“Perfection in the Wilderness” (Tripadvisor)
Reviewed June 26, 2018 for a stay in June 2018
A friend and I stayed here for a few nights while traveling through Slovenia. Alenka communicated with us leading up to our stay ensuring that everything was ready and perfect for us. Her whole family greeted us so warmly and made us feel at home, as well as handing us some delicious food and drink right away!
The glamping hut is simply stunning. It is clear it was build so well with every little detail thought out – a lot of heart went into creating this really special getaway location. There is a fire pit right outside the hut which was lit for us and we cooked some marshmallows and traditional green apples with honey over the fire while we enjoyed some local Slovenian red wine, watching the stars above us.
Alenka then took care to ask what we would like for breakfast, catering for our every need (and my need for copious amounts of coffee). We woke with the sun rising, enjoying the stillness around us and the phenomenal view. I read a book on the hammock outside the hut until our MASSIVE breakfast basket was delivered up to us, including yoghurt with museli and fruit, breads and croissants with various spreads and butter, cheeses and cured meats, and deliciously cooked eggs. As we were devouring our breakfast, a neighbour handed us a whole bunch of freshly picked cherries. It really doesn’t get much better!
The next day we enjoyed some professionally guided yoga over the mountainside, popped champagne in the hot tub, and had a traditionally cooked meal of vegetables and pork, which was slow cooked in the fire all day. Amazing is an understatement!
During the afternoon we visited Ptuj, the oldest town in Slovenia. There are also some beautiful forest hikes to do very close to the glamping hut, as well as the city of Slovenska Bistrica right around the corner. It is a fantastic location – you feel isolated and in the wilderness, yet with a very short drive you have so much to discover.
The views were a 10, the food was a 10, the accommodation and care taken to us was a 10 – the whole holiday couldn’t have been more perfect.
On the way there and the way back we stopped at a few other locations; Lake Bled, Lake Jasna, Soca Valley, and Lake Bohinj. It was really the perfect holiday – we got to see so much, and stay in such a beautiful location, meet some absolutely lovely locals and see so much of the country in such a short amount of time. Alenka treated us so well and we would both recommend this location to everybody who is considering seeing Slovenia! Just go!!!!
