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
