We stayed at this beautiful character house, full of uniqueness. It was exactly how Linda described in the advert, but is even better in real life, creaking floorboards and stone walls. The house is huge, with lots of rooms for people to sit together. It is situated on the main road through the village, and gives great views from many of the windows. The balcony has lovely views across the tops of houses built into the mountains, but as our group was large we could not all sit on that balcony comfortably together at the same time, but plenty of room for us all all sit outside and BBQ in the courtyard. The village is quiet, with a fantastic pizzeria opposite where you can park your cars. A very well stocked supermarket is just across the road, and not to mention the fantastic LABRCA restaurant we all walked to, overlooking the river. There is some peak morning traffic, but nothing like living in the city. In fact the morning church bells were louder, but we loved the chimes, and found them rather endearing. The house has been very well thought out in terms of contrasting the old with the new, which you can see the owner has considered preservation throughout. The dining room with floor lights and solid stone wall and original beams, has a huge dining table, where all 15 can sit and eat together. It has a log burner in, which would be amazing when lit, but with temperatures of well over 30 degrees we did not need it. We appreciated the huge bathrooms as well. The recycling takes some getting used to. You have to separate your plastics, paper and glass and food, and take it to the recycling bins daily, which are just the bottom of the house. This was something we were not used to, but these are the rules in Slovenia. A fantastic place to stay for two or three families travelling together, would fully recommend, as well as Linda being a great host.

We had a very good time in the fantastic Soca valley. The house is tastefully decorated, very clean and fully functional. A really great place for people who don’t mind some street noise. We‘d come back

Tolmin is well located in Slovenia, for hikes in the national park, rafting on the Soca river, fly fishing and many outdoor activities. The house is vast, on three floors, with plenty of space for everyone, and very good equipment. It is just next to the road going from Kovarid to Most Na Soci. There can be some traffic at certain hours of the day. We did not see any scorpions :-)

Great place and a great stay. Easy access to Tolmin and surrounding area. Great base for our fishing trip really enjoyed our stay... pizza across the road very nice. Thanks for a great stay.

Steffano Aug 2018

il soggiorno è stato all'altezza delle aspettative. abbiamo apprezzato spazi assolutamente adeguati agli ospiti (noi vi abbiamo soggiornato in 9) e gli accessori presenti (in particolare le 2 lavasciuga e tutto quanto presente nella cucina) oltre alla coerenza con le informazioni presenti sul sito. La casa si sviluppa su 3 piani. La zona è estremamente tranquilla e ideale per una vacanza rilassante. Obbligatorio per ogni spostamento un mezzo proprio. ideale per visitare le diverse attrazioni naturalistiche della valle della "Soca". Nonostante le distanze non siano eccessive i trasferimenti verso la Slovenia centrale (es. Lubiana) sono penalizzati da una viabilità curata ma a volte tortuosa con tempi di percorrenza significativi. Ottima la soluzione dell'auto check-in.

Great location for exploring a beautiful part of a beautiful country. Right on a main through street, so don't expect super quiet during the day, though this isn't an issue at night. Nice neighborhood and all of the places we wanted to go were easily accessible (Tolmin, Kobarid, Brda, etc). Large space - we had eight and it was more than enough room. Linda was also very accommodating with last minute changes. Would stay again.

My wife and friend stayed at this amazing house. It was much bigger than what we needed but that’s all that we could find at the time mainly because Metal Days Festival was on. We were going mainly for the festival but also to see the gorge, swim in the the Soća river and to eat loads of pizza. The house is next to the main road which can be noisey but l think the festival created the influx of traffic. Local taxi driver, Simon, helped us every day getting to and from the festival but to walk it was only 30-40mins. The house is well maintained and bathrooms and beds were very good. The pizza shop across the road were very inviting and the pizzas were awesome. The views from out front the house are amazing. The view of the mountains were something we will never forget and the locals helped us whenever we needed. Our next door neighbour even offered to take us to the festival one day. Very hospitable. Linda was easy to deal with and emails were easy to understand. Whilst the house was more than we needed for 3 people it was certainly an amazing experience and loved Volče. Thank you Linda and hopefully we can return soon. Palf, Katie and Aaron
