We have just stayed at Vila Podvin on our second visit to Slovenia. This time we used it as an overnight stop from the Croatian coast. We treated ourselves to 4 courses off the chefs special menu. The meal was a joy. Each course was like being in the Masterchef kitchen without John and Greg, but having beautiful plates of... More

We are coming occasionally to this restaurant off the beaten track because of "chef Uroš", who is a guarantee for a good lunch or dinner. It's particularly nice in good weather because of the seating in its garden, with tables on the grass. Last time we took only three courses from the 8 course menu; it was excell and filling... More

I visited Vila Podvin with a couple of friends on a special occasion called Teden restavracij (a week dedicated to the Slovenian restaurants). They served two menus, one with meat and one with fish. I had great expectations, especially because I once attended a culinary course with the Chef Uroš Štefelin, who showed me his philosophy and care about great... More

Very nice food, service, great garden extremely friendly staff. The room was quite comfortable and clean. Calm neighbourhood and fresh air. Everyone speaks great english. Some negative things to mention: it was a bit pricy and the room is a bit dark. Without car things are a bit far.

This was the last night of our 7 nights in Slovenia and it was a very nice ending. Rooms are well furnished, comfortable, clean and quiet. The building is the converted stables of the Vila Podvin so architecturally it is interesting. We would be delighted to stay here again.

Here is everything just perfect. The owner - chef Uroš with his team is trying hard to satisfy the guests. Food is excellent. Ingredients for breakfast are all natural - bio and from farms in the surrounding.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are located on a picturesque 14th century Grad Podvin Estate only 2 km from the medieval town of Radovljica, 2 km from Slovenia's most important pilgrimage sight - Brezje, 7 km from Bled lake and the Triglav National Park, 35 km from the nation's capital Ljubljana and 20 km from Ljubljana International Airport. Vila Podvin has been completely renovated in 2007. Nowadays it offers accommodation in 7 comfortable rooms and an a la carte restaurant, run by one of Slovenia's best Chefs - Uros Stefelin. Uros finds challenges in discovering forgotten local ingredients, getting to know them and create new dishes in his own, unique way. With modern technics and creativity he transforms traditional dishes into culinary delights of Slovene Nouvelle Cuisine. Our restaurant is decorated with local Slovene souvenirs where each tells a tale of its past and the wealth of Slovenian Cultural heritage. We wish to add to this collection by sharing our culinary souvenirs with you; visit us, taste the dishes and when leaving, leave with good memories and the recipes of the dishes you have tasted. Wedding ceremonies under the clear blue skies, garden parties under the stars will add an unforgettable flair to your event. Guests are welcome to relax in our tented garden, try the house grown vegetables, plant your own seeds, learn how to garden and partake in one of the culinary workshops where under chef Uros's skilled eye you will learn how to prepare some of cooking creations. You may also choose Vila Podvin as the location for children's birthday party, take the time to enjoy in horseback riding along the countryside and learn more about Slovenia by taking the trail of Slovenian souvenirs that are on display and available to be purchased in Vila Podvin. ... more   less
