Our neighborhood:

Our holiday apartment is set in an intensely traditional region known as Imenska Gorca, just  a kilometer from the Croatian border in south eastern Slovenia.  The very name conjures up images of dragons and sorcery and yet bathe in the warm waters of the local spa and hob knob with the golfing and tennis community and you couldn't be  further from the truth.  This magical blend of welcoming people, stunning countryside and positive energy will ensure you return to your native shores a richer and happier person.

About us:

We are Elaine and John an English couple who retired early to escape the rat race of Britain, not that we don't love our country.  Having spent 4 years living in Spain we visited Slovenia on the advise of some hitch hikers and basically never went back.  Slovenia is special beyond belief and we have been made to feel unconditionably welcome by a unique race of people who are more old fashionably English than most English.  It has to be experienced to be believed and as a place to holiday Slovenia has to rank among one of the most precious countries on the planet.
