Much to my childrens amusement I am now only a couple of years away from getting my free London bus pass! I am married with three children and have lived and worked in London for the last 38 years. My family and I love adventure and so living in the city gives us a big incentive to get out and enjoy the wonderful places the world has to offer, I fell in love with Bovec whilst riding my motorcycle back to London from Dubrovnik in 2006. It was immediately obvious after only being in Bovec and the Soca valley for a day, it was a very special and secret place with warm friendly people. I bought a house here 3 months later in the centre of town. I spent a couple of long years renovating it and now I come here regularly with my wife and three children.

Having a house in the mountains in Slovenia is a privilege. The country has so much charm and it is still a relative secret compared to its busy neighbours: Austria, Italy and Switzerland. Bovec is a town that has everything except crowds of people, it is not a place to stay if you enjoy queueing and hate fresh air! Apart from its stunning location, Bovec seems to tick every box. Real ease of access. 3 budget airports - 1.5 - 2 hrs away. Cheap car hire available at the airports. The town and area caters for every interest and activity: skiing, kayaking. white water rafting, canyoning, canoeing, hiking, biking, paragliding. Warm, friendly and helpful people. Great local wines and delicious local food. A grass airstrip on the edge of town for flying, micro lighting and gliding.
Chalet Alpina is beautiful house... It is a wonderful house to stay in. We have a big family sitting room at the top, great space for relaxing after a hard day in the local restaurants. The house has a self contained first floor apartment/bedrooms which offers great space for teenage kids or couples wanting a little privacy from the hubbub of the main party. There is lots of flexabilty with the accommodation.
We had a wonderful time. Slovenia is the most fantastic place and nobody wanted to go home, especially my 11-year-old son who was crazy about all the outdoor activities. Your house was also fantastic and suited us very well and the weather was warm and sunny. We will definitely be back one day.... Maren .L. Denmark

The area is so lovely that the Walt Disney corporation chose it for the location of the recent Narnia films.
