Holiday Rental House
Polovnik House is a charming 3 bedroom chalet located on the main square of the peaceful riverside village of Srpenica midway between Bovec & Kobarid (circa 10km to each) in the heart of the stunning Soca Valley. The house is beautifully renovated to an excellent standard combining many carefully restored original features with modern comforts and facilities, creating a welcoming atmosphere and retaining the alpine charm of the building. There is a huge range of outdoor activities such as walking and cycling possible from your doorstep as well as a wide range of river pursuits (kayak / rafting access from the village) and mountain sports in the area (skiing at Kanin just ten minutes drive).

Couldn't be better
We spent four nights at the Polovnik House with a group of six people and we LOVED the house. The appartment was clean, comfortable, warm and the log burner in the living room made the atmosphere even better. The rooms had a great size, the kitchen was well equipped and in the cellar you can chop your own wood. For New Year's we were welcomed by the village people with some mulled wine, so we felt really welcomed not just in the house but also in the area. The surroundings were picture perfect (mountains, river, forest), there is a chance to do some little walks and to go to the nearby village to get some food in a comfy restaurant. We had no car for our trip, but we had no problem to get to Srpenica by bus. On the way back we took the taxi to Ljubljana, and for six people the price was really ok. There is nothing I could complain about this house, since it was perfect and we will always remember our stay in this little place.

Cozy and Great Location
We enjoyed our stay at this pleasant, spacious and well-located home. We would recommend it to others! There is no air conditioning but the fans in the bedrooms help with the heat. Also, the little village doesn’t have a market so plan to stock up on food items before you arrive! The in and out was very convenient and the neighbors were very friendly too! Thanks for the welcome basket too!

Beautiful and charming house in a quiet neighbourhood
This beautiful house is recently renovated and is very well equipped. We found the double bed too small for two persons. Although it is a very quiet village with friendly neighbours you have to endure the ringing bells of the church (right in front of the house) early in the morning. It is an excellent base for different activities (hiking, canyoning,..) We even crossed the border to Italy visited Cividale del Friuli.

Beautiful, comfortable, roomy house by the Soca River
Finished to a high standard, this house was charming, practical and a delight to stay in. We used the house as a base to explore the surrounding region, including kayaking on the Soca River (stunning!) and walking in the mountains and foothills. Perfectly located in a quiet village, only a few minutes drive from Bovec, the location ensured we could maximise our time out exploring. Italy is practically next door (we flew in to Venice Treviso and drove to the house) and with so much to see and do in the Julian Allps we didn't have a dull day. Looking forward to returning again soon!

Comfortable house in a peaceful location
We used the house as a base for a week's kayaking. Polovnik Hous was just as described on the web site. It has recently been fully renovated to a high standard. There is everything you need in the house to be fully independent and it is very comfortable. The village is quiet but there are bars and restaurants a short distance away. It was a great place to relax in a peaceful location. Although there is satellite TV and an internet connection if you feel the need them. I would recommend the property as a good base for anyone visiting the area.

Great Cottage for access to river Soca
Stayed here for a long weekends Kayaking on the river Soca, the cottage is well located and close to the river access points for Rafting and Kayaking. The house has been finished to a high standard and the kitchen is well equipped. Comfortable beds and lounge for relaxing after a hard day spent outdoors. There is a great little restaurant in the village with good food and this is a short stroll from the house.

charming house in a quiet and peaceful area of the Julian Alps with great adventure nearby
This house has been charmingly restored so that it is modern and extremely well equipped inside but sitting in a lovely village with warm and friendly people across the square from the church and it's daily tolling bells.. .Spectacular views all around with quiet walks to the river and adventure sports ,canyonning ,kayaking and rafting close by .There is a restaurant up the lane which has excellent pizza and good reasonable local cuisine .Look for the colorful bread and fish vans which park in the square and sell wonderful homemade bread and fresh fish bi weekly.. I highly recommend a stay at Polovnik House if you are at all interested in outdoor adventure sports summer or winter or if you just want to relax in the shadow of the Alps and enjoy the hospitality and peacefulness of a small village in Slovenia.. ..
