Such a beautiful village in a gorgeous part of Slovenia. The view of the village or from it is totally worth it. If you happen to be in this part of Slovenia, definitely make sure you have time to stop there for an hour.

Stopped and walked through the village, it didn’t take long. The views were great and the old streets and buildings lovely. However personally not a lot happening here, two little shops open with not a lot on offer. Has so much untapped potential, we felt...More

Small historic village in Brda, in an area with many vineyards. The village is situated on a hill and there are great views of the surrounding countryside. One can also taste wine and olive oil. Worth a visit!

This charming walled village must have been intimidating to invaders in days of old, but it will only take you about 30 minutes to wander around the entire place, even allowing for time to poke your head into the few art galleries and shops or...More

I live in Slovenia. But I am sure you can find place in Nova Gorica or Tolmin od Idrija to stay. It's not so far away. It depends on what you plan to visit. Even capital Ljubljana is not so far away.
