Mum & Dad, joined forces with eldest son (& family) and middle son to buy the 2 apartments at Vila Bovec.
We bought the apartments back in 2010, shortly after the Vila Bovec development was completed. We had fallen in love with Bovec village during previous holidays to the area, and we decided to buy the two apartments primarily because of the perfect location, a stones throw from the village centre, but with incredible views of the valley and mountains. We all visit the area several times a year - to trek, climb, cycle, ski, explore, eat, drink, rest etc.....Bovec is also a mecca for watersports enthusiasts, with the soca river close by
Tourist Tax/Registration of €2,30 per adult per night (€1,67 for U17, €nil for U7) is payable at reception on checkin, along with €35 end cleaning fee
We spent a week at this apartment, it was clean, spacious and in a great location. Well furnished and equipped
The information prior to our holiday was informative and helpful.
Details of where to collect the key, timing and location map was perfect.
Bovec and the area is beautiful, with lots of activities and lovely walks.
We were all very sad to leave, but look forward to returning soon.
We had a wonderful week in Bovec. The apartment was perfect for us although I would have to say it was very noisy first thing in the morning and last thing at night, however it was great to be so close to the town, supermarket and activity centres. The balcony was perfect and great for family meals and card games in the evening.
We ziplined, went caving, rode horses, canyoned, went white water rafting and walked and explored the surrounding area. We loved Slovenia and would love to go back as a week was just not long enough.
Thank you for introducing us to such a beautiful country.
Stayed 1 week - The apartment is right in town above a bar (not noisy). This meant that we did not really need the car as there is loads to do right in town. The apartment is clean and well appointed, communication with the owner was good and I would recommend this property. Bovec is great for outdoor activities. We did the rafting, canyoning, kayaking and zipwires along with bike hire and walking. We were a familly of 4 with a 10 year old and 12 year old.
If want to get up high - check the ski lift is working before arriving - They are redeveloping it - due to open soon but it has been closed for 2 years
Advantages: Very nice town, with very friendly people. Petrol prices are lower than in Italy. Supermarket is really nearby. Good customer service.
Disadvantages: We need to clean the apartment when we arrived. In the upper apartment (11) in winter time is very cold especially in the bedrooms when it is windy. We used sleeping bags. I think that something should be done with the roof - the total reconstruction as when it was windy you can feel the wind blowing even in the room. The lift to the mountain is not working in Bovec, so you need to use a car and it takes 35 min to get to nearest Italian resort - so prepare to spend additional 100 eur per week on petrol.
I would recommend apartment #3 for winter holidays.
In total my mark is 7,5 out of 10.
We had nearly a week to explore the Bovec area and enjoyed being able to come "home" to our clean, comfortable, and friendly apartment. Justin is very friendly and easy to work with in arranging details, plus gave us a great deal on a coffee maker we accidentally broke. The beds were comfortable, not too hard and not too soft, and there were even a few DVD's and a player we enjoyed one evening. The apartment is right across from a grocery store which was so convenient when we wanted to cook for ourselves after a long day of hiking. It is also close to some wonderful restaurants and local ice cream. We were able to get wifi just down the street and it sounds like SOON there will be wifi in the apartment. Great news! We liked that we could walk down the street and have our pick of any adventure company when it came time to go canyoning...which is awesome...and this area of Slovenia has the bluest/greenest water I've ever seen. There were many activities in this area from the WWI museums to hiking to just sitting and having a coffee at a sidewalk cafe. Best of all were the many friendly people who are not so tired of tourists like some big cities in Europe. We would highly recommend this apartment, Justin, and all the wonderful things Slovenia has to offer. Deb & Tim. Lake Elmo, MN
Stayed in the upper apartment for a week at the end of May. The apartment was as described on the website and is very spacious and well equipped. It was spotlessly clean and very well maintained. As we were staying with friends, we also had access to the lower apartment which was of the same high standard. The huge balcony is a great place for outdoor dining, relaxing, etc. It has tremendous views over the surrounding mountains. The apartments are situated centrally in the town for dining, shopping, etc. We were there to enjoy all the walks that the area has to offer. Slovenian people are very friendly making our holiday more enjoyable. We would thoroughly recommend staying at these apartments in Bovec.

There are plenty of crags, both protected and unprotected at all grades and for all abilities throughout the valley.
The Bovec area is interwoven with mountain tracks, trails and roads; a paradise for mountain biking. Numerous biking trails, which as a rule lead across the most beautiful spots of the Bovec area, offer pleasant experiences to both recreational and mountain bikers. Recreational bikers will be carried away by easy, joyfully organised trails with minor elevation changes, while the more experienced will be fascinated by the diverse terrain trails leading through shady forests and nearby rivers and streams.
