Our house is set in the small and quiet hamlet of Planina na Pohorju with good access from Ljubljana and Slovenia's second city Maribor.

By arrangement through the local tourist office in Zrece it is possible to combine your walk/cycle ride with a visit to one of the many farms where you can enjoy a banquet of lovingly prepared home cooked food, local produce and snaps.
The area is totally unspoilt and rural in nature perfectly suited to peace and relaxation and sightseeing in general. The climate in Summer generally gives above average hours of sunshine and the mountain location ensures that it is never too hot.

Ruth and I are from Northern England, where we live and work, we love the outdoors all year round, and have found Slovenia to be a very special place, which we try to visit in each season of the year. Our house is very much our second home, We count ourselves incredibly fortunate be able to come here and have been made to feel very welcome by the local people as Planina is very much a community and not just a tourist destination. We like the tremendous diversity that Slovenia has to offer from coast to mountain and everything in between.
Clive Tucker purchased this house in 2007
There really was no contest, this was the first house we viewed in Slovenia and easily the best. The drive up to Planina is breathtaking. We have everything so close by that we could possibly need, whilst we have the peace and solitude of our unspoilt location we are also situated very well for the necessities of shops, restaurants etc. We love the open plan aspect of the house and over the years we have continually updated so that we have everything that we need.
Because we treat this house as our second home it is an investment that we are very proud of, and we want our guests to feel the same. It always pleases us to hear how much our guests have enjoyed their stay hear because Planina is a special place and we want our guests to have a great holiday.
A lovely property with well appointed facilities, very clean and tidy. Excellent kitchen, large kitchen dinner, good living room and with TV and DVD player and wifi with a super shower room. Light airy bedrooms and a fabulous view from the balcony. So peaceful and picturesque just the sound of a cow bell. We had a wonderful holiday and thoroughly enjoyed beautiful Slovenia and this lovely property which we recommend.
We had fabulous two week family vacation (2 + 2 teens) in Jan 2014. This was our second visit. We got this "charge" and feelings what you want from holiday.This impressions created by different aspects which is directly connected with place you are, In this case it goes in complex, the house location, its condition, nature around, facilities near by, It makes you staying very comfortable and let you feel relaxed. Additionaly to above we got the exhaustive support from owners (Clive and Ruth) and didn't have any problem. We can recommend this property for active vacation.
Our common opinion we'll definitely get back!
Thanks again to Clive and Ruth.
Just back from a wonderful week in the mountains. The house is spacious and comfortable, very clean and every bit as good as it looks in the pictures (not always the case with some rental properties). There were six adults in our group and the owners kindly let us bring our dog along too. Facilities were very good - well stocked kitchen, with the luxury of fresh spring water straight from the tap, great shower and comfortable, warm beds.
The weather wasn't always on our side but the large choice of DVD's kept us entertained when rain scuppered our plans on a few afternoons.
Rogla ski resort is close by and we enjoyed a few days on the slopes, there are also some great walks to do right from the house. Lots of info and suggestions for days out are also provided.
We found the owners to be very helpful with quick responses to any queries both before and during our stay. Would definitely recommend this property.
We had a superb stay in Slovenia. The house is really nice, bigger than expected, clean and up-to-date. Good facilities for cooking. Plenty to do locally, nature, culture, whatever you want really. We were here for skiing, excellent snow and plenty of it. The resort is very easy to get to, only 15 minutes by car and all facilities are there. Almost everyone speaks English in Slovenia. Would recommend this for family weeks away, as a base for skiing, walking in mountains or exploring Slovenia.
Our stay at Clive & Ruth's was just perfect.
The place is fabulous, halfway between Rogla ski and spa town Zrece. The house has all the amenities for a pleasant stay, short or long. Is as be at home.
We could enjoy four wonderful days of fun family skiing (Rogla is a perfect resort for families, with slopes for all levels) followed by relax in thermal pools and local dinner (as we say in Spain) "good, nice and cheap".
If anyone still doubts about rent this house, stop!. It is a safe bet.
The only problem we have found is no available dates to return soon.
Nuestra estancia en casa de Clive & Ruth fué simplemente perfecta. El lugar es fabuloso, a medio camino entre la estación de esquí de Rogla y el pueblo termal de Zrece. La casa dispone de todas las comodidades para disfrutar de una estancia muy agradable. Es como estar en casa. Pudimos disfrutar de 4 maravillosas jornadas de ski (Rogla es una estación perfecta para familias, con pistas para todos los niveles) seguidas de piscinas termales y cena en locales buenos, bonitos y baratos.
Si alguien todavía duda si alquilar o no esta casa, que deje de hacerlo. Es una apuesta segura.
We spent wonderful week (two families: 4 adults and 3 young kids) in Clive&Ruth's house in Planina on Pohorje.
Communication with the owners: excellent. We have not only received detailed info on booking but as well as the updates before the trip. Always promptly responding to my questions (which I had: I am that kind of a person).
Place: perfect. Small and quiet village "5-15 minutes from everything". If you go skiing - it will take 15 easy-drive mins; If you go to spa - again 15 mins; If you want domestic restaurant - 5 mins. Hiking paths starts near the house. So - a bit of everything!
House: Excellent. Everything we needed + extra bonus: neighbor dog! The fact he was constantly visiting us made us "feel at home". Perfect view, good fireplace, nice collection of DVD movies, X-box....
Skiing: excellent for families. Combination of slopes that makes "something for everybody": Intersport ski school is very good and affordable; ski pass pretty affordable; even drinks on the slops are affordable.
Spa: Very good. Zre?e has decades of spa tradition - it's not the best place but it is a really decent place.
Surrounding: Pohorje is very nice mountain, good to be there any time of the year; Neighboring cities are all small and very nice: Zrece, Konjice, Ptuj... But at the same time you'll find everything you need.
Conclusion: We will be back. Maybe will try some other season, as well.
