Casa Di Volče - 7 bedroomed house, summer and winter activities- Soca Valley - Volče - Tolmin - Slovenia - walk to the festivals

Casa di Volče is perfectly located close to Tolmin. The location is ideal for summer and winter activities, including paragliding. .The house is located in a Slovenia village of Volče -within 2/3 minutes walk to a supermarket, and 100m from pub and fabulous pizza restaurant, and just 1.2km walking to the Soca Valley crystal clear, turquoise river, where you can picnic, sunbathe and enjoy the many water sports on offer. We did rafting and had great fun.  This is also where many of the Tolmin music festivals take place, so you can indeed walk to these festivals from the house, such as reggae, dance, rock, all taking place in July and August. Paragliding is a big attraction of the area. The area is also fabulous for fishing.
 
And equally superbly located for skiing , you are just over - 35km from the Kanin Sella Nevea ski resort, which is the Italian/Slovenian border, or if you prefer, again just over half hour is the Cerkno ski resort, so you have a choice of two ski resorts.

Testimonials

Sept 2019

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. Marc - UK

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. (Uli - Germany)

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 :-) Eduord (France)

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.

September 2018

Beautiful area, a bit away from the city life, but all within easy reach by car. Dreamlike mountains, lakes and rivers. We were there with 13 men and loved both the accommodation and the surroundings. There is a lot to do (rafting, canyoning, Mautainbiken, downhill driving, hiking, swimming, etc.). It was certainly not the last holiday in Slovenia. The accommodation is highly recommended! And communication with the owners was great! Thank you Michael (GERMANY)

July 2018

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

August 2018

the living room lived up to expectations. we enjoyed spaces that were absolutely adequate for our guests (we stayed there for 9) and the accessories (in particular the 2 washer-dryers and everything in the kitchen) as well as consistency with the information on the site. The house is spread over 3 floors. The area is extremely quiet and ideal for a relaxing holiday. Mandatory for each trip a private vehicle. ideal for visiting the different naturalistic attractions of the "Soca" valley. Despite the distances are not excessive, transfers to central Slovenia (eg Ljubljana) are penalized by a careful but sometimes winding road system with significant journey times. Excellent self-check-in solution. Stefano (Italy)

Perfect place to stay for various reasons - Location is superb, stunning views, quiet & very relaxing. Only a short drive , or if your feeling energetic a longer walk to Tolmin, which has plenty of shops, bars & places to eat. Lots of activities in the surrounding area, paragliding, kayaking, rafting & picturesque scenery all around for walking. House itself has been recently renovated, plenty of room for families, or larger parties. Lovely wood burning stove in the lounge, and a wood burning oven in the kitchen. Lots of facilities to keep everyone happy.....WiFi and a hot tub in the courtyard Family from St Ives

It was perfect meeting from Linda. We decided to come to Slovenia at night, I've found this home and Linda prepared all for us immediately. I was in Slovenia many many times, Volce is perfect location between Tolmin and Kobarid and more calm place to stay there. House is very big with a lot of bathrooms (didn't count them :)). Very clean and we had everything for cooking. Anastasia Engleson (Russia)

January 2017

I stayed in this villa with 15 others and we all fitted perfectly. The house was beautiful and the rooms where spacious and luxurious. Everyone I went with had a great time also. There is a pizza restaurant just across the road which provides delicious food and it is a very short drive to the nearest town which has watersports and supermarkets. During my stay, we went on numerous walks to the local river, the river soča. The water is so blue and the walk isn't too long. Nearby, there is also many other beautiful lakes,rivers and waterfalls which is unmissable. It is around 30 minutes drive to a ski resort which is very useful for skiers. The house's hot tub is perfect for a contrast to the cold weather and it is also amazing in the summer. Overall the house is perfect and I would highly recommend it to everyone 4 families from Cambridge UK

Das Haus ist liebevoll und mit allem was das Herz begehrt eingerichtet! Linda kümmert sich einfach um alles und ist zu jeder Tageszeit erreichbar. Von Volce aus ist man in 10 Minuten an der Soca und kann von dort aus auch sämtliche Outdooraktivitäten planen. Die Nachbarn sind leider etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig, sie sind aber keineswegs unfreundlich Dorina - Germany (group of 15 doctors)

Linda's home is very comfortable and spacious for large groups of up to 15. Very well situated near the river and Tolmin Gorge with a great local pizzeria! The only issue was traffic noise as it is located right on the main road of Volce. Otherwise lovely home in a lovely setting! Seema (UK)

August 2017

La maison est dans une situation très agréable pour découvrir ce coin de slovenie, et la vallée enchanteresse de la soca, et des randonnées très sympa et superbes. La maison est confortable, bien équipée, très pratique. Une étoile en moins est liée à la proximité de la route, passante , même si la maison est bien isolée. Family from France
