About Charles Ram
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.
Charles Ram purchased this House in 2007
Why Charles Ram chose Bovec
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.
What makes this House unique
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.

I would highly recommend this hidden jewel; the scenery is stunning. There are plenty of activities to keep the whole family entertained. The property is a short walk from the centre of this small town comprising bars, restaurants and supermarkets. We thoroughly enjoyed the live entertainment in the square. All in all a memorable stay.
Perfect house, perfect town location
Excellent house in a beautiful center location of Bovec. Modern and with good wifi. All was available at the house.
