Central Slovenia and Ljubljana is an utter goldmine for fantastic and often traditional Slovenian cuisine. You will find old fashioned inns and tourist farms out in rural Slovenia offering the freshest ingredients prepared to make a variety of tasty and hearty dishes. With a heady mixture of influences, the Slovenian cuisine can consist of anything from bean stew with ham hock, potato ravioli, clear beef broth with carrots and noodles to locally made Prosciutto, layered cakes and dandelion salads. Although the focus is definitely on meat and potato based meals, vegetarians should not be put off renting Slovenia accommodation. You can try the spinach and cheese pastries, comforting vegetable soups, pizza, gnocchi and mushroom ravioli. Vegetarians will not feel excluded whilst self-catering in Slovenia - everyone is invited to the feast!
At the very heart of this gorgeous country is a vibrant and charming capital city with a colorful history, plenty to see and extremely welcoming locals. Welcome to Ljubljana - the ideal base for your Slovenia accommodation. Not only attractive and fascinating but cheap, you can fulfil all of your dreams whilst self-catering here without it hurting your wallet. Culture here is rife with a range of beautiful architectural styles - from Baroque to Renaissance and Secession in the historic Old Town. Museums and galleries invite you to enjoy Slovenia from the perspective of artists, whilst the atmosphere of the town is pretty as a picture itself. Relax along the city's romantic waterways, take lunch outside in Mediterranean style or visit festive markets and exciting events year-round.
With such fantastic landscapes on offer, it is no surprise that Slovenia also makes a wonderful backdrop for all types of sports and physical activities. Soaring mountains invite hikers, climbers and cyclists to navigate their steep terrain for the reward of a mind blowing panorama over the lush valleys, blue lakes and craggy hills below. Unspoiled and pure, here nature reigns supreme. Those with an eye for adventure won’t be caught short of things to do in Slovenia - simply rent your Slovenia apartments near one of 10,000 kilometers of hiking trails, or rent a bike and discover the landscape on or off road.
Water lovers will adore Slovenia, where lakes, rivers, thermal spas and swimming pools are in abundance. This is without even mentioning the sea, which offers countless possibilities for leisure and recreation. Even if you would prefer to stay dry, a river cruise or fishing trip would be highly recommended. In terms of official numbers, there are 48 recorded swimming areas in Slovenia - 18 of which are natural bathing areas. Visit a lake (Bled or Bohinj) and jump right in for a cool and refreshing sensation. Alternatively, rent a villa on the Slovenian coast and spend your days in the temperate Adriatic Sea.
Walk through the old city core and discover the traces left by Kamnik’s vibrant history. Treat yourself to some time off on the green pastures of Velika Planina and take some refreshment at the source of the Kamniska Bistrica. Visit Budnar’s Museum House and knead your own bread. Take a walk through the Arboretum Volcji Potok, take time to recuperate and boost your energy in the Natural Healing Grove in Tunjice, or test yourself at a game of golf just a stone’s throw away, at Golf Arboretum.
