LOCATION

Perched on a plateau and surrounded by luscious woodland, Soca Villa benefits from one of the most breathtaking views of the stunning Soca river against the backdrop of the majestic Julian Alps that we have come across. Soca Villa has been carefully designed to take full advantage of this view and the area has a wonderfully energy about it. With its own 200m long driveway and 10 hectares of gardens, comprising both wild fields and manicured lawns, the house is still just 2km from the beautiful Most na Soci and all its amenities, including a supermarket, bakery, butcher, cafes and restaurants. There is a wide range of ski areas in Slovenia / Italy / Austria within day trip distance from the property. Please click here for a map / guide to these resorts.
