Hi Dolores & Malcolm,

thank you for 3 fantastic weeks in Soca House. The Apartment was in very good condition and very comfortable equipped. The air condition helps a lot during the time with 38 degrees outside.

It was absolutely fantastic to enjoy the big garden, the perfect view on the mountains and the beautiful surroundings. I'm sure that we will come back.

Thank you for your support and the nice evening in the restaurant.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house in a fantastic location. My husband and my 2 children (15 and 12) stayed for a week in this beautiful house in Kobarid. We wanted to be near the Soca river for canyoning/white water rafting but were concerned about the river being too cold to swim in. This house is very near the Nadiza river - perfect for swimming, sun bathing etc. and is also a 10 min walk from the nearest supermarket and only 15 mins walk to Kobarid centre. What a gem - lovely square in town with several bars/restaurants and the best ice cream according to my son! Soca house itself is surrounded by beautiful views and a lovely garden. Inside it's lovely, very comfortable and tastefully decorated. All in all a delightful place to stay. If I could make one suggestion - it would be nice to have 4 bikes to go into the centre. Would definitely recommend to friends/family.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review, we are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. In the past we have had bikes, but unfortunately they were not looked after and resulting in us having to pay for substantial repairs.

Perfect for a family with several children

  • 5 of 5

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!

Soca house

  • 4 of 5

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.
