About the property

We offer heavenly holiday accommodation in our lovingly restored cottage nestled in the heart of the stunning, emerald Soca Valley. Situated in the quiet village of Ciginj, this lovingly restored cottage is designed to make your holiday the holiday you dreamed of.

With a lounge/kitchen and two en-suite bedrooms, Stone Cottage is the perfect holiday home. Fully equipped for those guests who wish to self cater, and convenient for a number of local bars and restaurants for those who wish to sample the local wines and cuisine.

The cottage is fully furnished to a very high standard and comes complete with linen and towels, including river towels, and a selection of English language books and DVDs, so you only need to bring yourselves. Several past guests have commented on the artwork around the walls, designed to make you feel 'home from home'.

The lounge is beautifully furnished with a door to the terrace, underfloor heating, open plan stairs, TV, radio, CD player, and DVD player.

Integral to the lounge is the kitchen with comfortable dining for four, hob, convector microwave, fridge, storage and all cutlery and crockery, and utensils.

The surrounding area is predominantly wooded hillsides and mountains threaded through by the most beautiful Slovenian crystal water streams and rivers, making the area a perfect destination for either an activity holiday or a peaceful, relaxing break.

The area is famous for walking, hiking, fly fishing, and for the more adventurous guests, kayaking, white water rafting, biking, and paragliding

Close by is one of Slovenia's largest wine producing regions, Goriska Brda, which shares a border with Italy. Guests can leisurely explore the hills and vineyards and sample the produce of the vintners.

About Lisa King

We came here on holiday and never left! I am married to Geoff and we love our life here in this wonderful country. We are British and have made this our 'adopted home' complete with cat.

Lisa King purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Lisa King chose Municipality of Tolmin

We spent years deciding on a place to 'retire' to and found exactly what we were looking for. We bought the house we rented for a week in this peaceful and beautiful village and spent some time renovating the barn on another parcel of land nestled under the hillside. It is a green and peaceful land where the people appreciate everything they have and welcome you as if they have known you for ever. There is always something new and exciting to do and so many things to see and learn. It truly is one of the world's secret special locations.

What makes this cottage unique

Every day we see different views, the mountains from our windows, walking across the fields and if we are feeling very energetic, a climb to a very special church. The views are ever changing with the seasons. Life has a very different meaning here and is to be lived each day with a new sense of wonder. The garden is my own personal favourite, I have planted a rose garden and kiwi fruits run across the roof of the terrace. A perfect spot for that evening glass of something and a barbecue.

Boutique style charm in rustic mountain area

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in July with our three kids and we had the most wonderful time. We were warmly welcomed by the hosts who gave us a personal reception and made us feel right at home. Our kids enjoyed their own floor and bathroom, and so did we. The kids built dams in the creek running through the garden, ate the freshly fallen plums, and played in the garden with toys from a big chest in the garden. From the house we explored the surrounding mountains on foot, enjoyed the huts and restaurants in the area, visited the impressive gorges at Tolmin, went rafting on the Soca river, and made several afternoon trips to the beaches in Izola, Trieste and Grado. Lovely place to stay and definitely worth another visit.

Ein beinahe perfektes rundum-sorglos-Paket.

  • 4 of 5

Dieses kleine Ferienhaus hat unsere Herzen im Sturm erobert.

Nicht nur die idyllische Lage sondern auch der grüne, ruhige Garten, die drei neugierigen, freundlichen Katzen der Gastgeber, die Nähe zu Tolmin, und zum Triglav Nationalpark mit seinen soooo vielen Naturschönheiten haben uns begeistert. Wandern, Faulenzen, Rafting, Paragliding, lokale Märkte, Kultur, usw., usw.


Ein idealer Ausgangspunkt, um Slowenien und die Slowenen sowie die pralle Natur des zu erkunden, zu erleben und zu genießen. Gerade das Ursprüngliche und die netten Menschen hier waren wieder das Sahnehäubchen und ein tolles Erlebnis. Und ganz nebenbei: Wer noch nicht genug hat, Italien (Triest, Venedig) und Österreich sind einen Tagsausflug wert und gute erreichebar...

Wir kommen bestimmt wieder, in dieses wunderbare Urlaubsland!

Unsere Gastgeber haben sich vom ersten bis zum letzten Moment unheimlich nett aber unaufdringlich um uns gekümmert.

Das Haus ist liebevoll gestaltet, individuell und zweckmäßig eingerichtet und sehr sauber. So stellt man sich Ferien vor: das rundum-sorglos-Paket.

Bei allem Lob, einen Kritikpunkt gab es dann leider doch.

Die IInternetverbindung (W-Lan) kommt nur per Adapter vom gegenüberliegenden Haus der Gatgeber. Das geht jedoch zu Lasten der Stabilität / Qualität der Internetverbindung und macht es unnötig langsam. Das habe wir in Slowenien schon besser erlebet, deshalb im Ergebnis leider nur vier von fünf Sternen.

Trotzdem vielen Dank an unsere Gastgeber, die ansonsten die volle Punktzahl verdient hätten!

Owner's Response: Vielen Dank für Ihre glühende Überprüfung. Wir haben über die Wi-Fi gelernt und haben nun einen Booster, der das Problem löst. Vielleicht sehen wir uns eines Tages wieder, ihr seid perfekte Gäste.

Ein schön restauriertes altes Steinhaus in ruhiger Lage. Gemütlich eingerichtet.

  • 5 of 5

Ruhig, gemütlich und sauber. 3 Etagen: Der Wohn- Kochbereich in der unteren Etage hat einen Steinboden mit Flächenheizung. Die Schlafbereiche liegen in der ersten und zweiten Etage auf nicht schallisolierten Dielenböden. Die Matratzen in den Betten mit riesigen Zudecken sind korrekt. Saubere und gute Bettwäsche. Reichlich angenehme Handtücher. Grosszügige Bäder in jeder Schlafetage. Zum Kochen ist alles in guter Qualität vorhanden. Die freundlichen und unaufdringlichen Vermieter wohnen im Nebenhaus. Direkt neben dem Haus, zu dem eine schmale Strasse führt, ist ein Autostellplatz.

einzigartiges Cottage in super Lage des Soca-Tals

  • 5 of 5

Ein sehr schönes Cottage für bis zu 4 Personen sehr schön hergerichtet und schöner rustikaler Ausstattung;

in ruhiger Lage sehr zentral bei Tormin für alle Richtungen des Soca-Tals; Rasenfläche vor der Terasse grenzt an einen Bach (sehr romantisch); die Vermieter wohnen auf der anderen Strassenseite (ein engl. Paar, super nett und zuvorkommend und dennoch zurückhaltend).

Da man in Slowenien in der Regel nur Appartments bekommt, ist dies schon daher etwas besonderes.

Die Aufteilung des Cottage ist auch genial: Erdgeschoss Wohnbereich mit Küchenzeile, 1. OG ein Schlafzimmer mit Bad, 2. OG ein weiteres Schlafzimmer mit Bad.
