About Andy and Julia
After 20 years with a European job with a lot of traveling I found Slovenia was an unexplored gem. My wife also fell in love with the countryside, the warm summers and the friendly people so we bought the house just after Slovenia joined the EU. We have never regretted it
Andy and Julia purchased this Villa in 2004
Why Andy and Julia chose Tolmin
This was a large property crying out for modernisation. It took almost 6 years to complete the project which was a lot of fun. So now we have a modern equipped house in a traditional Farmhouse style. The beamed top-floor louge with the orginal barn doors is stunning. Since we arrived, so have local Restaurants and supermarkets ,such as Aldi (Hofer) have arrived that now open on Sundays. This is very useful if you arrive late on a Saturday night! You can get pizza until 11:00 pm in Most na Soci.
What makes this Villa unique
The house is in a quiet valley with access to the Mountains (Bovec, Cerkno, Kirn). The Soca valley is the center of extreme water sports down the River Soca. Surrounded by Forested Mountains rising to over 9000 feet (Mount Triglav) the area is breathtakingly beautiful! Traveling down the Soca valley to Brda is the wine-region which has a Tuscan "feel" as well as producing excellent wine. Traveling further afield is Venice (2 hours), Ljubliana, the Postojna Caves are all within two hours. Bovec and Cerkno Ski Centres are only one hour away. Our spacious house faces South so you can have sun throughout the day.

enjoyable stay at Klavze 20, SLovenia
The property was well maintained, and well furnished in all aspects needed by 10 guests. There were 3 public areas which different groups could use without getting on top of one another. The bedrooms were very comfortable and spacious, 2 of them with en-suite. The pool was a feature which all the geusts enjoyed especially the children. There were 2 areas outside where you could eat and entertain. If one area was in the sun the other was in the shade. The neighbour was the agent for the property and was very helpful.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay there. The time was too short. The countryside was beautiful in the Julian Alps and there was plenty to do to keep youngsters and oldsters engaged and occupied.
The owner of the property was very helpful in answering questions and giving information. Definitely a place to revisit.
Thank you for your kind summary. We do hope you will return soon.

Large and spacious, and well positioned for exploring the Soca Valley
Had a wonderful week’s stay. The house had everything we needed. Very handy to be opposite the local train station - under an hour from Lake Bled - and near the Motorail stop of Most na Soci. So much to do in the area, we’d have lived another week.
Was a fantastic house! Thoroughly enjoyed it! A lot bigger in person and has great space for everyone. There were 10 of us and it almost didn't feel like it as the bedroom are spaced out perfect as well as having multiple lounging areas. We even managed to dip into the pool in October! Perfect for us, not too far from the town of Tolmin where the local Aldi and Mercater were, great for top up on food and wine. We even managed to go Kayaking on Lake Bohinj in October too which was about 90mins away by car. You could get the train also but we already had hired cars for the journeys.
Fantastic place to stay!
Large, beautiful farmhouse in a lovely setting
Great holiday house. Lovely area and country. Everything you could need is there. The pool is great. The owner keeps you well informed before travelling. Grew at support from neighbours who look after the house. Amazing holiday
It has been a great pleasure helping you arrange your holiday. I am delighted that the holiday met your expectation.
I cannot rate this villa highly enough - we had a truly wonderful time. The villa itself is beautiful - so lovingly restored. It is immaculately clean and has so much space. There were 10 of us plus a toddler and at no point did we feel on top of each other.
The facilities (pool, BBQ, sun loungers, kitchen gadgets) were all great and the location is close to perfection. The owners were so helpful in providing information prior to our stay and the hosts next door were incredibly helpful and kind throughout the week.
It really is our happy place and we are already planning our return!
Beautiful, spacious house, excellent location
Very accurate description, if anything the house is even better in real life! Extremely clean, fantastic facilities, loads of space and lovely location. The owner was very prompt, helpful and delightful to deal with. The neighbours who are the point of contact for the guests out there are really great too! We were given lots of information about local restaurants, travel by train to lakes, directions to nearby gorge, waterfall and activities etc. Did as much as we could and still enjoyed time by the pool. White water rafting was a first for us!
Highly, highly recommended!!!
Thank you. Your review makes renting the Villa so worthwhile.
