              Bovec is a paradise for nature lovers and the outdoor enthusiast. It is a charming and picturesque village nestled below the Julian Alps in the heart of the beautiful Soca Valley. The mountain range on the western side of the valley represents the Italian border. An alpine centre within Slovenia’s famous Triglav National Park, home to many mountains rising to 2500m. Bovec offers a wide variety of tourist activities throughout the year and has many sports agencies for those that like outdoor pursuits.

              Vila Bovec is the perfect base in the heart of this small village. There is a great range of welcoming cafes, bars and restaurants all within 2 minutes walk from the accommodation. Direct flights (including Ryanair, Easyjet, Adria Airlines), run to Trieste (95km) & Venice (175km) in Italy, Klagenfurt (95km, Austria) and Ljubljana (135km, Slovenia)

              Winter Sports: Kanin-Sella Nevea ski resort is accessible from Bovec village and is the only resort in Slovenia that extends above 2000m. Kanin is connected to the Italian resort of Sella Nevea, providing a combined 40km of pistes, with an altitude range of 1140-2300m and an excellent snow record the season can last from December until early May. Facilities on the slopes include ski and boot rental, ski school, restaurants and bars. The Cable car to Kanin mountain runs directly from Bovec village. The possibilities for skiing extends over 3 nations, Italy, Austria and Slovenia. The wider ski area includes 7 villages and towns, not all linked by ski runs, but very close to each other so that it is possible to reach any of the ski resorts in short day trips. Tarvisio (Italy) is the nearest larger ski area, 30mins drive from Bovec. Many of the multi day ski passes include access to other local resorts. Each apartment offers its own large secured storage cupboard for ski/boarding equipment on the ground floor. Other winter sports in the valley include, Ice Climbing, Snowshoeing, Mountaineering, Ski Touring and Sledging.

              Bovec is the adventure sports capital of Slovenia. In particular Bovec and the Soca River are a mecca for watersports including white water rafting, canoeing, kayaking, hydrospeed. Other popular activities run by a number of outdoor agencies in the village include, canyoning, rock climbing, sky diving, paraglyding, trekking. In 2012 Slovenia’s largest zip wire park opened in Bovec – 2.4km long split between 4 wires (soon to be extended).

              Go hiking, mountaineering or rock climbing – there is a vast array of walking opportunities to be had, where mighty mountain peaks weave together with sheep and goat pastures criss-crossed with trails, streams, rivers, and waterfalls to make some wonderful scenery. Walking/Trekking paths throughout this part of Slovenia are well established and well marked. The So?a Valley and the Julian Alps offers something for everyone – from easy valley walks and rougher forest trails to multi-day hut to hut walks, and high-mountain protected routes, some of which require Alpine mountaineering experience. There are many climbing opportunities throughout the soca valley, From the 1000m vertical limestone walls above Log Pod Mangratom to the numerous short sport routes. There are plenty of crags, both protected and unprotected at all grades and for all abilities throughout the valley.

              The Bovec area is interwoven with mountain tracks, trails and roads; a paradise for mountain biking. Numerous biking trails, which as a rule lead across the most beautiful spots of the Bovec area, offer pleasant experiences to both recreational and mountain bikers. Recreational bikers will be carried away by easy, joyfully organised trails with minor elevation changes, while the more experienced will be fascinated by the diverse terrain trails leading through shady forests and nearby rivers and streams. Downhill-Kanin Mountain Bike Park, open 365 days a year, accessible from the Bovec-Kanin cable car, divided into 3 stages, there is something for both the Novice and the extreme downhill riders. If you prefer the roads then from Bovec there are many options. A day ride from Bovec may take you across the Italian and Austrian borders, past the beautiful lakes of Bohinj and Bled (via the mountain train), down the Soca valley or up the highest mountain pass in Slovenia Vrši? (1611 m) and onto Kranjskja Gora.

              Spectacular day trips include driving (or cycling) the high panoramic mountain road that runs from Bovec, through the stunning Trenta Valley and across the Vrsic Pass at 1611m, then down to Kranjska Gora. The terrain is steep and the views over the Triglav National Park are beautiful. You can also drive down the valley and take the car/passenger train through the Triglav mountain range to Lake Bohinj and Lake Bled. The train journey takes 45minutes and is an incredible experience in itself.

               

              Owner info

              About the owner: Mum & Dad, joined forces with eldest son (& family) and middle son to buy the 2 apartments at Vila Bovec.

              Why the Owner Chose Bohinj:
              We bought the apartments back in 2010, shortly after the Vila Bovec development was completed. We had fallen in love with Bovec village during previous holidays to the area, and we decided to buy the two apartments primarily because of the perfect location, a stones throw from the village centre, but with incredible views of the valley and mountains. We all visit the area several times a year - to trek, climb, cycle, ski, explore, eat, drink, rest etc.....Bovec is also a mecca for watersports enthusiasts, with the soca river close by
