Podkoren is one of Slovenia's prettiest mountain villages with lovely alpine architecture set around an attractive square with excellent restaurant just 2km from Kranjska Gora, Slovenia's best known mountain resort. Podkoren House is just moments from the centre and a short walk to the Podkoren side of the Kranjska Gora ski pistes.

On the border with Austria & Italy, Kranjska Gora is the most famous mountain resort in Slovenia. The skiing is the main draw for many people – Kranjska Gora Ski Resort is a superb resort for families and beginner – intermediate level skiers, with pistes easily accessible from Podkoren or the Kranjska Gora side and a range of other winter sports in proximity - cross country skiing, sled dog tours, ice climbing, ski mountaineering & ice skating. With stunning mountain scenery, great access to the Triglav National Park and a host of summer outdoor pursuits it remains very popular all year round. Lake Jasna, a short walk out of the centre of Kranjska Gora offers a stunning place to swim and sunbathe in beautiful mountain scenery. There is a wide range of other ski areas in Slovenia / Italy / Austria within day trip distance from the property.

Walking is one of the main summer attractions with a huge range of beautiful trails to suit all abilities. Running through Podkoren is also a wonderful cycling trail on an old railway track runs 30km from the bottom of the Upper Sava Valley into Italy. Just a few minutes drive or a short walk on the Italian side of the border from Ratece are the stunning Belopeski Lakes (or Laghi di Fusine in Italian). A wonderful place for a walk and to admire the views up to mighty Mangart mountain which lies half in Italy and half in Slovenia. There is also a huge range of mountain biking in the region including a World Cup mountain bike park on the Kranjska Gora ski slopes. There is also a Summer Sledging piste on the ski slopes which is very popular with kids.

The town of Kranjska Gora itself is a pretty alpine affair, very family friendly, with lots of lively restaurants, bars and a couple of swimming pools / spas. Around Kranjska Gora are a number of extremely pretty villages (including Podkoren, Ratece, Mojstrana, Dovje) in idyllic mountain surroundings. There is a regular daily bus service between Podkoren and Kranjska Gora, great for getting to the ski slopes.

Guestbook

April 2010. We had a great Spring break in Podkoren and would definitely recommend the apartments and location to others. Great apartment, beautiful furniture, good service, great location in the centre of Podkoren. Luck with the weather also helped!

We had such an amazing holiday, we travelled from Lake Bled (4* hotel) Hotel Ribno, to Podkoren, onto Austria (Zell am see) in another Ski Chalet, then on to Piran in a Youth Hostel. By far our favourite place was Slovenia and in particular your apartment at Podkoren, we are so glad that we stayed their just outside Krajanska Gora, it was beautiful being in a small village, the pub was great across the road, the children stayed in the apartment playing and we sat outside with a jug of wine !!! We would love to visit again anytime. Our favourite activities were the tobogan run, and white water rafting at Bovec and Vintgar Gorge amongst many wonderful things that we saw and did. By the way - the apartment was lovely and clean and much bigger than we anticipated.
