Cottage overview - owner's description
Apple Tree Cottage is situated in a quiet valley of the green river Krka (pronounced Ker-ka) in Slovenia. It offers an enviable degree of seclusion in a private orchard surrounded by fragrant grass fields. The cottage is located 10-minutes walk from Krska Vas village at the beginning of the river Krka.
The views from the cottage reach the edge of the forest behind the surrounding grassland. The oak trees in the courtyard shelter the front terrace on hot summer days. The private orchard with the garden at the back of the house inspires peaceful ambience for warm summer evenings. The property includes an organic vegetable garden with a variety of seasonal vegetables for the benefit of the guests. Two sitting areas in the front of the house and in the garden at the back offer a choice of leisure time and outdoor dining. The local villages offer a number of authentic restaurants and traditional inns. The neighbouring hills lend themselves for unspoiled walking tours, mushroom picking, and mountain biking and cycling trips.
Krka, “the green river of Dolenjska” is an admired fishing destination. The rivers streams and waterfalls attract several kayaking and canoeing enthusiasts. Instructor-led kayaking tours are available. Further downstream health spas of Dolenjske and Smarjeske Toplice offer a range health treatments and public swimming pools filled with mineral spring water.

This property is a delightful cottage situated in a quiet yet accessable area of Slovenia. You will find everything you need within close proximity and yet the whole experience is wonderfully rural. Slovenia is a truly fascinating and beautiful country - almost anyone, regardless of taste, will find something here: everything you could wish to visit is within a couple of hours drive of the cottage. If you are prepared to strike out on foot, however, there is plenty to occupy you within a five or ten mile radius. You'll find the owners, Igor, Natasa and their family, helpful, polite and unobtrusive. They'll go out of their way to help but will not smother you with unwanted attention. Their cottage is clean, well-equipped and spacious. Overall, this is a highly recommended holiday let with a perfect location in a truly beautiful country.
This holiday was good value for money. Especially if you come with family or you can share the cost among 8 of you. The description of the property was accurate and we got very similar quality to what we expected. The location is beautiful and the owners were very friendly! We found the maps and guide books very helpful. The house was very well equipped. A slightly bigger dishwasher could be very welcomed! We did lots of cycling nearby. We also visited Ljubjana and Bled. It would have been nice to have a tourist map of the cottage surroundings area as the tourist path signs are not consistent enough. Maybe owners could note that to the authorities. However we would certainly recommend the cottage to a friend! Thank you!
The location of this property is as tranquil as it gets, yet is in easy reach of the main highways. The property is beautifully finished to a high standard throughout and will not dissappoint. We were impressed by the thought that had gone into providing everything you could need except some clothes to wear and some food to put in the fridge. This really is more than a `holiday cottage`, it is a spacious rural home that allows you to sample Slovenian life in supreme comfort.
