Charming House, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

Situated in a calm village, just down the road from Bovec, this lovely little house was a delight to stay in. Well appointed, comfortable, and roomy, it was a great base to explore the region from. The stunningly beautiful Soca river is right next door, and Italy is a very short drive away.

Loved my time here. Looking forward to returning.

Comfortable and fully modernised house

  • 5 of 5

We used the house as a base for a week's kayaking.

Polovnik Hous was just as described on the web site. It has recently been fully renovated to a high standard.

There is everything you need in the house to be fully independent and it is very comfortable.

The village is quiet but there are bars and restaurants a short distance away. It was a great place to relax in a peaceful location. Although there is satellite TV and an internet connection if you feel the need them.

I would recommend the property as a good base for anyone visiting the area.

Polovnik House is set in the centre of the peaceful village of Srpenica with views over the village square and the stunning Julian Alps beyond and with access to the Soca River in easy walking distance (The village of Srpenica is an access point to the Soca River for rafting and kayaking). In the village there is a restaurant / pizzeria and in the next village (Žaga) a couple of kms away there is another restaurant and convenience store. Circa 10 km South is the lovely historic town of Kobarid which offers some of Slovenia's best restaurants and a fascinating museum to the role of the area as a major front in the first world war. 10 km in the other direction is the attractive resort town of Bovec at the head of the Soca Valley which offers a wide range of shops, some fantastic restaurants and various other amenities, not to mention a pretty main square, lovely buildings and a great atmosphere (Bovec is a magnet for adventure sports enthusiasts which gives the place a vibrant, active, outdoors feel). Bovec is also the location of the gondola up to skiing at Kanin - Sella Nevea which is just 10 minutes drive from the house and has recently been connected to Sella Nevea in Italy to create an excellent cross-border resort (also open in Summer for spectacular walking and mountain biking). There is a huge range of outdoor activities in the area from hiking and mountain biking, which are possible from your doorstep in Srpenica, river pursuits such as rafting, kayaking, canyoning & fly fishing and mountain sports including paragliding and skiing. The area focuses around the ��Emerald������������������������ Soca river which is a remarkably beautiful and unspoilt river valley with its source in the heart of the Triglav National Park (a pristine alpine wilderness with its border just outside Bovec) and running down to the Italian Adriatic. Kobarid is the other main town of interest in the area. Further down the valley is the spectacular Tolminska Korita (Tolmin gorge) and a pretty lake at Most na Soci.
