afternoon. Ptuj’s waterpark is new, very nice, but crowded - to be expected. We enjoyed the Terme Zrece swimming complex, as well; its’ a short drive from the house. We also visited the Museum of Evolution in Krapina, Croatia, at the site where a significant discovery of Neanderthal man was found. The town does not offer much, but the museum is impressive, very well done. We thoroughly enjoyed the fantastic Pekel (Hell’s) Cave, 5km north of nearby Sempeter. These cool caverns were an inviting respite from the August heat and surprisingly uncrowded. The tour guide was fantastic. The Roman Necropolis in Sempeter was an interesting site, as the guide gave us an energetic, entertaining and informative tour. So, we really learned about the mythological inspired motifs. We highly recommend this wonderful vacation home and thank Clive and Ruth for sharing it. Karen, Brian & family.
