About the owner: Ruth and I are from Northern England, where we live and work, we love the outdoors all year round, and have found Slovenia to be a very special place, which we try to visit in each season of the year. Our house is very much our second home, We count ourselves incredibly fortunate be able to come here and have been made to feel very welcome by the local people as Planina is very much a community and not just a tourist destination. We like the tremendous diversity that Slovenia has to offer from coast to mountain and everything in between.
Why the Owner Chose Zreče, Slovenia:
There really was no contest, this was the first house we viewed in Slovenia and easily the best. The drive up to Planina is breathtaking. We have everything so close by that we could possibly need, whilst we have the peace and solitude of our unspoilt location we are also situated very well for the necessities of shops, restaurants etc. We love the open plan aspect of the house and over the years we have continually updated so that we have everything that we need.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Because we treat this house as our second home it is an investment that we are very proud of, and we want our guests to feel the same. It always pleases us to hear how much our guests have enjoyed their stay hear because Planina is a special place and we want our guests to have a great holiday.
