We are already thinking about 2024 - interested in United States, Canada or Iceland, but also open for other suggestions...
Explore Slovenia, go hiking or just enjoy at home in the pool.
Our house is located in the Gorenjska region, near Škofja Loka, in the countryside.
It's great for daily trips to Ljubljana, lake Bled, lake Bohinj, cave Postojnska cave, Soča river, the seaside...
We have a nice location in the countryside, in a 2h drive, you can be sunbathing at our cost, or be in the southern part of Slovenia. So great location to do day trips and explore our beautiful country.
Nearby you can go hiking in mountains (i.e. Hiking on Soriška planina: https://soriska-planina.si/index-en.html) or see old cities Železniki, Škofja Loka, Kranj, Ljubljana...
We also exchange a car Peugeot 208 2018 or Ford Focus 2017.
Slovenia, with its diverse landscapes, is an attraction in itself. It is the first country in the world that has been, as a whole, declared a green tourist destination. Here, in addition to exceptional and special natural features, you can discover places that are UNESCO World Heritage protected, and surprising stories about love, nobility, salt, and subterranean mysteries.

Below find some ideas for exploring Slovenia, which should not be missed:
SELCA - MAIN HOUSE
In the immediate vicinity of the house, there are truly some very nice hills, Ratitovec (1665 m AMSL), Porezen, Miklavška gora (955 m), Lubnik (1025 m), Blegoš (1562 m). We have walking poles available.
In case you decide to visit Križna gora (10 km from our home, 680 m altitude), it is an indispensable visit to the Pr' Boštjanu restaurant, which is famous for its very good food.
When visiting Slovenia, it is almost a must to see glacier lake Bled, probably the most famous destination in Slovenia.
Bled along the original Bled cream slice (kremna rezina), which has been manufactured by the Hotel Park Park's Confectionery since 1953, is also setting ice cream on the global map of sweet wishes. Already at last year's competition, Bled with cream-flavored cream ranked third in the world's finest ice-cream destinations, and last year, with Sladogled, it climbed to the top of the list of participating destinations.
A bit further there is another beautiful lake, Bohinjsko jezero. A special experience there is also a journey by steam train.
30 kilometers from us is the capital of Slovenia, Ljubljana. The old town and the castle should be placed on the list of things worth viewing.
There are many good restaurants in Ljubljana (most try is Monstera bistro in the old part of the city http://monsterabistro.si/ ).
The best food in Slovenia can be found in the House Franko, whose main cook was declared 2 years ago as the best chef on the world
If you decide to visit the Slovenian coast, take a look at the town of Piran, the Sečovlje saltpans.
BELTINCI - HOLIDAY HOME
Option for non-simultanious exchange is our holiday home in southern Slovenia - Beltinci.

Prekmurje is also ideal for cycling with a number of cycling paths on flat terrain or more advanced over vineyard hills, here you can also enjoy in long walks. It's also very easy to do long cycling tours with kids or if you are not in best condition, because the land is flat.
