Located in Bovec, Hiša Vrtnic (Rose Cottage) offers comfortable, spacious & modern accommodation with easy access by foot to all the amenities of central Bovec (bars / restaurants / shops / adventure - activity providers etc) and a few minutes’ from the stunning River Soča, considered to be one of the most beautiful parts of Slovenia. The Soča river offers the opportunity for fishingkayaking, white water rafting, or just relaxing on the banks. The surrounding mountains are in general fantastic for walking; they also offer scope for great mountain biking, canyoning, paragliding as well as skiing. The ski resort Kanin on the Italian border is one of Slovenia’s best with good lift infrastructure and snow record. A second ski area Sella Nevea (Italy) adjoins Kanin and offers good beginner - intermediate level skiing; the one ski pass covers both sides of the mountain. It is a 10 minute drive from the house to the Gondola, which is also open in the Summer giving easy access to breathtaking high altitude walking and mountain biking. There is a wide range of other ski areas in Slovenia / Italy / Austria within day trip distance from the property. Please click here for a map / guide to these resorts.
